• Panoramic views of both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit from the expansive deck

• Perfect space for a romantic getaway or relaxing with family and friends
• Mid-century modern decor

The space
Whether you're here to ski, hike, swim or just escape city life, you'll find Alterra House is the perfect spot for your getaway.

We love to entertain, so we've tried to anticipate your needs and make your stay as comfortable and carefree as possible.

There are two bedrooms on the main floor and another in the loft to give you space to spread out and unwind. The loft bedroom is set back for privacy and has spectacular views of both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. There's also a cozy sitting area in the loft that's perfect for sipping your morning coffee or reading a book.

The open-concept kitchen is small but features full-sized stainless steel appliances, plus all the pots, pans and cooking utensils you need to make great meals. If the weather is nice, there's also an infrared gas grill on the deck. Once your meal is complete, sit back and enjoy it in the dining room with seating for six or al fresco on the deck with mountain views.

The cabin is located on a dead-end street that's just steps away from the National Forest for endless hiking possibilities.

At night, unwind with our collection of board games, puzzles and books. You can also watch Netflix (the cabin has an account) on the Smart TV or relax with music using the Klipsch Bluetooth speaker. The wood-burning stove will keep you cozy all evening long.

Where you’ll be

Big Bear, California, United States

The cabin is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood on the sunny north side of Big Bear Lake. You'll often see kids riding bikes on the quiet streets and friendly neighbors walking their dogs. The cabin location is ideal because you're still close to all that Big Bear has to offer, but skip the town traffic and noise by taking the scenic highway. We're about 10 minutes away from both ski resorts, and 5 minutes from the grocery stores.

We ask that all guests please be respectful of the neighbors. Many live there year-round and are in the neighborhood because it is peaceful.

My husband, two young children and I live in San Diego, but we're originally from the Midwest. Big Bear gives us a little taste of home with the seasons and fresh water lake. We love to entertain, explore outdoors and hunt for mid-century decor. When we want to escape city life, our cabin is the perfect place to unwind. We hope you find it as comfortable and relaxing as we do!
