This vacation rental was absolutely perfect for our gathering of 12 looking to escape LA for the weekend. The house is great - spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and with all the amenities. The deck is the best feature and we spent both evenings grilling and relaxing in the hot tub. Beautiful views of the stars of the deck away from the city lights! This vacation home rental was exactly as advertised and is perfect for group gatherings. We would definitely stay here again!
Ideal home base for a summer gathering
We were a group of twelve spending a weekend in Big Bear to celebrate a 29th birthday. We were thrilled to escape the city and The Lake House offered us the ideal mountain destination. It was warm in Big Bear but The Lake House is conveniently located near the marina for boat rentals and the activity guide provided by the owners listed several nearby lake entry points for swimming, so we managed to stay cool without any trouble. Evenings were pleasantly cool, and we slept happily with the windows open. The Lake House is well appointed for groups and we enjoyed cooking several meals in the house and dining out on the spacious deck. One of our favorite memories from the weekend was relaxing in the jacuzzi. We never get clear skies like that in LA! Just breathtaking. It's worth mentioning the house is within walking distance of Big Bear Village. Our group was very happy to discover that all of downtown's dining and nightlife options were only a short walk from our front door. Overall, a wonderful weekend.
Highly Recommended Big Bear Cabin!
First, the owner was super nice, she answered all of my questions and gave us great customer service. The photos accurately represent the interior of the home and the amenities. The layout was functional for our needs and the location easy to find and access. Parking was not a problem. The house is very clean and is well maintained, it looks like most of the furnishings are new within the past year. We spent the weekend skiing and soaking in the spa--it was great! We went into town and walked around at night and sat by the outside fire-pits in town. Big Bear is much improved recently and the Lake House is a great place to stay. I have already recommended this cabin to my friends and family.
Fabulous Family Vacation
You know you've found the perfect place when no one wants to go back home. The Lake House was perfect for our entire family, group of 14 including grandma and grandpa. The pictures accurately reflect the condition of the home and we loved the cottage feel. The owners did a perfect job of utilizing the space and thinking of little details that would be appreciated by their guests. My wife and I miss our super cozy master bedroom. The large outside jacuzzi was great for some after dinner relaxing and we used it every night after skiing. The backyard is the perfect playground for the kids to sled and snow play while still being heard. We are already talking about returning during the summer and enjoying the lake across the street. The owner answered the phone every time I called and she kindly answered all of my many questions. Thanks Michele!
The Perfect Family Reunion Location
This year we chose the Lake House to spend our annunal pre-Christmas family gathering in Big Bear. I chose the Lake House because it reminded me of a historic lakeside cottage but with modern ammenities. I wanted to rent a property with a view of the lake but we were limited on funds and the Lake House was perfect. I feel like we paid a very reasonable price for a very nice home. There was 14 members of my family aged from 1 to 84 and everyone was super comfortable. We loved that the kids had their own upstairs loft area and the adults had the living room to talk and watch TV. We all played in the snow and it was like having a big pajama party that lasted for a few nights. The parking was convienent for our 6 cars. The owner was able to answer all of our questions and she made the booking process very simple. We are already talking about coming back during the summer time.
Can't Wait for Our Next Stay!
LOVED the cabin!!! The layout was perfect (2 bedrooms and the sleeping loft upstairs with the Master bedroom, kitchen and a HUGE family room on the entry level). The location was perfect (5 minutes from the Village, 10 minutes from the slopes). The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware—they even have some spices, sugar and flour. The house was extremely clean and when we needed to do a quick clean up, we found all the cleaning supplies and there was a wide variety of them. The bedrooms were warm and cozy and the beds and pillows were extremely comfortable. We had only 12 people, but we could have easily slept a few more very comfortably. The couches were also ridiculously comfortable, and people could easily sleep on those. The owners were super helpful when I emailed them and were able to answer any questions that I had. They also provided detailed instructions for our arrival and our departure. I would most definitely recommend this house to friends and family. I can't wait for my next stay!!!
