Just returned home to Mexico after an excellent one week stay in a 3 bedroom mountain cabin rental at Golden Bear Cottages Resort. This is really a nice place. Imagine a restored historic cabin built in the very early 1900's when all that was in Big Bear Lake were bears, mountain lions and other wildlife. That is exactly what we... More

I brought my two young children on an unexpected road trip to Big Bear. After visiting Golden Bear cottages several years ago, I decided to stop in and see if they happen to have a cottage available. Don, the owner was very sweet and as lick would have it, there was one opening the moment we stepped in through the... More

We had an amazing time at this facility. Our family from out of town and state rented cabins and stayed for the weekend, we actually had our wedding planned there since January. The wedding was perfect, the rooms were great. The staff was all wonderful, especially Lisa the manager! I couldn't have been any happier with our wedding as well... More

Horrible. The filthiest place I have ever seen. They charged us a $250 deposit, and when we went in the cabin to, it was filthy. The BBQ was broken. It was horribly run down. The beds were horrible. The 3 bedroom was actually a two bedroom with a small closet off to the side of one bedroom. The Jacuzzi tub... More

I am sorry that this lady did not have a good time at our lodge.

We are very clear in our... More
