The summer rate, from late May to early September, includes unlimited use of pontoon boat. The spring and fall rates do not include pontoon boat.

Wonderful rental

Very nice cabin with great amenities; pontoon boat, canoe and kayaks. Beautiful lake views. Owner, Dennis, is excellent to work with, very quick responses with any questions we had during our stay. We will definitely be returning next year.

Great vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Overall I was very satisfied with the house and only have one main complaint. The house needs a good spring cleaning. There is a lot of broken and unusable items around that could be thrown away. There are several broken fans in the closet along with many dvd players / remotes that didn't work and were still there. Also, there is no pantry in the kitchen and not a lot of storage space. When you open up the cabinets it is completely unorganized and filled with left over items that could also be thrown away. When I went to do laundry there were also several empty boxes of detergent left.

As far as the house, it was great and there was plenty of room for 5 kids and 4 adults. The outdoor space is amazing which is were we spent most of our time. We loved the easy access to the lake and having our own boat / dock was worth it. Its too bad the water is so low and I wouldn't be surprised if the dock becomes unusable soon.......

What a bargain!

  • 4 of 5

One of the best bargains on the lake. Having access to a pontoon boat, kayaks, and a canoe ensure that you will have a fantastic time on the lake. We stayed 9 days, and our family loved it, out on the water every day.

Try renting a pontoon boat every day for 9 days, and you will see what a bargain this is. Great sitting on the lower or upper deck in the morning and evenings made for a relaxing vacation/family get together. Bedrooms were comfortable, amenities in the house were great, 2 big screen TV's with all movie channels made for relaxing evenings. Having a fenced back yard was also a big plus as owners are amenable to having a dog in the house. I have stayed at 4 different places in Big Bear, and this is by far the best in terms of all the amenities for the price.

Beautiful Veiw for a Great Value

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home located on Boulder Bay. The home was cozy, clean and well organized. The hot tub was also clean and amazing to use on a cool summer night. Having the boat at our disposal was the best part. We used it for both early morning fishing excursions and afternoon cruises. I would definitely recommend this home.

Nice quiet vacation on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Big Bear Lake and would recommend this house as an excellent place to stay. The house was well represented by the photographs on the web site and there were absolutely no unpleasant surprises. Dennis was very responsive with the few questions that we had both before and after our arrival and made it a very positive experience. It was fantastic to have the use of the pontoon boat which was in excellent condition and we spent a great deal of time enjoying the kayaks and canoe in the bay. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation and we hope to return again in the future.

Great house at a great price.

  • 4 of 5

We only had a couple days at this house but it was worth every penny. The pictures of this house are pretty up to date. If you have pets like we did the fenced in backyard is perfect. The location is gorgeous, unfortunately the lake was very low but we were still able to use the boat which ran great. I would definetly recommend this place and plan to stay there on our next trip to big bear.
