I took my wife to Castlewood Cottages in Big Bear, CA for our 25th wedding anniversary. Each cottage has a different theme. We stayed in the "Tree House." The cottage was actually built 20' up a tree. The inside featured a lighted tree, jacuzzi, and a fireplace. Up the spiral staircase is the bedroom with a very comfortable bed and...

One word, AMAZING! Loved every moment of being there. We went here for our short stay honeymoon after staying in Palm Springs and it was other worldly. So peaceful, a warm welcome and beautiful surroundings. We stayed in the tree house which had its own real wood fire, jacuzzi big enough to fit two (and we are not the smallest...

Spent two nights here for our anniversary, had a great time in very cozy cottages. First night we had the 'Captains Quarters' which was pirate themed, and then in 'Robin and Marian'. Both included a hot tub and fireplace and were very quiet as they were no walls, ceilings or floors shared with anyone else. Staff was excellent and location...

We have stayed in the castle cabin and in the tree house, and loved them both. The builders obviously put a lot of love into creating this place. The attention to architectural detail is tremendous. We are going back next week and staying in the Egyptian cabin. Should be fun.

Loved both of them. The enchanted forest is smaller, ur bed is in a tree so you feel like you are sleeping under the stars. The tree house is my favorite and larger. We went up the first time last April 2014 right before Easter, and then our most recent trip was last July 2014 right before the fourth. Both...

We stayed for 3 nights in the Castle Garden Cabin. Wow, what a fun and unusual cabin! 3 levels of fantasy fun. The cabin has a huge fireplace, a 2 person tree swing (inside), hot tub and waterfall. The decorations and attention to detail really make you feel like you are the king and queen of your castle. This cabin...

This places is awsome!. They make you feel at home, especially with the personal touches if you request them for like an anniversary or honeymoon. Petals on the bed, champagne in a suit of armour helmet. Details in each room add to the aviance of the feel of being in a tree house or medevil castle.

The past review's were so misleading. I booked this property thinking it was going to be perfect but unfortunately it wasn't. This was booked for Valentine's weekend plus it was our Anniversary the day before. I was looking forward to this for a few months since i booked it in November. There is new owners so i guess there getting...

Great place to get reconnected. We have visited many times and like the tree house with a gurgling fountain, jacuzzi, fireplace, TV in the 2nd floor bedroom. With microwave and a fridge you enjoy your room all weekend or drive 2 blocks to the village. They will loan movies and provide firewood. New owners are in the process of fixing...

From the moment I stepped into the Crystal Cave, I was in awe of how much inspiration and talent went into making this room so spectacularly beautiful. From the bubbling Jacuzzi, to the stars that sparkle above the bed at night, this place exceeded my expectations for a weekend getaway. The serene environment, complete with a fire place, to a...
