Sugarloaf Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms/ 2 Bathrooms ~ Master Bath ~ Second Full Bath ~ Sleeps 8

See Oktoberfest Weekend Pricing Below~Nice Price Cut!

If we are booked here try our other cabin right next door, Sugar Cub (search for 4285330), or book both cabins and bring the whole gang! Now all about The Bear...

Everything is first class, modern comforts yet still a true mountain cabin with stone fireplace and pine wood accents galore! It is our goal to keep Sugar Bear a great mountain escape...walk in, fall in love and enjoy!

Large HD Flat screen tucked away in a pine armoire. Comfy King size beds (we get many compliments on these!), first class kitchen and great room for entertaining. Peace and quiet, adjacent to National Forest, with the best sledding hill steps away. Top of the line spa on a private redwood deck, only you and the stars!

Tennis, playground, basketball and skate board park a comfortable stroll down the street. Minutes drive to skiing, dining and Big Bear Village yet secluded from the commercial area creating a true mountain escape! And...take it for granted Sugar Bear is always immaculate! As owners we are picky....expect the best!

What renters love about Sugar Bear:

~~The high pine log ceiling in the great room

~~Tasteful decor, comfy and personal, true home away from home

~~Kitchen layout near the living/dining/island bar

~~Kitchen contents for cooking up a great meal

~~Cleanliness and lack of clutter

~~Books, movies, games, puzzles and for both adults and kids

~~Beautiful views off the front porch and back deck

About Tara

It is our goal to keep Sugar Bear (search for 928937) and Sugar Cub (search for 4285330) two great mountain retreats…walk in, fall in love and enjoy! You can always assume our cabins are immaculate and in tiptop shape. Come to take in the views of the oaks and pines, listen to the birds and the beautiful sound of the strong mountain wind. Hiking, boating, skiing or hunkering down in the cabin for good meals, beautiful views, movies, game time, spa time. We love it all and we welcome you to experience all Big Bear has to offer. Sugar Bear and Sugar Cub Lodge await you with open paws!

Tara purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Tara chose Big Bear

What a great question! Why did we buy this property….you will know the minute you open the door, : ) A true log cabin with spectacular mountain decor creates the perfect escape. We love the private street, dead ends at National Forest with a sled hill steps away. Rarely see a car, although plenty of birds, beautiful oak trees and clean mountain air! Rent both cabins and bring the entire gang.

What makes this cabin unique

Log, Log, Log, great sunlight in the cabin, wonderful covered front porch with a view of the tree tops. The Spa. The Great Room Mountain Style. The Great Kitchen. No Junk Drawers! The Empty Garage! Steps to the National Forest with a great sled hill and the park in the opposite direction with tennis, basketball and a skate board park!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Submitted on our previous website:

"I almost don't want to tell anyone about this because I am kind of selfish about things I love, but being that this is the holiday time of year, one good deed deserves another. The place is fun, great looking / feeling and peaceful. The high ceilings and wood put you at ease right away. I sat at the kitchen bar for hours reading and sipping wine. My two kids were in heaven. Tara has a ton of games, puzzles and toys for them to play with. They didn't touch what we brought up. The kids room is so fun, my son now wants bunk beds. Watched the laker game and all sorts of football on the flat screen and slept like a stone in the master bed. What is really unusual is that everything is where you need it. The toilet backed up once and in the first cabinet I looked...there was a plunger. Problem solved. Needed to make some tea... tea kettle was in the first place I looked. Its like you're at home, with snow. Could go on about the nice hot tub on a snowy night, lounging by the fire or walking to the Natl. Forest, but then YOU might book my next trip here. Tara is nice and easy to deal with and left very clear instructions. We have booked many vacation homes and these were the most easy to decipher. Kudos!"

WOW! That was my first word. This cabin had everything we were looking for and more. Extremely clean, the cleanest cabin I have every rented in Big Bear. And everything is in great shape, seems like all new. The decorations are perfect, we all were so impressed. The outside deck was private and quiet, and my kids and I loved watching the birds, it is so pretty. We had many good dinners, the kitchen has everything to cook, and again it is clean and new! I did not want to leave. We are planning a winter trip. This is our go to cabin in Big Bear. Loved it!

Spacious and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time with friends in a cozy home. Tara is amazing, very responsive and I was lucky enough to meet her. The place is very cozy, very clean and was perfect for our stay. The spa was a great addition and had a nice view of the night sky.

Great retreat in the mountains with family

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and location was everything we expected. Very well kept, clean and quiet. Our two daughters had a great time in the spa, watching wildlife from the patio and playing in the kids rooms that has tons of toys and bunk beds, what more could they need? Adults had a great time likewise as our daughters were happy.There's a great restaurant down the street that has take-out as well in case you don't want to cook and there are a number of markets in the area, so no need to go to far. Getting in and setting up was easy, instructions were great and everything worked out without any trouble. Absolutely loved our stay and look forward to coming back in the winter to see some snow. Thank you Tara!

Perfect Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this beautiful, cozy cabin. Three generations stayed together and this gem accommodated us all for the long Thanksgiving weekend. The kitchen is well stocked, the Jacuzzi hot, plenty of family friendly board games, super clean. My kids loved the bunk beds and that there was a tv in their room. The owner, Tara, could not have been more helpful and pleasant and got back to us quickly with miscellaneous inquiries. It even snowed! We hope to make this spot a family tradition!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cabin last week and had a lovely time! The space was perfect for our group. My only complaint...there was no snow. But that was Mother Nature's fault, not anyone else's. The kids still had a great time and we got plenty of rest and relaxation so overall our trip to Sugarloaf was a success.
