Fantastic cabin rental experience in November

My experience with this company was fantastic. We found that a lot of other rental companies have additional trash and cleaning fees. We paid one flat fee plus tax, that's it. There was a $500 security deposit.A group of 10 of us stayed in the Bear's Den cabin. It was gorgeous and easily accommodated us.Everything was told to me up front. I called and asked questions before I booked online. I noticed there were some poor reviews of this service, but most of the people were saying that they weren't told everything online. Sure, perhaps it could be more clear, but I can't imagine booking something so expensive without doing research by calling the company ahead of time. I did, and I got all the answers I needed.Martha, the woman I was dealing with for my booking, was direct and answered all my questions clearly.I'd definitely use this guys again if I were looking in Idyllwild for another cabin.

Awesome house where great memories are made!

We've been to the Bear's Den a couple times and absolutely love this house! You will not be disappointed. It is so incredibly warm and cozy and very well suited for a large group. There are so many different areas for people to gather: sofas, love seats, tables with chairs... Plenty of room to all be together but spread out. If you go during the winter and there's snow, you'll love it because you don't need to leave the house to enjoy sledding and hiking. The kids can sled on the property all day long! Come in to warm up & sit by the fire, then head back out. No driving... I also love the fact that you can see deer and squirrels and birds around the property. Can't say enough good things about this place! Can't wait to go back. Martha is always so nice and helpful, too. She's the best! We've rented several places from her over the years and have never been disappointed.


I must say, first and foremost that working with Martha was a breath of fresh air. Her business excellance, attention to details and support made our process easy.The Cabin was amazing. We had a great time exploring and hiking. The location was perfect. We will highly recommend.Thanks MarthsGWC

Truly a home away from home.

As always, our all-too-short vacation in Idyllwild, was wonderful. And as always, the Bear's Den was so comfortable, and accommodated all of us so nicely. We love the well-equipped kitchen, having so many entertainment areas, the fireplace, the wildlife and outdoor spaces - I could go on and on. We appreciate the location: so quiet and peaceful, yet not too far to drive into town. We thank you for making the Bear's Den available. This was our fourth stay in the Bear's Den, and we hope to do it again. Thanks again for your excellent service and warm hospitality. It's always such a pleasure to work with you. Blessings, ~Bill & Diana Pyle~ Victorville, Ca

The Bear's Den

Just a quick note to say what a wonderful time we had at The Bear's Den! It was great getting together with my friends and we all loved it and didn't want to leave. All the ladies want to go back to this beautiful cabin. Deer came up in the backyard and were visible often. It was in the Fall when we were there and it was perfect. Would love to go up in the snow too. We cooked in and they had everything you would need to cook and eat utensil wise. Bring your own food and cook. I would like to thank Martha and her family for making everything go so smoothly.I would like to thank the owners for all of their wonderful charming additions to their beautifully located cabin.

What a pleasure to rent from somone that responds to our needs !

Have been using the Bear's Den each year, for over 5 years. It has never disappointed us. The cabin is very clean,the kitchen is well equipped, and the decor is outstanding. There is room to spread out. We enjoy traveling to the small town of Idyllwild, and we look forward to relaxing with family. Our family feels like it is their second home. Barbara B.

Awesome experience!

Eight of us girls went on a weekend trip up to Idyllwild to sew...we loved the cabin and the surroundings. The cabin is so beautiful I wish I could own something like this. It was quiet, we had a deer in our backyard along with squirrels, quail and some bluejays...took great photos! Very peaceful...would recommend this cabin to anyone, great family vacation rental with all the comforts of home. The only negative is that the cell phones don't work up there.

Relaxing & Serene Getaway

We were so impressed with the cleanliness of the cabin, the beauty of our surroundings, and all of the accomodating supplies within the cabin. We are already planning our next stay here! If you want a relaxing stay, with gorgeous views, and all the amenities of home -- this is the place for you! Our kids will never forget their memories here, and the many "explorations" they took in the back yard!

Thank you Angelo Great memories with the family are what make weekend trips so special.We appreciate your business and hope to see you again soon.

An awesome Girls' Getaway Place

We had an unbelievable stay at the Bear's Den. It was homey, comfortable, clean and way beyond our expectation. It was the perfect place for us girls to get away for the weekend from our busy lives. Martha was terrific. She was friendly and reassured us about the weather condition prior to our arrival. We all can't wait the next time to book here again. Thanks for making our stay at Bear's Den a memorable one for us all.

The Bear's Den Our Mountain Home away from Home

We had the most awesome time over the long President's holiday weekend! The Bear's Den felt like home the minute we stepped in. The home is furnished with lovely antiques and comfy furniture. The space was great for our family of 9 adults and 6 children. The owners have created a feast for the eyes both inside and outside "the Den". Our grandchildren loved spotting all the bird houses on the surrounding trees. The home is decorated for a family feel rather than a "renter" feel and great care has been taken in making every room special. The kitchen was furnished with every appliance, tool, and supply one might need to prepare a meal. All you need to bring is the food! We appreciated the beautifully made up beds and the sparkling white towels provided for our use. One tip we could supply to future guests is to make sure you have chains if the conditions are snowy. While the road is plowed to the cabin, it is top plowed only and ice may be left on the road top making for a slippery journey up a slight rise to the cabin. We called for assistance from the rental company and a plow was dispatched promptly for another pass on the road. With our newly purchased chains we were able make it to the cabin. Once again this would only apply in the snowiest conditions and a call to Martha would let you know if they are needed. We plan on visiting the Bear's Den every year, for many years to come!

The Bears Den is a very nice place

The Bears Den is a very nice place to stay and I would recommend it to others. My only issue was the fact that we had to dispose of our own trash.

Our family looks forward to staying at the Bear's Den all year.

We have been coming to the Bear's Den for the past 8 years and have loved every second of it. Each year is a little different in the number of our children who can join us, but what has stayed constant is the peace we experience being there and the great service we receive before, during and after our trip.

Relaxing the moment we arrived!

The Bear's Den is an all inclusive vacation location. We brought all our own food so as soon as we arrived, we had all the luxuries of home yet the peace and serenity of the mountains and the luxury of a spacious home with all the amenities you could ask for! Lots of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy their space. The kids loved the freedom to roam & explore around the property. Deer were waiting in the back for us when we arrived. Guaranteed to help you make some great family memories!
