CHARMING COZY CABIN in Big Bear City, 90mins from Los Angeles

We bought our cozy space for quiet time away from LA City. It has been good to us and we would love to share it with you and your family. After some remodeling we think it has the perfect blend of the old and new. It offers a bright, airy open layout and is located only minutes from Big Bear Lake. There are beds for 4 and a couch that sleeps 2 more. Fully furnished, you will have everything you need from wifi to pots and pans. It's a cultural gem with art in every room! If you're a family, no need to worry about the kids while they play outside, the back yard is fully fenced! Relax on the private master bedroom balcony with your assignments and enjoy a cup of tea, coffee, or glass of wine... At night, the star-gazing is pretty spectacular. We love to hike in the area, up at God's eye and down below at the Sierra Native site... all of which we can share with you...

About Me
Welcome. My name is Arun. Born in India, raised in England, I crisscrossed the US from NY to California. My family and I have lived in Los Angeles for 22 years. We love our community. This is where we taught our kids to ride bikes, swim, and learn. We work in the film and TV industry currently. Arun is a former Adjunct Professor in the Media Arts and Culture(MAC) department at Occidental College, Los Angeles. A Producing Instructor working with Senior Students on their Senior Comps film. Willie hails from South Carolina. We have two adult children, no pets. The property is quiet, so perfect for a quiet person, and we have a strict no smoking, drugs policy. We reside upstairs in the main house... though we are a busy family who enjoy traveling, hosting dinners for friends and family, we are always close by for any questions. Our focus is always creating a positive environment, and helping as many of our human subjects that we meet! Arun

I rented this apartment for a month a half while working in Pasadena. It was an exceptional stay!

The apartment was immaculately clean, airy, and very, very quiet. Enough room for 2 people to live comfortably. My husband worked from home during our entire stay and he never felt cramped. The kitchen is fantastic, has everything you need to cook (only thing missing is oven, however there is a full gas stovetop and a large slow-cooker for meals). Lots of closet space and the ensuite washer and dryer was great.

We really enjoyed the area, too. Lots of great restaurants and a RiteAid right down the block. The view from their balcony was an added bonus.

Arun and her husband were very welcoming and super responsive if I ever had any issues or questions.

I highly recommend this place!
