Mighty Big Bear House Features

Once you arrive at our cabin, you will likely want to dive in and use some of our amazing amenities. Below are tips on how to use our house features and appliances safely and effectively. 


  • If the internet is not working, double-check that you are on the correct network.
  • If you still cannot connect, unplug the router for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. 
  • Still having issues? Give us a call for some additional support.


  • When the refrigerator goes from completely empty to being filled with a full load of groceries upon your arrival, it can take 24-48 hours to cool all of the groceries. This is especially true if you add room temperature goods, like sodas and beer.
  • To help speed up the process, try adding your water bottles and freezer friendly food to the freezer for 20-30 minutes to chill them before transferring them back to the refrigerator.
  • There is also another full-sized refrigerator downstairs in the kitchenette. Consider distributing your food and drinks across the two fridges to ensure that there’s enough airflow to circulate and chill the food.


  • Use dishwasher pods or liquid detergent in the dishwasher only. DO NOT use regular dishwashing soap in the dishwasher.


  • The washer and dryer are located in the closet next to the kitchenette downstairs. 
  • Do not stuff and overload the washing machine when using it. It may break the machine (and it doesn’t clean as well when it is too crowded to allow full movement).
  • Do not add laundry that is soiled with solids and/or large particles.
  • Only use laundry detergent intended for washing machines.
  • Clean out the dryer lint tray and discard all lint into the trash.

Heat & Air Conditioning

  • There are two temperature controls in the house, one on the main floor in the bedroom hallway and another downstairs in the bedroom hallway.
  • The normal house temperature is set at 69 degrees. To change the temperature, just press the up or down arrows to your desired target temperature.


  • The gas grill is located right outside the kitchen on the main level deck.
  • There is a fire extinguisher next to the grill, if needed.

Hot Tub

  • Call us if you have any questions regarding the operation of the hot tub. It is normally set to 100 degrees.
  • Keep the hot tub covered and locked when not in use. Do not sit or stand on the hot tub cover. A list of safety rules is posted next to the hot tub. Please read over these before entering the hot tub.
  • Maximum capacity is 4. Do not cause the hot tub to overflow as you will need to refill the hot tub with COLD water. If you do refill the tub, please DO NOT allow water to be sprayed on the walls or deck as it will cause damage to the wood cabin.
  • Do not twist the jet valves OFF. It should just be turned a half turn open or closed.
  • Use the colored hot tub towels provided, NOT the white bath towels.
  • Do not use any glassware near or in the hot tub.
  • Do not add any substances into the hot tub, such as dish soap and bath salts.
  • Rinse off before using the hot tub to avoid creating an oily film in the water. 
  • If you notice that the water is slightly discolored, has a brown film on top, and/or small black specs at the bottom, this is normal due to the minerals found in well water. We assure you the hot tub is clean and the chemicals are balanced. Prior to every guest’s arrival, we have the hot tub fully drained, cleaned, and sanitized and the chemicals replenished.
  • While the hot tub is routinely serviced, incidents sometimes occur. If you have any problems with the hot tub not working properly, please contact us ASAP so that we can have the problem resolved.

Gas Fireplace

  • The gas fireplace only operates from October to March.
  • Turn the knob to start the fireplace. Remember to turn it off when it’s not in use.
