Bathrooms were... More

A second stay at BigBear, first time over Xmas in a glamping pod and booked a second time for the New Year, what made us go back? The welcoming hospitality from Mark and the lovely Racheal. Nothing is too much and they cater for all needs (for those realists on the planet) and there warm reception after a day out... More

We stayed in one of the camping pods just for 1 night, but was everything we hoped for. With heating and electricity this is luxurious camping! We booked breakfast in the lodge the following morning cooked by Rachel , was amazing!! Full English at it's best. Will be back!

The Lodge is fabulous. It was a bit chilly when we arrived but we soon got the fire roaring and it was fine. The Lodge has three bedrooms all Ensuite with Wet Rooms. They are quite small rooms but have everything you need and the beds are comfy. We stayed here with a couple of friends and the third room... More

Stumbled across Big Bear Lodge on LateRooms.com as I was looking for somewhere to stay for one night while in the area on business. Wow what a fabulous find. I stay away a lot on business and I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere which made me feel so immediately and totally at home. The Lodge is just like... More

Just returned from a wonderful weekend away at Big Bear Lodge. We stayed in the lodge -in the Jasper room though all rooms looked equally lovely. The lodge really feels like you are tucked away in some remote part of Canada - it's so tranquil and chilled out and the decor is fabulous. I didn't feel like I was staying... More

We stayed in the room attached to the house. It was comfortable, but more importantly was the warmth and supportive welcome we received from our hosts Mark and Rachel who served us our delicious breakfasts. We were able to use the lounge facilities of the lodge which gave us the opportunity to relax and socialise with other guests. Additionally Mark... More
