What Past Guests Are Saying
Fantastic place to stay with family
Just spent 5 fantastic days at Colbert Cabin. Great place to stay with a family. 8 beds so everyone had a very comfortable place to sleep without having to use one of the couches by the great fireplace. Kitchen good sized, a little "light" on the silverware and some of the cooking pots and pans but even with eight and making every meal, we really didn't have too much trouble. This is not 'The Ritz" but if you want a very nice comfortable place to stay with a family that is Moonridge and not too far from Big Bear Mountain resort, this is a great place! Eight beds, great rock fireplace, decent kitchen, Internet, washer/dryer, garage to keep at least one vehicle, what's not to like?! Would definitely rent again and highly recommend! 4.5 out of 5!

Spacious and perfect for a family with kids
Colbert's Cabin is very spacious. The layout is perfect for a family with kids. Overall, it exceeded our expectation. There is a broken dining chair that need to be fixed. The bed linen needs to be updated. Other than that, we enjoyed the cabin thoroughly. Btw, the backyard has a slope that would be fun for the kids to play on the snow.
Response from Big Bear Vacations - 04/23/2012

As wonderful as ever.
We enjoyed our 5th, or 6th, stay at the Colbert Cabin, which is always well maintained and seems perfect for our 3 generation family. Matthew gave us the best service ever at the check-in counter.

good over all
great price, clean, large plenty of room, good location, the only problem was only 1 tv worked, (i had 5 teenagers) i called but no one showed up to fix the others, take your own game boards the ones there are old and missing pieces, please fix tv woud stay there again
Response from Big Bear Vacations - 04/06/2011
Darn those board-games!!!!
We are very pleased to hear that you had a great stay
We did in fact purchase a brand new plasma TV so come back and bring along those kiddies!!!
Great place and location
Went up with 6 friends during a snow storm. the only problem was that there was only one shovel. Two would have helped a lot, but overall the place had everything. great place for a weekend trip.
Response from Big Bear Vacations - 03/02/2011
Thank you for your review.We are thrilled you had a good time.Hope to see you back soon.
Everyone Enjoyed the Cabin
Location, 1 minute drive to Big Bear resort
Living Room & Kitchen connected, making it seem bigger
Toilets worked fine, no problems
You can fit at least 3 vehicles, 1 in garage & 2 in driveway
Great value for the price
Plenty of dishes, pots, pans, utensils
Plenty of windows to bring in the sunlight.
Finding the cabin at night is very difficult. They need lighted address
Some furniture needs replacing, felt a bit outdated.
I would recommend this cabin to anyone. We had a great time and will come back again.
This cabin was wonderful. The pictures of the cabin doesn't do it justice. All the rooms were bigger than what was shown. Central heading worked perfectly. A hill is located behind the backyard for sledding. I would definitely rent this cabin again in the future!
This Florida Family finds Winter Wonderland
This home exceeded our expectations in every way. We could find little to complain about considering we choose this home from other online reviews that lived up to all that was said about it from the cabin's location, to the openess of the home from one room to the other. This layout fit our family(including a 2 and 6 yr old) so well. We will definately choose Colbert Cabin in the future.
wonderful place for children
We have stayed at this place for 3 years because the kids always want to come back. They stay in the bonus room over the garage so are within sight but out of the way. We liked the new practical carpeting and fresh furniture upholstering. We had everything we needed. The driveway had been cleared and the outside lights were on when we arrived, which was very appreciated. The cabin is near the forest and has a large yard within view so it's easy to watch the kids. There was only one person at the check-in desk so service was quite slow.
Response from Big Bear Vacations - 02/08/2011
Thank you for allowing the kids to pick the cabin,We will forward this to the owners of Colbert"s Cabin #966.Thank you for your review.We hope to see you again soon!
Comfortable peace and quiet
We come to Big Bear a couple of times a year to escape the heat. This house was great! Very roomy and well furnished, although I had to run back into town and get trash bags, paper towels and dish washing detergent. The Moonridge area was very quiet and this street was especially secluded which made for little or no traffic noise. It was so nice to be able to put our vehicle in the garage and not worry about the "Big Bear Paint Job" i.e. pine sap! That feature is a rarity in rental cabins. The deck was great to watch all the birds and squirrels and hear the breeze while having a cold one and munch on a steak. We may very well reserve this one again next summer.

