This place had a gorgeous view of the lake and we saw a beautiful sunset . The bathrooms and bedrooms were nice but the living room and the downstairs room really could use some updating and nicer furniture. The carpet upstairs was old and stained. The living room had only one couch that was old. The downstairs had a futon that doesn't fold out because it's broken. The hot tub was nice. Overall a good place to spend the weekend.

Very unhappy and I could not waite to go home I left on Sunday at 6 am I was so unhappy. But good luck fooling someone else. Read more
We are so sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the cabin's amenities. This cabin does have cable TV and again we are sorry to hear that ESPN was an amenity that you were expecting and was not offered in this particular cabin.

Great house. The process was easy. Extra stars for the company as they made sure our reservation was available amidst some cancellations and changes.
It has a 4 people Jacuzzi, Pool table, BBQ, Patio, washer dryer, kitchen, 3 car parking, 3 bathrooms. So, perfect house!
Cons: its on the other side of the bear lake, so its a 15 min drive to the snow summit, Vons, restaurants etc. So you have to plan well once you head that way.

This homey little cabin offers a breath taking view of Big Bear Lake. The cabin layout is designed to take complete advantage of it's location with floor to ceiling windows. Our family had plenty of space to gather together or retreat to one of the several bedrooms. We spent most of our time in the cabin at the large dining table enjoying meals or playing games with the scenic view as background. Super fun time! The pool table and sauna were a bonus. I love this side of Big Bear, more quite and serene but close enough to drive over to city more activities.
Best View was a really nice place to stay! Fawnskin is a great alternative to central big bear, as it is isolated, but not too far from the action if you need something from town. House is really nice inside and the 180 degree view of the lake is fabulous.
1) We arrived and the lock box was jammed. So we had to wait about 45 minutes for the maintenance guy to arrive to get into the house (after a long drive with hungry kids).
2) The balcony needs maintenance.
3) The neighbor complained in an unpleasant manner when we used the BBQ because the smoke was blowing in his direction. Poor guy
we had a realy good time just wish the house was clean and didnt have to spend time to clean it up when we got there first ,this is the second time im staying here and i love the view of the lake from the house.

This is a really nice property, but pretty overpriced based on the amenities. The master bed was quite uncomfortable and the king size bed in one of the other rooms was pretty shaky. The gas fire place had been converted and we weren't warmed of that, so we had to start our fire boys scout style, and as cold as everything was, the wood would not stay burning. The internet is not wireless and even though I plugged in the ethernet cord, it still did not work. We also could not get the spa to stay warm, not sure what was wrong with it.
Other than those things, the place is pretty spacious and comfortably sleeps 3 families! There are also extra pillows and blankets, which was really nice.

This house was perfect in almost every way. The view was stunning, the hot tub was great, and the game room with pool table was lots of fun. The two complaints I have are the following: 1) The two bunk beds were very uncomfortable. Our kids had a hard time sleeping and woke up grumpy in the morning. 2) There were rat droppings in the kitchen and bathroom when we came into the cabin. I have a feeling no one checked the cabin after the last time it was cleaned. Other than that, it was a great vacation. Read more

I loved the cabin! It was comfortable with good parking and a great view. The pool table was great and we enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen.
For the number of people the cabin sleeps the hot tub was not big enough. But we still enjoyed it!

Check-in was easy although it would've been better if I had just received the lockbox code via email and was able to go directly to the house which is in Fawnskin. The rental office is on the opposite side if the lake which isn't really that far away in the grand scheme of things but after 3.5 hours in the car on winding roads with a baby, it would've been a great help. They were supposed to send me an email with that information as far as I understand but it never came and when I called I was told to check-in at the office.
The house is a bit off the lake but very close to a marina where we rented a boat. The view is great and the upper deck is a nice place to hangout and bbq. The lower deck area with the jacuzzi wasn't as pleasant. In fact we didn't use the jacuzzi because it just wasn't nice down there. Also, the jacuzzi cover wasn't even locked and on all the way when we got there.
The house was generally clean and were we happy with it overall. At least one of the bed sheets had rips in them which wasn't great. The worse part was the mouse that was running around the place. It was sighted a few times but he kept to himself as far as we knew so we just joked about it and didn't let it bother us. Another issue was the blinds. One upper blind wouldn't lower so our great view out was partially blocked from upstairs and then a couple of the lower blinds wouldn't go down.
The lower level pool table area was nice to keep the kids busy. It had a flat screen as well. The main grocery stores and Big Bear main street area are about 10-15 minutes away which was convenient enough. We cooked at the house each day and used the entire kitchen, it more or less had enough equipment and settings to handle all ten of us.
The view and house overall was pretty good and everyone was generally happy with it.

The Best View cabin provided terrific panoramas of the lake. The cabin itself was in terrific condition and provided a lot of comfort. The additional pool room/game room downstairs allowed for many additional activities/games. The family room and kitchen were in great condition and allowed us to "make ourselves at home". The secluded area in Fawnskin was both a positive and a negative. On the positive side it was very tranquil and quiet. The only drawback is due to the seclusion it made it really difficult when we were snowed in over the weekend. It took us nearly 8 hours to dig ourselves out of the driveway.

I really like this Cabins, because it is not expensive and the location which is very beautiful. It is also very convenient to have a dinner in the town. Everything in the cabins is great and we really enjoy it.
