'We are a family of four with two dogs. We were visiting Big Bear to enjoy some snow play with our young children when it struck us how much we'd like to have a place that we could come to year round and where we'd know our family would always be comfortable. The best solution for us was to get a vacation rental cabin that we could share with others. This made our dream of having a convenient and cozy cabin for fun and relaxing with our family, friends, and pooches affordable. We'd love to share more of our experiences at and around the cabin with you.
The first is simple, as they say...LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Walking Pines is very well located to be central to lots of fun activities. With a walk out the front door, you are looking at the National Forest. With a walk across the street, you can head out on a hike or a mountain bike ride on one of several trails that begin or end at the Aspen Glen Picnic Area. Many mountain bikers end their rides here after taking the lifts up the mountain at Snow Summit ski resort. At the Aspen Glen Picnic Area, you will also find a hill perfect for some free snow play - sledding, tubing, or the like. While these are the amenities right in Walking Pines' front yard, there are other fun and scenic activities a short drive or walk away. Less than 1/2 mile away is Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain where you can enjoy a bobsled type ride year round, water slide in the warmer months, and snow play during snow season. Less than 3/4 mile down the hill you will reach Big Bear Lake where you can enjoy a scenic walk or many different water activities. And just 3/4 mile down the Boulevard, you will reach the Village where you can find lots of shops and restaurants. Lastly, just two miles away, you will find the closest ski resort. All of these activities nearby really make this a great vacation spot year round!
The next reason we chose Walking Pines to be our vacation home is its great ENTERTAINING AND GATHERING SPACE. The large and open great room is really perfect for the whole family or a group of friends to hang out together. Folks can eat, sit and talk or read, play a game of pool, and enjoy a movie all together in one space. There are several areas to sit, and the space can be used in whatever way works best for your party. And anytime it is desirable to break away or have a separate space for the kids to enjoy, there is also the game area loft. This semi-private space has a Foosball table for enjoyment of all and a cozy TV area for movie watching or game playing. The layout of the cabin offers the best of both worlds for gathering and relaxing.
The back yard is fenced which makes it a wonderful play area for young children as well as a secure area for pets.
We've added a brand new hot tub for extra relaxation and enjoyment.
Beyond these two main aspects of location and gathering space that Walking Pines offers, another aspect that is important to our family is having a secure place for our dogs and young children to enjoy. The deck, that wraps around two sides of the cabin, is enclosed with railing and each entrance has a gate to deter pets and toddlers from wandering. This allows us to spend time enjoying the scenery worry-free. The back yard, which still has nice views of the pine trees and aspens surrounding the property, is also fenced in for added privacy and security.
These added benefits really make this a peaceful and enjoyable vacation home for our family. We hope you and your friends and family will enjoy it too!
Conveniently close to many area activities and special events held throughout the year.
