Owner Tips

==========

(1) My family always takes freeway 38 going up and down from the back. It is a little bit longer distance but a lot less winding and less stressful for driving; kids would have a happier time in the back seats. And the scenery is beautiful. Freeway 18 is a shorter distance, but you have to drive pretty much on the cliff which I really don't enjoy.

(2) We rent ski equipment’s for the kids. We usually go to the rental shop at the corner of Big Bear Blvd and Moonridge, next to Walgreens. The store staff is very friendly and helpful. They open till 10pm so you could have your stuff ready in the previous night to save time. You could return before 9am with no charge. It is cheaper, less crowded, and more convenient than the resort rental.

(3) The free shuttle is just one block from my cabin, take the advantage and avoid the parking and walking in ski boots hassle.

(4) Bear Mountain ski resort is more kids friendly. It is considered the best ski resort in southern California for family, called ‘The People’s Park’. Long, nice and easy slopes for beginner, manmade bumps for more fun. Very nice beginner ski and snowboard schools for kids and adults.

5. The Goldmine Golf Course is one block from my cabin, you can walk there in 3 minutes.

Activities at Big Bear

================

- Skiing, snowboard, snow play, tubing, sled

- Biking, Segway, zip lining, helicopter flights

- Fishing, water ski, boating, Aqua flight

- Golf, Hiking, Horseback riding

- Zoo, Arcade indoor fun, museum, Discovery Center

- Shopping for mountain furniture and decoration, antique

- Gourmet food, restaurant, café, bakery, sweets, wine and drinks

The Big Bear Alpine Zoo

===================

It is a nice and educational place for adults and kids, easily to spend 2-3 hours there. 100% of all the zoo animals are injured or orphaned wild animals and 90% are released back into nature. Those that remain with on exhibit are either too injured or have been imprinted by humans and cannot be released back into the wild to care for themselves. You will be amazed to see the mountain lions, wolfs, bald eagles, bears of course, and a lot of others.

The property is located in a good area but the in side of the house needs to be fixed a little bit carpet , couches outlets to that electricity and I think you should have provided cable TV and a TV in each room

Great getaway location for family. Responsive and considerate owners.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this nice cabin which is centrally located and very close proximity to Ski resorts, Shopping, Super-markets, Restaurants and Entertainment. The unit is well furnished and very well kept (condition). Great views from the Bedrooms and Living area. The Kitchen, Dining and Bathroom fixtures. Its perfect if you are taking your kids and teenagers. The internet connection was a huge plus. Sufficient to park two cars in the drive way and extra parking area behind the cabin. Its close to the lake. I would highly recommend if you need a getaway with family & friends. The owners are very responsive and considerate.

Amazing location and thoughtful owners

  • 5 of 5

We booked this kid friendly unit close to Bear Mountain Ski resort looking forward to a good snowboard trip weekend over January 20-23. As it turned out it was the weekend of a snow blizzard and we couldn't get up the mountain on Friday. The owners were thoughtful and suggested we drive up Saturday morning when it was expected to be sunny, and expressed flexibility on checkout to help us enjoy the unit. After a grueling 8 hour drive Saturday we arrived late Saturday frustrated with the road closures due to the storm. But the nice clean unit with its great view soothed us and made it worthwhile. The kids enjoyed the foosball and the unit was cozy. Due to storms and wind we were not able to snowboard so the unit was our place of refuge, and it was our saving grace. When we were ready to check out our car was buried in snow and owner was very considerate and got a plow to come out and remove the snow and pave our way out. We are thankful for this great cozy home and the owners who hand held us through the storm. Hope to go back in better weather!

Bummed out

  • 2 of 5

We were pretty psyched to do a few days in a house while in CA. We were quickly let down when we got there. Right out of the gate the water was turned off. It only took an hour or so to get it turned back on but that was just the start. Clearly no one had been here since winter. There were Christmas decorations still up in the house and spiderwebs, spiders and ants everywhere. Food crumbs and grape stems on the floor. Luckily I had time to vacuum while I waited for the water to come back on.

The backyard was waist high grass with rules to not use the yard (per the city I was told????). The rear deck is falling apart and totally not usable.

There were not enough pillows and even fewer pillow cases. We needed to use the shams as pillows.

Definitely didn't love the place. The description is a bit of a sham itself. You can find somewhere better to stay.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, Thank you for your feedback. My credit card was compromised therefore the water auto-payment was stopped. The water company shut the water off when missing payment. I had it turned on within an hour when you arrive in the afternoon. You are right I don't live there. But there were guests in summer and the cleaning company did do the job each time. Unfortunately there is no way to stop spiders anywhere in CA, but the cleaning company had double checked that there was no ant in the cabin. In terms of Christmas decoration, there was only one table pad with Santa print, somehow it was left in the living room, according to the cleaning company. Since we never had any big Christmas decoration anyway, I do believe this was the case. "Food crumbs and grape stems on the floor.", the cleaning company denied the claim. You and I spoke a couple of times when you were waiting for the water, I wish you had told me when you called me so that I could send the cleaning company. "The backyard was waist high grass with rules to not use the yard (per the city I was told????)." I'm amazed by your 'waist high grass' description, I'm not aware of any type of back yard wild grass could grow waist hight. It's clearly stated on the agreement that you are at your own risk when accesing the backyard. ... ... I'm really sorry for you negative experience! There is nothing falling apart, Big Bear City won't issue me permit if anything is falling apart. Best Regards, Shirley