This Cabin has everything you need!!!!
Cabin was very spacious and clean. They have everything you need in it, from board games and a VHS player to spoons and knives in the kitchen. I would definitley recommend this place. Aside from being a great place it is very affordable.
Had a great time.
Had a great time. Cabin was comfortable and cozy. It was nice there. Didn't have much snow but the hill in back was not to high to sled and we loved it. We all had a great time. A few things to address: There is a musty smell that once aired out is not to bad. Could use bigger pot(6qt)and a Lg skillet to cook with. The TV in the living room is small but ok. Location is up the hill by Bear Mnt. In heavy snow its a bit far from Snow Summit for us to drive. But not bad. Torn between 3 and 4 stars. Service was fine.
San Diego, CA
This was a very spacious cabin. The location was wonderful. The kids were able to play outside in the snow or we could walk across the street for sledding. It was very nice. The furniture seemed alittle old and the carpet in the master bedroom was stained. That wasn't nice. We would probably stay there again.
Let it Snow
The service was good considering we arrived in the middle of a snow storm there was no power and the roads were all a foot in snow, Four wheel Drive is A MUST for this house if it's going to be snowing. The Zoo and the ski slopes are close to the house. Our Family really enjoyed this home, everything was great. The Only thing that we didn't prepare for was not being able to go to the store, even with four wheel drive we could'nt make it for two days. Just prepare for the unexpected this house is away from the city.
Orange County, Ca
What great fun!
We rented this cabin after scrolling through many on this website as well as others. We liked the recommendations of the others who had stayed and took a chance. And guess what? We LOVED every minute of our stay! There was a perfect little hill out back for our little ones (under age 8) to go sledding. It was so convenient to just dress them up and send them outside to go sledding all day! The cabin was way more spacious than it appears in the photos and our little ones loved the little loft. I think everything was made a little more magical by the fresh blanket of snow we got each of the two nights we were there. The rental company even sent someone to shovel the snow on walkways/porch of the property! Yes, as others mentioned, no locks on the bathroom doors were a little inconvenient and the open glassless "window" in the loft was a little dangerous for the kids. However, all in all, it was a fantastic stay. We're are looking forward to going back to this cabin soon!
the best vacation ever
the cabin was great it was a home away from home. we plan to make it a yearly trip and stay at the colbert cabin every year. we couldnt of pick a better cabin the back yard was perfect for sleding and the snow that we saw was incredable.
new years trip
this cabin is very well located up in the woodsy area of town. As a dog friedly property it hadvery dated 70's oldddd furniture. But there was enough room for our group of 3 couples. The kitchen was well supplied with pots and pans, beds were comfortable. The tvs were old and didnt work all that well. one woord of caution the doors are like cardboard and noise can be a problem
Great Cabin, Great Price
We stayed at the cabin during the July 4th weekend and had a great experience. The cabin was an excellent setting for our group as we had 2 small children and 5 adults. The San Bernardino Forrest was just steps away and the cabin is located near the end of the road so it dosent get much traffic. The televisions could use some updating but we weren't there to watch tv :) We would stay there again.
Nice and quiet seclusion. Great for families!
This place is very well suited for a large family. With enough sleeping area to fit 8-10 people, the house has more than enough room for a weekend get-together. The common area is very spacious includes a player piano (that does need to be tuned, no biggie).
The kitchen is very well equipped and spacious enough for a small handful of cooks at a time. The "bar style" also makes for a nice touch. I would not recommend trying to bake anything though, the oven seems to be VERY underpowered.
The bedrooms are very homey and cozy. All beds were clean and comfortable. The raised bedroom had a nice small office area for the on-the-go businessman (by the way, an unsecured/free WIFI internet connection was available, probably from a nearby house). It also contained many board games for children.
Neither of the bathrooms had working locks, so for those paranoid about using the bathroom may want to bring a door sign of some sort.
The garage can actually fit two cars, but its a very tight fit, and i'd recommend two compact cars. Otherwise, only one full-size car. The driveway can fit 2 cars easily. There is only one other house neighboring Colbert Cabin. The other side and the back is literally the National Forest and gives a lot of freedom for outdoor snow play.
The neighborhood itself is very quiet, and the road leading to the house is pretty long and secluded. The house can keep fairly loud noise levels sustained.
Quick Warning: in the Dining Area, there is a wooden support beam obstructing the walkway, not too big a deal, but the wood is very old and was giving our guests splinters.
But All-in-all -- a GREAT stay.
PROS: large area, secluded, cozy, well-equipped kitchen, player piano, large living area
CONS: underpowered oven, no bathroom locks, wooden/splintered support beam in dining area.
3 Day Weekend
3 Day Weekend
We stayed at this cabin for 3 nights. Overall, the place was very clean and had a nice 'home' environment. There was plenty of room for the kids to play. They especially liked the board games available for them at the loft. There was a ravine in the back of the cabin. So we were able to go sledding there without having to leave the premises. There was also and area for the kids to play with and even make a snowman. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Colbert cabin and will recommend this place to our friends.

The comforts of home
My friends and I decided to take a weekend getaway to the snow. After weeks of searching for the perfect cabin, we stumbled across Colbert's Cabin. The pictures do not describe how wonderful this home is. As soon as you walk in the door, you can feel the comfort and love that has taken place. It is close to everything, and stocked with all the necessities needed for a group. I will DEFINITELY stay again. Also, the home is much bigger then what the pictures show. It was absolutely PERFECT! Thank you so much for such a great experience!

San Diego, California
Cozy and Convenient
This cabin suited our needs very well for 3 adults, one teenage boy, and two teenage girls. The girls (two teens and one adult) enjoyed the loft. Plenty of space to spread out in the living room/great room. Kitchen was well-equiped. Moonridge location is close to Bear Mountain and Snow Summitt. It can be hard to find the first time as "Sand Canyon" takes quite a few turns.
Great place for young children.
There was plenty of room for 3 young children AND 3 adults. The cabin was well supplied with everything that we needed.
Wonderful home, perfect for families
This a perfect house for families to get together, very spacious, and very comfortable. The kitchen es big, and fulls of pots y and pans, don't need to bring a thing. The location is perfect and near trails, and only a few minutes from the lake. I'll recommend this house to any one. My family and I agreed that next time we'll definitely need to stay longer.
the Dennis family
This was a great place to go and get away from the noise of the city. It was plenty big enough for my family of 4 plus one of my daughters friends and our 3 dogs we went on long walks in the nice neighborhood and bbq on the back patio. this place gives a new meaning to the term silence is deafening (loved it) my only complaint is i didnt like the satalite t.v. (cables better)
weve been renting cabins here in big bear for over 10 years and this one made the top ten list enjoy!!!!!
