About Vacasa, CA- Inland Empire Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Lovely Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. The bedrooms were comfortable, lots of space in the living room and the pool table upstairs was amazing. You can't beat the view!!!!

Castle Glen location

  • 3 of 5

Overall experience was decent. The home for the most part was nice and updated. Maybe my expectations were too high on the quality of certain items in the home (Pots and pans being disgusting, coffee machine being filthy, and certain appliances not working)? For those wanting to book through vacasa know they will charge you a cleaning fee but tell you to place dishes and laundry in the dishwasher/washing machine prior to leaving to “help them out”. Additionally, they require you to take out all of your trash upon leaving the cabin. Why am i paying a cleaning fee if I’m required to do all of these things? Last but not least, they put up signs to not lean on the outside handrails due to them being weak etc... but the signs would never be seen if you didn’t actually walk all the way around the porch area. They have one sign posted and it’s hidden in the corner in an area you probably wouldn’t go check. The couches and seats in the living room are old and weathered. Aside from what I described above it’s a nice place to stay at.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, Big Bear does not have trash pick-up, so guests are required to take out their own trash per city ordinance. We do not require our guests to clean after their stay but do suggest guests start laundry if they have a chance before departing. The kitchen is scheduled for a deep clean which should address any kitchen issues. Thank you!

This Cabin has a beautiful view from the upstairs lounge window to the outside patio, the home is entertaining and has everyrhing you need to enjoy a relaxing time, all you need to basically bring is your own food. Would defenitely stay here again.

Great Location and View, Tired Property, Poor up keep. Would Not stay again

  • 2 of 5

We went here with 3 adults and 4 children, between age 4 and 7 years. The location is lovely, quiet, great views and close to amenities however we had many issues with the actual house. <br />

Holes in Dining room chairs- like the size of really old Cigar burns and also What looks like cigarette holes in Master Bedroom bed linen. <br />

Awful sofa bed, all split and so old even 5 years olds couldn't sleep on it let alone an adult. The duvet feathers were falling out, and if you have anyone prone to allergies do not stay here. Carpet everywhere including in the bathrooms. Very dated, and although clean on the surface, its really needs a good deep clean. Felt very tired, and the Christmas decorations, although a nice thought, some still had the price tags on, little care is given. Too many dusty fake flowers, and creepy photos everywhere. the location is great. but we wouldn't stay here again.<br />

It just needs to have less stuff inside, and updated on small simple things like basic kitchen equipment that isnt all chipped and worn, all new cotton bed linen, and a general over haul. <br />

Big bear is amazing though.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed to see this guest had any issues with their stay. The owner has just replaced the bed in the master with a brand new king sized bed, new linens, and new comforter. We will make sure all price tags are removed from the decor, and we have advised the owner of the comments regarding the sleeper sofa and chairs. Thanks!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location up in the mountains you see the lake if you take a little walk up the mountain next to the garage, you have a great view of the sunset and the the forest the only thing that was some upsetting is that you have to walk around the garage to get to the grill and hot tube

A Must have

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early November. Not much to see or to do. The water level in the big bear lake was too low to do anything fun.<br />

But this particular property is a must have if you plan to go there for vacation. Nice pretty neighborhoods and surroundings. Big balconies with two sides of Mountain View’s. We had seen wonderful sunset and sunrise on the nearby hill. A great place to enjoy peace without driving out.
