My husband and I have stayed numerous times – it was cozy, romantic and was the go-to when we needed a romantic getaway. The last few stays it was increasingly difficult to get a hold of anyone in the office if we had a question. We didn’t anticipate any problems so that was not an issued. During our last visit...

We had such a great time. Cabin 14 was cute and very clean. Perfect for my boyfriend, 7 year old and 2 dogs. We had fresh snow for skiing and sledding and wood burning fireplace. We would def come back.

My husband I went the weekend of Jan 27 -29. We stayed at the Lakeview four two vacation home and we LOVED the experience.

So glad we booked this place for a quick overnight. Our family enjoyed rustic cabin 17. The place was clean, well stocked, beds were comfortable and wifi was fast. My favorites were the fireplace, jacuzzi tub and comfy bed. Our boys enjoyed playing in snow steps from our cabin, the llamas and the playground. If we return again we will...

We love going to Little Bear, because it feels like a home in Big Bear. The location is great, the size of the cabin is just right for us, and the hot tub is a bonus. And lastly, they're pet friendly. Our dog loves that place. The kitchen is fully stocked with what you need to cook or bbq, and...

We decided to go to Big Bear on the last minute, and got very lucky that there was one vacation home left unoccupied this past weekend. We got lucky despite Tour de Big Bear. Our favorite cabin was not available but we were excited to try a new cabin in their portfolio of vacation homes. When they say that this...

This place isn't fancy but it felt just right for us. Everything we could possibly need with a small kitchen, jacuzzi tub, air conditioning, and pet friendly. We were able to walk (~ 10 min) to the village and if you are able, you can also walk to the lake for the Miss Liberty boat tour, as its on the...
