The space

Are you trying to find a big place for your whole family? Don't you and everyone else just want their own bed at the end of the night to sleep in? How about just relaxing inside the cabin with a nice sofa, flat screen TVs in all the room and a game room with pool table, foosball table, and air hockey?

This is a beautiful 3 story cabin that has a mountain view from the main level good for a big family. It is close to the ski slope, Bear Mountain (5 min drive) while far enough where it's quite and located at a cue-de-sac. It is good for kids and the cabin is built on a slope where during winter, with enough snow, can sled down right next to the cabin.

--------- Cleanliness / Towel / Linen ---------
The cabin should be 100% cleaned. We don’t do it ourselves nor have we inspected the cabin before your arrival. We have gone through multiple cleaning crew and this is the best we’ve found but sometimes the cleaning crew might still miss some cleaning details. If there’s any issues with cleanliness, please contact Laura’s Cleaning: ((PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

Towels and linen are all included. We provide a minimum of 10 towels. We will try to leave out 12 towels if we have extra that’s ready to go.

--------- Parking ---------
Winter (when there’s snow): With snow, the snowplow pushes the snow onto the side of the street and makes it very hard to fit more than 3 cars on the parking space. 2 cars pulled into the space + 1 more perpendicular to the 2 cars.

Summer/Fall/Spring: You can fit 2 cars comfortably in the parking spaces and a few more cars along the street. Please do not block our neighbor’s driveway.

--------- Kitchen ---------
There is a full kitchen at the cabin. If you are in doubt if we have certain cooking tools, we ask that you bring your own just in case. With regards to oil/salt/pepper/condiments, we never know if any guest has contaminate them, so we don’t provide any and we ask that you bring your own.

--------- BBQ ---------
The BBQ is available for use and extra propane tank (in case you run out) is stored on the same deck inside the only cabinet. The BBQ requires you to use a light to light the grill (we have long lighters in the cabin, this is just FYI). There is NO charcoal BBQ.

--------- Chairs ---------
There are additional folding chairs directly next to the front door closet. You can use these chairs inside or outside.

--------- TV ---------
There is a TV in every room. Each TV uses internet TV and by default the internet should be working/on. There is NO regular cable TV. All TV channel should be HDMI 1 (default) and you can use the Amazon TV remote to watch your programs. Amazon Prime, Hulu and Netflix are all available.

--------- Internet ---------
The internet password and how to connect is located on a laminated paper next to the fridge/thermostat. We have pretty fast internet. If there’s any issues, try to unplug the power and plug it back in. The router is a very expensive router and we are hoping that the chance of it not working is low. However, it might happen sometimes and I’ll try my best to help you over the phone if needed, but if I cannot pick up, please leave me a voicemail.

--------- Beds/Room Configuration ---------
There are no pull outs. All beds are actual beds. We have moved some of the beds around compared to our pictures to hopefully provide more privacy for everyone. There is also now a bathroom downstairs.

Upstairs: there is 2 bedroom each with double beds (should be queen but not 100% sure.. sorry!). There is also a single bed in the loft. In the same loft, there is the foosball and air-hocky table. Please be careful of the ledge when children is playing upstairs. There is a bathroom with double sink.

Middle level: This is where you will enter with kitchen, living room and dinning room. The master bedroom is on this level. There is a bathroom, shared, with single sink, a shower and a jetted tub.

Lower level: This is where the pool table, fireplace, a shower, a single bed and a bunk bed.

--------- Kayak ---------
You can use the kayak if you like (single and double). You MUST use the PFDs. People have drowned in the Big Bear lake and also the police patrol will fine you for not wearing PFDs. Please return everything to where you found them and lock up the kayaks after you use them. You and your family and friends are using this at your own risk.

--------- Heating & A/C ---------
There is only 1 zone and 1 thermostat. The lower level tends to be cooler and the upper level tends to be hotter. Once the bedroom door is closed, it can get warm quick (the big spaces like living room tends to heat up the slowest). This means if someone is inside a bedroom with door closed and just started heating the cabin (or been heating for a while), the living room might be cool while the bedroom might be warm. We try to keep the vents in the bedroom halfway shut but we’ve notice people tend to just open them wide open in hope to warm the room up quickly only to have the room warmed way too much. This is FYI so you can make whatever adjustment you need to be comfortable.

