NAPOLEON DYNAMITE VACATIONS HERE! SWEET VIEWS, WALK TO VILLAGE

Big Bear Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

As part of the family, Napoleon Dynamite's (Jon Heder) favorite getaway is Coyote Crest, a romantic, yet family friendly 2 bedroom cabin in central Big Bear Lake. Enjoy this quality LAKEVIEW cabin in the best location in Big Bear.

For those of you tired of So. Cal. driving, once you arrive at Coyote Crest, you never have to get in your car again. Walk to the village for boutique shopping, gourmet dining, movies or bowling (a Napoleon favorite!). Miles of trails for hiking and biking are out the back door and skiing is a short drive (1 mile) away. Or just enjoy the incredible views from the 2nd floor outdoor deck hot tub.

The focus at this upstairs unit of the cabin is to see the lake and majestic mountain views from all the main rooms of the home. Whether you are in the living room by the fire, at the kitchen sink, or kicking back in the master bedroom by the fire, there is not a view of the lake that can not be seen! If you are looking to be 'At' the lake 'AND' enjoy a true mountain cabin experience, (completely remodeled inside) this is the cabin for you! Don't be a 'friggin idiot' - Rent this cabin now!

For those with families, the cabin has the following:

port-a-crib

High chair

booster seat

yard with swings, tree house and a hill for sledding

There is a king bed in the master bedroom. A double bed and a twin in the guest bedroom. There is one large bathroom with separate toilet and shower areas.

All rates posted at the bottom.

FAMILY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to this lovely cabin. As before, we found everything very clean and pleasant. Amazing views, well sized living areas, comfortable furnishings, minutes from town - very cozy and well appointed. Please ignore the bad review - totally ridiculous. I tell all my friends about this place and plan to go again this year.

WONDERFUL PLACE FOR A ROMANTIC WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
This place was fantastic. My wife and I used it for a romantic weekend in Big Bear, and it was perfect. The cabin is spacious and comfortable with a free-standing shower and large bathtub. There are two bedrooms- one with a king sized bed and gas fireplace and a second with a twin bed and double bed. There is also a good kitchen and a large sitting room with wrap-around sectional couch, HDTV, DVD player, and gas fireplace. There are two balconies. The one facing the lake has a captivating view and a large jacuzzi tub. The cabin is also conveniently located with just a few minutes driving or walking to get to most of the restaurants and shops. In reference to the negative comments from other reviewers- my remotes worked, the pots were fine, and the fridge was clean. There are steps, but that is to be expected for an upstairs unit. They were not a problem and were well worth the view. My wife and I highly recommend this place.

A SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week and it just wasn't enough. This cozy home was just perfect for our family, which includes my son with special needs. He enjoyed having his own big boy bedroom and loved playing in the tree house and swinging right outside. Very convenient for us too. For more excitement we took a short ride to a nearby park, which everyone enjoyed.
The views from the back deck are absolutely spectacular! We spent most of our time relaxing out there. The house was laid out nicely and had everything we needed. The kitchen is equipped with new pots/pans and the coffee mugs were perfect for a nice latte on the deck in the mornings. (Coffee lovers understand the value of the right mug :--)).
Meg was always quick to get back on any questions we had and added special touches to make things extra nice, like the welcome basket filled with wine and snacks.
Everything was clean and well maintained. We look forward to coming back!

GREAT LOCATION, NICE CLEAN CABIN WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED!

  • 5 of 5
I was really blown away with the quality of everything in this place. Nice location with view of the lake from the deck/kitchen. It's small, but has a great layout and provided everything we needed. We found that walking to the village on the slightly longer path (right vs. left) was a gentler grade to navigate with a toddler in tow. Hot tub was a great touch after a long day of hiking.

WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
OMG!! We just got home from one of the best vacations we have had in a very long time. We stayed at a cute place in Big Bear Lake called Coyote Crest. What a comfortable and welcoming place. We never felt the need to leave. The cabin was clean, comfortable and we will come back in a heartbeat. We are going to book for the Christmas holiday. We hiked everyday and came home to the jacuzzi which was a blessing. Wonderful views of the lake made this cabin very special. The anemities in the cabin are a real treat. We slept like babies every night. Thank you Meg for our wonderful weekend.

IF YOU LIKE MOTEL 6... YOU'LL LOVE THIS PLACE!

If you like Motel 6... you'll love this place!
  • 2 of 5
This place is like Motel 6 with views.

The good:

It's actually a nice cabin (it's actually a condo they separated the top floor from the bottom floor.) When you pull up it feels like one of the nicer houses on the block. And it is.. it is a nice house.

Here are the problems:

1. Teflon peeling pans
2. Disgusting tepid water in the jacuzzi (think motel 6 jacuzzi and there you go)
3. Broken ancient TV (picture is fine, sound didn't work...)
4. Moldy towels (the kind that leaves your face and hands smelling like mold...not the green kind of mold)
5. I can understand an inexpensive mattress, I cant understand the horrible pillows.
6. Remotes without batteries, no spares
7. Hair blower that blows cold air only...
8. Broken knife that falls out of the handle...
9. The list does go on... but, the picture is clear.

All in all, these are minor offenses that only in aggregate gets your wife saying (tongue and cheek): "well at least there arent bugs..." and you realize the "nice little weekend getaway" has turned into a moldy, obnoxious joke.

Over the years we've stayed at a lot of places through vrbo... All five star experiences. The overall feeling I get from the other experiences when comparing it to this experience is that the other owners understand that they have a role in the "hospitality" industry... That their customers are coming to them to relax and be on vacation... The other owners seem to have a more gracious point of view when it comes to maintaining and supplying their homes.

----

I wasn't necessarily going to post the negative review... but the owner responded to my private email with the above complaints basically refuting my experience but the kicker were these defensive remarks: "There were batteries before you showed up..."; "We smelled the towels and they were fine..."; "the jacuzzi gets serviced weekly..." "...the pans are fine but I'll be replacing them next week..."' and the kicker "I will return your deposit within 2 weeks per your contract..." Presumably to finance her new pots/pans for the next guest...

Either way the callousness and defensiveness gives me the sense that this is a battle that she's gone through many times with various other clients. So, here it is... my 2 star experience with this cabin.... because 2 stars is "fair." I sincerely hope that your experience is 5 stars, this place does have some potential.

Owner's Response: While the guest was at the cabin, we received a note stating what a "Nice place" it was. We were never informed that they were unhappy or given the opportunity to address the issues.

We responded and personally looked in to the various complaints made by this guest and determined them to not be valid.

After 100's of renters over 12 years there have been two negative reviews. Both were fabricated stories in an attempt to receive financial compensation. We don’t operate like this nor appreciate this type of business. We take pride in our cabin and work hard to make it a great memorable experience for our guests.
