“Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I've stayed here a few times and have enjoyed it. The staff is friendly. The cabins are fun to stay in and aren't too rustic since they have microwaves, etc. It's nice to have a real fireplace.
The location is excellent. There is a beach right there, a little dock, round tables with umbrellas, picnic tables, and grills. You can walk to the town for lunch, dinner, shopping, and drinks later on in the evening and not have to worry about that drive back! It's only a few minutes to walk to a boat ride on the lake in one direction and the luge ride in the other.
My only negative is that the TVs need to be updated. It's only $200 for a 32" HDTV flat screen. I'm not sure why hotels continue to hang on to those big hard to watch tubes.
Whether you want to relax or have some fun, Big Bear Frontier Cabins & Hotel is a great option.

Room Tip: Call instead of booking online. The staff is very good about helping you find what you want.

My wife and I came here last year for a quick night out of town and had a blast. The cabins are great. The location is perfect for walking to the village. It's also right on the lake and our dog had a blast playing on the beach. We're going back again soon.

Room Tip: Get a cabin. They have rooms too but the cabins win.

Cindy answered my call for a reservation and was very professional and helpful. Less than five minutes of hanging up the phone, she sent me a confirmation email. The location is great and the rooms are clean.

Great place to stay while we were exploring the trails in Big Bear with our 4 wheel drive Xterra. Actually up here on a referral from a friend who has stayed here in the past, and we really enjoyed it. Very clean, and centrally located. We liked the fact that our room had a coffee maker and microwave...easy mornings to get up and go. A big thanks to Cyndi and David for helping to book our group up here. This will be our "go to" lodging location for all Southern California Club Xterra runs, including future CANVAZ events.

Room Tip: Rent a cabin, well worth the extra $$$.

I have stayed at Big Bear Frontier Cabins & Hotel twice now. The first time was in the hotel area with my hubby & kids. The 2nd time was in a cabin, with my husband, for our anniversary. I really enjoyed both! The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had a great rustic vibe. They have a pool table, swimming pool, jacuzzi, ping pong & basketball hoop that we all took advantage of. It was great family time together. When it was just my husband and I, the cabin was a perfect getaway amongst the trees and had a beautiful lake view. If you're looking for a great low-key, relaxing place, try the Frontier.

Room Tip: For the hotel, some rooms have jacuzzis, some have fireplaces, etc... Make sure you choose the room...

My husband and I stayed at the Big Bear Frontier for our anniversary, we really enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the fireplace on the cold evenings. We enjoyed the deck that overlooked the lake and the proximity to everything.

My husband and I recently stayed at Frontier Cabins and could not recommend it more, such friendly staff, so helpful, lovely cabins, walking distance into The Village, to all the shops, restaurants and of course Murrary's!

We loved our time up in Big Bear and will be back as soon as we can.

Thank you all at Frontiers!
