We were so pleasantly surprised by how nice the house was and how great the location was! Check in was so easy, the house was spotless, the bathrooms are updated and there's also a pull out couch in the sectional in the garage. The hot tub was so clean and fresh, and there's a park with tennis courts and playgrounds right around the corner in view from the house. We'd definitely stay again!

Weekend at Tall Timbers

Published On:
Rating: 5 out of 5
We came for a (relatively) low-key guys weekend and had an absolute blast. The house has a bunch of beds, bathrooms, etc., and has all the necessary amenities in the kitchen. The outdoor area was mostly turn, which was unexpected but surprisingly nice, and WAY better than if it were just dirt. It's a charcoal BBQ which worked great, but is just something to be aware of because you'll need to get coal if you plan to grill. Really, our only complaint was that the volleyball court was gravel as opposed to sand, so we decided it wasn't even worth playing even though it was a big selling point of the house. The location is an easy walk to town, marinas, etc. in the summer, and is just a few houses away from an access point to walk to the lake.

Immaculate Cabin Very Close to the Lake

Very impressed with our stay at Knollwood and we were pleasantly surprised to see that the Lake is only a block away. The cabin is more like a house with nice, updated furnishings and decor. Fully-stocked kitchen with quality cookware, which is important to us because we love to cook. The game room is very cool and the hot tub is a bonus. Lots of room to spread out and we’d love to come back with a larger group. The neighborhood is really pretty and peaceful and we loved taking afternoon strolls to the lake. The village and main drag are very close by - great location. Lewis, the host, was very responsive. We’ll definitely be booking again in the winter to ski. Thanks!

This home was gorgeous from the inside and out. It was a group of 6 adults and 3 little ones under the age of 2. The home had more than enough space for all of us . The bbq grill had enough propane and they even had a spare tank just Incase you run out. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean! Which was great for us all. We took a neighborhood walk and discovered the lake. It was a perfect day out about 80 degrees. Overall fantastic booking. Close to town and great communication with property management. We would definitely book again with them.

Great Visit - OK Property

Review by

Rating: 3 out of 5
We stayed at this property for Labor Day weekend (Thursday - Sunday). The property manager I checked in with, Cody, was great. He was very nice and helpful. The property was what I expected after reading other reviews. You will not see any of the lake from this property. It was a disappointment, but there is a very nice marina that is an easy walk/drive from the property. We were told by some neighbors that the lake will come back, but until then, they really should take “lakefront” off of the description. With respect to the condition of the property, it certainly could have been cleaner and in better condition. This is an older property and has more of a cabin feel than a house. It’s rustic. The towels and linens were clean and the bathrooms were good, but overall it needs a deep cleaning and some basic repairs/upkeep. There were cobwebs and dust and carpet was old/stained. The stove was great (and clean) as well as the refrigerator. The kitchen cabinets are in poor condition. I brought a lot of my own kitchen supplies not knowing what would be available. There was a decent selection of items and one could certainly manage with what was there. Outside, the view was beautiful and the hot tub was excellent. The deck was the biggest disappointment. It was very dirty and the outdoor furniture was old, dirty, broken, and mismatched. Lake view or no lake view, the deck and backyard is where you’re going to want to enjoy the beautiful weather of Big Bear. The owners should understand that and have some decent furniture available. It would certainly help to make up for the lack of water access. We brought our own chairs (after reading a previous review) and sat out on the lawn whenever we were at the property. Overall, with a deep cleaning and some nice outdoor furniture, this property would have been four stars and, once the lake returns, 5 stars. In its current condition, it’s not worth the price compared to other properties available

This house was perfect! I came with a large group for a weekend and the house was so cute and had more than enough room for 10 people. Kitchen is updated and very nice and the deck and hot tub were unreal. Initially, I was hesitant because the property seems to usually have a lake view but with the drought I knew the lake would be pretty far off. I was so pleasantly surprised to arrive and find that instead the view had grown into a gorgeous meadow! Needless to say, this house and the incredibly helpful property manager made our stay wonderful. I will definitely be returning to this property!

The place looked so different in the pictures I almost thought we were at the wrong property. I knew the dock was dry and the lake wouldn’t be insight. The backyard was cute but the patio furniture was trashy. Plastic chairs and tables which would be fine if they were clean. They were dirty and cracked. Although the kitchen was updated the dishes were very minimal. The layout of the house was cute. But you just felt like everything was dingy and dirty. All the games they provided were missing pieces so you couldn’t play them. We left early and just went home because it just felt so dirty there. Plus there is a huge campground right next door for group camps, and they would yell and sing loud all day and late in the night. It wasn’t worth the money and would t ever go back.

