Location was quaint. Access to the place was a bummer...A large uphill of stairs to enter the home was not easy for loading or unloading! Definitely not handicap friendly,for the elderly, or injured. Read more
Thank you for leaving us your feedback, we apologize if you didn't realize this location had quite so many stairs. In the future, we do have several ADA accessible homes available!
Great aside from some minor hiccups

The cabin was itself was great and it was a great experience. If you're looking for a quaint little place to get away, this cabin will do it for you. the full kitchenware made it easy for my girlfriend and I to cook ourselves dinner, and with the fireplace on the cabin felt very homey. Getting into the cabin was a little tricky because we didn't receive any instructions other than, "put the code into the lock and the key will be inside". We got in front and after putting in the code there's a black switch that we kept pulling down, but nothing opened up. Finally we called and they sent someone who showed us how to do it saying that they had hired new people and he wanted to figure out if they were giving proper instructions because he'd been coming out and helping people all day - so make sure you are thorough about asking how to open the lock! The night we stayed there, the shower wouldn't turn on because the knob but weren't bothered too much with that since we would only be staying for one night. We were a little disappointed when the hot tub wouldn't get hot, but again we didn't care too much. The cabin was quiet, cozy, warm, fully-equipped, beautifully decorated, the beds and couches were very comfortable. I would stay here again, but if staying and really looking forward to the hot tub, enquire whether or not it works.
The fire place and cabin made us feel nice and cozy.

The cabin was very cute and had a nice deck. The spa had no water in it. Cool cabins was very good and offered us another cabin with a working spa. The other cabin they put us in was very nice and cozy. Cool cabins was very accommodating us. Thank you!

My family and I had the best time. The cabin was super clean and organized, the bathroom was clean and has a beautiful tile shower. The bedrooms clean and in great condition and the deck with spa was wonderful. Great cabin to stay at. The only thing we didn't like was the neighbors had a camera pointed from their window to the cabin front door.we think they just wanted to make sure nobody messed with their big dogs,but it was a little uncomfortable when you leave the cabin. But we didn't let that bother us. Our overall experience in the cabin was great.

the water heater wasn't working, once we called them and explained the problem they said they were gonna send someone to check it out but he didn't show up till the next day (imagine not having hot water for couple of days when ? people need to use it and take showers). plus the microwave wasn't working...

I had a great experience staying at Big Skye. The place is cozy and clean, and the kitchen is very well equipped with all the kitchen ware necessary for cooking a delicious meal. The location is excellent since it's walking distance to one of the hiking trails. It's also very close to one of the best boating marina in Big Bear Lake.

I stayed in Big Skye over the Labor Day weekend, 9/1 - 9/4.
The cabin was as described but the services were not. It took three vsits from maintenance and one visit to the office to get things right. That's too much for a two night stay!
Here is a list of the problems we had:
The heater was not working. The maintence man found that the pilot light was "off".
Jacuzzi was not heating. There were no instructions regarding the operation. Maintenance concluded that the jets needed to be on before the heater would operate and this proved to be the case.
The Jacuzzi light did not work.
The BBQ gas tank was very low. After 5 or more minutes with the gas fully on, maintenance man was still able to lay his hand flat on the grill and hold it there saying "I think it's getting warmer".
There were no blankets at all in the cabin, just a thin cover on the beds. The temperature went down to the 50's on Saturday night and we spent an uncomfortable night.
The bellows for the fire were broken. Bearing in mind there were no firelighters this was a problem.
There were no filters for the coffee machine.
Had the cabin been checked properly before being rented to us none of these problems would have existed.
When we came in to the office on Sunday morning, we were given 2 blankets and some coffee filters and another man was sent to look at the BBQ. He fixed it, possibly by changing the gas tanks, either way it was not possible to put one's hand near the grill within a couple of minutes.
We are very disappointed at the lack of preparation prior to "giving us the keys".
It is reasonable to expect a rental to be serviceable and completely prepped ao that we may fully enjoy what we paid for. This was not the case and that is totally unacceptable.
I emailed Cool Cabins on Tuesday September 4th but as of the 13th have had no response. Their customer service seems to about as good as their prep of the cabins.

Was surprised how disappointing this place was given the other good reviews. When we arrived the cabin had clearly not been cleaned. There was food all over the kitchen floor counters , and sink. The shower curtain had mold all over it. The couch was very old, I have seen nicer ones in college dorms. It also had food crumbs all over it. The cleaning crew came shortly after we called and made the place tolerable, but it really is in desperate need of a good cleaning.i suppose it technically is within walking distance to the lake and village, but the walk requires you to take a major highway that does not have sidewalks. The hot tub is not hot and very small. The hammock was missing. The next door neighbor has a personal shooting range in his backyard. Left our phone charger in the cabin after check out and it was "never found," otherwise stolen. Will not use cool cabins again.
I traveled to Big Bear with my wife and 2 boys, ages 8 and 14. The Cabin was fairly close to the way it is advertised. It was private and relaxing.
The cabin is about a 20 minute walk from the village. Just close enought to make it walkable and just far enough to make it tiring. The proximity to the lake required a drive and the drive to the slopes was about 10 minutes.
We also stayed at another location closer to the lake and actually preferred this one.
The hot tub was nice and the cabin itself was quaint with just enough amenities. The hammock outside was a nice touch.
Booking and checking in/out with Cool Cabins was great.
Definately consider this place if you are going to Big Bear.
The cabin was very nice and private pine trees on both sides of the property nothing really bad to say about the cabin even though no trash bags or toilet paper was at the property everything else was fine the hot tub was perfect the gas grill worked just fine I would definetly go back to this cabin

Good location, quiet and clean. However hot water was not available. No shower for 3 days!!! After contacting the customer service, repair man came over but stated that nothing he can do. we were told we have to have the water running for 5 min. but after 45 min. nothing has changed. Barely warm and unless you have a shot of drink- kind of hard to get under cold shower. Read more

First time booking with Big Bear Cool Cabins. We had a great experience. I would have given it a 5, but we did have a leak under the sink and they never came to fix it. We had our own slope right next to our cabin! We walked down to the lake and had dinner at the restaurant down the street. Overall had a great time and have already recommended it to friends. Will be back soon! Read more
On behalf of Big Bear Cool Cabins, we would like to take this time to apologize for the leak under the sink that was not addressed during your stay. Our maintenance guy actually went out there yesterday to fix the leak but it must have been right after you left. Once again, we are very sorry they did not show up during your stay. Besides that one issue, it is very nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay with is at Big Skye!
