The cabin was on the smaller side of a 3 bedroom, but it is laid out really well and still felt comfortable enough for 4 adults and 2 young kids to feel like we had PLENTY of room. The seating area outside was adorable, the kids loved running around on the dock and going up and down the small hill that connected the dock to the outdoor area. All the outside areas were fenced off enough fo us to feel safe letting the kids run around.

The cabin was VERY well maintained. Clearly a lot of love went into the place, and they sem to still be doing more improvements to an already charming property. Kitchen was stacked (perhaps it could use a few more forks), even had a full spice cupboard. We like to cook and it was very comfortable cooking there.

The views are stellar, the neighbors all seemed nice and the hot tub and fireplace were great perks. We would return here for sure. Lorri was excellent to work with. A really relaxing and fun time.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Big Bear. Upon walking into the home, you see the beautiful view of the lake. The house is decorated nicely. It has a comfortable and cozy feeling. It was super clean and had everything we needed and more. We were close to where we rented a boat, close to town, and close to the hiking trail we took.We would definitely recommend staying at this lovely home.

Perfect Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The view of the lake is spectacular, and the breeze that flows through the house was lovely! It was a very comfortable layout for small children and grandparents. We loved it! The neighborhood is beautiful and fun to go bike riding in or running through. The kitchen had everything we needed for all home-cooked meals. The outdoor space is impressive and so enjoyable. But nothing beats the beautiful view of the stars at night over the lake. Thank you for sharing the home with us!

First time at Big Bear

  • 4 of 5

We appreciated staying at this cabin on the lake. Lorri was very helpful and one of the sweetest VRBO owners I've talked to!

Overall pros:

1. Location! The cabin is situated in such a nice neighborhood and the lake access is wonderful. The property has a few sitting areas to sit back and relax or watch the water activities on the lake.

2. View from cabin of lake

3. Hot tub

4. The cabin is fully equipped and thoughtfully planned out for guests.


1. There was really only one. The cabin was not very clean when we came but that may not always be the case. It needs a deep cleaning and maybe some general upkeep, especially considering the price. Otherwise, all was great!

Best Family Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We love coming as often as we can to this beautiful spot in Big Bear with gorgeous lake views. The decor and amenities give it that "home away from home" feel. Favorite aspect is all the places outside on the back patio and sunroom that you can sit and enjoy the water. Over the four days we were there we went swimming, fished, kayaked, took a pontoon boat out and hiked. After all that a soak in the jacuzzi was just right. Something for everyone! Have all that you need in the kitchen too. Highly recommend this place and Lorri is fantastic to work with. Hope to go back soon...

From the Owner

We fell in love with our lake front home at first sight. The view and deep water dock location are among the best on the lake. We live in San Diego and enjoy the short 2 hour drive to our lake front mountain retreat where we leave our worries behind.
