We stayed here for 2 nights for our 17th wedding anniversary. The proprietor told us that he purchase the cabins and started the business because he wanted a place for couples to come to once a year to relive their honeymoon. You can see they truly care about their guests. The cabins are rustic but very clean. Beautiful fireplace and... More

Stayed here last March and it was unbelievable. Our cabin was pretty big and it looked remodeled. Only weird thing was that when we opened the door it smelled like gas. Other than that it was perfect. Our kitchen had a bar and a large flat screen tv that could be moved around to face the bed or the kitchen.... More

My fiance and I were looking for a nice, romantic getaway and Sleepy Forest Cottages was perfect! We greatly enjoyed the large jet tube and the cozy fire. The cottages are within walking distance of restaurants and there is ample parking. We will definitely be back soon.

We loved everything about our stay. The people are very friendly and helpful. We were unable to make the tv work and the office came immediately and showed us how to manage it ourselves. Very clean and well appointed. We will definitely stay again. Rod and Carolyn J.

Cozy cabins spread around the tall pines with some grass sprinkled in. Great location centrally located. Excellent privacy. AND a very reasonable rate for weekday stay for 2 days in August. Extremely clean and comfortable. A local calico cat visited on the porch to make us feel even more welcomed.

was looking to get away for the weekend before I went out of state on a job so I took my wife out on a weekend date to Big Bear. We had a wonderful time checked in at the front desk, asked for some dinner suggestions and the front desk clerk was very knowledgeable about the area.

Charming cottage in a pretty setting. Our cabin had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Office was very helpful and provided individual service cheerfully, such as helping us figure out how to use our DVD two nights in a row. They were helpful with other things as well. I found this place to be a good value, unique, charming... More

These cottages are an excellent way of escaping the routine of retirement, work or just getting away to the mountains. They are lovingly restored, various sizes to accommodate couples to small families in all seasons. They provide a feeling of home thanks to the owners who are there to help with any reasonable request to make your stay more comfortable.... More
