What Past Guests Are Saying
Booking and check in were great. The discription and pictures of the rental really differed from what we ended up with. The rental was an older house. Nothing updated. The outside and front of the house makes it looks really nice but when you walk inside, it's nothing but older carpet, walls, artwork, furniture. The only updated features was a 37" LCD tv.
Location was kind of in the middle of nowwhere. A little hard to find at first. Lots of turns. Overall, Not bad location. I wouldn't recommend walking to Bear Mountain. A short drive would probably get you there.
We enjoyed that it was a big house. It had 6 bedrooms. All with queen beds. No doubles. The kitchen was huge. plenty of room for big families. The deck was a great bonus too. If it snows, it would be a great area for kids to play on.
The rental was somewhat "cheap". Probably beacause it was older. I believe it was originally rated as a 3 star. I would say more of a 2 maybe a 2 1/2..Next year, we will most likely go somewhere else..

Nice for large group! Sledding right off back deck! Checking in was easy but then had to wait for over an hour for maids to clean. Finally was able to go in house around 7:00 p.m. Driveway was covered in snow and ice! Vehicles sliding down driveway after being parked. Rental company did have someone come out to spread cinders but ice was to thick!!! We ended up shoveling driveway for 2 days til clear enough so vehicles wouldn't slide.

Thank you so much for your feedback on Wodehouse. Unfortunately, it is common during the winter here in the San Bernardino National Forest to experience difficulties with ice and snow since temperatures are frequently below freezing. It is however, excellent to know you had a great stay in spite of the difficulties you experienced during your stay, which we do apologize for. Thank you again for the review, and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again.
We had a great time!
It's a great house with lots of room!! We really enjoyed our stay here.

Thank you for your review of Wodehouse. We’re so happy to see you enjoyed your winter time stay in Big Bear Lake. If you are contemplating a summer time trip to Big Bear, our Vacation Planners are able to help your find the right home for your future vacation.
We enjoyed getting away with kids and grandchildren. We wanted to come when it was cooler but one of the problems we encountered with that is that one of the front facing bedrooms only have small lace curtains which do not keep the cold out nor give any privacy. We had to put blankets up. The bed in the master seems a bit worn and lumpy. It was nice to back up to the forest as the grandchildren enjoyed exploring with their parents. The upstairs kitchen and family room area is great for family to interact together. Nice fireplace as well. Overall we had a great time.
Palos verdes, CA
My 5 friends and I had a very relaxing and pleasurable experience. The house was clean, well equiped, and the setting was beautiful. The sleeping and bathroom accomodations were just right for 6 male adults. The check in and out was easy and hassle free.
Wonderful group getaway.
We came up here to celebrate a friends bachelor party. Everything was fantastic and everybody loved the cabin. There was plenty of space for everyone with all of the beds. Being able to grill and feel out in the woods at the same time really brought everything together. Several of us are already planning second trips up to Big Bear. Thank you.
We liked a big open kitchen with a living room space.
All down staires were little bit dark.

We are glad to hear that your stay was great
By opening the large vertical blinds in the livingroom alot more light can be priovided for future reference.
We had a great time, everything was as described. The house did seem like it needed a good spring cleaning. Some of our group had problems with allergies.
The backyard snow hill was literally off the porch. Awesome!
We are thinking of booking it for our next group adventure!!
San Clemente, California
The wodehouse cabin is a favorite family hangout.
Our family loves the Wodehouse cabin. We always enjoy ourselves at the cabin. We love the lay out of the cabin and feel at home there. The view from the back deck is beautiful. We also love sledding in the back yard and walking around the neighborhood. We feel truly relaxed there. We could not ask for a better place to be.

Thank you for your reveiw on The Wodehouse! We are glad you enjoyed your stay!Hope to see you soon
Doesn't get any better
This was a great place to stay. The family room with kitchen was perfect for all of us to just hang out. I think the best feature of the house was the huge sloping backyard, the kids had a blast sledding and having snowball fights. After reviewing countless other houses, everybody agreed that in the end this was the perfect house for a perfect vacation. It simply couldn't get any better than this.
Beautiful cabin. Had a wonderful experience. Having a mountain a a backyard was incredible. The rooms are comfy. Just a great place.
The layout is spacious and has enough rooms to accomodate large parties. The backyard is a hillside which provides a great place for sledding.

