One of the Largest Private Estates in all of Big Bear, this Luxury 9,500 square foot mansion, is situated on almost one acre of “Lake Frontage” land. With over 200 feet of private shoreline, enjoy fishing off of your private dock or cruise on the lake in our 24 foot Pontoon Boat, in the exclusive boulder bay. Its award winning custom design, breathtaking waterfront views, and remote seclusion, separates this property from all the rest.

Hide out from the cold snow with a nice swim in the indoor heated pool or heat up in the hot tub, large sauna or near the fire pit. Start each day in the fitness room overlooking the water. If it’s the summertime, host a barbeque on our 8 seat wet bar, play horseshoes and listen to music in the water’s edge gazebo. The kids will love the game room, while you enjoy a quiet movie or wrap around views from the great room. Watch every NFL, NBA, and MLB game (Sunday Ticket and MLB Package) live in every room, including the pool, gym, spa, and outside gazebo.

We have a brand new 2015, 24 Foot, "Bentley" Pontoon Boat that you may use during your stay from April until October. Please just sign our release of liability and check-out instructions. We do request an additional deposit and nominal fee for cleaning and boat preparation. The use of the boat is optional.

Great House to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year that we used this house and everyone enjoyed it. The house is very spacious and very comfortable especially for our family of 16 people adults and children. The boat is great to have. Every day, we went on the boat. It's a great activity for the whole family, everyone loved it. We even used the boat to get to the area where you rent jet skies. There is a pool table, a poker table and plenty of TVs.

Adequate but dated or broken

  • 3 of 5

The house provides room for a big family but it needs some maintenance. The elevator hasn't worked for months, some of the chairs have broken arms, not all of the kitchen cabinets have doors, the garage door is about to die and the beds are not particularly comfortable. The air conditioning is only on the main floor so while the master bedroom was very cold the rest of the rooms were hot. Our family still had a good time, but for the price I'd expect things to be in better condition.

My family of fourteen enjoyed our visit to this outstanding property with it's fine spaces, indoor swimming pool, good amenities and pontoon boat. Barret, the owner handled our one issue promptly and was a pleasure to work with. The house itself and the grounds are spacious and lovely. We highly recommend this property.

Very nice!

  • 3 of 5

We had a great family & friend vacation. A few things weren't working-the elevator & pool but all still had a good time! We really enjoyed the pontoon boat.

Very nice, but unloved house.

  • 3 of 5

We had 12 family members staying for a week and there was lots of room in this house. We would have absolutely loved our stay if it had not been for a few troublesome issues. One of the main issues was that the elevator was not working. An elevator was one of the main selling points of this 3-level house. My 88 year old mother was restricted to the main floor which lessened everyone's enjoyment. The owner knew the elevator wasn't working long before we arrived. I realize an elevator fix is probably expensive, but the owner offered nothing in return for listing the house with a working elevator only to find out after our arrival it wasn't working. Other issues such as no lightbulbs in light fixtures, broken cabinets, broken chairs, etc., made the stay less enjoyable. The two bedrooms over the garage were so musty we couldn't use them - it literally made a couple family members sick. Fortunately we were able to fit my whole family in the main house.

On the other hand, the house was a fabulous house with lots of room. The boat was fantastic along with great views of the lake and a well-equipped kitchen. An under-cabinet bathroom leak developed on our second day as well as the garbage disposal wasn't working properly. We called the manager and they had someone out to fix those items the next day. The Pool was one of the main highlights for everyone in the family. The sauna and hot tub were also enjoyed by several members of the family.

All-in-all this was a great house but the owner could significantly improve the house by some routine maintenance.

This lovely property was a perfect home for our family of ten adults and six children!

  • 4 of 5

We had two sunny days to enjoy the indoor pool and hot tub, walk the property and watch the TV in the pergola by the lake, then two snowy days to enjoy skiing at nearby Snow Summit and sledding on the property! The house was warm and we loved having a fire in the living room fireplace, playing games and just chatting. There was lots of space for everyone to be together, and also space for a child to take a nap and not be disturbed. There are a few random things that could be updated or repaired, but nothing could prevent us from having a lovely family vacation in Big Bear in this beautiful home. We may try a summer vacation here next time!
