Great LARGE group vacation
We had a great friend and family reunion here!!! We were sooo EXCITED to find an affordable place that was nice too, it’s homey, comfortable and clean! Loved the huge porch on the 2nd and 3rd level. We loved finding this place because we have a friends/family reunion so each family has 3-5 ppl per family, so it was wonderful to find a house that not only had 6 bedrooms but that had beds and sleeping accommodations for 4-6 + ppl in each room. Cooking was great in a very well stocked, large kitchen. Location was good, we went to the lake, zoo, and more all within 10 minute drive. The only heads up I would add to the description of the property is we were VERY upset to find that one bedroom does not have a door. It looks as if it was more of a den that was converted to a bedroom and it just has a curtain draped across the opening to act as a door. We have multiply family that meet up so it was disappointing to find out that someone had to be stuck in a room that really does not have privacy! I would rent house again, but I would look at it as a 5 bedroom house with another room that you could be used to throw kids in to sleep or people that do not care about privacy or hearing the noise in the house. That aside WONDERFUL WONDERFUL vacation!!!!

Owner's Response: This main floor has the living room, dining area, full sized kitchen, and the one bedroom commented on by our guest. This main floor is where guest go to mingle when they aren't in their bedrooms. Because the doorway to this bedroom is about seven feet wide, it allows for overflow from the other rooms and provides space where guests can freely walk about and divide into smaller groups for conversations or other reasons. For large groups this is a valuable and desired asset. We frequently have coed groups from youth organizations. This “open” bedroom allows chaperones to insure that boys and girls don’t mix. Finally, we direct virtually everyone to our web site to make their reservations. On that site there is a floor plan that has all the bedrooms diagramed. It also shows the type and size of beds in each room. It shows the enlarged doorway and that it doesn’t have a normal hard door. There is not enough wall space to allow for a pocket door. A curtain was the only way to solve the problem and maintain the utility of this space. There are very few large chalets and even fewer licensed for so many guests in Big Bear. This mingling space is unique to large groups, especially when it is ten degrees outside. I agree with this guest that the curtain doesn't offer the privacy that a couple may want or need. This is the first negative comment that we've ever received from a guest about it. Hopefully this review will clear this matter up for future guests and we thank this guest for helping with this subject. This guest left the chalet nice and neat and is the exact type of guest we need and want. We hope they will come back. Though this review was for a stay in 2010, they did rent it again this winter. Thx, Jerry.
