    Love Love Love this house and 2 acres ? amazing !

  • Gigi October 10, 2016, 4:41 pm

    Wow! This house is awesome! I especially love the wall color in the kitchen.

  • Kim W October 10, 2016, 5:05 pm

    I love it! What a great use of space and a beautiful setting. Is the third bedroom in the basement with the washer and dryer?

  • Rebecca October 10, 2016, 5:06 pm

    Beautiful, nice acreage in an area where lots are usually much smaller. It would be easy to live there But overpriced for an area with no water. (But Nestlé still paying almost nothing to drain the water there)

      It is a great lot size! — Tiny House Talk Team

    • Sondra October 12, 2016, 2:35 pm

      No water ? confused by your comment.

      • Rebecca October 12, 2016, 3:48 pm

        Significant drought, restrictions on water usage. Bear lake water level dropping significantly. Unlikely to change for the better anytime soon.

        • Sondra October 12, 2016, 4:06 pm

          All of Southern California is like this, nothing new there, we all conserve water, but we still receive water. They are building desalination water plants now which will help immensely.

    This is a nearly perfect! It’s big enough that you can live a somewhat typical existence (full kitchen, real bath) and still small enough to be adorable. I guess the basement is the third bedroom, but if that’s the case, then this is more likely 700 sq ft house, not 536. No matter. I’d put some storage and a couple freezers downstairs and I’d be good to go.

    I think this is a much better house for a small family than the tiny homes. If someone built this new, they could insulate well and it wouldn’t use much more energy than a tiny house.

      I agree it looks like a great family home :) — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Kat October 10, 2016, 10:36 pm

    It’s so cute! I love the teal kitchen!

  • Sandi B October 11, 2016, 1:04 am

    This is a cute house — I am not overly fond of the kitchen — there is no real space under those cabinets — I don’t think you could even get a blender under them. I am also not fond of the teal. Anyway, the price is high because this is a ski area in the winter and under normal conditions the road is not always passable. Also it is not really close to anything and over a two hour drive from the outskirts of Los Angeles. You would need four wheel drive, the road is very steep in areas and windy, single lane each way.

    • Natalie Natalie October 11, 2016, 8:09 am

      For the right person, perhaps :) Especially if you ski! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • ZACHARY E MOHRMANN October 11, 2016, 6:06 am

    Beautiful Huge, tiny house…! At somewhere I believe just over 500 sq. ft. I think was said, it looks so much bigger in pictures… A beautiful tiny house with 2 acres for under $280,000.00… A lot of money, but I understand that property is very expensive in California.. And I have no idea where Big bear is but it sure looks very nice… I was out there on the west coast once way back many years ago, and did not care for it very much at least not in the California area I was in, No offence to those of you from that State just not my cup of tea I guess….

    • Natalie Natalie October 11, 2016, 8:10 am

      It is so pretty :) But yes, located in a pricey spot! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Eric October 11, 2016, 10:40 pm

    Bit scary the way the microwave is positioned. Gas cooker, flame spread, microwave catches fire… YIKES!

    • Natalie Natalie October 12, 2016, 6:22 am

      Good news is you could probably move it :) — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Dot Simpson October 12, 2016, 12:28 pm

    Beautiful house. Shame about the price.

    • Sondra October 12, 2016, 2:32 pm

      that’s a great price, again it’s Southern California, you’re less than 2 hours from the ocean, and you ski in the winter. I went to high school up there and I loved it. Down where I live now (still so cal about 15 mins from the ocean) it’s $295 for almost an acre, no house.

  • jm October 12, 2016, 2:49 pm

    LOve California, so much variety. $295 for almost an acre? I’m there!

  • Sarah October 12, 2016, 5:32 pm

    Hey I was in Big Bear with my family camping when I was 6 years old, beautiful area. I love the turquoise kitchen, but what I like even more are all the angles, makes it really fun. :) I will give this 9 stars (had to skip one star because I’m not big on white walls even though I think they make things light and airy), LOL!!

    • Natalie Natalie October 13, 2016, 6:44 am

      Haha I have to agree about white walls! I always love a bit of color — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Nanny M October 12, 2016, 10:35 pm

    What a sweet little place! Upstairs bedroom is precious. Big Bear is a beloved year round vacation spot. Could be rented out like a tine share. California will have water again.

  • ROSEE October 13, 2016, 7:53 pm

    WOW! Looks very airy on the inside, but what a contrast from the outdoors. A city cottage hiding in the woods, something very different. WOW!

  • Nancy October 18, 2016, 8:36 pm

    Absolutely gorgeous!! Love everything about it,

  • Anita October 18, 2016, 11:20 pm

    I love the building, I love the location. If I had the money and it wasn’t so far away, it could be wonderful.

  • Darrell October 23, 2016, 8:17 pm

    I love this place, not are what they have done with the ceiling, looks like some industrial drop ceiling which would be a real turn off for me however. The land the area being Big Bear and the design are all real plusses. Not sure what is going on with the pine bark beetle in that part of the mountain, fires could be a real danger. Regardless-nice house, nice price.
