About Jim Ostrich (owner)

Live in San Diego, always loved coming to visit Big Bear, found this house in Eagle Point (yes there are bald eagles living her) right across the street from the lake, with lake access. Thought this was a cool home for family / friend vacations and am offering it for rent when we are not there!

Jim Ostrich (owner) purchased this house in 2012

Why Jim Ostrich (owner) chose Big Bear

Nearness to the lake, with public lake access for kayak or canoe launching / fishing. Walking distance to Snow Summitt overflow / shuttle parking lot, the Village for shopping or eating, as well as nearby Meadow Park (4th of July Fireworks) swimming and playing with kids. Ideal location!

What makes this house unique

I like the Garden RR train setup myself, but its not available to the renters do the fragile / high price nature of the trains!

Perfect set up!

  • 4 of 5

We had 5 couples and this place worked out perfect. It is definitely a little out dated but it has that older cabin feel that you expect when going to the snow. It had everything that you would want and it all worked great. Beds could be updated but mine was comfy enough. It would have been nice if a snow removal company cleared the driveway and parking area prior to arrival so I didn't have to spend 2 hours on it. But all in all, Great location and neighborhood. Thought $250 was a little much for early check in. At 4pm the day is already gone. Don't know if that's a VBRO or owner policy. But that's my 2 cents. I would stay here again in the future. Thank you Jim.

Second stay as great as the first!

  • 5 of 5

We liked this cabin so much we came back for a second time. We have 9 adults, 2 teens, and 2 preteens and this cabin accommodates all of us very nicely. The kids have the lower level to themselves to watch TV, play video games or pool etc. The upper level hosts a large kitchen with plenty of room for food prep and is well stocked. The long dining table fits all of us and we loved that. As many have stated, the cabin has a retro vibe and reminds me of when I was a kid. It is well maintained and the owner is very responsive to any of your needs. Overall, it is warm and cozy and central to all of the Big Bear amenities. Hoping we can come back again.

Awesome experience!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was really clean and I have so much fun with my family there. There was enough space for everyone and a lot of activities to keep us entretain. It was snowing so that make the place look really beautiful. Would definitely stay again.

Thank You-Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jim, many thanks for a great weekend, the jacuzzi was the highlight!!

Here are a few things you should know about:

1. Downstairs bath-

a. Right sink faucet leaking

b. Shower handle plate not attached

2. Downstairs Playroom

a. 1 bedroom lamp not working

3. Upstairs bathroom

a. right sink faucet leaks

4. Many light bulbs out, we replaced a few of them, outside security light needs a special bulb.

We purchased new coffee cups, light bulbs, and trash bags, and left them for future guests.

These little things did not effect our vacation, just thought you would want to know about them.

We hope to be able to rent from you again in the future, you have a beautiful home.

All The Best,

Ross & Audrey deRoche

Wonderful location for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a family vacation with 5 different families. The location was great for everyone to be able to get around and do what they wanted. The house was spacious enough that we were not all on top of each other and the large dinning table allowed us to all sit down together.

The only minor issues we ran into were:

-The lack of kitchen utensils and pots & pans. There were only two pans large enough for us to cook for the whole family and they were both electric, one had clearly been on fire at some point so we made due with just the one. There was not a whisk so instead we used the single beater from a hand mixer (never found the actual hand mixer).

-The window coverings in the kitchen didn't work and some of the bedrooms curtains were see through; not optimal for changing in those rooms.

The bad however was nothing compared to the good and we would gladly return here on a future trip.