The house was very accommodating for our big family. A couple issues that we had were 1. Alot of ants in the kitchen 2. Some of the couches were old and ripped. 3. No A.C as stated on the description and no screens on the windows so we couldn't open the windows, it would get very stuffy throughout the house. 4. All the TVs did not work, just the main one in the big living room but we couldn't get the DVD player to work. 5. The refrigerator & freezer did not work well. Our food was practically room temp and our icecream was pretty mushy. 6. No play room, just a pool table in one of the living rooms. The issues did not interfere with us having a great time. We made the best out of it. The best part was seating in the back deck with everyone and having bf, lunch and dinner. Our host Cody was very attentive from the moment we booked.

The house / cabin was nothing like it was described. It was advertised as a waterfront property, but because of drought it was 100 feet from the water. Truth is it’s 1000’s of feet from the water, and water is visible from any part of the property. The description says 4 bedroom, but it’s only 3 bedroom with a walk thru room into a large area with another bed. This are has no separate entrance and can only be accessed by walking thru the main room.

The house was perfect. It felt roomy, the view was absolutely beautiful, everything was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The rental staff was very easy to work with as well. Another plus that we didn't anticipate was easy access to hiking trails. It was a quiet location on a quiet road.

great layout, dock access

Published On:
Rating: 4 out of 5
This is a solid property for a large group. The layout is great and there is tons of sleeping space (6 bedrooms!). Nice views of the lake. The property itself is a little quirky. Most of the windows don't have screens anymore so it is tough to get air circulation in the large house (lots of bugs outside, so screens would help). Also, when hot water runs, there is a weird shreaking sound that you can hear throughout the house. The only other down side is that to get to the dock, you have to climb over a bunch of loose rocks - just tricky if you're carrying kayaks, paddle boards, etc. Big Bear Properties and their staff were wonderful though.

We met another family (4 adults, 5 kids total) and found the place very comfortable for our party. The kids loved the rec (pool, video games, tv) room and the adults loved being able to close the door to the recroom and socializing upstairs without the noise. The hottub was spacious (limited at 103F though) and the lid flipper provided privacy from the house behind which can see into the back yard. The place was clean and in fine condition. There was an abundance of communication from the checkin contact with regards to checkin time. He made the policies and procedures clear upon checkin. One heads up is that the person booking the property MUST absolutely be present with id and cc to check in (prop mgmt claimed this was a bylaw in Big Bear Lake). This was problematic for us in that I had planned to arrive later in a separate vehicle so my boys could play their baseball games before heading up to the cabin. Unfortately I couldn't update the name on the contract after booking to allow this, which was a bummer - we would have had the other family do the booking had we known this policy a priori.There was a playground at the end of the street which was fun for our 2 year old.

Very close proximity to Snow Summit and about less than 3mi away from the Village. The house itself is great for accommodating large group of families.

The house is massive! Although a bit quirky with the way the rooms are set up and laid out, there was plenty of room for our large group. We had read the other reviews about it being cold (some rooms were cold, some were hot, hard to regulate heat in a place that big) and brought firewood and a few space heaters. That helped a lot. The property was well stocked with the basics. This place definitely has a "cabin" feel, not luxurious by any means, but we were completely fine with that. It had a great set up for socializing. The adults and kids all had their own areas. Kids LOVED running around outside the property. Great location, very close to town and the ski hills! We see that is for sale, but hope we will get the chance to stay here again another time.

When first arriving at the home, we opened the doors and we loved how open the house was. The dining room, living room and kitchen were all open to each other which made the house seen bigger. There were signs all over the house with instructions on just about everything. We were very happy with the cleanliness of the home. We bbqed while we were there and the owner had left us with 2 propane tanks which was very nice. The spa outside was very nice (brand new) and spacious. It was great after a day of snowboarding. Usually when I stay in rentals the towels are usually very old and used out but there were so many towels and they were in great shape. We were 12 people who stayed in this home and slept compfortably. Our friends were renting a place the same weekend and we had enough room for them to come over and hang out with us. Overall great experience and I would definitely stay in this home again.

