The space
THE VIBE:
Stōkhaus Chalet is our groovy, A-frame-like cabin built in 1966. We have refurbished the entire 600-square-foot space in the spirit of the era during which it was built by adding both new and vintage details throughout that will surely make you smile. All the walls and ceilings are tongue-and-groove pine, and the main living space soars two stories high with picture windows overlooking the pines. To complement all that lovely wood, we installed brand new cork flooring throughout to bring warmth and some mid-century vibes. The cabin is ideal for two people - choose the lower sleeping area or loft depending on your preferences. We can accommodate up to four people, just be aware that the sleeping areas are only semi-private. They are enclosed by walls on three sides but there are no doors. If you appreciate lofty spaces, then you will love it. Our housekeepers are super meticulous about sanitizing between guests, so come practice some “social distancing” while taking a step back in time!

LIVING & DINING:
The bright orange wood-burning fireplace is the focal point of the living space, and the colorful shag rug really ties the room together! We can seat up to four people on our brand-new custom sectional sofa, or two people can lay down and watch Netflix on the smart 4k Roku HDTV (no cable here, streaming only). We've also got a vintage turntable and speakers with some groovy vinyl selections as well as a collection of vintage games, puzzles, and magazines that will transport you to another time. The retro dining table can also seat up to four, illuminated by a giant globe chandelier. We have a gas wall heater controlled by a Nest thermostat, which is the primary source of heat for the living spaces and loft.

KITCHEN:
We built a brand new tiny kitchen in a retro style, complete with shiny teal cabinets sporting chrome hardware from the original kitchen, a brand new tiny gas stove, and a retro mini fridge. Sorry, there is no space for a freezer here beyond a small ice tray shelf, but we've found that the fridge has plenty of room for a few day's worth of groceries, which is all you really need. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cookware, glassware, utensils, and servingware you could ever need, including a crockpot and vintage fondue pot! Sorry, we don't have space for a dishwasher. But we do have a big sink with disposal and shiny new sprayer faucet.

LOWER SLEEPING AREA:
Emerge beyond the groovy bead curtain to enter the lower sleeping area, and be greeted by a comfy queen-size spindle bed with down comforter, vintage wool blanket, and plush Lucid mattress. The highlight of this room really is the refurbished vintage electric fireplace! Not only does it heat the room really effectively but it also has illuminated and animated logs to add kitschy ambiance. The single bathroom is accessed from this sleeping area, but you can draw the room divider curtains if you desire additional privacy.

LOFT:
Ascend the redesigned staircase with shag carpet up to our cozy loft to be greeted by a small seating area overlooking the living room. Turn the corner to find a symmetrical A-frame sleeping space with vintage tulip end tables and teak dressers. The queen-size Floyd platform bed with luxurious Floyd mattress is covered with a down comforter and alpaca wool blanket to keep you extra warm while you're dreaming of snow days. The loft is the warmest space in the house, heated by the fireplace and wall heater in the living room below. In the summertime, you can cool the loft with fans and open windows.

BATHROOM:
The small bathroom includes a shower (no tub) and vanity, shiny chrome accessories, and the grooviest wallpaper and mirror on the mountain. We provide all the towels and bath amenities.

THE SITE:
Stōkhaus is situated about 80 feet away from the street on a sloping lot that’s about 185 feet deep. This means you’ll enjoy the privacy of a deep front and back yard, which is a fun place to sled or warm up for the slopes on a snowy day. Up to two cars can be parked on the flat driveway which includes a wooden bridge over a seasonal stream. Then you’ll walk up a gravel footpath to reach the stairs leading up to the deck and main entrance. The redwood deck includes two chairs for lounging. In the back yard, we have two hammocks and a small propane grill where you can chill in the shade of the pines while you cook out.

Where you’ll be

Big Bear, California, United States

Our neighborhood in Big Bear city is a few blocks from the Boulevard, heavily forested, and generally very flat with the exception of the knoll where our home is situated on. That means it's easy to get to and park, but you'll still enjoy the benefits of a hillside home being high up in the trees. There are many full-time residences around our cabin, so guests will be expected to respect the peaceful neighborhood setting. Pickles Pie Shop is down the street for you early risers - their pies are so good they usually sell out by noon! Also within walking distance is the Lumberjack Cafe, a popular spot for breakfast and lunch. Within a half mile is the Convention Center, home of Oktoberfest and live music on weekends, as well as the Big Bear Snow Play sledding hill.

Hello travelers! We are hosting two great cabins in Big Bear, CA. See below! Also follow along on IG @treehauschalet.

Our first cabin, Treehaus Chalet, located in Big Bear Lake, CA is a reflection of our favorite things - mid-century architecture, mountain views, and decor inspired by our travels. We bought our chalet in late '09. It was a foreclosure that needed some love. So we fixed it up and have been sharing it with wonderful folks for a decade! Along the way, we discovered a love for mountain living and for hosting.

Nine years after the first, we bought our second cabin, Stōkhaus! Because we love vintage things and the memories they evoke, we created a nostalgic space preserving the original character while making strategic upgrades, infusing lots of fun vibes of a simpler time!

We visit our chalets frequently and are constantly making improvements. We are proud to have earned AirBnB Superhost status for 29 quarters, and we look forward to hosting you!
