I am the owner of Tao Cabins. I am a snowboarder and musician on the weekend. All of the cabins I manage are nestled in a very small village, so it's private, quiet and tranquil. It is perfect for a family or a group spiritual retreat. I am also a Taoism practitioner. Taoism promotes inner peace and harmony with the nature. Staying healthy and happy are my spiritual practice.

I love tree house. Beside it is the location. Running Springs is a very small village between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake. It is located 2 miles from Snow Valley ski resorts and 11 miles from Big Bear Lake ski resorts. Unlike other cabins in Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake city, you will not see many people in Running Springs, and it is only 60 miles from LA and San Diego. It is my home in the nature when I need a break from city life.
Those trees around the cabin, is making this cabin a magic place. Also due to my cabins' unique location, you may ski in the morning at Big Bear Lake, and enjoy the high quality evening life in Lake Arrowhead on the same day. Beside the peace and comfort during your stay, when you are ready to go back to the city, you will be ahead of all the traffic from Big Bear Lake. All the major cities in the Redland are only 20 minutes drive from Tao Cabin.
Excellent place! Clean, comfortable, easily accessible, and close to all sorts of winter activities as well as downtown Running Springs. Small kitchen, but good layout for making a big feast with a small group of people. We had a great time, and hope to return. We specially like to dog's door, and thanks for the owner accept the dogs.
Well, we rented all 3 cabins, this one kids love the most, because it looks like a tree house. Down stair bedrooms need a little more decoration though. But for the price we paid, it is pretty good over all.
FIRST OF ALL I'D LIKE TO SAY KUDOS TO SEAN AND JENNIFER. THEY ARE ON THE GAME. CALLED ABOUT AN ISSUE AND FIVE MINUTES LATER WE GET A KNOCK ON THE DOOR WITH SOMEONE BRINGING A LIGHT BULB, CABIN IS VERY NICE AND WILL SLEEP 8 COMFORTABLY. IT IS LOCATED VERY CLOSE TO THE SLOPES AND WALKING DISTANCE TO THE MARKETS AND COFFEE SHOPS. VERY GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE EASY TO GET TO. CLEAN AND EVERYTHING YOU WOULD NEED AS IF YOU WERE IN YOUR OWN HOME, THANKS SEAN SEE YOU AGAIN REAL SOON. THE SNOW IS COMING,
We choose this cabin only based on video on the website. Before we get there, we were worry that video might be out-dated. It turns out the cabin is even better than the one on the video. Apparently, owner did more decorations after making the video. All good, we will try to remember this place.
The cabin suited our needs very well. It wasn't luxurious, but it was quite comfortable and in a very convenient location.
The only problem of consequence had nothing to do with the house, but snow removal nosie wake us up at 7 am.
Management are great, video and pictures are true. We will go back here every year.
The pictures and vidoe are accurate.
One of matress in smaller bedroom is old, it is little uncomfortable. I think we stay at Tao cabin #1, the fact is, this cabin is kind of old, but managment company maintained well, new paint, new stairs, we would suggest change the old matress though.
