Nice cabin, but ants everywhere.

  • 3 of 5

Ants in the kitchen, on the furniture, in the bathroom, etc.

Staff said, "There's nothing we can do."

My wife definitely didn't want to spend each morning of our vacation cleaning someone else's cabin, but she did.

Overall good experience

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location, nice cabin, great hut tub...however, needs better maintenance and cleaning. Very old and stained carpet, old bed sheets, dust everywhere, toilet seats are in horrible condition. Overall we had fun and enjoyed beautiful Big Bear.

Perfect stay! Kids and adults loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay! The home was spacious and the decor was perfect for Big Bear! The hot tub and game table was an absolute bonus! The neighborhood was a perfect walking neighborhood, perfect for kids to bring their scooters or bikes. We had no idea how close we were to the lake. We were within a 3 minute walk and was able to enjoy sunsets. We will be back for sure. A+++. No complaints. Thank you for a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving holiday!

Wonderful time with family

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was lovely. Nicely furnished. Beautiful deck and yard. Very relaxing. However, we had to throw out food due to ants getting in it. The linens on the bed were rough and uncomfortable. I would definitely stay there again, but I'd bring my own sheets. My family had an amazing time there. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
