Poorly Maintained, Moldy, Musty
I never complain about food, housing accommodations, or anything service related. However, after only 2 hours of sleep (we tried for 8), my wife and I gave up and left the unit for the day around 6:00 AM. That was unfortunate because the pharmacy didn’t open until 8 and we both needed copious amounts of allergy meds just to breathe again. We were able to confirm that it was the rental that caused the allergies for what it’s worth.
In addition, mold was visible in several places, the unit connects to the upstairs unit from the inside that is rented out separately. The paper thin walls allowed us to hear everything upstairs perfectly clear. You can hear every step taken up stairs, every faucet turned on, etc. We ended up cutting our vacation short due to our experience here and I would highly suggest that the owner does some light renovations to address the health hazards, or to make the two units better separated (or sound resistant) before anyone thinks about renting this location. Side note, the property management company (cool cabins) was very apologetic, understanding, and helpful throughout this situation. Rent from them, just not this unit.
We're very sorry for the issues you experienced at this property during your stay, Cameron. Thank you for letting us know so we may improve and make our cabins better for you and other guests. We hope you will return to Big Bear soon and stay with Cool Cabins.
We use VRBO all the time! Almost all of the homes we have stayed at are a great alternative to a hotel. However, I was a little disappointed with this one. For 5 people, there were hardly any towels and with a spa (which We used) there were no beach towels to use. The bathroom is in horrible condition - holes and scuffs all over the walls and medicine cabinet. I felt like it was a cheap motel 6 bathroom. Secondly, the toilet never flushed. We had to manually take off the lid and pull the cord to flush the toilet- gross!
The tv didn’t work- we had to call maintenance and apparently the cable box needed to be upgraded- which they did but this should have been done before we arrived.
They also do not have ANY tv channels. Seriously, there were maybe 10 channels available to us. There was a DVD player but it was broken. There was only one checkers game.
The kitchen was NOT stocked with dishes. There was one wine glass and only a few bowls.
Seriously, this place is poorly managed and the owners must be cheap. After a day on the slopes you want to come back and relax at the cabin but this was not relaxing.
Would not stay here again...
I have received your review regarding your recent stay at Summit Escape B and I
wanted to reach out to you and thank you for such a detailed account of items for us to improve upon. We are always available for our guests’ comments and concerns. Thank you again for your time and we hope to have you back very soon.
Great cabin at the BASE of Snow Summit!
Wow, what an incredible location! We had no idea. It was literally at the base of Snow Summit, we could walk. It was pet friendly, clean and comfortable! Heats up quick and was perfect. Had an incredible time and didn't want to leave!
