“Very nice and cozy”
Reviewed 8 October 2007

Cabins4Less was recommended to m
e by a friend who goes there yearly for their bike tour. Despite the previous reviews, I found the cabins very clean. comfortable and cozy. The location was perfect, less than a mile from the village. My husband and I took a walk every morning to a great breakfast place practically next door, Bianca and Pierres, and then down to the lake. I found the manager, Patty, very helpful and pleasant. We ran into the managers one night while having dinner and they even bought us a drink! They were a ton of fun to hang with!!

The property itself is really cute. The landscaping is beautiful and the decorations are very unique. It really feels like you're at at mountain retreat, not just 2 hrs from LA.

I loved it and we've already made our reservations for Thanksgiving weekend! We took advantage of the return customer discount! :)

Reviewed 27 March 2007

Okay, the price seemed pretty good. They were flexible when we had to reschedule. But it was all so shabby. My wife and I wanted a room to ourselves and this seemed to have ample separate sleeping arrangements for our kids. But the fold out futon in the livingroom even sagged when folded up—unusable for sleeping. Bunkbed ladder was broken. The wall furnace didn't heat the whole place even when on full time (in the winter) so the bunk room was too cold for our kids to use. So we didn't get the private bedroom we hoped for--had to put the bunk mattress in the livingroom so we couldn't use the fireplace either. Bathroom faucet was detached, heat lamp didn't work so no heat in bathroom, plumbing backed up. Window covering was, literally, a piece of black tarp! This is one cheap operation. When I complained on checkout, manager suddenly had excuses (old cabins), solutions (could have given us portable heaters that they never mentioned at check-in), could have fixed the sink, etc. etc. "if only we'd asked." My complaint provoked a fight between the manager couple. And where's that 10% discount for our "next visit" (there won't be one) he promised? So if you rent at "cabins4less" (their street sign no longer says Holiday Haven), start complaining right away, even if the kids want to go to sleep, or nobody's in the office, or you're rushing to get out to dinner or to the slopes...

I found this cabin through cabins4less and they were able to rent a one night stay at an affordable $89. After staying here, I'd much rather have paid an extra $30 to stay somewhere nicer. My boyfriend and I always do the budget hotels because we don't stay in the room other than to sleep and shower but this cabin was horrible. This place is C-H-E-A-P! If you like that then, its a great deal for you...however.... There were no towels, the bathroom door didn't close, almost everything you touched broke, the window, the blinds, the curtains, the door lock... They had just stained the cabin and it smelled so bad. We tried opening all windows but that didn't work. There is no AC and Big Bear gets hot in the summer. The cabin could be much nicer but they don't care about making it look nice at all. There was construction equipment everywhere. There was a cement mixer in our patio. Bottom line, you get what you pay for. Pay $30 more to stay somewhere a lot nicer and comfortable.
