About Ski House Rentals

I am owner of Ski House Rentals, we have accommodated over 20 thousands guests in the past 8 years, we manage and maintain Tao cabin professionally. We have a good customer survey scores in housekeeping and property condition.

Ski House Rentals purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Ski House Rentals chose Inland Empire

Running Springs is a very small village between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake. It is located 2 miles from Snow Valley ski resorts and 11 miles from Big Bear Lake ski resorts. Unlike other cabins in Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake city, you will not see many people in Running Springs, and it is only 60 miles from LA and San Diego. It is my home in the nature when I need a break from city life.

What makes this cabin unique

Due to my cabins' unique location, you may ski in the morning at Big Bear Lake, and enjoy the high quality evening life in Lake Arrowhead on the same day. Beside the peace and comfort during your stay, when you are ready to go back to the city, you will be ahead of all the traffic from Big Bear Lake. All the major cities in the Redland are only 20 minutes drive from Tao Cabin.

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay. Everything we needed was available. I would recommend getting a generator since we didn't have power on two different days for a few hours. Fortunately we were able to turn up the fireplace to keep the house warm since the heater did not work when the power was out. Overall we really enjoyed it and would definitely go back.

Surprise to find Running Springs

  • 4 of 5

This is the third cabin we rented from this company, we booked in the last minutes, turns out pretty cool. Running Springs is nice to visit in the Fall. We think it is better than Big Bear. By the way, all 3 cabins we stay are clean and in good conditions. We might visit again

Nice area, we like to return

  • 4 of 5

Well, the first visit in Running Springs, Snow valley area. It turns out pretty good, it is not like Big bear lake city, but it is small and quite, it doesn't have many restaurants, specially has no Asian food, we ended up cook for every meal. By the way, Snow Vally Ski resort is good for beginner...

Owner's Response: Snow Valley Ski resort is only 2 miles from Tao cabin #2, It is better for family, kids and beginners. If you like to go Snow summit ski resort in Big Bear, you will pass by Tao cabin #2 anyway. Lot of our customers find convenient to stay in Snow Valley and Ski at Big Bear. Recently year, there are more Asian families going up there, just for your information, there is no any Asian restaurants in Snow Valley and Running Spring area, and at this point, we don't have rice cooker in any of Tao cabins yet.

Better than hotel for sure!

  • 4 of 5

Management made us feel very welcome. There was a sign outside of our door to welcome us, and we were greeted warmly even though we got in later than we expected. The place was fantastic! It was exactly how the listing said it would be, and it was better than any hotel room! The neighborhood was quiet and very residential. The place is ideally located near the lake, and Lake Arrowhead.

Good area to play snow

  • 4 of 5

Our group rented all 3 cabins from owners for this weekend, this one is actually next to a season lake, there is huge open space to play snow. We like it during the snow storm, there are lost of sleep beds inside the cabin. By the way, the second floor bathroom is very nice.

Good to find this place

  • 4 of 5

Great location! We walked to dinner almost every night from Arrowbear lake music camp. The place was cozy with all the necessary kitchenware for staying in too. Super comfy bed. My husband and I enjoyed our week trip!

My kids go to music camp there, I will return this cabin for sure. By the way, there was a dog nearby made lots of noise in the night though, not sure property owner can do anything for this. Well, we feel good over all.
