Stay at the sleepy forest cottages! If you stay at any other cabin in the area, you have to pay a $100-150 cleaning fee...My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay at the Camper's Cottage. I recommend this cabin because I believeee it is the only lower priced cabin that has a full kitchen. The room was very clean! Not...

This was a much needed get-away for my husband and I. Everything about the weekend was perfect. Especially the fireplace and the spa. A special thanks to Victor at the front desk, he went above and beyond to help us.

On a spontaneous decision, my husband and I decided to drive up to Big Bear for the weekend. We had previously stayed in the cottages twice before so we thought they were a safe bet. Unfortunately, this time we got #190 which is practically falling apart. The furniture is really old and worn. It was a cold weekend and it...

My husband and I went up there for a getaway weekend and had a great stay. The room was clean and the fireplace was wonderful. The staff were very nice, we checked in kind of late and she stayed for us. They were very friendly.

We stayed here for 2 nights for our 17th wedding anniversary. The proprietor told us that he purchase the cabins and started the business because he wanted a place for couples to come to once a year to relive their honeymoon. You can see they truly care about their guests. The cabins are rustic but very clean. Beautiful fireplace and...

Stayed here last March and it was unbelievable. Our cabin was pretty big and it looked remodeled. Only weird thing was that when we opened the door it smelled like gas. Other than that it was perfect. Our kitchen had a bar and a large flat screen tv that could be moved around to face the bed or the kitchen....

My fiance and I were looking for a nice, romantic getaway and Sleepy Forest Cottages was perfect! We greatly enjoyed the large jet tube and the cozy fire. The cottages are within walking distance of restaurants and there is ample parking. We will definitely be back soon.

We loved everything about our stay. The people are very friendly and helpful. We were unable to make the tv work and the office came immediately and showed us how to manage it ourselves. Very clean and well appointed. We will definitely stay again. Rod and Carolyn J.
