Great cabin in Sugarloaf

We stayed at Green Gable Cottage over the last weekend and really enjoyed it. Cottage is very clean and a nice size. My grand kids loved the decorations - bear lamps and especially the "salmon" drawer and cabinet pulls. It's very homey and comfortable. John (owner) is easy to work with and I would recommend staying at Green Gable if you are looking for a cabin in the area. We will definitely stay again when we go back up to Big Bear.

Great time at the Green Gable Cottage

We enjoyed our stay at the Green Gable Cottage. This was our 4th time back and for sure will be back next year! Your home was nice and clean as always and had everything we needed for our stay. From the cozy rooms, the games and the kitchen all were great. We even got a few inches of snow today. Great family vacation. Thank you so much and we will be back again.

First of all the location of this cabin is a big plus. Tucked away in an out of the way residential neighborhood, you can enjoy the benefit of peace and quiet instead of traffic. The four of us all enjoyed the size layout and decor of the inside. They provided just about everything you could ask for. It's a bit more of a drive to the shops in downtown but isn't that part of "getting away?". The price was very affordable and the consensus of our party was that we needed to come back here again. Another nice thing is it's proximity to Highway 38 because it was a breeze to get home, plus the drive alone makes it worth it. I had never taken that route before but if I'm going to Big Bear then that's gonna be my choice. 5 stars for sure!

Green Gable Cottage

My weekend stay at the cottage was a most enjoyable experience. I have never felt more at home while being away from home. The cottage is richly decorated in country/cabin style, with so much attention to detail. Every room is beautifully decorated and impressively neat and clean. The master bedroom looks out onto the porch and nearby trees. In the evening a heavenly cooling breeze comes in through the patio door. The owners are very gracious in extending their lovely cabin to guests. I will definitely be a return guest. Ute

Memories in the making.

As always GGC is great. We enjoy our stay here. This year was challenging due to child with ear infection. Ended up in ER & another child with tooth ache. Dr. Noble was great with my son. Not quite the family vacation we planned, but memories made!

Nice retreat away from the city life

Our family had a wonderful time at the Green Gable Cottage this past weekend. The cabin is very clean and has lots of amenities. Also, we were only 10 minutes from Snow Summit where the adults can ski and the kids can go tubing at the new Grizzly Tubing Park on the slopes. The owners of the cabin are very quick to respond to questions and are very pleasant to deal with.

Very Lovable Cabin!

Everybody loved the cabin. There were 7 of us, plenty of room for everybody. The cabin is spacious, clean, very cozy and thoughtfully decorated. Everything worked, we had everything we needed. The instructions were clear and detailed. Easy drive to the slopes. We had a lot of fun skiing and just experiencing the mountains and the forest. Thank you John for renting this cabin to us. Very reasonable price.

We have stayed here a few times. This cabin is cute, fresh, cozy & clean. My boys love it. The owners have legos, cards, chess, internet for guests. I feel that a great deal of thought went into decorating & caring for this cabin has been done throughout the years. It is a great area for familes with sugarloaf park close (1mile or less) by skateboard park, basketball court, playarea. I love staying at Green Gables Cottage. It has such a happy vibe/aura.

The details that John had in the cabin were great I.e. lanterns, beautiful coffee mugs, wine glasses, Zip lock bags, sheets, extra blankets, Lego toys, dvd's, candles and lets not forget the step by step instructions for the use of the dvd player lol..etc. Btw the fireplace is great.
