  • 5 of 5

Our family including my parents stayed at The ironwood Chalet... We loved every minute.. It was gorgeously decorated and very clean.. We had everything we needed and the house is very close to the village.Not to mention great hiking near by. It was spacious and cozy with fireplaces on every floor. I would love to come back to this perfect getaway in big bear!

Great place for families with kids!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house with 2 other families; 6 adults and 6 kids. However the layout of the home is very well spread out and there was plenty of room. The homeowners were very thoughtful for having lots of DVDs, games a high chair, a walker, playpen, stroller and lots of other handy items for smaller kids to enjoy. The spa was great and offered a great view. We never used the fireplaces but that would have been fantastic as well.

If you plan to walk please note house sits at the top of the hill so plan on coming back with enough energy to carry kids or bring the stroller!

The kitchen is very large but we found the oven bakes things very quickly and we burned a few items before we got the hang of it. The stove burners were a little funky as well we could only get one of them to work. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans.

The location is great for the views but we found walking down to the lake was disappointing because there is not much to do once you are there (we went in March so maybe that was the problem).

The house was clean but it could have been cleaner with dust in a few areas, but hey we have kids so that was not a problem for us!

Overall we had a fantastic time in Big Bear and at the house. We would surely rent it again.

Thanks to the homeowners for offering this great property. The layout is so great for large groups.

Nice cabin home

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house with good location being close to the lake, slopes, and the village. Check-in was easy and seamless. There is plenty of room and love that 3 of the bedrooms are master bedrooms. Would definitely love to stay at this home again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

Long time VRBO clients. We were looking for a good location for a family reunion. Always love Big Bear and found the Ironwood Chalet. Truly a large and beautiful home, close to the Village and wonderful view of the lake. All the amenities to walk right in and enjoy the getaway. The owner Kristie was great. She accommodated our needs and quickly responded all our questions before and during our stay. We even enjoyed 3" of new snow our last night. This is a awesome home, one to which we could easily return.

not clean and no warning for broken bedroom door that locked our kids in a room and scared them

  • 1 of 5

This house was beautiful from the pictures and pretty on the outside and the owner seemed okay to deal with beforehand but there was a lack of cleanliness on the inside of this house. There were cobwebs in every room on the ceilings and hanging from almost every sconce and light fixture in the dining areas and kitchen. Also the exhaust grill above the refrigerator is covered in grease and dirt as there is no exhaust fan above the stove. The microwave is half broken and doesn't light up and doesn't swivel. Also, we were told to do a load of dishes and laundry before we left but we were left with zero soap. Also there was a lot of snow and all they had in their garage was a plastic shovel to help us. We ended up getting snowed in and had to pay someone $300 to get us out. Also the owners should alert winter visitors that when it is snowing, there is no street parking or you will get towed and you can't park in the driveway either as our cars got stuck. There were not enough towels for everyone and most of the pots, pans and baking sheets were in horrible condition and we were unable to use them. Also several light bulbs were burned out and made the house very dark. The worst two things was that the upstairs bedroom door is broken and if you shut the door you can't open again an our kids got stuck in there and it was very scary. Finally, the guest book by the door is FULL of guest complaints much like ours. I suggest the owners actually read the complaints and take care of the items and then remove the entries from this book as they are mostly all negative. We have stayed through VRBO for the last 3 years and never had a problem. For the amount of money we paid to stay somewhere nice, this wasn't even close. We feel we were overcharged. I wrote to VRBO to complain and they said the owner needs to respond and as of today, we have not heard back. I even sent them several photos of the dirt and cobwebs. Based on the owners lack of response, I would not recommend others stay here.

Owner's Response: Hi Shanna, I sincerely apologize that you did not enjoy your stay at the Ironwood Chalet and feel I was not helpful with your needs. I am surprised by this because when I spoke to you on the phone after you checked out, you made no mention of being unhappy. I looked back at your message board and it shows that I responded to your message within 15 minutes about the one plant having a spider web and that you couldn't figure out how to turn on a light fixture. That is the only complaint I received from you and thought it was addressed. We have a company that comes in once a month specifically to clean the cobwebs and replace lightbulbs. There must have been a very busy spider right before you checked in :-). I also responded to VRBO within an hour of you making a complaint to them with a summary but perhaps they didn't relay that to you since it was a week after your checkout. Prior to your stay I sent you a very detailed information sheet stating that there is absolutely no street parking and that we can accommodate 4 cars(2 in garage and 2 in driveway). I also let you know in this sheet (and its noted before you make a reservation) that we offer a snow removal service with 72 hour notice. Maybe you didn't read the sheet or just forgot about it....This is the first I have heard of the lock not working in the Master bedroom. Thank you for letting me know. I have already contacted maintenance to address this issue. The rest of your complaints baffle me. Since we received excellent reviews from the guest that stayed before you and the guest that stayed after you, Im going to chalk it up as you just can't please some people. I hope you were able to enjoy some of your trip with your family.
