I was sceptical, at first, having found some reviews and news articles about the federal indictments and Ponzi schemes connected to this property. Rest assured! The folks involved in that mess are no longer around and the original owners have their beautiful resort back in their very capable hands.
When we arrived, we were greeted by Joe and Mary, the owners, who made us feel like we had been old friends! We chatted, got a tour of the Welcome Office and our cabin, and settled in. What a spectacular resort, handcrafted and lovingly cared for by the owners themselves.
We stayed in the Grizzly for Father's Day weekend and could not have made a better choice! The cabins are fully furnished and equipped with all the comforts of home, including WIFI, cable TV, full kitchen, outdoor seating and grill. You have to check this one out! You will be glad you did!
Nice touches include bath salts and a tub pillow in the cabins with antique bathtubs (which also have showers); area guides and brochures; artfully placed stained glass windows; log handcrafted furnishings; lots of towels and fluffy blankets...the list goes on.
We will return and spread the word - Big Bear Hideaway is rated #1 in our book.
