This funky little property is tucked into a neighborhood just off the main road in Big Bear. We were there in the summer and stayed in the Antony & Cleopatra Cabin. The cabin was tiny but packed full of interest. To be honest, it was clearly a 3 star room, but I'm going to give it 4 stars just for...

Thank you for the review and staying with us. In our romance package "Turn Down Service", Silk Rose Petals, Long Stem Silk Rose and Candles arranged around the in-room jacuzzi (the $25 romance package), we use silk rose petals and silk long stem rose on the bedding to avoid staining of the linens. We do also offer 1 dozen hand...

I've stayed here twice, in the Castle Garden and the treehouse themed cabins. Both were amazing but I'll just describe the Castle Garden to keep my review short. Let me start by saying I'm your typical guy. I usually dont notice or appreciate detail, and if my girlfriend was to cut 4 inches off her hair there is a good...

I read a the negative reviews before I came and I booked anyway, and found I had an entirely positive experience. The thing I noticed with the bad reviews were those people generally stayed in the smaller cabins and in the winter when it was cold. My husband and I stayed in the enchanted forest cottage during the summer, so...

We stayed in the Woodland Treehouse. It was exactly as advertised. The room was very clean and it had a great deck which you could sit on and watch the many trees that surround the unit. This was perfect for a quiet, beautiful getaway in the mountains. The property is well maintained and has many different fairytale like aspects to...

Hubby and I rented the Robin & Marion room for 2 nights for our 20th anniversary. It was ideal! Cozy and clean, everything you might need was there. Close to the main street, yet very quiet and private, and very close to the square and the lake. Could've made it home for a week!

My boyfriend and I wanted a nice getaway near L.A for my birthday, and we discovered Big Bear Lake. All the cottages are themed. We choose the Crystal Cave because it looked the most unique. We truely felt like we were in a magical getaway where no one could find us. My boyfirend paid alittle extra for the romance package,...

My fiance and I went here for a weekend getaway in the snow. If it's a secluded, romantic, rustic time away from the hustle and bustle you're looking for, then that is what you can expect. All of the cottages got booked that weekend, yet we only saw other guests once in the three days we were there. It's very...

This place was amazing. 1) Plenty of privacy in the little cottages 2) Some reviews mentioned the cold but the heater and the hot tub both worked perfectly. We didn't have any problems with getting hot water even though it was freezing outside. 3) Romantic atmosphere: the themed room, the costumes, the rose pedals... 4) It is very close to...

Everything was perfect. The cottages are fun, upscale, clean and comfortable. They are within walking distance of many great restaurants and just minutes from skiing. We will DEFINITELY be staying here again.
