This house has something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5
My family loves this home. From the time we drove up to the property, we knew we were going to enjoy it. It is great for summer and winter which is not true for many of the available properties. Some are good for skiers, some for boaters; but this one has it all!. This is our third stay. We have tried summer, fall and a holiday. I really agree with the person who mentioned how much we appreciated the fact that the owners left many staples in the pantry, making it very easy to make any type of meal without countless trips to the store with a list! You can really have a full holiday or family meal and find everything you need to make a great table. The owner is very accessible and the first time we booked it, he spent alot of time ensuring that the house was a good match for our expectations.

There is no beating the views! Most of us parked on the porch every afternoon to watch the sun on the water down to the dam. The owners has made a nice beach area since I was there so there is a nice new option for sitting in the sand, out of the wind, or down at the dock. It is a great family home, and we will be back soon!

We really enjoyed this house

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time here. I've stayed in Big Bear many times and usually have rented a different place each summer looking for just the right place. I think we've found it! The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, dishes etc. We prepared several meals for a large group. The pantry had several items in it which I was happy to see, as I usually bring my own spices etc. but you don't have to, it had them all. There was a little bit of everything in the fridge and pantry,nice to not have to buy everything up there. There was some hard liquor left and we enjoyed that too! The beds are all comfy, bed linens and towels are great. Loved all the little sitting areas and the little ones loved the new sand area the owners had recently put in. The deep water dock and sitting area is really nice, we enjoyed the afternoons sitting down there. No problems with launching the water toys. It was nice to not have to worry about moss in the exhausts! This house has lots of room to spread out, and it is a work in progress, but we found everything to be nice and clean. We had no problems with the hot water and we had 8 in our group. We even had a pool tournament down stairs. Our family really liked this house and we had a great time for the 10 days we were there. The owners were great, checked with us several times to address issues if we had any. We will definitely be back!!

Needs some work yet.

My family stayed in July 2014 with great expectations. Upon arrival we thought the exterior of the house was nice and charming. Upon entering the inside we were a bit disappointed.
Pros: nice seating with fire pit in front, outside.
2 grills for BBQing.
Boat Dock
Nice updated downstairs master suite.
Cons: The kitchen is old, which is fine, but it needs a good scrub down.
kitchen island was not attached, almost fell on my keister.
Living room and downstairs furniture looked like it was from a yard sale.
master suite had a stain on the comforter
downstairs bathroom not really usable due to it's size.
personal items throughout the house
On average everything else was "ok" but we did expect something a bit nicer.
Would I rent this again, possibly if the price was lower or some things were fixed.

Great Place!

My family spent a week at this wonderful house. There was plenty of room for everyone. The dock on the water was great. I brought my boat and for a week, we just relaxed. The kitchen was perfectly set and allowed us to make some wonderful meals at times using the BBQs that are provided with the house. The rear deck on the main floor was a perfect place to sit and watch the sunset or to watch the boats go by. The owner was great to work with. I’d stay again.

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5
This home did not meet our expectations at all. Was not very clean and the furniture and condition of the place was more like a fraternity house than a top dollar retreat.
The fourth bathroom should have a disclosure on its condition. No one in my group would dare go in to the shower, and if you are tall, your knees may hit the door while you are on the toilet.
The "master bath" on the second floor sounded as if you were going to fall thru the floor. The island in the kitchen is not bolted down, so don't lean against it, it will slide.
The furnishing smelled like pee and there was pet hair everywhere although this cabin is listed as "no pets".
If you come with children, be aware there is a picture with the "F" word on the wall and tons of booze out, not in a cabinet. There was so much of the owners personal food/stock in the pantry we had no room for our own groceries. There were at least 5 burnt out light bulbs and the linens were not clean (had stains). The extra linens in the closet were so rumpled up it was unclear if they were clean or not.
Good thing we had the boat dock and our own boat to use because that is the only part of the house we enjoyed....the outside and the lake! Will not return to this cabin.

Owner's Response: As the owner, I'm quite surprised by the review as these guests told me they had a wonderful time. I don't agree with anything they said in this review.
The house is very clean and does not look like a fraternity house. The pictures of the house and funiture speak for themselves and are very accurate pictures. We have been constantly improving the house by remodeling bathrooms and putting in hardwood floors.
We have had many guests thank us for leaving a pantry with staples for their use. The pantry is quite large and has pleanty of empty shelving for groceries. The firdge is brand new and empty for the cold groceries.
The linens are all high quality and replaced often.
I suggest anyone reading that review consider the many other very positive reviews we have.
It's a great house!