Best Christmas Ever!
This house was everything we expected and more. The house is very big and love the main area for family to get together. The kitchen is big and opens up to dining room and living room. It has a large tv we used to watch movies at night. The best part was that we didn't have to leave the house to take the kids sledding. You just have to walk out to your backyard and there were large hills covered in snow for plenty of fun. We had a large group and there was plenty of space for all of us to be very comfortable. We did have a difficult time going up to the house and leaving the house due to snow so I suggest bringing chains for tires. Also we couldn't find a vacuum anywhere in the house. We would have like it for the living room where we spent most of our time. Other than that we loved this house and cant wait to return.
This cabin was really worth the money. It was so huge with the 7 bedrooms, one including 2 triple bunk beds. The living space and kitchen was amazing and i loved the 2 patios! Also, the staff at the check in location were very polite and helpful. The only problem me and my group ran into was finding the place, but we weren't lost for long. The location of the cabin is perfect. Its quiet and secluded, yet there are neighbors. We go on a retreat every year and I will make sure we stay here again next fall.

Fun summer trip
We looked at alot of different properties and really liked everything about this location. We read all the reviews and the one thing that stood out is that previous customers said they come back year after year. Well that is definately the case for us. We loved the house and location and everything was presented correctly. Even the floors creaking while people walk, but it added character to the house. There was ample sleeping for adults and kids and we all were surprised on how many amenities and things are left for us to use. The only thing I would recommend is for the front stairs to be replaced. They are broken, wobbly, and unsafe.

Great Retreat 4 Large Family
There were a lot of us. Everyone got a bed. House is pretty clean. Great retreat against the mountains. For light sleepers, ear plugs are recommended. Has all amenities, including dishwasher & 2 TVs. Our family had a great time & would go again.
San Diego, CA
The Wodehouse was great, nothing fancy inside but
very comfortable for a big family. Unfortunately we
were snowed in for the weekend, so make sure you take
chains, the hills to reach the cabin are very
dangerous during snow conditions. Overall the cabin
is great, the backyard has great slopes for sledding
and hiking. Great cabin overall, my family had a
Great time, Enjoyed the home but have a suggestion.
I have previously rented this home. This was my fourth year renting this same home and I always enjoy going with my family. However, there are some suggestions I have always wanted to make. First, the bedroom downstairs (with the bunkbeds)is a great bedroom for kids to hang-out and they enjoy it. However, I have noticed that the couch in this bedroom needs to be replaced. Believe me, we are not looking for luxury, but this couch has served for many years and should be retired. I cringed as I saw my kids sitting on it while watching t.v. because it seemed so dirty. If possible, please replace it. A used couch would be fine, but something not quite so old. Also, the pink, folding, spongy thing/couch/chair, in the same bedroom should also be disposed. It's very dirty. Everything else was great; we noticed some repairs and improvements and we thank you (i.e., the bedroom at the end of the hall had a working lamp and there was a new blender and coffee maker). Kudos to the rental office, staff was polite and gave us great customer service. Also, we really enjoyed the goodie bag.:)
We love the location of the home, the forest in the back yard is beautiful is the best backdrop to enjoy family. The home is comfortable and clean.
What we like Best: The accomadations, plenty of space with a central location where we can eat as a family. And, plenty of room where we can retire and have some privacy.
Least: Some of the furniture in the common areas needs to be replaced.

We are so glad you enjoyed our home, and thank-you for your suggestions. Next time you visit, your kids can hang out in comfort on our brand new couch in the bunk room!
Great stay for families with kids!
The registration process was easy and the cabin much more functional than expected. The kitchen was fully equipped and we had a great time with the "private" sledding area out back! The basement entrance was very convenient to load and unload.
The cabin did not have internet access and no AT&T coverage (iphones) and the rooms are very "rustic" so bring earplugs if you don't want to hear the plumbing or footsteps at night.
Overall, it's a great place for family gatherings and we would definitely consider staying there again.

We now have internet access and unlimited calling in California.
Warm and family friendly cabin in an ideal location.
We've stayed in this cabin multiple times, so you can see how much we like it. This time, we had a minor disappointment/inconvience in that the outside steps were locked. We saw no other cabins with simialar restrictions.
Great Cabin for a large group!
For our large group this was a really nice cabin. It had everything we needed. We did happen to take our own coffee pot thanks to the previous comment. It had a wonderful view with all the trees, and many little hiking trails in the back. I would stay here again and I would recommended this cabin to my friends and family.
Orange County, CA
Spacious & comfortable, but dated.
The Wodehouse is spacious and comfortable. It has a large common area and kitchen. The bedrooms were nice sized too. We had 12 people staying here and did not feel crammed at all.
The furniture and decorations are extremely dated, which gave us a laugh and something to talk about. Some of the fixtures (light switches, heating fans in the bathrooms) are old and do not work.
There is a hiking trail literally out the backdoor, a grill on the patio, and a great deck to view the wilderness. Overall, this is a nice place to stay.
Los Angeles, CA
Great place and well kept!
The house was great and was very clean. It was exactly like the photos except
none of the cool antler looking furniture is there which is a bummer. I
recommend this house for any groups looking to get out of town and get away!