The cabin was beautiful and the staff were helpful and accommodating! We had such a great time here, there were 16 of us and it comfortably housed and slept us all. The view from the porch was amazing! We were definitely surprised with how beautiful this cabin was and the great location. It would have been better if the cabin had some basic kitchen appliances such as a noodle strainer and tongs. We had a large group and wanted to make spaghetti for dinner and bacon and eggs in the morning. These seem basic and weren’t available. Everything else was great!

We stayed at the "Evergreen Retreat" property that sleeps 14 people comfortably and is walking distance to Snow Summit Ski Resort. We had full capacity and invited other friends over and still felt there was plenty of space to socialize.Working with the staff at Big Bear Property Services was simple and they were very respectful (Employee Jeff was wonderful). As we did have a noise complaint or two from the local neighbor, Jeff would send us a friendly text reminder to keep everyone inside and try to keep it down. I would hands down work with them again and will stay at the Evergreen Retreat again as well. Only thing I may recommend is having the house stocked with a few cleaning supplies as we attempted to clean our mess without any. I brought extra paper towels and a couple bath towels that were definitely needed!! It would be nice to know in advance that we should have brought extra towels as we were still short with all the showers and many people getting in and out of the jacuzzi. But, it all still worked out and I will be coming back!Thank you for the wonderful stay! Amanda

First off, if you don't like stairs, look elsewhere. This place is high up on Moonridge, a warren of houses perched on hillsides, so most houses are on slopes. This one is no exception. We didn't care, though there was huffing and puffing bringing our stuff in. Other than that, the place was good for 3 kids under 8 with those stairs to go up and down, new books to read, and some board games to play. No outside area to play in, but it was cold so we mainly stayed inside when we were at the cabin. Place was stocked with basics for cooking/cleaning etc. though I would recommend a lighter. Two bathrooms with showers is a plus. The management was responsive to our needs which were very few. It's pretty close to town, but feels further away. Fireplace was awesome. No issues with heat. In general it was clean and welcoming.

This cabin is amazing! This is our second year renting this same cabin for my husband’s birthday celebration. This cabin is very clean with everything you need including a fully stocked kitchen and board games. Beds are VERY comfortable. Rental company was very professional and was quick in responding to any of my questions.

Perfect Cabin for a Group Retreat

Look no further - this cabin is perfect in every way. A group of 8 of us (4 couples) stayed here for the weekend and were blown away by how beautiful this cabin was right when we walked in the door.The spacious and open layout in the kitchen, dining, and living room area is great for entertaining, and the shuffleboard table is just the icing on the cake. We also enjoyed the hot tub which works perfectly. The cabin was fully stocked with everything we needed - even tons of board games for cozy nights in by the gas log fireplace (hint - don't bring firewood because you don't need it!). The master bed & bath was very nice and spacious - my only recommendation is to add a wardrobe or dresser to put clothes in since the closet was locked. The bunk room is not bad at all - the queen on the bottom bunk is still a good size. This room shares a Jack and Jill style bathroom with one of the king rooms (the one with the sliding mirror door closet).The other king room (with walk-in closet) is directly across from the 1st king room. The guests who stayed in that room used the main guest bath in the hallway. All bedrooms are very comfortable and clean and the carpet is in great condition. The bathrooms have beautiful granite counters, slate tile in the showers, and porcelain tubs / sliding glass doors (aside from master bath, which has a jet tub and stand up shower).You will find it hard to leave the cabin if you stay here... enjoy!

What a great experience, from start to finish! Our cabin was exactly what we were hoping for. We were met in person by Lewis & Victoria at the office who were very friendly and helpful. You can tell that the people working at Big Bear Property Services truly love their guests, and the work. They made sure that Our cabin was clean, cozy and fully stocked with everything we might need. Our spa / jacuzzi was already turned on and ready to go when we arrived. Every closet had extra clean blankets & pillows, (great for watching movies on the sectional) and the beds & linens felt so luxurious for a vacation rental.. we were suprised at the level of service, and quality of our rental, which was very affordable! All in all, an unexpected five star cabin & experience. Thanks Lewis & Victoria, we will definitely be back and will use your services from now on! 🙂

Rented this cabin for a weekend in August with family. Location was close to all need by stores and management was very helpful. Great place for family to get together with the open concept upstairs living and dinning area. We enjoyed the downstairs garage that was tuned into a rec pool room. The only issue was that the AC was not working and was very hot and stuffy. Also bring extra bath towels!Other than a few things this place is amazing and suited our needs. Will definitely be staying here for future Big Bear Adventures!

