Very Good

We found children's clothing ( t-shirts, socks) in our bed sheets, so most likely they were not change after previous tenant. We are unhappy with the comp providing the keys:forgot an expensive knife in the dishwasher, they want to charge us $25 just to go look for it, no guarantee they will find it... also, during the holiday you pay more stay less as the checkout is at 10 and starting check in at 4, which actually can take up to 1 hr, depending on how many guests in line. Don't think we will book through this comp. again FB

Response from the manager Thank you for your constructive criticism. We apologize for the inconvenience you had during check in and will take your feedback into consideration when preparing for our very buys holiday season. We strive to have our homes at clean state for your arrival. We do have an in-house housekeeping staff to rectify any issues that may arise during your stay

Only complaints are that it seems that the tv in bedrooms were not working. ( I dont know for a fact I wasn't there to watch tv.) Air hockey equipment were hidden and not found until we were about to leave.

“Not so Good”

We take Big Bear Vacations almost 6 times each winter, but this was the first time we have used this web to rent our house and we regretted it. Before going we were pretty excited, but when we arrived there the house was in a horrible condition, there were spider webs all over the house, the dining table was broken, the dishes were dirty and the sheets smelled really bad. I wish we had a better experience, because we had a friend who was vising there for the first time and he did not like it...but the location of the house was perfect, also the phone lines were helpful, other than that I would not recommend the house.

Response from the manager I would have to disagree, I would very highly recommend Grumpy Bear Retreat #1195 to anyone. The reason that the home was not up to cleanliness standards was because you recieved the key early (per your request) before the housekeepers were finnished. We garentee our homes and cabins to be ready at 3pm and we have a flawless record in doing so. We do apologize that you did not fully enjoy your stay

“a very comfortable and cozy cabin.”

Really enjoyed at this wonderful house. The cabin was clean, roomy, and comfortable for the entire family. The location was excellent. The closeness to the slopes and shopping was excellent. I would recommend this cabin to family and freinds.

We had a great time. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. This was our first experince in the snow and it was both exciting and memorable. The house was clean and spacios. We had some trouble with the satelite early in the day. I called on Christmas day and a serviceman was there within an hour. I would definatley return for another short vacation. Thanks for everything

“A+ :)”

Lots of space and sleeping area. Very comfortable. Good Neighbor somewhat quiet but if you like that its fine. I cooked for my friends and everything i needed was there. The only negative thing is maybe the kitchen is kind of old but everything works. I would book this place for my next bear big trip again :)
