  • Perfect location to celebrate our parents 50th anniversary.

    "My brother, sister and I chose Big Bear Castle to celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. When packing the car at the end of the week, my mother cried because it was so perfect. We were so close to skiing, four wheeling, shopping and other winter fun and had a wonderful time. The house is big enough that all ten of us were quite comfortable and had our own private space when we wanted it. The separate guest house was perfect four my family of four, and provided a perfect arrangement that avoided too much "togetherness!!" The large main room was so perfect, with plenty of seating for watching TV or movies, unwrapping Christmas presents, and enjoying each other's company. We got a lot of use out of the pool table, and played games and cards, too. With so many tables to choose from, we found plenty of space for puzzles, kids projects, and of course eating and drinking. The house is well maintained and beautiful. We appreciated the private feeling offered by the fencing and gated driveway. And we got plenty of use out of the hot tub, which was serviced while we were there (it was nice to know it's cleaned regularly!!) If you're considering this property, don't hesitate. The owners are friendly and helpful, and offered us lots of tips on local attractions. Their property manager was easily accessible by text or cell phone, and everything went smoothly. Two thumbs up. Thanks for a great week, Big Bear Castle. Steve"

  • Amazing time, Great location, Perfect Cabin.

    "Christmas comes but once a year and spending it at this unbelievably beautiful cabin was the best present of all. The moment we walked in we knew that we landed in "Cabin Paradise," even if it was in the 20's outside. The inside was about as cozy as it could get. A magnificent fireplace, comfy couches, and big screen TV's all over the place. The only thing missing in the kitchen was a great chef, so we brought are own. The bed was so comfortable, I kept looking for my Crown when I woke up. The owners made everything all to easy from booking, Check-in and Check-out, and being accessible for any and all questions or concerns. We're already thinking of booking again for next Christmas."

  • Nice rustic cabin

    "This cabin was exactly what what the add says. Had a great time with the family, kids loved it! My 6 year old son loved the gaming as well as the nearby hiking and zoo. Free firewood was awesome!"

  • Huge. Functional. Pretty solid.

    "I went here for a Big Bear getaway with a group of twelve friends. We liked how many bathrooms and bedrooms there were. The BBQ worked. The hot tub worked. Unlike other reviews there were no issues with neighbors... and we were pretty loud. There were a few little issues that we laughed about... and the lake view was only from a few of the rooms... not from the porch... but all-in-all we were happy. The place could use a handyman to fix the rubber on the freezer or mount a few toilet paper holders better... but those were small things. On the plus side there was a pool table, poker table, fussball table and the place was as big as a castle. We had no issues checking in or out. The late check out was sweet! Good property. (P.S. Bring your own BBQ tools, blender and knives. 30 knives in the place and none could cut a tri-tip.)"
