My SO and I spent Memorial Day Weekend in the Crystal Cave and had an EXCELLENT time. The property owners were very nice and extremely accommodating of our late arrival. There was a great selection of personal products (even a razor!) in the event that you forget to pack anything. We loved the fireplace and used it both nights as... More

My husband and I found this on the web...we were intrigued. When we showed up, we were fascinated. The cabins are set 1 block away from the main street, but you would never know it. When you enter, you see a beautifully landscaped area with lots of trees, paths that meander here and there, and cabins that are set so... More

My husband and I spent three nights at Castle Wood Cottages and absolutely loved it. We were very impressed by the staff in particular. The owner checked us in herself and I have not doubt had we had any problems it would have been taken care of immediately without hesitation. We spent one night in the Enchanted Forest and two...

This was the best hotel experience my husband and I have EVER had! It was so much fun, relaxing and peaceful!!! THe grounds are beautiful and full of nature! The cottage that we stayed in was even better in person! This is a magical place! We can not wait to return!

Oh My God! This place, enchanted forest truly lives up to the meaning. Your wife/ girl friend would positively adore it. One thing which sets this place apart from the crowd is its attention to details. The decor is amazing complete with waterfalls, forest sounds, trees everywhere, a gnome house , charming murals on the wall. The icing on the... More

Had the enchanted forest cottage for 1 night, the expression on the wifes face as she walked in was worth the cost alone. Waterfall, birds singing, gnomes house, the fairy lights in the trees, jacuzzi, murals on the walls, all tastefully done and very well presented. One of those places you just have to stay whether your visiting big bear... More

First, I'd like to say thank you to all who recommended this charming place! Check out the website [----]. We stayed in the Captains Quarters the first night. ....The attention to detail was very impressive. You really felt like you were in a "captains quarters" along with captain hat & coat for him & a blouse & full skirt for... More

My husband and I were able to schedule a tiny vacation up to Big Bear over the 4th of July weekend and I thought Castlewood was a great place to stay! The cabin (Castle Garden) was out of this world. We hardly left our room. The decor was well thought out and the jacuzzi tub...very relaxing. The only complaint I... More

My husband and I have stayed at Castlewood three times in the past few years. The Crystal Cave was a favorite. The rooms are adorable, the designer goes all out and creates "another world" for you. Excellent front desk service. The fireplace and jacuzzi alone are worth the rates... you can't get those amenities without paying more at other places.... More
