“Quaint little cabin...”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2014

Nice little cabin with a jacuzzi out back. Everything was great! We'll stay there again, just need to remember to brin our own towels since the ones there were a little small and kinda rough. Everything else was great though. Close to the lake and all the attractions in town.

“Ehh so so...”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2014

The cabin was ok. Definitely could use some new decor. I was highly annoyed with the fact that the windows don't lock from inside or out and in the middle of the night the window behind the dinner table would fly open. The first time it happened at about 3am I had fallen asleep on the couch and wake to hearing the blinds loudly moving around. I thought someone was trying to get into the cabin, I screamed for my husband, he runs out the front door ready to crack a guy...come to find out, the window doesn't lock and the wind makes it swing open. Then we had a not one, but 2 roaches run across the table...one as I was reading the reviews in the guest book (which I read someone else had that same window problem..not sure why nobody has done anything about it!) After the window flew open I couldn't sleep well at all knowing someone could just creep into the cabin. I don't think its necessary to have to drag your own trash away and leave the cabin spotless when you are paying $400+ a night. Cleaners come in anyhow, I guess the only thing they really have to do is change the bedding (hopefully b/c that red flannel blanket seems like its probably always there and I don't think they have several of the same ones??) and clean the toilets. I wanted to get away for a little vacation, then I found myself cleaning more then relaxing b/c the cabin had to be in the same shape it was when walking in. I'm sure the cleaners can haul 2 bags of trash away, to charge $50 to do that is just ridiculous! A package had been delivered when we got there and I called right away to the office. They said someone would be by to pick it up (im sure it was for the owner)...3 days later we check out and it was still sitting on the front doorstep. Let me say the pictures make the place look better than it really is...it was a lil too rough for me.

Response from the manager We will have maintenance look into the issues of the windows. We want our guest to feel safe when staying up here in Big Bear. In regards to the trash, per the City of Big Bear Lake our guest are required to remove their trash to one of the off site disposal sites. We know that can be an inconvenience so we offer a trash pick up service for our guest. We hope to see you in Big Bear soon!

“Romantic Weekend for just the two of us before the Christmas rus”

Reviewed 27 Dec 2013

Checked into La Petite Retreat 12/19 before the snow started. The staff at Cool Cabins was pleasant & professional. I really didnt know what to expect when we got to the cabin because all of the arrangements were done on-line. We brought cleaning supplies, our own towles and some extra blankets. On entering the cabin, we were pleasantly surprised. The cabin was clean and very homey. We didnt need our cleaning supplies. As promised, the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes,utencils and an array of cookware. We really enjoyed our stay (3 Nights/2 Days). The fireplace was large and ready to use and the hot tub was a nice plus. The negative... The 1st night, I noticed a spider web. We knocked it down and went to bed. The next day, I noticed another spider web. That night we killed a spider in the Mud room. The last morning at the cabin before leaving, I was checking to make sure we had packed everything, I pulled the cover on the bed up to make sure we were not leaving anything behind on the unmade bed and there was a huge spider laying in the bed carrying an Egg Sack. I was horrified and my baby quickly came to kill it. I thought it was dead, but after being smashed several times with a large magazine, the spider got up and started crawling away. This time we killed it for sure, but left it on the bed for the staff to see. Cabins are meant to be rustic, but I really don't want to sleep anywhere where there are things crawling. Especially Spiders!!! Yikes !!! Glad I saw the one in the room on our last day. It could have ruined our trip. The cabin needs to be exterminated and the cob webs cleaned up. Oil of Peppermint is a safe way to rid indoors of spiders. They hate it and it will make the cabins smell really good. Just a suggestion. Over-all we really had a wonderful time and plan on using Cool Cabins to rent our next cabin.

“Comfy!!”

I loved the cabin, it made me feel like home. Relaxing, very comfortable and warm. I had a blast with my Babe celebrating our anniversary!

“It's just what we were looking for”

Reviewed 16 Nov 2013

Quiet neighborhood, but close enough to all that Big Bear has to offer- hiking trails, restaurants, town. Pros: great fireplace, hot tub, big & fully stocked kitchen, price, very homey. Cons: bathroom is a bit small but ok for just 2 people or small family, very difficult to find if you check in at night. Address is not clearly marked, bring a flashlight. Pros definitely outweigh the cons, especially for the price. If you're on the fence about reserving this cabin, allow us to convince you-- rent it. You won't be disappointed.

“Great time in Big Bear”

La Petite Retreat was Great it was clean and ever thing you need was there. Big Bear town and city was only few miles away. Everyone at cool cabins were cool. Great stay will be back and will tale everyone about cool cabins

“Peace and quiet”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2013

Check in at Cool Cabins was quick & easy, staff was nice. Directions to cabin easy to follow. The cabin was homey & comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood with hardly any traffic driving by and No dogs barking. (This was a big plus as we have 5 families in our home neighbor with barking dogs.) The kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The hot tub was great, we used it both nights under the stars. Loved the rain storms, we don't see much rain in the desert. We just really loved the mini-vacation and plan to do this every few months to get away! The only think that I didn't like about the cabin was the light chandelier of antlers above the dining room table. My husband and i both bumped our heads before learning to carefully avoid them. But in spite of that is was wonderful.

“Cute cabin”
