We were able to book Cottage #2. Check in and out was very easy. The Cottage itself was clean and romantic. I loved having the larger area to change and get ready separate from the the bathroom. The bed was super comfy and the room stayed cool even though there was no air and it was in the mid 80's... More

We were allocated the cottage nearest the road, so there was some traffic noise overnight. We had all we needed for a comfortable sleep, with plenty of hot water. Unexpected complimentary toiletries - a nice touch. To dine out you'll need a car - but restaurant choices abound in the "Village". Really friendly reception at the office - thanks.

Thank you Diane! It sounds like you booked cottage C7 or C8 - our most inexpensive queen rooms - as they are closest to the highway. We hope you will return and try a Jacuzzi cottage or something further from the street! Josh P. -SFR More

Halit, We are sorry to hear that these issues ruined your vacation. We spoke with you many times about the barbecue. When we get over 3 feet of snow we cannot guarantee anyone a barbecue - we did not intend for you to have to dig it out and have such a hard time and are sorry we could not... More

Cathy's Cottages has to be the best deal in the Big Bear area. I stayed in the Aviators Room #8. This room has a very comfortable pillow top queen bed, a sofa and coffee table, a dining table along with a microwave, fridge, and a coffee maker and coffee. There are dishes in the cabinet, complete with salt and pepper... More

5 STARS for quality AND value. Probably one of the nicest places in Big Bear. And a great price too. Attached cottages about 3 miles east of the village. Rock fireplace. Immaculately kept, warm and inviting. The only thing the owners might consider are HDTVs and alarm clocks in the units.

Hello, thanks so much for the nice review! We are glad you enjoyed the stay. We have HD TV's in most rooms, and recently removed alarm clocks as most guests use personal devices now. We are considering some docks for phones though, thanks for the recommendations! We hope to see you again soon :) -SFR More

We booked with cathys cottages and when we arrived decided to be closer to the village so upgraded to the sleepy forest resort, we were allocated cottage number 15.

Stayed here for a much needed break. I didnt realize that the cabin we rented was not near the village, it was actually in Big Bear City. I wish it was a bit quiter, we were right across a Circle K which meant we could hear cars driving off and on the parking area. On a positive note, the cabin... More

Hello, Thanks for the review! We are sorry to hear that you had a couple issues with your stay. Cathy's Cottages is located further from the Village and closer to the road, which is why the rates are lower - but we always offer free upgrades if you have an issue, and ask that you let us know right away!...
