Within walking distance of lake and Castle Rock trail. Very comfortable and clean inside.

My family of five stayed at this cabin over the weekend to celebrate my birthday and we had a great time!

I loved the updated design of the cabin. The interior was very clean and well stocked. The linens and towels throughout were very clean. I was impressed how nicely the beds were made and how organized the bathrooms were. Hotel quality.

The surrounding neighborhood is very nice and quiet. Another review mentioned that the house is along side Big Bear Blvd and a little noisy, but I did not think so. Once inside, and with doors closed, it's not bad at all. If anything, since the cabin is close to the street, it's very accessible to the lake, the Village and shopping.

We were very comfortable and look forward to staying at this cabin again someday.

This place is great, we've stayed many times, both summer and winter. The location is excellent, close to downtown Big Bear and right next to the Castle Rock hiking trail. You can also walk up to Boulder Bay park! We love it, super clean and nice!

First let’s start with the good...the cabin was great! Perfect size for my husband and I to get away for our anniversary and relax. Close to the water and Castle Rock is a short walk away. Now for the reason I gave it a 2...we drove almost 6 hours to Big Bear, the email we got stated office opened at 3pm. Got there and office didn’t open till 4pm. We got our code, went to our cabin and tried to unlock it for almost 15 minutes. Called them and it took 45 minutes for them to answer the phone. Took another 15 minutes for them to look up the code and give us the correct code. Got in and the cabin was 85 degrees. There is no AC, which isn’t a big deal, but there are only ceiling fans and no window or floor fans. 3 days into our stay I received a call from Vacasa stating they were going to come over and do a compliance check. Never had that before in all the VRBO’s we have rented. They were also out of propane for the gas grill so make sure you have gas before you plan a nice bbq with your family. There was also an ant issue in the main bathroom.
Overall the cabin was nice, just wish it would have started out better. Not sure we will rent from Vacasa again because of the service we received.
Manager response:
Teresa, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback following your stay. We're so sorry for the disappointing experience during your visit and for the communication and service deficiencies you endured. Our local manager confirms the access code has been verified and is correct for our future guests, the ant issue has been addressed and propane is provided for guests. We hope we have the opportunity to impress you in the future.

It’s a small little cabin but it’s so great and homeish place my husband and I loved it we will be back soon

They place was OK. We have very tall people in our family. This house has very small doorways and tiny bathrooms. Could have been a bit cleaner. We still enjoyed our quick family getaway.
Manager response:
Hi Ken! Thanks for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your getaway with us, and value your feedback surrounding the cleanliness of the home. We have worked with our housekeeping crews to ensure future cleans will live up to the Vacasa standard. We hope to host you again soon!

Emma S. Dec 2019
I really enjoyed my stay here at castle rock cabin and appreciated all the home appliances already provided. I'm saying it was worth the wait for me because I had booked awhile ago and have been very antsy. I paid about 600 for 2 night stay which isnt terrible However I wish the check out was a bit later like at 1 or 2pm. All in all I loved my stay and I will be back!!. Beware! The pictures online are little misleading - it's a small structured place so if you're over 5'8 you may have to duck when entering rooms!! Have fun!!
Nicola O. Jul 2019
We had a great time and walked to Boulder Bay!!
We drove in 5-6 minutes to The Village.
The cabin had everything we needed. Well appointed and spotlessly clean.
My only complaint was the traffic noise when you opened the door
