Awesome place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we were looking for. It sits in a quiet cove with Big Bear boat ramp very close by. The covered boat dock came in handy since it rained one morning. The fishing was really good, we could see the house from where we were catching several catfish. And I have to mention all of the resident deer that kept us entertained while sitting on the deck. We will definitely be back. Thanks for the hospitality Rick!

Property was in a beautiful setting. Saw deer and blue herons every day. Boat dock was perfect for viewing the eclipse. House was very clean and well maintained. Rick was very friendly. I would definitely rent again.

Great spot and lovely hosts

  • 4 of 5

Very quiet and comfortable. Hosts are very nice and accommodating. Cottage is in a neighborhood so it's not completely private, but we didn't see anyone else for two whole days. Lots of room to spread out.

Great property for a quiet and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was as pictured and described. My brothers and I had a very nice stay here. Previous reviews are spot-on. Rick and Margaret have a very easy check-in and check-out process and made themselves available if we needed anything.

We took kayaks and launched from the property under the watch of the neighborhood deer. The large deck in the back was a great spot to hang out. We'd all go back to the property. Very comfortable.

Very Nice. Well kept and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend on the property with our 2 daughters. Rick was very accommodating. Electric was ran to the boat dock so batteries could be charged. House was clean and well kept. Water pressure in the showers was amazing. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend the property highly.
