We have been visiting Big Bear each year for a number of years and fell in love with the area. Our children and grandchildren have joined us there for wonderful vacations. Big Bear offers everything from skiing to boating to live theater to walks in the village to get an ice cream.
Mary & Gary Terkelsen purchased this house in 2011
When we saw Big Bear Castle for the first time we were drawn to it's old world charm and the incredible attention to detail in craftsmanship. It had an abundance of custom features. While large enough to accomodate several families the home had a warmth that made us want to grab a hot chocolate and sit by the fire.
We love the fact that the castle has plenty of room for individual privacy while at the same time allowing for several families to gather in the large livingroom to enjoy the fire, watch TV, enjoy board games with the kids or play pool. The large outdoor patio and courtyard are great for large groups to enjoy a BarBQ or for family to simply sit in the solitude of the mountains or read under the pine treees.
Great location close to shops, restaurants, and slopes! Flat driveway so easily accessible. Spacious, clean, and large yard. Awesome kitchen and eating spaces. Affordable! We'd certainly recommend and plan on renting again!
My brother, sister and I chose Big Bear Castle to celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. When packing the car at the end of the week, my mother cried because it was so perfect. We were so close to skiing, four wheeling, shopping and other winter fun and had a wonderful time. The house is big enough that all ten of us were quite comfortable and had our own private space when we wanted it. The separate guest house was perfect four my family of four, and provided a perfect arrangement that avoided too much "togetherness!!"
The large main room was so perfect, with plenty of seating for watching TV or movies, unwrapping Christmas presents, and enjoying each other's company. We got a lot of use out of the pool table, and played games and cards, too. With so many tables to choose from, we found plenty of space for puzzles, kids projects, and of course eating and drinking.
The house is well maintained and beautiful. We appreciated the private feeling offered by the fencing and gated driveway. And we got plenty of use out of the hot tub, which was serviced while we were there (it was nice to know it's cleaned regularly!!)
If you're considering this property, don't hesitate. The owners are friendly and helpful, and offered us lots of tips on local attractions. Their property manager was easily accessible by text or cell phone, and everything went smoothly.
Two thumbs up. Thanks for a great week, Big Bear Castle.
The owners were very generous, we had such a lovely time in their spacious cabin. We absolutely loved the kitchen and the large dining areas which accommodated our two families. We will definitely be back!!
Stayed here for my Glamping bachelorette weekend and big bear castle was amazing to say the least! There was so much space and plenty of room to make all my friends have a comfortable stay! Everything was clean and taken very good care of. I will def be staying here again for family gatherings and girls trips! Thanks for having such and awesome house!
It was the perfect family get away. My children and grandchildren spent thanksgiving weekend at big bear castle. It was a healing weekend for all of us. I lost my husband suddenly a few months ago and we need time away and reflect all that has happened in our like and this house was perfect. The owner and property manager was so wonderful and helpful. Differently will be back
We had a great time at the Big Bear Castle... Beautiful place, kept very clean, lots of space and things to do. The owners and management were very helpful and responsive to anything we needed. I would definitely stay here again!
Big Bear Lake is the 'go to' destination for families due to it's close proximity to Los Angeles and 'four-season charm'.
In the winter Big Bear Lake is a skiiers and snowboarders paradise. With two ski resorts, Snow Summit and Bear Mountain Big Bear is the ideal mountain resort. The Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain and Big Bear Snow Play (the only inner tube parks in Southern California that have Magic Carpet uphill lifts that transport riders to the top of the mountain) provide hours of family fun for adults and children alike. When your day is finished stroll the village enjoying a cup of hot chocolate or enjoy an evening of live theater.
In the summer family and friends can enjoy all types of water sports in Big Bear including boating, the Miss Liberty tour boat, entertainment at the Performing Arts Center, fishing, para-sailing, jet-skiing, swimming and more. Be sure to enjoy a visit to the Big Bear Discovery Center and the Big Bear Historical Museum. End your day with shopping and dinner in the Village.
Don't overlook Spring & Fall in Beautiful Big Bear where you can enjoy moderate temperatures and a variety of mountain activities like horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, golf and more.
