Reviews

Thank you so much for the stay. Great place, great location. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Incredible spot! We were visiting with our sons & their friends so they could go boarding for the weekend. The house fit us all (12) super comfortably. The location was perfect as it was easy to walk to and from Big Bear. Parking was super convenient. All of the amenities were great for the group on both the entertainment & cooking fronts.

We loved our stay in Big Bear! The cabin has everything you could possibly need and is in the perfect location. Can’t wait to return in the winter.

Super spacious

Super spacious spot for a large group! Ideal location for being somewhat secluded & private while still being close by to everything you’ll need (Walgreens, gas station, bike rental shop, the Lake). Plenty of stay-in activities provided as well; game room & board games. SoCal was extremely timely & helpful when it came to answering any outstanding questions we had. Also, flexible with check-in & check-out times if asked in advance!

Central to everything

Perfect size for group of 6 adults and 1 child. Central to everything, so you don't have to travel far. Super comfortable couches and the massage chair is great after a hike!

Great property for a large group

We stayed here with a group of 12 ranging in ages from 50-2 and we were all comfortable. The massage chair was great after a long day of adventures. Great location for access to all that the mountain had to offer.

Highly recommend!!

My family and I had a great time! Wish we could of stayed another day. The house is gorgeous, great location, equipped with everything you need, and great for large families. Our stay went super smooth and ran into no problems at all. The host was super quick to reply and available for anything we might have needed. Check in and check out was fast and easy. We will definitely be staying here again. Thanks again for everything!

The ski resort is 0.3 mi alway (5 min walk) which is a major plus.

Driveway was well maintained and plowed so we didn't have to worry about snow/ice when driving. The game area/room was a smashing hit with my nephews and nieces. They loved using the pool table and the selection of games for the family. Then they'd take turns using the massage chair. Kitchen was big and perfect with all its amenities to accommodate our party of 12. Great chalet for the family!

Big cozy house with a lot of amenities.

Great location, short drive from the village and hiking trails.

The house is great.

Walking distance from Bear Mountain (and we were walking with 5 year olds uphill). Everything worked great including the heating, kitchen appliances, washer/dryer and BBQ. Highly recommend it!

10 June 2023

Great place for large groups.

It's really close to the zoo and to grocery stores. It has a pool table and can be made into a table tennis table. Lots of board games. Lots of stairs in the house.

Location, location, location!

Walking to and from the slopes is so easy. Even if you are in ski boots and/or carrying gear - granted this makes it a little more difficult but it's so close and way easier than dealing with and paying for parking. This is really great especially if everyone is on different schedules or doesn't want to commit to a whole day at the slopes. The house itself is well appointed - plenty of space and the game room is great. Furnishings are nice but not so fancy that you feel like you're going to ruin anything. The kitchen has everything you can possibly need to cook all meals big and small. Communication was easy with the management company. Highly recommend!
