About Rick Warner

We are 62 and 62 and retired. I own 2 condos in Kihei (Maui), as well as this Mountain Chalet. We have owned and managed vacation rentals for almost 20 years. Rick is a former IT director, and Dori is a former special education teacher. We love to travel. We have 3 grown kids. We are in Egypt on a camel in the picture! We now manage our vacation rentals in Maui and Big Bear Lake, CA, and our other rental properties.

Rick Warner purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Rick Warner chose Big Bear Lake

We bought this lovely property for vacation rentals and personal use. We loved the location and house, the beautiful chalet is on a very pleasant street at a higher elevation (more snow!) and very near Bear Mountain Ski Area. It is close to everything, but also has a feel of quiet and seclusion. It has many pine trees around, and nice alpine views. It's a great place, read the reviews! Very serene and peaceful. Good for larger families and groups of friends.

What makes this chalet unique

Chalet sleeps 11 in 3 bedrooms (and bunk beds in the game room). Ideal for larger or multiple families. Very nice (large) living room for everybody to get together. Great location, near the slopes, zoo, golf course, and a short drive to the lake and village.

Awesome stay at Bear Mountain cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well-stocked property with everything you could possibly need! We've stayed at other places in Big Bear and were constantly running out to the store for random stuff that we needed, but this place was very well-equipped! The kids loved using the sleds right outside the house as well. Rick was amazing, super fast communication and very easy to deal with. Overall a wonderful stay, thanks again!!

This is an awesome cabin. Perfect floor plan for sleeping and gathering!

We had the perfect weekend! Our group of 6 adults and 5 kids were able to sleep comfortably. The open kitchen was awesome for entertaining and the sledding hill was a huge hit with everyone! Would highly recommend this cabin to anyone!

There is national forest hiking that is walking distance from the chalet. Just walk left from the house, go down Primrose, turn right, and keep going up the hill. Ask us for more specific directions, if needed. You can walk to ski from the house, by walking to the ski area Bear Mtn (two - three blocks to the trail to ski down to the lift. We also have a sledding area next to the home. You can walk around the beautiful, nicely treed, scenic street where you are, go to the zoo, golf, ski area, and to a National Park hiking trail. It's just a few blocks up the hill. The lake has many activities, and is just a short drive away.

Other trails are nearby. It is a very pretty area around the home, with many trees, and lots of peace and quiet. Not many cars go by on the street. There are many fun activities that you can do in the area we have listed. There is some activiity information in the chalet, and the local stores have more brochures.
