You’ll also find the cozy and welcoming lounge and bar area that overlooks the lake with a full custom wood bar with refrigerator, offering yet another gathering area, with its casual lodge style atmosphere. Truly a relaxing and welcoming spot to enjoy your mountain experience and watch the sun light up the lake and create a multi-color palette over the mountains. And if you must work, you can take advantage of the full desk offered in the office alcove – along with this home’s wireless high speed internet – so you’ll be able to keep in touch, but only if you have to.

About Jim and Janelle Riley

Transplants both - one from Anchorage and one from Upstate NY, we met on rollerblades in Venice Beach. We got married in Napa CA, and moved into our Venice Bungalow in 2002...not long after along came a couple of cool kids named Braeden and Emme. So we rebuilt the Bungalow and started our little family. We wanted to find a mountain home to allow our kids to enjoy and appreciate nature like we had the good fortune to do as kids. We found that place and so much more on Eagle Point in Big Bear. We've created many memories over the years with friends and family - from swimming, boating, fishing and hiking in summer to skiing, sledding and cuddling in front of a toasty fire with a classic movie in the winter - every season is special in Big Bear! We try to get up as much as possible, to reconnect with nature and with each other. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Jim and Janelle Riley purchased this lodge in 2011

Why Jim and Janelle Riley chose Big Bear Lake

We bought our Lodge in 2011 from custom builders Bob & Gina Gilligan, who live next door and have become our good friends. They built the home as a Designer Showcase, and they spared no detail on the design or function. What they created is a mountain masterpiece and we feel blessed to own this unique Big Bear Lodge. This is the quintessential SoCal Mountain Lake House, with plenty of room for friends and family - featuring true Log Home beauty and unparalleled Lake and Sunset views. The location on Eagle Point is private and serene, but it's also close to great skiing, the Village shops and restaurants, and other area attractions. There is simply no better way to experience the beauty and splendor of Big Bear Lake and our magnificent San Bernardino Mountains! Live it, Up!

What makes this lodge unique

When you stay at a resort Lodge like this, you expect the luxury of a 5 star hotel, but you also want the comforts of home. That's what we strive to provide to our guests. Just minutes from everything you want to do while visiting Big Bear, but secluded on Eagle Point so it's quiet and peaceful. It is a custom Log Lodge with cathedral ceilings and windows overlooking the Lake, but it's also warm and inviting, featuring a custom chef's kitchen and community dining for 12, with cozy furnishings and entertainment spaces on every floor. It was featured in the independent thriller 'Silent Retreat' which was filmed in the Spring of 2013. But we always say the best films are shot by friends and family, and our returning guests who sometimes share them with us. Days on the lake or in the mountains, preparing and sharing great meals and memorable special events, and relaxing with a glass of wine under a starry sky; those are the pictures we love to see and the moments we love to share!

Just close your eyes and think about Mountain high, Lakefront serenity. You'll be here sooner than you think, and we hope you come back over and over again.

Beautiful Spacious Home ON THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful lakefront cabin over Memorial Day weekend. 3 Small families shared the space with plenty of room to spare!

The cabin is excellently appointed with custom details that gain attention the more you pay attention.

The lake views are stunning and the dock is accessible with fish jumping and serves as an excellent launch pad for boating, fishing and swimming. Our 12 year old boys kayaked, swam and fished. Never mind the fact the water was cold!

The bathrooms are gorgeous and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The loft with bar, air hockey, pac man arcade and theatre seats were a big hit and kept the kids busy in the evening while the parents enjoyed the balcony, yard and kitchen.

The house is closely located near two grocery stores, sporting goods store and the marina where we rented our pontoon for the weekend.

Overall a great stay and a fantastic Memorial Day weekend in one of the nicest places on the lake. I highly recommend! We’ll be back!

Carman New Year’s Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect! The amount of space was more than adequate for our party of nine. Room to be together and plenty of room to be alone. The game and media room offered plenty of entertainment. The kitchen was very well equipped and stocked. The best I’ve experienced in 20 years of renting vacation homes. Moving outside the decks upper and lower provide great views of the lake and comfortable seating in which to enjoy it. It was a fantastic location to ring out 2017 and start 2018.

We had the family skiing weekend of our lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

We had the family skiing weekend of our lifetime at Janelle’s and Jim’s house!!!

We spent the weekend with another family and had a truly exceptional experience in every aspect. Janelle’s/ Jim’s home is so spacious and beautiful with the wooden interior and all the little details that make the house so inviting and unique. And the location with the lake view is breathtaking.

Both the kids and parents had so much fun. After many hours on the slope, the five kids btw. age of 3 and 6 had a blast playing board games, Pac Man (… which also brought back many memories for the parents, back when we were kids), air game, watching movies and enjoying the whirlpool.

That gave the parents time to cook together, enjoy wine in front of the cozy fireplace and adore the beautiful views and sunsets of the lake.

And we had an amazing family dinner having Swiss raclette at the spacious family table.

Janelle and Jim were very helpful with suggestions about skiing, grocery shopping and other tips before our stay.

Janelle and Jim – thanks again for everything in making our skiing weekend awesome and so memorable!

Our family highly recommends this destination and we will surely be back next season!

So much winter fun!

  • 5 of 5

We are not very experienced with winter weather and winter activities.

The owners were so helpful with suggestions, and we knew exactly what to expect about the neighborhood, the skiing ideas, the time of day to get up and down the mountain.

The house is so comfortable and we had a great time relaxing after ski lessons. We cooked together, watched TV all together, built snowmen together.

There were 3 families in our group, and we thought it would be total chaos. But the kids played in the game room, while the adults hung out in the bar area. We all had our own bathrooms, and it was really hard to leave.

Our family highly recommends this destination!!

Just got back home today from spending the weekend at Eagle Point and we can't stop looking at pictures and videos. I surprised the wife with a weekend trip to Big Bear for her 30th birthday. Needless to say this house ended up surprising us both! Everything was perfect, from the gourmet kitchen, beautiful views, air hockey, hot tub, master suite... EVERYTHING! We spent a day at snow summit snowboarding, that was awesome (a little over a mile away)! Janelle was great and very accommodating. She was available for any/all questions. Look no further, this is the one! Thanks again!!
