Perfect, Lovely, Cozy, Special!

  • 5 of 5

The Jackrabbit Ranch is SUCH a special place! We spent New Year's Eve weekend with a group of 22-24 and there was ample room for us all to be together, but also to go to our separate spaces (so many bedrooms and nooks and crannies). The house is cozy, but completely well-appointed (full kitchen, hotel-sample toiletries in the bathroom, individual thermostats in each room, etc) and decorated beautifully, and is not to far from all that Big Bear Lake has to offer. The owners are friendly and communicative, as is the property manager who helps you check in and check out. Can't recommend highly enough, and can't wait to return!

The Wedding I Always Wanted & More

  • 5 of 5

I had my wedding here last weekend & it was everything I ever hoped for & more. We used the big oak tree for our ceremony & the back outdoor area of the house for our reception...everyone was in awe of the property & we knew they would be. We got so many beautiful pics as there were photo ops around every corner. My husbands & my family stayed the weekend & there was plenty of space for all. It was so great to be able to have our wedding & bring our families together all in the same place. Not to mention how amazing the owners were & how great the caretaker was. The house & property are very well maintained & clean. We definitely made ever lasting memories here & cant wait to come back.

Private, Unique, Great Place for a Large Group!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 19 adults and a few teenagers and toddlers on our annual friends and family get together. We go to different places every year, bouncing between Big Bear and Palomar Mountain area. Our group has grown over the years and it's been more and more difficult to find places where each family can have a room of their own. What a find with Jackrabbit Ranch! Plenty of room to spread out. In fact, we didn't nearly take advantage of the entire acreage because we were hanging out in the kitchen the whole time eating, drinking and laughing. We organized a Olympics event (3-legged race, etc) in the open space directly behind the house and we had a blast. Smashed a few piñatas for some birthdays. So much room to be creative and the acreage and set up provided good privacy.

Our group loves to cook and we put the two kitchens to the test. I was so nice to have the "low and slow" posole, barbacoa, and prime rib cooking going on in the mess hall kitchen which freed up the main house kitchen for homemade pizza making, breakfasts, and other stuff. The kitchens were well appointed and in great working order. It was great to have two large refrigerators! We had them packed + coolers for beverages.

Random comments...TV's everywhere with Apple TV included, but we didn't use them much except for Sunday football and a few horror movies at night. Plenty of bathrooms. Tons of parking. Several large farmhouse tables to pull together for a big group. Guided horseback riding outfitter right next door, but we didn't take advantage. They have a trash/recycling service! No hauling nasty trash and bags of recycling in your car to the Big Bear waste facility. Rare for Big Bear rentals. Check in/check out was super easy. Easy bounce into the closest market for essentials.

Well done Gerd and Laurie! And thanks Janith for showing us around at check in!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

Although there were some setbacks (a shower out of order, no hot water in another shower) it was a great stay. The property is spacious and built with quality materials. The design is very welcoming. Overall we loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for pointing out both the good and the not-so-good. Just for the record, please let our property caretaker know about any issues with the property, so she can take immediate action. She let us know about the issues described at check-out, but by then it was too late to get the necessary repairs done during your stay. All is fixed now and we'd be pleased to welcome you again to prove it!

The property was just as the photos on the website depicted .

  • 5 of 5

The main house was beautifully decorated, very clean and had a large kitchen and living room to gather in. The beds were very comfortable and every bedroom had its own bathroom which was a definite plus. The kids loved the pool table, foosball table and all the wide open space to run around. The property was picturesque and every window had a beautiful view. We loved everything about this property and would definitely recommend it for any type of family gatherings.
