Overview

Big Bear Lake Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Spacious Living Areas Upstairs * 3 Bedrooms Down * 2 Queensize and 3 Single Beds

Located Just steps - about 100 yards-- to Snow Summit lifts and All-Terrain Biking ... Chairlifts designed for mountain bikers, bicycles, and sightseers.

* This is a 'Drive-Up' unit (a wonderful convenience not often considered) with ample parking at the unit.

* Just place your skis, boots, and ski wear in the ski locker just inside the entry, ... and 'Come on in'!

* We have INTERNET SERVICE....

* Because we were looking for the 'Ski Chalet' feeling, we chose a tri-level unit (#129 - see complex map) with a Brick Fireplace and Hearth, and High, Vaulted 'A-Frame' Ceilings! We have since added New Flooring; 2 Flat-Screen TV's and DVD Players in the Upstairs Living Areas; Flat-Screen TVs (with DVD players) in each of the bedrooms; and a New Granite Kitchen (with Breakfast bar) ... and the following: a crock pot, and a Keurig Coffee/Tea/Hot Chocolate Brewer (Don't forget to bring your favorite brew!).

*The Upstairs Living area also features an expandable Dining Table; 2 Separate Living/Lounging areas a wonderful outdoor Balcony/Patio; and an array of family table games and videos to make this the 'Best' Ski/Mountain Vacation Experience yet!

All 3 Bedrooms, including Master Suite, are located Downstairs, and each contains a flat-screen TV with built-in DVD players, and sleeping accommodations for Seven (queen beds in two of the rooms and 3 Twins in the 3rd Bedroom).

Activities: Skiing at Snow Summit or Bear Mountain; Mountain Biking on the Summit; Hiking; all Water Sports at Big Bear Lake - including wakeboarding, water skiing, and a water park; Bowling; Movie Theatres; a Wonderful Zoo; Golf; Wonderful Restaurants; and so much more...

Note: There is a two-night minimum stay for weekends, due to a high volume of inquiries. We appreciate your understanding!

Why Kim Chamberlain chose Big Bear

For many years growing up in Southern California our family made the 2-hour drive/trip up to Snow Summit, Big Bear Lake, and Big Bear Mountain from the Southern California flat lands. And now we were doing the same with our children. In 2004 we had the opportunity to puchase one of the only 'drive-up','ski-in' units at Snow Summit, Unit #129 at Escape Townhouses, and we have not looked back... For friends, family, and guests the convenience is truly appreciated.

What makes this chalet unique

Aside from our enjoyment of the Snow Summit Skiing experience, our kids have spent hours building snow forts and having snowball fights. In the Summer chasing squirrels takes priority for the kids; while mom and dad enjoy the fireplace, or relaxing after a day on the lake; or cooking and reading on the balcony, or just relaxing watching a ball game or video on any one of the 4 TVS.

Perfect Location, Perfect Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay very much. The unit is very close to Snow Summit and the access couldn't be easier. Plenty of little hills nearby for sledding too! We would stay here again!

Great Experience--VERY convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO and I was very impressed with the ease of it all. Kim (the owner) was very helpful and responded quickly with a few questions that I had.

The townhome was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed (towels, dishes, games, books, gaming consoles, blankets, etc). There was even pack and play and a set of skis for the kiddos. TV's in every room and ample space for my group (10 adults, 2 infants, and 1 4yr old).

Location was awesome. We were practically in the same parking lot as Snow Summit so hitting the slopes could not have been more convenient--just a quick walk!

Thank you for making my husband's birthday weekend a great one!

Great location

The condo is in a great location for access to Snow Summit. Very spacious, clean and had everything you need for a comfortable stay. Perfect for a family get-together or several couples.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The townhome is steps away from the ticketing area at snow summit. Can't beat the location.

The unit has a nice layout on the top floor (kitchen, living and dining) and has a fully stocked kitchen as well as board games, DVDs and two televisions in the top level. The bottom level has the three bedrooms and feels a bit tight but adequate.

Kim (owner) was very responsive.

Loved the cabin! Everything is very well kept and comfortable. Exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is great. She answered fairly quickly and attended to any questions or concerns I had. She worked with me to ensure I had the best possible stay. The property is very comfortable and enjoyable. The location is great considering how close it is to the mountain.
