About the property

3 Bathrooms, 2 Bedrooms, (Sleeps 8) Walk to Bear Mountain & Forrest

Our darling family cabin is located just a short walk to Bear Mountain Ski Resort and a short 5 minute drive into the Village. We chose this home specifically because it was close enough for the kids to walk to the lifts and comfortable enough for those who choose to stay behind. Our Cabin was completely remodeled a couple years ago with high-end appliances and everything is brand new. We supply all of the sheets, towels, cookware, dishes and small appliances. There is a microwave, dishwasher, gas range and fridge with an ice maker. Our Cabin will accommodate families or groups of up to 8 guests.

Relax in front of the cozy fireplace in the family room, check your emails with the free WiFi, watch a movie on one of the 2 TV's (with free cable), soak in one of the 2 Jacuzzi bathtubs, lay in bed and enjoy a warm fire from the fireplace in the master bedroom and let the kids play in the snow in the fenced backyard.

About Michele Vaughn

My sister and I live in Orange County with our husbands and teenaged kids. We learned to ski at an early age where our family frequently traveled to Mammoth to enjoy skiing. However, as we grew up and took jobs it became increasingly difficult to make the 5 hour road trip to Mammoth. To our surprise the skiing in Big Bear was great and the drive was so short that we were perfectly relaxed when we arrived. Now our kids are skiers and we can share our love of skiing with them too.

Michele Vaughn purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Michele Vaughn chose Big Bear Lake

We own another larger home in Big Bear that sleeps 20 guests and we frequently received requests from our return guests seeking a smaller property for a smaller group. After looking at many, many properties we choose this home due to close proximity to Bear Mountain (walking distance) and the excellent floor plan.

What makes this cabin unique

Since we often travel with other families we knew what makes a comfortable vacation rental home. We love this home not just because the location but the easy access entry level (just 3 stairs to the front door), there is parking for 2 cars in the driveway, there are 3 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and everything is new! We put a lot of thought into decorating this home and all furnishings are of the highest quality. The photos don't do our home justice since you can't photograph comfort!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is clean, comfortable and cozy and kept us very warm at night. It is perfectly located just a few minutes from both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Also just a few minutes from the main drag and restaurants. The owners were great to work with, very friendly and prompt in their communications. We will definitely look to return here on our next ski trip up to Big Bear. The outside area also looked lovely for a summer day barbeque, but with afternoon temps in the 20s we didn't try it.

Beautiful & Comfortable Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and your house was the perfect cabin for our couples get away. Your home was quiet and the neighborhood serene. I loved the romantic fireplace in the Master bedroom and the Jacuzzi tubs were great too. It was so nice to have the extra fireplace to retreat to at the end of the day. I can't think of anytying I would add to your cabin because you have thought of everything. By the way, I loved the designer bedding--it was so comfortable.

Awesome Cabin that is Walking Distance to Bear Mountain

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay the The Warming Hut cabin. Everything was perfect and it exceeded our expectations. First, it was so nice to be able to walk to the Bear Mountain ski lifts instead of having to fight the traffic. Second, the cabin is so warm and inviting--we just loved having two fireplaces. Finally, it was very clean and the owner was easy to get a hold of.

We can't wait to come back again and again!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at The Warming Hut for our annual Big Bear trip with another couple and our 2 kids. The place was clean and very comfortable...the heater worked great! We were able to park and unload in a flight of stairs to deal with entering the cabin from the front door. The location is perfect as it is close to everything! We made several trips to the grocery store nearby. I think the best part about the cabin is the fenced in backyard...especially if you have young kids. We enjoyed countless hours in the backyard making snowballs and sledding with the kids. The owner is also very responsive. She responded to questions and emails very quickly and was happy to accommodate our early check-in request. We were very happy with our stay and highly recommend this cabin.

Wonderful cabin, great location too!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect little cabin for my friends and I to enjoy a weekend getaway at the mountain. It's close to everything (you can walk to go snowboarding!!) and far enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. We enjoyed the upgrades which made this home so perfect and updated. Thank you so much, Michele, for such a wonderful stay!

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to stay at your cabin it was so amazing. We felt so at home as soon as we walked into the door. It was soon clean and homey. One of the best parts of our trip was having a nice place to stay. Your communication with us was great and that was a nice personal touch. We wouldn't hesitate to book with you again.
