ENJOY HISTORICALLY LOW RATES IN BIG BEAR'S ONLY 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 less than $75 a night? Well, that rate is even better in the Bear Country Farmhouse, a two-bedroom, two-bath property with a fully equipped kitchen in the heart of Big Bear. Only the nightly rate here is only $60 a night! The only other cost is a low $40 cleaning fee. That's right. Just $160 for a three-day, two-night weekend 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 with the first covering of early spring growth.

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.

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.)

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.

IT WAS OUR BEST BIG BEAR EXPERIENCE EVER!

  • 5 of 5
I'd simply say it was our best Big Bear experience ever! This cozy farmhouse & the owner David made the difference! We fell in love with this farmhouse as soon as we opened the front door. We spent most of our time staying in the house, rather than going anywhere else. You'll feel as comfortable as you are at home! Highly recommend to all.

BEAUTIFUL AND CHARMING HOME

  • 5 of 5
We were two couples with little children and we loved this place. It was very clean and well cared for. The owner came to meet us with the key and was very friendly. The decor was charming and they home was fully stocked with everything we needed. The location was close to town and the lake with beautiful views of the mountains. We'd like to come back again.

VALUE, LOCATION, AND OWNER MAKE THE FARMHOUSE AN EXCELLENT RENTAL ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
David, the property owner, is the difference maker for the Farmhouse. He's attentive over email -- quick to respond and follow-up with a phone call -- and patient. He helped us book the Farmhouse last minute and still managed to make sure the Farmhouse was clean and cozy for our arrival. And, after we'd departed, he went above and beyond to help with a PayPal issue when promptly refunding our deposit.
The Farmhouse makes a great home base for excursions around the lake. From the Farmhouse, it's easy to bike/walk to the marsh path and/or drive into Big Bear Village. And, being just a bit out of the village fray, it seems like a quiet getaway inside the cozy, quaint house.
David, combined with the very reasonable fall rates offered, helps the Farmhouse be a low-stress, low-key, low-cost retreat.

WONDERFUL STAY AT AN AMAZING HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came up here for a couple nights to get away for our anniversary. The pictures of the farmhouse don't do it justice. It is so cute, cozy, and inviting. It is in a perfect location near the airport. It would be great in the winter because you don't have to drive up any of the smaller mountain roads. Also, David was so kind and made sure we had everything that we needed during our stay. Can't wait to stay here again!

WONDERFUL STAY AT THE FARMHOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful time at the farmhouse. David was so great to work with and he even recommend a great breakfast place! I'm looking forward to my next trip back to the farmhouse. Such a beautiful and well kept place. My husband & I got in late on a Friday night but David left lights on for us and even the fireplace was going when we got there! Very thoughtful.

Map

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! ;-)
