Beautiful big house with everything our group of ten needed to have an epic weekend.

  • 5 of 5

From drinking our morning coffee on the front porch swing, to playing foose ball and pool and darts with a cold beer, to playing games around the big dining room table, to the meals we cooked on the bbq and in the big kitchen, to the hot tub, and the big cozy beds.... nothing disappointed. We absolutely enjoyed every minute of our time at the Kodiak lair. 10 of us fit perfectly! It was an amazing weekend.

Roomy and Fun

  • 5 of 5

Brought a group of 12 to Kodiak Lair for Thanksgiving and had a blast. Great location, very roomy, and tons of fun in the game room. Nice fenced in yard for the dog too. Kitchen was very well stocked and accommodated preparing a Thanksgiving meal for 12 people. Scott and Karen were excellent hosts and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone with a large group.

This house is a perfect Big Bear rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families in this great home for a four day weekend. The kitchen is well stocked and the home is incredibly comfortable. Lots of extra beds and towels. The hot tub was ready and heated for our arrival! The home had TVs in every room. The 4 kids loved the pool table downstairs! Very comfortable and we will rent again! Great proximity to the ski slopes grocery store and town! We loved every minute of it!

Best hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our trip had lots of obstacles to Big Bear due to Caltrans closing all the road because of snow storm. We eventually couldn't make it the night we planned for bit Scott and Karen went out of their way to help us. They always picked up their phone and tried everything to accommodate us. Although our plans didn't goniur way, Scott and Karen made us feel welcomed. Thank you!

we have rented a great number of houses up in Big Bear and this one is easily my favorite. It was very spacious (we had 6 adults and 4 kids including young twins) and plenty of room inside and outside the house. Everything we needed except for food was provided. The only bummer was that there was no snow....and certainly the property can't be held responsible for that!

Will definitely stay here again. I can wait in fact.
