About Sherry Molling

Hi I live in San Diego , Ca. and try to get up to Big Bear Winter and Summer. I am a single mom and bought this in 2004 for my son and daughter to get into Winter games.I love having this cabin to share with renters. Its great location and amenities make it a year round cabin for everyone. I am a dog lover and so am pet friendly knowing how our pets are family and need to come on vacation also! I pride myself on keeping the cabin clean and comfortable!

Sherry Molling purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Sherry Molling chose Big Bear

I purchased this cabin as my friends all had small children and this made it so convenient to get to the resort on foot. The rule is first one awake drives their car to the parking lot loaded with equipment and snacks for the day and parks. That way it makes it even easier to enjoy a full day at the resort in the Winter.

What makes this cabin unique

It is very very private yet close to all. The jacuzzi is such a fantastic way to relax and watch the stars at night while listening to the wind blowing through the pines. The pool table allows the (kids) to entertain themselves. Each room has a TV so no arguing over the remote. The kitchen is full size and stocked with everything making cooking and clean up a breeze. The beds are some of the most comfortable with pillow top mattress for a great nights rest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Can't ask for a better family. In spite of the mishaps they stayed happy , understanding, and positive. Thanks for coming and please come up again

Cozy but roomy, perfect location, WALK to Snow Summit Resort THANK YOU SHERRY!

  • 5 of 5

Rent this. The downstairs is open and keeps the entire family "together" during pool games, football games, twister, movies, and meal preparation! There is wifi and a nice DVD movie selection, cable TV, washer/dryer and plenty of towels. The yard is truly fully fenced and pet friendly, with a jacuzzi (we did not try using the jacuzzi) and a deck with chairs. Homeowner very responsive to questions with answers and guidance. Homeowner's requests and house rules very reasonable. Sleeping accommodations terrific. Upstairs takes time to warm up, so EXPECT THAT, but it's not a big problem, turn up the heat when you walk in, there are plenty of extra comforters and blankets in both bedroom closets. You can WALK to snow summit. It's about two city blocks distance to the parking lot. If you have little ones and big ones, it's easy for Adults, older kids, to come and go to the ski resort and the house as they please. The 7-eleven is very close, ski rentals too, 7-eleven carries firewood (bring your own) and most things you need for a quick something in kitchen or other supplies. Groceries and Kmart very nearby (4 min. by car). The property has all the snow shovels you will need to clear your deck and around your car. Remember, you need tire chains to come up the mtn. in the snow (ice). You can order those online and make sure you have tensors for your chains/cables, gloves, plastic to put on ground, a long sleeve jacket or something to protect your clothing. TIP: I have a "back scratcher" that helps me "grab" the wire on the under car side of the tire. There are online movies to show you how to do it. I recommend watching those movies. There are 3 routes into Big Bear. Traffic is heavy getting up there, it can add unexpected drive time (2 hrs 4 us). Snow Summit has skiing for beginners on up, lockers to rent, equipment rentals, lessons, food, and another thing I'm grateful for...bathrooms at the top of chair 2. There is also a tubing park - Grizzly park - there at Snow Summit, we did not use it, so I can't review it, but good to know for little ones. Downtown Big Bear very close by. The Marina very close by.

This home is home away from home and user friendly. It's not so perfect that you are worried about the house which makes relaxing a little tough, and maintained and cared about enough to feel clean, safe, comfortable, roomy and fun. It's your friends home, and other people use it too. So come ready to live there like that. Not a hotel.

I have stayed at this property a few times. I love how close it is to the mountain. Very comfortable and so quiet. Lots of sunlight poring in in the mornings while drinking a cup of coffee.

Best nights of sleep ever.

First trip to Big Bear

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to thank Sherry for giving us the opportunity to stay at her cabin. Sherry, is pretty awesome, if you have a question, shes on it to answer you as soon as she can. It was our first time using VRBO and mos def is not going to be the last.

As we arrived, roads were a bit wet but was able to get to the property safely. As we're driving up to the property we were pretty stoked on its location, kind of on top of the hill and has a pretty long drive way. It was a winter wonderland arriving since it was surrounded by snow. There were some issues ( user error) on entering the property, the app on my phone was not cooperating so i suggest printing out what information is given.

Once, we were able to enter the cabin, eyes wide and jaws on the ground, HA! great open space and a POOL TABLE! We were able to situate ourselves quickly. Kitchen in the back and there was a corkscrew opener!

We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen plenty of space to get the meals out.

For the rooms, it can be a bit chilly but we were able to get more comfortable. A lot of leg room upstairs, great view when looking into the backyard from the master bedroom. If you're up there during the winter, be aware, toilet seats may be cold ;p, two full bathrooms.

Minutes away from Snow Summit, this was a bonus since we were there to snow board. It pretty much is walking distance but that is if you want to haul your gear up a hill by hand.

Overall, we had a nice getaway from San Diego, we were able to relax and just spending time together. I would mos def recommend this cabin to anyone trying to get away. Thank you again for everything Sherry! Mos def hearing from us again!

Not dealing with the owner again.

  • 2 of 5

Cabin is fine but the owner is not helpful. Did not receive my full refundable deposit back considering the cabin was left in perfect shape. Owner is not helpful with resolving this. Blames everything on Paypal fees and not the lack of a detailed contract and instructions. Do not call it a refundable deposit in the contract if you are going to refund only a part of it. Not going to deal with her again.

Owner's Response: Its very upsetting an untruthful review is allowed to be posted. My contract states when you use paypal there is a fee. He sent his deposit through paypal and paypal deducted 18.00. It wasn't me that kept the 18.00 it was paypal. When I went to refund his deposit I sent the full amount back that was in my account. He became very upset and said my contract wasn't clear. I am not sure how to make it any clearer. Please send a check that I hold uncashed. I never have anyone sending a deposit through paypal. Another traveler chose this method after him and when once again I pointed out the fees charged by paypal they instead sent a check and because it was within the time allowed paypal refunded there full amount. I have done this without an issue for the 9 years I have had this cabin. My contract is clear and I am sorry the renter can't read a basic contract. Its upsetting that all of the proof was sent to those in charge of this department and was told if it wasn't an outright case of extortion any one was allowed to post. Untruthful or Not! I am very disappointed in this traveler for an untruthful review after he had a great visit in my cabin. I have great reviews and have travelers return again and again year after year!
