“Island in the Sky” is a split-level vintage mountain ski chalet nestled among the pines and oaks of Big Bear just steps away from sledding in the winter or hiking trails in the summer. Surrounded by the serenity of the forest, this is a perfect location to commune with the sounds and scents of nature. Featuring vaulted ceilings in the great room, there you can drink a cup of cocoa while keeping warm in front of a rock fireplace on snowy winter nights. Perfect for couples and families; no pets.

Island in the Sky in Big Bear City was a cozy and enjoyable home during our stay over the weekend. We fit 6 adults and 1 infant (2 months old) comfortably in Lorren’s home. Even with 1 bathroom, everyone was able to clean-up and get ready with ease as we all had different shower…

Pros: The house is pretty and the living room area is nice. The location is fairly close to activities in the town. Cons: When we arrived at the house there was an overwhelming smell of smoke and there were already dirty dishes in the sink as well as some kind of bucket that w…

Response from Lorren:
First let me state that Caroline is being retaliatory in her review because she is being charged for carpet cleaning because one of the six guests smoked in the "Boat room." Let me address in the order critiqued: Overwhelming smell of smoke: Our home has an open fireplace, hence the smell that a fire has been burning there. Dirty dishes in the sink and dirty bucket: Not the case, my house cleaner would not leave anything that way. She values her job and is paid a working wage. Shower dirty and hair in it: She told the AirBnB rep (in an effort to get back her cleaning fee) that there was one black hair in the tub. I have that transcript. Who is not telling the truth now and trying to defame. Beds are uncomfortable: A matter of preference, I did not state they are feather-down, sealy posture-pedic. Light on porch is dim: In sub-zero temperatures the bulbs do go dim. I doubt with the temps anyone would want to be outside anyway right now, but we do have a string of bright blue Christmas lights, which light up enough for socializing and we have lights up and down the stairs. A lot of chores upon check-out: We ask that guests leave the house in the same condition that we give it to them in, we are not a hotel, this is our home. They were asked to leave the kitchen with no dirty dishes, remove any opened food from the fridge, strip the bed linens and leave by washer, place all dirty bath and kitchen towels IN washer, take out trash and lock doors when leaving. Standard for most AirBnBs. Money spent to stay in our resort home (not just a hotel room) was $83 per person. The rules are ALL online in our House Manual as well as being printed in a book in the house. When we state No Smoking, we mean No Smoking.
