Our first time using Cool Cabins and we loved it! Awesome cabin in a beautiful area of Big Bear, 3 bed room/2 full bath, not by the lake but a drive away, so nice and quiet with great accommodations, posted a few pictures on social media and already had friends looking to inquire on how to book here!

Very disappointing property. The condo (unit 27) was clean inside, but had missing slats on the vertical blinds. The entire condo complex was in a general state of disrepair. The most profound example of this was the pool area. The deck was in bad shape, and the pool itself was very dirty. A huge downer on the hottest weekend of... More

We've been using cool cabins for the past 3 years, we have never had a problem with any of the rental properties that we have stayed at. It's always been a pleasure to go through cool cabins from booking, checking in, the stay & checking out. I don't plan on using any other site or rental company. Thanks cool cabins... More

I understand that their "busy season" is during the winter and that is what they are mostly prepared for, but that doesn't excuse their lack of preparation for their summer guests. We walked in and it was so hot! We couldn't find how to work the AC so we called.. "There is no AC" "it's never been this hot, we... More

We arrived late at night and thought at first that the house had been broken into. The chairs in the living area were on their sides and one was broken and the back door was unlocked.
