Lots of Space, but....

  • 2 of 5

We loved the location of this property. The space in each room was wonderful. Nice large sofa for each person to have a place to sit. Unfortunately, there were too many issues, starting with the ice packed driveway that had room for only one car! Slipping on the ice was a big problem. The property was not clear of ice all the way from the driveway, up the walkway, steps of the front porch and the porch itself. I slipped three times just walking into cabin for the first time. Thank heaven I arrived before my family, as there was a toddler and a newborn coming up. After calling maintenance at Big Bear Vacations for help, I started trying to clear the front porch. The ice was so thick I couldn't put a dent in it. (I am a 62 year old woman!) Maintenance man came and shoveled enough space that we could get our 2 cars in. The salt mixture he put on driveway didn't work, as it stayed frozen all 3 days we were there. He couldn't put salt on wood deck (understandable), but also didn't try to clear the porch either.

Heating the house took 3 hours. The bedrooms were boiling while the front room stayed comfortable.

As for the kitchen....we wanted a place that we could cook our meals in, so we would save money and didn't have to face the crowds in the restaurants, as it was a holiday weekend. Well, the cookware was disgusting. Teflon pots and pans were terribly scratched and unhealthy to use. The stainless steel pots and pans were filthy! There was no baking dishes, so no cornbread with our soup! Also, drinking out of plastic "glasses" was not great.

Couldn't use the game room, as it was freezing in there (converted garage) and small heater didn't put a dent in the cold air. So to say the least we will never be back. Sorry Pines and Needles.
