Guestbook comments from the owner

Re-Posted from Airbnb:

The owner whom I met upon checkin, has a wonderful place. Perfect place for a retreat, family vacation, ANY OCCASION for groups. It's in a perfect location right next to shops and restaurants and close to the mountain for ski/snowboarding. Cabin was clean, had what we needed, and artistically beautiful. Staff is very helpful and I would recommend this cabin.

We loved the place last year and came back once again.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay once again. However, we were very disappointed that the jacuzzi did not work and blinds were not closing properly to protect our privacy. We were notified it would be repaired but we never heard back again. Also, the music is very loud from the bar, so keep that in mind.

Best Family Reunion we have had!

  • 4 of 5

We had family members and guests from Ohio, Michigan, Oregon, California, Wisconsin, and Idaho and everyone had a great time. The compound was safe, the small kids could play without any parent worries, and everyone had space to be alone or play with cousins. The idea of being in the Village did not appeal to us but as we found out how close we were to stores, restaurants, shops, coffee houses, etc., we realized we had made the best choice for the families and children. We were concerned about no air conditioning at first but then we realized how cool it got in the evenings and everyone slept well! We had a minor problem with ants getting into things and the facility not being as clean as it could be, but the Cottage Lane facility really worked out for us and everyone had a great time! There was ample parking and we had no security issues! We felt safe at 654 Cottage Lane!

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...