The house has all the amenities. We brought towels and pots and pans, but didn't need them. They even had extra large pots to cook for a large group/family. The fools ball table was a hit with the guys and the kids. The pool table was an out door pool table and was warped & only had 1 pool cue but it was still fun.It was a nice get away with all the conveniences of home.

Descent crash pad- a 3 Star

Review by

Rating: 3 out of 5
I would rate this cabin at a 3 star and I feel that is very fair. The space was great, good amount of room with the two units for about 8 people. The location is very good and the full enclosed yard is perfect to bring pets. Very safe. The beds were fine overall, but bringing your own bedding is a must. (which they do tell you to do in the information) Also the sofa beds are not very comfortable, but plenty of space to bring airbeds and such. Plenty of towels and those were all clean. The only other thing to note is that there were a lot of spider webs in and around the both units- especially the back one. I realize this is the mountains- but it did seem that the amount of webs and spiders we found indicated this did not have any attention. Needless to say we did not sit out on the back deck area and became aware of checking behind furniture. Again, some good things and a great crash type pad for a good size group.

This house was perfect. It was close to the marina so we could get our boat rental, it was extremely clean and well maintained and it was the perfect size for all of us to fit. The game room downstairs was great for hanging around late at night and was located so that others weren't disturbed if they wanted to go to sleep. I will be renting this location again.

Excellent Big Bear Cabin in a quiet, secluded area of Big Bear. Went in August. Easy reservations, checkin and checkout. Very clean accommodations, comfortable beds, great kitchen, and terrific hot tub. Plenty of space in dining area and living room for eating, games, and entertainment. Really enjoyable neighborhood to stroll around. All on one level, but need to go up flight of stairs to access cabin. Soap, shampoo, conditioner provided. Basic load of linens, kitchen utensils, cookware, tableware, etc. If you think you need extras (eg towels, laundry detergent, kitchen trash bags) or have special kitchen needs (special knife, spices, coffee) try and bring your own. Dollar Tree store and Vons (next to each other) has just about anything you forgot to bring. 15 min or less drive to most parts of Big Bear Lake. Many places to rent bikes, kayaks, outdoor equipment. Would definitely rent again.

We had a great vacation with our kids and grandkids. The layout was perfect for us. Lots of space to spread out inside and just a block from the lake. Which was great for going back to the cabin for lunch and bathroom breaks. Lots of room in front yard for the kayaks and canoe too. Property management staff was amazing!! So helpful, polite and understanding. Downside for some people was lots and lots of little things needed to be repaired. And house keeping could do a better job. But overall we loved our stay.

Upstairs couch was ripped and had several stains.

The property itself is in good condition. The outside spaces could use some general clean-up (spider webs covering the staircase when we walked up),and it would have been nice to have more outdoor furniture; but it was great to have the BBQ and jacuzzi. The property management company was very attentive (ex. dropped off ant spray when I notified them we found a few ant trails throughout the house, allowed early check-in). There were differences in things listed on VRBO versus the contract property company has you sign (check out time was listed as 11 am on VRBO but 10 am in the contract) so make sure to read the contract carefully. The kitchen is a great size and has most of the basics. Make sure to bring your own foil, plastic bags, AND trash bags because those are not provided (they provide one or two trash bags but that is it). Bedrooms are a good size and they put out extra towels which was nice to have on hand. Overall it was a good experience.

We were originally suppose to stay at a different location however 2 hours before we were suppose to check in we get a call and have to decide on an alternative location as we are on our way there. We were told the bank was suppose to meet the owners Saturday for financial problems. We drove by the place numerous of times because we were doing a tourney at the park hence we chose that location and noticed that people were vacationing there. When I question this "Story" the rental manager told me well its their rental. and was rude about it. The place we ended up using the Jacuzzi was filthy. It had black stuff coming out of the jets. The sheets in the master room's Sheets had hair all over it with black smudge so I had to clean the sheets before we could use it .

Two families stayed at Canyon Retreat Log Home. The main cabin had three bedrooms, an upstairs loft with TV, downstairs living room for watching TV or the roaring fire, and a kitchen.The "garage/2nd cabin" was great. The garage has been turned into a game room with a pool table, foosball and a dart board. Upstairs, is a bedroom with a queen bed and a pull out sofa. Plus, there is an outdoor jacuzzi. And the property is gated so if you bring your dog you can be sure they are safe.

We loved the location as the kids could go sledding without leaving the property. I accidentally left some items behind and the property manager was very nice about sending them back to me promptly. There were several living room areas which worked well for our group as we had lots of kids going to sleep early, so there was a space where we could hang out after the kids went to bed.

