About Laura

My husband and I 3 years ago both quit our day jobs and moved to Big Bear to start our own vacation rental business. We love the freedom it gives us to spend time with our daughter, we love meeting new people, and frankly we both love the hospitality business. We own and manage many vacation rental homes, as well as a slew of commercial cabins. If you have questions, please ask! We are a very down to earth young couple working our dream job!

Laura purchased this house in 2012

Why Laura chose Big Bear

I love this place because it is close to all the attractions that makes Big Bear great, but is still in a quiet neighborhood and is a great and safe area for my daughter to play. It's big enough for all my friends and family to come visit, and not feel as though they are bumping into one another. This home with all it's unique interior features, comfortable beds, and cozy lounging areas, makes everyone instantly feel at home. I hope that you enjoy our home as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a peaceful escape with amenities for the whole family. We have games for the kids, an adult game room (pool table, air hockey, ping pong), large yard for flag football or snowman making, sauna, 6 HD tv's, and lots of relaxing lounge areas all over the property inside and out.

The beauty and craftsmanship with the log accents are second to none. Very warm and homey feel.

I love the large kitchen with the 5 burner convection oven. If you like to cook you'll love it too.

Sauna perfect for relaxation.

Amazing outdoor Gazebo with seating area

We are ready for kids/ infants! We provide: baby gate, umbrella stroller, portable crib, baby roller walker, baby blankets, children's books and toys.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reposted from Airbnb Review: Great cabin, warm, cozy, big inside space. Gracious hosts, helpful staff, a nice big bbq we cooked our steaks on out front. Had plates, utensils, and other kitchen needs for our big group. Cable tv, nice sauna, good dvd selection.

Great time

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the facility, there were 23 adults and 6 children, we all found comfortable places to sleep. Everything we needed was there.(except pepper-who didn't bring the pepper) Parking was a problem apparently i didn't read the fine print "parking for 6" we had 10 cars. So check street parking regulations because Grey Squirrel will tell you nothing (not allowed for liabilities sake) however they did offer to let the excess cars park at their office which was considerate but 20 minutes away. (we managed to park 10 cars, there with a few bumpers hanging over on the shoulder, not the street, i don't how strict the parking is without snow)

Due for some maintenance

  • 3 of 5

Some of the TVs didn't work so someone had to come out an fix them. After he left the TV in the game room stopped working again. The stove had to be lit by a lighter, the trash drawer in the kitchen constantly fell off of the tracks. The shower head in one of the bathroom sprayed everywhere. One of the futons in the game room was broken so you couldn't sit or sleep on it. It's a nice place but it definitely is in need of some upkeep. I informed the property management company if these issues so hopefully they have or will be taken care of.

Very nice. Perfect for large group.

  • 4 of 5

The place has lots of character and lends itself to accommodate multiple group activities. Close to town, yet plenty private.

Its a good property for a big crowd but quite run down

  • 3 of 5

No issues with Owner or Mgmt co.

Grt response time for all our needs.

But overall the property is old so lots of things were broken like fuss ball table etc.

V had a grp of almost 2 dozen kids and didnt have much to keep them occupied as air hockey and Table tennis was also a 2 in 1 table, and not seperate

Beautuful and comfortable. Very accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

Would highly reccomend staying at the Lily Bear Lodge. Everything we needed was there. The property was clean and spacious. They were very responsive when we had concerns. The hot tub didn't work and that was a bit of a disappointment, but overall it was an exceptional experience and I plan to be a returning guest.
