We were lucky to find a cabin available for a last-minute trip to Big Bear. The grounds at Sleepy Forest were beautiful, and perfectly kept. The location is perfect, just a block away from the Lake and park. The cabin we stayed in, #17, was VERY small, but clean and had everything we needed. The only thing i didn't like... More

Wife and I stayed here for Her B-Day and all I can say... "Over the Top Hospitality... A++++"... The Cabin was the No. 4 Fisherman Cottage which is Handicap Accessible for my wife... Power scooter fit real nice inside the double swing front doors... Jacuzzi Tub for (2) was so rehabilitating for the sore muscles that I fell asleep in... More

We have stayed here several times in one of the cabins nestled in the woods. Some have real fireplaces and some gas. Some have a jacuzzi tub in the room.... NICE!! We love how quiet and peaceful it is. The cabins are immaculately clean, cozy and the beds so comfortable!! The staff (especially Josh) is WONDERFUL!! You can get firewood,... More

We and another couple rented cottages to check out Big Bear. What a pleasant experience. The cottages were very clean, located in a nice area, and well attended by the owners. We highly recommend Sleepy Forest and will return. I highly recommend that you select Sleepy Forest for a wonderful experience.

We booked the Honeymoon suite for a couple of nights and it was absolutely amazing! It's very cozy and the wood burning fireplace sets the mood. Outside there is a large grassy area that's pretty much your own and it comes with a charcoal barbecue. 7-11 and MacDonald's are a quick 2minute walk away. The staff here are extremely helpful...

Sweet little cottage decorated farm style. We had a wonderful day skiing at Snow summit just minutes from the cottage. Everything was perfect and I would love to go back one day. The best thing was to open log fire which made it really cozy. And a spa bath after skiing was very welcome to ease tired muscles.

First of all I was extremely concerned when we arrived at our cabin mainly because I've seen the pictures on the website and read the reviews but when something seems too good to be true it probably is. In this case it was true! We arrived late on 1/22...Martin Luther King day. We were driving down from Vegas but didn't... More

We stayed at Cathy's Cottages as a weekend getaway from my wife's grad school, and we really had the perfect weekend. Our cottage was homely, spacious, and had full amenities. It really felt more like a second home than any hotel, and the owner's friendliness was more like a host than just a hotel staffer. Even outside of the main... More

Clean, cute and quick service checking in. The room was just what we needed and we enjoyed the fireplace. If I could change anything it would be to have a softer bed as the bed was a bit hard for my arthritic body. The other was the light from the porch and parking lot lights that would be best blocked... More

Hello and thanks for the nice review! We are sorry to hear that the bed was not comfortable for you. We are always replacing, changing and updating beds for this reason. They are often too soft or too hard for different guests. We hope you can come stay again and try a different cottage and bed, give us a call!... More
