About the property

A rustic lodge setting with the comfortable feeling of your own home, Running Bear welcomes you the moment you walk through the door.

This luxury home is located in a quiet court, nestled in the pines, in one of Big Bear’s most sought after neighborhoods. Even better, it’s only minutes away from Snow Summit Resort.

A beautifully landscaped yard surrounds the house with its natural wood siding and brick columns adding to the mountain cabin feel on a much higher level. The kids will enjoy escaping into the tree house located in the fenced backyard!

Able to sleep up to thirteen, this five bedroom, two and a half bathroom home with native yet western woodsy decor, accommodates a large family with all needed amenities. Wooden walls, Aztec patterns and fur rugs add warmth and coziness to a very spacious area.

A fully equipped kitchen offers a large refrigerator paneled with pine, matching the much desired cabinet and counter space, along with a center island to prepare meals for several people.

The family room circles a rock wood burning fireplace where you can snuggle up, share stories or just relax and watch TV.

Upstairs you can take in the amazing views while enjoying a game of bumper pool/poker table and a game of pool on a regular seven foot pool table, or relax at your own bar and enjoy a movie on the flat screen.

The master bedroom speaks for itself when you enter the room. With a fireplace, his and her restrooms, double sided entry, glass shower and a “claw footed” tub. This room feels like a small cabin on it’s own, on the opposite side of the home from the other bedrooms to ensure privacy.

Enjoy the mountains surroundings and beauty from the large deck, fenced backyard or while cooking on the natural gas barbeque. Tucked in the corner, among the trees, a hot tub offers tranquility under the stars, possibly catching a glimpse of a Running Bear!

Features: Outdoor Hot Tub, Cable TV, Flat Screen TVs, DVD Player, Internet, Pool Table, 2 Family Areas, Flat Fenced Yard, Dishwasher, Fully Stocked Kitchen, Linens and Towels Provided, Cathedral Ceilings, Natural Gas Barbeque, Washer, Dryer

Note: Tenant must supply their own propane tank for the outdoor heater at their own cost.

Guestbook comments from the manager

So glad you got my message. The Running Bear home was so perfect for

our family. I really appreciated you working with me and changing at

the last minute. We spent a lot of time in the house because it was

an "overcast" kind of cloudy, rainy week! We were very pleased with

the rooms and comfort of the home. We enjoyed the patio and ate our

meals around the big round table. The Jacuzzi was a real treat and

helped us relax even more. The kitchen had nice appliances and was

very convenient for a couple of cooks! Thanks so much for your

kindness and if we ever go to Big Bear again, I will call and ask for

you!!!! So much appreciate what you did!

Great house for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Four families stayed at Running Bear for a short ski weekend and the house was perfect. The rooms were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed and the kids loved the treehouse.

Great family fun

Awesome house. High end, tons of space. Beautiful kitchen and patio. Location was great. Quiet, close to everything this is a great rental for a large family or friend get together. We will choose this location again.

Stayed for two nights at Running Bear .

  • 4 of 5

It was not my first choice but since the one i liked was booked. Other rental offers better space and amemities with better price.

Over all, it is okay. The place is relatively clean. Internet is good. The cons: It has three car garrage but there is a small boat trailer occupied parking space. Some of the TVs need to be replaced because of picture quality.

The small bedroom to the right of laundry room has an odor of stagment air which can come from the mattress.

Our 4 families had a wonderful time at this house and in Big Bear. It was well maintained, well stocked, great back yard for kids, safe street with very few others around and simply beautiful. Can't wait to book next year.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this Big Bear Lake home. There are two main living rooms for the children and adults to enjoy. The pool table in the loft was great fun for everyone. As the cook in the house I would say that the kitchen was very well stocked. Although I am glad that I brought my own casserole dishes. The house was very clean and well stocked with towels.

We had a great time in the village and at the alpine slide park. Even though there was plenty to do around the lake the kids still wanted to be back at the house playing. The back yard is huge and beautiful. We enjoyed morning coffee and dinners on the very large back patio. Perfect place for a getaway for all ages.

The perfect home for a large party

  • 5 of 5

We had four families for this trip with 5 children from 10 to 4 years old. They all loved staying at the home and playing in the game room. The fact that the home had two large living spaces allow kids and adult to enjoy the night freely. Furthermore, to add to the fun and convenience, the home is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac but walking distance to snow summit. Our party had so much fun that they complained that the two night we stayed at the home was not enough. If we go back to snow summit next year, I would love to stay here again. The only thing the kids complained about was that the wifi did not work until the night we left but we did not call intentionally to prevent them from playing video game.
