100 YDS TO NATIONAL PARK / 1/2 MILE TO SWIM & FISH / 1 MILE TO VILLAGE

Big Bear Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This spacious mountain home has the 'feel' of a cabin, the 'comfort' of a home, and the 'affordability' of a local motel. We want to let you know everything available to you this summer (see below). We are new to the business of renting out our treasured home and we would very much like to share the benefits of building a 'returning guest' list. In order to do that, we price our home low, while offering all the pleasures our guests might anticipate.

Our greatest feature, however, is our location. Although we are located just minutes from Snow Summit, the Village and the lake, we are just outside the 'busy' city, up the hill about 1/4 mile, on a dead end street which affords less traffic, and an elevated view. Adjacent to the end of the street, begins a series of hiking trails maintained by the San Bernardino National Forest.

Imagine entering the 'cabin-like' living room and dining room, then walking through the well-stocked kitchen with an island and breakfast bar, past the stairs leading up to the second level bedrooms, bath and balcony, then entering the master bedroom, complete with king sized bed, wood burning fireplace, large closet space and master bath on the right. Through the sliding glass doors, you see a balcony with an inviting view that can be seen while lounging in the spa, or just sitting around the natural gas BBQ.

Our winter guests will enjoy the convenience of a natural gas heating system, fireplaces in two of the bedrooms, and a pot-bellied stove in the living room. We have a mud room/laundry room with a deep utility sink that you’ll find very useful. The large, two-car garage comes in very handy during snow conditions.

Big Bear averages about five or six good snowfalls a year, and the nearby Ski Slopes manage to keep open between snowfalls. But in case you’re not overjoyed about putting on snow chains, you’ll find that there are many days where the roads are open to all vehicles. So why not take the kids for a two-night stay. After a good snowfall, kids will enjoy great sledding right in our neighborhood.

Sincerely, Karen Hickey, Owner

Scot and I both grew up in Southern California. We remember taking advantage of the local skiing in Big Bear during the winter and attending YMCA camp during the summer.

Mellody purchased this house in 2007

Scot's parents, Bruce & Mellody Anderson offered us a joint investment in a cabin located nicely for potential renters. In addition to being just minutes from all that Big Bear has to offer, the structure sits on a hill with views extending for miles. We are also towards the top of a dead-end street, so there is very little traffic and a sense of privacy.

Close to the Lake. Close to Snow Summit Mountain Ski resort. Close to the village. Close to Hiking Trails in the San Bernardino National Park adjacent to our street. Close to stores and restaurants.

Great cabin and location

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. Up the hill are hiking trails in the forest that we did with our 3 small kids and it's close to fishing and the lake (drive). The cabin is very big and the rooms are spacious. Loved the decks and the hot tub!

I was amazed at how perfect this cabin was for my trip! I came to celebrate my birthday with a few friends, and the cabin fit all of our needs. The rooms were perfect, and the master bedroom was amazing!! Having the 2 car garage was great, both of our cars fit perfectly. The cabin was fully stocked with all the cookware, glasses, utensils, paper towels, toilet paper and pretty much anything we needed. The location was great! Very close to snow summit, the shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this cabin to a small family, or a group of friends. It was perfect for my group, there were 3 couples, and we all got our own private rooms, and there were also 3 full baths, so we all had our own bathroom. I have spoken with the owners a few times, and they were very nice, helpful and informative on activities to do, the weather, and genuinely wanted to make sure my group had everything we needed to ensure we enjoyed our stay. I am definitely planning on booking this cabin again!! I had an amazing weekend!

Perfect location, great property!

  • 5 of 5
I recently spent a weekend here to celebrate my 25th birthday with 5 friends. The cabin was great - we had plenty of space and activities so that we were not on top of each other at all. In two days we enjoyed the hot tub, bbq, pool table, dart board, puzzles, movie selections, and even made it to the lake! Not to mention the house itself was gorgeous. Thank you Mellody and Bruce for a great weekend!

Love this place!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented this house for the 4th of July week and it turned out to be much much more than we ever imagined! The owner, Mellody, was wonderful from the very beginning and ever so helpful. The place is absolutely beautiful! It is very clean and well kept. If you stay here you wont be disappointed. It was so relaxing and peaceful but had everything we could ask for as far as amenities go. There are televisions in each bedroom and living room with cable and wifi. My son is in a wheelchair and he had pretty of room to get around and since there is a bedroom on the main floor it was perfect for him. We will definitely be renting again!

Owner promptly attended to concerns

  • 4 of 5
We had problems with the water heater and the owner was sick but she had it fixed right away. Thanks Mellody! Large rooms with king-size beds. Kitchen was well stocked. Lots of board games for kids and my son enjoyed the jacuzzi right outside the master's bedroom. It was just 1mile away from Snow Summit and it was perfect for my snowboarding kids. We'll be back soon...Jackie

Great Get Away

This was such a perfect get away rental with everything you could need to make the stay comfortable. The kids especially liked the dart board and the pool table.

As you can see on the map, we are on a dead-end street which keeps traffic down. We are close (200 yards) to the 'Town Trail' maintained by the San Bernardino National Park if you are interested in a little hiking. Just down the hill from us about 1/4 mile is Big Bear Blvd which is the main road from the Village to the Ski Slopes and Downtown shops and grocery stores. Our home has the 'feel' of a mountain cabin because when you're on one of our two balconies, you don't even realize that there are neighbors. You're not down in a 'neighborhood' that probably looks similar to the place at home where you're trying to 'get-a-way' from. What can I say? You'll love it!

Other Activities: shopping, boating, snowboarding, mini golf
