I had a problem with the new television in the room and the television couldn't be fixed. The staff assisted me in moving me to another cabin. The room was comfortable and clean. Staff was accommodating and helpful. The cabins are close to the lake and to the village. I am looking forward to staying there again soon.

Victoria, I am so sorry that the T.V. did not work properly. Thank you for being so gracious and moving to another cabin that had a working T.V. It was very nice speaking to you in the morning before check out. Looking forward to seeing you again. Laura More

Ok. This is a cabin. In the mountains. It is not a 5 star resort. But is was cute, relaxing and comfortable. We had a small studio, just right for 1 or 2 people.It had a mini kitchen with all the tools.The best part was a large balcony overlooking the lake. Slept with the windows open! The smoke alarm battery... More

It is wonderful that you had a relaxing, comfortable stay and could enjoy the nearby Big Bear Lake. The early mornings and evenings are so relaxing because of the pretty grounds, the lovely lake and the quiet and stillness of it all. We hope you will come back soon, enjoy the cooler weather up here, and spend time with us.... More

We stayed in a cozy cabin with a fireplace, mini kitchen (range, micro, frig, and sink) and a little private deck, complete with patio furniture. Room and bath were clean. Bed was comfy. Grounds are nicely kept. All in all it was good deal all around. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Originally, I had booked the hotel section of the Big Bear Frontier. I was a little cautious in booking a cabin, as I read some fo the recent reviews. From working in the hotel industry, I thought that the hotel section would be the right choice. When I checked in, the very pleasant front desk people advised me that I... More

It was great to read your review, especially coming from someone who knows and is in the business. You are so right when you say, "remember where you are", and 5 star amenities wasn't the what the hotel advertised. I am so glad you were upgraded and your tip is exactly right. We love to if we can, and it... More

While the grounds are very well cared for; the two cabins we stayed in were less than satisfactory for our needs. The interior amentities were in dire need of repair, or replacement!

I paid $60/night for a double queen bed room in the "hotel" portion in the back by the lake. It was wonderful. The room was large, clean, and nicely appointed. It came with a fridge, microwave, and fireplace. They also have little cabins you can rent in the middle and front area of the property (front relative to the main... More

We shared a cabin with cousins and had a very comfortable stay. The cabin is well-equipped with plenty of seating, bedding, towels etc. The heating system is efficient, it was very cold at nights. The complex is well-situated near the lake and we enjoyed eating at the tables set out on the landing. The cost was very reasonable, considering the... More

This resort might have potential to be a lovely resort, due to it's location, however, the cottages are old and VERY DIRTY. We left because the kids had bites on them, everyone was itchy either from FLEAS and/or BED BUGS, we also encountered ANTS.

It is with great concern and dissappointment that we get your review. Because of our altitude, fleas or bed bugs do not inhabit Big Bear, however, we can have ants. Every hotel, motel, cabin, and home can have ants at during different times in Big Bear. Usually when they are looking for food and there is snow on the ground,... More
