“Just like in the magazines”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This was our first trip to Big Bear, we have recently relocated to California from New Zealand and were told we had to make this trip to the mountains. We chose to make a long weekend visit with our children aged 11 and 9 years. This cottage proved to be the perfect choice for us, close to the lake, village and with a few family-friendly restaurants within walking distance too. As soon as we opened the door we were in love - it is instantly inviting, with a lovely log cottage type feel/ look and it warmed up quickly with central heating and later a log fire (we arrived on a particularly cold spring day). It felt and smelt clean, had lovely soft carpet in the bedrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, up to date bathroom, nice linen on the beds and towels in the bathroom. We were toasty warm throughout our stay indoors, and outdoors we could catch the sun in the large backyard with picnic table and clean, well maintained spa, or our children's favourite place was out front on the swing seat or rope swing in the tree - very quiet and peaceful neighbourhood too. We had no trouble booking this property, getting all the information we needed, or accessing the key on arrival. We only wish we could have stayed for longer, but we will be back!

“No better place to have had our 1st Wedding Anniversary”
Reviewed May 7, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our first wedding anniversary was spent at this cabin. It has everything you need including someone close by if you need,them and an owner who was at the end of a text immediately at 9pm.....when I needed him to tell me how to work the tv! Brilliant. The owner is well documented as caring, and as being a good communicator, it's why we chose to book one of his cabins' from prior reviews and they weren't wrong. The cabin was great, better than the pictures show' the fire was magical, the sofa super comfy for putting legs up on the husband with a glass of wine in hand! The hot tub was lovely! The BBQ and outdoor seating were great too...all ready to go with propane'they think of the little things, the fire lighter, the dish soap, the extra blankets for the bed as well as doggie poo bags and duck feed! Nice to have things like salt and pepper and seasonings too... I brought loads of inns for my stew, not the salt and pepper tho! Brilliant cabin, lovely owner...5* stay....(our dogs tail didn't stop wagging and she loved sunning herself in the enclosed garden, especially when we had the logs on the fire! Bliss......we will be back....

“will definitely stay here again!!”
Reviewed March 21, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

3 days of perfect relaxing mountain cozy.. thanks Guy and Elaine for putting together a charming, clean, homey atmosphere! The kitchen had more to offer in utensils, cookware and ease of use than in my own home! The bed was warm, comfortable and great for a bad back.. The little cabin was beautifully remodeled in warm tones, wood, slate and done superbly to make one feel relaxed after a long day on the ski slopes or out about in the nearby village.. Great locations, vibe and all around experience .. Can't wait to go back!!

“This cabin was perfect for my family!”
Reviewed February 18, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This was my first time up to Big Bear Lake and I didn't know what to expect, good thing we stayed at Guy's cabin, which was AMAZING. We have a very active 5 year old boy and the cabin is a 5 minute walk to a nearby playground right by the lake, which was a perfect place to take him everyday and play in the park and the snow. The cabin was even better than the pictures and so cozy and well maintained. Every inch of the place is clean and polished and well taken care of, but with that rustic cabin feeling. My husband and his brother were pleasantly surprised that I rented such a nice place and we all cooked and played games, and made some great memories. We went to a great Mexican food place down the street called Sonora Cantina- SO good. And snow tubing was so fun for my little boy at Snow Drift Snow Tubing Park. I can't wait to go back to this cabin next year!!
Also Guy was very easy to book with and promptly answered any questions we had! He recommended places when asked and was very accomodating.

“Fabulous! What was described and what we saw online was exactly what we got! Perfect!”
Reviewed January 31, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Thank you Guy for providing us with such a fabulous opportunity for a winter getaway! You were very attentive and positive throughout our process. We loved the cabin! Loved the location, close to everything. It was exactly what you shared online and described. Everything was perfect! Even our dogs enjoyed their stay. They had a blast in the snow! I saw this cabin online a year ago, but didn't have the opportunity to get away then. When the opportunity came around this year, there was no other place we even considered, and one of the best decisions we made. Looking forward to going back again soon.

Cabin was great with all the amenities you could need and with the bonus of a nice big wood burning fire place and an awesome hot tub. Will definitely stay here again and found Guy to be super responsive to any questions we had.

“Amazing property owner!”
Reviewed November 12, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Disclaimer: I did NOT actually stay at the cabin so I can't comment on that (although it looked adorable in the pictures). We booked the cabin in August for a Dec. stay. It was a non-refundable reservation. My family's financial situation changed a few months after making the reservation and my husband was VERY stressed about $$ and affording the cabin. I explained the situation to Guy (the property owner) and he was VERY understanding and accommodate us. I had already singed a contract stating I would pay the full amount and I probably would have been on the hook for it if he had said no. I'm incredibly grateful to Guy and if our financial situation changes and we are able to vacation, this is the first place I'm going.
