“Great place to stay near Meadow Park and Ski Resorts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2005

My family and I stayed here from August 15th-18th. We stayed in a two bedroom cabin with a complete kitchen (dishwasher) and bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and large shower. These cabin rentals are in the heart of the town and easy walking distance to the swim beach and Meadow Park. Our two year old daughter had no problem walking to the swim area and the park. The living room was was comfortable and the dining room was large enough to seat eight adults. The cabin had a front porch and lawn area for the children to play. The back deck had a barbecue. They have several units fitting different needs from honeymooners to a family reunion. Also, the cabin is within walking distance to the local McD's, which has a play area for young children. The office sells prestilogs and goodies for a movie night. They have a continental breakfast every morning which is included in the rates, as well as daily maid service. You need to check out their personal video collection which is also a freebie while staying here. In the winter they are a few minutes drive from the ski areas, winter tubing,and the alpine slides. In the summer you have the lake, and nearby alpine bike trails to explore. The owners were very personalable and willing to accomadate and meet our needs if possible. You get a great rate if you book on the internet, and pay even less if you go during the week. I personally think this place is one of the best kept secrets in Big Bear.

Sleepy Forest was wonderful - we rented one of the cabins (No. 6) for 3 days and can honestly say that we did not want to leave!!! The ambience of the cabin was extremely romantic- the jacuzzi tub and fireplace were a very nice touch. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. If you are looking for peace, quiet and a lot of romance, then consider this location. Bill & Stacey
