Welcome to our second home we call 'The Gorgia Peach'
The Georgia Peach was built in the 1920's when Big Bear Lake was a roaring gold mining and resort area. In the 80's the Peach had some major additions including a master bedroom with bath and a garage which doubled it's size. The Peach is located on Georgia Street, arguably one of the most beautiful streets in Big Bear Lake.
At the turn of the last century when Big Bear Lake was a gold boom town, Georgia Street was close enough to the town (now the Village area) for the men to walk to and from, but far enough away that the law didn't care what went on. It is said that back in the 1920's and 1930's that Georgia street was where the rowdy crowd of Big Bear partied. Our Georgia Peach still sits at the end of this now quiet historic street next to the National forest.
The peach is within walking distance to most of the fun spots in Big Bear. From the Peach, you can walk to the slopes, lake and the village.
You will first notice the Beauty of Georgia street when you turn on it from the boulevard to head up to the Peach. The tall trees that flank it on both sides block the sun in areas to give the area a storybook feel. When the winds blow, the trees sway and it sounds like the forest itself is speaking to you.
When first arriving at the Peach you will notice how quiet it is except for a bird or two, then as you step out of your car the sweet smell of the mountain air will tell you how close to nature you really are.
The peach is a 2 story rustic home approximately 1300 square feet with 2 bedrooms, 4 beds that can sleep 7 people comfortably in their own beds. There are 2 full baths, a full kitchen and a natural rock log burning fireplace with your own free firewood*.
Outside there is enough driveway to park 5 full size cars with a carport and a 2 car garage.
The lower bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser, closet and TV while the huge upper bedroom has a king size bed, a full and a twin child's bed with a dedicated bathroom with bathtub. The huge upstairs bedroom is perfect for entertaining the kids with a new 32' TV with internet apps like Netflix, while you and your friends can enjoy themselves downstairs with a movie or games.
There is a full kitchen with a dishwasher and all of the essentials you would expect in a kitchen. The 4 place kitchen table can expand to seat 7 for your big parties.
There is a full bathroom upstairs and a bathroom downstairs with a shower, toilet and sink.
There is also a washer and dryer for your dirty clothes.
The Peach also has a garage and a carport to keep your cars out of the snow and the rain.
There is a home gym in the garage to workout if you need it.
There are lots of great things to do in the peach including foosball with your own foosball table, watch TV or a movie and free on line gaming of over 200 games from OnLive.
There is also a 42' high resolution TV with internet apps including free Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and many more.
We also have installed a new tankless water heater so you can enjoy endless hot water. This is something you will appreciate when your whole group gets back from skiing and you all have to shower at the same time.
For the gamers in your party we have a foosball table and the OnLive gaming system with 2 controllers so 2 people can play together. The gaming systems contains a library of over 200 games to play instantly This library has games for young and old kids. No discs or downloading to worry about here. Just Play! Most of these games are new releases not a bunch of old releases.
So save your quarters and leave your gaming discs at home.
The location of the Peach is one of the best in the Big Bear Valley.
In the summer you can walk to the lake and enjoy a nice sunny day on the sandy beach and if you get too hot, take a dip in the lake or you can hike right out of your front door and into the National forest. While hiking up the mountain trails, (make sure you bring your camera) prepare yourself for scenes right out of the movies as the trails will take you to green valleys and other areas that truly are breathtaking. In some spots along many of the trails you can see the entire lake. Geocaching is also a great thing to do while hiking around the valley.
You can also walk to the village to and enjoy some shopping or a romantic dinner.
In the winter you can get in the back way to Snow Summit and get in and out much quicker than the people on the boulevard. Snow Summit also has a free shuttle to Bear Mountain. Both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain are owned by the same organization, so the tickets you buy at one park will work at the other.
To make sure you and your family and friends have a safe vacation, the Peach is has smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the house.

