In this charming home, the layout is thoughtfully designed with a reverse floor plan.

The main level adopts a great room feel characterized by wooden floors, T&G interiors, high beamed ceilings, and an inviting stone fireplace, creating a warm and cozy ambiance.

The modern eat-in kitchen, outfitted with tile floors, smoothly transitions into the living area and features a breakfast bar for quick meals or casual chats over coffee.

This inviting setting is the perfect place to create and share meals, adding to the overall enjoyment of your stay.

Moving to the lower level, you'll discover a game and family room. Equipped with its own fireplace and kitchenette, this area invites fun and relaxation.

You can enjoy a lively game of pool, engage in a friendly match of darts, watch a movie, or simply stretch out and spend quality time with your loved ones.

Stepping outside from the lower level, you'll find yourself in a park-like setting.

The fully fenced and gated yard offers a feeling of seclusion and security, while the inviting Jacuzzi beckons for a soothing soak under the stars.

The serene neighborhood encourages long, leisurely strolls and offers easy year-round access.

On the deck, there's a grill ready for your barbecue evenings, and an enclosed backyard with a hot tub to unwind after a day of mountain adventures.

Guests’ Rules

Welcome to the rules for Bayview Retreat Our aim is to maintain a harmonious environment that aligns with local Code Compliance and respects the comfort of all guests. As part of this effort, we've established some friendly but firm and inflexible house guidelines.

  1. Maximum Occupancy: 9 guests (adults max).
  2. Parking: Space for vehicles, excluding garage access. Exceeding the limit may result in fines of up to $1,000.
  3. Pets: Pets Allowed (Max: 2 pets).
    • Pets require pre-approval: Post-approval, a $125 fee per pet applies (charged post-booking).

      • Kennel pets when unattended.
      • Keep off furniture/beds.
      • Clean up after them.
      • Charges apply for pet damages.
    • Coyote Warning: Coyotes are extremely prevalent in Big Bear, even in the most densely populated areas. If you see one, you can bet they’re part of an unseen pack. These animals are bold and territorial. They pose a significant threat to pets. For their safety, never leave your pets unattended, even in fenced areas, especially after dark. Coyotes are known for their ability to overcome barriers, including high fences. And they’re even known for attacking pets that are on a leash. We cannot overstate the need for heightened vigilance concerning your pets' safety.
  4. Check-In: Conducted at The Village Office for a warm welcome and local code compliance.
  5. Noise: Quiet hours from 9 pm to 8 am. You are not allowed to be outside, in a hot tub, play music or create any noise from inside of the residence that could be heard outside of the home. If these rules are violated, Code Enforcement could impose fines of up to $1,000 or eviction.  (We have no control over Code Enforcement’s decisions.)
  6. Air Conditioning: None. Enjoy natural mountain breezes through open windows.
  7. Ants: Sometimes our ants can be a bit over-friendly. To keep these small visitors at bay, we suggest promptly cleaning up right after each meal and don’t leave food out. (We do use ant bait & ant traps… and the ants tend to look at those as snacks.)
  8. Trash: You are mandated by ordinance to dispose of your trash at the designated trash site. If you require assistance, we can arrange a pick-up service for a nominal fee.
  9. Video Surveillance & Noise Monitors: We employ external video surveillance and noise monitors at most of our properties. (We do not have video or audio monitoring inside of the residences.)
  10. No Smoking/Vaping: We have a very strict No Smoking and/ or No Vaping policy on the grounds of all of our properties.
    • If any guest smokes or vapes on the premises during their stay, a minimum cleaning fee of $750 will be charged automatically to the Credit Card on file to cover the cost of carpets cleaning, dry cleaning of all bedspreads, curtains, etc. And the security deposit will be forfeited.
  11. Age: Minimum booking age is 24. 
  12. Parties: No parties allowed; parties will result in immediate eviction and forfeiture of the security deposit. Additional cleaning fees may apply.

The place was great! The multi levels living rooms is great for accommodating families with kids. The pool table/game room was great. Perfect location next to the lake.

Our family of five had a blast in this home!

Lots to do, great activities, and the hot tub was awesome. Location was great- short walk to the beautiful lake. Plenty of towels and blankets. Loved having two fireplaces- used them both- super cozy. It was everything we hoped for!

Me and my family of 8 came and stayed for the weekend comfortably.

This place was nicely cleaned with fresh sheets, towels, etc. There was plenty of extra sheets and comforters. The heat worked nicely and the fireplace is gas so we didn't have to go get wood at all and that was definitely great! The game room had billiards, ping pong, and plenty of board games to choose from, along with books and other entertainment. The jacuzzi was absolutely wonderful in the cold day! The location was also nice right by the bay. Communication was great with the company, they answered right away with any questions I had. Overall an excellent place to stay. Would recommend.
