Our family is hooked on the little cabins here. Very comfortable beds, beautiful fireplace, a kitchenette with everything but food. Tall pine trees, a creek running thru the property, flowers and friendly staff. A private deck with tables, umbrellas, chairs, ducks and a boat dock to walk out on to the lake. Perfect to enjoy a picnic lunch, relax and... More

I had a problem with the new television in the room and the television couldn't be fixed. The staff assisted me in moving me to another cabin. The room was comfortable and clean. Staff was accommodating and helpful. The cabins are close to the lake and to the village. I am looking forward to staying there again soon.

Ok. This is a cabin. In the mountains. It is not a 5 star resort. But is was cute, relaxing and comfortable. We had a small studio, just right for 1 or 2 people.It had a mini kitchen with all the tools.The best part was a large balcony overlooking the lake. Slept with the windows open!

It is wonderful that you had a relaxing, comfortable stay and could enjoy the nearby Big Bear Lake. The early mornings and evenings are so relaxing because of the pretty grounds, the lovely lake and the quiet and stillness of it all. We hope you will come back soon, enjoy the cooler weather up here, and spend time with us.... More

We stayed in a cozy cabin with a fireplace, mini kitchen (range, micro, frig, and sink) and a little private deck, complete with patio furniture. Room and bath were clean. Bed was comfy. Grounds are nicely kept. All in all it was good deal all around. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Originally, I had booked the hotel section of the Big Bear Frontier. I was a little cautious in booking a cabin, as I read some fo the recent reviews. From working in the hotel industry, I thought that the hotel section would be the right choice. When I checked in, the very pleasant front desk people advised me that I... More

It was great to read your review, especially coming from someone who knows and is in the business. You are so right when you say, "remember where you are", and 5 star amenities wasn't the what the hotel advertised. I am so glad you were upgraded and your tip is exactly right.

It is with great concern and dissappointment that we get your review. Because of our altitude, fleas or bed bugs do not inhabit Big Bear, however, we can have ants. Every hotel, motel, cabin, and home can have ants at during different times in Big Bear. Usually when they are looking for food and there is snow on the ground,... More
