Overview

About the property

Two Homes Right On The Lake. Sure To Leave You With Fond Memories :)

Location:

Blue Moon Lake Lodge is located across the lake from busy Big Bear City in a small town known as Fawnskin. If you want to relax, enjoy the most amazing views, get away from traffic and enjoy “full sun” then Fawnskin is your perfect choice!

This is a true lakefront house with over 180 degree views of the ski slopes to the dam. “Truly one of the best views on the entire lake”. Boat dock is available from May into November (Newly built in 2016) but stored offsite for the winter. The lake literally hits the border of our grass lawn when full but due to drought, it’s down a bit. We keep the lakefront weeds trimmed and clear so you have an uninterrupted view. Plenty of grass and lake front to play on.

Details:

An extensive 4 month remodel of both homes completed in 2016 and refreshed in October of 2017 with new deck paint, new stain and looking like new once again! New peacock slate throughout, certain rooms with distressed hardwood, newer model outdoor spa, brand new kitchen with custom cabinets, huge copper sink, stainless appliances and beautiful granite with glass backsplash accents. We didn’t stop there, custom made bathroom vanities, copper bathroom sinks, walk in slate showers, custom antler light, all new lighting throughout, custom art / decorations, new toilets…you name it! We're constantly updating and keeping it fresh so you're sure to be pleased :)

Both the main house and the guest cabin are fully equipped with everything you would expect in your own home. Keurig coffee machines, blender, toasters, microwaves and even a waffle iron in the main house. More dishes then you will ever need and all the pots, pans or silverware you could ask for. Crystal wine glasses, a huge main deck and two others on small cabin. Bear in mind that this is our personal home as well so you’ll find most of the condiments and perhaps some other groceries that you may help yourself too (no clothing so closet and drawers are free for you to use). We also have a large capacity washer and dryer with soap incase you want to throw a load in.

The guest house is fully functional as a standalone unit with partial lake view, 2 small fridges, wall heater, full kitchen and shower as well as two flatscreen TV’s and internet. We love this back house…typically where we stay as its so cozy and truly cabin feeling :) And YES, both homes are included in your rental.

Don't be mislead by other homes, we update the pictures often and ALWAYS improving. Beyond the remodel in 2016 and 2017 refresh, we built a custom new boat dock in 2016, we added a console video game system to the game room, we added new outdoor lounges in spring - 2017 with a hammock bed under the deck. Complete remodel of the exterior completed in Nov 2016 which includes new cement siding, a beautiful rock 4' base on both homes, new cedar log front AND all new windows (16 total!!). Oh yeah...did we mention a brand new redwood deck built from scratch in 2017? Place is sure to leave you breathless!! So gorgeous :)

Entertainment:

Besides all the fun things to do in Big Bear (just across the lake on Stanfield Cutoff and only 10 minutes away with one traffic light), our home has plenty of things to keep you smiling…

The lower game room is equipped with a full slate pool table, foosball, a classic arcade game setup with tons of glass video games, an additional fridge in the custom made bar, board games and tons of options to watch on one of the 5 flatscreen TV’s throughout the two homes (65” in living room with a sound bar). Fast wireless Internet, Direct TV with 175 channels, Netflix on all TV’s and you have access to the owners I-Tunes account where you can watch one of their 160+ purchased movies or rent your own (you will be billed post visit if you buy or rent movies other then what's supplied for free so please be mindful). We also have paid for "TV Shows" in the iTunes account so check those out as well.

Included in your stay is firewood (under the deck) to enjoy in our custom rock fireplace. Just turn the gas on, throw a log or two in and you're set! You will have a bowl/rack full of Keurig cups (for long stays, bring more please), Sparkletts 5 gallon coolers/heaters (in both homes) so you have all the water you need or make tea on the fly. (No need to bring up bottled water). Bathrooms are stocked with TP, shampoo, conditioner, soap and plenty of nice towels.

Most of the rentals in Big Bear are managed by large companies that use thin towels, uncomfortable bedding and questionable pillows so they can switch them out quickly for the next rental, not ours… Only high thread count sheets, new beautiful bedding and all the trimmings ☺

We take pride in our home and as such we make sure the cleaning staff is well compensated. As such, you can expect a beautiful clean home to relax with your friends and family in!

3 night minimum Thanksgiving, Christmas, NewYears, July 4th and Labor Day. Speaking of July 4th...no better view of the fireworks then what you'll see here.

