About the Owner
Hey I'm Mike I co-host 10 cabins in Big bear and own 2 others! In 2014 I decided to buy a home in Big Bear to use for myself and to share with others. Because of my love for Big Bear and the homes I manage and the renters staying in them, In the last 3 years that has blown up to me now owning 2 cabins, Milo Bear and Roni's Retreat and managing 10 others all around Big Bear Lake.
I love the Red Sox, Hartford Whalers (Still miss them) and rescuing animals. I was looking for the perfect getaway home in the mountains and found Milo Bear cabin (named after my cat who passed away a few years ago) and in 2107 I bought Roni's Retreat (Named after Milo's sister who passed away a few years ago as well.)
I want to provide great, clean no hassle vacation get aways where they can bring all members of their family. (Dogs always welcome and no charge)
I am hoping to travel more so am willing to talk housing exchanges as well.

We provide no guarantees that we will be able to honor a different cancellation policy, but we will try to accommodate such requests whenever possible.

This includes the use of cigarettes, cigars, pipes, medical marijuana, weed and vapes or any other item that emits smoke or vapor of any kind. If you smoke on the deck and the smoke gets into the house you could also be charged. We ask that you do not smoke anywhere near the cabin. In addition, please be aware that Big Bear is in a fire danger zone so never throw any smoking materials over the deck or into the bushes.
Also, due to fire hazard, lighted candles are NOT allowed anywhere on the Property.

PETS are permitted in rental units only with prior approval. Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up any/all pet refuse and hair. All pets must be up-to-date on rabies vaccinations and all other vaccinations. Heartworm prevention is highly recommended. All pets are to be treated with Advantage or similar topical flea and tick repellent three (3) days prior to arrival if not already on meds. Fleas and ticks are very rampant in this area and can cause harmful/fatal illness to humans and pets. All items above are the sole responsibility of the pet owner. The cabin owners assume no responsibility for illness or injury that humans or pets may incur while on the premises. dogs may NOT be left outside alone, this is the mountains and there are wild animals such as coyotes and bears – so we are adamant, never leave the dog unattended outside for long periods of time and ALWAYS walk your dog on a leash. This is important for the protection of your pet. Coyotes are indigenous to the area around Big Bear Lake. It is recommended that you be very vigilant when walking your dog from dusk to dawn. Coyotes are primarily active at night, but are also spotted during the day. Dusk is particularly active time for them. They also often travel in packs and although they rarely attack a dog on leash, it has happened. The best prevention is to keep your dog on a leash, close to you and be aware of your surroundings. We are not responsible for any injuries to any of your pets caused by wild animals, nor are we responsible for any pet allergies you may experience due to pets previously staying in home. As set forth above, please be aware that there are many wild animals in Big Bear such as raccoons, lizards and ground squirrels. Please be respectful of them and do your best to be sure your pet does not attack these animals.
DAMAGE: You will be completely responsible for any and all damage equal to or above the damage deposit whether accidental or due to renters negligence. If damage deposit cannot be collected on the portal the renter booked, the remaining will be collected thru this agreement.
DISHES: Please clean all soiled dishes and put back in shelves before checkout. There is a $25 charge if dishes are not cleaned and put away at the end of your stay. This includes clean dishes left in the dishwasher. All dishes must be put away.
SPA/ HOT TUB: No foreign substances are permitted in the hot tub. This includes bubble bath, bath oils, bath salts, cleaning fluids, cigarette butts and everything in between (you’d be surprised). Perfumes, lotions, deodorants, suntan lotion can disturb the PH balance of a spa so we ask that you please shower BEFORE using and we strongly recommend showering after as well due to the chlorine and other spa chemicals used to keep it sanitary. If the spa is found damaged due to foreign objects or the PH balance is off as a result of failure to follow the above rules and we are forced to drain and fill the spa- you will be charged $125. No children under the age of 12 permitted in hot tub at any time. When using the hot tub, remember there is a certain health risk associated with this facility. Use at your own risk. Our housekeepers drain, sanitize, refill and replenish chemicals in all tubs prior to your arrival; therefore, it may not be warm until you turn it on and this can take several hours to heat up. Always keep the floater in the tub as it has chemicals that keep the spa clean during your stay. DO NOT STAND ON THE HOT TUB COVERS. Hot tub covers are for insulation purposes only and are not designed to support a person or persons. If they break due to your activities, you will be charged for replacement. Remember when not using the hot tub please leave cover on and lock it. This will keep the hot tub warm and prevent anything from getting into the hot tub when not in use.
Important Note When Using Hot Tub During Winter - You must clean the hot tub cover from any ice and snow before opening it. Do not use a shovel or any sharp objects to clean off ice and snow from the hot tub cover as this could damage the cover. Lifting cover with snow or ice on it can cause damage to cover which can result in up to $500 to repair. If you do break cover the hot tub cover as a result of failure to follow these rules, you will be responsible for any and all damage.
Big Bear is in the mountains and sometimes bugs get into the cabin: ants, spiders- etc. Due to the nature of Big Bear, finding bugs in the cabin or on the deck is not grounds for cancellation. We of course will send out someone immediately if there are any serious issues with insects at the Property.

NO DAILY HOUSEKEEPING SERVICE: While linens and bath towels are included in the unit, daily maid service is not included in the rental rate. However, it is available at an additional rate. We do not permit towels or linens to be taken from the units.
