This was our second visit to Big Bear Frontier. Located right on the lake and very close to shops, and are big enough for all of your needs.The cabins are clean, comfortable, and pet friendly. We stayed in cabin 21 last Sept. and enjoyed our visit so much that we decided to go back this year. We have to say... More

Everything right; courteous, helpful staff, sparkling clean fully equipped rooms and close-in lakeside location provide the best experience, even at reasonable rates. We will be returning to Frontier Big Bear soon and often.

This was my first stop on my 4 day motorcyle ride in California. Shopping for value on a budget and ambience is a plus. This place was a great deal. My room in the lakeside lodge was comfy, roomy and had a HUGE fireplace. There was an old tube TV but who cares with a fireplace like that. Two queen... More

We have been going to these cabins since they were called the Frontier Lodge -- since the early 1990's. Each time we've brought along one or two dogs who love the rustic cabins and the easy access to the lake front beach. The grassy area in front of the cabins is a nice place to BBQ, relax and enjoy the... More

Last year we stayed at one of the lakeside rooms at Frontier. WOW what a great, secluded spot! We boated over to their dock and discovered their quaint, private beach upon arrival. Check in was maybe 5 mintues. They had some great amendities for my family to enjoy: outdoor sporting goods, pool table, games, etc. The end room has a... More

We stayed at these cabins on the Sunday of Labor Weekend. We booked through Expedia and paid £113. The cabin was small dark and cluttered. It needs a total refurb. I realise things need to be in keeping with the lovely area but it can be done in such a way as to offer a little more in the way... More

Mike at the Big Bear Frontier cabins and hotel made very effort to adapt to our last minute schdule changes. The cabins offer an affordable place to stay while enjoying a perfect get away - so close to San Diego! We like the ability to either eat in or at a restaurant

We were celebrating a 60th birthday and an anniversary and both of us being cyclists we decided to ride the ski lift up and ride down the mountain. We found the Big Bear Frontier online (and they accepted our little dog). The room was clean and comfortable in a nice woodsy setting right next to the lake. We had a... More

I tried booking online but wasn't quite sure of what I was doing (Still not that computer savvy). I called several times when I became flustered. Both Amy and Dave were very friendly, helpful, and patient. Next time I will just call them instead of trying to book online.
