Although it looks and feels like Montana surrounding our home we are actually located in one of the most desirable and convenient neighborhoods in Big Bear, just 4 blocks to the slopes and RIGHT across from the ski shuttle pick up for Snow Summit and Bear Mountain ski areas.

We are a short walk, bike ride or drive to all attractions in the Big Bear Area. We are walking distance to Starbucks, Vons Supermarket, restaurants, shops, Blockbuster, the lakeshore, miniature golf, and Meadow Park with swimming beach, tennis, sports fields, fishing pier, picnic tables and play structure. And now Zip Line tours are available nearby.

The free public MWD East Boat/Jet Ski Launch Ramp is only a mile from our door and we are just a block to Elevations Day Spa.

Take a stroll to the lakeshore through our upscale (and not hilly) neighborhood dotted with beautiful old-growth pines and stately home.

Take a short bike ride from our door to the tree-lined 3 mile paved 'Alpine Pedal Path' along the north shore of beautiful Big Bear Lake. Stop and enjoy the informative Big Bear Discovery Center and the numerous trails for all levels of hiking. No bike? Rental shop is only 2 blocks away.

For mountain biking Big Bear is hard to beat. We are central to a network of trails for riding of all levels. And don't miss riding down a choice of great trails from the top of Snow Summit Sky Chair, rising 1100' above the valley floor.

Big Bear Lake itself is great for fishing, water skiing, jet skiing & sailing. If you bring your own boat we are 1 mile to the free public East Launch Ramp on the north shore with a day use picnic area and beach. We are 1.5 miles to Big Bear and Pine Knot Marinas which also have launch ramps as well as boat and jet ski rentals.

We are 3 minutes to quaint Big Bear Village with a variety of shopping from antique stores to unique clothing & souvenir shops, restaurants, arcade, 2 multi-screen movie theaters, bowling, candy & ice cream parlors, etc.

We are 5 minutes to must-see Moonridge Zoo with bear, buffalo, eagle, coyote, birds of prey, deer, reptiles, mountain lion, etc. Call them for decent tours and feeding schedules.

Unlike many rental homes in Big Bear, our flat lot and flat neighborhood makes access very easy during icy or snowy conditions. No struggling to make it up or down steep streets, driveways and walkways during winter months.


With the unusual combination of the numerous amenities mentioned above along with the pool table, ping pong table separate lounge area roomy spa all in such a fantastic location, EAGLE POINT ESCAPE is year- round favorite vacation spot for families, couples and groups.

About Gary A

Gary is a building contractor and Mara is an educational administrator. Along with our two grown sons we have a great love of the outdoors and of the Big Bear area. We feel very fortunate to have such a beautiful home to share with our guests and enjoy working together to enhance it all the time. We are always on the lookout for that new fixture or decoration that will be just right...finding it is our idea of a perfect day.

Gary A purchased this house in 2005

Why Gary A chose Big Bear

We owned another home across the street and observed this home taking shape during construction in 2005. We realized it was an exceptional design with great features and finishes so decided to sell the original home and buy this one instead. No regrets!

What makes this house unique

Eagle Point Escape offers everything a family could hope for in a vacation home. Four bedrooms including two master suites, gameroom with 3 game tables TV and leather sofa, 7 person spa on a large deck surrounding the home, very ample 'great room' with HDTV, Netflix and oversized sofa to seat just about everyone, large gourmet kitchen with island seating and countertops and a location that is arguably the best in Big Bear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I took a group of my recent high school graduates for a leadership retreat. The house had plenty of room for everyone to be in their space and place without crowding each other. The home decor was cozy and functional. This house has everything and I mean everything. We needed tape to post a sign, looked in the drawer and walla -- TAPE. The master bedroom was gorgeous. The kitchen was very spacious, which allowed to teach students how to cook. Plenty of places to relax inside and outside. Whether you want to read a book, watch a movie, relax in the jacuzzi, play air hockey, table tennis, or a game of billards, this house has something for EVERYONE. The location was perfect - walking distance to stores. Less than 5 minutes to the village. About 10 minutes from the lake for kayaking and more. We are already planning to schedule to visit in the winter. LOVED LOVED LOVED this house. It was awesome. Also, the owner was really nice and great to work with. They provide great instructions down to the finest detail for everything. Great house for families, romantic getaway, whatever...great property at a great price. You will not be disappointed.

We loved the location of the property and its easy accessibility to shopping, eating and play.

  • 4 of 5

We found the cabin to be family friendly and spacious for kids and adults to relax and play. We loved the converted garage filled with air hockey, ping pong & pool. This allowed an outlet for kids to burn some energy in their own space.

The cabin had plenty of sleeping options including two master bedrooms. Each room had a television with DVDs that allowed everyone the settle down at the end of the day.

We really enjoyed the jacuzzi each night to unwind for a day of activities.

Looking forward to coming back again in the summer and possibly the winter too.

Wonderful Big Bear Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Gary's house. We enjoyed the open living area, stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, warm jacuzzi and game room. During the summer time, Big Bear is a perfect place for hiking and water sports. After a day of adventure, we enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, lounging on the spacious couch to watch the Olympics, and playing many games of air hockey. Gary provided perfect directions for everything and was available for questions. We will come back!

Clean and spacious. Great for our family member in a wheelchair to get around. Kids loved the garage/game room, large couch and bunk bed room. Large amount of spices and cookware available. It was much apprecIated. Close to Starbucks ! Thanks for a great stay.

Amazing Big Bear Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such an amazing weekend up in Big Bear California. We had all the comforts of home- plus so much more. We enjoyed the comfortable beds, fun games, and incredible kitchen. We didn't eat out once! The patio has a gorgeous wrap around deck, and we spent each of the nights relaxing in the jacuzzi!! We were so sad to leave... and can't wait for our next adventure back up to the lake. Can't wait to come back and stay in the home again, and I would highly recommend it to any of my family and friends. We can't thank the Abrams family enough for opening up their home to our family, and all their hospitality!
