Cathy's Cottages has to be the best deal in the Big Bear area. I stayed in the Aviators Room #8. This room has a very comfortable pillow top queen bed, a sofa and coffee table, a dining table along with a microwave, fridge, and a coffee maker and coffee. There are dishes in the cabinet, complete with salt and pepper... More

5 STARS for quality AND value. Probably one of the nicest places in Big Bear. And a great price too. Attached cottages about 3 miles east of the village. Rock fireplace. Immaculately kept, warm and inviting. The only thing the owners might consider are HDTVs and alarm clocks in the units.

We booked with cathys cottages and when we arrived decided to be closer to the village so upgraded to the sleepy forest resort, we were allocated cottage number 15. I was delighted as it was like a scene from dirty dancing the cabins in the woods. The room was very very clean with plenty of room to hang our bike... More

Stayed here for a much needed break. I didnt realize that the cabin we rented was not near the village, it was actually in Big Bear City. I wish it was a bit quiter, we were right across a Circle K which meant we could hear cars driving off and on the parking area. On a positive note, the cabin... More

Hello, Thanks for the review! We are sorry to hear that you had a couple issues with your stay. Cathy's Cottages is located further from the Village and closer to the road, which is why the rates are lower - but we always offer free upgrades if you have an issue, and ask that you let us know right away!...

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was bigger than i thought it was going to be and very clean! My husband enjoyed reading the aviation books in the room. I looked for some plastic cups to drink our wine from and found real wine glasses and an opener! Nice toiletries too. Even Advil. It is on the outskirts of... More

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst doing a bit of skiing. Checked in at Sleepy Forest Office which was 5 mins down road. Check-in was quick and staff at office very helpful and friendly. There are approx. 8 cottages situated at a quiet area on the edge of town. The cottages themselves are of a nice size, ours consisted of... More

Hello, thanks for the nice review! I want to point out up front that Cathy's Cottages is only one of our locations. Our main lodge, Sleepy Forest Cottages, is a quarter mile from the Village and Snow Summit, walking distance to restaurants, and a half a block from the lake. I would recommend you try Sleepy Forest Cottages next time.... More
