First of all I was extremely concerned when we arrived at our cabin mainly because I've seen the pictures on the website and read the reviews but when something seems too good to be true it probably is. In this case it was true! We arrived late on 1/22...Martin Luther King day. We were driving down from Vegas but didn't...

We stayed at Cathy's Cottages as a weekend getaway from my wife's grad school, and we really had the perfect weekend. Our cottage was homely, spacious, and had full amenities. It really felt more like a second home than any hotel, and the owner's friendliness was more like a host than just a hotel staffer. Even outside of the main...

Hello, thanks so much for this nice review. We are very pleased to be referred to as a second home by any of our guests. It is our goal to have that kind of atmosphere and experience for everyone. We hope to see you again soon! Take Care. Josh P., Manager.

Clean, cute and quick service checking in. The room was just what we needed and we enjoyed the fireplace. If I could change anything it would be to have a softer bed as the bed was a bit hard for my arthritic body. The other was the light from the porch and parking lot lights that would be best blocked...

Hello and thanks for the nice review! We are sorry to hear that the bed was not comfortable for you. We are always replacing, changing and updating beds for this reason. They are often too soft or too hard for different guests. We hope you can come stay again and try a different cottage and bed, give us a call!...

It's been nearly a week since my husband and I returned from our mini-honeymoon here. We stayed in cabin 201. We had a wonderful time and I am already longing to return. Our cabin was great, there was a separate bedroom from the main living area, which had both a jacuzzi tub and a wood-burning fireplace. We made use of...

stayed in cabin #1 for 5 days during the first week of november and couldn't be happier. being a long time user and believer in trip advisor, i was only able to find this property after considerable research. not sure what "specialty lodging" exactly means, but this is where sleepy forest falls as far as categories goes. if you just...

We stayed in number 18 for three nights and loved it. I’ve been to Big Bear many times in the years I’ve lived in L.A. but a dear friend from Tennessee who had never been to California was with me this trip. I was happy to show here one of my favorite places in the world and Sleepy Forest was...

This charming place was our home for 4 days in September. We booked rather late, so ended up with a larger place than we were planning, Cottage 12 (the Farmhouse) which apparently can sleep 7 or 8. It is a 2 story cottage with a good-sized kitchen and decent-sized dining and living area. Throughout, a farm theme has been used...

Hi, thanks for the review! We are glad you enjoyed the old farm house. We always like to mention that we have many different size cabins and cottages, as well as some with gas fireplaces. The Farm House has the wood fireplace aroma in it, which many guests enjoy, and was recently remodeled. We look forward to seeing you again,...

Husband almost had to drag me to the car to keep us on schedule. Perfect place to go relax and just breathe. Rooms are cozy, beds comfy and tubs awesome. What could be better than relaxing in the bubbles with a fire in the fireplace? Stayed in 206 which has not had the carpet switched out for solid flooring, but...

Hello, thanks for the nice review! We are glad that you mentioned the flooring, as we are about half way through replacing all of our floors with nice new wood-flooring. We hope you can come stay with us again and try one of our renovated and remodeled cottages! Thanks, Josh P., Manager.

As this property is set back from the main boulevard it is really quiet. And given that these are cottages, few common walls exist to hear other guests; a treat. Nice friendly staff, clean and adequate accommodation with kitchenettes included. Our cabin was 205, detached, with only a shower but all amenities were there. Would stay here again and recommend...
