About this listing
newly solar, this gem is a rare beauty-a symphony of nature that is something to behold! overlooking lake and mountains it's hard to believe that you are just minutes from the village and slopes, & just 2 hours drive from LA!
Come experience Big Bear Lake in this beautiful, bright and spacious 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath luxury cabin. This professionally appointed home, with incredible lake and mountain views is impeccably decorated and furnished - an oasis with a wood-burning & gas stone fireplace, 2 large decks (one with the outdoor spa), speedy wireless internet, dish TV - there are 5 large flat screen TVs, and a converted carpeted garage game room that has a pool table, ping pong, darts, flat screen TV and a cabinet full of games (no cars in garage). the garage has no heat, but is insulated and usable, though chilly, in winter. now that we have solar panels we can have a space heater!
climb the stairs and you are immediately greeted with a large, wide open kitchen/dining/living room area with vaulted cathedral ceilings, and magnificent views on all sides. there is an elegant dining area, a living room that offers two comfy couches - one a sofa sleeper; and the second bathroom. Also on this level is the master suite with a king bed and private marble bathroom.
The kitchen is fully equipped with:

The outdoor porch upstairs has a large dining area, and another sitting area - to which we recently added a great new fire table. a cozy addition on a cool night! propane, as needed, for this and the bar-b-q grill is available 1/4 mile away at the market on big bear blvd.
Downstairs there are 2 bedrooms, one has an elegant mahogany 4 poster queen bed, while the other has bunk beds and a twin bed. Also on this level is a full bath, mud room and laundry.
All beds are freshly made with clean white linens and there are fresh bath towels provided for all our guests. This is the perfect ski lodge retreat for large groups or families. the location is a perfect combination of peaceful remoteness with close proximity to all that Big Bear Lake has to offer year round. Two boat marinas, Big Bear Lake Village and the ski slopes are all just minutes away. We welcome good pets since our off the beaten path location is great for them to run:). we are looking forward to sharing our solar powered electricity with our guests!

Other Things to Note
we have a propane grill and propane fire table available for our guests. if the propane gets low there are places right nearby to refill. we do not know how much this is used, so sometimes our guests need to refill as needed. we hope that you can leave as much propane as you found upon arrival. Lakeview Market is 1/4 mile towards the village, and will exchange an empty propane tank for a full one...
there is a trick to getting the burners on the grill lit: only open one burner when lighting, then open the others. this allows enough gas to catch hold of the flame.
As with many homes, our plumbing cannot accommodate even "flushable" baby wipes. Please do not flush anything but toilet tissue.
Please no smoking inside, including the garage. There is a 4 car maximum according to the City of Big Bear Lake. If you have more than 10 in your party, there is a 35$ charge per/night additional person. While the garage/game room is not heated and chilly in the winter, we have lots and lots of blankets & sleeping bags, and have insulated it for extra warmth.
