About Bobbi Rae

We have a large family and needed a large home to accommodate everyone. We saw this home and fell in love.

Bobbi Rae purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why Bobbi Rae chose Big Bear Lake

We are very active and not only was this home beautiful, it is also right next to the lake, bike paths, hiking trails, National Forest and both ski resorts.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The views of the lake, Eagle Preserve and National Forest are fantastic. You can watch both sunrises and sunsets and really enjoy being in the mountains.

Wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to a spectacular house that was modern and ready to relax in. Found the hot tub already hot and the place was wonderful for our gathering. All amenities were there and we didn't need much but food. Our guests were beyond thrilled. I highly recommend. Will gladly stay there again.

Great property for a group

  • 5 of 5

The Eagles Nest had everything we could hope for and more. Everyone in the group was impressed when they arrived at the fresh modern alpine style of the home. It was spacious, with game room, garage access to hot tub on the first floor as well as three sleeping rooms. Upstairs is the kitchen and the master bedroom, the second bedroom and the living room

The house manager Izzy was helpful and accessible when some issues not related to the house came up. The house itself accommodated our group of nine adults – one slept on the couch- and four seven-year-old boys perfectly. The bunk bed room have plenty of games and toys. The pictures don't show it but there are two bunkbeds and the bottoms are both doubles so lots of children could sleep there

The basics for comfort were provided and of high-quality such as sheets towels etc. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking items from a crockpot, muffin pans, baking dishes, etc. to cutting boards, measuring cups and the like and had a supply of simple spices, salt and pepper and condinemts available. While when we arrived there were some minimal paper products, you should ask before getting there make sure you have enough paper towels, TP and napkins.

Likewise soaps, lotions etc. as in most rentals are not provided - some of us forgot that part!

It is a suburban home in a new development. The proximity to town and snow summit/bear mountain was close. If you want a more mellow drive we recommend taking the highway 38 through Redlands

We definitely recommend this property and would stay again.

Perfect home for a big familiy trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends stayed at this rental home recently and loved everything about it. The home itself was amazing with something for everyone. Downstairs were 3 bedrooms (1 bedroom had 4 beds, perfect for the kids) and the play/bar area. The upstairs consisted of 2 bedrooms, a living room, a really nice kitchen and 2 dining tables for up to at least 12 people comfortably.

On our weekend trip, it was perfect winter weather and snow covered up the entire front yard, allowing the kids to play in snow just a few steps outside the home. It was amazing that while we were in such a quiet, upscale neighborhood right behind the lake, but if we needed to grab anything from a market or head to the slopes, it took us just 5 minutes to do so.

Overall, everyone on the trip remarked about how perfect the home and location were and we definitely will return in the future.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing! We stayed here with two families. Everything was clean, well-kept, and so many activities! The kids (and adults) were always entertained with a pool table, foosball, ping pong, bean bag toss and the jacuzzi. The gourmet kitchen was equipped with everything you would need to cook for a group of people.

In addition to the great property, the property manager was very helpful and efficient. We would recommend this as a great place to stay.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Close to the slopes (less than a 5 minute drive), plenty of beds, beautiful home. The hot tub was nice and the house is stocked with games, kitchen equipment, dishes, etc.

Cons: There was no access to laundry facilities, which is incredibly difficult when there are 14 people in a house. The layout of the game room is awkward. There isn't really room for the kids to hang out and play away from the adults unless they're in bedrooms, which is also a little weird, or the garage, which is cold. The hot water seemed to be turned down because I had to boil water to heat my bath in the evening, when no one else had been showering or anything.

The price is right and the house is gorgeous, there were just a few little things that I have come to expect from vacation rentals that they didn't have here (laundry being the biggest one).

Owner's Response: We have on-demand hot water so I am not sure why you were having difficulties with temperature. But just to be sure we had someone check it out after your stay. Also we do have laundry facilities available all you have to do is ask if the room is locked.
