I would have considered it swanky in the '80's, but now it needs a refresh. There is no air conditioning, but we didn't really need it. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but the wear and tear of daily use shows, in spite of the excellent efforts of a really good staff. Our microwave broke and the building engineer was... More

Service at check in was awesome! Room was clean and a little cramped, no table to play a board game. just 4 stools at the counter to eat. Cramped kitchen but has all the essentials. Wifi was horrible and I was only on the 2nd floor. None of the 4 in my party were able to connect even inside the... More

We went up to Big Bear for the Memorial Weekend. This place is nothing fancy, but just a place for a quick weekend get away. Our first impression wasn't so great. It looks like an old apartment complex and kind of weird looking. The office is in a room that is kind of dark, where is also their activity room... More

We stayed here the end of April/beginning of May. What I liked most about Snow Lake: Our suite (207) was very, very clean, spacious; 20-25 minutes stroll to the village; the staff was friendly and informative; we arrived quite late and Nicholas was there to greet us. Thank you! What wasn't the greatest: Parking - the best spots are across... More

The condo had a 1970 decor - with a mountain theme--- The kitchen has laminate counters, all appliances expected and full refrigerator. The stove is gas with an oven and has microwave above the stove.. the utensils are stainless steel rather... More

My family and I just returned from our short getaway to Big Bear Lake for skiing/snowboarding and we're very pleased with our stay at the Snow Lake Lodge. We booked a great weeknight deal through their website. It was SO good, that we even booked 2 rooms. These rooms were pretty spacious and offered many nice amenities: close to ski... More

The room was clean and well-kept. Our heater worked well one night (though it was annoyingly loud) and did not work the next. There was a drunk man hanging out in the parking lot who fell over into our car. The staff was pleasant, but not particularly helpful when we asked for restaurant suggestions. We liked having fireplaces in both... More

Beautiful and comfortable log cabin style lodge. The rooms are always clean and decorated very nicely. The rooms have beautiful hand made quilts made on the premises by the owners. Each room has different things painted very tastefully on the walls and the level of detail and beauty are unmatched. Some rooms have a juccuzzi tub for relaxing after a... More

Did not realize that this was a timeshare operation and they rent to non owners in order to fill in the time. The timeshare owners get first dibs on the better rooms. The room we had was large, dark with absolutely no view except to a hall so we had to keep the blinds closed for any privacy,outdated and no... More

Yes, we do have two suites that have restricted views, due to the layout of the buildings. We have a strong mixture of feelings about the bar type dining setup, as opposed to the table settings. Many of our guests like the height, and the interaction the bar style dining provides. Then there are many guests that prefer the flexibility... More
