Good house is held back by it's furnishing
The rental agency was truly great: Responded to a few problems we had promptly: no kettel, TV not working, no sitting area furniture on the balconies.
The house has good DNA, but is held back by inadequate inside. The carpet is torn by the entry and is of cheap quality, the furnishing is upholstered and old, so it's dusty. The bed mattresses are of low quality, our entire party was not comfortable sleeping. Some available extra comforters, when used, put out lots of dust and feathers.
However the house is well located, great views (although there is a cul de sac in front of the view), open floor plan, 2 sitting areas, multiple TVs, although only one is modern, and 2 usable large balconies. This place has great potential, but needs some work to upgrade the inside, especially the beds.
We still enjoyed our stay, but it could have been better.
Very well-equipped, clean, nice cabin with beautiful view. Lots of space for 13 people. We enjoyed it a lot. Check in & out is a breeze. Thanks Destination Big Bear and Nick. Will definitely stay here again.
Awesome time...Awesome views!
My best friend and I had an amazing time in Big Bear...she coming from Texas and me from the Antelope Valley...for a girls' weekend adventure! Starlight Lodge is a fantastic home with a beautiful view of the lake from its perch atop Starvation Flats. In fact, I hope to return to the same home with my family for a nice long weekend, as well. It was clean, well stocked and most definitely would accommodate many more people with its four bedrooms and five bathrooms!!!
The only recommendations I would have would be to replace the antiquated television sets throughout. The picture on the set that we were able to get to work was very very poor quality. Thank goodness for Ipads... Though the internet for the home was rather poor as well. I used my phone as a hotspot and was able to more aptly use all my devices. Finally, my friend and I really, really enjoy sitting out on a patio whenever we meet in Big Bear, which is typically at least two times per year. While Starlight Lodge has three incredible patios, there were no chairs...other than about four or five white plastic chairs...and no tables. It was a bit surprising that a home this nice, with views this awesome, did not have patio furniture on the lovely decks...which, by the way, appeared to have been freshly painted.
Nevertheless, despite these minor "inconveniences", the house was awesome; our stay was awesome; and I would definitely stay there again! Also, the staff of Destination Big Bear were wonderful!!! There was a problem with the back sliding door not having a proper lock and Bill, with maintenance at DBB, came by and fashioned a dowel for the door in less than ten minutes, so that that we felt secure!
Despite the "issues" noted...all of which were minor, the home really is fantastic...especially for larger groups. As I said, I will be back :)
