Good stay overall, but the house needs some improvements.

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Fox Farm Manor. The house was a good size and a good layout for our group of parents and kids. The hot tub worked well, and there was a nice-sized yard for the kids to play in the snow. However, there were some issues.

The heater didn't work for the first 5-6 hours of our stay, and the house wouldn't warm up past 57 degrees. The staff came out at 10:30 pm and fixed the heat, but it put a damper on the start of the weekend. The downstairs bedroom was extremely cold all weekend.

Several of the beds are in poor shape. The bunk beds are rickety and its mattresses are extremely thin and uncomfortable. They should be replaced. Another twin bed frame was dented and sagging, so we had to move the mattress to the floor. The blinds did not work in the bedroom next to the kitchen.

In the kitchen, one of the refrigerator drawers fell open every time the fridge was opened. The water/ice maker was not connected. The house was lacking in basic niceties: we were given one dish towel and one trash bag. There were no wine glasses and a very small assortment of glasses overall. We had been warned that there would not be hand soap in the bathrooms (though we were given travel-size soaps, which was fine). Why not, for the amount we are paying? That is a very minimal expense.

The air hockey table is in need of repair, and that was disappointing.

Lastly, when we arrived, we had to shovel two feet of snow off of most of the driveway in order to park the cars there. Moreover, there was no snow shovel, and we had to drive back to the rental office to get one. We were told they could bring us one, but it would take several hours. While there, we picked up some light bulbs to replace the burned out ones in one of the bedrooms.

The house is for sale, and it clearly could use some sprucing up. Additionally, Big Bear Vacations could be a little more generous with basic supplies given the high rental costs.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you had this experience. That storm was bigger than any we have seen in 10 to 20 years. It really was a learning curve for Big Bear Vacations and the whole town! We are taking a hard look at how we approach snow removal so we are more prepared and more responsive in the future. I have also forwarded you suggestions to the Team/Owner. Regarding this and your other concerns, this is certainly not our standard. I hope you filled out a Concern Form so we can review and address your concerns. When things go wrong we try very hard to make it right. A Note About Parking: During Winter months parking is greatly reduced due to Snow Conditions. Big Bear Vacations utilizes the Contract, Check in Paperwork, email notifications, and Front Desk Staff to educate Guests on what to expect. The contract actually states: "During the winter month’s driveways, steps, porches, decks and other outdoor areas at you property may not be accessible due to snow and/or ice. In winter months be prepared to have tire chains equipped on your vehicle." Additionally paperwork states: Cars must be parked legally (off street). Max Parking is in good weather (Snow conditions reduce parking spaces). Please be prepared if you are coming to Big Bear during a snow storm. Bring Chains and carpool when you can! FYI: We do not supply paper towels or condiments -- but sometimes we have cute little Spice Jars available at the Front Desk!

Nice property but overall we were disappointed

  • 2 of 5

I was somewhat disappointed relative to the money I spent.

We ended up having little to no heat the first night of our stay. The following morning I called to complain and someone came out and replaced a filter and addressed the issue.

There were TVs in the bedrooms (as advertised) but none were connected to cable. They only supported DVD play.

The blinds in the bedrooms appeared to be aged and one of them broke and fell down one evening and we had to hang a blanket over the window to keep out the sunlight for the remainder of our stay.

The hot water heater was rather loud and kept several of the kids awake at night.

Overall, the house was nice and quaint but appeared to be needling some care and maintenance.

Next time I stay in Big Bear I'll consider an alternative property.

The people at Big Bear Resorts were very personable and nice and I enjoyed working with them.
