Overview

About the property

New, 3BR, 2 Bath, Sleeps 8, Families Welcome

Welcome to Leaf and Needle!

This home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a California king bed; the second bedroom has two bunk beds (one with a trundle); and the third bedroom has a queen bed. It easily accommodates our family of 4 and my brother's family of 4 as we enjoy spending quality time together in the mountains. The living room hide-a-bed allows guests to spread out. We provide clean towels and clean sheets on all the beds, with additional linens in closets if needed.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, dishes, pots, pans, mini crock-pot and more. We host Thanksgiving dinner here for our family, and find that the kitchen bar makes serving easy and convenient.

The living room opens up to the kitchen, letting the food preparer be a part of the group social scene. Entertainment in the living room includes a 33 inch TV with Bluray/DVD player that streams Netflix. As we usually come to the mountains for a bit of escape, we do not have TV service. If you just want to curl up on the couch, the wood burning stove offers a cozy atmosphere.

If the weather is nice outside, a large picnic table on the deck in the backyard provides a convenient place to eat. A charcoal BBQ is on the deck for grilling summer fare.

Leaf and Needle is less than one mile from The Village and the lake. There are many restaurants and shops in The Village, as well as two movie theaters. Holloway's Marina at the lake offers fishing licenses and boat rentals. The trailhead to Pine Knot trail is a five minute walk from the house. Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain, with it's snow play /inner-tube slope, water slide, miniature golf and bobsled slide is less than a half a mile away.

Please call if you have more detailed questions about what is available at Leaf and Needle. We hope you will come stay and make wonderful memories.

About Laura Wong

Our family of four enjoys discovering new places, sharing our favorites, and playing games. The bobsled at the Alpine Sled is a definite new favorite!

Laura Wong purchased this house in 2010

Why Laura Wong chose Big Bear

Big Bear Lake is a 2 hour drive from our home and is beautiful all year. In the fall the leaves turn red and gold, in winter the snow brings snowball fights, sledding, skiing, and snowboarding. In the spring, the tulips and daffodils bloom and the trees begin to wake up. Summer completes the year as we hike, swim and continue to enjoy nature. With the convenience of restaurants, shopping, and movie theaters, Big Bear is an ideal vacation get away that isn't too far away.

What makes this house unique

We love to sit on the porch swing on our front deck and listen to the birds and the wind in the trees. When it is cold, there is nothing like cuddling up in front of the wood burning stove sipping hot chocolate.

The pictures dont do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in we felt at home. The pictures don't do it justice for sure. It had everything we needed and were able to walk to village (about a mike walk one way). The owner was very helpful and got back to me right away with any questions I had. We will definitely be back!

Leaf and Needle

  • 5 of 5

We loved Leaf and Needle! This home is cozy and comfortable for families and couples. The furnishings are very accommodating for all with a kitchen stocked for all your needs. The home is located in a quiet neighborhood located close to the forest preserve. Big Bear Lake and recreation area is a close drive. We loved it and will definitely consider Leaf and Needle for our next trip to Big Bear Lake. Thank you for your generous hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

We spend new years with my familiy and had a wonderful stay. The cabin surprised us it is so much better in person than in the pictures. The Cabin is at walking distance from a great sleeding area. We enjoy our stay and look forward to staying in this cabin again.

Our 3rd wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd annual winter stay at this rental and this cabin now feels like home. It's perfect for our family of 8 (including 4 kids ages 4-12). We look forward to it every year. It's in a quiet residential area. The driveway was shoveled and cleared for us each morning, which was a nice treat. This year we discovered it's just a short walk to a wonderful huge park (Aspen Glen Picnic Area) that was perfect for sledding. It was like a private winter wonderland! We spent hours there and loved that we didn't have to fight for parking. The kids loved playing in the snow in the front and back yard just as much too. We'll be back next year!
