About Ski House Rentals

I am the owner of Tao Cabins. I am a snowboarder and musician on the weekend. All of the cabins I manage are nestled in a very small village, so it's private, quiet and tranquil. It is perfect for a family or a group spiritual retreat. I am also a Taoism practitioner. Taoism promotes inner peace and harmony with the nature. Staying healthy and happy are my spiritual practice.

This cabin is managed by Ski House Rentals. You may search other ski houses and discounted lift tickets at: SkiHouseRentals.com

Ski House Rentals purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Ski House Rentals chose Running Springs - Snow Valley

Running Springs is a very small village between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake. It is located 2 miles from Snow Valley ski resorts and 11 miles from Big Bear Lake ski resorts. Unlike other cabins in Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake city, you will not see many people in Running Springs, and it is only 60 miles from LA and San Diego. It is my home in the nature when I need a break from city life.

What makes this cabin unique

Due to my cabins' unique location, you may ski in the morning at Big Bear Lake, and enjoy the high quality evening life in Lake Arrowhead on the same day. Beside the peace and comfort during your stay, when you are ready to go back to the city, you will be ahead of all the traffic from Big Bear Lake. All the major cities in the Redland are only 20 minutes drive from Tao Cabin.

Great Cabin, Great Price for a big group

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean and in good shape.

As for the layout, the cabin has three stories. The lower floor has a bedroom with two beds, bathroom, and washing/drying machines. The main middle floor has the kitchen, main room, three bedrooms, and full bathroom. One of the bedrooms has bunk beds. The floor has an open format, with the kitchen flowing into the main room. The stairs to the upper and lower level are right there. The upper level has a half bathroom and a bunch of floor space for sleeping.

Outside the cabin there is space to walk on the rocks in the yard. You should definitely check it out.

The owner Sean provided great customer service.

Our group enjoyed staying at Tao Cabin! At the low price it was a great place :)

Found hidden hiking!

  • 4 of 5

Management team was acting as a great host, welcoming, inviting, and hospitable, despite recovering from surgery. Wanted to make sure we got the full Mountain experience. Called to make sure we were catching the beautiful sunset on the first night. The house is super comfortable and easy to find. A VERY short drive to Lake Arrowhead Village. Whole heartedly recommend the spot and hosts.

It is pretty close to Snow Valley Ski resort

  • 4 of 5

We have visited in the winter time almost a year ago, owner emailed us to write a review now, we actually don't remember too much. But we do remember we selected this place because it is only 2 miles to ski resort, and oh, forget to mention, it is pretty clean inside the house.... Likely we will return if we find a discounted rate this winter.
