In other locations, this would seem fairly overpriced, but for Bridgeport where everything seems to cost more than it should, this is not bad. We had a small cabin without an inch to spare to move around in, but perhaps the most comfortable bed of any hotel or timeshare we've ever been to anywhere. It was amusing that there was... More

Big Meadow Lodge had rates about 25% less than that of other hotels along 395. We saw the mixed reviews both on here and Trivago, so we were a bit hesitant. Only one room was left, so we decided to go for it. We were pleasantly surprised. This isn't luxury and the rooms are tiny, but the room was clean,... More

Pros. Very clean, nice looking, comfortable beds, close to hot springs. Cons. Extreme noise from CA395, fan that suppose to cool the room (no air-conditioning) is on timer so every time you come back it is very hot and it take very long time to cool it, very small room (beds and 1 ft around them), unstaffed in the evening....

Lovely cute apartment set in beautiful peaceful location. Free broadband which is great so we could keep in contact with friends and family back at home. Very good value for money. Welcoming check in and no problem booking in late as we were travelling from Las Vegas so this was a requirement. We stayed here so that we could visit... More

We arrived here in Big Meadow Lodge quite late in the evening. The office was closed but they left an envelope outside with all the paperwork with my name on it.We stayed here for a night to go to Mono Lake and check out next morning. The cabin was great-pretty basic and clean, nice comfy bed. Shower-very small. The view... More

Big Meadow Loge was a pleasant surprise, it was a lot smaller then we had expected but although basic the rooms had everything you needed and I had the best nights sleep I’d had in days. The views and the... More

Just returned from 4 days at Big Meadow lodge / Fish Camp. Ownership recently back in family hands. Really neat cabins and AMAZING views. VERY minimal accommodations but workable for Price. Owners are working to make upgrades, FIRST thing has to be A/C!! Rarely is Bridgeport hot, but, when it is, these cabins need lots of help cooling off. Clean... More
