We stayed in cabin #258. The maintenance shed was outside our back window and they were renovating the front office so they were sawing and using power tools most of our visit. I have to say that the cabin itself was good and very clean. They could use some updating. The bedspreads and mattresses are old and the microwave and coffee pot are about to croak. The Mr. Coffee had to be more than 10 years old and took 45 minutes to brew coffee.
I wish there was another place to sit and watch TV besides the bed. The TV faces the bed and doesn't move and because of the jacuzzi there is no seating except for the bed.
The pool motor and spa were out when we arrived but the pool was repaired the next day. The spa was repaired the day before we left but they left the parts out on the sidewalk in plain view for several days and this did not match the level of hard work we saw from the maintenance crew.
On Friday night there was one guy cleaning up the maintenance shop until after 7pm. I am sure that this shows dedication but when your window faces the shop the noise is annoying.
I was impressed with the grounds and how clean they were but I thought the patio near the lake and the "beach" were disappointing. They did not match the attractiveness of the rest of the grounds.
The staff was friendly and we looked around Big Bear at other places and thought that this place looked much nicer than most of the others we saw.
I would stay here again I just wish they would pay attention to the details and take this place from good to great!
