Our Newest Big Bear Luxury Cabin Rental Is Just Steps Away From Bear Mountain Skiing

We just posted Lassen’s Lodge, our newest Big Bear luxury cabin, and wanted our faithful blog followers to get all the details. ¬†This one is so new we haven’t had time to get the professional photography done yet. ¬†But you don’t need Ansel Adams to understand why we’re so excited about the newest member of our Five Star Vacation Rentals family. ¬†Take a look at the best part of this beauty:

That's Bear Mountain in the front yard

This is a view looking out from the front of the house. ¬†As you can see, the road is the only thing that stands between you and the Bear Mountain slopes. If you got any closer, you’d have to build an igloo. ¬†With this amazing cabin you can literally roll out of bed, strap on your skis, and hit the slopes. Well, maybe you should get dressed and eat breakfast first, but you get the idea. ¬†We’re anticipating that this one will be booked solid for the entire ski season, so we’re encouraging all our die-hard skiers to grab open slots while they’re available. ¬† We’re prepared to secure your ski vacation for anytime through next spring, so be sure to work out your plans and call us right away.

In addition to the great location, we’ve made sure the cabin will meet the level of comfort and luxury you expect from a Five Star Vacation Rental in Big Bear. ¬†The cabin has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and enough beds to sleep 12 with a maximum occupancy of 14. ¬†The living room has custom furniture with a rock carved fireplace. ¬†You may end up fighting over who gets to prepare dinner with the fully equipped kitchen that features beautiful granite countertops. ¬†And don’t worry about the kids. ¬†You can be sure they’ll be kept plenty busy with all the games we’ve packed in. ¬†It’s an impressive list: ¬†We have a Foosball table, a pinball machine, chess table, and plenty of other board games.

This Big Bear vacation rental is a perfect destination for all our sports fans too. ¬†You’ll surely want to take a break from the slopes to watch the game on the huge 60 inch plasma TV with its surround sound system. ¬† You’ll love the large dining room table for setting up snacks and pizza boxes to fuel your enjoyment of the game.

There’s also a gas barbecue on the deck and a hot tub with room for 6. ¬†Just imagine that amazing moment when you’re up to your neck in the warm water of the hot tub, and the air is filled with the sweet aroma of the steaks on the barbecue. It’s making our mouths water just thinking about it. ¬†After the first day, it will seem like it’s been months since you were in the city rushing off to work or spending all day on your cell phone.

And once the quiet of the evening comes and the kids are finally drifting off to sleep, you can retire to the wonderful master suite. ¬†It has a king size bed and is a great retreat for mom and dad. ¬†It has a fireplace and a plasma TV, so you can enjoy some time alone. ¬† We’re certain that the only regret you’ll have about your stay at Lassen’s Lodge is that you didn’t stay longer.

We’re accepting reservations immediately, so give us a call at 310-780-3411. ¬†You can view more photos and pricing on this page. We also have Five Star Vacation Rentals available¬†in¬†Park City,Palm Springs/La Quinta,¬†Southern California Beaches,¬†Mammoth Mountain, and¬†Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. ¬†Each of our destinations offers a wealth of activities for your entire family.
