We stayed for two nights for Oktoberfest and had a great time. We love the decor and lovely furnishings and especially enjoyed the jacuzzi. The place was very clean as well
The only thing that we had problems with was the shortage of towels. I had to go out and purchase additional towels and wash cloths for our stay, along with laundry detergent and paper towels.
The main problem we had though was the terrible mattress in the downstairs bedroom. We had one adult sleep on the bed and it was a terribly uncomfortable and lopsided mattress lacking any support whatsoever. Our young adult daughter (25 years old) awoke to severe back pain from sleeping on this mattress. I would strongly reccomend replacing this mattress with a new firm one. Otherwise the upstairs beds were very comfortable and our stay was lovely. Thank you for a great weekend! Read more

Really Nice Place
Left on 02/09/2012 for a stay in January 2012 | Wilma
Overall our stay was great, for the price we paid. We knew other friends that stayed closer to Bear Mountain and paid less for the weekend. This place is literally walking distance from the lake.
The only downside were the ants on kitchen counter (ants in the winter?) and the fact that we had to transport our snowboarding gear trough the front door, as we did not have access to the garage which I can understand but there was no storage area so we stored our gear (six people) in the laundry room so if we needed to use the washer or dryer we would have had to move all our stuff. I am usually quite picky and was hesitant on renting the place because I thought everything was going to be old and dingy but to my suprise everything was clean, furniture was decent my friend that slept in the bottom bunk said there was a big dip in the mattress, an array of cooking supplies/utensils (well stocked kitchen, I felt like I was at home. The stove is slightly bent) but the hot tub was absoulutely great. I wish the TV was bigger but who cares about that? Other than that this rental would be decent for a group of seven people.

It’s excellent to see you had such a wonderful time at Knotty and Nice! Thank you for taking your time to give us your feedback, as it allows us to address concerns that our guests might have with a vacation home. We hope you will consider us for future stays here in Big Bear!

The carpet desperately needs to be replaced and the jacuzzi was dirty! I was afraid of getting some type of infection given the grey buildup surrounding the tub. Yuck!
Beautiful, fun, relaxing long weekend... too bad it was so dirty

Beautiful cabin, awesome furnishing, comfortable bed. Amazing location, the lake was beautiful and fun with awesome boat rentals with walking distance. Our only issue was the cleanliness -- there were literally dirty dishes in the cabinets, I had to clean the fridge before I could use it and all the counters and floors were dirty. When I very nicely mentioned this at the office I was told this was because it was almost end of season and they go in and do their deep cleaning when the season is over. Well, this would explain the unswept rugs, cobwebs in the corners and light dust -- which I could take; but when you pay that much for a cabin with a fully stocked kitchen you should be able to use it without cleaning it first.

Knotty and Nice was just the right size for my kids and grandkids. The place was somewhat dusty and we saw a mouse in the house but i guess thats not unusual for the location. Other than that everything was perfect. Nice and quiet! Sat on the front porch and got a lot of reading done, bbq every night/smores! The kids had a great time. Weather is wonderful and the lake is beautiful. Seemed to be a problem with the computers on day of check-in but we got free tickets for the ski lift (thank you) and that was very nice. All in all had a great week!

very dirty, not vaccumed which is a problem with children. lack of linens, not pot holders. we got spa folliculitis and are suffering with it now! very painful from an unclean spa. dirty deck with sawdust all over from a recent reapir and wet varnish on the gate & exposer nails on deck which was a challenge with toddlers. very, very dissapointed with the facility for the price we paid.
Amazing guys weekend in Big Bear!

My friends and I decided to have a guy's weekend in Big Bear and I'm so very grateful that we chose to book with Big Bear Vacations! Everything was perfect. Relaxing. Spiritual. Truly what we all needed. From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out, we were "in the zone". The location was great with many shops and restaurants nearby as well as a supermarket so we were able to purchase our own breakfast items and cook them the next morning. It was the first time, in a long time, that me all my dear friends were able to connect and not worry about our busy lives back in the city. I'm truly grateful for being able to unplug and for the fact that it was only 3.5 hours from Las Vegas.
The Knotty & Nice cabin had all the amenities we needed and I look forward to staying there again soon...
The only regret is that we didn't try the hot tub because it was too cold that weekend. Read more
We have a lot of love for our Knotty and Nice #177.
This property has been with us for years, pleasing guests every weekend.
Owners will be doing some nifty upgrades for the summer activities here very soon so stay in touch for a great home getaway
Great cabin atmosphere!

A pleasure staying at this unit! More than enough space, clean cabin. gave for the perfect cabin atmosphere with the actual log cabin look and an old pot belly stove heater! the jacuzzi outside was the perfect way to relax in the evenings i only with there were a light outside to see the display on the jacuzzi. Coincidentally it snowed a little over a foot while we were thre so it made the experience even better. highly recommended cabin as well as property managers! Will definitely use this place again!

We had a wonderful time at this cabin! Met all our needs and it was a great location for all of our activities. The only fault was cob-webs in many locations (which we had read in prior reviews) and the kitchen had a distinct insect spray odor. These were minor details. Everything else was great!
Would definitely stay again

Nice place to stay. Had every pot/pan/utensil/dishes I needed for my 2 month stay while working up in Big Bear. Had one problem with the garbage disposal but was fixed immediately. A few other minor things probably need fixing, but hey, its a rental...
not good experience

THe cabin was really nice and we loved the location. The only negative was the cabin had several cob-webs and a few spiders that we felt shouldn't have been there. All the cob-webs could/should have been removed by a maid service before our arrival.
Again, great family time in a beautiful cabin, just a little on the dirty side.
Thank you! Read more

We have an in-house housekeeping service that is available if things are not up to standard during your stay. Please try to come and stay with us again and we will better meet you needs.
Adorable Big Bear Vacation Rental
Left on 07/15/2008 for a stay in July 2008 | Jennifer M.
This rental was just perfect! Very well kept inside and out. Our family had a great time. The neighborhood is adorable and the neighbors are nice as well. Very close to Marina's. You can walk to the Lake, but there's no public access nearby - so you can see, but not use unless you jump in the car. Very close to shops as well.
great cabin home, comfy & cozy

the cabin was beautifully decorated, it had all that was featured online. it was within walking distance of the lake. the only disappointing thing was: the spa was not working! my husband was so disappointed! He was really looking forward to relaxing in the spa!We would really like to stay again, we really love the mountains. we may try it again soon. Read more
