Guestbook comments from the owner

Date of Stay November 27, 2013

Helpful votes:1/1.

We stayed over the Thanksgiving holiday with another family. 4 kids ages 5-11. There was tons for them to do, indoors and out, never heard the I'm bored complaint. We cooked lots there, including Thanksgiving dinner. The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed. Lots of great features, like a double oven made for an easy day of cooking. The kids enjoyed the sleds (there's a little hill right in the front of the house for sledding), snowman building kits, jacuzzi... We would definitely stay here again. Owners were super attentive to our needs, even over the holiday.

Great stay! Just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time up in big bear! We stayed at the house most of the time because we had everything we needed there. It was the perfect combination of cozy and fun. We also liked how it wasn't in a busy area close to town, it did make it a little inconvenient when we did want to go into town though. We were glad we were able to stay at the house on such short notice! Would definitely rerent if need be!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. The kitchen has every small appliance imaginable (including waffle iron), pots and pans, lots of plates and utensils, with Jennaire and Viking major appliances. We have 2 extra guests for brunch, but plenty of room and kitchen items.

We went to a wedding and there were 8 adults, 2 children, and 2 infants. We had a glitch with the thermostat and it was addressed right away and got nice and toasty for the babies. There is a pot belly stove in the living room that is the fireplace. The men had a relaxing time in the spa following a day of festivities.

The only suggestion I would have is for the owner to get a nice rolling clothes rack in the master bedroom, as there is no closet. You can use one downstairs, but to run up and down is a kind of a pain. It was ok since we were just there for the week-end, we hung our clothes on the door knob, but if we were staying a while it would be an inconvenience.

That being said, I highly recommend this house and hope to return sometime in the summer for a longer time, when the kids and grand kids can enjoy the lake. Did I mention the wonderful kitchen!

Our family Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family couldn't of selected a better cabin four our family weekend get away. The cabin was perfect! It's cozy and comfortable, makes you feel at home. Not to mention it was clean! We all had a great time and are looking forward to return next year. Although is approximately 15-20 minutes from Big Bear Village, the drive wasn't a problem for us and it's what we liked the most. It's away from the crowd and noise. The kids had a fun time playing with some of the snow still left in the front and backyard of the property. It's the best Cabin in its surrounding. We definitely would recommend to our friends and other relatives.

A beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do it justice! We spent Thanksgiving here with my family and my sisters family and it was great. Lots of room for 4 adults and 5 children. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed. The master was very spacious. The wood burning stove kept us very cozy. There was snow when we pulled up and it snowed the night before we left making it an even better stay! Our kids had a blast. Would definitely stay here again.
