The cabin is really gorgeous. We had 2 kids, 2 parents, 2 grandparents and an aunt with us, so we wanted a lot of room. The bar and pool table downstairs help you forget you can't go to a real bar because you have kids. The slope next to the cabin provides a perfect sledding opportunity. The driveway is steep and icy, as is the drive up the streets to upper Moonridge. The indoor jacuzzi in the master does not work.

Bear Creek Lodge offers an excellent layout for two families traveling together. The upstairs living area and downstairs game room offer lots of space and options for everyone's taste. Please be aware that the driveway is extremely difficult to navigate in snow/ice conditions. Beds were manageable but could have been more comfortable. Kitchen is fantastic with every appliance/tool you could possibly need to make a gourmet meal!

My original cabin was given to someone else but the folks at Vacation Rentals got me another cabin and even upgraded me which was nice. There service is really friendly and fast. The cabin was really nice although the heating system does not distribute heat through the all place which was disappointing. I was expecting a little more from a 5 star cabin. The Kitchen was really nice and high-end and they had lots of movies and games to play.

Enjoyed the experience from the booking thru speedy
check-in and the entire stay. The home was spacious
and had all the fun amenities to keep everyone
entertained. Kitchen was well equipped and loved
the stove. Washer/dryer very handy and cut down on
the need to pack more clothing. Snowed one day so
having the two Expeditions in the big garage was a
relief. Moonridge is beautiful and close to slopes.
Really enjoyed the hillsides all around the home
for sledding. Kids enjoyed seeing the wildlife
right outside the windows, including the two
coyotes that ran thru each day. Everyone is eager
to return as soon as we can. Only complaint by all
of us is how uncomfortable the beds were. Owners
need to invest in better mattresses. One couple
even moved to the sofas on the last night.
Otherwise, the stay was awesome. TM
Absolutely wonderful home...except for the driveway!

The house was fantastic and had ample room and amenities for me and my family. We spent a wonderful 6 days and truly enjoyed the home and Big Bear.
The only negative of our stay was that we were never informed (online, by email, or when speaking to your representatives) that the driveway was very steep. More importantly, we were not notified that since the roof has no gutters, when the snow melts, it drips water directly onto the driveway and the entrance of the house. This resulted in the build up of a 3" layer of ice on the driveway. With 4 wheel drive, it was manageable, but one of our vehicles was front wheel drive and that proved to be EXTREMELY dangerous to get it out of the garage once the ice layer had built up. We ended up spinning the car 180 degrees trying to exit the garage. As there is no parking on the street, we were forced to park a vehicle in the garage.
When I spoke with one of your reservation agents, her response was simply, "people should bring chains". Being that their was little to no snow cover on the roads, no snow storm expected, temperatures in the 50s and 60s and CHP and CalTrans not indicating the need for chains, I found this to be an inappropriate response. I think it is fair to say that a driveway is not the decision making factor to bring chains or not when traveling to the mountains.
I would recommend you mention this driveway/ice situation when people rent the house and, at a minimum, keep a few bags of salt in the garage to avoid any potential liability issue in the future.
Sorry for the length of this review, but I felt it necessary to make you aware of the danger of that driveway/liability when it ices over.

Having come from Australia, we found the facilitis great. The house was clean although some attention could be given to ensuring the oven was cleaner and dust balls under the bed removed. Overall very good.
