About Jon Varsano

Lauren and Jon Varsano, 2009

Jon Varsano purchased this house in 1998

Why Jon Varsano chose Big Bear

We bought our house so that we could get out of the hustle bustle in Los Angeles to be close with nature. Since buying the place we have a couple of kids who enjoy coming up to the house. We wanted a place up in the mountains for skiing, hiking, and relaxation.

What makes this house unique


The Varsano Villa is located only 1 mile from the lake and 3 short miles from Bear Mountain Ski Resort.

Click on the LOCATION MAP for details of the rental home's proximity to points of interest in the Big Bear Lake area.

The Big Bear Lake area in the San Bernardino Mountains is a year round resort. A convenient mountain retreat with fresh air, a beautiful alpine landscape, and a relaxing natural atmosphere, it is the perfect weekend getaway from the bustling urban life.

Soak in the Varsano Villa's outdoor jacuzzi spa or swing on the hammock amongst the tall pines and giant sequoia's and feel your stress melt away.

For the active outdoors person, the Big Bear Resort area features skiing, snow boarding, sledding/inter tubing, and snow shoeing in the Winter. During the Spring, Summer, and Fall, enjoy hiking, cycling, boating, fishing, swimming, go-karting, alpine & water sliding, camping, shooting, and horseback riding.

The Big Bear Village and Big Bear Boulevard offer a plethora of shopping and dining experiences. Whether you like to search for antiques or bring your family to the Moonridge Zoo, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone happy.

Very nice. Our family enjoyed our stay there.

Friendly owner, easy communication. Dog-friendly home. We just wish there was a separate heater upstairs.... But the blankets kept us warm. :)

A good experience overall. Planning to rent again :)

Owner's Response: Nina - I'm glad you had a good time and hope to see you again. The downstairs heater is centrally located and designed to heat the whole house. Heat does rise which you will notice in the summer when the upstairs in much hotter than the downstairs. I find that if I leave the bedroom doors open, then the heat rises enough to make the temperature comfortable. There is also the electric bathroom heater that helps heat the upstairs. If all else fails, there are always extra blankets. Thanks again for being our guest. Jon

Perfect Big Bear Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I looked at many locations and we chose this house because it had the cabin look and atmosphere vs. a regular home. Very cozy and well maintained. Would definitely consider again.

Excellent week!

  • 5 of 5

This couldn't have been easier! The property was displayed honestly on the website and getting the info for everything we needed to know was super easy. The cabin really did have the feeling of a cabin in the snow just like we wanted. There were plenty of beds and a place to eat and cook. We really got good use out of the fireplace as well. The location was easy to find and close to downtown and the ski resorts. If you're looking for a great cabin at Big Bear, check this one out!

Decent for the price

  • 3 of 5

The place is a good deal fro the price, but there were some quirks on the interior. Maintenance was responsive when there was a problem. The spa made things really relaxing, especially when it snowed. It is off the main roads a bit, so we had to wait for the snow plows to clear the roads so we could get out.

Owner's Response: I'm not quite sure what you are saying regarding quirks with the interior but I'm glad that your concerns were addressed in a timely manner. As the property owner, I make myself available for any guests' concerns and my local maintenance company is onsite to solve problems even on holidays. I'm glad you able to enjoy the New Year at my house.
