From the Zillow listing:


Experience time travel. A look back into the early 1900’s is what this unique cabin in the woods is all about. Remote, forested setting near the water. This little-known area of Big Bear called Keystone Point is gated for privacy. The main living area is 500 square feet and is conducive for large gatherings. Walk out to the long, covered deck and relax in an Adirondack chair as you enjoy the amazing lake view and fresh air. A few steps out the side door brings you to the kitchen room with the antique Roper cook stove and original wooden sideboards at the sink. Up the stairs, you’ll find 3 bedrooms; 1 quite large with a beautiful view of the lake. Open beamed ceilings give an expansive feeling to the upstairs. A clawfoot tub with shower attachment is down the hall. A second 1/2 bath is below the staircase; both baths are accessed from outside; an experience in its own right. From the hallway upstairs, a door opens to a path through the gigantic granite boulders to a wooden walkway which leads to a bedroom above the kitchen building. Old fashioned handmade quilts adorn the 2 twin beds. Built on National Forest Land; hence, the low price for the location since you aren’t purchasing the land. Cannot be rented as an AirBnB, but as a second home for the owner, friends and family. Built for summer use only; however, the bones are there to upgrade into something for colder seasons. One-of-a-kind and you must see to believe.
