Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 25, 2016
House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

ACCOMMODATIONS: This 3-story log home of 2,700+ sq. feet has a lakeview, 5 bedrooms and 3 baths and comfortably accommodates 10 persons for your family gatherings and retreats all year round. Enjoy the Game Room with its Warrior Foosball Table and 7 ft. Viper Arctic Ice Air Hockey Table and 55” HDTV and DVD player.

On the main second floor is the comfortable and “woodsy” living room with wood burning fireplace, entertainment center containing the flat screen cable HDTV, DVD player, CD player and stereo; dining room with adjacent sitting area; and fully stocked kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher to handle the big meals.

The large circular walnut dining table seats 8-10 and has a fold-out card table top with poker chips great for “Texas Hold Em” and other entertaining card and board games. The second floor also contains a second full bath and the enclosed sunroom porch with lakeview, casual bar and electronic dart board. Relax on the expansive 400+ sq. ft. deck with its lakeview and plenty of patio furniture and propane BBQ for outdoor seating and dining during non-winter months

The top third floor has two large master bedrooms, each with a king size bed and one even has its own wood burning fireplace for quiet getaway time. There is a shared full bath on this level.

The first floor is nearly a “separate home” with the log-lined Game Room, three bedrooms (one with an extra cable TV), bath and laundry room with regular size washer and dryer. The three real-sized bedrooms sleep seven on 1 queen size bed and 5 single beds. This floor provides the kids with their separate space for entertainment, video and table games and even sleeping while the adults relax upstairs.

LINEN & CLEANING SERVICES: Full linen service and cleaning services are included. Bear Lodge has a long flat driveway for easy access and parking pad for plenty of vehicles.

SNOW DAYS: Bear Lodge is on the “sunny” North Shore of Big Bear Lake and has the advantage of facing south and west so the roads are quickly cleared of snowfall and have very few icy patches. The North Shore is also the “quiet side” of the lake and the bend-in-the-road town of Fawnskin and its small residential community is surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest. The ski resorts at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit (6 miles away) are a quick and dry 10 minute drive on the “Fawnskin Freeway”. It is easier and quicker to get to the ski resorts from Fawnskin rather than fighting the heavy traffic and sometimes icy and snow conditions through Big Bear Village. The key is whether the roads are dry and fast as opposed to wet and icy in the shade; and the advantage goes to the sunny North Shore.

CAPTAIN JOHN’S MARINA: Within a short walk of Bear Lodge is the public Dana Point Park and Captain John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina with its complete supply of boating craft including entertaining pontoon boats, fishing boats, canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and jet skis for the young at heart.

DISCOVERY CENTER & OBSERVATORY: Definitely visit the Big Bear Discovery Center one mile down the road for educational exhibits, talks and eagle tours in season. The “Adventure Pass” for the National Forest can be purchased here or at the nearby Ranger Station. The Cal Tech Solar Observatory is on this stretch of road and is open to visitors during the summer months.

HIKING & BIKING: The North Shore also offers a three mile level and paved "walking and biking trail" that takes visitors along the shoreline to Cypress Point and to the east end of the lake at Stanfield Cut-off. The U.S. Ranger Station provides hiking and trail maps including the route up to the Pacific Crest Trail which goes from Alaska to Baja California.

TOWN OF FAWNSKIN: The North Shore Café in Fawnskin provides guests and locals with excellent cuisine and hearty food at reasonable prices with friendly hometown service. Grab a cool beverage at the Moose Lodge and explore a great shop The North Shore Trading Company for unique clothing, furnishings and gifts. The Fawnskin Market carries the basic necessities until you get to Von’s or Stater Bros. on the other side.

BIG ADVANTAGE: Local professional property manager for check-ins & outs, linen service, cleaning service and emergencies. You call and see someone local, not 50 miles away down the hill.

ENJOY BEAR LODGE ON THE BEST SIDE OF THE LAKE --- THE NORTH SHORE!!!

Had to call maintenance 3 times

  • 3 of 5

The listing location description was accurate. The inside of the cabin was clean and well maintained. When we arrived to the cabin, by the shed there are two trash cans; both trash cans had trash in them (you need to dump out your own trash at one of the trash locations in Big Bear or else you will be charged $25 a bag). There were cigarette buds in the patio and around the cabin (I had to let maintenance know or else they'd charge me for not picking them up). The water and pilot to the water heater were not on, so when we arrived we had no water. I had to call maintenance three times on the day we arrived. First I called because there was no water, the second time I called was because there was no hot water and I had to call a third time because maintenance did not show up the second time. Everything should have been checked and working prior to our arrival.

Perfect Mountain Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this Fawnskin log home during a birthday weekend celebration with friends. The cabin is tastefully decorated and equipped with everything we needed. There's tons of room for everyone to lounge and relax. And with three bathrooms/showers, there was hardly any waiting time when getting ready. The kitchen is fully equipped and was roomy enough for all the chefs whipping up our group's taco night! Also, the cabin has a brand new gas grill. The poker table and huge case of chips was perfect for our group's Texas Hold 'Em games! And our mornings were spent relaxing out in the sun room and on the deck enjoying our coffee, breakfast and a gorgeous view of the lake. So peaceful. Our mountain getaway was everything we were looking for! We will definitely be back!!

Words Can't Describe This Place

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is so unreal! It's more than what was described in the listing on VRBO. The cabin was perfectly located: situated in a quiet area, near the marina and just a brief drive from Fawnskin Village where the Renaissance Faire was taking place. We were surprised when a Car Show drove by for an hour right in front of the cabin! Classic cars, vintage cars, and lots of friendly people. This cabin is a must for all vacationers in the Big Bear area. We definitely will stay here again! It had everything one can ask for! Even the property manager, Eileen, was so friendly and so very helpful. She assisted in making our stay even that much better than ever dreamed! Wonderful cabin, completely loaded, and well taken care of. Great view of the lake too! This is definitely over a 5 star rating!

These posted pictures dont do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

I am going to say it again.. These posted pictures dont do it justice! The place was gorgeous, fit everyone so comfortably.

From the beginning, The lady I believe her name was Eileen, was remarkable. I think i bugged her about over 20x before the trip and she was beyond helpful.

5 couple went on this trip and all weekend, everyone was raving on how beautiful the place was. The rooms were comfortable, a little sad we didnt see the place when it snowed because im sure it would have been breath taking.

We were definitely loud but tried our best to keep it all inside the cabin to not bother the neighbors! A sweet old couple to the side of the house said we were not loud at all. We even helped them move some furniture in exchange for our loud, drinking behavior. The only thing that was bad was some of us got cold water on our showers but keep in mind there were 10 of us, so its understandable.

A couple recommendations for the owner and management:

- get a jacuzzi, im sure you will make the money back very quickly. i think a lot of cabins are trying to do this now and im sure it will be an eye catcher for most renters. i know thats what we were looking for and a little sad this place didnt have one

- take some more current pictures of the place. the place is beautiful

GREAT FOR MY FIRST TIME AT BIG BEAR

  • 4 of 5

I was so excited when I arrived! The house was big and perfect for my friends and I. As we settled in, we couldn't help but just relax by the grill and stare at the lake. It was beautiful. I will be coming back soon! =)