We had two families (2 kids each) stay here. There is a large wooded area in the back that our kids were able to play and sled on (be careful with some drops!). It was up away from the commotion so was generally quiet. However, as we were right next to the Bear Mountain runs, the snowmakers at night were a bit bothersome. Overall, however, we all liked the place and would use it again.

Nice home, close to the slopes. 3 downsides: 1. Poor water pressure for showers 2. The decks were dripping water from snow melt constantly over the entryway so it was a constant barrage of cold water while coming and going in the house 3. The entry stairs were dangerously slippery, there needs to be traction on the stairs. I slipped a couple of times even while holding the rail knowing how slick the stairs were. If the later 2 things were addressed this would be my go to place in Big Bear, but as it is I would not use that rental again.

Appeared to be professionally decorated. Adequatly stocked. Somewhat disorganized kitchen cabinets. Needed paper towels. TV's were good, but instructions needed. Remote didn't work to turn on the cable box, you had to actually push the button on the box. Several minor issues. Guest house toilet didn't flush properly. Toilet paper holder was broken off when we arrived. Heater in guest house was so loud it woke me up when it went on and again when it went off. I tried to set the fan on auto so that it would stay on through the night, but this feature didn't work. We choose a rental with a flat driveway intentionally and assumed that the snow would be moved prior to our arrival. It wasn't. Also we thought we would have use of the garage. Our mistake. The garage is a nice game room that the kids did use. One foosball handle broken. Hot water comes our freezing cold at first then goes to scalding temperature. I am surprised the faucets do not have temperature regulators as this is dangerous for small children. The bed in the guest room was good. Linens were good. Pillows were pathetic. Towels are cheap & small so bring your own. Easy to find, GPS picked it up.

This is an older home with new additions added on. The house is worn but very clean. This made for a more comfortable stay as we had 7 children with us. The house has so many rooms that the kids had epic Nerf Gun battles to occupy them when not outside. The hot tub is very very nice and theres a front yard and backyard for the kiddies to play. The manager is over the top nice and his communication is excellent. The rooms are spacious and the dual kitchen scenario was fun. There were 3 familys and we never felt crowded. Bring your own knives if you are making in depth meals but we had enough pots and pans to cook for 13 people each day. Would stay here again.

NOT AS MUCH PRIVACY FOR THE DOWNSTAIRS BEDROOM AREAS BECAUSE THERE ARE TWO BEDROOMS THAT MUST ACCESS THE REST OF THE HOUSE THROUGH THE VERY LARGE BATHROOM AND BEDROOM.KITCHEN WAS EQUIPPED SOMEWHAT... I WOULD SUGGEST BRINGING YOUR OWN POTS AND PANS. IF YOU ARE UP DURING THE WINTER WHEN IT IS VERY COLD, BRING FIREWOOD AND YOU CAN USE THE SMALL ROOM THAT GOES TO SPA AS ADDITIONAL COLD STORAGE AS THAT ROOM IS COLDER THAN THE FRIDGE!! WE LIKED THE SPACE OF THE HOUSE. THERE IS A SNOW SLIDE IN THE BACK YARD THAT THE KIDS HAD A BLAST ON.IF YOU GET SNOWED IN, PUT YOUR CHAINS ON RIGHT AWAY AND BRING ADDITIONAL SHOVELS TO DIG YOURSELF OUT.

The Netflix didn't work, and the people at the other end of the number I called were not helpful at all. We didn't get the pot holders that were promised to be delivered the day we arrived. There was a strange smell that came and went in the billiards room. The TV in the larger upstairs bedroom didn't work. It would turn on, then turn off if you pushed any button on the remote at all. The pool table had not pool sticks that were any good at all. Other than that, the place was fine, and we enjoyed ourselves. Don't get me wrong, we still had fun, the place was big enough for our needs, it just wasn't as nice as we were hoping and the management staff just didn't seem to care that much for the few times we asked them for something.

We chose a downhill mountain biking adventure in Big Bear to celebrate our 8 year anniversary, and, gotta say this anniversary will be hard to top. This is our third time visiting Big Bear but first time taking advantage of a professionally managed property; definitely the way to go. The property manager was super easy to work with and we were impressed with how clean & spacious the house was. We we took full advantage of the game room, shooting pool while SNF payed on the big screen in the background and soaked in the hot tub after a hard day of downhill mountain biking at Snow Summit (which was only a few blocks away)! We grabbed coffee & handmade pastries at our favorite coffee shop in, "The Village" the next morning (again, few blocks away). If you're looking for a clean, well managed & centrally located home in Big Bear, this is it! Can't wait to go back!

