All three bedrooms have comfortable queen mattresses and we have one real log bunk bed for the kids.

The house is warmed by central heat and is extremely well insulated. Bear Haven has TWO water heaters; one for each floor so there should always be plenty of hot water!

Bear Haven sits on a large flat lot with lots of room for the kids to play, there are open areas behind us and half a block away are trails that lead into a 700 acre preserve.

We have seen bears, deer, coyotes, raccoons, squirrels, chipmunks, and so many different birds around the cabin. Bring some seed and fill up the feeder on the back deck, then sit back and wait to see all the critters that come! Our daughter has even had the Nuthatches eat seeds right out of her hand

Bear Haven is our second home and we have made it a comfortable, warm, and inviting place for all of our family to gather.

Personal touches like hand made furniture, hand made quilt wall hangings, paintings by local artists, old photos showing Big Bear history decorate the cabin. Cleanliness is highly important to us so Bear Haven is professionally cleaned after each guest, so whether it is your family or our ours that is the next to arrive it is ready, clean and sparkling!

Our family has made many special memories at Bear Haven and we hope your family will too!

We are Mark & Suzie and we would like to welcome you to Bear Haven Cabin. Mark has been coming here since he was a young child when his parents bought their first cabin in Big Bear City back in the early 1970s. Mark and Suzie met in High school and that is when he introduced her to the beautiful Big Bear Valley. We are fortunate to have our home not far from Bear Haven and spend most of our time there when we are not traveling for work.

We have traveled all over North America and stayed in many cabins and always have used VRBO to book just like many of our guests have. We have had many wonderful stays along with a few clunkers. From these experiences we have learned what we like and what we think our guests would enjoy.
