Welcome adventure seekers, and thank you for considering our cabin. Entitled Stairway to Heaven, our cabin lies at the top of a long stairway... but remember the Heaven part! This cabin is in a quiet neighborhood and set against national forest.
Nothing in the backyard, except for National Forest. After a good barbecue, it's into the wilderness to explore.
This 3 story log cabin in Big Bear Lake was built in 2008. With the front of the cabin overlooking the lake, and nothing but National Forest in the back, this space is an ideal retreat for summer relaxation, or winter fun. 10 minute walk to Boulder Bay, and easy access to Castle Rock trail from the backyard. Natural snow sledding area in the backyard, very private. This place is big; Five bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a great room for living/dining, and a foosball/children's area. A full kitchen, and a backyard grill will satisfy your cooking needs. The expansive second floor balcony is great for star gazing, and catching once in a lifetime meteor showers. Come and experience Big Bear as it should be done!
Cable TV/Wifi available.
Off-Season Pricing $400/night
Guests have access to all kitchen utensils, pots, pans, plates etc. There is a washer and dryer available. Towels and linens are of course provided for as well.

Our group absolutely loved this house! The house was very clean, it has a gorgeous view, very private and lots of parking. Michael was very helpful with everything and very prompt to answer our questions! I highly recommend this house and I look forward to booking it again!
Great place to stay loved the view clean and warming home for our visit can wait till next time we will be staying here again
My friends and I loved our stay at Stairway to Heaven. The home was so beautiful and spacious that we barely left it while we were up in Big Bear. Michael was also great to work with and answered all our questions. That said, make sure you bring your own toilet paper and paper towels. There wasn't enough of either so we had to make a trip to the grocery store.
Our group really loved this house! Michael made our experience as seamless as possible by providing a very detailed check-in guide and answering all of our questions. The view was incredible and the hiking trails behind the house provided a fun outdoor excursion. The house was very clean, everything was in great condition, and we did not mind the stairs. Overall a great Big Bear Lake experience!
The house and the view of the lake is excellent. The host provides an informative move-in guide and is quite responsive to our messages. While the stairs are long, we did not mind the exercise. If you so desire, the house also includes a Taiwanese karaoke system, a library of DVDs, a foosball table, and books. As opposed to other commercial rentals this house is used by the owners.
Our family group of 10 had an absolutely wonderful time here. Yes, there are a lot of stairs, but the payoff is a spectacular view, especially from the "backyard." (Tip: It's easier to walk up the driveway and to walk down the stairs.) We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting, literally steps from the lovely Castle Rock Trail. The cabin itself is very comfortable and well appointed. The balcony/deck was the perfect spot for morning coffee, a glass of wine in the evening, or just kicking back with a book. The kids loved the foosball and we even figured out the karaoke machine! Michael was a very responsive host. I hope to have the opportunity to stay here again.
From initial communication, to our stay everything was perfect. Michael was a great host, who was able to quickly answer any answer questions we had leading up to and during our stay. The house was as described, except for one thing....it was more beautiful than the pictures show. Everything about the house was stunning and my family and I are grateful for Michael and his family for sharing it through Airbnb. We highly recommend this place and would love to stay again in our future trips to Big Bear.

Hello fellow AirBnB-ers! My name is Michael and I live in Southern California. I am recently married with no children and am up for pretty much anything. I enjoy being outdoors mostly, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing. Most of all my wife and I love FOOD. We are also pretty frugal travelers, meaning we don't mind public transportation (something unheard of in SoCal). We also love seeing new cities by bike. Its just a really intimate way to explore and be a part of the city you're visiting. I've got two dogs that I will miss dearly when I'm away. Let's see.. and I love photography. Well that is me. I look forward to meeting you hosts and guests out there, Happy Traveling!