Update: New dock is in the lake...water level is still low but new dock is up and running. It has a large slip to hold up to a 24' boat or you can end tie a pontoon boat. Built it with a 30' x 8' outer platform so you can run and jump in the lake. Opted for a Trex deck so no need to worry about splinters. Also added a built in bench so you can enjoy the view and relax.

Accommodation Breakdown:

Downstairs bedroom 1: Queen, twin, foldout mini sofa: 3 - 3.5 people

Downstairs bedroom 2: 2 sets of double bunk beds: 4 people

Upstairs master bedroom: 2 people (CA King Mattress)

Guest House: 2 people (CA King Mattress) and very comfy couch to sleep on (quite long)

Game Room fold out couch: 2 Person

**Keep getting questions on how far to the slopes. May be faster then you think as there are no traffic lights on this side and all you have to do is cut over on stanfield cutoff and take a right. Maybe 10-15 minutes and beauty is…no traffic backing up at this direction whereas you could wait for 45-60 minutes if coming from Big Bear to the slopes.

**Added $50 pet fee that goes direct to cleaning crew as they have had to clear all hair, extra cleaning and wash comforters more often. If you bring a pet, you must pay the additional surcharge. Sorry!

About Adam T Tromp

Born in Australia but grew up in South Africa, Costa Rica, Belgium, Holland and came to the USA when I was a teenager. Set up a life for myself on the Westside and fell in love with Big Bear many years ago. Tried to buy this home for nearly 7 years before the seller finally gave in and sold it to me :)

My family and I love our lakefront home and I try to get up there as much as possible. I completed a light remodel on it when I first purchased it 6 years ago but just wrapped up a VERY extensive one only just now (mid Nov, 2015). I styled with a Restoration Hardware style in mind but to include all my favorite materials such as peacock slate, dark cabinets, copper fixtures and stainless. Found a very cool barn door for master bedroom that I had to find a home for to add character.

I spend my time traveling whenever possible, running a few small personal businesses and when time permits, I take a 2 hour drive to Fawnskin, prop my feet up on the railing off the deck and watch the sun come up with a large cup of coffee.

You're going to love our home and can't wait to hear how great it went so you can come back again!

Adam T Tromp purchased this house in 2010

Why Adam T Tromp chose Fawnskin

The views are what sold me, I'm sure they will do the same for you. Many houses are set back so you can only see a sliver of the lake unless at the property line. This one has the main house right up against the property line so you have an amazing view in all directions from the deck. Or, you can sit in the spa and watch it snow as it sits under the covered patio

One of my favorite features… Have the In-Laws with you or perhaps friends with a baby. Let them stay in the guest house and you can keep the fun going without keeping them awake. It's close enough that your baby monitor is sure to reach and you can all hang out together by the large rock fireplace.

You won't find a more tidy, well equipped cabin. No plastic cups, paper plates or ripped up furniture…only the best to make sure you're memories are great and untainted, if you are used to the finer things in life, you will love our homes!

What makes this house unique

Very few homes on this side of the lake so exceptionally quiet. Not a single traffic light either so rare that North Shore Dr backs up unlike the other side. Just a very relaxing, beautiful spot that your sure to enjoy. Make sure to call Red Barron Pizza, they are one of the few to deliver, good friends and great food...Their meatball sandwiches are worth the wait!

Wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 10 stayed at the gorgeous home for a weekend. This house is stocked with everything you’d need for a vacation.

We especially loved the views and being able to walk right down to the water.

Adam (owner) was a pleasure to work with.

I look forward to renting from them again.

I could not have asked for a better home to stay in. Cozy, beautiful, and just absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Adam is truly one of the best hosts ever! From the beginning it was extremely easy to communicate with him. The house itself is STUNNING, extremely cozy, and overall just beautiful. My big bear trip truly would not have been the same if I had stayed elsewhere. By far one of the best homes I’ve had the pleasure of staying at.

Absolutely Amazing!

We had a group for New Year’s Eve stay at this amazing house! We had an absolute blast. The house was so wonderful and right over the lake. The deck was incredible to hang out on! The owners are so helpful and very responsive. They made the stay even better! We would love to return again next year!

Fabulous time!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Big Bear with a bunch of close friends and stayed at Adam's. We had a fabulous time, it was very comfortable and it had all the amenities we needed (boat dock, spa, etc.). Adam was very responsive and a pleasure to interact with! I hope to come back next year!
