Beautiful & Convenient 1960s Cabin w/ Wood Stove, near Skiing & Lake Attractions

Pinewood Haus is a modified A-frame, named the Li’l Cabin in the Woods during the infancy of Big Bear’s evolution to a ski town. Built in 1968, this home remains an architectural icon of 1960s Big Bear and a peaceful, all-seasons mountain retreat for friends and family alike.

Ideally located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the desirable Fox Farm area, within minutes of Big Bear’s ski resorts and village, Pinewood Haus is central to all of Big Bear’s attractions and conveniences while offering the blissful feeling of seclusion. Easy access to local routes helps you avoid peak season traffic.

Pinewood Haus feels warm and charming, bringing you back to days gone by. But don’t let the nostalgia fool you - this well-maintained cabin is cute, comfortable, and full of modern conveniences. Enjoy high ceilings, plentiful natural light throughout, a corner fireplace to set the cozy mountain mood, and central heating to keep you thoroughly toasty. Mountain breezes whispering through the pines cool the house in summertime. Settle into that warm cabin feeling by streaming your favorite shows on the Smart TV or utilizing the complimentary WiFi. Other accommodations include a handy washer/dryer located off the hallway from the vintage kitchen, which is fully appointed with appliances, pots, pans, utensils, coffee makers (drip and French press), a kettle, and a grinder. The private bedroom on the main level features a queen-size bed, while the open and airy loft offers two full beds. The retro living room has full-size sleeper sofa. The bathroom is simple and features a large walk-in shower.

Outside, commune with nature by spending time on the quaint wood decks. The front deck faces the quiet neighboring homes, with flat easy access off the cul-de-sac (there are no arduous driveways to get to Pinewood Haus - a bonus in the winter months). The back faces the pines in the 12,600-square-foot open lot.

What's nearby:
This truly unique cabin sits near a wide variety of year-round mountain activities. During the winter months, snow lovers will be in paradise, as thrilling ski runs await at Snow Summit Ski Resort and Bear Mountain Ski Resort, both of which are within three miles of your front door. For a little bit of fun for the kiddos, make your way to Big Bear Snow Play and spend an afternoon tubing or sledding less than a mile from home base. Come summer, Big Bear Lake is perfect for boating, swimming, and fishing your days away. Plus, the lake is surrounded by hiking and biking trails offering scenic views galore! And last but certainly not least, the Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain is a hub for year-round amusement for all ages.
