"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!"

"Our family rented the cabin for my daughter's birthday. It was a little out of the way from the main street. The cabin was just like the photos. I would say our only complaints are 1. Ice machine is not working, 2. The lock on upstairs bathroom gets stuck and you can't open the bathroom door, 3. Not enough kitchen towels, bath towels or washcloths for 15 people. 4. Upon our arrival there were a lot of moths inside the cabin. I am not sure if that's because there are not screens on every window. 5. Video game was out of order (we closed laundry room door so the kids didn't notice). If the ice machine, lock on bathroom door fixed and more towels were added everything thing else was perfect.
The furnishings, tvs, deck furniture, grill, jacuzzi and the view was awesome. There was plenty of beds to accommodate everyone. Having 4 flats screen tvs was enough to keep everyone happy. The kitchen was fully equipped. Plenty of blankets and pillows. Very clean and well kept. We enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be back for another weekend getaway."

"My family (husband, 4 and 2-year old boys) and I stayed at this cabin and just returned! It was in a lovely location centrally located by the village, an awesome tubing hill (alpine slide), and the lake! Cabin was comfortable, beds were so soft and loved the central heating. Unfortunately while we were there the center rain-shower head was no longer there! Also, the fireplace was unlike any I had ever seen before and even with some instruction from the owner we were unable to light it.
But at the end of the day, loved our stay, my kids and husband and I could have stayed longer. The owner, John, was very helpful and had so many great tips about the area it was a pleasure dealing with him. I highly recommend this cabin!!"
