Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your experience. It sounds like we could have done better for you as this is certainly not our Big Bear Vacations standard. We appreciate the feedback and have shared it with the Team and want you to know that you are very important to us and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again in one of our many homes.

Response from the manager David, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Franks Old Bear. I am so sorry you did not like it! I really love this little cabin...but it is rustic. I guess in some ways you are right, it is a basic cabin on the water with a boat dock....that is why it is such a great price though! It is not rated as a Luxury Home, but rather a "Big Bear Comfort" which would be the equivalent of a 3 star. Defined: BIG BEAR COMFORT An upgrade from Cozy. Big Bear Comfortable properties offer “comfortable” accommodations with updated décor and furnishing and newer amenities in the living areas, bathrooms and kitchen. Properties offer more than one television, DVD and/or VCR player(s), internet. Additional amenities provided may include, but are not required, hot-tub, washer/dryer, game room/pool table. Just to verify ~ all our kitchens only Promise the basics. Basic pots and pans and 1 kitchen towel. The owners do not stock the kitchens for a feast so if you may need a large roasting pan, mixing bowls, and things of that is a good idea to bring them with. I do apologize the bathtub did not seal, I researched your stay and it doesn't look like you called us. We would have been more than happy to come out and address that concern so everyone could take a bath. Also, because there are no excuses for a dirty home, I am sending you back half of your cleaning fee. I know you said you would not stay with us again, but to be honest we have over 300 vacation homes on our program and I am sure we could find one that you would love. Next time, if you choose to come back, lets choose a Big Bear Select or Luxury home. I am so confident we could earn a better rating from you ~ I would even offer 15% off a future stay. No matter what ~ I wish you and yours the best and hope your future Vacations are full of great memories and wonderful adventures. Sincerely, Big Bear Vacations

“Great View”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2012

This was a super vacation for us. Spent most of our time on the front porch staring at the lake. Brought small dogs ... the fenced in back yard was great. Chain link fence with no spots to sneak out! … More

Response from the manager That view from the porch is great, isn’t it? And with such a secure backyards, there’s no need to worry about any pets you bring along. We are sorry to hear about the ant problem, however during this time of year in the National Forest, it is very common in any home to have ants. Just one of the small downsides to spending a wonderful summer in Big Bear! If you’re interested in returning in the winter or next summer, simply call, (855) 856-6706 and one of our friendly Vacation Planners can get your family all taken care of!
