About Dave and Noel Kelsch

This is our family cabin that we would like to share with you. Our children live across the United States and this is our gathering spot for making memories.

Dave and Noel Kelsch purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Dave and Noel Kelsch chose Big Bear Lake

We searched for many years for a place in Big Bear and when we found this spot we knew it was going to meet everyone in our families dreams. Our kids love that there is everything from snow skiing to mountain biking. If you want a real thrill do what we did for our 35th anniversary and ZIP line though the beautiful canopy of pines! WOW something to remember. Love the nights were we sit and play cards by the fire place or jump in the spa!

What makes this cottage unique

Get away from the city in a mater of hours! It is only an hour or 2 from LA and you are transformed to another way of life. The village is filled with friendly people from all walks of life. There is a celebration for every event and some kooky things like people racing outhouses. There is always something new to do and see or you can just sit and read a book! We love it here.

A very nice, cozy cabin conveniently located in Big Bear. Very clean, wonderful owners, quiet and perfect for 4 to 6 people. We enjoyed cooking our dinners there in the very well equipped kitchen. You can't go wrong with this cabin. We will be back....

Wonderful White Christmas

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 from Australia spent a magical few days at David and Noel's Big Bear Cottage over Christmas. On the outside it was like a story book cottage, inside it was warm, cozy and comfortable, with enough room for all of us. My teenage boys especially loved the deliciously warm spa just outside - what a treat to sit in it on a freezing night, surrounded by snow, with the Big Bear stars above us! Our hosts had made sure the spa was turned on and heated for our arrival. Ours was a very last minute booking at an extremely busy time of year when our accommodation in Mammoth fell through. David and Noel could not have been more accommodating in fitting us in at the last minute, and making sure we had everything we needed for a memorable Christmas stay in this beautiful part of the world. We would definitely recommend the cottage to our friends, and I hope we can stay here again in the future. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

Wonderful accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We have visited several times and each time has been a good experience. I strongly recommend this home away from home to friends and would like to stay here in the future. The home is easy to find and near the main road yet far enough away for quiet. The cabin was clean and ready for our stay. The kitchen has everything you need including spices. A wide variety of DVD's are available and TV's in every room. The furnishings and beds are clean and comfortable. The hot tub worked well. A washer and dryer are included as well as a fireplace.
