Overview

Big Bear Lake Chalet Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

(Second bedroom is a huge loft which easily sleeps 4, please see pictures) Talk about location, location, location!! Awesome neighborhood and close to everything but still tucked away. This beautiful Chalet offers great curb appeal with a large deck to enjoy bbq's, entertaining and the mountain fresh air. Enter the cabin and enjoy the layout with nice huge vaulted ceilings, typical of Swiss European Chalets, airy open floor plan with a modern but rustic feel! Nice living room area to relax and watch TV or socialize, kitchen is nice and open with tons of cabinet space and a long bar top, kitchen table is next to a warm fireplace for the option of cozy meals, slide open the wooden shutters to take advantage of all the natural light and the views, Master bedroom has a queen size bed and is a decent size room with its own master bath, guest bath offers dual sinks and a sunken tub for nice relaxing baths after a fun day of hiking, skiing, snowboarding or just being busy in the mountains. Huge loft (loft is considered the second bedroom) offers a bunk bed and pull out sleeper futon, there's a small TV with built in DVD player for kids to enjoy and keep busy or even adults for that matter, also free WIFI! The cabin is set up for 8 people max, ideally at least 2 of them being children, the cabin is 1208 square feet so 8 adults may be a tight squeeze. There is no air conditioning which is extremely common in Big Bear, the majority of cabins don't have A/C due to the cooler temperatures in the mountains so feel free to open the windows and enjoy the breeze. Come enjoy the Chalet and look forward to a relaxing time in the beautiful mountains! No pets allowed. No Smoking Allowed Please! The cabin is 1208 square feet, please keep that in mind when considering making a reservation. Read the remarks in the rates section below regarding our smoking policy. Winter and holiday rates are higher, and possible 2 night minimum stay. Please feel free to inquire, Thanks!!

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Perfect Big Bear getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable cabin. The cabin is very spacious and feels larger than it really is. I will definitely come back again in the very near future.

Beautiful cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Chalet very much. The cabin is actually much larger than the pictures seem. The upstairs loft is perfect for children and the kitchen and living room are both very large and inviting as well. We enjoyed sledding in the back yard which is also a good size since it is a corner lot.

We will definitely be back to spend more quality family time in the snow here!

Beautiful Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family LOVED our stay in this BEAUTIFUL Cabin. This cabin is located in the perfect location very close to everything only like a 2 minute drive to Snow Summit which was great being that I had to drop off and pick up 2 teenagers very convenient for sure. Honestly the cabin couldn't have been anymore perfect felt like we were at home and not in a rented cabin which was very comfortable indeed! This will be our Cabin of choice next time we travel to Big Bear. Oh one more thing George O'Balle was available at anytime by providing us with his cell phone which proves honesty and trust fyi I never had to call him but having the number made me a little more at ease if anything was to go wrong or happen which was not the case at all!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

Adorable cabin

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at this cabin. Mr. O'Balle's interior sense is amazing. Only issue was there is no A/C. It was very warm in day time. I am not sure about visiting here in summer but definitely in cool weather season. Mr. O'Balle concerns visitor's situation and does best to make our trip easy and comfortable. Thank you, so much.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was comfortable and exactly as promised. The refrigerator was not cooling down, when we arrived but a call to George was all that was needed to have it repaired. The cabin does get quite warm when closed up, but cools off nicely at night and the loft stairs are very steep so take care coming down them, one of our ladies fell. We had to buy wash cloths since only one was provided, and we did not use the hand held shower as there is no shower curtain and we were afraid we would soak the whole room. We went to the Alpine Zoo, The Miss Liberty Lake Cruise and Wine & Music at the Nottingham Tavern, all of which were very well done. The Lake fire put a damper on our last day and we decided to leave a day early due to the air quality. Otherwise, it was great.