This property was overall, very useful. The grounds are beautiful and expansive. It's a big house so there's lots of space to spread out. We were a group of 11 and it fit us fine. The bedrooms were as described, which is a plus. There are light fixtures that need to be repaired in a few of the bedrooms.Management was responsive to needs, especially when it came to the broken coffee maker! Being coffee drinkers, we were nervous until management showed up quickly with a new coffee maker. For a big house, there aren't enough dishes and silverware for bigger parties, so it's recommended to buy plastic / paper or bring your own. In addition, they don't supply trash bags, so bring trash bags as well (trash needs to be hauled to another location).There is ample parking and the house is situated nearby to all amenities Big Bear has to offer. The property has a nice hot tub and even a cool water fountain in the backyard.

The cabin was good but it needs some improvement. The carpet was old and looked dirty and needs to be replaced. Has a great living and kitchen area with new updated counters. Some of the plates had chips and need to be thrown away but there were plenty of good ones for us to use.The baking trays needs to be replaced. The third bedroom is suitable for kids and not for adults. Some of the closets and drawers had some things which probably the owners had stored there. Would have been nice to have some more deck chairs with a table for outdoor seating. There were two chairs in the front and two really low chairs on the back deck. It is quite a distance up from Big Bear Blvd with but in a nice quiet neighbourhood. The property management was attentive to our needs and responded in a timely manner. They had the unit ready for our use with the hot tub turned on when we arrived. Overall we had a great time at the cabin.

Yeah, the photos look nice. And when you arrive you are thinking " great the photos are real". But once you actually start to unpack your stuff and settle in you find that if you look closer so many things are broken, damaged, dirty, or missing. It's not like you notice all these things immediately, or I would have called the manager and had him out to fix. It's that as you use the dishwasher, or go to use the BBQ, or go look at the hot tub, or use the utensils you see that things are amiss. I sent the manager a list of these items that need fixing when we left ( we were only there for two nights) and he was polite and said he would address them. But I can not be the first or only one who has complained about the rough, dirty, or damaged things in this cabin?

The inside of the house was also well kept and clean. There is ample room to hang out and can sleep a lot of people. We had a nice time hanging out in the spa and we used the pool table and bbq. The town is really close and there are some nice breakfast restaurants nearby. We are definitely going to come back during the winter, since it is literally right down the street from Snow Summit.

Where do I even start? Well first of all the cabin was extremely easy to find, centrally located near The Village and Big Bear Lake itself. The property manager Lewis arrived at the cabin as soon as we had told him we were up the mountain. He did an amazing walk thru and showed us where everything was in the cabin, all the way down to the extra pillows and blankets. There is a private back patio with an amazing jacuzzi that makes you feel like your at the spa, perfect after a long day of skiing! There is a roaring sound system down stairs that we plugged our iPod into while we played pool on our off nights of relaxing. Everything at the house was immaculate and exceeded our expectations GREATLY! The rooms were great in size and the beds very comfortable. This cabin was absolutely incredible, so much so that we almost never wanted to leave to go out! We will be booking it again next novemeber, maybe even sooner for the summer since it is so close to the lake! I without a doubt will be mentioning this cabin along with Big Bear Property Services to all of my family and friends!! AMAZING BIRTHDAY TRIP!Thank you Lewis Stewart!

This is a great house in a great location. Love the layout inside, but pool table was not in living room as pictured, actually in garage. There were only a few issues for our entire stay. One is that any snow on the balcony drips water directly down to steps and front door. Very slippery if not salt on steps, but drips all over you. (We asked for the salt and they brought it.) Also, no door to the outside/hot tub except front door. No back door, or side door. And the master shower sprays directly on glass door, and leaks all over marble floor. Again, very slippery! Otherwise, the stay was wonderful, and the house very well equipped.

We had a wonderful white Christmas at Columbine Retreat! We felt right at home with a beautiful kitchen opening up to the family room. Breathtaking views from kitchen window to watch our kids play and sled in the snow! Unforgettable experience and great contact/service with specific easy instructions for the property.

The home was in a very good location and easy to find with lots of parking space. It was clean and very spacious. We had a problem with one of the pullouts and we needed more blankets. The property manager was available to help us. We had a great time.

