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.

Great amenities & activities within walking distance.

We love to have family come visit us here.

  • 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.

Loved This Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Apple Jacks Cabin was perfect for our family! 4 adults and one 5 year old. More than enough room for each of us to have our own beds. The Cabin was super cute and exactally what we wanted to stay in for that perfect "snowy winter in the mountains" feel. Like you stepped into a hallmark movie. Super close to bear mountain! Also a huge plus. The jacuzzi was hot and lovely and the kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast and dinner. We had such a great time. We almost didn't make the trip due to our son being hospitalized for the flu and the owners were more than accommodating. Thankfully we didn't have to reschedule and got to enjoy everything big bear has to offer. Thanks again to the owners of Apple Jacks! You guys have a great place!

Our stay in this sweet cabin was beyond our expectations, clean ,warm, cozy

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect, after our jacuzzi, we slipped into the soft warm robes provided, and sat in the warm sun on the deck sipped wine and watched the chipmunks and blue jays come get the peanuts we offered. Everything we could need was available for us in the cabin.We will definately return

Amazing Mountain Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cabin! We truly enjoyed our weekend away from LA - and our time at this cozy cabin! We were warmly welcomed, showed around and felt right at home. The hot tub was excellent, the gated porch was perfect for the dog and was stocked with everything you could need! We would certainly come back again! Thanks!

Adorable mountain hide-away with all the extras

  • 5 of 5

It was so hard to see our time at the Apple Jack cabin come to an end, because it was the perfect place to enjoy a mountain getaway. Things we loved:

- Great location near the village (shops &restaurants galore), hiking trails, lake, golf, etc

- Easy check-in with key lock-box

- So many little extras to make you feel welcome (soft robes for the hot tub, popcorn & chips for movie night, plenty of towels, great selection of kitchen essentials for cooking, fast WiFi, firewood & firestarter)

- Spacious (One caveat - it may feel tight if you have a large group. It sleeps at least 6, but there is only 1 bathroom)

- Easy parking, quiet neighborhood

- Cutely decorated with a mountain/cabin theme

- Clean, pre-heated hot tub

- Great value...very competitively priced when compared to similar properties

In general, the cabin had a very welcoming, cozy feel to it. We loved our time there and will definitely be back!
