I first visited Lakefront Fisherman's Paradise just before Christmas last year. I attended a friend's party there, but did not stay overnight. I was so enchanted with the place, we made a reservation to return this June.
I could not believe the changes that the owners made. I thought that the old kitchen was perfectly acceptable, even nice, but the new kitchen is mind blowing. The photos do not do it justice! The cabinets are magnificent and the stainless steel appliances are beautiful. The upper cabinets were removed from the living room side and the lakefront side, making the spectacular lake view even more pronounced. The cooks in the kitchen are now in the middle of the party; not cut off. I have never had more fun cooking!
I was not in the old master bath, but I could live in the new one. The shower has 3 body sprays, an overhead rain shower and a hand held shower. They can all be used together or separately. There is a bench, so you can relax completely. You never have to reset the temperature after your first shower. I asked Joe, the owner, about the fixtures and he told me they were Hansgrough. My daughter-in-law is a decorator and she told me that the fixtures are only used in the most luxurious homes.
The other reviews cover the wonderful views, dock, amenities, decks, etc, and all I can add is that I would have been even more effusive in my descriptions. All of your troubles simply melt away while relaxing on the deck or the dock.
Are there any negatives? Yes. We were there with 4 other couples. The three couples in the three bedrooms were as comfortable as in a 5 star hotel. Two of the couples, however, had to sleep in the basement playroom. This room is very large with a sleeping alcove on one end and a trundle on the other end, with pool table, TV, and couches in the middle. While the two couples loved the place and had absolutely no complaints, I would not have liked the lack of privacy. The basement/playroom is a perfect place for kids, for same sex people, or couples under 40. For a single couple or a couple with their own kids, it would be perfect.
The place was immaculate, and Joe, the owner, could not have been more helpful.
I cannot conceive of a more beautiful, more comfortable, or more fun place to stay in Big Bear Lake than this home. I can’t wait to go back.
