The cabin is excellent. Very clean. Spacious living room! Full kitchen so the 10-member family can cook and dine together. All members are very happy with the one night stay.
The only hiccup is: the washer-dryer are not working and the dishwasher's detergent case is borken. No internet or wifi but it's okay for family gathering for a short stay.
I would definitely come back again.

Great Space, Could Use a Few Touches
Left on 08/25/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | BigBearConvert
For what our group needed, this place was about perfect. We had 12 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone to cook, eat, relax and hang out. Everyone could go off into their own private space or come together comfortably in the living room or dining area. The bedrooms were adequately furnished. There is plenty of sunlight and the openness of the space feels very refreshing.
There were some minor maintenance issues that should be addressed. When we arrived, we found one of the couches had a broken leg, though it was still fine to sit in. Most of the sliding screen doors stuck and did not want to easily close all the way. And the weirdest one was finding what appeared to be dried spitballs on the walls.
Despite these issues, we all felt very comfortable and had a great time. If you're not too picky about little maintenance issues like those named, you will enjoy yourself here.
This was my first rental like this in Big Bear, so I have nowhere to compare it to, but I would likely rent this place again. Read more
Thank you for taking the time to leave us this awesome feedback. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We have submitted requests to the maintenance department to have the couch leg looked at, the sliding glass doors as well as the "spit ball" which housekeeping will address.
We do hope you and your loved ones will be back to visit very soon!

We had a wonder time and the house was great. It had everything that we needed, it was just like being at home. We didn't want to leave. This was my second time staying here. They have done some upgrades since last year. I was pleases and look forward to staying there again next year.
could have been better

no wifi on this property no tvs in bedrooms, really over priced for not having normal features and ameneties. House was not cleaned properly prior to arrival and on day of check out cleaning was knocking and waiting for us to leave at 11 a.m no grace period or time to clean properly.
Mildly Let Down
High expectations met with lower to mediocre realities

The cabin was very large and nice. It was close to the lake and the shooting range, which was also nice. However, the speakers in the television were blown, the receiver for the surround sound was missing, so no surround sound or anywhere to plug in our ipods for music. The pool table had torn cloth, as well as the couches. Finally, there was little to no hot water for showers. We still had a lot of fun, but it was nowhere near as nice as the ads promised. Read more
Thank you for writing this review we are sincerely apologetic in regards to the issues you had while staying at Bear Loop Castle. We have work orders set in place to have these issues fixed. Bear Loop Castle is a beautiful and lavish home and with these things brought to our attention it will just makes the home that much better.

Thank you & have a wonderful day!

It was 10 of us and we all loved it. Only thing we were missing was the view. It was super clean cabin. We needed towels and it git delivered very fast, we asked the guy to clean the BBQ since it was not clean and he took care of it. over all great place if you don't care for lake view and great people to deal with.

We had twelve family members ranging in ages 6 to 75and we all found something fun to keep us busy. Overall the cabin was awesome. Very spacious and accommodating to all. The place was easy to get to and the neighborhood was peaceful and quite. Except for us at times. The pool table was the best call as we played games constantly.If I have to complain, I will keep it to a minimum.If your thinking the cabin is right next to the water, your incorrect. There are 2 rows of cabins in front of this one and no view of the lake. So if your wanting water front,this is not it.
The cabin is very close to everything that you may need in town. The grocery stores, trash dump, Golf, the beaches, fishing spots, jogging and walking trails.The big screen in the front room was awesome, we watched Olympics all week long from morning till bed time. There is surround sound in the cabin, but we could not get it to work.
The spa was a hit with most of us, but there needs to be a hose connected to the house so water can be added to the spa. As well, the air conditioner did not work as we tried several attempts. We adjusted and opened the windows through the day and got great mountain breezes, not bad with the fresh air coming in.At night it could be a little stuffy in a few of the rooms, so if you have a small fan, I'd bring it for some air circulation. Other then that, the place was a hit.I found the couches in the front room to be very large and comfortable, a few others thought they where a bit run down and should be replaced. We kept a sheet over the cushions and it worked out well. To each there own.The kitchen was incredible as my wife continued to rock the house with her meals she made. We feed everyone in the kitchen and dining area 3 times a day. Loved it. If we have the chance to come up again, we would not have a problem renting from here again.
very nice and modern!

stayed here for two days with a group. the whole cabin was very clean and nice, furniture was much newer than the other cabin i had previously stayed. vacation was perfect except that we couldn't order the ufc fight on the tv because of a billing issue. but that was ok, didn't bother me that much.
A Great weekend getaway

Great Vacation Rental
Left on 04/18/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | Under21
This house was simply amazing! It had all the amenities my family could have asked for and it was a short drive to the slopes and the village. The cabin is huge! It says that it can sleep 12, but when you take all of the couches into consideration you can easily fit 20 people comfortably.
The only problems I encountered occurred when I tried phoning in, waiting for them to send me an email confirmation. I was told that after I sent in a photo id and copy of my credit card I could head straight to the house opposed to stopping at their offices. I did so, and even received a confirmation email saying that everything looked fine. When I called in the morning of our check in I was upset to hear that they "never received an email.". Thankfully I resent it on my smart phone, but then they had a problem with my age because I was booking a family vacation under my name (I'm 20 years old). I just feel as if they should have been more aware. They had my photo id days before the trip and could have mentioned something beforehand, rather than wasting our time and having everything switched over to someone 21+.
Other than that one encounter, everything was perfect! It's an amazing house to stay in!
Beautiful home, great vacation getaway.

