Annual Family Vacation
This was our 4th year renting this house and we love it here! Having the loft was amazing for the kids. The flat yard for playing outside is hard to come across. Plenty of room for all of us. We're sad to see the lake level going down, but hoping for a great winter and returning next year. Having the dock to hang out on all day is a huge bonus. Plus, the neighbors are fabulous and friendly.

Overall the "cabin' was as advertised, unfortunately it's tucked between two gorgeous rental properties that make the racoon's nest feel less than special...

Lake front
We had a great time at the lake front property. The home was comfortable and had plenty of room for multiple families. The house has had some updating but is more of a rustic feel but for location and price you can not beat it.

Best Weekend Ever!
I had the opportunity to bring my children and grandchildren to this perfect property and it was the best. The cabin was cozy and comfy and the private boat dock really convenient. The staff at the property management company were friendly and helpful and overall it was a great time for all!

Manager Response: Thanks for your review! We are pleased that you created some awesome family memories at this lakefront cabin! 'Cozy, comfy and a convenient boat dock' is a great way to describe this lakefront cabin. Welcome back again soon!

Girls Weekend Getaway
We recently stayed at the Lakefront Raccoon's Nest for a girls weekend getaway. The rental company was incredibly accommodating and worked with us to meet all of our needs. The property was a nice size and comfortably accommodated our group. It was also very close to downtown which worked out really well for us.

The Cabin was easy to find and we received the instructions in a timely manner to enter the cabin. It was a very nice location on the lake front and we had a great time enjoying the snow that had fallen during the night. Over all the experience was great because of the location of the cabin. I would recommend taking extra blankets and pillows because the ones in the cabin are old and no longer a “pillow” effect but flat cushion. So if you like cushioned pillows and cozy blankets take your own, other than that small thing it’s AMAZING!

Perfect Getaway for a Medium sized Family
The cabin was clean, cozy/rustic and the views were great! We used the Jacuzzi and first floor patio area quite a bit because of the beautiful view of the lake. We used the charcoal BBQ also! We stayed busy with a few horse shoe tournaments which was a lot of fun to play with the family! It was also very convenient that the trash site was only 1 mile away. The house is not wheelchair accessible.

Manager Response: So glad that you enjoyed your stay and connected with family on the lake.

We stay at this double cabin property EVERY TIME. It's unpretentious and rustic. Can't beat the view (especially from the jacuzzis) or the expanse of open space for the pups and outdoor activities as the back property is the lake & bank. We bonfire on the back landing in 2 portable pits we bring, the pathway along the house when snow covered makes a great slope for sledding and safe alley to set up an archery lane. They renovated the kitchen and master in the Den, was much needed and very nice. There's enough cookware to get by but we're a gourmet bunch so we bring our own. TV's are good for sparse viewing, we hooked up RockBand & watched the Super Bowl, played a bit of foosball but THIS location is prime for its nearly neighborless outdoor space. If you're a large group planning to stay indoors watching TV the whole time then maybe look elsewhere. ONLY COMPLAINT WE HAD is that some of the outlets are loose which makes keeping things plugged in a bit difficult. BUT any issue can be overlooked because the customer service agents & manager were the absolute sweetest and most accommodating.

Wonderful Big Bear cabin
This was our first time renting a cabin in Big Bear and we got lucky, the location was perfect. Beautiful neighborhood with amazing views of the lake and mountains. Convenient to drive to restaurants, shops and snow.

Manager Response: Great to hear that you enjoyed the Lakefront Raccoon's Nest. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your views. It's a favorite spot for many, all year round. If you desire an awesome lakefront spot, make sure to come back this summer, or Spring, for a gorgeous spot on the lake.

Great Spot! Awesome Lakefront Access and views!
Our family an awesome stay at the Lakefront Raccoon's Nest. We booked this cabin because we wanted to be ON the lake, with a dock and we were indeed. The cabin is cute and fit our family well. We loved having the extra Master Suite that is separate from the house, perfect for the In Laws! We will be back!
