Cabins need serious work. Really disappointing. Grounds were bad too. I've stayed here in the past and it was great but that was years ago. Very pricey for what you get. No way this place gets my money again until major overhaul occurs.

Below is what I wrote on the 2 Surveys that "Big Bear Vacations", the Company I booked through, sent me. I have given them 2 weeks to respond figuring that, at least if they responded to my concerns, I might not post this review. STILL WAITING ? Stayed at Shore Acres Lodge Sunrise #108 on 6/7-9. I understand camping and... More

I just read the other reviews and am surprised to see such unhappy campers. I admit this is a cabin in the woods.. and like i say in my review, do not expect anything fancy. But, also it is very expensive even with our coupon and we probably won't be back because of the price. ----------- We stayed in Lone... More

OK, the location is great. Been coming to Big Bear for over 20 years. Stayed in LakeFront 110. Haven't been in this cabin for abou 10 years . . . it looked like it hadn't been touched in that long. Dirty. Worn. Funky. Just yuck. The total price, including a crazy $115 cleaning fee, came to over $400 for ONE... More

I must add my vote to the "Terrible" end of the spectrum. If you are looking for "quaint" "rustic" or "nostalgic", you might be happy here. If you are looking for clean linens, enough interior light to read or use the bathroom mirror, sufficient electrical power to use any two appliances or lights at one time, or enough paved area...

My husband and I have been going to Big Bear for about 40 years. Since we hadn't been there for 9 years, we decided to go back and stay at Shore Acres as we had several times before. When we first tried to book a cabin, we were stunned at the price increase but we wanted a dock for our... More

Don't be fooled by the description and even some of the pics. We booked the 3 bedroom cabin, #100 and oh boy, what a complete joke this was. The website says that you can check in early if the place is ready. Well, we got to the office in town at 2:20 PM, 40 Mins before check in. We didn't... More

This review is a little overdue since we went there back in April over Easter weekend. We booked through the Big Bear Vacations website and I can honestly say that we will NEVER stay at this spot again. At first glance on the website the property looks super kitschy and outdoorsy but once you see it in person, it is... More

This was our first visit with Big Bear Lake and dont know where to go!!! We searched online and we found Shore Acre Lodge. At first we were so excited with the place but we got disappointed. Our first disappointment was upon entering the lodge, there were groups of people partying and drinking in the driveway and wont let us... More
