Fun Cabin, Good location

  • 4 of 5

Our Family (2 adults and 2 kids) had plenty of room. There are some rough things about the Cabin. Floor coverings are coming loose in several locations, porch and back yard aren't great places for kids to play outside. Though we would stay here again for it's proximity to everything.

Wonderful stay is this cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this cabin. When we had a question, we contacted the owners and they were very fast to respond to our question. Some of the older reviews said that the pull out bed was gross. They must have upgraded the pull out couch since then because it was very clean and new. My 8 year old daughter was very comfortable during the night. We had our two kids with us so it was a nice surprise seeing the variety of games under the tv! Overall we would definitely stay here again and recommend this cabin to others.

Cozy Cabin, Great Location!!!

  • 4 of 5

Cozy cabin and great location, one step away from everything, very clean, well kept,enjoyed very much the neighborhood, the only thing I would have liked it had was a dryer, the snow clothes get very wet very quickly and there is no way of drying them, other than that I fell in love with it..... :)

Cozy Bear = comfy bear!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable. We loved the Cozy Bear Cabin - it was clean, secure, met our needs. Very close to town, and the Lake. The neighbors were nice and the owner responded promptly to any email. It was easy for me to put together meals I had packed for the trip with the dishes/utensils in the kitchen. We would definitely stay here again.

Overall, a great and cozy cabin for a couple or small family! Close to skiing and lake views!

  • 4 of 5

I was glad that I was able to stay at the Cabin. Initially the cabin was not available for the weekend however after contacting the owner, they were more than accommodating for my schedule. The cabin was the perfect size for my group. The cabin was everything I expected to be and the pictures matched everything. The cabin was cozy and warm upon arrival, we had to shovel just a bit of snow due to the snow storm the night before. Parking was available for my car, the water was easy to turn on. The fireplace was wonderful and the bed and couch were comfy. The couch was a bit dusty, however it was clean overall. The kitchen was great for cooking. The only feedback I had was the bathroom was a bit dusty and could use updated floor rugs. Other than that it was very clean, towels and sheets were clean. A great neighborhood and easy access to main street and ski areas. We were even able to take neighborhood roads to avoid traffic on Big Bear Blvd. Great place to stay, I would highly recommend it and I would definitely stay again! Thank you so much for accommodating my stay. I have been sharing my great experience with friends and would highly recommend!

Outside-there were some things to work on, inside-was very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 2 nights with my wife and 3-month old. Easy Access. Directions and instructions were easy to follow. Exactly what we were told to expect. We enjoyed our time there and we were very comfortable. If I had to nit pick, I would say to fix the holes in the screens on the windows and to maybe put a shade on the front window for more privacy but other than that it was a nice stay. We would come back!
