Our experience with Black Forest Lodge was the most terrible experience we ever had. The grounds were cluttered with the ice machine outside and scuzzy. As for the room, it smelled. The TV didn't work properly. They turned off the heat for the summer, even though at night it was still 55 degrees. There was no security, not even a... More

My husband and I visited with our dogs memorial weekend, we stayed here before but at the motel part not a cabin and it was pretty nice so we decided this time to get a cabin. Our cabin came with a small kitchenette and a Jacuzzi tub. When we got to the cabin first thing we noticed was holy cow... More

This place is great! If you want to rest and chillout from the city rush THIS IS IT! Lodges are cozy and clean, well equipped and comfortable. Yes they are little bit old and have the "cottage" smell but we dont care. Cottages have their own kitchen with all equipment so you can cook meals and dont have to go... More

Booked a suite at Black Forest the night before we headed out to Big Bear. We were nervous after reading other reviews but the price was very reasonable and it was close to the main village. When we arrived we were upgrade to a cottage, we were pleasantly surprised. The cottages stand alone so we didn't share any walls. It... More

The sauna was right next to the fireplace and the decor was so cute. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well, i... More

To tell you the truth, I booked this motel before I ever read any of the reviews. Then I read the reviews and my stomach dropped, but it was too late to get a refund. So we went and it was really really great! I don't know what everyone who is complaining about this place is complaining about. Our room... More

First time in Big Bear and stayed in Gordon Chalet A. Very homely and cute. Staff really friendly. Into the evening my children started saying how theyve seen figures upstairs and the feeling of something following and watching them. Starting hearing stomps coming from next door along with sound of someone running down the stairs. No one was staying in... More
