About Nancy

Our family is not photogenic. Everyone in our family has contributed something to the Boulder Bay Chalet to make it comfortable, cozy and relazing. The cleaning staff works hard to keep the Chalet clean and in the proper order so you can find everything you need. They must be doing something right because they get sizable tips frequently. We look at the Boulder Bay Chalet as a service for those in need of a vacation. If you can't find something to do there, you are not looking.

Nancy purchased this house in 2007

Why Nancy chose Big Bear Lake

This warm and wonderful spot on the lake makes you relax even if you want to work.

Healthy people are happy people.

Relaxation is an essential part of good health

What makes this house unique

We have stocked this home with everything we can think of to make your stay comfy, cozy and easy. Every kitchen toy we could buy, kitchen settings in paper, beautiful Corelle, China and Crystal for those weddings and anniversaries. The beds are comfortable. The rooms are clean and neat. The fireplace even has a remote control so you can control the temperature of the house from any room. Even bed wetters can relax with the 6 bedwetter pads on site. Pets are welcome but we ask that you clean up their dropping and bring 3 extra towels per animal to dry them after they romp in the water and snow. We know you will enjoy your stay at the Boulder Bay Chalet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nancy & April - Thanks for the 2 days at the Chalet. We all had a great time. It's always nice to be able to get away for a couple of days for family time. Everyone thought the Chalet was great. Nicely decorated and all the comforts of home and then some. Thanks again and have a Happy New Year.

Neat Blue House with awesome views

  • 5 of 5

I visited Big Bear for the weekend in September and stayed for 2 days with 14 of my friends, 2 dogs and a baby.

Everyone was comfortable and the house has everything you could possibly need! Chris was super awesome and he didn't mind that we got there a little early and left a little late. There is so much to do and not enough time! We definitely enjoyed going around the lake in the pantoon, easy to maneuver and no problems whatsoever. The Jacuzzi was nice too but only fits 2 people. Wish we had more time for kayaking, biking and canoeing (all equipment is provided for) but we didn't! Overall we had a great time!

Fantastic Family Time

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went for a 4 day get away with our daughter, son-in law and three children.n

We had an absolutely wonderful family time.

Nancy's house is so charming and comfortable. All the bedrooms were equipped with pillows, blankets, extras and the bathrooms had everything one would need. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and the garage had water toys, bikes, fishing supplies and so much more.

We had entertainment with games, puzzles and bedrooms with a TV in every room including the living room with a warm cozy fireplace.

Thank you ,

Roger and Betty Rule

House is nice but boat, toys, and dock leave a lot to be desired.

  • 2 of 5

Nice house. Master bedroom with jacuzzi on the deck and a nice master bath is a highlight. Kitchen worked very well for us. Sleeping quarters are as advertised. With the lake this low the dock is really disappointing. You can't fish or swim from it. Pontoon boat is at the marina. It broke down on us in the middle of the lake. Lack of maintenance. We had to get towed by lake patrol and the boat didn't get fixed during our trip. Owner offered us a one day boat rental but that didn't work for us. I wanted to use it to fish in the mornings. Kayaks and canoes are fine. Stand up paddle boards are ok but for 4 boards there is only one long paddle. With the lake this low there is little fun to be had so we would have been better off not paying more to be lakeside. The neighbor rents to hooligans. Came close to calling the cops but decided we didn't need the drama on our last night. Very disappointing considering the high rates.

Good times, but room for improvement

  • 3 of 5

We rented this house for all of the available amenities included. However, it turned out we were not able to use several of these; the paddle boat & jacuzzi were both broken & we were not able to use several of the bikes as the tires wouldn't inflate (tires need replacing). Needless to say, it was very disappointing to not be able to use these. After contacting the number provided, none of these were fixed during our stay, although we were offered a partial refund. As it turns out, management does not check to ensure everything is in proper working order between rentals; much room for improvement here.

The house itself could also use some updating; the carpets are clearly very old with many stains. The dishwasher leaks when in use, resulting in warped wood in the kitchen. The dock is also in need of repair; most of the paint is peeling & there were many times people tripped.

All that being said, the house is in a great location with wonderful views. It was very peaceful. All of the equipment we were able to enjoy (pontoon, canoe, paddle boards, kayaks) provided a lot of fun. It was great having so many bedrooms & bathrooms for a large group. Had we been able to use all of the equipment, I would've given 4 stars. If the house was a little more updated, I would've given 5 stars.

Great place, and it worked very well for our large group

  • 4 of 5

Great Place. the house worked well for our large group. The master bedroom is gorgeous.

We really enjoyed the stay and had a great vacation. Only negative thing is that the pontoon boat is barely functional.

Awesome time.

  • 4 of 5

4 stars becuz boat not working properly and we didn't get to do that sunset cruise we planned.

The house was great. Had everything it said it did except there was an issue with the pontoon boat. Although Chris got someone out there quickly to take a look at it, the problem not resolved enough to feel safe to enjoy it. The issue was that it didn't go fast enough to even feel safe on the lake. Propeller issues.

House slept all our guests. There were tons of board/card games avail. We had a horse shoe tourney out near the water and they had umbrella and chairs we used. Everything in kitchen worked. Beds were cozy. Bathroom doors don't lock :/ but we worked out a system. I had few of guests inquire about the house. Great location although the water is sadly low. Great area to take walk/run. Bikes had flat tires so didn't use those. Bbq worked great. I would recommend this house. We got there on tues and didn't leave until check out. No reason to go anywhere. All the other water toys worked and guests/myself had soooo much fun. We didn't use the hot tub at all. To busy playing games and spending time with family/friends.
