Great location, walking distance to the village. Lots of space for people to gather. Kitchen was well stocked, new appliances, however, the oven wasn't working properly, after an hour of "preheating" it still never got up to 350 degrees. Bedrooms and bathrooms were clean. A couple of cobwebs on the ceiling lights and a dried out Christmas tree was still in the family room. Windows needed washing, my husband actually went outside and scraped the kitchen window. It also would have been nice if the outside had been swept and the curtains were opened before we arrived. Would have been a better first impression. The staff at Cool Cabins were extremely nice and accommodating. Would definitely recommend just take a deep breathe when you first walk in and open the drapes to let the light in.

We arrived to check into our cabin, Avalon, around 6pm. There was a line to check in but it went fairly quickly. Signed a few papers and was on our way to the cabin. It was a nice cabin. Cleaning could have been a bit better as there were spider webs in places and popcorn in the couch beds... but nothing to keep the kids from having fun! They had a blast and that was the whole point of this trip. The only problem experienced was the wifi not working properly. I did call and they would have sent a technician but we got our Ipad working but none of the kids kindles or my tablet would work... downer for the kids who live on their devices at night...other than that, I would definitely return for another adventure with Big Bear Cool Cabins. And the location was excellent, close to the village and slides, about 1-2 miles to everything.

3 bedrooms with queen beds = 6 people. 2 pull out sofa beds might equal 4 more, but one was broken and the other had dog hair all over the sheet that was on it when opened.
We had no hot water for the first night and no propane for the BBQ. They sent someone out right away and he was great.
The hot tub lid was broken and weighed 500 lbs.
Fenced in yard was great for the dog. Read more
After reading your review I wanted to take a moment to apologize to you for the issues you had while staying with us. As a company it is always very disappointing to hear that our guests did not fully enjoy their stay. I did want to let you know that the futon issues you mentioned are in the process of being taken care of as well as the spa cover. We do hope you will give us a call should you ever decide to Big Bear and give us a chance to make it up to you. Please refer to this reservation where I have added a discount for you to apply.

Two of the three rooms are nice and big and there is plenty of room overall. My party was only 4, but there was room for 10.
We spent the majority of our time hanging out in the upstairs living room, where there is a flat screen TV, DVD player, and pool table.
The back yard is on an incline, but our dogs enjoyed being able to run around the fenced yard. We loved that we could bring our pets!
The hot tub is was very nice (even though it was cold out), but it took several hours after we arrived to get it heated up.
The cabin is withing walking distance of "The Village" shopping area as well as several restaurants and bars.
We were disappointed that the rental did not offer a military discount, but if the price was right we would definitely go back again.

This is the best cabin that we have rented from Cool Cabins. There were lot of amenities and the location was very close to the village. The bedrooms are all spaced far enough apart for great privacy. The only downside was it is a little $$, but I guess that goes with the space and location.

Location was great. The cabin was very well furnished and clean (except for cobwebs on the windows). We had planned to BBQ, unfortunately found the tank was empty so had to change our plans. Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would recommend to any family looking for a get away vacation.

We stayed at the avalon and loved it! It was my Husband and I with our 15 year old Son and also took my Mother. It was nice to all have 3 bedrooms each with its own bathroom. The kitchen was unbelievably stocked with all the supplies and dishes you could ever need. We had brought up our own extra cooking pans etc., but did not need them. We contributed to the food/spice cupboard as well. The house and outside was just as described and it was all very clean. This was our first time here but will not be our last! We are thinking of making this our annual place to go. The staff at Big Bear Cool Cabins when we arrived was terrific. I did the booking and all online and the whole process went very smooth. Everything from check in to check out was perfect and had no extra fees or charges. The paintings as some have described on the wall are unique because they are done by the owner. We found them to be very special to their heart. The outdoor Jacuzzi with the fenced in yard was great. The back patio and deck are very private and beautiful. Inside, the cabin is loaded with things to do, everything from books to Tv's with a varied assortment of the DVD collection, and the pool table - we loved. The whole family can be in one big room at night, watching TV, playing pool, etc. Thank you for a terrific time and thank you the owners for all the nice touches around the place.

Everything was perfect, and the cabin really set the tone for an absolutley perfect get away. The children had the most amazing time sledding down the hit on the empty lot next door. Minutes from the Village...you really cant ask for more! The staff was helpful at cool cabins...my only complaint is we might have lost a key in the cabin. $300.00 key... so we chose to contact them to see if it had been found by the cleaning staff. The first two calls we were led to believe they understood and would try to locate the key...by the 3rd call from us, they began to ignore us. We didn't expect them to find it...but we were crossing our fingers, holding off getting a new key made. All they had to say, was "No we didn't find it" or "No we cant really try"... That really is my only negative...and it was just one office person. The rest were fantastic! We got a key made...and all is well, and as we look back at our photos... Id stay at avalon again in a heartbeat!!
peaceful and fun.

