You have a king bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed in the second, two twin beds in the third bedroom, and a queen murphy bed in living area. Full kitchen. Maximum Occupancy 8.
This property has a range of other unit sizes available -- and they're all listed on Air BnB. Some of the photos above may be of the different-sized units.
Admit it: It’s time to escape to the mountains of San Bernardino. About three hours out of Los Angeles or San Diego, the peaceful sanctuary of Big Bear is the mountainous recharger your batteries need.
You’ll find yourself almost 7,000 feet above sea level in a mecca of sunshine and clear air. This is where mountain bikers glide down fire roads, skiers carve through snow and hikers dip into pure blue water after rambling through mountain meadows. If that’s not enough, there’s four-wheeling, horseback rides, fishing, and boating—nectar for those frayed nerves.
It's the Big Bear Lake battery recharger. You’ll want to experience it again and again.

I rent out my WorldMark timeshare -- 120+ resort locations all over the US, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, and England.
While last-minute short-stay accommodations are sometimes possible, please be smart about your expectations. Keep this helpful hints in mind:
1. Holidays and summer weekends book up months in advance.
2. If it's less than a month before any kind of holiday, concert, or event, it's likely already booked up. Accommodations in Indio and Palms Springs sell out within the HOUR of Coachella tickets going on sale, but it's the same two weekends every year, so plan ahead and you'll get what you want.
3. You can book as far as 13 months out.
4. If you book more than 10 months out, there is a 7-night minimum.
5. If you want to book a Friday or a Saturday, there is a three-night minimum -- unless you are booking within 48 hours of check-in (4pm). Very occasionally I am able to accommodate shorter weekend stays. It doesn't hurt to ask, but please don't be disappointed if I must say no.
I have units that can accommodate as many as eight people. Have more than eight? You can rent more that one unit! The Maximum Occupancy listed on the listing is as true as gravity and cannot be adjusted for any reason because the Fire Marshal said so. Respect the Fire Marshal's wisdom.
Almost all units have a complete kitchen. In addition to full-size appliances, you'll find plates, glasses, silverware, and other kitchen items. All linens, including towels, are included. You have access to all resort amenities -- that means the pool, the hot tub, the gym, free parking, etc.
Sadly, the resorts do not allow pets.
Wifi is $4.95/day or $15.95/stay. This is 100% a resort fee that I have 0% control over.
This is a timeshare. Someone at the resort might (but probably won't) try to talk you into buying a timeshare. They'll even give you a present if you say yes! Saying yes means dealing with them for the next two hours, and that's *not* why you went on vacation. BE SMART - SAY NO - GO ENJOY YOUR VACATION! :)
We've had too many bad experiences with guests from Orange County, California. If you are a current or former resident of Orange County and would like to rent from us, kindly be kind in your messages; we'll get the hint that you're a decent person and will welcome you with open arms.
