Peaceful Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures tell you exactly what you get. Wonderful location a block away from Snow Summit. Street had less then 5 cars a day go past. This was the first time I have used Vrbo, Jason made this so very easy. Emails were answered immediately.
The owners have put some work into this house. The house is nicely furnished and very inviting. Everything we needed was already there waiting for us. The hot tub on deck was clean and ready to go after the drive up. All rooms felt spacious with wonderful view of the great outdoors!
I highly recommend this rental to anyone wanting to be near all and still have a peaceful paradise to relax! I will definitely be stating there again!

Enjoyable Time!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first time at Big Bear, and I have to say, I had a great time. Not sure I'd do a cabin again versus a bed and breakfast, as the costs were pretty similar, but the privacy of renting a house to yourself was really pretty cool. If I do cabin again, this would definitely be a place I'd be happy to come back to.

The place was really enjoyable. It looked just about what it was in the pictures, although the couch placement had changed a bit. The kitchen looked pretty new. The ice maker doesn't work, but ice was left in the freezer conveniently. We didn't do much more than sleep in the cabin, but we did make one meal -- it was kind of nice, and felt like being at home, but with more room than we're used to. Hot tub is bromide vs chlorine. I kind of like the smell of it versus chlorine, but some might not care for it as much. Be aware if you're bromine sensitive. Rental contract states two weeks for deposit return, and I'm coming up on that now -- no deposit return yet, but I haven't asked for it either. Just don't expect a rapid deposit refund. The deposit was new to me, so I took photos of the place as entered and as I left, just in case I'd need it.

For the techies out there: High speed Internet is stretching it, as I was getting about 1.5mbps downstream and .5 upstream on an apparent DSL connection -- but I was out here to get away. Out of curiosity, I checked if there were other faster options, but the local cable carriers didn't' even recognize the address. I suspect it's the fastest option in the area. Just don't expect huge speed out of it. We resorted to VZW LTE on our iPads, which was marginally faster. My AT&T cell phone was about the same speed on HSPA+, so I left that on WiFi. TV had a generous package, but wasn't connected to the internet and therefore DVR functionality was disabled. Mildly annoying, as I like pausing Live TV.

I can imagine in winter, this would be the PERFECT location for skiers -- it's literally a 300 ft walk or so up the hill to the ski lodge resort. It's not too far from the lake, either, but in summer if the lake is your thing, there are other properties a bit closer. Weather was a bit warm that weekend, and I found myself wishing there was AC, but overnight it gets chilly. If you're new to big bear, like me, expect the feel of two seasons in the same day. It reminded me a lot like Flagstaff. Great town, great place. I'd definitely come back again.

Overall, I'm happy to recommend this place!
