About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Den w/bed, 1 Bath, large parking area + enclosed wood porch

Enjoy our Refined & Rustic 3 bedroom cabin w/ gated spa deck w/ BBQ, rock fireplace, full kitchen, free wifi, and movie channels. The cabin is within walking distance to the ski lifts (summer- mountain biking & hiking; winter- snowboarding & skiing), zoo, golf course. Near recreational Big Bear Lake for fishing, boating, & jet skiing April-Oct, with restaurants, rentals, shopping centers, movie theaters just down the road, but out of sight of this cute cabin in the trees set back from the road. Convenient fun with a quiet place to rest your head and relax.

Winter is a great time for your family or ski party to discover the Apple Jacks Cabin. Its bright green exterior is a vivid contrast to the snow that covers the wide open spaces that separate Apple Jacks from neighboring cabins. Handsome, rugged log railings circle the Trex deck, and a six-foot wood screen provides additional privacy for the large spa on the back deck. Half-log trim around all the doors and windows complete this picture-perfect cabin. There is lots of space for parking in the front along with a parking spot that is flat with the road making it easy for cars to get in and out when it is snowing.

Set back far from Deer Canyon Road, Apple Jacks will make you feel like you have stepped back 20 years to a more serene Big Bear before it was discovered by Southern California as the perfect alternative to Aspen or Vale. Imagine walking to the ski lifts at Bear Mountain Resort without having to rise at dawn to find a parking space in the resort’s main parking lot. No longer will you have to be herded like cattle in those open flat-bed trucks from distant auxiliary lots. You can also walk to the nearby Moonridge Animal Park to visit the inhabitants of the surrounding San Bernardino National Forest.

Step inside its original diamond-paned front door and you will be in the spacious Apple Jacks great room. It features T&G wood ceilings, supported by large, rugged beams. You’ll also find a large, flat-screen television, with access to numerous cable channels. Two sets of French doors take up one wall of the great room and lead out to the large back deck with its spa, wood picnic table and BBQ.

To the right of the great room is the dining area and the fully-equipped kitchen. Let Mom relax in front of the large, flat-screen TV with a glass of wine while Dad and the older kids prepare dinner. You can even keep one eye on the young ones, who will want to head outdoors whenever they can. The front deck and the vacant lot next door are right outside the kitchen windows.

When it's time for the rest of your family or group to bunk down after an active day, Apple Jacks can officially sleep five adults and three children in its two bedrooms and converted den. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, with a balcony overlooking the deck and spa. There’s also a TV, DVD and CD player tucked behind the sliding doors of the closet. The second bedroom contains two full-size beds with 'picket-fence' headboards that will delight the kids. Downstairs, a former den has been converted to a third sleeping area that holds another full bed.

There's probably some guests who couldn't come up the mountain without a laptop, or have to do some real work to make the trip tax-deductible. Free wireless high-speed Internet access is available throughout the cabin. A special movie channel package has been added for the snow bunnies who prefer the indoors to the slopes. There's also unlimited US & Canada phone access. Three vehicles are authorized to be parked in the large, paved 2 areas in front of the cabin.

The lake is stocked with pink trout, year 'round, that has a mild pleasant taste, like a tender salmon. I prefer it to salmon.

Your family or best friends deserve the best for their ski 'n' snowboarding, or fishing getaway to Big Bear Lake with Apple Jacks -- all polished to perfection -- as your home base.

  • King size beds (1) The California King bed in the master bedroom is HUGE. Extra blankets and pillows can be found in the closet., Double Beds (3) The two double beds in the second bedroom can each hold a couple or two children. The unique 'picket-fence' headboards are a hit with the youngsters. The third full bed is located in the first-floor den. It can sleep an additional two children. If you've been counting, that totals many more guests than the cabin's maximum occupancy states. Here's the reason for that. The City of Big Bear Lake recently changed its policy regarding vacation rental cabins, primarily because some owners were squeezing three and four beds in every bedroom to increase sleeping capacity as well as rates. Now, the maximum ADULT occupancy is set by the total square footage of the cabin. Therefore, Apple Jacks can legally sleep five adults and four children in beds., Sleep Sofa or Futons (1)

Fabulous place to stay in Big Bear!

  • 5 of 5

This is a RAVE review!!! Apple Jack's is a perfect place to stay in the Big Bear area. It is so well located, you can get to any venue you want in minutes! I was there for a ski adventure, but will come back in the summer for hiking, fishing, visiting the zoo, golf, etc. Many venues are within walking distance. It is such a bargain. The cabin itself is really cute---looks just like the pictures, and was so warm and cozy. It is well equipped, the beds are comfortable, and there are plenty of blankets, towels, etc. Having a hot tub soak in the spacious spa after skiing was a highlight. Another unique advantage of Apple Jacks is that it is pet friendly. It was so much fun to be able to take my dog with me on my trip. He absolutely loved Apple Jacks and Big Bear and will get to go again. I can't recommend this Big Bear cabin highly enough--it is a warm, comfortable, clean cabin that you and your family will love. Whatever your interest, skiing, fishing, hiking--perfect location. I know I loved being there and am telling everyone I know.

Nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

Really nice cabin good location, friendly owner. i only stayed 2 days it was very relaxing & quite. I didn't want to leave, Loved the hot tub and fire place. Its right next to the resort if u like to ski. The only thing I would nit pick at would be all the cleanup/laundry rules and disposal of trash if I have to do everything my self, why did I have to pay such a large cleaning fee when I booked the place? Other then that it was a really cute place! I would stay again in the future

Smelled like vinegar. Hair everywhere including the sheets. Carpet and rugs were disgusting especially the living room rug. Broken patio chairs to sit in. Dog poop everywhere. Dog pee on the carpets. No back up towels or linens. Only bathroom is upstairs. Too much to list.not what I expected.

Cozy little cabin

  • 5 of 5

I went with my friends to Big Bear Oktoberfest. It got down to freezing temps at night. This cabin was very comfortable and warm. We all enjoyed our stay very much.

Looking forward to coming back!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of four!!!!

Our little ones can't wait to go back and were sad to leave.

The beds were comfortable and the house was really cute.

For once the house was even better than the pictures!

Walking distance to the golf course and zoo.

Everything else you need is within an easy drive.

The house was clean, kitchen had everything we needed, and both the indoor and outdoor spaces were comfortable. The hot tub was in great condition - seemed new.

I would recommend to friends and we hope to visit twice a year (1x with snow and 1x without for two different experiences).

Great spot in any season!

  • 5 of 5

Apple Jacks Cabin is a great place to get away in the summer! I know most people think of Big Bear as a place to ski, but it is so lovely in the summer and has great hiking and water sports. The cabin itself is in a wonderful location—just minutes from all the shops and restaurants, but in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood that is fun to walk around in. The cabin has a charming décor and all the amenities you could need—the kitchen is well stocked, there is cable TV, the beds are super comfy, and the deck with the Jacuzzi is a great place to hang out and just relax and breath in the mountain air. Highly recommend this cabin for your next vacation during any season, especially if you need to get away from the crowded city life. P.S. While you’re there, stop by Moonridge Coffee just down the street for coffee and treats, and if you really want to pamper yourself, get a treatment at Elevations Day Spa, which is also close by.
