About Gregg and Nancy Kabacinski

We have owned our cottage on Big Bear Lake for 25 years. Our family has grown over the years, so we purchased the cottage next door for extra room for family reunions. We would be very pleased to host your family and friends in our lakefront guest cottage which has its own dock, beach, fire pit, and 150 feet of private lake frontage.

Gregg and Nancy Kabacinski purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Gregg and Nancy Kabacinski chose Lewiston

Big Bear Lake has a real 'up north' feel, surrounded by woods and quiet. Our 435 acre lake is crystal clear with great swimming, water skiing, boating and fishing. You will be amazed at the bald eagles and loons that frequent our lake. The loons often provide a serenade, along with the brilliance of the stars as you sit around a campfire on the beach. Oh, and don't get me going on the fishing (smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, walleye, muskie, northern pike and panfish - and I've got the pictures to prove it)!!

What makes this cottage unique

Our lakefront is the best, providing full sun on the beach and shade in the woods surrounding the cottage. Our location on the south side of the lake provides refreshing breezes and beautiful sunsets. We have 5 acres of private woods behind the cottage for children to explore. For our more adventurous guests there are thousands of acres of federal and state forests, and numerous rivers, within minutes of our cottage. The owner will provide maps and guidance upon request.

Wonderful cabin on a beautiful lake!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the cabin on Big Bear Lake! The cottage was very clean and well stocked with everything you could ever need. Gregg was very gracious and accommodating!!! The lake was wonderful; the bottom was nice and sandy, no muck! We rented a pontoon from Twin Lakes marina and had lots of fun out on the water. We will definitely be planning another stay here!!!

A Wonderful Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here last summer with two small children and had a splendid time! Greg was so helpful and accommodating. The kids loved the dock for fishing and the shallow clear water was great for young swimmers.

Perfect for Our Family Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage on Big Bear Lake was perfect for my family vacation that included our 5 year old and a 22 month old boys. The views from the house were beautiful, the bonfires were cozy and the water was chilly, just like a cabin the north is supposed to be! We even rented a pontoon boat from Twin Lakes Marina in Lewiston for a day which was wonderful. The house was fully stocked with everything you might need and Greg, the owner, was very reliable and helpful. He even brought over movies for the kids to watch when it was raining! We are hoping to make a repeat trip next summer!

I wish i could give this 0 stars

Worst vacation ever.

Grill only worked the first day, TV did not work, no privacy the blinds only cover half of the windows we had to use towels, water smells bad and the shower head is next to a power outlet. Left early because we found spiders in the bed. The boat motor was not available for rent.

Creepy neighbors.

We had a fantastic time! The location was perfect for relaxing and enjoying the great outdoors! Thank you, Gregg for your gracious hospitality! We experienced bonfires on the beach with an awesome view of the Northern Lights and the peaceful sound of the loon. We will definitely be back!!
