Hi,

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.

The kind of place memories are made of (This place is HUGE!!)

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
The house (Big Bear Swiss Chalet) was a GINORMOUS house. We arrived on a Thursday, early evening (not a good idea to leave LA after 3 pm - leave before then to avoid the terrible traffic on the 91 and/or 10 freeways). The air was nice and clean, the house itself is located about 5 miles from Big Bear Lake. On hindisight, it may have been better to get a place closer to the Lake, but by being located further away, it also meant that we had more privacy (and could make all the noise we want).

The Chalet accomodated 20 persons easily. The rooms were standard size and the layout was really good. The upstairs living area was also huge, with a foosball table and TV. No cell signal (that's mountain living) but with the Wifi, it made up for it (highly suggest to have Skype or some kind of VOIP app). The owner was nice enough to provide a phone. The Living Room and Dining Room were enormous. What initiallly sold me on this vacation rental was That Big Table! We tried to fill it with food, but to no avail This was the catalyst for our get together, having meals together brought the family closer.

Some suggestions (and reasons for not giving 5 stars): Although the kitchen has a new countertop and appliances, the cabinets were in good shape but very outdated. The towels were clean but also on the 'older' side. The rooms were clean but on closer inspection, it wasnt as thorough as it should have been (since there is a cleaning fee, I would expect a thorough clean each time). It was not a deal breaker though. The trash bins were still full of trash when we got there but it seems that a dumpster is in service, so no problem. Some of the bulbs were out, if they had extra, i would have replaced it myself. And, the BBQ tanks were all empty when we got there, I filled the smaller tank in town, a little annoyance but again, not a deal breaker. (I suggest the BBQ be replaced soon, or at least get a good cleaning). Finally, no cable TV. It may have been a good thing, the kids were forced to be creative, to interact. But this would be a nice option to provide in the future.

All in all, minor stuff I can ignore, hence the 4 stars. This is the kind of place that memories are made of and we would love to stay here again. On a final note, we had thunderstorms come through and the rain poured and poured, and the thunder clapped and snarled. In the morning, the whole area smelled of fresh pine scent. Something to take back to the lowlands...

WOW! Amazing House!

  • Submitted: Mar 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2013
This house is huge! There is so much room, it was perfect for our group. We stayed in Big Bear last year at a house on the other side of town, and this house blows the other one out of the water.
We stayed here with 10 adults, 1 toddler, and some dogs. Both floors were so spacious we were never getting in each others way. There are so many spots to congregate and hang out (upstairs by the fireplace, in the living room by the fireplace, on the deck, sitting at the massive dining room table).
I could tell that a lot of thought was put into they layout of this house. The surround sound throughout the house is such a cool and unique feature.
The kitchen is great, we were able to cook large meals without any problems. There are pots and pans already there as well as enough flatware and plates for a big group. I loved that there was a dishwasher, it made cleaning up a breeze.
This house is close to town, but not too close. I liked the feeling of being out in the forest, but a close drive to the market and ski resorts (and lake if you are there in the summer). The price, compared to similar houses, is amazing. For the awesome amenities it truly can't be beat.
I definitely want to stay here again. I am already having thoughts of a summer trip...and possibly another winter trip.

Wonderful experience

This house was awesome! We needed something big since we were a large group and we ended up having an extra room. I loved that even if people were asleep upstairs they couldn't hear any of the noise from down stairs. Friday it was snowing on the drive up so the kids loved it and they got to play in the back yard with all the snow. The owner Al was very helpful and accommodating! Overall it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely stay there again!

GREAT MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
The "Swiss Chalet" was absolutely perfect for our family gathering for the Christmas holiday. We were a group of 22 people with ages ranging from age 9 to 72! Al,(the owner) took the time to hang lights outside and put up a Christmas tree. We were thrilled! Some skied at Summit which was close by while others cozied up to the fireplace to read a book. We visited the quaint downtown and enjoyed the holiday shops and festivities.The two large gathering spaces were even bigger than expected and the bar area was a fun bonus. I would highly recommend this home to friends and family. We were lucky that it snowed a few times and made it that much more magical. Thanks for the great memories!
