1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Cabins are super small and for the price you can get a much better deal with a lot more room. Boat dock only good for fishing off of..not accessible by boat. Walls are paper thin. Zero privacy lots of traffic noise.

Ryan V, General Manager at Big Bear Frontier Cabins & Hotel, responded to this review, October 22, 2014
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I apologize that your experience was 100% satisfactory. In your review, you state that the size of your cabin was very small; we offer a variety of cabins in larger sizes. I always encourage guests to call and book directly through us so that we can get you exactly what you are looking for.

Unfortunately, due to California's drought and lack of rain, our lake too is suffering. I'm sorry that you could not access our dock with your boat. We do have restrictions on how far we are able to push it out and maintain access.

It is my hope that you will try our property again, I'm certain if you call directly you will be given many details on several of our cabins that will suit your needs.

Best,

Ryan Vasquez
General Manager

We stayed here a few weeks before Christmas, it was wonderfully white. We had a great time family of 4 and a dog. We stayed in a one bed cabin with fire place that had a mud room to take off your wet stuff to keep a dry carpet. Fire place was lovely cable was not only a few channels and they were staticey. Shower, heated worked great. The kitchen said full but didnt have much as far as pots and pans measuring cups etc.. full size fridge pool is tiny but clean and jacuzzi was hot! Would stay again even though you have to book and pay in full in advance.

We have stayed here a couple of times already. We enjoy the Studio Cabins with the Whirlpool! Carpets do need some updating and the water heater does not support filling up the tub, but we do enjoy the fresh air and the atmosphere! Always our first choice when going to Big Bear. Super close to the Village also.

My family and I were looking for a nice relaxing and quiet get away. We found it at the Frontier We rented one of the cabins and found it clean and very comfortable. The staff was great and very helpful with any questions that we had. Would definitely come back and stay here again.

We have stayed here a few times and have always had a wonderful time. This last visit was terrible though! We had room 119 right by the lake with its own private deck. At first we thought score, until we saw the giant spider webs covering the private deck, the people kicking soccer balls into your car as they play in the parking lot, loud/ drunk crowds on the deck and wrost of all the people smoking right outside your bedroom window (which of course was open due to no air conditioning and summer heat) and the smoke wafting into your room as you try to sleep. The roof was also exceptionally loud any time anyone in the room above took a step or rolled over in bed. Needless to say we will not be staying the the motel ever again! The cabins on the property however have also been great. If only we could do the trip over again!
