This house is a perfect Big Bear rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families in this great home for a four day weekend. The kitchen is well stocked and the home is incredibly comfortable. Lots of extra beds and towels. The hot tub was ready and heated for our arrival! The home had TVs in every room. The 4 kids loved the pool table downstairs! Very comfortable and we will rent again! Great proximity to the ski slopes grocery store and town! We loved every minute of it!

Best hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our trip had lots of obstacles to Big Bear due to Caltrans closing all the road because of snow storm. We eventually couldn't make it the night we planned for bit Scott and Karen went out of their way to help us. They always picked up their phone and tried everything to accommodate us. Although our plans didn't goniur way, Scott and Karen made us feel welcomed. Thank you!

we have rented a great number of houses up in Big Bear and this one is easily my favorite. It was very spacious (we had 6 adults and 4 kids including young twins) and plenty of room inside and outside the house. Everything we needed except for food was provided. The only bummer was that there was no snow....and certainly the property can't be held responsible for that!

Will definitely stay here again. I can wait in fact.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, the property was very welcoming and "homey". The entire home was well stocked with everything we needed! There was ample space for everyone! We celebrated my 30th birthday for one weekend and were able to enjoy the jacuzzi and snowfall. There is a small hill across the street from the home which we used for sledding. The house has sleds, many games, and direct tv in all rooms. Overall great home!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We picked the perfect weekend to stay, it was just after a storm so there was A LOT of fresh snow. Truly a winter wonderland... Once my family and I (A total of 12) arrived, we realized that there was no power! Right away we called Karen and Scott and they were more than helpful to call around for us to check what was going on. It ended up being, a few trees fell on the power line, which had knocked the power out. We knew we would be without power for awhile, so we unloaded the cars and started the fire places, with the fire starter Kit Karen and Scott left for us along with plenty of matches! Total life saver... The power ended up coming on about an hour later, the heater was a bit tricky however Scott and Karen came to our rescue AGAIN by sending out a friend to help us out. The rest of the trip continued without any issues. Hot Tub was awesome, pool table was great fun, & the kitchen is fully stocked as noted by previous renters. We all had a great time and we would stay here again. Thank you again Karen & Scott for everything!!

beautiful property but it may be haunted

  • 4 of 5

stayed the weekend after the new year, beautiful property with plenty of room for 12 people, amenities all included, kitchen was complete, basement was a fun area for a man cave. it snowed before we got there so we were lucky! 2nd night we saw bright flashes outside, we thought someone was playing a trick on us, but it happened 3 times and the flashes could be seen from the kitchen window and the back room (by several people), it was creepy. at night the tv downstairs in the man cave kept turning on and off, we thought maybe there was an automatic timer, but we were wondering why it would turn on and then off. the kicker....the morning we were leaving my 9 month old was sleeping in the master bedroom, we heard a loud crash, no one was in the room except my sleeping baby and the mirror of the closet door had shattered and fallen flat down in the room. we opened/closed that particular mirror twice during the weekend and it was running smoothly. it was crazy to see that it had shattered and fallen to the ground. luckily my son was still asleep. i still get goosebumps thinking about it. the owners were very nice and just ensured our safety. overall it was a wonderful stay, so many activities that we didn't leave the house, we just enjoyed each others company and fellowship. don't think we would stay here again, but only because of the paranormal activity. otherwise it was awesome. we also had dogs with us, and they were not near the closet mirror. but really a wonderful place to stay, roomy and comfortable.
