Camp Neal is your home away from home. Our renters return over and over again, treating this cabin as their own. It was not originally set up as a rental, so it doesn't feel like one. It is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin built in 2006, with the original foundation and fireplace from 1926!! It has a modern feel with a rustic edge...and has all the comforts of home...ipod/iphone docks for music, flat screen with DirecTv PREMIUM and NFL ticket, Xbox with games, books and plenty of DVDs. Under the deck is a great outdoor hot tub. There are sleds with a hilly open lot next door! The cabin sleeps 6 with a queen bed in the master, a twin and a set of bunk beds in the second bedroom. The couch folds to a full size bed as well. The dishes, appliances and linens are all nice...much unlike other rentals. Make Camp Neal your home away from home near the slopes, the lake and the Big Bear Village!
We live in Riverside, CA and love the beach and the mountains. We have two kids under age ten, four dogs, three cats and lots of fish! We love skiing at Snow Summit and boating on the lake in summer. We had our cabin for a few years before we started renting to friends and family. We are now expanding to a new VRBO family!
Kelly Neal purchased this cabin in 2006
Growing up in Orange County we have been coming up to Big Bear Lake to ski and hike our whole lives. We just love it in every season. Most SoCalians think big bear lake in winter only, but we almost prefer it in spring, summer and fall!!! The lake is great in the off-winter months and every weekend in summer has some sort of party or festival going!
We loved that Camp Neal was new construction when we bought in 2006. Most of the other homes were very old. This one was brand new, with the exception of the fireplace which was from the original 1926 cabin. That fireplace gives it the ambiance that is just what everyone wants in a Big Bear cabin. It really is incredible. Plus, we love how we converted the under the deck area into a Zen Den where the hottub is. We have enclosed it with outdoor blinds for privacy.
This was my first time using a vacation rental in lieu of a hotel, to was nervous! But as soon as I first communicated with Kelly it put me at full ease. She answers questions within minutes. The house was so cozy, clean and has everything you need. The sledding hill next to the property is perfect, which was nice because the Alpine sled place was over packed & overpriced. She also has everything dog ready, so bringing our pugs was stress free! I was truly sad to leave, it was such a nice place to getaway to! I will definitely be back!
One of the friends that stayed with us said, "I liked the fireplace and The homeliness. It was clean inside and that was nice and easy access to everything made the the stay much more convenient." The cabin was very family oriented and so clean! We didn't get a chance to use the Jacuzzi because Big Bear is much colder than where I am from but we did check it out and that was very clean as well. We got a little lost trying to walk to the lake so that should have been planned out better on our part I'm still not sure of a good spot to walk to from the cabin we ended up driving to the other side. The location was so close to the village it was perfect we were in the center of everything we needed. Kelly was super nice and helpful when I had questions about booking! I would definitely look up Camp Neal again. My one year old had a blast and I loved the deck we could open the door and he could go outside without us having to worry about him running in the street. I also liked the fact that there was everything in the house we needed to cook with and how comfortable all the furniture was. We had a great relaxing time and it was like a home away from home. The Internet access and television service also came in handy at night. The fireplace was a great asset and the heat output on the side kept everything nice and warm. Heater worked great for the bedrooms too. I also liked how big the bathtub was surprisingly it was nice when I took baths with my baby.
My wife and I (and dog) stayed at Camp Neal at the end of October and it was amazing. We had a great time in and out of the cabin. The booking and checkout process was very simple and the cabin itself was very clean. I highly recommend Camp Neal to anyone. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your home!
What a great trip, love the Big Bear area. The house was perfect for our needs. The Neal's were wonderful to deal with. We will be back!
Fire place is amazing, kitchen was fully supplied with all the dishes and appliances needed to cook & clean! Plenty of extra blankets and pillows, perfect for a cozy, quiet getaway!
Our experience at the cabin was just amazing. It surpassed our expectations. We had everything we needed and then some. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to have a getaway but still feel like home to visit the cabin.
Our Charming Camp Neal is a 5 minute walk to the lake shore and a 3 minute drive to the Village in Big Bear Lake. We are about 5 minutes to Snow Summit Ski/Snowboard resort and a few minutes farther to Bear Mountain. Holloway's Marina on Metcalf bay (which has a playground and boat/jetski rental) is a short 2 minute drive or 5 minute walk from the cabin.
