WILD BURRO - HIKING, BIKING, LAKE Big Bear City
"We watched the horses run and play from the living room and a herd of wild burrows stroll by in the distance. We really felt like we got away this weekend and yet, it was a quick trip into town and the lake. We will definitely be back!" Steven, November 2013
Get away from it all in this Newly Remodeled cabin with amazing VIEWS of the surrounding Big Bear Mountains, Ski Slopes and Valley. Watch horses run, wild donkeys roam in the distance and clouds soar through the sky. Step outside for beautiful hiking trails and only 5 minutes to the lake!
Step into the outdoors in this newer home with hints of the outdoors, within. Enjoy Pine Logs, Vaulted Ceilings, Bright Sunlight throughout, Natural Stonework throughout, Fireplaces, Skylights and plenty of windows with views in this BRIGHT, open and spacious floor plan in this 2 level house with 3 bedrooms upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs with a Game room on the lower level.
Just a quick drive to the lake, the slopes and to the BIG BEAR VILLAGE and yet located in a peaceful setting where wild donkeys might roam around somewhere off in the distance, if you are so lucky to see them. (Not to worry, they are more afraid of us than we are of them, so they won't even think about coming close to people.) Watch the clouds stroll by, feel the breeze, smell the fresh air, this Ranch is a definite getaway from it all yet just a few minutes to the SKI SLOPES and the VILLAGE.
KITCHEN / GREAT ROOM with newer appliances, Cook in a bright and spacious kitchen with beautiful Indian Granite counter tops and a sky light setting with windows throughout. Wonderfully social cooking area, meaning that you can face your friends while cooking (rather than a wall :) as they sit across from you. Spacious kitchen, because we know that everyone ends up in the kitchen at a gathering. AND this kitchen opens to a spacious dining room with seating for 3 at the BAR and additional seating for 6 at the table and a nook for 3.

Manager Response: So glad to hear that everything was GREAT, amazing and perfect for your family! This house is a bright and sunny house and it is beautiful to awaken early and watch the wild life begin their day (roaming donkeys, coyotes, bunnies and birds.)
Manager Response: We apprecaite your feedback of the Wild Burro Cabin. This is a very well loved cabin by many and we are pleased that you too loved the views, the size of the house that sleeps up to 15 ppl and the wonderful Master bedroom with the rock tub and more. It appears that your reservation was during some very challenging weather and we do suggest having an SUV during the Winter months to easily access the short gravel road that leads to this cabin. We have put curtains on many of the bedrooms since previous feedback has requested that and we will certainly identify which bedrooms are missing more curtains as we understand that sleeping in is a nice luxury on vacation. The entire top level of the cabin has been updated recently, in the past few years with a brand new upgraded kitchen, living room, dining room and bedrooms. We do have a variety of cabins for your next stay, if you desire something different. Thank you again for your feedback.
Manager Response: Thank you Paola, for your 5 star review of the Wild Burro! So happy that you found this to be "the best!" and very clean, beautiful, quiet and relaxing. We look foward to your return!!
Thank God we had trucks and big cars to go over such rocky areas. Would definitely keep all the pretty cars at home and bring out the bad ones who don’t mind getting hurt or dirty!
Overall, everything was beautiful!
Manager Response: Thank you for your feedback. We agree that this is a great spot for groups that like a little space and yes, it has amazing views. Air conditioning in Big Bear is a rare find, so I apologize that you were too hot during the day. We have had a few hot spells recently, but the majority of the year is pleasant. We will make sure to address the outside railing ASAP. Thank you!
Manager Response: So glad that you had an amazing time with your family and that you look forward to returning! You visited the Wild Burro at the time of one of our biggest snow storms and I have to say, most every cabin was difficult to get to. This cabin does require a little more of a 4 wheel drive during heavy snow storms, but we do require that for all of our cabins during the winter months. Glad that you enjoyed the views!
Do note however, that if you are staying with a group of adults, the bedroom with the full size bed is a lofted bed.
We take a trip to Big Bear once a year and will more than likely search this cabin out again.
Manager Response: So glad you had a great time! Thank you for your hand written not letting us know what a wonderful time you all had. Welcome back soon!
Manager Response: So glad that you enjoyed this wonderful spot!
Our meal cooking took place in the kitchen and in the afternoon/evening we barbecued on the grill. Propane grill was little low on the burners but the propane tank was fill. Could be it was too cold around 5pm. The charcoal grill worked out fine. Later that evening we dipped in the jacuzzi. It was relaxing and warm. You can't go wrong with this location especially when you have a Jeep.
Our overall experience was great next year definitely we're coming back!
Manager Response: The Wild Burrow is an awesome spot and it sounds like you used most of the amenities that were offered. YES! This one is full of amenities.
Manager Response: So glad that you enjoyed the Wild Burro! Yes, this cabin is not on the lake and we advertise this to be in Big Bear City, just 5 miles from the lake and a quick drive to everything. We can assure you that our comforters are clean and washed regularly. We take great pride in implementing great procedures to ensure cleanliness for all of our cabins. Welcome back soon.
The rooms have plenty of space, are well furnished, and the overall look of the cabin makes it a memorable place to be.
Definitely go to this cabin if you are considering a stay in Big Bear.
House is perfect for a big group.
