“SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE - SIMPLY PERFECT”

My husband and I arrived to find the most detailed and beautifully decorated cabin we've ever been in. It was so perfect with everything we needed for a three day stay. The location is quiet and peaceful. The Jacuzzi was wonderful and so relaxing during the day and night. The bed and bedding was the most comfy! The layout of the cabin was roomy and with the decor and furniture very cozy. The side area has a private kick back spot which is lit with lights for the night. Perfect for a night outside to unwind. We enjoyed the front porch to just sit and take in the beautiful surroundings. It's located with easy access to the village and nearby market, restaurants and outdoor activities. I highly recommend staying at this cabin. The owners were so accommodating and made sure everything was in place and ready for us and even gave us suggestions on their local food favs. We just loved this cabin, the owners and Big Bear! Check them out you will not be disappointed!

This weekend couldn't haven been anymore perfect and it's all due to the cabin! It's newly renovated, cozy, peaceful, relaxing and perfectly located. I rented this place, a total shot in the dark, and am beyond happy that I trusted my instincts. It was a surprise for my boyfriends bday and he was literally in tears of gratitude when walking through the cabin. The village is a 5 minute drive, hikes are a close walk, there's a market across the street, very convenient! Guy was so kind and allowed us to check in early and check out late. The jacuzzi was heated and ready to go when we arrived, parking is in the front, theres a nice spot on the front deck to chill and listen to nature, when the sun went down we turned the fireplace on, we relaxed and watched movies on the flat screen, had nice dinners in, the bed is VERY comfortable! Everything's new and clean! We will absolutely be making it a tradition to stay at the Simply Irresistible cabin at least once a year. Thank you Guy!

“GREAT First Trip to Big Bear”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

people found this review helpful

This review is long awaited but I needed to review the great experience my husband and I had on our first trip to Big Bear. It was a last minute decision and we happened to come across this quaint cabin and thought it to good to be true. I reached out to Guy and was contacted back almost immediately. To our luck, Guy had a last minute cancellation. The communication and the booking process was completely hassle free and Guy was ever so accommodating. He even offered us a military discount as my husband is active duty. We arrived at the cabin and were absolutely delighted. It had all the comforts of home away from home. It was perfect for out romantic Christmas getaway. Everything was provided in the way of linens and a fully equipped kitchen, we really didn't have to leave. Being the first time booking through VRBO we were a little hesitant. Thank you Guy for making the process so smooth. I would definitely recommend this cabin to any couple looking for a quiet romantic getaway to the mountains.

"Simply Irresistible" Is truly a newly renovated rustic cabin. Every inch of space has something special. The two large TV's were fun to watch with hot cocoa. The cabin is extremely clean. It is a close drive to the village, dog park, and a walk on the North Shore. In forty five minutes a beautiful pleasant drive to Lake Arrowhead. Guy the owner is pleasant to work with. Have a wonderful holiday.

“Perfect romantic mountain getaway”
Reviewed 15 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

This cabin is a perfect place to get away from the routine, cuddle up, and enjoy the mountain air. It has been equipped with every amenity you could want, and the decor is what I define as "rustic chic". My favorite things are the roomy slate shower and the poofy queen size bed.
We also loved our picnic lunch outside and reading on the porch. Of course the big flatscreen got a lot of use since it is football season.

The location is great too......we took walks to the lake, and it was just a short drive to the village. A perfect romantic mountain getaway for our anniversary.

“A jewel in the mountains”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

To celebrate our fifteenth wedding anniversary my wife and I decided to stay local. Our choice was a two day getaway to Big Bear. In the past whenever I rented a cabin in the area the accommodations have been a bit "funky" at best. When we arrived and opened the front door we were pleasantly surprised. The entire cabin had been recently renovated with a rustic feel. There are two new big screen TV's in both the living room and bedroom. The kitchen has been updated and stocked with all of the tools needed to prepare meals in house. The bedroom has a VERY comfortable king sized bed that was very hard to leave in the chilly mornings. The bathroom has a newly updated shower with new fixtures throughout. The spa/jacuzzi maintains a constant temperature and is enclosed in a very private gated area. The free wi fi worked perfectly with plug in's for ones personal devices. The only thing I would recommend is to bring a bathrobe to use after using the jacuzzi. There is a small market within walking distance and the main village is only a three minute drive. The ski lift's are another five minute drive past the village. For a very romantic dinner we dined at the Peppercorn restaurant in the village. Very good food! All in all we had a very memorable romantic experience just two hours from L.A. We now have our "jewel in the mountain."
