When Choosing to Stay In a Private Home Please Take Note Of The Following:
Each home we offer on our program is privately owned and has it's own unique charm and ambiance. Renting a home is very different from cookie cutter rooms offered in a hotel, also different from the little cabins offered at area lodges. Their decor and amenities are based upon each owner. The pictures and details offered in our website are an accurate representation of each and are here to allow you to shop and compare to find what best suites your needs. Due to the lack of control we have in what the owners do at any given time, You should not find it surprising if you find some differences upon your arrival. If you find you have specific concerns please express them at the time of making your reservation and we will do our best to make sure your concerns are addressed.
WE ARE NOT A HOTEL:
Homes are more complex than a one room accommodation. We take pride in what we do and strive to make each home perfect for your stay. Although we are diligent in our care and maintenance, it would be reasonable to expect the possibility of unintentional unexpected malfunctions at any given time. However, should an issue of inconvenience arise while you are occupying the home we have 24 hrs. emergency service and will stay on the task until there has been a resolution. Sometimes services and parts are unavailable which can cause delays and lead to disappointment, this is especially true in hot tub cases. If this should occur it would not be reasonable to expect compensation for things beyond our control. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
Some of our cabins do offer this option. However, we do not guarantee usability or availability at any location. Often times systems in the area are down through no fault of anyones. If you experience difficulty please be aware that we have a computer in our office available to our guests who need to check on emails only! Cabins offering internet access do not have any additional fees added to their nightly rate for the convenience of this option and there will be no financial compensation for the lack of service.

CHECK-OUT: 11:00 A.M.

REQUESTED REFUNDS DUE TO NON-FUNCTIONING ITEMS:
We strive to ensure proper functioning of all appliances at all times. However, it would not be unusual to expect issues to arise without warning or in the case of hot tubs, parts not being readily available to repair units in a timely manner. Once we are aware of any discrepancy we stay on task to help minimize any inconvenience.
Rental rates do not have an up-charge built into a nightly rate for the use of hot tubs, We will not offer any compensation for issues arising beyond our control.
*Check-In is 4 p.m. on the day of arrival

We will not be held responsible for any delays or inconveniences caused by inclement weather. We can not be held responsible for any circumstances beyond our control including but not limited to non functional hot tubs. For your convenience we have provided information on our web site and in our rental agreements to help prepare you ahead of time to get the most up to date current information on road conditions. There are three (3) access roads into Big Bear. In the event that all three (3) roads are closed at the same time by highway authorities, you must report the problem to Affordable Accommodations. If all (3) access roads are closed at the same time we will gladly issue you a "Rain Check" based on a prorated dollar amount for the duration of time that all three (3) roads were closed, Road closure times will be verified with authorities, Unless the roads are closed for your entire stay you will be expected to utilize your remaining time.
*DURING EXCEPTIONALLY HEAVY SNOW CONDITIONS, Please Take Note of the Following: It would not be unusual to experience the commercial snow plowers to be unoperational or delayed, therefore, it would be normal to find your parking area to have more snow than you would expect. Each property is equipped with snow shovels for your convenience. Once weather permits the commercial plowers will resume their scheduled route. We highly advise removing your vehicle if you see the plower so that your parking area can be cleared for your convenience.
FIRES IN OUR MOUNTAIN REGION:
You will be expected to utilize the time you have committed to unless authorities have declared the area unaccessible. With most past fires there have been no inconveniences or disruptions to our staying guests. If you have any questions or concerns please call our office prior to departing from home. Having to issue a "rain check" based upon the Big Bear Community being closed to fire danger is not a common occurance and will be held to the same policies as road closures for inclement weather.
*Rain Checks are good for 1 year from the date of issue. They are to be used for the same cabin that initial reservation was made for. Dates can differ, If there is a difference in cost the renter will be expected to pay the difference. There will be no refund of any dollar amount if renter decides to use the certificate during a different season. Reservations are based on availability at time of request, Rain Checks do not gaurantee a reservation. A Rain Check cannot be used for any holiday dates. It is the responsibility of the renter to acquire additional reservation dates as well as be responsible towards the expiration date of the voucher, not Affordable Accommodations. All reservations secured using a rain check will be expected to pay a regular deposit at time of reservation. In addition, all rain check reservations will be subject to all provisions as set forth in our rental agreement and policies.
*Stay within the limit of guests allowed overnight for rental. Due to health and safety issues we take this very seriously!
*Respect the home and its contents
We happily prepare all our homes for your convenience and pleasure as well as clean after you depart. The cleaning we provide is expected to be "Normal" wear & tear cleaning, anything above and beyond will be deducted out of your security deposit, as well as any damage or missing items. If there is anything that goes over and above what security deposit was taken you will be expected to pay for any and all expenses you are responsible for.

Note: Although we gladly offer mid-week discounts we do charge a Friday and Saturday night rate on all advance reservations starting on a Saturday or Thursday with a Saturday departure!
*We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
*Privately owned homes are unique and personal in their decor and amenities. That is part of the charm of a vacation rental over a room at a Hotel or Motel. However, personal decor items and amenities can be changed by the owner. We make every attempt to give a generally accurate description of each home. Due to the lack of control we have in what the owners do at any given time, You should not find it surprising if you find some differences upon your arrival.
*Big Bear is no exception when it comes to having little creatures such as bugs, spiders, and mice. We make every attempt to control these pests but they can be stubborn and reappear within days. If you have any problems with them while in the home, call and we'll attempt to minimize the problem. However, you should realize that they are part of a mountian environment and must be tolerated to some extent.
*Cleaning is a subject we take very seriously. We try hard to make every home reasonable for your arrival. Dust, especially in the spring is very difficult to control, many times reappearing within hours.
*We rely heavily on individual owners to maintain their own homes. We encourage the owners to make repairs as quickly as possible. That said, it would not be reasonable to expect every aspect of every home to be in perfect condition at all times. Sometimes an issue goes unoticed or reported and it is our guest that discovers a problem. Should this occur we will do whatever we can to alleviate the problem as soon as we possibly can. We only ask for your patience and understanding while the corrections are in process.
*As a guest it would not be unreasonable to expect to encounter situations such as those mentioned above when renting any vacation home.
*We take pride in our attention to detail and strive to make your vacation an exceptional one. If you notice anything upon arrival that you have questions about please notify our office by calling (909) 866-5678
*We will not be held responsible for circumstances beyond our control. Power failures are another part of life in the mountains. Once we have been alerted to a problem we will do our best to help minimize or alieveate the issue in a timely manner, we will not offer additional compensation for an inconvenience that was addressed expeditiously. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
* We have put a lot of care and consideration into creating our policies. Please be advised that we take them very seriously! They have been developed with the thought of our customers care as well as our homes. In order to continue to provide quality accommodations for everyone to enjoy year after year we will enforce any violation that may arise.
