About Steve

We are a family of five that bought this home for a second home / vacation rental. We take pride in the house, keeping it fully stocked and tastefully decorated. We use it a fair amount, and enjoy providing a quality vacation experience for people when we are not using it.

Steve purchased this house in 2008

Why Steve chose Big Bear Lake

Big Bear is a four season resort located two hours from Los Angeles. We looked for a year before we found what we think is the perfect Big Bear house. It's in a tree filled area with immediate lake access and views of the lake and the mountains beyond. It has a large north facing deck so it stays shady and pleasant in the summer. The lake is about 100 yards away; easily accessible to a private cove. Boulder Bay Park is a 10 minute walk away, as is a market and cute restaurant. It's a very quiet area with no noise other than the breeze through the trees. It's surrounded by almost two acres of undeveloped land. While feeling very much like you are in the mountains and away from it all, you are only 4 mins from the village and 8 mins from Snow Summit.

What makes this house unique

Walk to private cove to fish, kayak, or have a day camp on the water. Rent a boat or a slip at a marina located 1/2 mile from the property. Walk to Boulder Bay Park or to the market or restaurant for breakfast. Enjoy the incredible quiet; no traffic or plane noise. Enjoy views of lake, trees and mountains from large deck, great room, master br or secluded hot tub. There's room to park you car and boat trailer on the property

Beautiful Cabin by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking forward to our weekend stay in Big Bear, and Steve's cabin made it much more beautiful than I could have imagined. The attention to detail throughout the cabin was my favorite part about the place. It was clean and well-maintained. The lake is within walking distance from the cabin (literally the backyard!) and The Village is a short ten minute ride from the place. Not only is the location convenient, it still manages to feel secluded from the popular attractions. Steve was incredibly kind and easy going. He will gladly answer any questions you may have, give you tips on places to go and see, and genuinely wants you to enjoy your time here in Big Bear. I would absolutely recommend his cabin to anyone looking for a wonderful vacation in the woods. Thanks, Steve!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time during our stay at Waterview Lodge. My son and nephews didn't want to leave the sled run they made in the back of the cabin. It was perfect. The cabin was so comfortable and everyone had plenty of space. Everything we needed was there for our stay. I couldn't have asked for a better experience for my sons birthday weekend. Steve, the owner, was fantastic and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time.

Incredible Forest feel with Lakeview!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four and friends had an fantastic time at the Waterview Lodge! Steve helped make the experience very easy, and was patient with us as it took awhile for our plans to come together. We had a great mix of activities (mountain biking, bowling, boating, and minature golf too!) There was plenty of time for relaxing in this beautiful home and the setting/location was perfect! There are plenty of trees and seclusion with relaxing views of the lake from the house. We were amazed at all of the special details and mountain decor, which makes it really feel like a vacation, a home away from home indeed! We have stayed in many places over the years here in Big Bear, and are so happy to have found the Waterview Lodge! The home had everything we needed, we barely went out to eat, plenty of room to gather and relax together ~ Very comfortable for sure! Thank you Steve for sharing your home with us! We look forward to many returns!

Easy to Recommend

  • 5 of 5

This house is sparklingly clean, top-to-bottom, is situated in a quiet and picturesque location and is a great bargain for the money. The large, open floor plan easily accommodated two families and could sleep ten easily. The lodge features a well-appointed kitchen, beautiful and comfortable furniture, excellent beds and a gorgeous deck overlooking the lake. The owner, Steve, was very friendly and helpful. It's hard to imagine there's a better deal in Big Bear.
