Our updated vacation home is perched on a hillside with breathtaking mountain views! The home is ideal for two couples or a small family who are looking for a peaceful getaway at a stylish chalet with all the modern conveniences.
PLEASE NOTE: Narrow uphill driveway not ideal for full size/oversize vehicles. 4wd recommended in winter conditions.
Our renovated midcentury cabin is nestled between trees with extraordinary unobstructed PANORAMIC views of the mountains and ski slopes! Bright and open floor plan makes it easy for everyone to be together, and large windows and open beam vaulted ceilings bring nature indoors. Natural stone wood-burning fireplace will be a focal point for your gathering. Throw a log on the fire, stare out the window at the incredible views, and enjoy eachother's company. At night, star gazing from the deck will take you away. Enjoy cooking in the modern kitchen with stainless appliances or do some grilling on the deck while breathing in the fresh mountain air! A perfect and cozy getaway without having to sacrifice modern conveniences.
Features: Flatscreen HDTV with smart Blu-ray player accessing online content such as Youtube, Pandora, and your accounts with Netflix, Hulu, etc. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook up a storm. Linens and towels are provided. Other features include mountain views from all rooms, deck with charcoal BBQ grill/smoker, wood burning fireplace, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher, wireless high speed internet, DVD & VHS in one bedroom, speakers for your ipod/computer in living room, jacuzzi bathtub, board games, and foosball table.
Bedrooms are downstairs, where they stay surprisingly toasty and warm due to central heating. Bedroom 1 has a plush queen mattress and a log frame bed. Bedroom 2 also has a queen log bed, and an additional twin roll-away bed stored in the closet. Upstairs there is a sectional sofa that could easily sleep 2 more people. One bathroom with tub is upstairs next to the living room, and one jack & jill bathroom is downstairs with shower and is shared between the two bedrooms.
Your well-behaved and house-trained pooch is welcome. The front deck is a great perch for Fido to survey the neighborhood and watch the birds and squirrels. But be advised the yard is not fenced.
The uphill driveway can park 3 cars in tandem. At 108" wide between wall and railing, it is difficult for full size trucks and SUVs to maneuver and unload. 4wd recommended during winter conditions and low clearance vehicles not recommended due to steep approach from street. Ask if you're unsure if your car will be suitable.
Guests will have full access to the entire home and its contents.
Interaction with Guests
This home is rented and managed by-owner, not by a rental agency listing hundreds of cabins. This means that you will have direct 24/7 access to the homeowner via email or phone during your stay; however, local concierge services cannot be offered. We will make every attempt to address any issues and concerns you have and can hire onsite services as necessary, but cannot offer alternative accommodations.
Located in the Moonridge neighborhood, guests will love the peace and quiet, mountain and treetop views, birdwatching, moonrises, and stargazing.
The Treehaus Chalet is close to it all and easy to find. Just a short drive or walk to Bear Mountain shuttle (approx 1/2 mile away), 1 mile drive to the Bear Mtn parking lot, minutes from grocery stores, and within a few miles of Snow Summit and the quaint Village. It's easiest to get around by car, but Big Bear does offer MARTA bus and weekend trolley service, with nearest stops along Moonridge Dr.

We loved our stay! Great house, views and location. Sara was so responsive and helpful! Would come again.
The cabin was beautiful inside and out and had more than enough things to entertain our family at night from their awesome movie library and their board game selection. We had a blast having a tournament on the foosball table and enjoyed a nice cup of coffee in the morning sitting out on the balcony taking in the view. We were warned beforehand of the driveway but had little to no issues getting up it since we were fortunate to go when the roads were not icy. All in all we would most likely come back and stay here again. :)
Sara and Eric's treehouse chalet provided us with the best weekend getaway for my first visit to Big Bear. The chalet was perfectly sized for me and my boyfriend and Tank the dog. We had everything we needed to kick back, cook meals at home in the modern and clean kitchen and warm up next to the fire. Of course the mountain view is stunning and I looked forward to taking in the view with my morning coffee. Sara is a great and attentive host, leaving notes and instructions and checking in via email to make sure everything was going well. As noted, the driveway is tricky, narrow and steep, but I was well- informed and got the hang of it. I would highly recommend the chalet to anyone and look forward to booking again! Thanks Sara and Eric for a much needed relaxing weekend!
We had a terrific stay at the Treehaus Chalet, which is easily one of the best cabins we're rented over more than a decade of coming to Big Bear. It has a cool aesthetic with amazing views of the slopes, and is not stuffy and dingy like so many other rentals of this size. Sara was extremely communicative and responsive to inquiries, even going so far as trying to help me figure out an alternative when she could not offer a late check out. We really enjoyed our getaway and hope to return soon.
Staying in this cabin felt like staying over with family, minus the family. It was comfortable, cozy and convenient. I loved every part of it. The view was exactly what I expected and more. I couldn't have asked for a better cabin to stay at with my friends for the weekend. And communicating with Sara our host was so easy and convenient, she made the stay even more welcomed. We'll definitely come back next year.
The place was nice and we had a ton of fun. The view of the mountain was the best. The place was smaller than the pictures make it look but it was still big enough for us. We would definitely stay there again.
We work as directors in the architecture and advertising industries in Los Angeles, but we call Long Beach home. Since our professional lives can get hectic, we enjoy peaceful getaways with our dog and seek out the road less traveled. If we aren't camping in the solitude of the backcountry, then we enjoy staying at private home rentals during our travels to get a more local experience that a hotel can't offer. We respect the properties we rent as we hope others would respect our own. Our enthusiasm for art/design/travel/nature is reflected in our mountain retreat in Big Bear Lake, CA, which we happily offer for your next getaway.