What a great stay here at the Georgia Peach with my family! My husband and I, our 13-year-old boy and almost 12-year-old girl and our dog had a terrific time in what we thought of as our home away from home for the week we stayed here. The Georgia Peach is everything it claimed to be! It was clean, well-supplied and equipped with all the comforts of home (and quite possibly a little more if you include the built-in video gaming system, Foosball table, Netflix and beautiful scenery!). The cabin is located just a couple steps from the hiking trail where there is a beautiful view of the lake and a feeling of being far away from civilization, but at the same time it is conveniently located near everything making it really convenient. We were here during the summer, so we enjoyed kayaking at Boulder Bay and hiking quite a bit (close to many incredible hiking trails), but we also really enjoyed family time just hanging out in the cabin playing games and watching movies. We cooked several meals in the cabin and found all the cookware and utensils we needed with everything being really clean. The owner provided detailed instructions on everything we needed in the cabin as well as a thorough handbook containing lots of useful information, not only for the cabin but nearby stores, dining, etc. A nice touch was the candy dish on the coffee table that I'm pretty sure my kids ate their way through over the course of a week, and the gift basket left for us upon our arrival. These little details together with the warm and cozy environment of the cabin contributed to a fabulous stay here. I also couldn't believe how quiet the street was. I often felt like we were the only people around and would rarely see anyone else. My family and I can't wait to come back here and stay again...perhaps for some winter fun in the snow next time. I highly recommend the Georgia Peach for anyone looking to get away for some peace and quiet with breathtaking surroundings, especially if you have kids (or grownups) who aren't quite ready to give up their technology! The Georgia Peach is the best of both worlds!

This is a great cabin, central to all of Big Bear Lake. The forest access above the cabin is super close and easy to get to. All of the extra amenities are super and Jerry is very friendly and easy to work with! We would definitely stay here again!

This place was exactly what me and my friends were looking for. Very cozy, homey feeling, we felt like we could stay there forever.
The second we set foot in the cabin we immediately decided to stand our stay, and we did!
The peach is conveniently close to everything from restaurants, bars, the village and of course Bear Mountain ski resort.

This was a wonderful choice for Big Bear in the spring time! We went (4 adults) and stayed at Jerry & Susanne's cabin for the weekend. Everything was just perfect! The cabin was entirely clean and inviting. We loved using the beautiful fire place and there's a hiking trail only a few feet from the house. Big Bear Village is a short drive away - everything was so convenient! It was really nice to know that Jerry was only a quick phone call away if we had any problems. Overall this was a great experience. We can't wait to return!!

I am not good with many words...The Georgia Peach is just that! Great place to stay at Big Bear ... no detail was left undone. All of us said our stay was too short. Because the cabin felt like home we plan to check out Big Bear in summer. We've never gone to Big Bear in summer. Looking forward to it!

We came to the Georgia Peach on vacation with our daughter, son-in-law, and their black lab. It was perfect for us! The Peach is spacious and in a great location close to town. Loved the hot tub! The scenery in Big Bear is amazing! Cute shops downtown and everyone is so friendly. Get pizza at a restaurant in the village called ___ Kitchen? (sorry, can't remember the name, but it is on a corner, has patio seating, and 'pizza' is on the sign). Delicious! We especially enjoyed rock climbing and walking the trails (and the dog did too!) It was definitely a highlight of our vacation. We made memories to last a lifetime. Thank you! :)

We had a fantastic time at the Georgia Peach. The cabin was clean, extremely comfortable, and felt like a home away from home. Jerry is more than accommodating and made sure that our stay was perfect. We were lucky enough to get lots of snow the entire time we were there which made the whole weekend even better. Thanks Jerry! We will certainly be back again and again!

"The Georgia Peach" Absolutely Big Bear's "Best Kept Secret" What a wonderful, peaceful and cozy place to get away from the city and traffic. Truly the one and only place for me and mine to hide out on the mountain as a couple or a Family. Every comfort and need is at your fingertips and it is so easy to believe that you have lived there forever. You really have it all here. Snow activities, shopping, restaurants and all necessities are just minutes away as well as the many majestic views from all around the lake. Absolutely the only place for this Family to stay at every opportunity possible and recommend it with the highest of regard.
