This house is exactly what it looks like in the pictures posted. It's exactly what I expected out of my stay and even more! Kari, the owner, was extremely easy to communicate with and her house is a special find for our situation. We recently stayed up in Big Bear with 2 families including 4 boys (a set of 5 year olds and a set of 7 year olds - rambunctious) and a dog. We had never been to Big Bear during the summer and we had such an amazing time even just right out in front of the house, playing in the lake. This place was perfect in every way for us.
