3 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We've been guests of Shore Acres for a couple of decades now and I believe the same couch and chair are in the Sunrise cabin as 20 years ago. There are so few "affordable" lakefront places to stay in Big Bear, at $500 a night Shore Acres is a bargain believe it or not. But please Big Bear Vacations -... More

Lakefront cabins are clean and have kitchens stocked with all you need to make a home cooked meal. You can catch your dinner on the lake, which is a minute's walk from your doorstep, and bbq in the picnic area. The pool is perfect for the whole family. The people at Big Bear Vacations are really helpful and the onsite... More

Came here with a group of 16 adults for a co-ed bachelor/bachelorette party, and this place was perfect! Small 1-2 bedroom cabins but perfect size, and some were right on the lake! I know there are a lot of bad reviews but they are OLD - the new owner/management have totally updated the place and they are completely clean with... More

Came across an awesome deal on Groupon and booked a weekend stay at Shore Acres Lodge (Cabin Lakeview #109). My family and I have been to Big Bear Lake a couple times, and each time we have stayed in different areas around the lake. I think we finally found a place that we would actually book again! The cabin was... More

My review is not intended to be malicious, but I think you should know what you are in store for if you get Cabin #100 at this location. The cabin is very rustic, and while it has charm there were several drawbacks: MOUSE DROPPINGS in dishes, moldy shower curtain, trash in room from previous guests, toilet wobbling and detaching from...

Cabins need serious work. Really disappointing. Grounds were bad too. I've stayed here in the past and it was great but that was years ago. Very pricey for what you get. No way this place gets my money again until major overhaul occurs.

Below is what I wrote on the 2 Surveys that "Big Bear Vacations", the Company I booked through, sent me. I have given them 2 weeks to respond figuring that, at least if they responded to my concerns, I might not post this review. STILL WAITING ? Stayed at Shore Acres Lodge Sunrise #108 on 6/7-9.

I just read the other reviews and am surprised to see such unhappy campers. I admit this is a cabin in the woods.. and like i say in my review, do not expect anything fancy. But, also it is very expensive even with our coupon and we probably won't be back because of the price. ----------- We stayed in Lone... More

OK, the location is great. Been coming to Big Bear for over 20 years. Stayed in LakeFront 110. Haven't been in this cabin for abou 10 years . . . it looked like it hadn't been touched in that long. Dirty. Worn. Funky. Just yuck. The total price, including a crazy $115 cleaning fee, came to over $400 for ONE... More
