The house was absolutely clean. My wife raved about the cleanliness and I can tell you from experience that my wife is very picky when it comes to cleanliness. The yard was large and completely fenced, perfect for my four legged family members. The home was cozy yet spacious with 4 bedrooms. We will definitely stay here again.

It was a great home. We love the view love the capacity of the home! There was some issues Upon arriving. The screen door to the back area was rip. The trash was filled when we arrived! Neighbors Came by thinking we left the trash out side. It was embarrassing. Also the tv controllers were out of battery we had to buy some for all the controllers. We also had to buy toilet paper mind you we had to stay 2 nights with 10 people. The propane tank to the grill and the fire place outside ran out propane Just when we got to enjoy them. Also the grill needs maintenance. It was very hard to get a hold of someone to notify them of these issues. I emailed 2 times with no response. I also called and waited for 20 min waiting for a representative to assist me.

We have worked hard to add additional agents to our team and are pleased to note that we are once again able to assist all of our guests promptly, regardless of the time of day. We regret the frustration you had with the trash and tv remotes. The screen door has been fixed, and the propane tanks have been replaced. We do supply a starter supply of toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap and laundry soap to ensure our guests have a smooth first evening. We encourage our guests who foresee needing additional to bring their preferred items. We hope you will allow us the opportunity to provide you with a truly exceptional vacation experience in the future!

My family and I spent Father’s Day weekend here , and we honestly enjoyed the stay. However, we believe future groups booking this place should know about the neighbors. We love going to big bear often for a weekend getaway, and this was the first time we had a complaint about the next door neighbors. It’s an elderly couple who seemed bothered we were staying at the cabin, they would walk by and stare, making us feel like we had no type of privacy. They ended up calling the fire department on us, thinking we were burning wood outside our yard, which was propane and came with the cabin. Additionally, the upstairs bathroom has no shower head, so everyone would need to share the down stairs bathroom. Overall, we made the best out of our stay, and that is why I’m giving this a four star.

I love the size of the yard in the home itself. Had all the amenities necessary. My dog got out, however, because part of the fence is lifting. Maintenance cane quickly to address a different issue.

Beautiful piece of land! Fully enclosed with beautiful trees on property. Beds are comfortable and a very nice electric fireplace that works very well. My dogs really loved this place. Only thing I’d change is an upgrade to the living room couch. But Id love to come back either way! Amazing! Plus Vacasa is the best!

Most imporantly it has a large fenced yard that was perfect for our dog and kids. A lovely house too. Just missing some amenities. The kitchen supplies and counter space are very minimal so you could not make a serious meal here. Living room with fireplace is really nice, but not great furniture for more than a couple of people. Couch doesn't face TV. There are 2 other chairs, but they are uncomfortable. Wish they could move the nicer chairs from bedrooms to the living room. That would have made a big difference. Lastly, bring your own board games, puzzles, books. Not a good supply in the house. However, with On Demand cable still able to watch some fun movies, and they do have a Wii!

We loved everything, the house is cozy and everything is perfectly nicely decorated. The only complaint I have is about the A/C was set to a temperature but it was too stuffy and hot, other thing you guys should work on it is the cleanest of the beddings
We had to wash them as soo. As we got there because blankets were stained, one wash and were gone. Other than those two things everything was as advertised we loved it and hope to come back soon.

My family and I just got back from a 3 night stay at this cabin, and although our stay got off on the wrong foot, overall we really enjoyed our time here. Because we were arriving after hours we were told by Vacasa to go directly to the cabin, and they provided the code to the lock box where the key is kept. Unfortunately they gave us the wrong code, and we waited outside in the cold after a long trip with 4 children and an infant for a half hour until we could finally get someone on the phone to give us the correct code. That was an extremely frustrating clerical error that could have been avoided. They also gave us the incorrect password to the WIFI (there was a typo) but again, another headache which could have been avoided. The first night's sleep was tough because the cabin was freezing when we got inside, and since it was late we needed to put our kids to bed right away. Their rooms never warmed up so they were extremely cold all night. We learned that the bedrooms heat the best when the heat is left on during the day with the doors all left completely open so the bedrooms can warm. The downstairs bunk bed room (the one with two bunkbeds) never really did get very warm our entire stay, but we just piled on the blankets and had our kids sleep in their jackets, and they were fine.

After the first night our stay got a lot better. The cabin itself is very nice, even better than the pictures. I was worried that we would feel cramped since there were two families (9 people in total) but we definitely had enough room. The decorations in the cabin were very cute, and they had everything we could possibly need. There were plenty of towels that we went 3 days without running out, and we even found some Tylenol and bandaids when they were needed. I brought a pack n play for our baby, but we found out that they had a crib and two pack in plays so we never ended up opening ours! They also had plenty of movies, games and toys so our kids were entertained. But the best part of the cabin by far was the fully fenced in yard. Our kids were able to spend hours in the yard playing in the snow, and our dog got to run around without any of us worrying that they would escape. The driveway is fenced in with the yard, so our cars were also fenced in which we appreciated as well.

I would definitely stay here again, and will plan on arriving earlier to hopefully avoid the frustrations we had with a late check in.
