One night at the cottage was amazing. The jet was great. It is quiet and convenient to everything. Moreover, they have basic cooking ware in the cottage! Makes things so much easier. Want to come back again!

We planned for this vacay for weeks... by the time we decided on the actual dates it was almost a 4-day weekend so lodging was sky-rocketing in all the resorts we wanted to stay. Then, the weather forecast says something about storm coming to SoCal??? Perhaps it was all these that prompted our decision. Needless to say, we booked Cottage...

Clean, comfortable, cozy. Isn't that what we're all looking for? Loved this cabin. It is HUGE. Great for an over night or extended stay. Fully stocked kitchen, just bring the food! Even has a BBQ on the deck off the kitchen. Beautiful wood burning fireplace too. We'll be back for sure.

Booked this cute and cozy place as an early birthday gift to myself! Learned how to snowboard with my girlfriend and stayed for 2 nights from 1/18-1/20. Finding the place and checking in was so simple. As I do with all places I plan to stay in, I had done a bunch of research and read reviews about this place...

This place was wonderful! My boyfriend and I wanted a romantic getaway and that's exactly what we got! Our room, the Eureka!, was recently renovated and was perfect! I give 5 stars for the friendly and accommodating staff, the king size jacuzzi tub, coffee and pastries in the lobby, fireplace, wood and tile floors and the great Rain shower! I...

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...

These guys were really helpful. Gave us a bottle of champagne for new year to celebrate. It was very close to various places. Cottage was really nice and clean. It had fire place too which was very helpful. You can also rent movies.

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...
