About this listing
I've had such good experiences with AirBNB that I decided to open my new house to the community. I live here during the week, so it is generally available Thursday through Sunday.
The neighborhood is Big Bear Lake Central, which is probably the most desirable because of its proximity to The Village, the lake, and the slopes. My neighborhood is quiet and I have wonderful neighbors who are usually up here on the weekends.
The house is nice because it is new. Many of the cabins up here were built in the 1940s, but mine was built in 1984. Because of this, everything works the way it is supposed to. Expect hot water, working light switches, and fast internet.
One bedroom has a queen-sized bed and the other has two full-sized beds in a bunk configuration. The place can comfortably sleep 6 or 7, but city regulations limit me to 4 adults. There is room for two cars in the driveway, but it may be tight if my neighbors are home.
Here are some of the amenities:
New furniture and appliances
Open kitchen with breakfast bar
Large front deck
Large rear deck
Lots of windows and a skylight
2 TVs with VCRs (no cable, but I have a decent VHS collection)
Fully-loaded kitchen (fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, blender, hot water dispenser)
Quick walk to lake
Very quick drive to slopes
Quiet neighborhood, surrounded by pine trees
Garbage has to be taken out and dumped at the Waste Management Center on Garstin Dr. All of us have to do it up here, there is no trash service :-(
No smoking and no pets.
Other than that, please respect my home and have a great stay :-).

Place was just as described... Close to the Village and Snow Summit... Pleasant surprise was that the bunk beds are queen size. Thanks Skot!!
This was our first experience ever doing a vacation rental. We heard great things about Airbnb and decided to give it a try.
This cabin was a comfortable place for my family of 4! The location was about 1.5 miles away from the eateries and shops at The Village. The Alpine Slide area is very close to the cabin. The place was well stocked and even had board games. (There was a Nintendo game but didn’t want to tell the kids!) Our only concern was it was a bit dusty (bathtub and ceiling area near upper bunk had some spider webs with dead spiders) and bedding wasn’t made for the upper bunk – I’m not sure if my kids (ages 6, 11) were supposed to share the bottom bunk together. All in all, it worked out well. For the price and location, it was a good space for us.
This place was great! I will definitely be back! Skot was great with his communication before arriving and it was honestly the easiest in and out process ever. The cabin is very spacious, clean and inviting. The weather was warm, so instead of snowboarding on icy slopes, we decided to ride our bikes into the Village and explore a few restaurants/bars. The location is perfect! It was a about a 5 minute bike ride to the Village while a short walk to the lake. The neighborhood is very quiet and calming. We'll definitely be back to this place! Thanks again, Skot!
Skot's place was great. We went up to Big Bear for the weekend to get out of the city and get some fresh air. His place was exactly what we needed - cozy but not too crowded, plenty of sleeping space, and lots of games! It is very centrally located and we walked to the village get coffee both mornings (a little far but definitely walkable). I would definitely recommend Skot's to anyone!
My family and I had a great stay at Skot's cabin!
Skot was very accommodating and his cabin was perfect for my group. We were 3 adults and one child and the size of the cabin was perfect, but has room for a couple more. We had everything we needed in the kitchen to cook our own meals and had plenty of space to eat. As Skot mentions in his listing, this is a very quiet neighborhood. I suggest to arrive before sundown as it might be a little harder to find the cabin in the dark.
It was great loved it! Very nice clean and love the Super Nintendo with lots of good games.
