“Perfect waterfront vacation”
Easy helpful booking. Check in was easy and friendly. House is in a perfect location to town. Right next door to big bear marina. Spacious and comfortable. A tad outdated but not a big deal. Very clean. Jacuzzi was great, especially being right next to the lake. Wish we had access to the garage, but it was not a big deal. Private dock was great with plenty of fish to catch if that is your thing. Probably caught 12 bass and two catfish. My wife is not necessarily a "lake person", but she is even asking when we can come back. I will definitely rent this property again!!! Great for families!!!
Response from the manager Thanks for the great review of Storybook Lakefront. Isn’t that view of the lake from the hot tub is exquisite?! And with such short drive to town, Storybook Lakefront makes for a great getaway spot that lets you enjoy all the wonderful activities here in Big Bear Lake. We’re really excited that you’d like to stay in Storybook Lakefront again, so why not give us a call and set up your reservations for next year? Simply call, (855) 856-6706 and one of our friendly Vacation Planners can get your family all taken care of!
“Best Birthday Ever”
My family recently stayed in this wonderful home to celebrate my birthday. What a treat! This home is very spacious, warm and inviting. The view of the lake is spectacular, the jacuzzi on the water is amazing and the location was perfect for a walk to town or a nice little hike in the surrounding forest. We had such an enjoyable time that none of us wanted to leave on the last day. I will definitely be renting this home again and look forward to another Storybook memory. Only one small suggestion...the Christmas decorations need to be put away. Although we all love Christmas, it seemed a bit strange to see decoration well after Easter =0)
Response from the manager Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to leave a review of Storybook Lakefront. It's always great to know when our guests enjoy staying in one of our homes as much as you did. We are pleased to hear you had a great birthday! If you would like to come back, please feel free to give us a call at (855) 856-6706 for one of our friendly Vacation Planners to help you plan your return visit to Big Bear!
“Absolutely the best weekend stay!”

Our helpful Vacation Planners are ready and waiting to help you plan our next trip to Big Bear.
“Great Views-Lots of Space-Some Limitations”
Awesome views of the lake! Tons of elbow room. Wonderful scenic-view family room. Huge kitchen (maybe a little too big, for efficient cooking). Very close (walkable) to downtown Big Bear and stores and amenities. Has its own boat dock, literally a few feet from the back door. Limitations: In the winter, you should be careful booking for larger groups. There are only four bedrooms (the place is huge). Bunking-out in the family room, on the couches, could be a challenge because that room gets very cold (lots of windows)-so if you have more than 5 sleeper "units" (couples or individuals) you'd better bring sleeping bags or extra blankets. Internet service is slow and unreliable! Family room fireplace draft is a challenge. We had to keep a door or window cracked to try to keep the smoke from backing-up into the room. Lots of stinging eyes when starting a fire.
“A Fabulous Experience!”
We had recently lost 2 of our 5 golden retrievers within 13 days of each other, 9/27/11 and 10/10/11, and were grieving terribly. We needed to get away and heal and found the beautiful StoryBook Lakeview #664 home through BigBearVacations.com. I called at the last minute on Friday, 10/14/11, and spoke to Erica and she was the most caring, sweet person and arranged for our arrival for Monday, the 17th. We packed up our 3 fur babies and headed out and when we arrived for check in, Ashley greeted us and was awesome! She made it so easy and welcoming and we were in and out within 5 minutes. When we drove up to the house, we absolutely loved it! It was so much more than we ever expected. Beautiful, inside and out, and steps away from the lake. It even had a yard which was wonderful for our babies. We spent much of our time out on the beautiful deck which is steps away from the lake. So beautiful and peaceful, which is exactly what we were looking for and needed. The house was open, clean, homey and the view was amazing. You couldn't look in any direction without a view of the lake. The beds were so comfortable. The fireplace in the living room was awesome and every bedroom had a fireplace except one. It had everything furnished we needed except the food. The house is exactly what it says - "A Storybook". When we travel, one of our main concerns is a "Pet Friendly" environment and this was more than we ever had experienced. I can't say enough about this property and would recommend it to anyone. We will most definitely be returning and just wish our next vacation was coming up alot sooner. On check out, Mathew was a pleasure to deal with and had us out in less than 5 minutes. What a great staff you have and I will be recommending Big Bear Vacations to everyone I know! Thank you for this great experience; it was so relaxing and just what my husband and I and our 3 Golden babies needed. The only negative I have is that our stay was much too short! :-)
“very good except for the bee problem”
we had a problem with yellow jackets but you did do your best to take care of it.
“Felt like home”
What a great way to end the summer. Property was wonderful, not a single complaint. We took big trips abroad the past two summers and neither compared to our four nights at this property.
“Excellent famiy vacation”
We loved this house and the convenient location to so many things. We fished from the back porch. We watched boaters from the sauna. We walked to town for dinner, bowling, jet boat ride, parasailing. It was so nice not to have to drive places - a real vacation. I wouldn't recommend the Pirate Ship Tour, it was very disappointing.
“Its the perfect location on the lake!!!”
I think this was our 5th or 6th time we've stayed at the Storybook Lakefront and once again, we had an absolutely amazing time! The house is located in a nice quiet cove that doesn't get much wind at all. The view from the house are spectacular and the fishing is great right off the dock. The house itself does need a little TLC but not much. They addressed the ant problem. We did not see a single ant or bug of any type during our entire stay. If you want a wonderful relaxing vacation, this is the place to stay. I am in the travel industry and can go almost anywhere at a discounted rate but we keep going back to the Storybook Lakefront because we love it so much! We highly recommend this property!!!
We enjoyed this house very much...beautiful lakeside view, beautiful bedrooms , bathrooms, living room, and kitchen. Fabulous jacuzzi. We will definitely return here. The problematic issues were...Ants!!, oven smoked from past drippings even after I cleaned it, fireplace smoked into the living room.
Response from the manager Thank you for responding to our survey. This house has a monthly service for ants. The house is right on the lake and in a cul-de-sac. Building fires is Big Bear is a little different than when off the mountain. Smoke will come into the house if the chimney has not had time to warm up and create a draft. warming should be done with the cleanest fuel possible (duraflame log not wood-wood smokes). We hope you were able to enjoy your stay while in our winter wonderland.
