I took my boyfriend here for about a week for his birthday and we enjoyed every minute here, it’s a beautiful cabin and we were lucky to meet one of the neighbors and he’s pretty friendly like the rest of the town (: the only problem we had was the coffee maker didn’t work so we had to improvise and the water heater does have calcium deposits so that will have to be replaced soon but in the master bathroom we got hot water just not in the main bathroom which was fine it was only us two so overall we enjoyed our week so much. We’d definitely stay here again
Manager response:
Hi, Kalyn! We are so glad your getaway was enjoyable. The water heater has been taken care of, and the coffee maker works with the exception of the clock function. Thank you!

Very clean and modern, but still feels like a cabin in the woods. We’ll be back for sure! Thank you for a wonderful quick getaway.

The hot tub was exceptional and the cabin was very cute, the cabin itself was great. However the local property managers I’m not really sure about. Wanted an early check in, like maybe an hour or so and was told no for cleaning purposes even though no one was there the night before. Also saw cleaning person there 15 min before check in and she said was there to clean flies off window siles however there were flies on some. Not a big deal but just a little to ridged on the check in and not honest about it and ceiling fans really dusty.

The house was spacious and private. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and the backyard, our dog too. Everything about it was pretty great, would 100% recommend staying here.

The Lil Bear Lodge was the perfect place for a relaxing family get away on the 4th of July. We read in the reviews that the grill didn't work but was hoping it had been fixed. The grill won't heat up past 200 degrees so it does need to be looked at. We also had read that there was no ice maker in the fridge so don't forget to bring your own ice. The living room was spacious and perfect for family time for our family of five. The beds were comfy and the we all enjoyed lounging in the hammock and spa. We will definitely stay here again in the future. It was just what we needed to re-charge during these challenging, stressful times. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch swing observing nature while the children went bike riding throughout the neighborhood.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Lynn. We are glad you enjoyed this lodge and we appreciate you bringing these issues to our attention. We will work with our local team to ensure these items are corrected for future guests, and we hope to host you again in the near future!

If I could, I would give it a 10, but only 5 stars is available.. amazing place. Very beautiful and new house, very neat and clean, highly recommend, tidiness level really surprised .TV works perfectly fine, YouTube and Netflix worked and very high speed internet.Had zero problems with anything during our whole stay.
Loved the outside deck with barbecue, amazing space for kids, it’s very comfy and beautiful, we couldn’t stay out and enjoyed all our meals outside on the deck!!If your goal is to escape busy city life and connect with nature, this is your best choice, hands down you won’t regret this amazing spot. We found this little treasure and plan only going back here whenever we need an escape. Highly recommend for anybody who wants to have amazing time!Thank you so much

Very roomy and clean cabin not too far from town and well priced. Our Hostess Rebecca was amazing very helpful and attended to our needs as they arouse.

The house has everything you needed for a family of 4. The Kids enjoyed playing up and down the quiet streets. There’s a lot of room to explore. Up the hill is a hiking trail. Great getaway from the city!

My wife and our two kids (ages 4 and 7) stayed for three nights and it felt like home. We had everything we needed and loved having the spa to use as well. Located near the end of a peaceful and quiet street with a walking trail at the end. The water was hot and the water pressure was great. The central heating works well and there was plenty of space for us all to feel comfortable. Would definitely go back!

this place was cozy and cute, we liked our stay on this quiet street and we stopped at the local bar called Kaplans, fenced yard was perfect and we enjoyed the jacuzzi (although it could of been warmer they capped it at 99 degrees and it was 28 degrees outside, the kitchen was lacking supplies so bring your own, no extra toilet paper or paper towels and the ice machine wasn't working, they also did not provide firewood
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. Our spa tech has confirmed the hot tub can go as high as 104; we apologize you were experiencing difficulties with this and wish you had called for assistance. The fridge will not make ice since it is not connected to water. We hope to be able to host you again!

Our family of 5 really enjoyed the cabin. It was clean and had all the comforts of home. 2 Bathrooms was perfect and really needed when you have kids. Location is off the beaten path a bit, but its a quick 15 minutes into town. We would stay here again!

Love the place. It was clean and adorable. Perfect size for a family of four (2 teenagers) included. Walking to great hiking and sledding. Quiet and away from the main chaos of Big Bear during Xmas week. We will definitely be back.
