About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

As part of the family, Napoleon Dynamite's (Jon Heder) favorite getaway is Coyote Crest, a romantic, yet family friendly 2 bedroom cabin in central Big Bear Lake. Enjoy this quality LAKEVIEW cabin in the best location in Big Bear.

For those of you tired of So. Cal. driving, once you arrive at Coyote Crest, you never have to get in your car again. Walk to the village for boutique shopping, gourmet dining, movies or bowling (a Napoleon favorite!). Miles of trails for hiking and biking are out the back door and skiing is a short drive (1 mile) away. Or just enjoy the incredible views from the 2nd floor outdoor deck hot tub.

The focus at this upstairs unit of the cabin is to see the lake and majestic mountain views from all the main rooms of the home. Whether you are in the living room by the fire, at the kitchen sink, or kicking back in the master bedroom by the fire, there is not a view of the lake that can not be seen! If you are looking to be 'At' the lake 'AND' enjoy a true mountain cabin experience, (completely remodeled inside) this is the cabin for you! Don't be a 'friggin idiot' - Rent this cabin now!

For those with families, the cabin has the following:


High chair

booster seat

yard with swings, tree house and a hill for sledding

There is a king bed in the master bedroom. A double bed and a twin in the guest bedroom. There is one large bathroom with separate toilet and shower areas.

A great location, but be wary of hot weather and noise neighbors

  • 4 of 5

The location was great and the yard area with the firepit and chairs with the treehouse was terrific. The hot tub was also a hit with the whole family. We had a a bit of a snafu that there were no bath towels upon arrival, but Meg quickly rectified. A note to those staying during hotter weather-- there is no a/c. It got pretty toasty during the day. While it cooled off at night with the windows open, there were partiers staying in a nearby house, who kept us up the majority of the first night. On the second, we threatened to call the cops and they finally quieted down. Because we couldn't close the windows without it getting super hot, we had to deal with the neighbor noise. Overall, a nice value for the location and amenities.

Nice family getaway

  • 4 of 5

Overall was a good few days in Big Bear. Upon arrival the place had not been cleaned yet, called Meg and found out it was an honest mix up by the cleaning woman who arrived within an hour or so. I think the cleaning could be a little more thorough and there are definitely some things that need to be updated and/or replaced in the unit. The fridge wouldn't get cold enough, the kitchen table chairs were broken and the snacks left for us were expired. We go to Big Bear often and for the rate I guess I expected a little bit more. Beds and linens were fine, towels were rough but thankfully we'd brought some of our own. We had our toddler with us and there was a highchair and pack and play which was handy. A safety gate on the deck stairs would be a nice addition for families with little ones. The view of the lake from the deck is nice and we were able to enjoy the hot tub a bit too. Location is super close to town and walkable which is nice, as another reviewer noted it's a little steep coming back. I think this rental is best suited for couples or families with slightly older children. Meg was easy to contact and she kindly refunded our cleaning deposit due to the mix up.

Owner's Response: Darcy is correct. The house was not up to my standards. I was embarrassed when I went up a saw for myself. Her cleaning fee was refunded. I am a very present owner but this year has been extremely busy and I have not been able to assess the cabin since it's been full most weekends. As I mentioned to Darcy, I do a deep clean twice a year in the off seasons when it's not so busy. This week it was deep cleaned, carpets and upholstery cleaned. A new table was put in last week since the other was broken by a guest. The fridge is fine. I've never had a complaint. The towels are nice from Costco so I'm not sure about that comment. I leave a complimentary gift basket. It is voluntary if you want to partake. Old snacks have been thrown out. As you can see, most guests are truly happy with the cabin. It's beautiful. I hope Darcy will give it another try.

It was "Dynamite" :)

  • 5 of 5

Close to Village. Steep hill though for walking going home from the Village. But doable. When we were tired, we would drive the car to the bottom of Cameron Drive which is where the Public Parking is and park it there and drive back up when done :) Quiet neighborhood with some view of the lake. Owner was easy to communicate with. Thank you for letting us stay!!

Nice place. Great views. Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the place. We were looking for a 3 day trip. The town has good food and it is walkable but hike back is up hill. Easy access to hiking trails or mountain biking. Rode bike around lake.

The house is nice and the fireplace and hot tub are added bonuses.

Plan ahead since you have to pack out garbage to dump. A 15 min trip. Not a big hassle but need to plan.

We would stay here again. Many options in Big Bear Lake.

Perfect getaway place!

  • 5 of 5

Brought my family to Meg's place for a long weekend getaway from LA. Perfect location to get into town, go skiing, or just relax with views of the lake. We had a great, great time! Cabin is spacious and well kept.

While close to town, it is a pretty vertical walk to get up or down. We opted to drive with our two little ones in tow (I am not sure they could have handled the walk). But plenty of parking and everything you may need otherwise.

Enjoy your stay!
