WALK TO OKTOBERFEST FROM THIS ENCHANTING FARMHOUSE

Big Bear City Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Remember when you could rent a motel room for $75 a night? Well, that's the rate available in the Bear Country Farmhouse, a two-bedroom, two-bath property with a fully equipped kitchen in the heart of Big Bear. You can also walk to Big Bear's popular Oktoberfest celebration being held every weekend now through the end of October. The $150 two-night rent is then taxed 8% by the county, adding $12 to your total; the only other cost is a low $50 cleaning fee. That's right. Just $212 total in this special retreat that will take you back to childhood memories with your grandparents.

This is no ordinary cabin. Smack dab in the middle of Big Bear is this charming farmhouse, complete with its own windmill and backyard barn. Now is the perfect time to go back to a simpler period in America when a weekend getaway didn't cost as much as a down payment on the family car! This one-of-a-kind farmhouse with its many amenities is central to the best Big Bear has to offer.

'What makes the farmhouse so special?' you may be asking. The barn-red and cottage-white farmhouse looks much as it would in the early 1900s. All floors are wide-plank pine, and the T&G ceilings are supported by massive wood beams. Care has been taken to keep today’s modern gadgets – the TVs, DVD players and appliances -- behind closed doors to maintain the look of an early American farmhouse.

In the large, eat-in kitchen, the cottage-white, bead-board wainscoting and barn-red walls surround a room filled with country charm. Farm antiques, such as an old milk storage container and early American utensils, add to the kitchen’s country look. There’s even a deep, double farmhouse sink! You also have the convenience of a washer/dryer in the kitchen, but since it isn't the ringer-type model your grandmother used, you’ll find it hidden behind the barn doors of the laundry closet.

As soon as the sun dips below the west end of the lake, falling temperatures quickly follow on the mountain. That’s when you will want to gather ‘round the gas fireplace in the living room that keeps the farmhouse toasty warm on chilly nights. There are additional wall heaters in both baths, as well as room heaters in both bedrooms. The linen closet is also filled with numerous blankets and quilts.

When it's time to tuck in the young ones, climb the pine staircase to the second floor where the two bedrooms are separated by a full bath. The master bedroom contains a queen-sized bed and armoire, complete with a TV and DVD unit. There’s also a spacious, mirrored closet. The second bedroom (fondly known as the Blue Bear Room) has a bead-board trundle bed with two twin mattresses that can be set up in a number of configurations. This bedroom has sliding glass doors that open to an observation deck with views of the Green, Gold and Eagle Mountain ranges that are particularly beautiful when covers with the hues of fall.

Back downstairs, two more individuals can drift off to sleep watching the flickering flames of the fireplace from the queen sofa bed in the living room. There is a convenient bath just down the hall. That brings the total sleeping accommodations at the farmhouse to six.

For the night owls who don’t want the day to end, there’s a large screen television and DVD player with access to hundreds of movie and sports channels in the living room china cabinet. Wi-Fi is available, of course. You will want to tell distant friends and family of the perfect place you have discovered for future vacations in Big Bear!

Cease the opportunity to experience the Bear Country Farmhouse this weekend at this amazing rate. The first one to call 888-424-5211 is in for a special experience on the mountain. Or you can respond through VRBO to reserve the farmhouse for this amazing last-minute price.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Even through we have only been married a few years, we have started some "traditions" of our own. One of them is welcoming every New Year in a special location that reminds us of times past and provides a place where we can plan for the year ahead. Your farmhouse in Big Bear was just perfect! We found a number of old standards to play on the DVD, opened up a bottle of champagne, and toasted the final minutes of 2006 in front of the fire. It really was magic. Thank you for helping a young couple build some wonderful memories together. (Reprinted from the farmhouse guestbook with the permission of Mark Montgomery.)

Nice cabin close to everything!

  • 4 of 5
We loved the Farmhouse in Big Bear. It is close to the village and the lake along with plenty of good hiking trails within a 10 min drive. The best part of the cabin was that we felt very comfortable leaving our dog in the backyard while we went out to enjoy a meal. Cant wait to come back next year.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed here this past weekend and had a very nice time...David was very nice and accommodating and made the entire process very easy. It was just the 2 of us and our dogs and we had more than enough room. They have a fenced in yard which was perfect for us and our dogs loved it. Overall, we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to those who enjoy a nice quite getaway.

One of the best cabin in Big Bear

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed staying at Farmhouse. Cabin was overall clean and nicely decorated. We stayed during the hot August but temperate inside the cabin was very cool, much lower than outside. It is very close to airport, but we did not hear any planes departing or landing at night. Instructions to enter the cabin was very clear. Price is very reasonable and security deposits were refunded same day of departure. Highly recommended

Charming Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5
The overall layout and decor was exactly as expected, very simple and reminiscent of a stay at "Grandma's House". The location was nice close to town and lake. I enjoyed all that was available inside the home, pots, pans, utensils, blankets, towels etc. The kitchen was my favorite area. We enjoyed our stay.

Quaint Place to Stay and Great Rates!

  • 4 of 5
The Farmhouse is cute and quaint. The best thing about it was the attentiveness from the owner. He was very conscientious to ensure everything was in order for arrival and ensuring our understanding of what needed to be done upon our departure. We will definitely be staying there again given the opportunity.

Centrally located in Big Bear, the farmhouse is only a 10-minute drive from all major attractions, including the ski slopes, the Village, and the Performing Arts Center. You can walk to the east end of the lake, as well as a small community store, the best pizza place in all of Big Bear, and the weekly farmer's market at the corner of Division Drive and Big Bear Blvd. on Tuesdays from 8 to 1. You don't have to be a farmer to enjoy this popular local event that offers the freshest fruits and vegetables at the lowest prices in town, but you will feel like one during your time in the farmhouse! Go along with the fantasy and pretend you picked those fruits and vegetables from behind the farmhouse! ;-)
