While we live in Los Angeles with our two kids, we are both East Coasters who grew up with four seasons. Even though the weather in LA leaves so little to complain about, we regretted that our children had never enjoyed a single snow day. So we started looking for a cabin in the mountains several years ago!
We were looking for an escape from the city where our family could experience nature and all its seasons. We finally found everything we wanted, and more, at Pine Cone Alley!
We hope you will enjoy your stay at our cabin. It is our home-away-from-home, and has become our refuge from our hectic Los Angeles life. We're confident it will do the same for you!

We looked for a montain cabin for years. Ultimately, we realized that Big Bear just has so much more to offer than anywhere else.. as It truely is a year round community, with friendly people.
I drove up to see Pine Cone Alley the day it came on the market and the moment I walked through the front door I knew we had finally found the place for us. We were in escrow by mid-week.
I was a bit nervous, as my wife hadn't seen the place yet... but when she finally walked through the door into the great room, her face lit up, and I breathed a huge sigh of relief!
We recently added the 3/4 bathroom and the laundry room off the loft above. It was a great addition, as it enhances the functionality of the cabin but without sacrificing any of the original charm... or that fantastic loft for the kids!
We work with Dean and Stacy at Farrar Vacation Rentals because they have been full time residents in Big Bear for over 15 years... they love it up here. Besides running the vacation rental management business with Stacy, Dean also has a successful contractor business in Big Bear. In fact, we hired him to add the bathroom and laundry rooms upstairs, and he did such a great job for us on that, we didn't hesitate when it came time to choose a management company. We're happy they are there for us, with 'boots on the ground' , they are right up the street shoauld any of our guests need anything at all.
Wonderful curb appeal with original Big Bear cabin charm. Fantastic location, with a woodsy, private lot, yet walking distance to shops and restaurants. Cozy mountain comfort, with all the modern necessities.
