3/5 Okay

Property Amenities Not as Advertised
The property we booked explicitly listed hot tub/jacuzzi in the room. We wanted this room as part of our recovery from long days of skiing at Big Bear. Well you can imagine our disappointment when we checked into our room and saw there was no hot tub/jacuzzi in the room. When I reached out to the property manager she claimed we actually booked through Expedia and we didn't book a room with a hot tub/jacuzzi. I'm still unsure why she believed this property was booked through Expedia as I had provided her with a variety of records showing we booked through VRBO and the amenities that were to be included in this property. My wife then started looking through the VRBO reviews and found we weren't the first people in which this incident had occurred...which we also shared with the property manager. At the end of a long back and forth with this property manager (Kathy), she apologized for the misunderstanding and offered to provide us a discount and her assurance we would get a nicer cabin on our next reservation. She was really sweet to make us this offer and she seemed to be legitimately surprised (and confused) by the fact we booked through VRBO (she had never heard of the website). All that said I would say it's unlikely we will book this property again. In addition to the lack of hot tub the bed was uncomfortable and the fridge was leaking. I would recommend anybody considering booking this property to be very cautious about what is listed on this website vs what you actually get.

It was a very lovely cabin and I just loved how cozy I felt I was definitely relaxing. I like to every car has an assigned parking spot and our cars are right next to the cabin. There is no AC however it is not needed because it’s really fresh outside.

We stayed here in mid-July to celebrate my husband's birthday. We figured a mini-cabin in the woods was one of the best ways to still travel while staying relatively safe during the pandemic, and we were (I think) right. There are no hallways to walk down or lobbies to congregate in, everything is your own that needs to be. We really enjoyed our stay here, and I think we would have under normal circumstances as well, but I really cannot recommend this place enough during the pandemic. The cabins are adorable, I loved the fireplace and the hot tub. It's a little bit of a hike to get to the Village, but we did it most days on foot anyway. All in all, we were very happy with our stay at Sleepy Forest Cottages.
