About Roger Herrick

Hi. My name is Roger Herrick and I have been involved in the San Bernardino mountain area since 1964 when my large family bought a cabin about this size. I have loved the mountain communities and have been involved in year round activities for over 50 years.

Roger Herrick purchased this house in 2010

Why Roger Herrick chose Big Bear

This one has the views. A Great Chalet is waiting for you. We restored to better than new condition and kept the Mountain Alpine charm. Perfect for the winter and summer sports people. Great parking and a fenced back yard for your pets. A weekend getaway for a breath of fresh air. Perhaps a romantic evening. The chalet has great kitchen that is ready for your cooking skills.

Many happy memories and we welcome you back to our Big Bear oasis.

What makes this house unique

Great weekend getaway. The views are great along with the large decks on the front and back. This cabin is a great value. You can enjoy the mountain cabin without owning it.

The cabin was as we expected

  • 4 of 5

If you read the reviews, you'll see the comments regarding the lack of curtains. Those comments are accurate, but really weren't a big deal for us. We just couldn't sleep in as long as we'd have liked. We had a great time and had good communication with Roger. Very recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the cabin. The curtains were added upstairs. Also there are new wood floors. We are working constantly to improve the property and our guest experience. We look forward to your return visit. With many return visitors year after year on the calendar that says something about their experience.

Cute and charming cabin. Perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was great. We did have a little hiccup when we first arrived, but Roger was extremely kind and was very helpful. There was so much snow! It was gorgeous. The only thing I would recommend is that he get a shovel for the property. Other than that such a great time. It's warm and cozy and the perfect distance from the mountain!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive response. It was a little bobble when you arrived. However, four feet of snow was the barrier. You handled it well and minutes later the heat system was on. Great job Heather and crew. Please come back for your next adventure. Roger

We take our grandchildren to Big Bear each year. This was the first time I had rented this cabin.

We opened the door and found bleach had been poured on the floor. Puddles of bleach all over.

After wiping up the bleach I checked the cabin. It had not been cleaned.

Refrigerator had not been cleaned. Food and liquid spills were on the shelves. Cheetos were on the floor in several places. The sofa in the living room was filthy! It looked like hot chocolate had been spilled on it. There were 5 of us but they only give you two bath towels.

I called the owner after we got home to inform him of the condition the cabin was in. He never returned my call. There are many affordable, clean cabins in Big Bear. This is not one of them.

Owner's Response: No phone call was ever made. We have been and we are responsible property owners. We do everything we can to keep the place clean and ready for travelers. She was told there are towels for only two she might've wanted to bring more towels. It always amazes me how negative some people can be on blind reviews. I wonder if the cheetos were left from her grandchildren. It's a great little cabin and I do everything I can to keep it up and keep it clean. We do use some bleach to clean the bathroom. Could be a comment left by the big bear cabin company.