This house was great. We came here for a Birthday getaway for my husband and his family. This house was everything we had wanted. What differentiates this house is that each bedroom has at least a queen size bed, so its well situated for adults or kids. Most other rentals had twin size beds or bunk beds which didn't suit us. It has 5 large bedrooms, and 4 /2 bathrooms. The kitchen is beautiful and well set up. There is a lot of open space to hang out and relax. My only complaint was that the upstairs bathroom shower had a leak that dripped into the downstairs bedroom, so we had to stop using it after the first night. We contacted the rental company, so hopefully they get it fixed. But it was a breeze to check-in and out, and it was a perfect location for us. I would definitely stay here again.
needs better houskeepers
Left on 01/19/2012 for a stay in January 2012 | cindy
The home is nice and has plenty of room. But, I have stayed in low-end hotels that were cleaner. For the price they charge, CoolCabins, the homeowner and the housekeepers should have more pride.
We went to Coolcabins office the day after checkin, told them dining room floor had spills,master spa-tub had mildew particles come out of jets (100+), other floors needed to be swept& front yard had 3 broken lamps scattered across the yard. Maids came & mopped dining room spills, only! They took care of nothing else we reported. Our socks were black from floors,when wiping kitchen spills off floor, paper towel was black. This was when there were only two of us, so we hadn't had a chance to "track in" dirt!! There is dirt in every corner of staircase, crumbs, paper etc on floors throughout. Gas barbeque is torn apart, surround sound does not work, needs more chairs (even folding would be helpful).Windows have food, handprints etc - have not been cleaned in a long time. Every room has broken blinds, some only cover 1/2 of window.Couches were covered in food crumbs, thankfully, I took sheets to cover them.
Of course, they have your money so you aren't going to leave. Be prepared to pay highly for less than superior quality. I would be ashamed if this were my place. Read more
On behalf of Big Bear Cool Cabins I would like to apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. Your feedback helps us to address any issues and rectify them accordingly.

Family's First Time Staying in a Cabin.
Left on 01/13/2012 for a stay in January 2012 | Danny
We loved this cabin.It was a beautiful castle.We had a great time.The only little problem we had was the jacuzzi on the balcony. They never send a repair person to come and fix it we also we problems with the surround system it wouldn't work at all.We loved this cabin we would like to rent it later in the future.The location was really nice and very quite.The rooms were really nice and big.The things we liked about this cabin is everything.The least thing we didn't like was that we couldn't enjoy to get inside the jacuzzi.But other then that we loved it.

We will always use Cool Cabins to rent from now on! We have used other companies in the past, and the fees and service terrible. Upon arrival the outdoor jacuzzi was unusable, but within an hour the cool cabin people had someone out fixing it and got it up and running. I also liked all the extras that could be ordered through cool cabins. The breakfast food package was great.
It would be helpful if on the website part of the search criteria included "luxury cabins".
As far as the Bear Loop Castle, it is great! It would be nice to have some chairs out on patio, and the couches need a good steam cleaning. There were lots of cobwebs on the ceiling. Only half of the jets worked in the master bath tub. But the cabin itself is beautiful, and the space is perfect - we fit 4 families in there comfortably. Its nice to be able to pull a car into the garage, and that the driveway is flat - not an incline.

Love this place! Great location and the Home Theater system is awesome!! The only minus is the couch, looks like it needs a face-lift.

We rented the house for family coming up for a wedding. There were 4 couples, one with unadults. The house was large enough that no one felt cramp. Each room had it's own bath (great). Had pool table & spa and just a great house for the reunion.

Snow castle wonderland
Left on 12/29/2010 for a stay in December 2010 | Cindylou
This was our first time going to big bear in the snow and we couldn't have chosen a better cabin. It was near gas stations, restaurants and stores. More importantly it was very easy to get to and find. Everything was functional in the home and had up to date and top of the line appliances and electronics. It was certainly a perfect place to entertain family and friends. The only issue I had of unsatisfactory was the uncleanlyness of the place. They need to invest a little more in housekeeping. With all the money they charge for this place I'm sure they can afford to maintain it clean. That said it was worth every penny we spent and would love to return in the summer and recommend it to friends and family. Like my 4 year old son said," This castle is

The Bear Loop Castle is absolutely gorgeous!!! All the fixins were top notch. The only problem was that it was advertised as all the bedrooms have a spa style bathroom. That is my only grip about this place. Everything else was amazing!!!
