Transplants both - one from Anchorage and one from Upstate NY, we met on rollerblades in Venice Beach. We got married in Napa CA, and moved into our Venice Bungalow in 2002...not long after along came a couple of cool kids named Braeden and Emme. So we rebuilt the Bungalo and started our little family. We wanted to find a mountain home to allow our kids to enjoy and appreciate nature like we had the good fortune to do as kids. We found that place and so much more on Eagle Point in Big Bear. We've created many memories over the years with friends and family - from swimming, boating, fishing and hiking in summer to skiing, sledding and cuddling in front of a toasty fire with a classic movie in the winter - every season is special in Big Bear! We try to get up as much as possible, to reconnect with nature and with each other. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
Jim and Janelle Riley purchased this lodge in 2011
We bought our Lodge in 2011 from custom builders Bob & Gina Gilligan, who live next door and have become our good friends. They built the home as a Designer Showcase, and they spared no detail on the design or function. What they created is a mountain masterpiece and we feel blessed to own this unique Big Bear Lodge. This is the quintessential SoCal Mountain Lake House, with plenty of room for friends and family - featuring true Log Home beauty and unparalleled Lake and Sunset views. The location on Eagle Point is private and serene, but it's also close to great skiing, the Village shops and restaurants, and other area attractions. There is simply no better way to experience the beauty and splendor of Big Bear Lake and our magnificent San Bernardino Mountains! Live it, Up!
When you stay at a resort Lodge like ours, you expect the luxury of a 5 star hotel, but you also want the comforts of home. That's what we strive to provide to our guests. Just minutes from everything you want to do while visiting Big Bear, but secluded on Eagle Point so it's quiet and peaceful. It is a custom Log Lodge with cathedral ceilings and windows overlooking the Lake, but it's also warm and inviting, featuring a custom chef's kitchen and community dining for 12, with cozy furnishings and entertainment spaces on every floor. It was featured in the independent thriller 'Silent Retreat' which was filmed in the Spring of 2013. But we always say the best films are shot by friends and family, and our returning guests who sometimes share them with us. Days on the lake or in the mountains, preparing and sharing great meals and memorable special events, and relaxing with a glass of wine under a starry sky; those are the pictures we love to see and the moments we love to share!
Just close your eyes and think about Mountain high, Lakefront serenity. You'll be here sooner than you think, and we hope you come back over and over again.
This was our first time using homeaway.com. Even though the website was very helpful we could not say enough about our experience with the owners of the home. It was beyond amazing. Since we were traveling with a big group they help relieve the stress ;).The house had everything we needed to make sure our family trip was a success and we didn't need to leave the house once they had everything and anything you need. The pics of the house on the website are nice but the house is beautiful from to the entry way to the back of the house! Thank you again Riley family for such a great experience! We can't wait to plan our next trip in this house!!!
I have rented a number of cabins in Big Bear over the years, and this beauty is by far the BEST I have stayed in. Every room was gorgeously decorated, nothing I would have changed.
Will be back again next year and possibly the summer!!!
We had a wonderful fall vacation at your beautiful home. Had all the amenities you could ask for. Comfortable beds, quite location, fantastic kitchen !!
Enjoyed everything about this house and property. We would highly recommend and we will be renting this home again.
I simply cannot say enough about this fantastic property! I held a small family reunion there and there were "oohs and aahs" the moment we entered the house. It has unique charm, and character at every turn. My family was blown away by the attention to detail and craftsmanship. The cathedral ceiling and stone fireplace are striking. The log cabin feel and rustic charm are coupled with a surprising level of luxury. The chef's kitchen has a beautiful granite island and having two dishwashers and two sinks made clean up a breeze. The bathrooms are spacious and newly renovated with top of the line amenities. The open floor plan is ideal for socializing and the game room / movie theater upstairs made just being there it's own form of entertainment. The views of the lake were straight out of a postcard and the furnishings are warm and comfortable. Even the towels and bedding are new and top notch. My family never stopped raving about our time there!
It's also worth mentioning that the owners couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They provided tons of recommendations for activities and restaurants and responded quickly whenever I needed info. This property far surpassed my already high expectations and I look forward to returning. If you're looking for a first class, luxury getaway you can stop looking. You've found it!
Our visit to Big Bear was amazing, the highlight of our trip was defiantly the Grand Lodge, so beautiful. The photos online do not do this home justice! There is so many details in the craftsmanship to home furnishings.
You will not be disappointed in this home. In fact, I will be revisiting as a result of the overwhelming warmth of this amazing cabin.
There were 7 of us and plenty of space, nice size bedrooms, great family room and a well equipped kitchen. We had a really nice time and appreciated having such beautiful views of the lake and such a comfortable place to hang out and play game and make memories!
