“Perfect family vacation for 4”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

I loved it there I did call because u do want to get the cabin over the motel it was worth the extra money. My kids loved it there so close to everything we walked a lot and we cant wait to go back. The place was clean and they had free coffee and hot cocoa in the lobby. They also had games and videos u can rent.

We had an amazing view from our lake front cabin and well worth the price for some well needed R & R. They have small cabins to large 5 bedrooms cabins. With the trees all throughout the property it gives you a very warm, woodsy feel. Great customer service and very clean room. We will stay here again for sure!!!

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Loved the location and access to the beach. The property is beautiful and the cabin was perfect for our family. Definitely will stay here again! Only thing we would like to see some improvement in was the TV channel selections!

Room Tip: Variety of options and this provided the specific kind of accommodations we needed.

Classic Big Bear stay for those that know Big Bear and do not expect 4 star luxury. Big Bear Frontier has both Cabins and Hotel Style Lodging. We stayed in a two bedroom cabin not lake front but very close with a view of the lake. Most of the Cabins are attached to other units, so for the most part you are not in an independent/individual Cabin (a few are stand alone cabins). There are trees everywhere and the property felt very "woodsy". There are two sections to the property, some are closer to the lake while other are a very short distance away across the street (not a busy street). ALL units (hotel and cabins) have access to the lake. The exterior of the whole property is well maintained and has a quaint appearance. Cabins have BBQ's (bring your own BBQ utensils/only BBQ brush was provided) and moderately stocked kitchens with just the basics (ours had no dishwasher so break out those dishpan hands). No A/C so if traveling in the summer be aware. Our unit had stains on the carpet, small tears in the sofa, and a loose panel on the stove, but it had comfortable beds and seemed clean, although I did notice PETS in the other units were all over the furniture. Everything in the cabin was functional. There is also a pool, which we didn't use but the kids seemed to enjoy. Staff was very efficient and friendly and eager to please. At booking I made a specific request which they pleasantly took care of. Free WiFi was pretty decent. I would recommend Big Bear Frontier to anyone looking for a basic no frills stay in a beautiful mountain setting.

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.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends
