I would most definitely never return to Big Bear nor would I ever rent this cabin again it was horrible the moment I walked in it was not proper clean at all Furniture are very old and outdated with stains and rips very disgusting nothing practically work no hot water very rare and no AC it was very hot in the cabin nor can I open the windows because it had missing hinges nothing seem to be working right at all I was hoping to get away and have a good time but instead it was a nightmare everything seemed to just be breaking a very old outdated place not very comfortable place to enjoy the view... the only thing I did enjoy was The View it is beautiful but the place wasn't at all

Perfect cabin to spend time with family and friends.

The only good thing I can say was there were lots of towels and they were plush. Other than that many things were falling a part and/or not clean. The bed on the main floor is broken, the box spring was poorly "repaired". I weigh 160lbs and it broke under me while I was sleeping. The coffee pot was dirty, the floor was dirty and there was nothing for me to clean the floor with myself. There were more issues but listing all of them is tedious. I wish there was a way to upload the photos I took.. I didn't hate my stay but definitely didn't enjoy it enough to ever go back.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you would not consider returning, Heather. Local staff was happy to assist you with your concerns during your visit. Thanks!
