Big Bear Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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

Call for current specials, 310-721-2660. We've lowered our prices to offset the new fees. At these rates it is a great deal even with the extra fee.

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

~~The spa!

~~Sled hill and park steps away!!!

~~We have a plug in the garage for the Tesla : )

About Tara

My husband, my two kids and I love getting out of the city for a mountain escape. We are lucky to live in S. Ca. where you can live in a busy metropolitan area yet be in the mountains in just two hours! (Don't drive during rush hour!) Big Bear has four seasons, clean air, beautiful skies….we love it! The cabin is a labor of love…we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

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, : )

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!"

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at this cabin. Tara, the owner, is extremely responsive and her cabin is well taken care of, clean, and has a great layout. You won't be disappointed!

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.

I've been staying with Tara in the fall for 5 years in a row I think. Its been a few since I wrote a review because, well…what is there left to say? The place is perfect. Always immaculately clean and well maintained, but not sterile. Its like you're going to your really neat Aunt's house. Its just that your Aunt isn't home and she lives near the best SoCal skiing, a pristine forest, fun local restaurants & pubs, and a zoo. Oh yeah…your Aunt has a bitchin' hot tub!!! My kids look forward to this all year and are sad to leave. I pretend not to be sad to leave. Gotta be strong for the little ones.

Just book it. You'll feel smart later.

Owner's Response: can I adopt you, : ) What is there left to say??? I agree!!! Just when I think you've written the most delightful do it again! Really for all of you looking at my cabin...we have never met. Yet we have known each other it 5 years, I do think it is going on 5. Your kids are bigger, one of mine became an adult this month. Thank you for these fun, incredibly wonderful words. That is the goal...spotless yet a home away from home. You just say it better than I do!!! Thank you, : )

Well-appointed, cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a fall weekend in this lovely cabin. It was perfect for our family of four! It was very clean and organized, modern and every need seemed to anticipated by all of the thoughtful touches. We loved the hot-tub; the cozy sectional leather couch; and the king-size bed. My kids loved that there were two sets of bunk beds in the children's space. No arguing over who got the top bunk! There were books, games, movies, puzzles and toys. We loved the location being a bit quieter and only a short drive to the village. Tara, the owner, was efficient, kind and so easy to work with. She answered any questions I emailed with promptly. We would love to stay here again sometime!
