I chose this place primarily for the location. A friend of mine had her son visiting from Maryland so we planned a Big Bear weekend of snowboarding and the location was perfect! It was a 4 minute walk to her cabin! The cabin turned out to be a great choice. It has recently been made over, new carpet, fresh paint, nicely decorated. It was clean and nicely furnished. All of the beds were new, very comfortable and clean. The kitchen was clean and decently stocked, although there weren't any baking pans or mixing bowls. I would suggest picking up some disposable foil baking pans if you plan to bake cookies, as we did. The owner was very responsive and helpful. He had snow discs and a sled that he let us use for our stay. It is about a 45 minute drive to the snowboard resorts. Thankfully the roads were clear during our stay so the drive up and back was not bad. Overall, a very pleasant and comfortable stay. I'm sure I will stay here again!
