“Only one problem with the Bear Trap”
Reviewed 15 September 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Everything was great, except a few minor things. The BBQ grill was old and needs to be replaced. Half of the burners were broken, but we still managed to cook everything we needed. The gas tank emptied in the middle of our BBQ, but management was quick to replace the tank with a new one. Not to mention, it was after hours when they did. Also, we had an issue with the lockbox, but they came right away to replace that as well. Overall, it was everything I expected, and I would definitely stay there again. I want to thank bigbearcoolcabins.com for their fast service and response to issues.

“Awesome cabin with great hot tub!”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We absolutely loved this cabin, especially the outdoor space with the hot tub. The cabin was clean, and quaintly decorated with a log fire for the evenings and BBQ out the back.

It does get very hot upstairs during the day, but by night time it had cooled to a nice temperature for sleeping. It was incredibly peaceful, and though a little further out from everything, meant that we had great privacy and a lovely place to relax.

“Frustatration and Disappointment”
Reviewed 7 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The principal reason why i rented this cabin was because it has a hot tub. The problem was that the HOT TUB DOES NOT GET HOT. The water was barely warm (the hot tub was on for hours). Me and friends spent the whole day snowboarding and the thing we wanted the most was to get back to the cabin and use the hot tub to help us to relieve the soreness of our bodies and relax. Everyone was very frustrated and disappointed. The hot tub should not be advertised. Also, the beds are really short, my feet was sticking out of the bed, and i am not tall. The bedrooms are smaller then what it looks like in the pictures. The only positive thing is that the cabin is cozy.
