Thanks, quite admirable Jason, no doubt the reason there are so many positive reviews.
My husband and I have stayed here a number of times and have enjoyed ourselves everytime. Great location, top notch amenities, owners very accommodating, and all around wonderful experience. Looking at the stars from the jacuzzi is fabulous!
We had a perfect vacation 8 day vacation at snow summit and staying in this Cabin was a very important part of it. The owner is easy to work with, direct and transparent communications.
Everything you need is included and the cabin is just as the pictures shown and the amenities as described. The area is quiet and relaxing eventhough it is convenientely located close to the snow summit parking area. Weekend crowds and traffic was not an issue for us and we were able to go back and forward from the skiing area.
Being a one story home makes moving in very easy, full of day-ligth and the level of energy just right. The jacuzzi is state of the art, my wife and I enjoyed so much after our Long Ski days. The deck and area sorrounding the home was covered with snow and the kids enjoyed playing around the pine trees chasing squirrels and little bunnies.
We love'd it and hope to go back again next winter; Jason thanks for sharing this property with us!
The best thing about this house is that it is very close to Snow Summit! We were visiting during the snowy time, so that was a big plus. The worst things, however, were the beds. All three beds were extremely uncomfortable! My son woke up with back spasms that forced us to go home early. The pictures on the VRBO site were quite deceiving. Perhaps they remodeled in 2011, but a little paint over the scuffs on the walls and perhaps new curtains on the kitchen door would be an improvement. We couldn't get the internet to work. Also, I would suggest providing an extra roll of toilet paper, an extra bag for garbage and a few more hangers. I'll finish my review with good comments. We loved the jacuzzi hot tub and nice kitchen. It was also handy to hang our jackets by the front door. That's it - Good Luck!!!
The pictures tell you exactly what you get. Wonderful location a block away from Snow Summit. Street had less then 5 cars a day go past. This was the first time I have used Vrbo, Jason made this so very easy. Emails were answered immediately.
The owners have put some work into this house. The house is nicely furnished and very inviting. Everything we needed was already there waiting for us. The hot tub on deck was clean and ready to go after the drive up. All rooms felt spacious with wonderful view of the great outdoors!
I highly recommend this rental to anyone wanting to be near all and still have a peaceful paradise to relax! I will definitely be stating there again!
This was my first time at Big Bear, and I have to say, I had a great time. Not sure I'd do a cabin again versus a bed and breakfast, as the costs were pretty similar, but the privacy of renting a house to yourself was really pretty cool. If I do cabin again, this would definitely be a place I'd be happy to come back to.
The place was really enjoyable. It looked just about what it was in the pictures, although the couch placement had changed a bit. The kitchen looked pretty new. The ice maker doesn't work, but ice was left in the freezer conveniently. We didn't do much more than sleep in the cabin, but we did make one meal -- it was kind of nice, and felt like being at home, but with more room than we're used to. Hot tub is bromide vs chlorine. I kind of like the smell of it versus chlorine, but some might not care for it as much. Be aware if you're bromine sensitive. Rental contract states two weeks for deposit return, and I'm coming up on that now -- no deposit return yet, but I haven't asked for it either. Just don't expect a rapid deposit refund. The deposit was new to me, so I took photos of the place as entered and as I left, just in case I'd need it.
For the techies out there: High speed Internet is stretching it, as I was getting about 1.5mbps downstream and .5 upstream on an apparent DSL connection -- but I was out here to get away. Out of curiosity, I checked if there were other faster options, but the local cable carriers didn't' even recognize the address. I suspect it's the fastest option in the area. Just don't expect huge speed out of it. We resorted to VZW LTE on our iPads, which was marginally faster. My AT&T cell phone was about the same speed on HSPA+, so I left that on WiFi. TV had a generous package, but wasn't connected to the internet and therefore DVR functionality was disabled. Mildly annoying, as I like pausing Live TV.
I can imagine in winter, this would be the PERFECT location for skiers -- it's literally a 300 ft walk or so up the hill to the ski lodge resort. It's not too far from the lake, either, but in summer if the lake is your thing, there are other properties a bit closer. Weather was a bit warm that weekend, and I found myself wishing there was AC, but overnight it gets chilly. If you're new to big bear, like me, expect the feel of two seasons in the same day. It reminded me a lot like Flagstaff. Great town, great place. I'd definitely come back again.
Overall, I'm happy to recommend this place!
My wife and I stayed here with two other couples and our two labs. The cabin was very clean and well kept, just like the pictures showed. We stayed here in the beginning of fall so there was no snow but it was less than a 5 minute walk to snow summit.
ADDRESS: 783 ST. MORITZ DRIVE, BIG BEAR LAKE, CA 92315
This beautiful chalet style home was built in 1973 and totally remodeled on May 15, 2011!!!!! This is not a traditional Big Bear cabin. It is light, bright, remodeled and contemporary. You will not find another like ours and our recent 20k investment in the property is a continued reminder to our loyal guests that we care.
Located at the bottom of Snow Summit Mountain, you can walk to the parking lot in 1 minute and be on the lift shortly thereafter... Literally!!! It has all the amenities you desire in a relaxing and fun mountain getaway, including modern furnishings but since it is on a private, non-through street, you do not have any of the traffic or noise.
Free shuttle from Snow Summit to Bear Mountain. Snow Summit is the only resort to offer night skiing. Just two and a half minutes from the lake, restaurants and all of Big Bear's attractions. There is a brand new HotSprings Spa, model is Relay.
Other Activities: sledding, water slide
