We are a family of five, so accommodations can be tricky. We wanted a cabin with an on site pool and easy lake access. We looked at several options in Big Bear and decided on Frontier. The property grounds were great. Cabin exterior was clean and nice. Close to lake and alpine slides and village. We feel mislead. It looked like most of the pictures were of the "Frontier 2" which is the property directly on the lake.
The rustic decor was somewhere between 70's cowboy and thrift store. Cabin interior were a mix of bead board planks, vinyl flooring and plywood. The kitches was sparsely but adequately appointed. The stairs to the second level were steep, narrow, and creaky. The bedroom doors were made from a sheer of plywood painted with cheap hinges (every breath upstairs made the whole cabin creak). So not much rest with 3 kids.The place was advertised to sleep 6. But there was only one tiny bathroom and when you went to the toilet, it felt like the whole room was sagging and you were going to fall of into the middle of the room. People here already mentioned that there was no a/c. Even though we stayed in mid-August, the windows and fans were plenty. I know it was a cabin and should have a rustic feel but it felt rustic chintzy from the construction to the decor.
Pool was great, lake was close, grounds were clean, and staff was helpful. Like the title says we were hoping for more from the cabin itself.
