“Big Bear Cove Stay!”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2013

Roads leading to the cabin are very steep. I loved the cabin and floor plan. It was very clean with lots of storage. The master bedroom/bath are great. The "mountain" view was disappointing & the deck needs shade & maintenance. The fireplace was broken. All in all, we would stay again.

“Beautiful vacation!!”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

Our experience in Big Bear Cove was amazing! My family and I had a wonderful time in the cabin. It was spacious, clean and cozy. It had all the necessary items and we werent in need of anything while there. The location on the mountains was just right! We were in nature. We will definitely be heading back there soon.

“Big Bear Cove - Lovely cabin, just needs a little tlc”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2013

My family stayed at Big Bear Cove the week between Christmas and New Year. The directions and road in were a snap and we were very happy when we arrived. The cabin inside is just as the pictures represent,spacious, clean and very nice. The cabin was still decorated for Christmas but not overly done, just right. Everything was clean and ready to go when we arrived. Through out our stay we noticed a few items which should be attended to. The downstairs shower doors are broke and need repair. One of the doors has been screwed closed and the other doesn't slide on the track. It is usable but not correct. The tv and audio system work, but you need to follow a hand written note that can be very confusing. We also had problems with the upstairs baths, one drain wouldn't plug and the others jets would not turn on. The only other issue with Big Bear Cabin is the proximity to the cabin next door. If you are looking for privacy this is not the cabin for you. We didn't mind the neighbors and spoke to them often, you just can't tell how close they really are from any of the pictures online. Overall this is a very nice cabin. With just a little tlc it could could be wonderful.

“Great Christmas Location”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2013

Just a few notes regarding our stay at Big Bear Cove from Friday December 21 until Wednesday December 26. Cabin was well kept and we were pleased with the Christmas decorations We have stayed in the Sky Harbor area 4 times in the last 2 years and this was the best cabin of the 4 Please review and respond to the following minor issues - Upon arrival the fireplace would not light. I figured it was a minor problem but was unable to get it going myself. I called maintenance and they quickly sent someone out who was able to get the fire place to light after several attempts. This was a red flag because it should not take several attempts to light a gas fireplace. 10 minutes after the maintenance technician left the fireplace went out and would not re-light. I drove into town and bought 2 new D-cell batteries and replaced the batteries on the fire place. This corrected the problem and the fireplace worked perfectly throughout the rest of our 5 night stay. I thought this probably should have been done by your technician. -The upstairs bedroom on the right jacuzzi tub does not work. Not a huge deal but very disappointing to a teenage girl who wants to relax in a bubble bath -TV and sound instructions for living area must be made simpler. We attempted to watch a video/dvd but was unable to get the sound to play. -Previous guests have littered the area off the back deck with trash. Sad to see such a beautiful view littered with trash again, our overall experience during our stay was very good and I would recommend this cabin and your company to other guests. Attention to the above issues would surely make future stays more enjoyable and prevent this cabin from losing some of the appeal that attracts people to it.

“Wonderful anniversary”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

My husband and I stayed in the Big Bear Cove in September, 2012. It was our 20th anniversary and wanted a special place to stay. We were very impressed when we got there. The cabin was so clean and view was beautiful. Only problem we had was other people parking where we were supposed to park,(2 motorcycles that would park on our drive)and someone would pick them up, they would show up late at night and leave esrly of a morning. Other than that everything was nice.

“Truly amazing cabin”

Loved the cabin. Me and my buddies has a great golf get away. Perfect for guys weekend with surround sound, pool table and poker table. Would love to go again soon!!!

“Nice cabin, but...”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2012

This was a lovely cabin, nice layout and spacious. But the contents of the cabin should be refinished or replaced, it cheapened our experience. I posted in a previous review that the Luxury Plus rating should probably be dropped until the broken and torn furnishings are addressed I also forgot to mention that the mattress on the pullout should be replaced- may be okay for kids but not adults. Housekeeping left something to be desired. Guest services was great, some of the roads are steep. Mountain view is very basic, but nice from upstairs bedroom (especially early mornings!) PS I don't mind being contacted for pictures of this cabin.

“One of the most relaxing visits to Gatlinburg ever!”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2012

The entire trip from the helpful and friendly personnel in reservations to the chalet itself. One of our best trips ever to Gatlinburg! The chalet was much more than what we expected. The view was breath taking, and we had all that we needed on the one and only day we were rained in from our 3 day getaway.
