The house is different and charming; with a unique vibe from most houses. A bit of a labyrinth, you can find many little doors and entrances, that seem frivolous, and that is half the fun!

Took the family out to Big Bear for our fifth year anniversary. Chose this cabin for the historic value. My wife loved it with all the secret doors and hall ways. Would definitely rent this cabin again.

We used Vacasa to book the Hobbit House in Big Bear for the New Year and it was perfect!

We had a lovely retreat in this warm and cosy house. The decor is quirky and we had fun looking around the house when we first arrived. The kitchen was great for preparing meals for our large group and we all enjoyed sitting in the main living area eating, talking and playing games! The beds were comfy and the house was really clean. We all made use of the hot tub which was really hot and relaxing; perfect to unwind after a long day at the slopes. We could easily walk to the shuttle which only took five minutes to get to the slopes which made it a fantastic location.

We all enjoyed our stay here and look forward to returning :)

Loved the rustic character of this 90 year old cabin.... It was set back up away from town which was so quiet and serene.... there were hiking trails we could walk to from the cabin and the lake was a short drive away. It was great to be able to come back in the evening and sit out back in the jacuzzi too.
Manager response:
We have purchased a fan for each room and hope this guest will return next year to enjoy them!
