Why Ed Smetak chose Whispering Forest
A beautiful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Crisp mountain air, lots of stars, skiing in the winter and fishing in the summer.
What makes this House unique
38 foot ceiling in the main living room with sky lights. There is a lot of inside space that make the property feel grand. The house sits on a slope which allows for magnificent views and privacy due to many evergreens growing around the property.

It was a nice weekend at big bear, close to ski rentals and ski resorts
Great for the Price
It was well worth the $$$$. We had a black out in the area during a storm and the owner Ed helped us with flash lights and candles. It only lasted a couple of hours, but still very fun
Awesome place for families!
We stayed at Ed’s place over the weekend. Definitely agree with a prior post that pictures don’t do this place justice as far as space. The home is huge! Plenty of parking is available. We absolutely loved everything about this house and will definitely be return guests!
The house is so big lots of space
It was an amazing stay
Great place great location
Enjoyed our New Years here. Plenty of room for family to gather. Pictures don’t do the views justice. The only thing is that the stairs do get slippery inside.
We enjoyed our family stay which included a white Christmas
The house had everything we needed and more. It was very comfortable and we all enjoyed the pool table. The decorations gave us a warm homey feeling. Plenty of space to get around yet able to get some privacy in all the upstairs rooms. It was nice to park in the garages and the snow shovels came in handy on Christmas day. Everything we wanted to do was only a few miles away. Ski areas, hiking trails. walkway around the lake, shopping and the Big Bear village were all in close proximity. We would definitely stay here again.
The house is a quick drive to both Snow Summit and Bear Mountain ski resorts in the winter.
The Big Bear Village is a 5 mile drive.
Big Bear's famous Oktoberfest is less than a mile away.
The Big Bear Discovery Center is 3 miles away. There are hiking paths of the Discovery Center and regular events for kids / whole family. A great place to start your outdoor adventure for those new to Big Bear.
