Guestbook comments from the owner
This is probably the best home I have vacationed in; it is truly a beautiful piece of property. We live at the Beach and this was by far superior. This is across from the lake, there are hiking trails and a short drive to both ski resorts (Snow Summit & Bear Mountain). The beds are fantastic, there is a mini-pool table, games and a Hot tub. It is like being at your friends home, nothing like a typical rental. Free access to the internet on the WIFI, many cable movies and games. There was absolutely nothing missing, it is truly set up for 10-14 people, nothing missing. Have a wonderful time!!

We are an active family and enjoy using our mountain retreat for all the activities that exist in the Big Bear Valley. We never run out of places to explore and adventures share, which made Big Bear Lake the perfect location for us to buy a vacation home of our own. One day, we’d like to retire up here – until then, we’re content to try to keep up with our kids! There are endless options of things to do and see here, all under the glorious California sunshine. We hope that you’ll enjoy all that The Lake House at the Shores of Big Bear Lake has to offer!

Michele Vaughn purchased this house in 2013

For years I admired this home with its lake views, excellent location and vintage cottage charm and I dreamed of one day owning it. So when the property went up for sale, we decided to buy it. Our family loves nature and playing outdoors! That's one of the main reasons we chose to buy our vacation home in the city of Big Bear Lake. Due to our work schedules we needed to have a place that our family could escape to within a couple of hours. Big Bear is just a short (and easy) 2 hour drive from our home in Orange County, and only slightly longer for our extended family and friends in Los Angeles and San Diego Counties. Access up the mountain is easy with 3 highways leading up the mountain and right in to the city of Big Bear Lake. Drive time is an important factor when you want to ski and travel on the same day.

Big Bear truly is a 4 season resort area with so much to do year round. We love being centrally located to so many fun activities in every season -- awesome mountain & trail biking throughout Big Bear Valley, hiking & wildlife viewing, fishing & boating on Big Bear Lake and of course great snowboarding & skiing at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain.

The Lake House at the Shores of Big Bear Lake has been a wonderful vacation home in so many ways. After purchasing the home in (2013) we remodeled our home with the idea of hosting large groups of friends and families. At that time almost everything was replaced and upgraded. Our great mountain home, can easily house up to 14 people. The home is unique in that the massive front deck can easily accommodate 14 or more at the patio tables and an additional 6 at the dining table while enjoying the a lake view. Having multiple entertaining areas house allows for large groups to relax together while still having their own space.

The little kids can sled in the backyard on our own small private bunny hill. Experience the large 40 x 30 private deck, grill and hot tub while enjoying the starry night sky. Relax in the Family room with the giant fireplace and your favorite book. Prepare a hearty meal for friends and family in the modern kitchen. End the evening with a game pool in the Sleeping Loft or cuddle up and watch a movie.

Our home is located in the prestigious lakeside community of Gibraltar Point, a quiet residential community. The streets are flat and maintained by the city so during periods of heavy snow our property is still easily accessible. When more than a couple inches of snow falls, our plow service will clear the driveway for you. In the Winter, there is no parking on the city streets but we have a very large, driveway that fits 6 cars.

The lake is directly across the street and in the Summer our renters have access to a boat slip at a small additional fee. Big Bear Lake is a public lake that is 7 miles long and has 21 miles of shoreline.

The Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5
There were 6 adults and 5 children in our group and the house was perfect for our needs! The deck is where we spent most of our time when we were there which offered a great view of the lake and plenty of space for all of us to enjoy! The house was very clean and everything was new and updated. The owner was very friendly and accommodating throughout our stay! We will definitely stay here again...

The Lake House was perfect for our family reunion,

  • 5 of 5
For the last 33 years we have had a cousin reunion in the mountains. Several times at Big Bear, the Lake House was perfect for our family ages from 60's to 5 years old. We loved it!

An Excellent Value for a Lovely Home!

  • 5 of 5
Your house was perfect for our family vacation trip to Big Bear. Everyone in our family had a great trip and we especially loved your house and the location. It was so nice to stay such a well maintained home that was clean and ready when we arrived. The spa and deck were among our favorite amenities and it was very nice for the kids to have their own separate gathering area in the sleeping loft. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and made the check in process very easy. Staying here was an excellent value for a very nice home.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa,

It was our pleasure to have your family as our guest at The Lake House. I was glad to see that your kids loved being able to walk across the street to go fishing and swimming. Also, thank you for sending me the photo of the the "huge" fish they caught. We look forward to your return this winter.

Sincerely,

Michele

Our lovely lakeside cottage is in the perfect Big Bear Lake location, directly across the street from the lake but within walking distance to the Big Bear Marina and the Village shopping area. Bring your water toys and boats as a boat dock can be rented at the local marina for a minimal fee.

In the winter our home is so cozy you may not want to leave the house. However, if you choose to venture outside the local ski lifts are just a couple minutes away. Snow Summit and Bear Mountain Ski Resorts are Southern Californians favorite local ski areas. Also, purchase a ticket to one resort and you can ski at both!
