I took my boyfiend here for our one year / his birthday in October and was totally shocked. I picked Cathy's Cottages because it had a fireplace and jacuzzi for an exceptional price. But this place blew me away. The room was amazing. It was so cute and cozy and had just about anything that you could hope for in...

For the same price we would have spent for the one star chain motel room down the street we got Cottage #7. The website photos represent the actual room perfectly. First you go through a little sitting area (great for leaving snowy shoes and bags), then into a nice bedroom with a gas fireplace at the bottom of the bed,...

Thanks for this review! Your description of #7 at Cathy's Cottages is very accurate :) It is one of the only 2 more motel style rooms at Cathy's Cottages. The rest are all jacuzzi honeymoon suites. We are always concerned about this room as it is closest to the highway and circle K across the street. We have recently checked...

These cottages are wonderful! Cozy, jacuzzi for two in front of fireplace, love seat in front of fireplace, well maintained (very minor cosmetic flaws here and there). The price / value is excellent, the staff is great. It is not centrally located to anything but just about everything in Big Bear is just a few minutes drive. Definitely would stay...

Thank you for this wonderful review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Cathy's Cottages is about 3 miles from the main Big Bear Area where the lake, village and ski resorts are located. Although the jacuzzi cottages at Cathy's are some of the most romantic the rates run lower than Sleepy forest Cottages' due to the location. If you...

#8 has a attic room above it, I could hardly sleep, any walking and there is lots or water running sounds like its going to come thru the roof inside the room, the owners do not tell you that the attic room is overhead and will interrupt your sleep, other than that the room is very clean and comfortable, also...

Thanks for the review. We are very sorry that you could not sleep and dealt with noise above and around you. That is the opposite of the experience we wanted you to have. 228 (#8 at Cathy's Cottages) is one of our few (3) "motel style" deluxe fireplace rooms at Cathy's Cottages. It is connected to 227 and below 221...

My husband and I stayed here for one night in June and we really liked it. I was worried it would be a cheesy place because the rate was so good, but it wasn't. We stayed in Cabin 6 (226 on the website) and couldn't have been happier. The room was clean, came equipeed with an awesome jacuzzi tub, double-headed...

My husband and I decided to stay here for two nights for a much needed weekend getaway. The cottage was clean, comfortable and very romantic. Great hot tub, fireplace, and the location was perfect for us as we wanted something away from the busy village area. However, the Village is just a short drive away. Our only complaint is the...

Thank You for this review. We are always replacing and updating our beds, sofas, etc. Our most important concern is that you contact us while you are here, and let us know exactly how you feel about your room and stay. We will upgrade anyone to any available room at anytime if you do not love your cottage/cabin/room! And we...

We took a weekend trip last November and were quite happy with the choice. Adorable little rooms and the brisk, cold nights made the gas fireplace that much better. I only gave it a 4 because I just wish it was a bit closer to the Big Bear Village, but it really wasn't that far. The staff was very friendly...

We had an amazing time staying at this small cabin in Big Bear!! The cabin was very spacious and the bed felt amazing. The hot tub was more than large enough for two and faced the television and beautiful fire. We even had our own little porch to sit outside and enjoy the fresh mountain air!!! The only downside was...

I was at Cathy's with my GF over the 4th of July weekend. We absolutely loved it. The cabin was beautiful and very well maintained. The owners Josh and Bob were very friendly and gave useful tips and suggestions to enjoy our stay. I would highly recommend it to my family.

What's not to love at Cathy's Cottages for a romantic getaway ! I actually can't think of anything it didn't have. A rustic individual cabin with a big cozy bed with lots of feather pillows. A rock fireplace with a rock jacuzzi tub for two in front of it. A double shower. A coffee maker and microwave and a cute...
