Walk to ski lifts from this charming condo with private hot tub

From serene mountain views to home essentials like WiFi to luxuries like the private hot tub, there's no doubt this Big Bear Lake vacation rental will be the perfect spot for up to eight family members or friends to enjoy a thrilling ski or lake getaway.

With the ski lifts at Bear Mountain Resort a short walk away, winter sports are a must! And when you want to take a break from the slopes, or if you're here during the warm summer months, head across the street to the Alpine Zoo or walk to the Gold Mine Golf Course.

Cozy and comfortable, this lovely condo feels spacious with tall ceilings and warm, painted walls.

Bring along fresh ingredients to whip up home-cooked, budget-friendly meals in the full kitchen. The stainless steel oven and microwave are great for hot meals after a cold day perfecting your snowboard tricks. And along with a refrigerator, there's also a toaster oven, coffeemaker, and dishwasher. The dining table nearby seats eight and makes for a fantastic spot to beat your travel companions in a game of cards.

Flip on the flatscreen TV and flip on the gas fireplace in the living room before you settle into the leather sofa to relax. WiFi, cable, a Blu-ray DVD player, and Netflix streaming are all included for your convenience. Through the back door is a semi-private patio with built-in benches, a gas grill for a delicious steak dinner, a small picnic table, and a steaming hot tub just for you.

The master bedroom upstairs boasts a king-size bed, large windows above a bench seat (a perfect spot to read), a balcony with views of the ski lifts, and an en suite bathroom with a jetted tub and stand-alone shower. A second full bathroom sits on this upper floor, and a half bath is located downstairs, along with a washer and dryer so you can pack light!

Two other bedrooms also are on the upper level, one with a queen-size bed, and the other features two sets of twin bunk beds. With six beds, all eight guests will enjoy a place to sleep each night.

Although Bear Mountain is well-known for its epic ski and snowboarding runs to keep everyone happy during the winter, there's plenty to do here during other seasons as well! Summer brings fun on Big Bear Lake, just three miles away. Boating, fishing, jet skis, and even parasailing are available. The Village (three miles away) offers shops and eateries, and the Bowling Barn and an indoor arcade are close by as well. Magic Mountain houses an alpine slide, a snow tube run, a water slide, mini-golf, and go karts and offers wristbands for endless rides!

There's fun to be had by all when you book this Big Bear vacation rental.

So convenient being right on the slopes of the mountain. Board in an Board out from the backyard! Gas fireplace made it easy to enjoy a nice fire to warm up the house.

Overall this was a very nice property the location is great if you are using the big bear resort for skiing or whatever it may be.love the security of the area and the layout of the house was great. I have no negative things to say about the property as I felt that everything was nice.

We actually went for a spartan race and originally was going to be at big bear, the location switched to Snow Summit, it would have been amazingly close and walking distance if the location had stayed at big bear, but it was still a very easy and simple drive.

This was a good place to stay. The area was secure and we felt safe along with our stuff (it's in a gated area). Nice hot tub too! The place is nice but not so perfect you don't dare bring your kids. If you don't know much about where big bear is located, look it up. You could literally surf in the morning and ski in the afternoon. It's a cool place and not that far from the valley and beaches.

Great location.
Julian N. Mar 2017
Best spot to stay on the mountain. Literally ski in ski out and the apartment was clean and tidy upon arrival. I highly recommend this to any future guests.

Cheers,
Julian

Great spot close to the slopes - a very comfortable stay in a very functional house! Would certainly recommend it!
Kim H. Feb 2017
great family ski in ski out location. The two bunk beds are more suited for kids than adults, but heck, after a day up there you can sleep on anything. The master is very nice.

Rented this spot with several friends for a weekend snowboarding/sking getaway and it was the perfect place....We came in for what became the largest storm in the last five years or so, so it was very difficult getting cars in/ out because are place was up the hill, but this was completely understandable as we had freezing rain, rain and 14 inches of snow in 24 hours...the plowers worked through the night and all the next day and helped us get out. The mountain was rad, but we stayed through monday and they unforunately closed it down due to safety concerns which was dissappointing be cause we just got a foot of snow, but we were able to scoot over to snow summit to finish out the weekend. Best features of this place are the gas fireplace, dryer on site, and hot tub! would absolutely rent again, but earlier check in would be extremely useful! Thank you vacasa.

Everything you want for snowboarding or skiing is right here. Hot tub is perfect. Cozy by the gas fire place with logs so turn it on and stay warm. Garage your car and unload with shelter. 3 bathrooms and 2 showers with one master bedroom, one guest bedroom and one bunk bed room. Stop for lunch at your place with no crowds. Just glide right in off the slope to this place and have lunch or a drink maybe use your own bathroom. Its so convenient!!!!!!!!

Great location!

We enjoyed the peace and quiet of this unit (17). Kitchen stocked nicely. Table big enough for many to sit. Value for weekend use.
Kathryn V. Jan 2016
We LOVED the location of this unit, being able to ski down to the lifts and right back to the unit from the mountain was key. But the furnishings are pretty old and rundown and our biggest complaint was that one of the mattresses on the bunk beds was actually a BOX SPRING. One person ended up sleeping on the floor due to this, which isn't cool when you're paying a fairly high rental price. The kitchen cabinets could be cleaned better, but at least everything in the kitchen worked fine. There should be more detailed instructions about checking into the unit as well as operating the phone/fireplace/etc. We would stay in another unit at this same location, but not this unit again unless they for sure fix the mattress situation.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We apologize for the mix-up with the mattress and box spring; the Property Manager will look into this right away. Housekeeping will take care of the kitchen cabinets so they are spotless!

I found this unit on VRBO and it was the perfect size for 6 people skiing for the weekend. 8 people would be a little tight. It was great having 3 bedrooms, but the bunkbeds are a little small. The master bedroom is great though (expect to hear the snow makers/grooming tractors at night). Booking was easy and the informational email sent provided a lot of valuable items/suggestions.

Alright so the pluses about the unit.. the location is absolutely perfect if you want to ski or snowboard on Bear Mountain. The unit is location in a gated community so it definitely feels safe too. And the slopes are right in the backyard (FYI you need a lift ticket in order to ski down to the bottom of the slopes from the backyard). You are able to walk through the gate and down to the lodge if you need to, its about a 5 minute walk. Parking at Bear Mountain is absolutely crazy so it's nice just to leave the cars at the house. Checking in was a breeze. You have to go by the office for keys, but the office is only about 5 minutes away from the house. The office remains open until you arrive which is really nice if you hit bad Friday afternoon traffic heading up the mountain. The grill, hot tub, and fireplace worked great and definitely made the stay more enjoyable. The fireplace can be a little tricky to light but there are directions in the guest book in the unit. Checking out was easy. You're able to request late checkouts which is nice, just ask at check in for the number to call.

And now for the few downsides.. since it is a rental property, previous tenants may not clean up as required. We arrived to full trash cans in the garage that were left by previous guests. And the place was a little dirty to our standards. The kitchen was dirty, grill wasn't cleaned, and water level seems a little low in the hot tub. Also, there is no street parking so you can only bring 2 cars. And bring some of your own kitchen essentials/toiletries if you don't like the bare minimum.

Overall, our group had a great stay and I'd recommend this place to friends for sure!
