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!"

  • Will be reserving again next year

    "This cabin was easy to reserve and the owner was very easy to work with The cabin was charming and had everything we needed. We had a big group of volunteers for our organization, Riding on Insulin, and we all loved it. The loft was perfect for housing the men in our group (they didn't want to share beds). I would highly recommend this cabin and we look forward to renting it again for our camp next year."

  • Family Retreat

    "Exactly what my family was looking for. Cozy for quality time with the family. Pleasantly surprised at how kid friendly the place was with gated stairs, high chair, pack and play, bed railings for the bunk beds. This made for a much more relaxing place with a toddler! My family also commented that they enjoyed the decor saying it was much better quality that other places we've tried and felt more like a real home away from home. The hiking was just out the back door and had beautiful views. Quaint small town, not over crowded like the other major towns. The cabin was clean and well stocked with the essentials I always seem to forget. The owners were friendly and answered all if my many questions. Would definitely recommend and plan on returning in the future!"
