My husband and I have birthdays one day apart and we usually go away to celebrate. We decided to go to Big Bear and check on a cabin we had sold in 2010. We stayed at the Timberline Lodge for two nights in a small cabin perfect for two people. When we arrived I noticed that the bathtub had not... More

I've stayed in the cabins and in the "Castlewood Cottages" and they are both great for the $. I stay there at least once a year on snowboarding trips to Snow Summit / Bear Mtn. The rooms have tables, silverware, refrigerators, coffee makers, and VCRs. Grab a couple of free VHS tapes when you check in. The cottages cost a... More

This was the perfect place to stay with my family of 5, to include 3 children. They have a great playground, pool, and billiards for the kids, and we were able to BBQ right on sight while watching the kids have the time of their lives on the playground. Being able to cook and play where we stayed made our... More

Stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Our cabin had a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms with 3 queen beds. Awesome!! Great place to take kids and pets. Owner and staff very eager to please. Patio with BBQ and Fire Pit. Great Value. Definitely will go there again.

Everything in the cabin was dirty. The floor in the kitchen, the carpets in every room were coming apart and were black with dirt. The couch was filthy, and hard as a rock. The t.v stand was falling apart, and the t.v was from the 80's. The bed was so uncomfortable. The coils in the mattress were stabbing us in... More

I was looking for a place to stop for a night before heading camping on the Stanislaus River. I found Timberline online, the price was very good, and the rooms looked clean and well-kept. Check-in time was between 3 and 8 pm, so I called ahead to let them know we wouldn't arrive until 11pm. At 10:55 I got a... More

Okay - I've read the reviews below and I wonder at the logic skills of some of the reviewers. My sister and I found the last room in the entire town here last weekend and were so happy we did. The Timberline is one of the most affordable accommodations in Big Bear. The location is ideal, the units are reasonably... More

After the Inn Der Bach lost our reservation we found this place online. We were very grateful to have found a place to stay that allowed pets & had a full kitchen however once we saw where we were staying we wished we had looked longer. The floor didn't look like it had been vaccuumed, cobwebs hung in several corners,... More
