Why Dan Wagner chose Richfield

We fell in love with Big Bear Cottage the first time we stayed there. It is the perfect combination of isolation and convenience.

Big Bear Cottage was perfect! Thank you Dan for being a thoughtful and gracious host. Your cabin is beautiful and we appreciated all the extra care you took to explain everything and provide wood, charcoal, etc. We had a lovely weekend. Your place is so peaceful and quiet - it was the perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary, and get away from it all. I can't say enough good things - we'd love to come back!

Beautiful, clean cabin.

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at this cabin. It was exactly what it was described to be. We loved relaxing in the hot tub and building fires in the fire pit. It was a nice break from everyday life (including very limited cell phone use). Our only issue was that the heater wasn’t working and wasn’t able to be fixed during our stay. They did provide a space heater to help out.

Dan thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this for a ladies' weekend and were blown away by all the amenities. Mind you, we're used to camping, so this was a HUGE upgrade for us. Dan provided firewood and kindling for the fire pit, spa robes for the hot tub, candles (!!) inside & out, coffee for the Keurig machine and charcoal for the grill. The place was very clean and new, but still had that great wood cabin smell. It was quiet, private and a perfect location for relaxing and catching up. We'll absolutely be back.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed in this cabin about a month ago for our honeymoon! We stayed five nights. Dan was SO accommodating! He had everything stocked for us - firewood, towels, bed sheets, toilet paper, etc. The hot tub was awesome as well! We really enjoyed our stay! The cabin was perfect size for us, but with the loft it would also be perfect size for a family. The cabin is perfectly secluded and we loved being away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. I had read a review on here that mentioned something about no cell reception. This made me nervous, I wanted to be able to get in touch with family in case of emergency. Once we got to the cabin, I tried sending text messages and I can assure you, there are several spots on the deck that you CAN get service. We have nothing but good things to say about this cabin, and we really hope to return for our one year anniversary!

Big thanks to Dan Wagner for our time in this lovely little cabin. We came out to enjoy the hot tub and a little exclusion. You could probably fit four or five people (two in the master bedroom, two in the loft, one on the futon) but we just went with two and it was perfect for getting away from it all for a few days. There was a cable TV but no landline or WiFi, and even cell phone signal was spotty at best (as in, maybe now and then you could get it in certain spots on the deck, but I would not count on it) so expect to be unreachable. Also, we were wondering if we should bring our coffee pot, but you don't need to as Dan has a Keurig and about 30 K-cup pods. There's a nice little grill (charcoal is included) and a firepit (a little wood is included but if you use it a bunch, you may have to split a little yourself.) The view is great and the stars are beautiful. We didn't see anything more exciting than squirrels, but I think maybe you could find some wildlife on a little hike. We'll definitely be back if it's still available next year, if not, we'll be checking out the sister cabin down the path.