Property is well located and convenient to the ski slopes. Property is in good shape and everything seemed to work. I would recommend you bring your own pillows as they were very uncomfortable. Other than that a good place to stay.

This was the perfect place to spend an extended family Thanksgiving. The accommodations were top notch, very clean, cozy and well appointed. Great kitchen with everything we needed to prepare our turkey dinner. Comfy beds and the grandparents really enjoyed escaping from the madness to their own private guest house! Great customer service, will definitely be back.

The property was very nice and clean. We would go back.As we went for Thanksgiving there were a few items that the house was not stocked with. Lewis from the management company went out and purchased these items for us to use. Incredible service. He was very helpful and friendly. The only reason I am not giving a 5 star is that the house was supposed to be smoke free but there was definitely a smokers smell in the house. Not management's fault as people don't always think the rules apply to them and smoke where they shouldn't.

We had great stay for 4 days at the sky high cabin. There was 15 of us to include 7 children and the downstairs area was the kids area which worked out perfect. I would definitely recommend this album.

30th Surprise Birthday

First the good things: Photos look exactly like the cabin. It was exceptionally clean when arriving and smelled like clean laundry (loved it). It had plenty of space for all the guests that stayed and the ones visiting for just the day. Living area and kitchen were big enough for everyone to mingle and hang out. The deck outside was large and didn't distance all the guests around the place when they smoked a cigarette. There was also a disposal for the cigarettes which was very convenient. Master bedroom was amazing. It was very spacious and super comfortable. Pictures don't do it justice. The other bedrooms were great and loved that they had another restroom downstairs. Pool table was as promised and provided weekend-long entertainment. Jacuzzi was hot and stayed hot all weekend (we made sure to always keep the top on when not in use.) Property manager was fast in responding to texts/calls and was readily available if we needed anything. Loved that we had wifi b/c my service was terrible. Yard was HUGE! And the view was biggest concern was that the fridge did not cool down and we had to put all our food in coolers and drinks outside in the cool air. It would kind of cool down during the night, but would warm up by early morning. A few things had to be disposed of. Freezer worked just fine though. I read that the dishes were to be cleaned by the residents that stayed. Unfortunately, the group that stayed before us did not clean the dishes and we had to clean every dish before use. Because this was a surprise birthday, I wish we had access to the garage to hide my car, but we ended up parking in a dirt lot down the street instead. The only other thing I would maybe suggest would be to provide cleaning supplies and oven mits/pot holders. We had to use a washcloth b/c we didn't realize there were none until after using the oven. I cleaned everything (counters, tables, chairs) with soap and the provided sponge.

This cabin was absolutely perfect! I took my boyfriend and 12 of his friends up there for a birthday weekend away and it worked out great. I am always nervous renting properties because most of the time the pictures are always so much better then what it really is but with this house the pictures didn't do it justice. It was beautiful and extremely clean. But the best part was the view! Both decks look out to the lake and sitting in the spa looking a out to that view was awesome. There are neighbors but they are not too close which is nice. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Lewis the property manager was a delight to work with too. For anyone considering renting this, don't think twice and do it. It is so worth it. 🙂 I can't wait to go back already.

Everything about the cabin was great! Very clean and a nice floor plan. My only complaint would be the mattress in the master bedroom. It was very firm and I had a little trouble sleeping.

This cabin has a large living room that is perfect for a group gathering. The cabin was very clean when we arrived. Also, the back patio is spacious and also perfect for a group to spend time on. It is located only a few minutes away from the ski resort and would have been perfect if my stay was during the snow season.

Nice place but needs lots of TLC.

The glass in the kitchen cabinet doors were covered in fingerprints. The kitchen and bathroom cabinets are in poor condition. Lots of scratches and dirty. They should be refinished or replaced.The white grout on the kitchen counters has turned brown from stains and doesn't look very clean. Counter tops need to be replaced.Barely a complete set of glasses and plates for six people. Ice maker in refrigerator was clogged with an ice dam and wouldn't dispense. When the ice was cleared, no new ice was made even though the ice maker was turned on. Dishwasher front needed to be cleaned.Having wall-to-wall carpets in the bathrooms seems like a nasty, germ-ridden idea, especially around the toilets (there were clean toilet rugs). Overall the carpeting throughout needed to be cleaned and the walls need to be repainted as there are lots of marks and scratches. Front screen door screen was ripped and the door gets jammed. Needs to be replaced.The beds were comfortable and spa was clean and heated when we arrived. This property would live up to its photos better (and be worth the price) if it was kept in better condition.

