This was the perfect getaway for our family of three and a dog from Cerritos about two hours away. We stayed three nights over Easter. The area is far enough away from town to make it peaceful, yet just a short drive to groceries or restaurants.
Upon arrival we were greeted with a envelope with our names printed on it full of information about the cabin and the local area. Our dog had a new toy waiting for her from Noodles the owners dog, nice touch. The home is nicely decorated with mountain décor and the most cushioned carpet I have ever walked on. The couch is a large sectional big enough for six people. We did not use the sleeper sofa. A foosball table was in the living room, and the largest selection of DVD movies I have ever seen. A big picture window looks out of the living room towards the lake. I could just envision watching an electrical storm from the couch with the lights off. (we had great weather, no storm) The dining room had a very large table. The kitchen, dining and living room are all open concept so it is easy to visit with each other or watch TV while cooking.
The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed including hot cocoa, microwave popcorn, and dog treats another nice touch. Several different plate sets and drink ware to chose from. Microwave, dishwasher, stove, oven, gas grill on the deck the list goes on.
The bedrooms were cozy and the bedding was the most comfortable bed I have slept on in a vacation rental. There were plenty of extra blankets and pillows to choose from.
One bathroom with a large shower and extra towels. Do bring your own toiletries.
The back deck was large with a nice table and chairs, we ate most of our meals outside. Access to a fenced in dog run from deck. You could see a sliver of the lake through the trees off the deck. The lake was very low due to drought, so on a normal year we may have been able to see more water. The lake is walking distance, but you do need a car to get around the city. This cabin is small, but every space is maximized to give you all the comforts you need. While we were in Big Bear we hiked, took drives on public dirt roads with our jeep and visited the dog friendly Farmers Market. We will be back.
We will recommend this rental to our friends and family.
