Great and Cozy place but lacking some amenitites
This place is beautiful. A few weeks ago, a group of friends and i decided to take a trip up here. Due to the snow, we did have a hard time coming up here. First things first, do not use google maps to go to this house during the snowing times. Google maps leads you to this very steep hill that most non-AWD cannot go up. Best bet is to just go down Cienega until it becomes waterville dr. One of the cars that were coming to this house had his chains break because it led us to a very steep hill once we got off big bear lake dr. But when we got here, at around 10am, there was so much snow in the driveway/parking that we had to shovel our way to make room for 3 cars to fit. We discussed this with the property manager but she stated that the person who was plowing the snow was up all night plowing the previous night but it snowed that much more, so nothing we could do but to start shoveling since our cars were blocking the road, and people were honking for us to get off the road. So we plowed for 2-3 hours and luckily a tractor came and helped us move the snow around 12-1pm. Because of this, it took away from our time of snowboarding since we were all dead tired/hungry, and we were not able to snowboard until 4pm. The lift tickets we bought were not able to be used for night boarding, which made us buy another set of tickets. Very frustrating. But once we were done, we went inside the house. It was a beautiful place. The only problem with this house was that there was only 1 shower working for 12 people. The downstairs shower wasn't working, so it was very frustrating for all of us to use. The upstairs doesn't have a shower, but rather a jacuzzig. The middle floor had a working shower, so 12 people ended up sharing that. But other than the shower not working and having to plow the parking area, we had a good experience. The place has all the other amenities you need, with a pool table/ping pong table, sauna, jacuzzi, all the pots/pans/plates/bowls/utensils you need, multiple tv's, heaters working very well. So, other than that, no complaints. The place was very clean and was able to accommodate for 12 people. I would consider staying here again if shower situation is cleared.
