I'm very pleased with the Cabin that I stayed in . Everything was above my expectations. That cabin was Very very clean and well stocked with all the necessities. It gave instructions as to what to do and what not to do. I consider this to be one of the best experiences that I've had in a number of years, It was not only will prepared for my stay., But also was convenient for the city of big bear and the surroundings.

My family and I rented this cabin for a mother's Day getaway for my wife. Upon entering the cabin we were totally amazed at how clean, comfortable and well ,maintained the property was. The location was close to area attractions and the amenities were top notch. Check-in and out was very simple and the home was equipped with everything you need for a weekend stay.

I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone wishing to stay in Big Bear.

home away from home. This was a great weekend get-away. The kitchen had everything we needed to make a couple of meals at 'home' when were just wanting to relax and not be in the hustle and bustle of the village. Yet, the village and the local attractions were so close by. It may have just been the season, but there were a few random/rogue ants that made there way onto the carpet/sofa (not a swarm, just a couple to be a minor nuisance) Otherwise the cottage was clean and tidy and comfortable. Although we didn't use it, there was a grill out back on a deck that is nice for stargazing. Would definitely go back.
Manager response:
We apologize for the ants. We are careful to use non-toxic spray to control this problem if it arises. The ants can be a problem from time to time in the Big Bear area during the warm summer months. Thank you.

My family loved staying at the Hillcrest Retreat over Easter weekend. My 3yr old has severe anxiety while traveling and this is the first time we've traveled without him having an anxiety episode. He kept saying how much he loves the "house in the woods". The home is very inviting and warm. It has all the comforts of home and more! We will stay here again and again.

The TV is a big problem at this property. They need to get a local cable in this property. Could not watch tv. Had something called Chrome which no one knew how to work.
Manager response:
We hope our guests will be happy to know the owners have just provided a laminated instruction sheet, complete with pictures, to assist guests in using the TV, streaming box, and Chromecast. Thank you!
