About Shawn

We love this little log cabin- A great getaway any time of year!

We love to escape the desert heat with Maxwell (pictured), to A Sweet Pine Cabin as often as we can. We think it is the quintessential mountain cabin and is exactly what we dreamed a cabin should be. We've had a blast decorating and upgrading this vintage 'Maltby' cabin with the help of our professional designer gal-pals... Thank you P&S!!

'Maltby' is the most well-known mid-century architect of Big Bear; during the heyday of the 1940's. In addition to small utterly charming custom residential log cabins, Maltby did many vintage hotels etc. during that period. Just pick-up any of the historical books on Big Bear and you'll be likely see some of his more 'monumental' architecture!.

We chose to maintain many original vintage elements, as it really adds to the charm while maintaining the authenticity of this very 'real' log-cabin.

We also really wanted a place that had plenty of room for pets, as we are BIG animal lovers, small & large, they are definitely members of the family too!

Shawn purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Shawn chose Big Bear City

We fell in love with the style and charm of A Sweet Pine Cabin. And the large fenced yard is perfect for our 4-legged family members.

What makes this cabin unique

relax, eat, relax, eat, relax.... go ski, go fish, go boating, then more relaxing, and oh yeah, hiking and baking fresh apple pies/tarts from the apples on the tree in the yard...

Wonderful cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I desperately needed a girls get away weekend. My friend has dogs that she wanted to bring along, and so I chose this lovely cabin. My friend and I loved every detail of this cabin from the original 40s stove and refrigerator, to all the lovely period decor on the walls. There were wonderful staple supplies in the kitchen and all types of bakeware and cookware available as well! It was definitely a home away from home and extremely comfortable. The large fenced yard was wonderful for my friends dogs and I have never seen them so ready for bed at the end of the day. The cabin was the perfect peaceful, quiet place for us to be able to refuel our spirits! We are already planning our next trip to Sweet Pine cabin and the following one after that! Thank you so much!!!!

The bathroom is a bit narrow (fits perfectly with the 1940s style of the cabin) so I would not recommend this cabin to anyone who is on crutches or in a wheel chair as it would be difficult to navigate it.

Shawn was very responsive and great about sending me all of the information that we needed! I also received an extremely quick refund for the damage deposit.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is so much better than the pictures let on. It is very comfortable: spacious, cute, plenty of land, very well stocked kitchen, and the owners are great. The pictures make the cabin look much smaller than it actually is. We decided to sneak up to Big Bear with a few friends to brave the lack of snow. We were happily surprised by how much was available in the cabin. We decided it would be better to cook in and were very pleasantly surprised by how much was available for us to use. Also, it is well stocked with both games and movies. Shawn, the owner, is very quick to respond and great to work with. The place is far enough out of town that we didn't have to deal with many other tourists, but close enough that we were able to hit the mountain or get into town to grab Starbucks before the caffeine headache hit in the morning. We would definitely stay there again.

Perfect little place!

  • 5 of 5
What an adorable cabin! My best friend and I took our kids there over the long weekend and it was a perfect place for us. After we arrived, I found myself wishing we brought our dog because of the great, fenced in yard. Nice, friendly neighborhood. We spent a lot of time outside and everybody we ran into was friendly. The cabin had everything we needed (dishes, pots, pans, etc) and we were very comfortable. We can't wait to go back again!

Long weekend in Big Bear

  • 5 of 5
Would absolutely recommend Sweet Pine Cabin! This was our family's second stay there. So great to be able to get away and bring the dogs. There was no snow, but we made the best of it (hiking, discovery center, zoo, geocaching, cosmic golf).

Shawn was great to work with. Neighbors were friendly. The cabin was clean and charming as before. We appreciated improvements from our last visit: namely a new TV, brighter bedside lights (yea!), pretty new bedding, and the wooden bridge/rock stream out front.

I understand that the vintage fixtures have limitations, however the living room is quite dark and would really benefit from a bright reading light beside the couch.

Thanks for another great stay at Sweet Pine. We'll be back! In the meantime, crossing fingers and toes for snow...

Excellent Big Bear Rental

  • 5 of 5
The rates were very fair for the holiday season and the property was very clean and well maintained. The decorations were charming and everything was as described in the listing. Instructions were clear and the security deposit was returned extremely quickly.

I would definitely recommend this rental to others and I would stay here again!

Clean, spacious and inviting

  • 5 of 5
Upon check in, we were pleased to park in a secure area and enter the door without issue. We walked in to a well-furnished and extremely clean living room and fell in love immediately. We are clean freaks and are very uncomfortable in places that are substandard but not once during our stay did we notice a stray towel or suspicious hair. Kudos to the housekeeping team! The beds were divine, the sheets luxurious, the rooms spacious, the decor adorable, the neighbors friendly, the location ideal and just an overall OUTSTANDING experience. We will absolutely be back again and will recommend to all of our friends and family. Definitely a great place to bring your family or have a romantic getaway!
