I think some of my confusion came from an earlier post by tj, where he says there is a large house sized rock blocking the view from 103. I could see cars on Google Earth but not a house sized rock between 103 and the window so I was  ??? ?  So either tj was referring to 101 or the cabins have been renumbered. I do see the large rock between 102 and 101 and it does appear to block the view of the basin window from 101.

Ah.... yep, sorry. My mistake. The cabin that does NOT have a direct view of The Window is #101.

I dug back to my original trip report:

http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/members-only-photos-and-reports/third-time%27s-a-charm-trip-report-%28sept-5-8%29/

So, 101 is really nice due to the heavy shade it gets in the late afternoon. Keep that in mind if you go in the summer. There's no AC.

If you walk out the back door of 101 (heading north), take a left turn and walk up to the boulder that sits parked between 101 & 102, and then climb that boulder (not difficult), the views from the top are really nice and you see the Window in its full glory.

I remember when they put the sat tv in. I was not happy... they closed the north window on the cable and I couldn't open the window for cross ventilation. I don't go to BiBe to watch a stupid television and in the summer that cross breeze through the window is necessary.


I've stayed there a few times. It's a nice cabin... tad pricey though

I'm guessing that it can only be reserved by phone, as it didn't show up as available for any of the nights of the dates listed on https://reservations.foreverresorts.com/ReservationCalendar.do?propertyKey=73#

Or maybe I should have read the disclaimer.  :icon_rolleyes:

I always just call the front desk and ask if it is available. I do that for any reservation.
