About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Due to our high level of success, we want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has stayed with us, making our cabin more affordable and comfortable. I am pleased to announce that our rates are lowered to now start at just $89/night! I am also pleased to announce several renovations that were just completed making the cabin more elegant and enjoyable for our guests. Please check our calendar for availability before inquiring. Our calendar is always up-to-date so if it shows available, it is still ready to book.

R&R Retreat is nestled in the beautiful woods of the Big Bear Mountains. Our cabin is located in breathtaking Big Bear City, just two blocks from the main highway, 5 minutes from the lake, and 7 minutes from Snow Summit Ski Resort, yet far enough away that it is extremely quiet and private. You'll truly feel like you are in the middle of nowhere and you'll never have to worry about issues driving to the cabin in the snow. During the winter season, our street and surrounding level streets are plowed daily. So pack your bags and make yourself at home!

We feel R&R Retreat is in the best location in Big Bear because it is less than 10 minutes to both the ski resorts and beautiful Big Bear Lake, yet it is away from regular weekend traffic. Whether you're coming up to enjoy the snow in the winter, or lake in the summer, R&R Retreat has everything needed to make your vacation a memorable one.

Our cabin was recently remodeled with top-of-the-line amenities. We take pride in our home and feel that we have done everything possible so our guests can focus on their wonderful vacation. When you stay at R&R Retreat, you will not feel like you're in a normal rental property because our home comes stocked with furnishings that are comforting, usable and luxurious. With each reservation, R&R Retreat offers a COMPLIMENTARY BOTTLE OF R&R'S FAVORITE WINE. Its a Cabernet from Chile and it has been a favorite of ours for the past 5 years.

Our cabin was completely remodeled just two years ago and features MULTIPLE CUSTOM UPGRADES. The home has 3 parking spots in the driveway and will fit a boat or RV. It has a large, newly re-finished deck with a gas grill to enjoy those beautiful nights under the stars. A new high-altitude state-of-the-art water heater is installed so guests will never run out of hot water! The home features new knotty pine interior walls and new CENTRAL FORCED HEAT. You will never have to worry about being cold, even during the coldest nights! New floors were installed at the beginning of 2012. All of the decor in the home has been hand selected and truly captures the 'cabin feel.' We also offer FREE HIGH SPEED WIRELESS INTERNET, FREE CABLE TELEVISION, and FREE NETFLIX.

Starting in the kitchen, we have all new stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Our beautiful kitchen bar has an integrated wine cooler and seating for four! The kitchen features a custom rock backsplash above the sink. I worked for a private chef for 5 years and really take pride in our kitchen and everything in it. It comes fully stocked with top of the line plates, drinking glasses, utensils, mixing bowls, cooking knives, cutting boards, complete pot/pan nonstick set, cookware, and a crock pot. I guarantee that you'll find everything you possibly need to cook an amazing meal. The kitchen is fully stocked with spices and condiments so you don't have to worry about these little things. Also included are beautiful wine glasses and a wine/bottle opener.

The cozy living room has a new insert fireplace. The living room has comfortable seating for six, including a leather chair to relax in while watching your favorite movie on a 42' Samsung flat screen television. Also provided is FREE CABLE, allowing you access to 120 of the most popular channels in America! A DVD/Blu Ray player is hooked up to the television which allows you FREE NETFLIX to instantly stream thousands of movies right to the television. The cabin has FREE WIRELESS INTERNET for guests. Our living room also has a CD player with an iPod jack.

The bathroom has a combination tub and shower, with a powerful new shower head, and plenty of mirrors.

Our master bedroom comes designed with a beautiful queen-size bed complete with a comfortable memory foam mattress, a fitted heating blanket to keep you VERY warm during the winter months, and a beautiful full-length wood framed mirror.

The guest room, is slightly larger than the master, has a new, very comfortable, memory foam full-size bed, plus a bunk bed with twin-size mattresses. The guest room sleeps 4 comfortably. The guest room is light and airy with a large window facing the street.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY SPECIAL: Any past guest who posted a review on VRBO about their stay will receive $15 off per night on their next stay. Also, if any new guests are recommended by a past guest who has written a review, they too will receive $15 off per night on their stay. We know how important it is to have customer loyalty and this is our way to say thank you! I hope each and every guest takes us up on this offer!

Absolutely NO PETS allowed and NO SMOKING inside the home. Our cabin is in a quiet residential neighborhood with lots of nice families and is not conducive to loud party-goers. A fully refundable $250 deposit is required for any missing or damaged items. A complete inventory of items has been taken prior to our guest's arrival and after they check out.

About Rio Ingram

Rhea and I love the outdoors and when we were living in Los Angeles, it was a dream of ours to own a cabin in Big Bear. We wanted a place to 'get away' from the rat race of Los Angeles and felt Big Bear, and this cabin specifically, was the perfect place to do just that. We are both very fun, relaxed people with an active lifestyle. We love to spend our time with friends and family. Unfortunately, we no longer live in Los Angeles and cannot enjoy those quick weekend trips up the mountains. I hope all of you can benefit from this and get to experience why this cabin has such a special place in our hearts. Cheers!

Rio Ingram purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Rio Ingram chose Big Bear

Because Rhea was from the beautiful Northwest (Seattle), she was missing the After looking at about 50 homes during our home search, we were blown away when we walked into this beautiful and cozy cabin. This cabin checked all our boxes and felt it had the perfect amount of charm and was centrally located to everything Big Bear has to offer.

Excellent retreat.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and quite. The property seemed to be a lot bigger in the picture than what it is. Inside it’s not really that big but just right to my family of four. The bedrooms are cozy and lovely while the kitchen is cute and stuffed of everything you need. The heater worked great keeping us warm and comfy inside. Stores and ski resorts are minutes away and driving around is not complicated. The kids enrolled in the adventure academy and enjoyed this rare opportunity at the resort. It could have been a perfect holiday for the kids except for the absence of the fresh snow falling from the sky.
