Recent Big Bear City reviews


    "Our stay over the New Year's holiday was even better than we expected! We were looking for a cozy mountain cabin and Top O'The Rainbow fit all of our needs. The cabin is extremely clean with comfortable bedding and even heated blankets for those crisp winter nights. Lots of amenities with a well stocked kitchen. We were especially grateful for the fenced in yard for our dog who we respectfully kept in the kitchen and yard area since there is a convenient gate separating the kitchen from the carpeted areas. We brought her favorite bed for the kitchen and she was happy to be with us. The location of the house was perfect...close to the mountain (my son and husband had a great time night skiing) and also close to the market, restaurants and even Starbucks! It's on a quiet street which is very easy to access. We plan to return in the summer and are very appreciative how easy the owners are to work with. Thank you Cindy and Tim for sharing your lovely cabin-home with us!"

  • Nice cabin close to everything!

    "We loved the Farmhouse in Big Bear. It is close to the village and the lake along with plenty of good hiking trails within a 10 min drive. The best part of the cabin was that we felt very comfortable leaving our dog in the backyard while we went out to enjoy a meal. Cant wait to come back next year."

  • Charming cottage, perfect summer retreat

    "Love it! I've stayed in a number of home stays / vacation rentals in my travels around the world, and this is my favorite so far. A charming rustic cottage with all modern amenities, everything is included for a carefree getaway. The kids loved the loft, the hot tub, indoor & outdoor fireplaces. My wife & I loved the quiet street, with beautiful homes & nature all around. The owner & property manager were very helpful, and we have friends who are keen to rent this place on our recommendation. Thanks guys!! M & R"

  • The perfect cabin for a family vacation

    "this is such an adorable, cozy cabin, we couldn't have been happier with it. It exceeded our expectations. From outside it looks like a cabin from a fairy tale, and inside is so charming and offers everything we needed for our stay. We have a 19 month old boy who loved the house; the deck in the back was his favorite spot. And all those bears everywhere are super cute. He loved one of the bears so much, he didn't want to leave it :) We have been telling all our friends about our great experience and will definitely be staying here again."
