My husband and I booked the lodge room #1 for a weekend in August. The lodge is warm and beautiful, the bed was very comfortable and there were tons of things to do in the area, yet we were secluded from everyone else. The shower didn't have a whole lot of pressure, but it was hot and clean, with plenty... More

We stayed in the lodge and really liked it. The rooms are very comfortable with a small table and chairs as well as refrigerator and coffee maker. Everything is new and in excellent condition. The lounge area has very comfy chairs for reading or just relaxing. The lodge is really beautifully decorated in northwoods style. Although the lodge room has... More

We stayed in the Birch Room, which was a great experience. The room was clean and comfy, and the lodge itself was beautiful. With a screened in porch perfect for reading or playing in. Bad weather kept us mostly indoors, but the view from the dock is spectacular! Continental breakfast was simple, but perfect, and the homemade pizza is excellent.... More

We are already planning our next trip back. Big Bear is the perfect destination to get away from it all and reconnect with your spouse and nature. No TV no cell phone just the beautiful sound of loons, an occasional moose, waves splashing against the shore, chipmunks chatter, crackling fire. Complete tranquility. The main lodge is beautifully decorated and Andy... More

My husband and I were able to get away for a couple days and fortunately Big Bear Lodge's cabin #3 was available. As mentioned on their website, the cabin is six feet from the lake. We enjoyed listening to the lake during the night. The view of the lake is beautiful and can be seen wherever you are in the... More

Our family of four stayed at Big Bear Lodge the first week of August 2015. In spite of cool and rainy weather many days, we had what we considered a perfect vacation. The owners Andy and Ida could not have been more gracious hosts. The cabins at Big Bear Lodge are perfect if you're looking for timeless comfort with the... More

We enjoyed our short stay in the beautiful north woods, not far from Canada as the crow flys. Our hosts were wonderful, very gracious and accommodating and were more than happy to point us in the right direction for moose sighting (we weren't lucky enough to see one). We'll go back for sure!

Loved our stay here. Very peaceful and quite. Beautiful view from the dock. Very dog friendly which is a big plus for us and our two dogs. And the beds were amazing we slept better there than we do in our own bed!

The cabin(#3) we stayed at was very clean and the bathroom spotless. It has that rustic feel but the comfort of a hotel(you need it with little kids) but amidst the beautiful surroundings of Gunflint and the Poplar lake. The lake was just steps away from our cabin so my kids have the best times going in and out of... More
