We were in the smallest of the cabins, and it was cozy and well furnished. Complete with stove, fridge, microwave oven the kitchen had everything you could want in terms of dishes,cookware etc. The location is right at the edge of Boulder Jct making it easy to just walk into town. Would rent this place again!

Immaculate one of a kind cabin rentals. Family built and owned. Beautiful and private setting, walking distance to Boulder Junction. Couldn't ask for more! Each cabin uniquely designed and artistically crafted. The experience is magical. Baby deer born during our stay every spring. Often see eagles and all kinds of birds. Hospitality abounds and every need is met by the... More

How is it possible to keep this place so clean and so beautiful? Everything is high quality and the details are not ignored. Mary was extremely nice and welcoming and I had little to worry about. Great location, walking distance to some bars, dining, etc. I would love to go back here! It would be nice if they took a... More

Joe & Mary Hovel, owners & builders of Big Bear Hideaway, have truly created one of the most unique lodging experiences in the Northwoods. We stayed in the Grizzly cabin and could not believe the attention to detail and the overall coziness of the place. Everything was ultra-clean as well. We also loved that we were able to bring our...

We just back from our second trip to Big Bear Hideaway. We love it! There's plenty to keep the kids busy and yet the adults can relax. The owners are awesome! They have created a fun but calming environment for all ages. We love watching the deer and being so close to downtown. Can't wait to go again.

Big Bear Hideaway is so extraordinary that I'm writing this while still enjoying the Polar Bear Palace! This amazing lodging is a true (wood) work of art. Everywhere you turn is something magnificent in wood, a whimsical face peeking out of a tree branch, a carved black bear shooting a layup...it is really quite impossible to describe this incredible experience...you'll...

Great Great place to stay...from the architecture, to the grounds and especially the hospitality and service provided are second to none. Easy access to snowmobile trails and good places to eat and drink in town.

This is our third stay over the past 18 months at the Big Bear Hideaway. Let's just say, we are addicted to the place! Every stay here has been a real pleasure. Owners, Joe & Mary, are wonderful and so accomodating. They bend over backwards to make each guest feel at home. Each cottage has been lovingly and meticulously hand-crafted... More

My wife & I have stayed here at least 7 times in 3 years in several different cabins and each time we have been overwhelmed by the beauty of the cabins and the grounds. Each visit we find peace & serenity. The pavilion is a wonderful touch to compliment the buildings. We highly recommend this nice getaway. The owners are... More
