We loved everything about our stay. The people are very friendly and helpful. We were unable to make the tv work and the office came immediately and showed us how to manage it ourselves. Very clean and well appointed. We will definitely stay again. Rod and Carolyn J.

5 stars is just not enough for how much we love staying at Sleepy Forest. My husband and I have been coming here almost yearly now since 2008. Everything about the cottages are wonderful, from the staff, the pricing, and the attention to detail in each and every cabin. We already have our favorites ...... this time we stayed in... More

Cozy cabins spread around the tall pines with some grass sprinkled in. Great location centrally located. Excellent privacy. AND a very reasonable rate for weekday stay for 2 days in August. Extremely clean and comfortable. A local calico cat visited on the porch to make us feel even more welcomed.

was looking to get away for the weekend before I went out of state on a job so I took my wife out on a weekend date to Big Bear. We had a wonderful time checked in at the front desk, asked for some dinner suggestions and the front desk clerk was very knowledgeable about the area.

Charming cottage in a pretty setting. Our cabin had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Office was very helpful and provided individual service cheerfully, such as helping us figure out how to use our DVD two nights in a row. They were helpful with other things as well. I found this place to be a good value, unique, charming... More

These cottages are an excellent way of escaping the routine of retirement, work or just getting away to the mountains. They are lovingly restored, various sizes to accommodate couples to small families in all seasons. They provide a feeling of home thanks to the owners who are there to help with any reasonable request to make your stay more comfortable.... More

This was a great stay. Nicest people, clean, clean, clean cabin, great location! We loved it- adorable, romantic, quiet, quaint, well appointed, modern conveniences but rustic feel. Front office is so helpful- recommendations, coffee bar, movies to borrow. Best stay ever! We are already planning our next trip! Only thing we are doing differently, getting a room with a jacuzzi...

Lovely setting with individual cabins in the woods, but near restaurants. It's hard to believe Sleepy Forest is just down the street from a busy main thoroughfare. I enjoyed my stay and definitely recommend staying here. My only issue was narrow parking spots, but I was told that larger ones are available, but not immediately next to my cabin.

The cottages here at Sleep Forest are vwry cozy, quaint, & clean. The coffee maker & iron in each room make it nice if you need a quick cup of coffee or need something pressed. The showers are always great, but the jetted jacuzzi tubs are fabulous. In the past the beds have been firm, but Cottage 16 had a... More