WE LOVED IT BUT ..

The pictures look just like the cabin which was great. A big concern for me was the appliances. The fridge took 2 days to get cold, we stayed for 3 so you can imagine our frustration having to freeze all our food. We called the landlord who was fully aware it did not work. The bathroom sinks would clog & the oven knobs were loose making it hard to turn the gas off. Yes this sounds like a big no no BUT they are all things that can be fixed so we managed because everything else was wonderful. The jaccuzzi was perfect, i wish there was more lighting back there but we managed. the house was extremely clean & came with every pot & pan you could think of. The beds and couches were like heaven. The landlord did not disturb us and remained in contact when needed. I give this place 4 stars. A little tip for the landlord, maybe buy darker bathroom towels and update the appliances. All & all, my friends and I would stay here again. Its close to everything and we could see the lake from the balcony. Very quite neighborhood and perfect for selfies lol

My extended family and I rented this beautiful cabin nestled in Big Bear Lake and absolutely loved every second we were there. There were so many rooms available which was perfect for a family of our size - approximately 4-5 families fit in the cabin. The game room was a great benefit especially for the kids, the dining room which although it could have been bigger was still a great communal space. Also loved the Netflix and TV in the living room. Hot tub was a HUGE plus. Would definitely recommend and return to this cabin if we are ever back in the area.

Nice Place overall

Enjoyed the weekend with 6 of us staying there. A couple of improvements would make me give it a higher rating. The 10am check out time is just too early, you feel like you lose a whole day! The spa looked clean and had a floating chlorine dispenser, but unfortunately had an unpleasant odor. We did not notify the management of this, so I really can't complain too loudly. As a positive, when we did not find dishwasher detergent or enough dish towels,1 small only, a delivery was promptly made of both items.

Wonderful house with the perfect location. Quiet, tranquil neighborhood. Great breeze when opening all the doors and windows. Screens need to be repaired that had holes in them; we had lots of flying things at night! The front & back screen door need to be redone as well as they do not fit & leave gaping holes for bugs to enter. The chemicals in the hot tub were very strong. However, the deck & beautiful area in the back made a great place to relax. Great home & we will be back!

I give this property a 5 star recommendation for several reasons. All of the 4 bedrooms are set up with king beds and all rooms resemble a master bedroom in all rooms. We did have an issue with the stove not getting hot enough and the next day there was a brand new stove installed. The coffee maker had a leak and there was a new one installed immediately.Lewis is a great help to the renters and property owners. The cabin is beautiful, great for multiple families, close to everything, nice quiet neighborhood and we did see a Bear out walking around digging in trash. Great stay in a great place! We will be back!

What a fantastic place! This property, tucked away high in the hills, was the perfect place to bring our kids for the weekend. Once you walk up the stairs to the front door, I was happy to see that everything is on one level. The decor in the common area is gorgeous. Comfy beds (My daughter said it was the best night sleep she'd had in a long time!) There is plenty of space in the backyard for sledding on the property. Loved it!

We so much enjoyed our recent stay at the Moonridge Retreat. I stayed with a group of high school students - a mock trial team and we found that the house was comfortable and large enough for 18, it could probably have held more comfortably. I was very happy with the level of privacy. The kitchen was large and had a nice open floor plan. All the beds were comfortable and we loved the fireplaces throughout the house. One of the best aspects of the stay was the wonderful care we received from the property manager. He brought us firewood and helped us to get the fires started. All the communication and answers to our questions were prompt and helpful. Overall we had a great experience and will plan to stay again.

I loved my stay in this beautiful home, on a quiet woodsy street. The management staff was very easy to work with, friendly, and helpful. The beds and sofa are very comfortable, and the entire place was extremely clean. It was an added plus to park in the garage, since the ground was covered with snow, with some icy patches. I saw snow melt in the garage, but did not use it. Sleds were also available. I treasure the memory of the hot jacuzzi experience, under the stars, surrounded by snow. The location is a maze of turns to find, but no problem with a navigation system. Nice view.

We had a rather large group of people stay at this property for two nights for a retreat and it suit our needs perfectly. It's incredibly spacious and well-maintained. We made frequent trips to the lake down the street and into town, which is close by foot or by car. The management was incredibly helpful and accommodating and ensured all our needs were met. It ended up exceeding our expectations and being the perfect property for us.
