About the property

4 Bed Lakefront Log Cabin; Spa, Luxury Kitchen; Kid's Playroom, Decks

Refurbished lakefront/view log cabin sleeps 14. 2801 square feet.

We bought and refurbished “Fishing Bear” in 2015 to be just right for our family and guests. Look out from the gourmet kitchen, over the log countertop island, across the 12 person dining area, through the comfy leather couches surrounding the fireplace, to the deck, play area, lake and park. The layout with log construction, hand scraped wood floors, high ceilings and large windows oriented towards the lake and park will draw your family and friends together in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.

Enjoy sunset views over the lake, observatory, and mountains beyond. See lighted ski slopes from the back deck and front yard. Relax on the up and downstairs decks spanning the back of the house. Upstairs is a small table with chairs for reading or taking in the quiet and view (or perhaps a baseball game when in season). The lower deck has a table and umbrella, as well as a barbeque grill, smoker, and spa. Pair your device with the spa’s sound system for tunes outside. Relax in the 110 jet, 7 person hot tub during a snowstorm or staring at the bright stars above. Enjoy peace and quiet on the front porch and front and side courtyards. Watch blue jays, squirrels, woodpeckers and birds of prey all around.

Listen and relax while the kids play. Both decks sit over the backyard play area. Your kids will keep busy in their “fort” with slides and swings set in rubber mulch, or on the vintage pinball machine, or in the playroom upstairs with Thomas Train sets, cars and a coloring table with butcher block paper provided.

Make popcorn and have movie night upstairs with the 65-inch 4K TV with 5.1 surround. Use our Apple movie library, or Netflix, Amazon Prime or Cable. Watch movies in private from the downstairs master with the cast iron gas stove blazing and a 4K 50-inch TV with a 3.1 surround. Better yet, enjoy a roaring wood fire in the family room where there is no TV, and a cabinet filled with cards and games.

Cook for the group in the kitchen with the 36-inch commercial oven (4 burners and stainless electric grill), two counters with separate sinks, large pantry and refrigerator, and high quality pots, pans, small appliances and utensils.

Notice the quiet of the radiant heating that provides comfortable warmth with no hot or cold drafts, and the solar array that produces all the power we need and more. Sink into the soft carpet upstairs. Sleep well with new bedding, pillows and mattresses or memory toppers on each bed. There are 4 rooms with 9 beds so there is plenty of space. There also are a 2 pac n plays and an extra mattress under the downstairs master bed for parents who want toddlers to sleep on the ground in the room with them.

In the summer and fall, pick blackberries, grapes, apples and other fruits from the well-lighted and sculpted grounds with wide paths and paver courtyards and walkways.

Checking in is easy with electronic access and no need to pick up or drop off keys. There is firewood provided on site with gas lighting so you don’t have to waste precious vacation time loading firewood in your car or struggling to get it lit.

(Note that although water abuts the property when the lake is full, due to the low lake level and shallow area behind the home, the lake is far away (200 yards + or -). The maximum is 14 guests with 5 cars. Please do not pack more than this into our home.) Have fun and don’t hesitate to ask questions.

About Paul

Family of 5 with mom, dad, 13 year-old-daughter, twin 3-year-old boys and golden retriever, Scout.

Paul purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Paul chose Big Bear Lake

After visiting Big Bear for years, we wanted a place that suited us just right, with a stunning water view, real log construction, cozy inside, dock (when the water comes up), and room to run, play and entertain.

What makes this cabin unique

We hope you will enjoy the home. It is furnished with all the things we like to use such as high quality kitchen items and bedding. We want you to enjoy yourself. One thing we notice in renting homes is the amount of time, effort and mess to bring everything up, especially firewood. That is why we provide firewood. It also is why we provide electronic access so you do not have to trudge through town to get and drop of keys during your precious vacation time.

2nd Stay - Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this cabin and same as the first it was perfect. We stayed there with a couple other families when our sons had a baseball tournament. We have younger children and they absolutely love the playground. Everything you need is provided. We really enjoy this cabin and plan on staying there again.

Great experience!

This was a great cabin for our family (with three young kids)! It was well located and Paul was super easy to deal with. I'd certainly come back again and would recommend it to other families.

What a fabulous place

  • 5 of 5

This property had all that you would need when away from home. From the stunning house to the children's play area, everything was perfect. There's were plenty of towels provided. They had even provided shampoo, conditioner and body cream! Unfortunately the pinball didn't work while we were there but the fault was identified and I'm sure it will be rectified soon. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect for families with small children!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay here! This cabin has it all: amenities, toys, play spaces, nature and tranquility! The views to the lake are stunning from this property. There is a great zip-line park behind the cabin where my kids had a blast! Jesse, the property manager, was very accessible and attentive as well. My five-year-old said this was the best vacation in the world! I highly recommend this property to any family with young was perfect.
