I was looking for a quick getaway this past July and I found this great little place in the Lake Erwin area of Big Bear. The location is better than I expected, at the end of a quiet street. The view is this big meadow backed by the mountain range. There are horses grazing totally idyllic, I felt far from the urban jungle I was escaping.
In a place where "country cabin" is the norm, the decor was refreshingly modern and new. Space is well thought out, and considering it's a one bedroom house we had plenty of room.
I slept in the bedroom and the bed was really comfortable I slept great. My friend slept on the pullout sofa and she said it was comfortable too. It wasn't cold this time of year but I noticed there were plenty of blankets to wrap up with so they're ready for the winter. I'm not really a snow person but for those who are I can imagine how nice it would be getting a fire going in the fireplace when it's snowing outside.
The unexpected surprise was the front porch was a such a great place to hang out and have coffee in the morning and enjoy the view, By afternoon the house shaded the porch, so we spent the majority of our time out there. We definately used the BBQ!
There's some great hiking trails nearby. Walking through the neighborhood we discovered a flat road that curves around the lake we walked each morning. Ahhhh, clean mountain fresh air!!
I had a really great time here and I totally recommend this place. Great price, view A++,quiet.
