“A little bit of Paradise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

My granddaughter got married 3 weeks ago on Big Bear Mountain. So much of our family was there. We stayed at Big Bear Frontier Hotel. It
was great. The staff was very pleasant. The rooms clean. We really weren't sure what to expect but there was a little village there where
you could buy just about anything. We weren't sure what to expect
after going up that mountain for an hour but I have to admit it was well
worth the trip. Wished we could have stayed longer than 2 days.

Room Tip: Personally, I feel all the rooms are good. We were on the second floor which was nice because a cou...

Took my wife here for her birthday. We love the outdoors and spending time on the lake. They put is in a cabin the faced the lake. There are a bunch of cabins next to the lake but only two that actually face it. The cabins are just the right size, living area with large bedroom and fireplace. It was so peaceful to wake up and go sit on the porch and see the lake right in front of you. I wish I remember what cabin number to post.

Walking distance from the village, clean rooms and overall a great experience . I would definitely stay there again !

The cabins are a perfect size for a couple getaway. My boyfriend and I stayed for one night and there was a tree that went literally through the front room. It was pretty funny.

We walked about 3 minutes to the village and didn't have to worry about drinking and driving or looking for a taxi. The price is reasonable considering the prime location.

First time we have stayed here and the experience was great! Our family of four adults and three kids (ranging in age from 5 to 93) really enjoyed the spacious rooms near the lake (we were here mid-week, a great value) and the pool and hot tub. The premises are very clean, with colorful flowers planted and cute cabins under mature pines. Free coffee and wifi as well. We loved the rustic decor and the comfy beds as well as the giant deck overlooking the lake, perfect for meeting people and enjoying outdoor meals. This is our new favorite place when we want to escape the heat of the desert!

Room Tip: Cabins are located throughout the property with more expensive ones near the lakefront. The 20-room...

I choose this place because of the small cabins shown on their website which appeared to be on the lake. I booked a room (believing it was a cabin) through booking.com. Upon our arrival we were put into a room in a Motel 6 type row with a view of the main road. We complained but were told that since we did not book with them directly we could only have a room not a cabin as we expected. I complained about the room so they switched us to a room supposedlywith a view of the lake. Again we were sent to a Motel 6 row, downstairs room, underneath the main stairwell with all the building's trash cans outside our door. No view, uncomfortable bed but made the best of our trip. It is not for couple's expecting a quiet weekend away. Will NOT stay here again and I am not too picky but this was just not what I paid for!!

Room Tip: Make sure you are getting an actual "cabin" not just a room.

Service was good, pool and spa were just right. Unfortunately, there was no air conditioning in our room. We only had a ceiling fan and another stand alone fan. Very tough to sleep until it got a little cooler in the wee hours of the night. Furniture was a little too rustic for my taste. The tv was set in a armoire, but the door wouldn't stay open completely.
