“Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2012

Everything was perfect. The cottages are fun, upscale, clean and comfortable. They are within walking distance of many great restaurants and just minutes from skiing. We will DEFINITELY be staying here again.

My honey and I stayed at Castle Wood Cottages in celebration of our retirement. We totally enjoyed the cozy little King Arthur Cottage and took advantage of it's amenities. We stayed here mid-week and were the only guest here... so relaxing and quiet. Fendi and his staff were very friendly and helpful. We'd def stay here again -hopefully in the Enchanted Forrest.

Our stay at the Castlewood Cottages was a truly wonderful experience. We stayed 3 nights at the Castle and 3 nights at the Enchanted Forest. Our stay was in celebration of our Honeymoon.
The cottages were absolutely wonderful inside and the theme’s represented were fantastic. We enjoyed our stay very much and the service and management were OUTSTANDING. They pride themselves on customer service which is a rare trait these days and they accomplished that 100%.
I recommend the cottages for everyone enjoying everything from their Honeymoon to a weekend getaway. The cottages really bring romance in a relationship and allow you to experience a new rekindled love. Stay once and you will be back again.
Thank you to the staff and management of Castlewood Cottages for an truly romantic honeymoon.

Room Tip: Look at the pictures and choose your adventure.

Ok it's a cheesy theme place... I get that. What I don't get is all the great reviews. The place is run down and in terrible shape. The pictures on website are very misleading. Our room was small and dingy. We made the best of it but will not be returning.

If you ever want to have a nice getaway with someone you love... this is the place! It gives you the ability to roam, but at the same time have that getaway experience! Big Bear is an amazing place it has everything! LAKE..... check, ROMANCE.... check, and wonderful dining experiences.... check! This cottage, at its affordable rate, what they offer gives all of that, especially the romance, it allows you to get away from the turn and burn of your daily life and embrace your loved one... unconditionally! I cant say enough about this place! Not to mention they have freebies constantly (lots of freebies compaired to all of the other places) and that was a huge plus for my man and I! Anyone that doesn't have a passionate love for their person shouldn't go cause they will not be able to grasp the passion this establishment has all to offer!

Room Tip: They have amazing themed rooms choose what you and your loved one will go nuts over!!!

Right off the top, I need to say that we stayed in "Kate's Country Cabin," which is described by the resort as being the hotel's "economy option." It is less expensive than all the other units, undoubtedly because it is less appealing. But we were grateful to have an economy-friendly room and you get what you pay for, so I'm not complaining. I just want to give a fair picture of our particular room.

"Kate's" is a humble, very small (they say "cozy") cabin which looks like a 1970's room, partially renovated. It was clean, but a bit on the shabby side and also a bit claustrophobic. It was extremely cold inside the cabin when we arrived, but the room eventually warmed up after we lit the heater. There was a wood-burning fireplace available in the room--a very nice touch--and also a coffee maker, a mini-fridge and a microwave.

The web site description says the room has a Queen sized bed. That may be true, but it felt more like a double. Check-in was at another hotel several miles away--not terribly convenient, but doable.

Advantages--the location was great--in the center of town, within walking distance of The Village. It was clean. Because there was no attendant on the property during the day, they had left a note and the key for us so we could get in. Much appreciated. The check-in person located at the other hotel was very nice. There was assigned parking very close to each unit. The grounds were small but lovely; we enjoyed sitting in the porch swing, enjoying the silence during the afternoon. And again, we appreciated being able to stay in a resort room for a budget fee. But when we can afford it, we'll return and stay in one of the more expensive rooms, which look intriguing.

Room Tip: Look at the descriptions on their web site. Each room is different.

This place was like a trip to the past. We loved the room which we almost never left it. We went there for my birthday, and felt like a queen in there. The costumes were great as well. The staff and the other guests were very friendly and let us look into their rooms. The hot tub was absolutely terrific! We are definitely going back and trying another room. I highly recommend try this place out and enjoying going back in time.

Room Tip: Try any room. They are all perfect. One very quiet place to relax inside or outside.
