Welcome to “The Bird's Nest!" Located in the neighborhood known as Lower Moonridge, this plush little cottage is conveniently situated between both ski resorts, making it less than a mile to either Bear Mountain or Snow Summit. Big Bear Lake is a four-season resort to be enjoyed year-round. The lake, golf course, zoo, shopping and dining are just minutes away.
We just purchased this 1940’s cottage from furniture maker/designer, Celia Becker, who completed the cottage's total renovation in January 2013. When we bought the cottage, Celia left everything behind, including all the hand-forged wrought iron furniture she designed and manufactured herself. The rustic-luxe decor features Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn furnishings and accessories. The master bedroom has a magnificent queen-size, four-poster-bed dressed in 600 thread-count sheets and duvet cover. Goose-down comforters and numerous down pillows are provided for your ultimate sleeping comfort.
The gourmet galley kitchen houses everything one could need including a dishwasher, gas range, under-counter refrigerator, microwave, blender, crock pot and toaster plus a Cuisinart K-Cup coffee maker with complimentary gourmet coffee, tea, cider and hot cocoa. High-end electronics including two LCD-HD flat screen TV’s, a Blu-ray Disk Player, IHome docking station with music speakers, high speed wireless internet and cable TV with an array of movie channels. You will find yourself lounging in the comfortable living room under a cozy faux-fur throw, enjoying the gas-burning fireplace with a complimentary glass of wine in hand. The well-appointed bathroom featuring a rain shower head with eight body-jets will soothe ski-weary muscles.
A second room includes a pull-out Daybed/Couch to be enjoyed by day, which then converts into a Twin Bed by night, accommodating 2 additional guests. The cottage is ideally suited for one couple, or for a couple with a small child. Given its limited size this cottage can be likened to that of a Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel.
The Bird's Nest is perfect for couples who are looking for romantic getaway in style. It is not recommended for those who are seeking a more run-down mountain cabin retreat.
Bring the one you love to the Bird's Nest and make beautiful memories.
NOTE: We require that you be at least 25 years of age to rent the cottage.+ More
