#8 has a attic room above it, I could hardly sleep, any walking and there is lots or water running sounds like its going to come thru the roof inside the room, the owners do not tell you that the attic room is overhead and will interrupt your sleep, other than that the room is very clean and comfortable, also having #7 joined to # 8 led to lots of noise from doors slamming as well. Maybe we just got unlucky and had neighbors who didn't care about anyone but themselves.

Thanks for the review. We are very sorry that you could not sleep and dealt with noise above and around you. That is the opposite of the experience we wanted you to have. 228 (#8 at Cathy's Cottages) is one of our few (3) "motel style" deluxe fireplace rooms at Cathy's Cottages. It is connected to 227 and below 221 (Grandma's Attic - our smallest cutest room). It sounds like it was a busy weekend or holiday and the guests surrounding you were noisy. We apologize for that - and want to say that this is the reason we URGE every guest to contact us right away with any questions, concerns or issues. We are on call 24/7, and also ask guests to let us know what they think of the room if the feel up to it right after checking in. We will upgrade you for FREE to any available room if you are not happy - and in this situation we really wish we knew right away and could have asked the other guests to be quieter. 228, along with our othe "motel style" rooms are our cheapest rooms, and the price goes down even more due to the proximity to each other and to the highway. Please stay with us and ask for an upgrade at check in. You will either get an amazing discounted upgrade deal, or free depending on our availability and circumstances to the upgrade. Thanks, Josh Pool, Manager

My husband and I stayed here for one night in June and we really liked it. I was worried it would be a cheesy place because the rate was so good, but it wasn't. We stayed in Cabin 6 (226 on the website) and couldn't have been happier. The room was clean, came equipeed with an awesome jacuzzi tub, double-headed shower for two, ceiling fan, gas fireplace, small fridge, microwave, plates, cups and silverware, you name it. There was an table, chairs, and ashtray right outside the door for those who smoke. To the left of our room was a tented bbq area, which was nice.

As far as location, you won't see gorgeous mountain views here, as it's right on Big Bear Blvd. The upside is there's a CircleK across the street. We didn't plan on leaving the room, so we didn't care about any view. We'll definitely come back to Cathy's Cottages.

My husband and I decided to stay here for two nights for a much needed weekend getaway. The cottage was clean, comfortable and very romantic. Great hot tub, fireplace, and the location was perfect for us as we wanted something away from the busy village area. However, the Village is just a short drive away. Our only complaint is the bed. The linens are great, but the mattress really needs to be replaced -- lumpy. However, all of the other amenities and the charm of the cottage will definately have us coming back.

Thank You for this review. We are always replacing and updating our beds, sofas, etc. Our most important concern is that you contact us while you are here, and let us know exactly how you feel about your room and stay. We will upgrade anyone to any available room at anytime if you do not love your cottage/cabin/room! And we are on call 24/7 to deal with any sudden issues. Thanks! Josh Pool, Management.

We took a weekend trip last November and were quite happy with the choice. Adorable little rooms and the brisk, cold nights made the gas fireplace that much better. I only gave it a 4 because I just wish it was a bit closer to the Big Bear Village, but it really wasn't that far.
The staff was very friendly and was genuinely concerned with our opinion of the room.

We had an amazing time staying at this small cabin in Big Bear!! The cabin was very spacious and the bed felt amazing. The hot tub was more than large enough for two and faced the television and beautiful fire. We even had our own little porch to sit outside and enjoy the fresh mountain air!!! The only downside was that it's located closer to Big Bear City than the attractions in Big Bear Lake. I'd say for the price, its well worth the short 5 min drive to the village. There's a Circle K across the street if you need last minute snacks or want to rent a movie at the machine out front for the DVD player in the room also!! Had a great time and would highly recommend it!!!!

I was at Cathy's with my GF over the 4th of July weekend. We absolutely loved it. The cabin was beautiful and very well maintained. The owners Josh and Bob were very friendly and gave useful tips and suggestions to enjoy our stay. I would highly recommend it to my family.

What's not to love at Cathy's Cottages for a romantic getaway !
I actually can't think of anything it didn't have. A rustic individual cabin with a big cozy bed with lots of feather pillows. A rock fireplace with a rock jacuzzi tub for two in front of it. A double shower. A coffee maker and microwave and a cute little porch. All tucked away from the bustle of the tourist area in a quiet residential area surrounded by antique and specialty stores. I love Moonridge !
The owner and desk people could not have been nicer or more helpful and you'd expect to pay twice as much . I highly recommend this experience and we'll be back again next month for our anniversary. Thank you !!! We loved the place !
