“Paradise Indeed!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What a delight it is to stay at this fantastic getaway. I have had the pleasure twice and certainly hope to visit again.

I imagine it is a wonderful romantic getaway, however my visits were of a different nature. I enjoyed solitude on my first stay. The quiet time and beautiful environment inspired me to finish writing a book I authored. In addition, I brought my electric keyboard and the creative atmosphere was perfect for songwriting.

Recently my sister joined me. We enjoyed reconnecting and reminiscing about our childhood memories camping in Big Bear with our parents and grandfather. Toasting to raising our children and reflecting on the different seasons we have encountered (and endured!) was priceless.

I also enjoyed the decor (so cozy and quaint), hot tub, BBQ grill, Starbucks coffee, and great smelling shampoo/conditioner/lotion provided. Another perk while cooking is listening to the musical CDs recorded by Guy (what a talent). Elaine provides fantastic recipes too.

I couldn't recommend this experience more!

“Perfect for a couples getaway!”
Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very cute and cozy place. Perfect for a mini getaway. Everything is within a couple miles driving distance and mini mart is within walking distance. The property has everything you need and was beyond my expectations. Will definitely stay here again.

“Relaxing in quaint luxury”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

A lovely wood panelled cabin beautifully decorated. The cabin was cozy, but not too small. We brought our German Shepherd with us, and there was plenty of room. There is a large deck for relaxing, taking a hot tub, or eating out under the stars. The cabin was quiet, the bed comfortable, and with some of Guy's music for easy listening.

We loved our stay and will be back!

“Great Relaxing Stay!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We traveled to Big Bear to get out of the desert for a couple of days and stayed at "Almost Paradise" The cabin and all the amenities were all top notch. The property manager Kenny as well as the owner Guy made sure our stay was everything we hoped for. I would return for a repeat visit and highly recommend this property as a great romantic getaway,

We stayed at this cabin, twice, for a week each time. It is such a cozy cabin and it sets a great stage for romance. The hot tub is amazing! We will continue to use this cabin, everytime we are in Big Bear..I rate it a 10, all the way around.. love, love this place!
