A Spectacular Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving and the weekend at this wonderful luxury chalet with 15 other family members. It is spacious, and the views are breathtaking. The cable for the tv didn't work, which originally concerned us because of all the football games we would miss. In the end it was better, because all the family then participated in the crazy games. We did go to a sports bar for a couple of games, but in the end we really didn't miss not having television, a the theater room was amazing. The young adults watched movies till after 2am each night.

Owner's Response: Tom, Thank you for taking such great care of our home and for taking the time to write a review. I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at our chalet! Sorry we couldn't get the cable TV issue worked out during your stay. It ended up requiring a service call from the cable company to fix the problem, but it's working great now. If you plan any other trips to Big Bear, please keep our home in mind. You're welcome back anytime! Thanks, Travis

Great location and home with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We had four families enjoying nearby skiing and snow boarding. The Chalet was beautiful with various activities for adults and children throughout the floors. The adults and children enjoyed the indoor jacuzzi, pool table and movie theater room. The owner is very responsive and helpful. Thanks for the memories.

Not impressed for the price we paid.

  • 1 of 5

First off, I will start off by saying that it was our fault for not communicating well that our pet sitter bailed. We brought cages to keep our dogs in throughout the time we were there, aside from letting them use the bathroom outside.

Now let me get started, for the price we paid for 2 nights and 3 days well over $5000 (during New Year Eve and New year) was not worth it at all. We arrived to the house with pet urine stains all over. It seems like nothing in the house was well maintained or upkept. We booked this with the idea of using the pool table and other amenities inside the house, that were listed in the discription upon booking. The pool table was broken, along with all pool sticks. You would think for the price we paid, the pool stick could at least be replaced. Now, the hot tub water was yellow and had this moldy smell to it, we know it’s inside so the smell of chlorine is suppose to be strong, but not throughout the whole house burning everyone’s eyes upon entry. Now, the balcony, is ridiculous and unsafe, especially for children. Walking on the balcony was loose and squeaky and feels extremely unstable, some of the floor boards were unattached. If you look at all the rails, they were all slated. The room with the bunk beds, one of the bottom bed is unable to pull out due to the closet being in the way. One of the shower has a broken shower head. The grill took forever to even start up, due to it being the way it was rigged up to the gas line.

Moving on, we really do see a big potential if this cabin can be fixed up, updated, and new accessories required for the games inside.

Owner's Response: This is really an unfair review. These guests said they weren't bringing any pets (and signed the rental agreement stating the same), but then showed up with 3 dogs. One of which was literally the size of a small horse. Not wanting to ruin their vacation, I reluctantly allowed them to stay. We do allow pre-approved pets on a case by case basis and have never had a problem with guests not cleaning up after them. When these guests checked out however, we found urine spots in the carpet and dog hair everywhere on the furniture. They didn't bring cages with them, as she stated (the dog hair everywhere proved that). I can't imagine they even make a cage big enough for this horse-sized dog, and if they do, it would be an act of animal cruelty to keep a dog of that size in a cage. Anyhow, I brought in extra housekeepers to do a deep clean throughout the house and had the carpets professionally steam cleaned. I only charged them for the carpet cleaning, thinking that was incredibly fair. Minutes after they received the remainder of their deposit back is when I got notice of their review, so I believe this was done purely in retaliation. For them to lie, break the rules, cause damage, and then write a 1-star review just doesn't seem right to me. To all future guests, please know that we love this house and take great pride in it and want our guests to love it to! If you find anything unsatisfactory, let us know and we'll make it right. Had these guests mentioned any issues to us during their stay, we would have taken care of them immediately. The spa was just serviced hours before they checked in. The deck is perfectly safe. The grill is hooked up to the house's gas line, so running out of propane is never an issue. And a broken pool que? No problem! We've got tons of them and could have had it replaced for them in minutes! Thank goodness we have over 35, 5-star reviews to offset this one, 1-star review.

Such an awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. My husband, daughter, and I had a great long weekend at the house. We come to Big Bear a few times a year to get away from the city, so we usually spend most of the weekend inside when we rent houses. This was perfect for us! We loved the indoor hot tub - which at first we were worried about, since we'd always stayed in houses with outdoor tubs and we were worried that it might smell chlorine-y in the house. Not at all! And it was such a treat to not have to go out in the cold to go in the hot tub! And the movie theater room was *so* much fun. We watched the new Star Wars movie, Rogue One, and it looked & sounded awesome! We actually brought our Playstation and hooked it up to the surround sound system using the directions that Travis left - it was perfect. :) We played a few games of shuffleboard, too - that was fun! The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare some great meals, too. The only super small thing was that there's some loose boards on the deck outside - watch your step, both of us tripped on a board on the deck. But otherwise this place is absolutely great. Would definitely stay here again!

Amazing place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Travis was a great host. The house is well kept, has a ton of space and amazing views. The property is only a few minutes away from the entrance to bear mountain by car so we were able to take a short drive and park up the mountain. We had a group of 14 people and we had room for everyone. We spent most of our time in the game room chatting, playing pool and drinking by the fire place. Do make sure to bring firewood if you come in the winter as the fireplaces are great. The garage is not available to guests so make sure to keep that in mind if you are planning a trip with a big group; the driveway fits 4 cars. The theater is a bit chilling in the winter if you are going to use it as a bedroom (There are extra blankets so you'll be fine) just fyi.
