The Enchanted Bear Cottage is the perfect place for people and families who are yearning for a memorable and relaxing vacation. The nature that surrounds this cottage will reawaken your senses as you find yourself slowing down to the sights and sounds it has to offer. You will be delighted at every turn as you discover how very special this cottage is.

Regardless of the season, the views from the Kitchen, Breakfast Room and the Deck are just breathtaking. While gazing through the kitchen garden window, it can be an especially entertaining and a joyful experience when you catch a view of the many types of birds that come to the Enchanted Bear Cottage for breakfast. The cottage is gated by a charming white picket fence and the grounds have been landscaped for your enjoyment.

This delightful and well maintained 3 bedroom/ 2 bath cottage has been decorated with many beautiful upgrades to make your stay a comfortable one. This includes mud room, living room, kitchen, breakfast room and 3 bedrooms. One bedroom/1 bath is located downstairs and the other 2 bedrooms/1 bath is located upstairs. All 3 bedrooms have queen size beds.

The mud room is a great place for you to take off your boots and hang your coats to dry after a fun filled day in the snow. Then you can start a cozy fire in the beautifully upgraded wood burning stove. The nice sized kitchen has everything that you need to make a warm cooked meal or you can grill on the BBQ (not available in the winter) located on the deck. Depending upon the weather you may choose to eat in the breakfast room or eat out on the deck and enjoy the backyard. Either way, you have a view. At night, there is nothing like sitting out on the deck and gazing up at the stars.

This is a family owned cottage that is also used as a second home. You will be pleasantly surprised with all the comforts of our home that we have to offer. We strive to keep it well maintained and enjoyable for all of our guests.

Once you stay at the Enchanted Bear Cottage, you will understand why it's enchanted.

We are both native Californians who love escaping away to the mountains.

Jeff And Penni Blum purchased this cottage in 2011

We looked at many homes in Big Bear and this one one just hit us right in the heart. We fell in love with the coziness of the cottage and the beauty of the landscaping and the scenic views. Every time we come back we fall in love with it again. Very relaxing. We love experiencing the 4 seasons as they are all so different but each one is so special in it's own way. Big Bear is such a quaint little town and we are close to everything. There is so much to do. We have enjoyed Skiing, Zip Lining, Horse Back Riding, Biking, Hiking, Boating, Bowling, shops, dining, movies, seasonal festivals, etc... Being able to rent a boat on the 4th of July, take it out on the lake and watch the fireworks emblaze the sky was definitely a big highlight for us! As was watching the candlelight procession of hundreds of skiers go down the slopes of Snow Summit on New Years Eve!

There are so many things we love about this cottage but most importantly what we wanted and it had to offer was a level walk from the driveway to the house as we know that stairs can be difficult during winter months. The level driveway is able to accommodate 2 cars with an additional space for another car or boat behind the picket fence. We really loved the curb appeal that the front had to offer with the slated walkway, picket fence and landscaping. The backyard was just as beautifully landscaped. We knew that it would take extra time and effort to keep it looking as beautiful when we purchased this cottage but we knew it would be well worth it. We have been thrilled with all the birds that have come to visit us. The mud room was also a big plus for us as well as the wood burning stove which is so beautiful during the cold winter months. From the bird watching from the kitchen, the view from the breakfast room, the cozy bedrooms, the spacious kitchen we know that you will enjoy this cottage as much as we do!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME! ATTENTION TO DETAIL!

  • 5 of 5
We felt so comfortable the minute we walked through the door. The cottage is so cozy with all the amenities you would expect & want from a mountain vacation home...wonderful layout, great decor, fireplace/movies/games/etc, & we loved how the kitchen overlooked the family room so we could always be together while prepping meals. Adorable dining area overlooking the backyard. The home is well-maintained, clean, & the beds/bedding are very comfortable! The cottage is located in a great neighborhood where we enjoyed family walks daily. We would definitely recommend staying here. Look forward to our next stay!

THANKSGIVING 2013

  • 5 of 5
A cozy get away. We shared Thanksgiving with our children and their spouses. Great video collection. Wonderful fireplace stocked with wood and fire starting logs. Comfortable beds. Large kitchen and breakfast room perfect for six. In warmer weather the back patio and porch with BBQ would be very inviting.

EBC REVIEW

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is very well maintained and furnished. Its clean, comfortable, cozy, easy to find, and located near the ski resorts. Its perfect for groups up to six. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals. The owners do an excellent job of making sure you will be comfortable. We have rented dozens of cabins over the years. This owner is the most attentive we have ever experienced. She maintained communication through email and texts from before our stay until afterwards and without being intrusive, including a good morning text on our arrival day and follow up emails about return of our security deposit. I highly recommend this cabin.

WINTER WONDERLAND!

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazing cottage! My family and I vacationed here during our winter break and it was everything that the owner's described it to be, and more. An adorable home, it had a cozy feel to it and was clean and in perfect condition. The owners take care to put special touches on everything that is in the cottage.
It was very close to restaurants and a very easy drive to the village. The backyard is fenced in, which I loved because we were with my three children. It was snowy and gorgeous and it surpassed all my expectations.
Another plus were my dealings with the owners. Amazing people! I can't wait to have another opportunity to stay here.

To Penni and Jeff:
Thank you for sharing your beautiful and cozy winter wonderland cottage with us! Our family made lifetime memories here. We hope to be back soon : )

COZY, CHARMING AND ENCHANTING HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying at this gorgeous cottage located in a very nice part of town. It is absolutely beautiful inside with charming decor that captures the spirit of Big Bear. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the spacious deck overlooking the beautiful back yard, bird watching and enjoying the fresh air. Whether cozying up in the living room next to the fire, cooking a family meal in the spacious kitchen, or soaking up the morning sun in the adorable breakfast nook, this cottage will make your stay in Big Bear comforable and memorable. Even if you spend most of your time hitting the slopes, you can be assured the time spent here will leave you enchanted and anticipating your next visit!
