Beautiful exterior...ho hum interiorPlace was decent but with a few minor tweaks it could have been great. For example, the bathrooms are very dated (as is the kitchen), some fixtures in bathroom were broken, very few dishes and cooking items.

Cozy & relaxingour stay at Columbine home was very pleasant. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. Restrooms clean and fully stocked. Jacuzzi was awesome. Living room was very comfy and cozy. Master bedroom was great. Overall house was very clean and I would recommend. The only suggestion to make is to add a TV In 2nd bedroom that has queen bed. Property management company was excellent.

Would Never Ever Stay Here Or Recommend AgainIt's hard to explain my distaste. First the pictures are deceiving. Next the area is not good, way off the beaten track. The home is NOT warm and fuzzy. No way people live there and call it their home. The kitchen is not stocked..Salt... that s it...period.. a roll of paper towels and a sponge..Plates,pots and pans , utensils and thats it !

Perfect secluded but close to town family getawayWe went so that my family could enjoy eachothers company as well as beautiful California; play cards, board games, eat homemade meals at night, outdoor activity by day.
Everything was as described on the website and even better, we took a LOT of supplies & didn't need to the cabin had it all a turkey roaster, tea kettle, blender, even legos, board games and shampoo etc no need to take much. Seriously I have stayed in some cabins and bigger ones but there was something about this one besides the amenities there was love in the air. I have at LEAST 6 people who have asked me for the information so they can book their next family getaway. Thank you to the owners for sharing!

Lovely cabin in great location!Easy organized check-in, great location, cozy and clean cabin. We had a wonderful time. If you bring a dog keep them close by as there were a lot of coyotes and a pack hanging out pretty much in the front yard. We would definitely stay again. A few suggestions though: the kitchen was really dark, It needs more lighting, more towels would be good especially with the jacuzzi.

Lovely cabinLoved the cabin. Everything went smoothly. We did bring extra towels, toilet paper, trash bags and foil--as per earlier reviews. Everything was clean. The light in the kitchen needed replacing--it was very dim. We enjoyed the TV's, too.

Great Cabin for family/couples stay!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.

Overall not bad, but would change a few thingsThe 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.

I booked this almost last minute on Fathers Day weekend through my Home Away App. The cost and fees were just great. Nice quiet neighbor hood. 10 minutes drive from Big Bear Blvd.
Cabin was clean, Furnished beatifuly. Kitchen was fully stocked. Lots of movies, games, even a telescope to view the stars at night.
My family & loved it

Great weekend getawayThe owner was very responsive and helped facilitate our requests. As others have mentioned, the property is not 100% spotless but it was mostly carpet stains. The important parts like sinks, showers, and bathrooms were all very clean. The kitchen and living areas were also very nice. The property was very kid friendly and on a very quiet street. I'd book again.

Nice cabin in a quiet neighbourhoodThe 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.

Big Bear Vacation homeNice home. Could use some upgrades like new screens on the windows, summer time gets warm! given the aspect of the sun and direction that the house sits the house stays very warm in the evenings. Fans would be nice. Walkway needs repair significant trip hazard while walking in the dark or carrying bags.
Great trip otherwise!

ColumbineLoved the living room area- bedrooms and baths were clean. Kitchen was okay- would have liked a clean sponge, grout dirty and some utensils(spatulas,etc) were old and dirty.

Beautiful view and stayWe 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.

Great CabinEverything 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.
October 6th, 20154 out of 5 stars
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.

Nice Place overallEnjoyed 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.

Great houseWonderful 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!

A Short GetawayWe had a great visit. Quiet neighborhood, peaceful back sitting area. We will definitely come back. It was great to be able to bring our dog.

Mountain GetawayWhat 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!

Beautiful Home!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.
