Cole B. Nov 2021
Adorable little home that was a perfect distance from everything. The neighborhood was very safe and a hiking trail, coffee, and donuts was all walking distance! Would for sure stay here again.

It was our second time at this cabin. Everything was good, just a few small things were not cleaned well enough. Great location.

I had vacation from 31 dec to 3 Jan 2020.
Two adults and three kids.
Check in was very easy and fast. Office for pick up code for key box was 2 min from the house.
This house has very good location. 5 min driving to Snow Samit .. Also 2min from house we founded nice place for rent ski or snowboard. (By the Vacasa office).
House for 4 people max. Very very small. Good for two adults and max two kids, but not more ...
No washer and dryer machine.
Kitchen very small and floor very cold. On kitchen No spices or salt, nothing. Also no kettle and cutting board.
We Very liked jacuzzi, it was already hot when we came. Clean water in.
I can recommend this house for small group or family and on short time to stay there.
Also price was too high on new year vacation, it’s not worth it.
Next time we gonna find something bigger.
Thank you!

We loved the big jacuzzi and back yard. It was smaller than we thought. Great location!
Lolita R. Dec 2019
The cabin is a good size for two people. Nice Jacuzzi, all warmed up. They provided towels and amenities. Nice kitchen, ready for cooking . Nice fireplace. Nice backyard. The cabin is exactly like the pictures.

The decor is very cute, although there are furniture spacing issues. I’m 5’6 tiny person and I kept bumping my elbows on their furnitures, especially in the main bedroom. It IS also true there were paints and other maintenance items in their cabinets. It was not a problem as you can’t really see them. Everything else at the cabin was great.

However our biggest issue was the check in. We were supposed to check in at Big Bear Vacasa office first, but i guess someone forgot to come to work that day.

We weren’t the only one, there was another group who said they have been waiting since 9 AM to check in. Their office was closed for the whole day. We called their emergency number and their maintenance guy, Bill (who was awesome), showed up and checked us in.
Manager response:
Hi Lolita, thank you for your feedback. We sincerely apologize for the office being closed during the time that you were supposed to check in. Clearly we failed to provide the high level of customer service that we pride ourselves on. We regret any inconvenience that it caused for you or any of our other guests. Going forward, we will make sure to be more proactive and diligent when it comes to getting our guests checked in. We hope you'll stay with us again!

Roy S. Jul 2019
Overall I thought the place was well kept and as advertised. The daily rate was similar to many of the AirBNB's in the area. We had a slight issue with the water heater, but the maintenance person came out quickly and resolved it, she was very professional as was the receptionist that helped us when we first arrived.

I loved the atmosphere, from the house we rented, to the peace I enjoyed while staying in this wonderful cabin.
Brian G. Apr 2019
The cottage was just as advertised. Very close to Bear Mountain, had everything we needed and we all enjoyed the hot tub that was already heated when we arrived. We will be back.
Richard Johnson / D. Feb 2019
This is a small cabin, but it is so well appointed that it would be hard to ask for more. Great t.v. cable and t.v. in the master bedroom. The master bedroom fake fireplace heater is cool and really heats the room well. The fireplace in the living room has a gas log making it easy to start the firewood. The kitchen is well appointed and adequate. The jacuzzi in the backyard is awesome! Loved everything about this stay
Nicole H. Feb 2019
Very small but perfect for me and my husband. Cabin was warm and hot tub heated when we arrived. The cabin was clean except for the kitchen trash was not taken out from previous renters. Small backyard where I got to play in the snow and very close to Bear Moutain. TV didn't work in bedroom but that wasn't a big deal...we just watched in the living room. The beds were very comfortable and had plenty of covers. Bunk beds are a little tight in one of the rooms but is fine for a couple nights sleep or for kids. Only one bathroom and the toilet is right behind the door so it's a little awkward but was okay with us! Easy check in and check out would reccomend !

The cabin i rented was awesome, very clean and comfortable.

The cabin was cozy and as advertised. The cable wasn’t originally working but when we let them know they sent someone and had it fixed immediately!

Diann D. Jul 2018
Very Charming! Great Bed, clean, fully loaded, great TV. But only really good for 2 people in living room for TV watching
Kirk F. Jul 2018
Tiny little cabin filled with country charm. Perfect for couple or small family.
Loved the jacuzzi and backyard swing.
Would stay again...
Emilio A. Jun 2018
This cabin looks just like it does in the pictures, but the backyard is even nicer than the pictures give it credit for! The owners really put a lot of work and beautiful detail into this home and it was the perfect cozy get-away for me and my husband! Cabin is clean, well stocked (you should bring a blow dryer though girls!) and the location is far enough that you hear peace and quiet, but your still within 3 minutes of the downtown village! Loved it here and we will definitely be coming back!
