About Lorena and Ray

My husband and I fell in love with Big Bear right after we first met. We love the outdoors, spending quality time with our kids and enjoying life away from the hustle and bustle of the city whenever possible. We love coming up here to relax, play, smell the fresh air of the pines, spend time on the lake, swim at the beach, play tennis at the park, go off-roading or biking through the trails, skiing, etc. This is the perfect place to enjoy the outdoors.

Lorena and Ray purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Lorena and Ray chose Big Bear

We chose this property because although it is in the middle of it all, it is very serene and peaceful. Eagle Point is a beautiful peninsula and having the lake and activities so close makes it super convenient for us and fun for the kids.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage-style cabin has a comfortable, charming atmosphere with open beam ceilings and a large brick fireplace to warm you right up on those chilly winter days. It has a fresh feel, open living to kitchen area with old-style oven. We enjoy creating memories here and hope you will too.

Lovely Cabin near all

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay. Very cozy and comfy. Close drive to slopes and nice large backyard where my 4yo played in the snow. Perfect size for the 5 of us and very clean. Definitely would stay again. Thanks!

Perfect Size

  • 4 of 5

Cute home in nice neighborhood near most attractions. Easy access to Meadow Park, shopping and of course the lake. Lake was very low during our visit (15 feet) due to drought, but we had a good time anyways. Home is perfect size for us, we have three kids and the kids room has three beds- perfect! The only draw back, and would not be an issue in the winter, is the stove is "always on" due to the vintage of it, so when we left the home, closing all the windows and doors, the home heated up to near 90 degrees. Took several hrs to cool the home off again after arriving back. Bring a box fan with to help. Would stay again, so this is not a deal breaker. Thanks for the adventure!

Amazing Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay here. We have a small family which includes myself, my husband and my 12 year old daughter so the size was just absolutely perfect. And it's just so well kept, clean, and charming. All the amenities are included...cozy towels, nice linens, kitchen stocked. And it has a wonderful back yard to play around in as well. The heat was fine but our fire in the fireplace added an extra bit of charm. We dearly love this area of Big Bear near the lake and have been staying there for several years in other accommodations. This was our first time staying at Serendipity and we are determined it's not our last. Just a wonderful little vacation spot. Thank you to Lorena and Ray for sharing your little home away from home! We hope we are blessed with another opportunity sometime to stay again.
