Great home, close to ski

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this lovely property in Big Bear. It was very spacious and the 10 adults and 5 kids were able to have ample space and spread out. The house was kept clean and the kitchen had all the necessary tools we needed to make large group dinners. It was only minutes away from the ski lodges and the cute downtown village too. Great spot if traveling with a group!

Wonderful time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying here. I love the private road leading to this house, right in the middle of the forest. The views are spectacular from the balconies. First of all the minute we walked through the door we noticed the new furniture, it gave the house a total new rustic modern look, we loved it. The house was impeccably clean and well kept. Although we did not get snow like years past we still had an amazing time. We BBQ on the balcony right outside the dining room area, the kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans and everything you need to cook a meal for 30+ guests. We enjoyed the pool table in the game room and the living room was a great hangout spot for everyone.

I want to thank Grant and the property manager, Kaylee (i think that's how you spell her name) for taking such good care of us. I had to call them to turn up the heat and to show us how to use the remote control for the TV and every time I called or text either one, they replied in a timely manner.

We had a wonderful time and I can't wait to stay here again for the 3rd time!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a four day weekend at this incredible property every year with a group of 20-25 people for a planning retreat for our church leadership. It is perfectly set up for us and super comfortable. We love it!

A memorable Big Bear experience

  • 2 of 5

I'll rate our experience in different categories. The owner responded quickly to my questions via email or texts. That's always helpful. The size and location of the house was perfect. A lot of activities and games available inside and outside the house to entertain the young and old. The house is complete with the basics especially in the kitchen. Wifi is great. Jacuzzi and pool table were great add ons. Just a feedback on the refrigerator-the freezer wasn't very clean. We wiped it off, no problem. Therefore, in this category, I give it 4 stars.

My biggest concern was, on our last day, few of my friends and family woke up with several itchy rashes on multiple areas of their bodies. Most of them were sleeping in the first floor rooms (where the pool table is). The rashes became worse throughout the day, and the following day. Of course, everyone was alarmed. Some friends who were severely affected went to seek medical treatment. I informed the owner about the possibility of bed bugs or other harmful insects. Hopefully, it'll be taken cared of before the next occupant. In this category, I give it a 1.

Overall, we still had a great time. I think if the owner will have someone check and treat the house, then anyone's experience will be better.

Incredible family vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about how perfect this cabin was for our big family vacation! With about 20 adults and 10 kids running around it never, ever felt crowded in this spacious home! Everyone of us had an amazing time from hanging in the kitchen cooking, eating and laughing, the game room was a hit and the spa in the evening after a long day of playing in the snow was the cherry on top of a perfect day! We absolutely cannot wait to come back and do it all over again next year! Thank you for being so accommodating, we had the most magnificent time!

Pretty good with a couple wishes

  • 4 of 5

The resort was fairly pleasant. We had a group of 30 people stay the night. I wouldn't hesitate to book this place but I will list some cons.


- Communication via email is patchy once you book the place. I had a few questions and the owner never got back to me.

- Garbage is off site. It was a little difficult to find the place and I wish that they provided a map to the location.

- A welcome packet with details - wifi password, reiterating the rules/requirements, etc. would have been nice.

- Maybe the carpet is just old but it looked very grimy.

- Don't use Waze to locate this place. Use google maps.


- Spacious, AC worked well, and the jacuzzi was nice.

- Plentiful parking and the lodge is isolated from other houses

- House was well stocked with garbage bags, soap, spices, dishes, etc.

- The representative was very accommodating and responded to texts/phone calls immediately.

- Vons/Starbucks are nearby!

Owner's Response: If you didn't get a question answered you should have just called or text me. I don't remember getting an email from you. All of Big Bear trash is offsite, all you have to do is google map the location, it's very easy to find since it's on the Main Street leaving the property. The great thing about our place is we don't have a wifi password since you're all alone on 40 acres, the basic rules are posted right by the door when you walk in. Carpet is only 18 months old, if you had a problem with cleanliness you should of said something, we pay a lot of money to keep the house clean, and aspect it to be perfect for every guest, would have made them go back out there and cleaned while you watched. Waze might just be behind in updates, probably will get there soon enough, but thank you, we will contact them for an update. Communication is our pet peeve, if you need anything or have an issue with something just call me, and we will handle it right away, makes me frustrated to see my guest's stay wasn't perfect, and I never got a phone call to make their vacation dream come true.