The cabin was great, really clean when we got there. Everything was in good working condition. The location of the actual cabin wasnt hard to find and was easy to locate after. Stores are not far from cabin, you can basically find any store within in less than a minutes away. Cabin is secluded from the main road which gives you peace. One negative thing i will have to say are the pictures frames in the cabin, they are spreaded around the cabin and are kinda creepy. Overall great cabin, will recommend!
Wish we could have stayed longer!!

Avalon was great! It is in a wonderful location with everything in a short driving distance. It had an extremely homey fell and the hot tub and pool table were great additions.

We loved the cabin and all the amenities. Jacuzzi was awesome although the cover was caved in, but it still worked fine and the cover still kept it clean and warm. Great kitchen and very cozy cabin and beds. The artwork is a little wierd, as others have said, but it became a source of entertainment! Location was great although not at all walking distance to skiing. It was very close to town -- derfinitely walkable and had a small sledding hill next door for the kids.

After a long holiday at work, I wanted to plan a huge trip for me and 6 other friends from work. I stumbled across avalon and booked it because it was the best priced cabin I could find. When we got there I expected it to reflect the cheap price. It was instantly one of the coolest places I've arrived at in years. My friends and I ran room to room and explored. We loved the feel of it, the artsy nature of the decor and the fact that we actually felt secluded on a mountain top. We spent most of the time in the hot tub and the game room.
This place is a great home and most definitely worth double what we paid for it for 3 nights.
Book avalon and you will have the best Big Bear ski experience!

We loved the location, easy to find and close to everything. The layout of the cabin was perfect and the back yard was charming. Everything was in nice working order except the TV in the master bedroom, disappointing because my husband and I love to watch movies and TV to relax on vacation and were unable to do that in the comfort of our room, maybe not a big deal to others but thats how we relax. Movies, Dvd's provided for you. Fully stocked, plenty of pillows, linens and kitchen supplies even laundry detergent,shampoo and toothpaste samples were there for us. Fireplaces upstairs and down.
Super fast internet. Trash pick up is off site so you will have to take your trash to the dump. We went there to have fun and we did! I enjoyed the little zoo they have there, the golf course was a rip off. Sonora mexican restraunt on Big Bear Blvd was good.

Avalon was one of the most beautiful cabins we have ever rented. Close enough to walk to town and secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet. We loved it!!

Great location, average amenities

We stayed over a weekend with my sisters and our children. The best part of this rental is the location. I originally booked a cabin in a remote area, but once I was told the hot tub was not working, I opted to switch to this rental near the village and it turned out to be an excellent decision. The cabin itself is in average condition. There are many "personal portrait" paintings throughout the house...someone fancies themselves an artist. This did not add to the ambience of a cabin experience, but nevertheless, everything was in working condition, which is really the most important thing. The cabin could use some updated furnishings and the cleanliness was not what I expected, but the experience of being together as a family was worth the trip. Back to the location. Some of us wanted to ski, others went to the local sledding park which was nearby and great for the little ones. Others simply walked down to the village and shopped, ate, meandered. The location lends itself to a variety of choices which is great when you're with a larger group. Don't expect to feel like your out in the woods. If this is what you're after, this cabin is not for you. If you want to get away but still be close to the niceties of civilization, this is the perfect place for you. All told, we had a very good experience, and even grilled some ribeyes on the bbq despite the cold temps. It was a great family experience and one that I would try again. Read more
I am glad to hear that your stay was a great experience, although we did move you from the cabin you originally booked. We appreciate all feedback, for it helps us to better serve our guests. I have addressed the issues with housekeeping as well as maintenance. We look forward to booking with you again. If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us anytime.

We loved the cabin "Avalon"we rented!!! It is the 3rd cabin we have rented from you guys ( Bayforrest cottage & heaven scent were the other two). apon our arival i thought avalon could have been cleaned a little better. We were inpressed with the maint crew that had shoveled our driveway and walkway/porch area. That was very nice not to have to worry about shoveling any snow. The cabin offered everything we needed. The location was perfect. We fell in love with avalon and we will be back for sure.
checking in took 5 minutes, super easy and your staff was very friendly.
Thank you cool cabins! you guys are great.
We love using you guys,

Everything was great but three details. When unfolding the sofa bed, the fitted sheet had a yellow spot and happend to be urine. Also, there was trash just next to one of the bedroom?s trash can. Finally, there was two boxes of pizza in the recycle container. Seems like the maid did not clean after previous guests.
Absolutely amazing will stay here again!
