About Rick Warner

We are 61 and 62 and retired. I own 2 condos in Kihei (Maui), as well as this Mountain Chalet. I have owned and managed vacation rentals for almost 15 years.Ricki is a former IT director, and my wife 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!

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.

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!

Charming Comfortable Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We have been coming to Big Bear for our annual New Year Tradition for the past 9 years, with 4 adults and 3 children. This cabin won Hands down with our group as our best cabin yet! The kids had their own space to play downstairs, plenty of space for everyone. the beds were very comfortable and cozy. We especially liked the cleanliness of the cabin as well as how well equipped the kitchen was as we love to cook during our stay. The location worked perfect for skiing, we did not walk but it was close enough to drive 3min or so. We have kids ranging from 6 to 10 and it was just easier with all their equipment. We will certainly book again next year. Thank you for a wonderful stay, looking forward to next year!

Quiet and welcoming

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Had a good weekend at the cabin. Was close enough to hike to big bear resort, but sadly I was so tired I never ended up snowboarding.

The cabin was very clean, and inviting. My almost 2 year old son loved playing with the pool table rolling the balls back and forth.

Overall it was a great place to stay with multiple people/families and will keep it in mind for our next trip to big bear!

Great cabin, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this house for three months this summer. It is everything and more. It has a very comfortable feel and amazing views. Rick, the owner, was terrific. I wasn't happy with the bar-b-cue and he asked me to shop for one I liked and he paid for it. We had a brand new outdoor stove all summer. The location is very accessible and convenient to everything. We had a great summer!

Car: necessary

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.
