Stayed here over the summer, be forewarned that the place is not as pictured. Rooms had a old wooden smell to it, but don't think there's much to get by that. The furniture and decor are old and tired. They don't really maintain this place all that well or that often. Staff was nice but I think that's if you... More

We stayed here in June via a voucher purchased with Amazon Local. Check-in time is 3:30, yet there was not only no office, there was no one on-site to help us. Tim arrived at about 5p, full of apologies. Our room was just OK. The best I can say was the bed and bedding were clean and new. Tim collected... More

We arrived for our first family vacation only to find out they lost our reservation. I had the print out of our hotel confirmation but that made no difference. Staff was friendly but not helpful in finding us new accomodations.

This place feels like home. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in big bear. Friendly staff. Amazing price. Beautiful grounds. Keurig in every room. The best place in big bear. Period. Fireplaces, mountain view, stream, fake deer (in a cute not creepy way), out of the way.
