“Do yourself a favor and DON'T stay here!!”
Reviewed 9 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This cabin was the worst part of what could have been a very enjoyable vacation. My wife and I stayed here with another couple and we were completely awestruck at how the charge to stay here was just over $300 (after taxes) per night. We figured that two couples could comfortably stay in a 2 bed/1 bath cabin for just two nights without stepping on each other's toes too much. Well, it's hard to even use the bathroom when the door will not close all the way and there is permanently placed vent that leads directly to the dining room from the bathroom where everyone can hear all your business. Also in the bathroom, the toilet leaked so bad that you could not leave the bathroom without having soaked socks or wet feet. We placed the garbage can under the leak and it filled up overnight. A call was placed to have it fixed but nobody came out or returned our call. This is extremely troubling because, with all the water leaking on the backside of the wall and under the laminate flooring, there's sure to be a serious mold issue. The bedrooms were decent but we found a condom wrapper placed slightly under the bed, but out far enough to notice. We get it, some people have sex in these beds, we just didn't want to be reminded about it before we got into the bed on the first night. The dishes in the cupboards were dirty, almost every single one we pulled out. On the first night, after finding so many things we didn't like about this cabin, we all got changed into our bathing suits to enjoy the hot tub. That would have been such a relaxing experience if only the hot tub wasn't set at 85 degrees. I instantly turned up the heat only to find out that it cooled at a rate of 2 degrees per hour. So, needless to say that we completely WASTED $600 and the possibility of enjoying a much needed vacation in beautiful Big Bear.

Bottom line, do NOT stay here if you can avoid it at all. If there is anything else available, I recommend you book it and just keep scrolling past this one. I would like to receive some kind of compensation for our inconvenience but I know that I will not get any.

“Cute, cozy and rustic cabin”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We loved this cozy and rustic cabin, nice to come home to after a day of skiing and sitting in the jacuzzi under the stars! Beds are comfy and street is nice and quiet.
