COZY CUSTOM BIG BEAR LOG HOME WITH FABULOUS LAKEVIEW!!!
Walking distance to the Village, lake and marinas!
For the genuine Big Bear experience, Alpine Lodge delivers both beautiful lake vistas as well as a location within a few blocks of the lake and the quaint and charming Village of Big Bear.
The cabin is located in prestigious Ironwoods Estates known for its luxury cabins and views. Take a stroll to Starbucks for your morning latte, or, if you prefer, have your coffee on the deck looking at the beautiful lake as you plan your day, whether it be an activity or just lounging around.
The custom built log cabin is truly special. It was built in 1998 by the local Gilligan family and holds the distinguished 'Gilligan' name known for a motif that is all Big Bear from the log beds to most all the furniture, lighting fixtures and lamps to the bedding and accessories. I have decorated it in such a way for you to get the true feeling of Big Bear when you are here, with a warm, cozy, mountain feel that includes all the amenities. Even the curtain rods are made out of tree branches from the area. It has a wonderful ambience of a mountain cabin with knotty pine walls and windows that let in just the right amount of light. Afghans, throw pillows, down comforters, river rock fireplaces and cushy furniture add to the coziness.
Alpine Lodge’s stereo system was installed in 2004 and includes surround sound and a DVD/CD player for your enjoyment.
The great room has a high vaulted pine ceiling with log beams, a floor to ceiling river rock fireplace with gas jet, a gourmet kitchen that is open to the great room separated by a tiled kitchen island bar area that seats 5 for comfortable entertaining.
The dining table has a wonderful lake view. It is made of knotty pine and there are 8 log carved chairs. The river rock fireplace can be seen from the entire great room area as well as the deck for a warm ambience for entertaining.
The kitchen has a filtered cold water spigot on the refrigerator and an ice maker. It comes with a Belgian Waffle maker, 6 slice toaster, pancake griddle and enough pots and pans to serve a Thanksgiving dinner. It is a cook’s kitchen made for entertaining or family fun with plenty of room for everyone. The floor is slate and the counters are tiled.
There is a game drawer in the TV/stereo armoire that has board games, cards, poker chips, DVD’s and jig saw puzzles for your use.
WIFI internet access is throughout the cabin.

About The Owner
I've rented other cabins in various areas for years and I fell in love with Big Bear the first time I went there. It had it all from the lake, to the ski hills and the quaint Village of Big Bear. I furnished the cabin with the coziness and ambience that I wanted for myself with my visits. It truly is my mountain retreat.
The Owner purchased this cabin in 2004
Why The Owner chose Big Bear Lake
I preferred being near the Village and the Lake so I could walk my dog to the areas myself yet I wanted a view of the Lake rather than the ski hills. So I chose Ironwood Estates. I can be close to what's happening but still in my private space. It's the best to be sitting in the spa on the deck and watching the eagles and then take a short stroll to the Village later. Can leave the car in the garage.
What makes this cabin unique
The living area centers around the decks and the view of the lake. It has two large sliders leading from the great room to the decks with the spa, gas bbq and cushy deck furniture. Year round you can use the river rock fireplaces to cast a warm feeling throughout the great room that can be seen from the spa on the deck. There's nothing like it. It's truly a place to unwind and relax while breathing in the freshest of air. I have a dog so I have set the cabin up for her safety in fencing in the backyard to include the deck so that she can explore the grounds and still be safe while I'm relaxing on the deck or in the spa. Motion detectors go on as she passes by so that you know where she is even at night as she goes down the stairs to the yard. I have WIFI throughout the cabin as well as cable for internet hookup. Good stereo system with surround sound. Comfortable beds, pillows and blankets. You won't be disappointed.
