Thank you to Doria and Big Bear Escapes for saving our Christmas!  With
our oldest of two children away in the army, we were not looking forward
to spending a Christmas at home without him.  We decided to rent
Grizzly Getaway and escape to the mountains with grandma and my youngest
son.  We even took our two Yorkies!  The cabin was beautifully
decorated and with three bedrooms, the four of us had plenty of space. 
My 13 year old built a snowman, took snowboard lessons, and relaxed in
the spa.  The dogs enjoyed their walks and we all had fun playing games
by the fire.  We even roasted marshmallows!  We were delighted to find a
small tree with lights in the living room.  We had brought some small
decorations and expected to have to buy a Christmas tree, but there was
no need.  Our Christmas was perfect, with the exception of the fact that
we were missing our older son.  Big Bear Escapes even provided us with a
ham and champaign for our Christmas dinner!  The cabin was so well
supplied with soap, shampoos, and other necessities, that vertically the
only groceries we had to purchase was our food.  The kitchen was
stocked with plenty of cooking supplies.  Everything was clean and
comfortable.  We really enjoyed the gift basket that we were given.  It
was chockfull of goodies, even something for the dogs!  So many treats
& goodies in fact, that we were able to package up some of them to
send to NY to our soldier, who was experiencing his first Christmas
alone.  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grizzly Getaway!!!  We highly
recommend it and Big Bear Escapes.  We couldn’t have asked for better
service or accommodations and we will definitely rent through them in
the future!
