We really enjoyed our stay at Bear in Mind. Nicely decorated with working appliances and forced air heating. The cabin has a feeling of privacy with a little bit of a lake view, and gets a nice breeze through many windows. The main floor is nicely arranged, with 2 recliners and a reclining sofa. The only thing I really didn't like was the downward sloping yard, with a staircase down from the deck. My dogs would not go down the staircase without an escort, so I had to keep going up and down the stairs during our stay. Also, I would have preferred to stay in the bedroom on the main floor, with the full bath; however, the bed was too uncomfortable. The upstairs had a comfortable bed. but an awkward bathroom layout around the other side of the staircase. All in all it was a very nice, well stocked cabin with a large dining table. The few inconveniences are not a deal breaker, we will definitely go back again. Very quiet area, feels like a cabin in the mountains!
Would you recommend this vacation rental to a friend?

We enjoyed staying in this cabin very much! Kitchen was well stocked, everything was very clean! The only drawback was that there wasn't very much seating in the living room.
we would definitely stay in this cabin again.
Fantastic experience, great cabin for a great price.

After reading the mixed reviews we were not sure what to expect. Upon arrival the staff at CoolCabins were prepared and organized and checked us right in. We then drove to our cabin, bear in mind, and were pleasantly surprised. Nestled in the woods was the cabin. It was cozy, comfortable and bigger than expected. Sure it wasn't spotless and clean like a 5 star resort, it's a cabin in the woods! All the amenities were there and we had a fantastic experience. We are already planning our next trip. The only negative I have is the small charcoal grill. If it were a larger, perhaps gas grill, I could have cooked our food a bit quicker and not waited for the charcoal to get hot. Pretty minor but the only negative we found! Would highly recommend this cabin to any family. Kids loved it!

Lots of sleeping space, comfortable beds, well located, and a well fenced yard perfect for securing large dogs
Yard was primarily weeds and dirt and neither previous tenants nor Big Bear Cool Cabins picked up after previous dogs. Overall cleanliness was very poor. Floors were dirty, my crawler found an old chocolate almond in the middle of the kitchen floor, weeks worth of cob webs, shed pine needles, debris, and other small garbage on the front and back deck. While there was plenty of sleeping spaces, the owner is clearly trying to make the living space accommodate more people than the cabin should. There is a dining table with only 4 chairs, and you couldn't fit all the chairs around the table because there is way too much furniture in the living areas. Direct TV box was there but seemed to not have an active subscription (no TV channels). Crowded living space made it difficult to have children in the cabin. All dishes and cooking implements were pretty dirty (most sticky or caked on). Sheets, bed spreads, and towels looked well aged and could use replacement. If you are renting a cabin out in the summer, shades are important. This cabin has sheers only, and all rooms are too bright for sleeping even for a good portion of the night.
I am sure that after I post this, there will be a response post from Big Bear Cool Cabins saying that they have since gone in and cleaned and will let the owners know about the other items. The issue is that they should do all that before you arrive. In addition, we called to check out a day early, and never received any inquiry about why we were leaving early from a stay for which we paid in full in advance (clutter and filth plus kids was too much). I would have to say that while this cabin was a miss for us, it was very telling about Big Bear Cool Cabins. Certainly a company I would never use for property management in the future, and I would be reluctant to even consider a rental from them in the future. Read more
Truly sorry to hear of this. Not acceptable and we will investigate as well as correct anything that we can. As you pointed out, this won't help you but we do take these issues seriously. Unfortunately sheets and towels come from the one and only linen service that comes to Big Bear but they are at least always super clean if not the newest. We will be contacting you with a more personal response shortly. In the mean time, please know that we are sincere and we do care.

Cool Cabins service was great and convenient! Our cabin was clean, stocked with all the comforts of home and full of great amenities. It's nestled in a perfect location, within a short driving distance to most stores and ski resorts; excellent location for walks and bike rides. The huge fenced yard was perfect for our dog! Our favorite part of the cabin was the double balconies, spacious with a nice partial view of the lake, but most of all, perfect for barbecues and relaxing. We will definitely be coming back to this cabin. Our favorite so far!

Enjoyable 7 Days at Big Bear Lake
Left on 08/16/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Glenn & Mary
We spent most of our days and nights while at the property on the large back deck, very relaxing. Warm sun during the day and stars and a full moon at night. The sleeping accomadations were good and the kithcen was nice. Kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, utensils etc. Upholstered recliners need replaced or repair. Our first morning we did spend a couple hours clearning windows and clearing cobwebs. Clean windows mean all the diffence in the world.
Our 2 dogs were very satisfied with the large, securely fenced back yard. As previous reviews referenced we felt confident leaving them out when we went shopping, kayaking, fishing etc.
Pleasant stay at Bear in Mind

My girlfriends and I spent the weekend celebrating a birthday here. We were delighted by the fenced in yard, views from the porch swing, and the unintentional quirkiness of the place. There are four reclining seat options around the fireplace/TV, tacky bedspreads on every bed, and one odd adult crib/bed thing. Its walking distance from the lake and a marina where you can rent boats, paddle boards and kayaks, it's as quiet as you can ask for, and the price was excellent.

Great place for a nice relaxing trip. I don't think the cabin had been used in awhile before we got there. It was clean but very dusty and had a lot of cobwebs. We just took care of those with a broom and enjoyed our time. The only other downside was that the two rooms upstairs are connected, so to get to one you have to walk through another and sound travels throughout the house very easily. The deck was great with a wonderful sized backyard, could even see part of the lake and the porch swing was fun to sit on. Very well stocked with pretty much anything you can imagine needing. Had a little trouble getting the fridge cold enough to safely store meats, but after 24 hours it finally seemed to start getting cold. Overall, had a wonderful stay.
Bear In Mind - memorial day weekend
Left on 05/31/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | ed
The 4 of us had a great time in this cabin during memorial day weekend.. The cabin is well located and very close to both the water and the sky chair which we used to go mountain biking. The deck and the yard are perfect for family fun and we felt very confident about leaving the dogs there during the day. It is all fenced in and there's nothing to worry about there. We had a great time using the fireplace too. The only little issue is that it gets a bit cold on the second floor as the beds are very close to the windows. Great place for the price

nice, well located, enough room. One bed was not dressed, we found some spiders but I think due to the wood arround. Nice house that allowed pets! excelent!!

The cabin was very nice and the backyard was perfect for the dogs. They ran around and had a blast while we hung out by the fire place. No complaints about the cabin itself, would definatley come back. However there were a couple of issues that should be addressed before others visit: the upstairs toilet had a broken chain so that it wouldn't flush. We found this out before anything unfortunate happened luckily. Also, there cobwebs everywhere. While not the biggest deal, they gave the place a sort of dirty feel. Other than that, the place was great and I would surely recommend it.
