18 - Ponderosa Peak

- -


Step into the serene expanses of Ponderosa Peaks, a 5-bedroom estate that stands as a beacon of beauty amidst the mountains.  

With its 2-story picture windows and expansive decks, this home offers an unparalleled panorama of the mountains and ski runs, serving as your own private observatory in Big Bear Lake.

Relish your morning coffee on one of the two extensive decks, each offering a 180-degree view of the majestic surroundings. Breathe in the crisp, cool, pine-scented air, as you find your peace above the treetops.

Inside, the house welcomes you with its modern decor and newly-appointed furnishings. Step into a grand, 2-story great room, complete with a large, comfy sofa, an HDTV for entertainment, a dedicated dining area, and a chef's kitchen to inspire your culinary exploits.

The house is thoughtfully divided into two levels: the entry-level houses one cozy bedroom, while the lower level offers four additional bedrooms and a game room for your entertainment. 

This game room serves as the heart of indoor fun with a large Smart HDTV, Golden Tee Golf video game, and a shuffleboard game.

Experience the magic of Big Bear Lake in style and comfort at Ponderosa Peaks. This estate is not just a rental home, but a space that inspires relaxation, entertainment, and unforgettable memories.

While air conditioning is absent, nature compensates with its own cooling system - the fresh mountain air.

Note: We tend to stay well booked year-round. We recommend that you book ahead of time to make sure you secure your desired dates.
*Disclosure: The hammock is only available during summer months, due to high winds.
