About Matt Haggenmiller

We are a family that loves that outdoors, traveling and adventures. Since we just added one more baby to the mix, we decided that long flights would be out for awhile and quick trips up to Big Bear would be the way to go.

Matt Haggenmiller purchased this house in 2012

Why Matt Haggenmiller chose Big Bear Lake

After looking and looking for the perfect family vacation home in Big Bear, we finally found it! We chose this home because of its location in the Eagle Point neighborhood. It's close to the ski slopes which is a must for the winter - who wants to be stuck on Big Bear Blvd sitting in traffic? And it's close to the lake and park which is great for the summer. We deal with traffic enough in Los Angeles, so it's nice to be able to take back roads and ride bikes to our destinations. Getting to the grocery stores is also a snap!

What makes this house unique

We love that this house is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. It's just like how both of us grew up. The yard is almost a half-acre and wraps around the house. It's got a gentle slope so it's been great for the little kids to sled on in the winter.

Great place to relax with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

Like previous guests, we found it perfect for our 3 families (6 adults, 5 kids), and really pleased with the layout, facilities and equipment of the house. Hot tub a huge hit with all, and the house has a great layout, with lots of space for all to spread out and never feel too much on top of one another. Kitchen well equipped, great fridge and freezer, so lots of opportunity for convivial times! BTW sofa bed in games room apparently very comfortable too! We were there over Spring Break and went on a couple of beautiful hikes a short drive away from the house. Hosts are extremely friendly and extremely responsive. I'd recommend Hummingbear Lodge to anyone going to Big Bear; a great base for activities in that area.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

Our three families (including five young children) enjoyed a WONDERFUL weekend at Hummingbear Lodge. The owners were incredibly responsive throughout the entire process and take great care in ensuring your stay is pleasant. The house itself is perfect for multiple families, with all the comforts of home and located right in the heart of Big Bear. We lucked out with some snow and enjoyed hours of sledding in the side yard. It was a weekend we'll never forget, and we are so thankful we found Hummingbear!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review! We're so glad someone was able to enjoy the fresh snow...hate to see it go to waste. :) Looking forward to having you all back again in the future.

Spectacular weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying here and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. We had three families with 6 children, ages 8 to 13. There was plenty of room for everyone and we never felt crowded. The accommodations were outstanding and the large kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. Though it hadn't snowed in quite some time all the lifts were open at Snow Summit and it was less than a 5 minute drive. The owners were great to work with and were very responsive. We will definitely be returning. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Hi Dan! We're so glad you had a successful trip to Big Bear! The nice thing about it not snowing in awhile is that the lift lines seem to get a lot shorter. And Snow Summit keeps making so, so the conditions are usually still pretty decent. Hope you and your crew decide to come back again next year... or see what Big Bear has to offer in the summer! All the Best, Heather and Matt

Winter Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time with the kids and family members. It was our first trip with young kids to try skiing. We really wanted to be close to the slopes and help them feel at home in the mountains.

The cabin was very kid and family friendly. It had everything and anything we needed. We spread out very easily. It was a few minute drive to the slopes at Snow Summit, which made it easy to do drops off from the home. The owners were great at communicating and helping us along the way.

We will for sure book it again in the futre.

Thank you again for letting us use your house.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you could feel just at home at our cabin as we do. Just like us, we make the quick trip (less than 5 min) over to Snow Summit to drop off and pick skiers. So much easier to be dropped off at the ticket counter than to haul kids and gear from the parking lot or shuttle area. Yay to a successful first ski lessons! Keep in touch and hope to see you back soon! Heather and Matt

Fantastic Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The renters were super friendly and helpful in every aspect of our stay. We had 4 couples and more room than we needed. Everything was as described. Great proximity to just about everything you'd want to do in Big Bear. We even survived an earthquake! We'll definitely be coming back this winter for another long weekend. Thanks for everything!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place to celebrate my sister's bachelorette party, and this was PERFECT. From the beginning, Heather was so incredibly friendly, helpful and organized. I felt really comfortable working with them to plan such an important celebration. The house itself is lovely--so comfortable and perfectly sized (there were 9 of us, but we could have had more!) with all the amenities of home (and more! I don't have my own hot tub or espresso machine!). The patio outside was perfect for BBQing and hanging out. The location is great, too--you can walk to the lake, and getting into the Village was so easy. 100% recommend this for a family gathering or a get-away with friends! Thanks, Hummingbear, for a wonderful weekend!
