Welcome to Alta Vista Chalet. A beautifully updated mountain getaway, designed by Seth Green, is nestled among the trees and offers plenty of privacy. The large wrap-around deck is perfect to relax, take a break & breathe in the fresh mountain air! A fantastic great room showcases beautiful skylights, a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, and that cozy cabin feel you'll be excited to experience. Five themed bedrooms & two bathrooms make this the perfect vacation spot for a group or family getaway!
Enter through one of the three large sliding glass doors to begin your experience at this unique cabin. The dining room is set up with a picnic-style table and bench seating, perfect for getting a large group altogether in one space.

Beyond the dining room is an open & airy kitchen with updated appliances and great space to prepare a meal for a large or small gathering. The refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker and the range/oven are both gas. With pots, pans, dishes, glasses, mugs, flatware, cooking utensils, chef's knives and even special touches for setting an adorable table, you'll be able to make yourself right at home and prepare delicious fare easily. Don't forget, we supply the coffee and tea, grab-n-go snacks & bottled water as well!

Beyond the dining room is a large and comfortable living room, situated around the fireplace, complete with a wide selection of board games for all ages, as well as an air hockey table.

Behind the living area, you'll find the lower level bathroom with a large soaking tub and a washer & dryer for our guests to use. To the right of the bathroom are the two lower level bedrooms, complete with fresh linens and bedding.

Up the stairs to the next three rooms, you'll be met with the same comfort, attention to detail and bright & airy feel. The large second bathroom with a walk in shower and double vanity sink is located just before the 5th bedroom....The Tree House Room! Perfect for up to SIX children and/or teens, this room is like the inside of a pop-up book with vibrant colors and special touches the little ones will remember fondly.

The loft space, the final stop, would not be complete without a long sectional, a large screen TV and the giant Connect Four board. Check in to the apps pre-loaded on the Smart TV for access to Netflix, Hulu, DirectTV Now and Disney+ for free access to pre-paid and password protected movies, shows, series specials and children's television selections. Additional pre-loaded apps are available for guests to log in with personal passwords for additional access, but don't forget to log out before you check out.

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall...Big Bear has something to offer for everyone. From hiking, biking and fishing to snowboarding, skiiing or tubing, memories are waiting to be made here "with us" at Alta Vista Chalet!

WINTER: Snow, ice and/or rain is very common in this area and can occur as early as October and as late as May. BE PREPARED. Download the local road information link to your phone for up-to-date information on weather, chain requirements and road closures & delays to choose the best route to your vacation rental destination. Property management will provide this in your check-in information. Whether you have 4-wheel drive or not, chains may be required on the drive up and in the area. Avoid having to turn around and backtrack to the bottom of the hill....grab your snow chains and have them in your car, ready to go. They are less expensive off the mountain and less demand will mean more availability for your tire-specific chain size. Follow local laws, rules & guidelines to have a safe and happy drive up, vacation and drive home.

Shuttle days, times and availability are season, and weather, dependent.
