About Shelly Smith

My name is Shelly, I'm a native of Utah, and a Realtor in Orange County, CA. I moved to Southern California almost 23 years ago. About three years after that I discovered Big Bear. Its always been a dream of mine to own property in the area and now with a smile, I can say I do :-)

Shelly Smith purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Shelly Smith chose Big Bear Lake

I fell in love with Big Bear on a vacation more than 20 years ago. I knew right away I wanted to have a place to call my own out here and now I have a few in Big Bear. I love the area by the lake, its quiet but still close to everything the city has to offer. I hope you get the chance to visit and you find it as enchanting as I do.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet Days, Days filled with long walks and relaxation with scenic views...

Than there are the days where we go boating or snowskiing depending on the weather.

Its simply a place that has to be on everyones bucketlist

Amazing Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Cozy Cottage for a week to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. When we got there our cabin was ready for us. It's a very pleasant and quite area. We want to thank Shelly for sharing your cabin with us. We had a blast and it was perfect for us!! Thank you

Perfect little cottage for our trip

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a couple of days of skiing. It was great for our family of 4 (2 kids 9 and 13). It had everything we needed. Easy to get to, close to the ski area, little extras like snacks and bottled water were a nice touch.

Great location, cute cabin, very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a great choice for a stay in Big Bear. Shelly is very responsive to any questions and issues, the cabin is impeccable and very cute, and the location is great. It's a 2-min walk to the shore of the lake and the cabin is surrounded by towering trees. It's very peaceful.

2nd stay at the Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was our 2nd stay in the Cozy Cottage. As before, the cabin was inviting, warm and perfect size for 2 adults, 1 child and 2 smaller dogs. Great location with dog park just few minutes away. Not sure if the bed in the "master" bedroom was changed since the last time, but my husband and I could barely fit (I'm 5'8 and he is 6'3) and although the bed was comfortable it was super bouncy. Otherwise, Shelly was super responsive and great to work with. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: same bed as always was there... perhaps its the foot-board that changed the perception. i'll look to putting a queen in that room. thanks for the feedback

How about some great Beer and Food at the Annual Big Bear Oktoberfest or maybe an afternoon on the slopes skiing and then a walk down the Village for all the Christmas Lights/Shopping. No matter the time of year something is happening in Big Bear.
