About Thomas Pierre

I am a school teacher and wrestling coach. I am not able to use the cabin on the weekends in the winter due to my coaching responsibilities

Thomas Pierre purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Thomas Pierre chose Big Bear Lake

My daughter and I visited Big Bear for months before we stumbled on the perfect mountain getaway for us.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin was a fixer upper, I am handy and enjoy remodeling. After many years of intense work this labor of love is now our home away from home. My daughter is older now and not as available. My family lives out of state, so friends and I get ways are limited.

Renter beware!

  • 2 of 5

This is the first negative review I have ever given to a vacation rental. Although the location was great and the price reasonable there were to many unacceptable problems. I Came up with my grandkids looking for a pleasant summer vacation. The first bathroom had a constant leak from behind the toilet which soaked the floor for the whole week. The bathroom became too smelly and dangerous to use. The bath tub vibrated and rumbled when turned on. It was also missing a handle, so we couldn't use it. The second bathroom had a clogged toilet which overflowed and came up through the shower. Completely unsanitary. A plumber came and said they had the same problem with the previous renter. The plumber posted a sign and instructed us not to not use toilet paper in the toilet. What a dilemma, now we have no bathrooms to use!

The TV cable reception on the main TV was not working. It took three days for cable company to come out and repair. The serviceman spent over two hours to fix the problem. Wooden rail slats in the upstair front balcony were separating from floor frame. Broken wood dinning room chair was found. You could tell other chairs were glued together in the same place. Broken beer bottle found under bed . Rusted out non functional bar b que.

I notified the owner when I discovered the bathroom issues and in all fairness he did promptly respond to these concerns. However it was too little to late. We could no longer stay under these unsafe and unsanitary conditions. Hopefully these issues will be resolved so this cabin can be enjoyed by future renters.

Property was great but in need of serious maintenance

  • 4 of 5

The property has tons of space and a great selection of movies and games. It definitely served the purpose of keeping us out of the snow but the place needs a lot of work. The down stairs had no power and was freezing until we located the circuit braker and reset the power. The shower basically floods the bathroom because the curtain is too small and it doesn't block all the water from coming out of the shower and pooling up on the floor. The roofing on the outside is broken and falling off in one area and is in danger of tugging on the power lines. Other than these things though, the cabin was great, so after a little upkeep, I would stay here again.

Cozy Big Bear rental centrally located

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was just as described and viewed in the pictures. It was located close to Snow Summit and the Village which was really convenient when you want to get out and do some activities or walk around and get food. The cabin was fully furnished with everything you need for your stay including extra blankets, plates, bowls, pots/pans and cooking utensils. It had enough room to fit our 3 families but the living room was a bit cozy. There aren't any instructions so we couldn't figure out how to work the tv but there are DVDs that we were able to watch and plenty of board games available which was nice because we were all forced to actually spend time together enjoying each others company.

Overall the place is really great. It had enough room to fit us all. The 1 bathroom ended up not being an issue and there looked to be enough parking for up to 5 cars if needed. No major issues that we found. The host was easy to get a hold of and very friendly and helpful and getting into the place when we checked in was very easy.

Great for groups

  • 4 of 5

The place was perfect for our group consisted of 3 families. There was plenty of room. We had children ages from 3-15 with us and the place was perfect for them Very close to Snow summit for those who are likes to snowboard or ski. Nearby food places too like McDonalds. There are few things that should be repaired and organized but it didnt bother us at all. We will definitely rent this cabin back again.

House Fell Apart

  • 1 of 5

Visited with large group excited to be together and enjoy Big Bear. By the end of the couple days, we had discovered a multitude of broken and dangerous aspects of the cabin. The fridge handle was taped on, the toilet clogged multiple times, the floor board was loose, shower very difficult to use, heat was complicated, chair broke while sitting in it, sink would not work. Tried to explain these things to the owner and was laughed at. Very unhelpful and not understanding how frustrating these issues were for our group.

Owner's Response: The only contact I received from this guest during their stay was "great cabin, what is wifi code?" I contacted the guest after their stay to report a wallet was found. I arranged a pick up over New Years. The client contacts me several days later demanding a full refund. Her reasoning was they could not figure out how to use the heater and the kitchen faucet was hot water only. I had maintenance check out her issues and they found everything to be in working order. The heater is brand new and is adjusted by pushing the arrow up or down on the thermostat. The faucet may have been moved out of position, but maintenance found it to be fully operational. A call or email during their stay could have easily aleveated her difficulties. The toilet issues may have been caused by 10+ travelers using one toilet. The client stayed the entire time and left the place a disaster. Garbage was left behind, dishes left dirty, and throw up had to be cleaned around the toilet. I have a minimum age requirement of 25 and a limit of 10. I took her concerns very seriously and immediately contacted maintenance. After getting the maintenance report and hearing from housekeeping the condition they left the cabin I told her I could not grant her a refund. If she was not satisfied I recommended she contact VRBO and file a complaint, which she did. VRBO contacted me and I filed a response with the maintenance report. She was not awarded any refund. She was greatfull she got her wallet back and insisted she was going to give the housekeeping crew a reward for returning her wallet on a holiday. They did not receive any promised reward. I have a minimum age requirement of 25 that was not followed. My cabin has been booked solid during the winter season for several years and all my reviews (expect this one) has been 5 *. I am acknowledged as a helpful and conscientious host. I feel this review is retaliatory, and I believe this group of college age travelers were looking for a free weekend. I have been fortunate, the majority of my guests treat my property with respect, as if it were their own. I enjoy providing my home reasonably priced to others to enjoy in a tranquil mountain setting. Unless you want problems, I would not advise renting to this client.
