Welcome to Twin Bear Cottage, a one of a kind Sierra Style Cottage in the scenic Big Bear Mountains. This is the perfect location for any vacation, whether you are joined by family, a group of friends, or having a romantic getaway. As owner of Twin Bear Cottage, my goal is to exceed your expectations while making you feel at home in a quiet, relaxing, and serene place where you can enjoy the exciting year round activities that Big Bear has to offer. You will not be disappointed!

This wonderful cabin has a prime location in beautiful Big Bear City. It is a short drive (5-8 minutes) to both Big Bear Lake and Snow Summit Ski Resort, and just blocks from the main Highways. Close enough to experience all that Big Bear has to offer, yet far away enough to truly enjoy the peace and privacy of this secluded area, while escaping the hustle, bustle, and traffic of city life.

Twin Bear Cottage is easy to locate and access year round. During the winter snow season, the main street and surrounding streets are plowed daily for easy and safe vehicle traffic. The Cottage is built on flat land and the driveway is on level, paved asphalt, which will allow easy parking for any vehicle in any weather. The driveway is wide and long with enough space to park 3-4 vehicles, including any toys you choose to bring: RV, Boat, Jet Skis, etc. There is also additional street parking in front of the Cottage that will fit 1-2 more vehicles. Easy accessibility and ample parking space ensures that all guests can bring along family, friends, and toys with ease, and fully enjoy their stay at Twin Bear Cottage.

Twin Bear Cottage gives you a true cabin feel and enchanted experience with its Knotty Pine interior and Beamed Ceilings. The cabin also contains a Newer Heater and a Wood Burning Fireplace surrounded by Brick, which creates a comfortable atmosphere for relaxation at the end of the day.

The cozy living room provides seating for 7 and includes a 50-inch plasma flat screen television. We offer Free Cable, with many high definition channels. A blue ray DVD player with free instant access to Netflix is included. In addition, the cabin provides free high speed wireless internet.

The Master Bedroom includes a huge King Size bed that will comfortably sleep up to 3 people. The guest bedroom sleeps 4 people, and includes 2 twin size beds and 1 set of bunk beds.

I understand that many guests may not be accustomed to the frigid, yet wonderful, Big Bear Winter weather. As an additional courtesy, I have provided 5 electric heating blankets (one for each bed) and 2 space heaters to ensure that all guests stay warm and comfortable. The house also has a wall heating system that blows heat from both sides and is controlled by a digital wall thermostat. And, of course, a cabin would not be complete without a cozy wood-burning fireplace to curl up in front of.

Twin Bear Cottage can be enjoyed year round. The back yard includes a bench, chairs, and a picnic table, as well as a Charcoal BBQ Grill. At this scenic location, you will be able to enjoy the views of Gold Mountain from the fenced backyard.

Clean sheets and blankets are provided, along with bath towels, hand soap, and dish soap. The kitchen is stocked with new cookware and utensils, cups/glasses, dishes, a coffee maker, coffee, creamer and spices.

I am dedicated to making this place the ultimate Big Bear experience for my guests and would like for each and every one of you to feel at home, and want to return in the near future. In order to accomplish that, your feedback and reviews are essential! Any returning Guest that has written a review on VRBO about their previous stay at Twin Bear Cottage will receive $10 off of their next reservation. Also, any guests recommended by a previous guest that has written a review on VRBO will receive $10 off of their reservation.

RULES

NO PETS and NO SMOKING inside the Cabin. A Fully Refundable $200 security deposit is required at reservation to replace any missing or damaged items.  Cabin Inventory is done prior to guest arrival and after guest check out. I encourage you to enjoy your stay at Twin Bear Cottage, but please be respectful of my neighbors, some of whom are full time residents of this wonderful community, and do not disturb their peace and privacy.