NOTE2: 2 kayaks are included for free to bring to the lake; but you must ask and sign a release of liability wavier digitally online and be able to transport the kayak yourself
Note 3: There is NO A/C. During the summer time, with all the windows closed (no circulation) and there being no attic space, the top level can get pretty hot. We ask that you open the top windows and open the deck slider door. The airflow from the hill will help cool the cabin quite well and will be a nice breeze. If you still need more airflow, there’s a ceiling fan upstairs as well as a portable fan in the closet.

Guest access

Guest will have access to everything, including washer and dryer. The only out of reach area is the master closet which is where we keep all the cleaning supplies.

Interaction with guests

Our calendar IS up to date. I will be available over the phone. I have labeled the cabin with almost everything you need/can think of (including wifi, TVs, BBQ instructions). You can check in early and checkout late if there's no guest before/after.... just make a reservation and message me. Typically only peak December is where we are strict on checkin/out time.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy your time in our cabin.

Other things to note

Noise: This is a wood cabin built on a hillside. Over the years of soil expansion and contraction, with the age of the cabin, in certain section of the cabin, the floor makes squeeky noises when walked on. We tried to fix it as best as we can but still it makes squeeky noise on certain parts. If this is a concern to you, please factor this decision into booking this cabin.

Checkin and checkout is flexible. If there's no one renting the same day before/after, you can check in/out as early/late as you like.

The cabin was very roomy and accommodating for everyone. The view from the cabin was amazing and the location was great. We were close to the lake and a few hiking trails. The cabin itself had many amenities including large televisions in each room, laundry machine, pool table, air hockey table, foosball table and more. I would recommend others to stay here!

Richard was highly accommodating. Although he was a satellite host, he gave quick turn around time to all my inquiries. The cabin is within the mountain terrain where the roads are not so developed. The drive was a winding slope. But when you arrive, its definitely worth the drive. The aesthetics and placement of the cabin is beautiful and serene with a vintage vibe. The structure in mostly wood, so you will hear creaking from every step. The beds were placed in the 3 bedrooms, common space and the basement area. Overall, my family and I were happy campers during our stay and would love to return for future dates.

Overall, my family enjoyed our time at Richard's place. We had two 7-10 year olds, one infant, two grandparents and 4 adults. Kids enjoyed the air hockey and foosball (foosball was slightly tilted). The TV in living room was good with Amazon Prime and Netflix (I had to sign into our own netflix account). All of the bedrooms had TV's that were useless unless you were willing to sign into you Amazon prime account. Which I would guess most are not. The grill was a dirty and for us to use it would have required a thorough cleaning (we did not bother with it). The vacuum and the moveable fan was broken. The kitchen has most of the basics including a coffee machine. It did not have a blender and when we arrived, the trash can was missing (which was quickly resolved with a replacement that didn't fit into the cabinet). Initially the upstairs bedrooms were quite hot (as another user noted) which would have been resolved if we had a fan (but it was broken). However, by the middle of the night, things were pretty cold. The pool table in the basement was great but no chalk was provided so it was not really playable and we did not use it. Through the living room, we could see the ski slopes of Snow Summit which is pretty cool. It's a beautiful location and quiet. Overall, price was great but it lacked a few basics and the house was not cleaned when we first arrived. Richard was very responsive and quickly resolved most issues. Overall, value is good but the place is not perfected.

The layout is nice for large families. It's fairly close to the lake, village, and stores. It has a beautiful view and is very quiet and peaceful. If the place was updated, issues were fixed, and had a good deep cleaning I would give it another try.

We had such a great time in Richard's cabin! Plenty of room for our group of 10 and tons of space to move about and not be stuck together constantly! Gorgeous views from the back balcony and from the loft out the large windows. Richard was there for us and helped us solve the minor problem we we're having with his kayaks. Would most definitely reccomend and will be staying here again in the future!

Views! Views! And MORE VIEWS! If you're looking for scenic porch to take your breath away, this is the spot. Check in was easy peasy. It's an oldie, but goodie . Be prepared to bring your own trash bags, toilet paper and paper towels.
