About the owners Laura & Mateo: As a San Diego native I have always wanted to own a Big Bear retreat. I have loved the area since my first trip to the area at age 8. There is so much to do and see year round. I love this place because it is close to all the attractions that makes Big Bear great, but is still in a quiet neighborhood and is a great and safe area for my daughter, Lily, to play. We own 4 properties in Big Bear: Edgewood Mansion, Lily Bear Lodge, Village Vacation, and coming soon the Villa Grove. All these properties can sleep anywhere from 24-55 people making it perfect for large groups, corporate retreats, and family reunions. We also allow special events on our properties for an additional fee.