About Jay Williams

My name is Jay, and I purchased this charming cabin in February 2013 as a place to come relax and escape the city and busy work life. I have an identical twin brother, and we have been inseparable throughout our lives; sharing a majority of both our childhood and adult memories together. This inspired me to call my new home 'Twin Bear Cottage.' As a child, my family and I took several trips a year to Big Bear and our fondest childhood memories were created in this area. Unfortunately, I am not Peter Pan, I eventually grew up and the responsibilities of adult life, including College (USC FIGHT ON!!) and Work, left little time for vacation. This nostalgic Cabin allows me to relive some of those wonderful childhood memories and create new ones with my friends and family. Big Bear is a beautiful place and has a lot to offer year round. I truly believe that you can come to Big Bear any month of the year and have the time of your life. Skiing, Snowboarding, Hiking, Fishing, Jet Skiing; I have created many memories in these mountains and I would like to open up my home to you so that you can create memories of your own that will last a lifetime.

Jay Williams purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jay Williams chose Big Bear City

After looking at many houses in the area, I chose this Cabin because of it's location, beauty, uniqueness, and character that the other places just didn't have. There was a special quality about this cabin. When I first saw the outside of the Cabin, I was impressed, and when I walked inside, I was amazed. I immediately knew this was the one. The rest as they say is history. I look forward to having many great times at this incredible Cabin and sharing them with my friends and family. I also look forward to sharing my Cabin with my guests. The thought that this special place will be engrained in the memories of many wonderful people for a lifetime brings me great joy.

Great escape

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had never been to big bear before, but we had so much fun and our cabin beat our expectations. Our cabin was clean, neat, and spacious, and had every amenity you could imagine;appliances, BBQ grill, and so much more. The neighborhood is quiet and close to restaurants and hiking trails! All of the neighbors were friendly, and the owner is a very nice guy. I can't wait for our next big bear trip!

Absolutely Excellent!!!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot recommend this cottage enough! We spent a weekend here with our 3 year old and everything provided made it a breeze. The owner was ALWAYS available to answer any questions, and was helpful in every way. When you arrive, the outside of the cottage is as perfect as the inside, the pictures here do not do it justice. As a parent, the fact that everything is so clean is also highly important. The heater quickly warms the inside, and the comfortable beds and couches make you want to stay forever. The cottage is a perfect distance from stores and from The Village. Best of all the cottage is very close to the lake, perfect for driving over for a walk or hike every morning, and very close to the Big Bear Discovery Center. This is honestly the perfect place to stay, winter or summer, and we will definitely be back!

Practically Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5
Three of us (wife, brother, and myself) stayed here for a week, and words cannot express how impressed we were with this cottage. Anything you needed, from kitchenware to extra towels to HDTV (w/ Netflix) to a house heater that warmed up the place in minutes and comfy beds -- all there and then some! Quiet street, about 8 minutes from ski slopes at Summit or Moonridge, 12 minutes from downtown Big Bear Lake, 6 minutes from the grocery stores (Vons and Stater Bros) -- it's all there! Owner (Jay) was in touch as soon as we made our reservation, and made it clear that he was contactable during our entire stay if we needed anything. Really couldn't have asked for anything better for our visit.

Quite majestic

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was beautiful and cozy. It is the epitome of what a Big Bear cabin should be, in my opinion. The bed was comfortable, it had all of the comforts and amenities of home, which made it really hard to leave, and I definitely plan on going back when the snow falls. It's also very close to town and about 5-10 minutes away from The Village. I loved it! For the adventurous type it's also close to a few beautiful hiking spots, and a lake where you can rent kayaks & canoes. It's the perfect getaway.

Fantastic Getaway Cabin

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was a in a great location near Big Bear Lake. It is in a nice neighborhood, near antique shops and grocery stores. The owner of the cabin was so nice and helpful. He was able to get us in last minute. The bbq was brand new. We had such a great relaxing weekend. The cabin has so much charm. And the TV was the biggest I've ever seen in a rental. I highly recommend this quaint cabin.
