Welcome home
This place was great for our vacation. Very warm, cozy, close to the wolf zoo and slopes. Close to the markets and big bear blv easy to get everywhere. Good size back yard and front to play around and build a snowman or grill. Heater and fireplace, so we were always warm especially with the nights dropping to 18 degrees. The neighborhood is nice n quiet. Good for nice walks and nice view of the stars. The sofa couch came in handy when we wanted to spend time in the living room instead of our own rooms. This will be the second time i use FlipKey and will definitely use it again. Thank u for helping my friends and i make amazing memories.

It's ok
Not enough towels, make sure you ask for extra towels when you check in. Absolutely no condiments in the fridge. Lots of dishes and utensils. Don't forget to turn the water heater on, it's located behind the house in a closet, no one explained this to us. Water was scorching hot. Two table chairs were broken, dining table wobbly but seats 6. Definitely a "party" cabin. Larger bed was ok, comfort-wise. Smaller bed was thin and uncomfortable. One room has a stair case leading to the attick which was locked, of course, and seems a little creepy and weird. We used the stairs for a "closet". There were extra blankets in the tiny closet of the room with the heater and larger bed, which were on the floor, we didn't use these at all. Bbq outside was good, huge patio, driveway can fit maybe two cars, maybe street/curb parking also. Close to grocery stores and slopes! Ceilings about 7-8 ft high. Cute overall, functional

We are looking into the table and the chairs to make sure that the table is fully functional for the next guest. The water heater is on and ready and warm for our next guest. We appreciate the feedback and are excited to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back to Big Bear soon! Ali

Good Value!
It was nice for the price. Very small two bedroom with one adjoining bath. Heating only in one bedroom plus fireplace in the den. Very little in the way of amenities, no salt, pepper, sugar, lighter or matches! Had to make a quick run to the market. The carpet was dirty. Plenty of blankets. Quick response from Cool Cabins when we had a minor problem. Rowdy neighbors.

For small family only
The place is clean but I was a little disappointed on how small the place is. The kitchen is nice and equipped. The beds in both room are not comfortable at all so we were not able to get a good rest and sleep. Location is nice, near the snow summit. I will rent again from Cool Cabin but will look for another place.

Cute but not practical
Stayed there this past weekend (1/21/12). Cabin has a great front/back yard. Very easy parking. Nice porch front/back. Inside is very small. The fireplace is not a real fireplace its more like an old oven, doesnt work very well to heat the room. The front door doesnt lock. The front door is also not sealed properly so the cold air comes right in. The heater is only in 1 bedroom, so the rest of the cabin stays freezing cold. There is no door on the 2nd bedroom. The kitchen faucet did not work (no water in the kitchen). Shower is tiny. Very poor indoor lighting. Cabin doesnt seem to be well kept. Wont stay here again. Not worth more than $100 a night.

Many guests find Nicole's Happy Place to be more than accommodating for the amount of people it sleeps. Thank you for taking the time to share the details of your stay. We have replaced the lock on the front door as well as the seal. The kitchen faucet has been repaired and we have informed the owner of the issues with the lighting in the home. Thank you once again; we hope you will give us another chance in the future. The Big Bear Cool Cabins Team
