Cozy and charming and tastefully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful being up in the trees, in a pretty neighborhood. The home is cozy and set up just right for a family. We all enjoyed our stay very much. Great spot! The boys got awfully chilly in their bedroom, so slept in the living room the second night.

Suggestions: Scissors needed in kitchen and repair sharp edge of rug by kitchen.

Great Cabin in a Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed two nights at Whispering Squirrel between Christmas and New Years. The quiet location is very convenient to the ski slopes and Village. We had plenty of space (three of us) and everything we needed for our stay. The owner and manager were helpful and responsive to all inquiries and things went very smoothly even during a very busy time of the year in Big Bear.

This cozy cabin everything you need to enjoy your stay

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen and bathroom have everything needed.

The heater is quiet and warms the cabin quickly.Our kids loved sleeping on bunk beds and see fresh snow from their windows when they woke up.

Would love to stay here again!

We loved staying in this house!

  • 5 of 5

It is comfortable and well organized. We are a family of 5, with 3 children aged 3, 8 and 10. The three children were in the bunk bed room (that actually have space for 4) and my husband and I in the other bedroom. The living room is nice for playing games and hang out. The kitchen is spacious and has most things you will need (a pair of scissors are missing though! ;-)) The house was very clean when we arrived and the manager Lysa is really nice and helpful. So is the owner Michelle. So I would totally recommend this place.

The only little negative point is the heater, that doesn't warm up the two bedrooms very efficiently as it stands in the middle of the house. So in the winter (it was snowing outside!) it is quite cool at night in the bedrooms and all doors have to remain open for the heat to spread. But the rest of the house is warm and cozy - we just slept with our fleece sweaters! Thank you for this great stay!
