We stayed with three families of relatives at the Log Cabin and one of the cottages. Both were clean and had ample amenities. The log cabin can easily accommodate the capacity with a large, updated kitchen and 2 baths. Two air conditioners which kept the cabin cool without effort when we stayed there in July. The resort is spacious so... More

We stay at the campgrounds so I can't speak for the other amenities but as far as the campgrounds go they are clean, well taken care of, and kid friendly. The marina is nice and handy. The employees are friendly and very helpful. My suggestion to anyone that has never stayed there is to take a drive over and check... More

First of all, the previous reviewer is definitely not referring to the same resort. My family and I have been coming to Big Bear Resort for about 20 years now. We have always had a great time and never have had a problem. The owners & staff have been superb and very friendly. We have stayed in everything from the... More

Very disappointed in this resort from the start. After paying for the cottage the resort attempted to take this out of our account twice. Once we arrived was told over the phone our room was ready, when we got there it hadn't been cleaned. The lady at the front desk was very rude and never apologized once just blamed it... More

Your reservation was for one night only and could not have been cancelled by you as we only had the one night available. In addition, maintenance went into the unit after you left and the temperature in the unit was 68 degrees. Our resort is kept in impeccable shape and your statement does not reflect our property. Your credit card... More

We stayed in one of the town houses at Big Bear Resort. Overall, the townhouse was clean, the kitchen had all major appliances, and the deck was great! All of the staff that we interacted with were friendly and helpful. We will return!

Big Bear Resort was such a wonderful laid-back place to stay. It was the perfect down-home family getaway for my husband and I to do some boating and fishing and just relaxing. I saw a couple of earlier reviews that mentioned the condition of the dock. It was great when we were there. No problems whatsoever and everyone couldn't have... More

Stayed here for a reunion this summer. fishing was great! Boat docks were in desperate need of repair and dangerous for the kids. No food on site and golf carts are expensive for what shape they are in. needed some items from store and they were closed three days during the week. Staff was really nice but this place needs...

Had a big extended family gathering. Stayed in the condos. Good for all of us to gather outside together and close to docks. Wish there were not golf carts, nicer docks, and a but more modernization in condos, but overall had a good time.
