About Jonathan Willick
My wife and our family are Canadians living in San Diego and we bought this little place to have somewhere to go with the family to get away from the city and experience a bit of winter fun like skiing and sledding. We love heading up to Big Bear whenever we have a free weekend, its a great place to visit year round and has a lot of beautiful scenery and things to do.
Jonathan Willick purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Jonathan Willick chose Big Bear Lake
Quiet cozy place up the mountain, great location for a quiet stay in the woods away from it all. Also walkable to Bear Mountain ski resort for skiing/snowboarding or mountain biking. Great place to relax year round.
What makes this Cabin unique
The place is an easy walk to Bear Mountain for anyone wanting to ski, you can go back and forth or go home for lunch and it is convenient with small children. There is also a lot of mountain biking in the area during the summer months. The deck has a great view of the trees and is a relaxing place to kick back and relax.

Everything was just as described. The place was very clean and stocked with more than expected. I've got a bad back and found the seating and bed not very comfortable but that is probably me more than the furniture.
Once up there and having a look around, this is SO MUCH better than the "other cheap, little cabins" advertised (tiny, tightly crowded, right off the busy road). If you want quiet and peaceful this is a great spot. I had a wonderfully relaxing time. Heck of a deal and it is a really nice place.
Cozy cabin , clean , convenient , charming
I love this cabin, it was lovely , clean , rustic and comfortable . Conveniently located close to snow summit. I do not understand the other reviews short of 5 stars . For the price you pay and given this is in big bear , this is truly nice . I have high standards , I am high maintenance —we frequently stay in 5 star resorts like Terranea and Bacara this cabin given the price have met even my high standards. Clean , cozy , charming , convenient , comfortable .
Thanks for staying with us, we're very happy you enjoyed our place!
Great little cabin
Our family had a great time while staying in the cabin.
It was charming, comfortable and you can't beat the location.
We would definitely stay again!
You get what you pay for
Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The biggest complaints I have is the outlet in the only bathroom doesn't work and the furniture in the house is very uncomfortable, my husband and I had a really hard time getting good sleep and sitting on the south trying to unwind after a day of exploring was pretty hard. The cabin is close to everything which is really awesome and the neighborhood itself is fairly quiet. We probably wouldn't stay in this cabin again.
I am very sorry about your stay and thank you for the feedback. I will definitely have someone take a look at that outlet. We actually just brought in the sofa bed in the living room and I am a little surprised you found it uncomfortable, its from Ikea and fairly new, my wife and I usually find their furniture to be pretty comfortable and we haven't had any other complaints but I will see what I can do, maybe some softer cushions or more pillows would help. Also the bed mattresses are from Ikea as well, they may not be super squishy but my wife and I prefer a slightly firmer mattress, I can see if I can get something a little softer.
A great find!
Jon's place was great, super cozy and perfect if you're coming up to ski. We walked to the lifts and back for lunch. I'd come back!
Thanks for the review!
Cozy Cabin - Great Location
We enjoyed our stay at the cabin for 2 days. We encountered 2 big issues, the driveway and the heating system. The driveway was full of snow and inconviniente, we had to shovel a space on top of the hill for parking, Jonathan did address this issue having someone sweep off the snow the next day. The heating system was not working when we got there, it needed a valve replacement. Jonathan managed to get someone and the issue was resolved in a couple of hours. Overall, amazing response from the owner. Tiny but super cozy cabin, met all our needs. The location is perfect, super close to Bear Mountain. I definitly recommend the owner, outstanding responsivness and very helpful.
Thanks for the review we always appreciate the feedback. Apologies for the driveway, it had just freshly snowed and it usually takes a little while before the snowplow company can come by so we keep a shovel there so guests can clear a little space a the top to park in the meantime. Unfortunately we had a part go out on the furnace right when you were there, the unit is a high efficiency model and only a few years old so I am a little surprised but sometimes these things happen. I had a hard time finding someone who could come by at night on such short notice but fortunately after many calls and a couple hundred dollars later (plus the discount I gave) we managed to get someone who fixed it or I would have paid to put you up somewhere else. Fortunately it all worked out and we'd love to have you again and I am sure we'll have better luck.
