Warm, Cozy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
This is the absolute perfect place for a romantic getaway with your significant other. If I could give 10 stars I would! Donna was very welcoming, and really thought of everything! The cottage was nestled way up in Sky Forest amongst the beautiful pines, and was super cozy in the mornings and evenings with the accompanying fog. The deck is perfect for taking in the sounds of nature while enjoying your morning coffee. The shower had amazing water pressure, and the bed was so big and cozy that it made sleeping in very easy. This cottage is also perfectly located near some wonderful restaurants. We visited Hortencia's Mexican Restaurant on Saturday night, after a day of travel and hiking, and found ourselves enjoying some delicious Mexican classics in a very comfortable and cozy environment. Also, please visit the Big Bear Sandwich Shop! The employees were so nice and hospitable and on top of that the sandwiches were delicious!! I had their Reuben sandwich and a bowl of clam chowder on a cool foggy day, and I found myself having feelings of euphoria :) The best part is that both of these restaurants were within walking distance of this lovely cottage. We will absolutely be visiting this mountain cottage again, and you should too!!

Perfect Getaway!

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary at Donna's cabin! It was everything we needed to check out of our busy lives and just spend time with each other! The cabin was so cozy nestled back in the woods! Huge trees as far as you can see! It's in a great location as well with just a 5 minute walk to the local pizzeria. We will definitely be returning!

We were greeted w/ soft music, fresh fruit & treat
  • 4 of 5
It was very refreshing to open the door, and hear our favorite music playing.
We snacked on fresh fruits and pastry, sat outside in the shade of tall trees,
and enjoyed the ambiance created by our hosts. Donna and Ken had prepared for our every need, and we appreciated the outdoorsy decorations and accommodations. .
When we needed help, Ken provided audiovisual expertise. Donna's eagerness to keep us comfortable and entertained showed in her questions about each part of our stay.
We loved the location, the quality, and the experience, and we plan to return soon!

This place is beautiful and so relaxing with all the comforts of home even wi-fi. The owners are great and the neighbors, too. This is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of southern California. It is close by and easy to get to. I sure hope to return again one day for another little mini vacation. You can't go wrong here. Thanks again

Literally under the tall alpine woods in the forest, just 1/4 mile off of Hwy 18 - Quiet, serene and just wonderful. Bird watching, and nature at it's best.
