Why Izzy Barden chose Big Bear Lake

In 2011, we had never been to Big Bear, and within 4 hours of arriving for the first time we laid eyes on this property. We have a large extended family, and we knew it was perfect for our second home for friends and family.

This home is beautiful, inside and out.

  • 4 of 5

The open area concept of the kitchen/dinning/living room is great for entertaining large groups. There were 13 of us staying for the weekend, and there was plenty of space. The kitchen is well stocked with most any appliance (including a rice cooker and large cube whiskey ice-tray courtesy of our forgetful group lol) and other essentials like cooking oil and seasonings.

The outside area is amazing as well, with a sloped hill that sometimes is covered with snow, and a hot tub and bocce court that was used early and often during our stay.

The house is also about 5-10 minutes away from Bear Mtn. and Snow Summit, as well as a couple local grocery stores and eateries.

There were a couple of issues that prevented us from giving the property 5 stars. During the first night, the heater wasn't working. We texted the property manager Jason, who in turn contacted the owners to adjust the thermostat remotely. Though it seemed to work during the day, later the next night it stopped working again. Also, we seemed to run out of hot water after the first few showers of each morning.

Despite these minor hiccups, the property and service we received were excellent. We appreciate the beautiful home and look forward to staying here in the future. Thanks!

Excellent location and amazing house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a weekend get away with a large group of friends/couples. The property perfectly accommodated everyone and was conveniently located close to the slopes, restaurants and grocery stories. Property management made the process seamless from start to finish. There was a small hiccup with the internet and Jason was there to immediately get it handled. Overall I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

1. Kitchen and living room area are very open with a nice flat screen TV, and became the main spot for gathering throughout the day. We cooked and enjoyed the view from the cabin.

2. Backyard and front yard had plenty of snow for kids. We did not have to go snow tubing - everything was right there!

3. Master suite was gorgeous.

Cons:

1. Can you put instruction about the thermometer called Nest? It was hard for us to figure out to turn on the heater over night.

2. Beds in other rooms could be better. One person complained of back pain...

Despite a few listed above, all my family loved the stay at this place.

Would definitely love to visit again!

Beautiful home, excellent location, wonderful experience!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is beautiful! Wonderful place to stay! A group of 12 friends stayed in this cabin for a long weekend, it was a winter snowboarding trip. The location could not have been better, only 5 min from both ski/snowboarding resorts, Big Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Also, very close to a grocery store and gas, the lot is tucked away so you can see other homes but you're not right on top of each other so there is privacy.

The inside of the cabin is so beautiful and it was extremely spacious for 12 people, you could have fit more. The kitchen is amazing! It had everything we needed to cook homemade meals both nights we were there. The large grate room with a fireplace really set the mood for a winter getaway, the loft overlooking was very nice as well, it has a piano so when someone played you could hear it, very enjoying. The hot tub was nice after a day of snowboarding and there was also a hill in the back of the house so we went sledding too, which was very fun, the owner provided sleds.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience staying here and I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone. The organizer was very helpful and kind, allowed us to check-in early and had the cabin ready for us on time.

My only reason for not giving this cabin a 5 star is because there was no salt provided for the outside walkways and driveway, it was very icy and we had a few people fall and cars were sliding back. We had to break up the ice ourselves with shovels we found in the garage, not the most ideal situation but we had to clear areas for the tires to keep the cars from sliding and us from falling. Thankfully nobody was hurt but salt should be provided especially in the winter months. Also, the master bedroom where I stayed was freezing! It seemed as if the heat does not travel there very well and the fireplace inside does not give off much heat, we had to put two extra blankets on the bed.

Superb cabin! My family had THE best time and felt "at home" in this cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was amazing! My family stayed here for a weekend and it was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked, there was an abundance of towels and extra bedding, and it was clean! It's a perfect place for a small family gathering /weekend getaway for a couple small families. We had a great time and will definitely be booking this again in the future!

Beautiful Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was beautiful and comfortable for all 16 of us. We really enjoyed our stay; however, there were a few kinks as far as communicating check-in times and taking the trash to the disposal. However, we will be prepared next time :) overall great experience.
