About Simone


My name is Simone and I am the Property Manager. You can click on 'email manager' with any questions you may have on this property and I would be more than happy to assist you.

We purchased the Big Bear Swiss Chalet in 2012 and it had been already completely remodeled the entire cabin with all of the special amenities that we wanted in a second home. With just a short commute from the city, we love getting away to the serenity and fresh air of the mountains and local ski resorts. We absolutely love spending time at the Swiss Chalet and invite you to do the same.

Simone purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Simone chose Baldwin Lake

Short commute from the city, yet feels like you have escaped. The Big Bear Chalet is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a nice neighborhood. Level entry with attached 2 car garage and plenty of room for parking. The home is located on a large 1/4 acre fenced lot with a large 500 sq.ft. deck. Easy drive to the lake and the local ski resorts. This large home is a great getaway for large groups of family and friends.

What makes this chalet unique

State of the art audio visual system with flat screen TV's, surround sound for movies, iPod docking station with speakers throughout, Blue Ray DVD player, cable for movies on demand, pool table and free wireless internet access. The kitchen has ample cabinet and counter space. The gourmet kitchen has an island with a wrought iron pot rack, stainless steel appliances throughout including a brand new GE profile double oven and island cook top. The great room downstairs features a large L shape bar and custom 12 ft. dining room table that is great for entertaining. Upstairs has a huge game room. Outside we have a propane BBQ on the large 500 sq.ft. deck that is perfect for apres ski. This is not your typical cabin rental.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our family reunion held at the Swiss Chalet. It was a big success, in no small part due to the great facility. The place is very roomy with two enormous rooms, one up and one down, that easily accommodated all of our games and conversation groups. The setting is a little out of town so it was quiet, yet not so far that we couldn't run into town for pizza. The kitchen was great and meals were readily prepared. The bar made a good serving center. One of the best things though is Al, the owner. He goes out of his way to make sure that everything that can be done to make your stay a good one, is done. He prepped a bocce ball court for my daughter and got fishing information for my son. This place will be at the top of our list as we plan for next year.

Italian family Christmas...

  • 5 of 5

The Swiss Chalet was a really wonderful experience for our family. This is a once a year event that our extended family looks forward to and for so many reasons this location was perfect for us. We were surprised by how much extra space there was. The upstairs game area was so much fun for the kids. We were lucky enough to get snow and that was incredibly fun as well. The kitchen worked great for all the meals and snacks we prepared and the extra long dining room table was beautiful. To have all 17 of us at one table was special. The owners also went the extra mile and decorated for Christmas with lights and even a lovely tree! We are already talking about going again for next year's Christmas extravaganza!

Great place for big group!

  • 5 of 5

We have 8 families for a retreat and we had a great time. (we rented this Swiss Chalet and a vacation home next to it). This Swiss Chalet has plenty of room for meeting, eating and relaxing. Kids love the game room on the second floor. The big long table is a super for us. In addition, there is breakfast brench and table in the kitchen, that's perfect for kids eating there. The master bedroom is big with very nice bathroom. Although other rooms are not big but it is sufficient. No problem with the wifi. Our only complaint was the dogs at the neighbor house barked through the night. It was kind of annoying on the first night, but since we were all exhuasted on the second night, it didn't bother us too much. Alfred and Simone are very responsive and helpful when we have questions. I definitely recommend this place especially for big group.

(P.S. As mentioned, we rented 2 homes for this trip. Don't rent the home (Skyview from Big Bear Cool Cabin) which is right next to Swiss Chalet. It was dirty and we found a dead mouse in the tub!)

Very Disappointing!!

  • 1 of 5

Lets start with the cleaning. You guys charge so much as cleaning charges. But when we walked in the house, there were quite a few spider webs inside the house let alone the outside.

The Oven was dirty and not cleaned. So we could never use it.

It is mentioned that there is air conditioning but when i called the emergency number that was given to us on the welcome package. They said there is only heating and no air conditioned. It was so hot, almost unbearable/suffocating if the windows weren't kept open.

The carpets were so old that the nails under the carpet have come up. 2 of my cousins had stepped on them and had to be taken to the doctor for first aid. This really needs to be fixed. This is more of a request for future as we also had kids in the house and were scared to let them run/play around the house because of fear of the nails.

The water in the bathrooms in the lower level would never drain out immediately. While showering the water would start filling up and basically we were standing in a little over ankle high water level.

All in all i was disappointed and would never recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. We apologize that the chalet was not as thoroughly cleaned as it should be, and we have brought this to the cleaning services for extra special attention. We also apologize for the nails coming out of the rug and wished you would have reached out to us right away to inform us of the problem. We have a handyman nearby and would have called him right away to fix the issue or any other issues, preventing this from happening and a trip to the Doctor. We also have a work order to look into the water issue in the lower bathrooms as well. Re. the cleaning fee, it is a flat rate fee and consistent with most other rentals. On the upside, we do not charge a security deposit as most rentals do, which is a plus. We do strive to do our best to make our guests feel at home and have an enjoyable stay, and as you can see from all of our feedback, it speaks for itself and that most of our guests are quite happy with our chalet. Thank you for informing us. We are very sorry that you were disappointed in the condition of the cabin and we do hope you will give us a call should you ever decide to visit Big Bear and we will try our hardest to make better accommodations for you. Best Regards, Big Bear Swiss Chalet Family
