                                                              Winter Getaway

                                                              Mike D.

                                                              Everything was perfect and as advertised. Nice cozy little romantic cabin. The Jacuzzi was a nice solid 104°. The fireplace in the cabin heated the place up very quickly, as it was freezing outside. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a one bedroom spot for one couple. Thanks Guy! We will definitely be coming back!

                                                              Perfect Weekend Getaway

                                                              My boyfriend and I live busy lives in San Diego. This was a great place to getaway to for the weekend! Very cozy and close to all of the attractions. We loved the hot tub! We would definitely book again.

                                                              We had the best time at this perfect little cabin!! It was equipped with everything we needed including an awesome hot tub, wood burning heater, and a big front yard. The place was adorably decorated and VERY cozy! It was the perfect place to escape to for a few days and the town is great and super close. Definitely looking forward to visiting again soon :)

                                                              Cozy cabin perfect for a romantic weekend!

                                                              This little getaway was PERFECT! We stayed over New Years weekend and it was amazing. Nestled in a neighborhood just outside of town, quiet and pretty private. The hot tub was a total bonus and part of the reason we stayed. The bed was super comfortable with soft sheets, the couch was cozy and perfect for relaxing and the kitchen was completely equipped with anything you'd need. Thank you for including detergent for the washer/dryer! Had fun reading through your visitors journals as well! We can't wait to come back again for another relaxing weekend.

                                                              Note for future guests - we stayed 4 days, and didn't think about bringing extra shampoo/body wash. And, if you don't plan to do laundry, bring extra towels :)

                                                              Little getaway perfect for two

                                                              Stayed three nights with absolutely no complaints. This little cabin is perfect for two with all the necessities you need. Guy is extremely responsive making sure your needs are met. His recommendations for local restaurants were spot on. This cabin will likely be my first choice on our next trip to Big Bear Lake.

                                                              Magical Property Close to the Lake

                                                              Almost Paradise is a charming cabin, equipped with woody touches to make you feel like you have walked right into a fairytale. Immaculate with a wonderful grill and Jacuzzi, Almost Paradise is located close to town, the lake and all the trails, but with just enough distance from the town, so noise does not disrupt the magical setting. The owner has taken great measures to make sure the cabin complements the natural environment, so you truly can unwind in a forest setting that takes your breath away. It appears the owner has several equally charming and enchanting cabins in the area of various sizes, so definitely look at Almost Paradise and his other beautiful cottages and cabins. We were definitely thrilled with our pick and our dogs loved it too!
