Guestbook comments from the owner

Posted From Yelp.com under Vacation in the Village



Went here for a family vacation for an end-of-summer/Labor Day weekend. There were 23 of us & we fit very comfortably. I love that we're able to roam around between the two houses. The location is great; it's located in the middle of The Village so there are plenty of stores nearby. We took about 5-6 cars and there was more than enough parking. Even though it is so close to The Village, it was still fairly private and great for kids to play and not be worried about crowds or cars. The lake is within walking distance and close to a lot of other fun activities.



I also appreciated that the houses came included with different things, such as board games, DVDs, large TVs, pool table, foosball table, arcade basketball hoop thing, jacuzzi, and even something as simple as basic spices in the cabinet. Salt comes in handy!

Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a blast at this property over the weekend. Plenty of space for all of the people in our group. Wonderful location, the Village is such a fun place to be. The house had plenty of blankets, pullows and towels for everyone, beds were comfortable. Pool table and hot tub were great! Would give 5 stars except for minor issues with the fireplace, water heater & a leaky toilet. We will definitely rent this property again. Thank you!

Old property super close to the village

  • 3 of 5

This property is old, I believe one of the cabins is the oldest cabin in the villages. In the 4 bedroom unit there are 2 baths, the sitting are consists of 3 futons 2 of which were broken upon arrival and there is no table at all tonsit and eat at, no coffee table either. There is a bar made out of plywood down by the pool table but if you lean on it it will break. The second house has bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. They will tell you 3 bedrooms but you have to walk through what they refer to as the third bedroom to get to the other bedroom and great room area- it is a main passage way. In that house no one could get so distant hot showers. They did send a repair guy out two days in a row and he was super nice but admitted he couldn't understand what the problem was. Again this house has a lot of futons and many were either broken or had huge holes in the cushions. This is a property for college age or hound adults who want to ski all day spend evenings in the village and just need a place to crash. You will hear all the noise from the adjacent bar all night - we hear them dumping their trash through the early morning hours. You get whatbyou pay for was my motto while there with my family, this was by far the most affordable place for a group - every other option was at least double... however next time we decided we would split into two smaller groups rather than suffer.

Great for youth groups

  • 3 of 5

It was perfect for my youth age choir.. it is not modern and the kitchen is small. It was great to have a guy cabin and a girl cabin. The location was great except for a very loud bar!

Owner's Response: We are glad that overall you enjoyed your stay. Yes, the cabin is eclectic-rustic-chic... definitely not modern. We wanted to keep the overall "cabin" feel of the mountains, but with modern conveniences. Perhaps you'd enjoy a similar cabin in a quieter neighborhood that would still accommodate your group size. On your next trip to Big Bear check out the Lily Bear Lodge... www.vrbo.com/440424.

Great place for a wedding!!

  • 4 of 5

I had my wedding here in August 2016. This place is amazing! It makes for a truly unique wedding venue (and great pictures!). My family was able to stay in the cabins for the weekend and any other guest were able to stay close by. It made for a great time!! The property is well taken care of and there is plenty of room for everyone!!

The one complaint I have is regarding the communication with the facility coordinator. Often times it was very difficult to get ahold of her. She would not respond to my emails, so I would have to text her a few times before I would get a response. This caused a problem because I made decisions via text message, but on the day of the event those text messages were not able to be retrieved. I chose to have my guest sit on hay for the ceremony, and on the day of the wedding I was told that they were never told that. I remember having many conversations and text messages regarding the hay, but there was no way to prove that months later. It all ended up working out and everything turned out amazing, but it was just frustrating at times during the planning. I know the company is trying to grow, so I think once they get used to a bigger event load it will work out a lot smoother.

This day was the best day of my life, and I am so glad I chose this place to hold my wedding!

The property is in a perfect area of Big Bear love the convenience to everything around it..

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the property and Chantal was available when needed. The only thing I would recommend is to do some upgrades on the front home of the 2 properties & newer furniture. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Very cozy & perfect for a big family to enjoy.
