About the property

Log Home, 3 Bedrooms + Private Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6 adults/4 children)

This beautifully decorated home with its spectacular views is unlike any other in Big Bear Lake. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac on Inspiration Point at the far reaches of Boulder Bay, the views are breathtaking from every direction. Expect an 'over the top' experience when staying in this home. The unique living space offers a cozy and comfortable cabin feeling. The beautiful full round hand peeled logs, the hardwood floors, granite counter tops and comfortable furniture boasts a true mountain home experience. The outdoor patio with fireplace is where you will probably spend much of your time enjoying the view and relaxing as you listen to the mountain sounds next to a crackling fire. The lower patio is a perfect place to relax in an Adirondack chair with your feet up as you watch the 'Pirate Ship' or 'Big Bear Queen' tour boats go by -- have your camera ready! If you are a sun worshiper, you'll enjoy the 3rd patio lakeside, or better yet, go ahead and walk out onto the dock to be even closer to all of the lake action -- fishing, boating, boarding, tubing, kayaking and swimming. As evening approaches, have your camera ready again because you will see some of the most beautiful sunsets ever.

Visit The Village with all of its unique shops and quaint restaurants. Take advantage of countless hiking and biking trails and other attractions. Whatever you like, we are sure you will make wonderful memories at 'The Grand on Inspiration Point' in Big Bear Lake -- Southern California's only Four Season getaway.

Why The Owner chose Boulder Bay

We have visited Big Bear for years with our children, family and friends, both during the summer and winter, and fell in love with everything it has to offer. We built our log home on Inspiration Point in 1999 and are enjoying it now more than ever.

What makes this house unique

The best deep-water fishing spot on the lake might just be right off the dock at The Grand. During your getaway, you can enjoy the Spring budding or Fall foilage over the mountains that create a unique, picturesque view from any spot in the house or yard. Experience nature and the wildlife at its best including chipmunks, squirrels and an array of birds at play. You might evev witness a visit from one of the raccoon families that reside in the area. No lions and tigers and the only bears you'll see are carved ones.

The neighborhood is wonderful for your morning or evening walks, or to seek out the hidden trails that run along the lake and throughout the hills.

Spring and Fall are very delightful at The Grand. Did you know that May/June have no gloom up here with beautiful blue skies and most of the time September/October are two of our best months weather wise - usually very nice for lake activities.

In all, you'll find getting away from the 'city bustle' is a refreshing and uplifting treat that revives your inner soul and will surely have you coming back for more getaways year after year, season after season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved your beautiful home at Big Bear. It far exceeded our expectations. We had such a nice time and spent much of our time on the lake. The fishing was outstanding. We always hire the same fishing guide and we just catch and release. We let 18 large trout go right at your dock.

We would like to rent your lovely home again next year around the same time just before the 4th of July week but I think we will be wanting it for 3 nights.

Thank you for renting it to us. Your home created wonderful moments for us.

Our family of 9 which included our two daughters, husbands and three grandsons ages 5 through 14 had a wonderful 6 day stay at The Grand. Even with rain, thunder and lightning we were able to enjoy the beautiful lakefront location and views. The outdoor dining area and fireplace are amazing. Beautifully decorated and well equipped with all supplies needed as we celebrated three grandsons birthdays. Barb was cordial and prompt in reply to questions we had. We will definitely be back!

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days there with our two daughters (5 and 8) and in-laws and had a fantastic time. The house is absolutely gorgeous, meticulously cared for and extremely well-stocked. We were able to rent kayaks for 3 of the days and keep them at the dock, which was awesome for early-morning paddles. Barb was very responsive to questions before and during our stay. We loved sitting by the fire pit in the evenings and watching the lake and stars. We will definitely return to this house when we come back to Big Bear!

Fantastic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We sold our cabin in Big Bear last year but still love the area and spent Memorial Day Weekend at the Grand. We had a great time. The home is clean, well stocked, and clearly well taken care of. We loved the outdoor table area off the kitchen as it kept us out of the cool breeze and we warmed ourselves by the fireplace there.

Our adult children joined us and everyone loved the spa overlooking the lake. Simply beautiful. The house is a destination by itself and we spent the entire weekend there simply enjoying ourselves. We will definitely return. Thank you!

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply amazing with sweeping views throughout. It is neatly appointed with everything you could desire. Barb had told my wife that the kitchen was well stocked, but I trucked up with my knives and banker's box filled with spices. I could have left nearly all of them at home! The kids had an amazing time, it's like they had their own house. We really enjoyed the private dock and outdoor dining area. We will definitely be back. Thank you for sharing your home!!!
