“A Comfortable Quiet Lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2009

The accomodations were nice, clean, and comfortable. This lodge is pet friendly. We traveled with our dog and could not believe how well manintained the property was. Responsible pet owners make a difference. I will definitely stay here again when visiting Big Bear!

The owner is very friendly and helpful. The place is neat, clean, and comfy. Especially, if you bring kids, because it has a payground where the kids can play. Also, you can BBQ and picnic. Price is very reasonable. Location is so strategic and convienience.

What a pleasant surprise! The Timberline Lodge is sprinkled with cabins. The cabin we stayed in was meant for no more than 3 people and located upstairs. We walked in and it was wonderful! There was a wood-burning fireplace, wood paneling, a full kitchen, bedroom and bath. The "wallpaper" in the bath and bedroom was hand painted! We locked our bikes up on the bike rike provided, barbequed our meals using the community BBQs and even spent some time on the swings :) The lodge manager is polite and respectful. The cabin was clean and maid service was provided each day on request. This was our first visit to Big Bear. Without a doubt, we will return and without a doubt, stay at the Timerline Lodge.

I booked this online where there was a buy 2 nights get 1 night free offer, so 3 nights for just over $200 including taxes and fees. They have videos, books, free granola bars and tampons for the ladies when you register. We had a 2 bedroom cabin with 2 queen beds in each bedroom and it has a full kitchen and a picnic table and bbq outside and even a bench and ashtray on the porch for smokers. Kids had a blast with the basketball, tetherball and horseshoes. This is a rustic, older property, so if you are looking for the Four Seasons, don't come here, but if you want to relax, it is only a few blocks from the oh so fun Alpine Slide and for an added charge you can even bring your dog.

We found the Timberline by accident online and booked cabin 10 at once. Upon arrival, the service was excellent and the cabin was comfortable. The owner and his wife are nothing short of great people pampering us and assisting with information to make our stay even more enjoyable. Without a doubt, we will definitely return to the Timberline Lodge again with the assurance our needs and comfort is in the best hands. I recommend staying here at least once for everyone.

My husband and I just had our 2nd wedding anniversary, and spent a couple of nights at the Timberline Lodge. We had a studio cabin, with a King Bed. We walked in and were very excited at how cute it was. Exactly what we were hoping for. Cute old wood cabin that was well kept and clean. Management were very helpful and friendly. Great location, near a village and a pub that brew their own beer! We slept well here. The heating was fantastic. Lots of channels on cable tv, and even could grab movies (video). A great relaxing stay, at a good price.

The best thing I can say about timberline is their user friendly website and their free VCR tapes. The cabin (14) was not as nice as we had hoped. The price was cheap and we knew why the moment we opened the front door. It wasn't terrible, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I think the main problem was that the mgmt./owner did not make any effort to plow/shovel/scrape the driveway. It was very icy and difficult to walk, even to and from the car. I actually slipped and fell two times and had I injured myself more significantly, would have considered litigation. My wife was not impressed with the lack of a hairdryer in the room and the absence of any coffee filters. If you can't find any other accommodations, Timberline will suffice. I'd recommend you look elsewhere first, however.

  • Liked — Their website was very user friendly
  • Disliked — I slipped on the non-maintained blacktop and almost broke my shoulder
