"We had an amazing time in Gary & Mara's lovely cabin. It was well stocked with kitchen items as well as games. puzzles and activities. It is in a wonderful location for walks, hikes, bike rides and shopping. We were lucky enough to even get an evening of light snow! Gary was very helpful from suggestions of things to do, places to eat and ensuring that everything was perfect for our stay. Thanks so much for sharing your retreat with us, we hope to return!"

"From the very first email inquiry to the check-out our experience was 100% positive! The owners and property both deserve 5 Stars+ This was the perfect home for us to gather youth and their leaders from our church to hold "Girls Camp." Think Troop Beverly Hills Girls Camp! (not one ounce of roughing it, more like luxury living) The home comfortably slept and accommodated 20 people. Kitchen was perfect for entertaining and was well-stocked with everything imaginable for gourmet cooking and eating! There's nothing that the owners haven't thought of and that's what I loved, feeling like I was Home away from Home!"

"We recently rented a place at big bear. When we arrived the place was nice and clean and had some nice amenities. The first night we just had 5 adults staying at the house. It was very nice. On the second day the rest of our group arrived with 4 more adults and 4 kids. When they say the place sleeps 16 it means a lot of the people are sleeping in the same bed rooms. Because this was a weekend with kids involved it wasn't all that bad. But if you are all adults and are wanting to have more than 4 couples this place will not accommodate that many. When our group travels we all expect to have our own room. If you have all adults plan on more of a camping experiment with friends than a luxury place that sleeps 16 as advertised. The place was very nice just not a place for 16 adults if considering it.
In each of the guest rooms they have crammed in extra beds with 4 and even as many as 6 sleeping in the same room. With kids this is fine. However, we were considering at first for this to be just an adult weekend away. If you go that route and had more than 8 you would have couples sharing a room. So the 16 is a little misleading.
Other than that we had a great time. We grilled out both nights on the grill provided and the living area and kitchen was large enough for us all to fit comfortably. Even watched a little football on Sat and Sun. Nice size TV was there. The kitchen was nice. Would recommend providing more utensils than provided. But we cooked and ate at the table and grill out. All was a nice time spent with friends.
We brought our boat up with us and docked it at the house. All went very smooth. The lake is very low now because of no rain in a while but nobody can control that. So be careful for the shallow area around the docks if you bring a boat. We had a pontoon so it worked out fine. If you have a V-Hull boat the water might be to low to fit the boat into the dock. Hope the area gets some rain this year and the lake starts to fill back up. Such a nice area for the lake to get much lower will ruin it for a lot of places up there.
All in all a great trip and we would do it again!"
