Lovely little cabin
I am so excited to have found this rental! Big Bear is wonderful but it's very hard to find quality places that are appropriately priced and we have been burned on previous occassions with rentals that were not kept up. This cottage was a very welcome exception. The cottage is super cute, in an excellent location - walking to the lake, town center and Swim Beach - and just the right mix of rustic and comfort. Most important to me, the place was clean. The beds were very cozy and I was really happy to find a very usable kitchen. It's perfect for a couple, small family or small group. My family and our dogs loved it. The only things I could think of that could make this place even better (and this is not a complaint at all, just a suggestion for next possible upgrade) would be an enclosed back yard and a jacuzzi. Then this would be absolutely perfect! One thing, the place is not big so definintely don't try to bring more people than the house requests. It would not be comfortable. We had three adults and two dogs and that felt just right. The owner was very nice and helpful (we ha done question about the fireplace before we lit it and that was answered right away and we were good to go for the weekend) and there was a booklet with plenty of local information. We really liked the code locks because we never had to worry about losing a key. We had no problems at all with the place. We will definitely come back again very soon!
