Everything in the cabin was dirty. The floor in the kitchen, the carpets in every room were coming apart and were black with dirt. The couch was filthy, and hard as a rock. The t.v stand was falling apart, and the t.v was from the 80's. The bed was so uncomfortable. The coils in the mattress were stabbing us in... More

The rooms are... More

I was looking for a place to stop for a night before heading camping on the Stanislaus River. I found Timberline online, the price was very good, and the rooms looked clean and well-kept. Check-in time was between 3 and 8 pm, so I called ahead to let them know we wouldn't arrive until 11pm. At 10:55 I got a... More

Okay - I've read the reviews below and I wonder at the logic skills of some of the reviewers. My sister and I found the last room in the entire town here last weekend and were so happy we did. The Timberline is one of the most affordable accommodations in Big Bear. The location is ideal, the units are reasonably... More

After the Inn Der Bach lost our reservation we found this place online. We were very grateful to have found a place to stay that allowed pets & had a full kitchen however once we saw where we were staying we wished we had looked longer. The floor didn't look like it had been vaccuumed, cobwebs hung in several corners,... More

Beautiful, comfortable, and affordable! The scenery was amazing, with the lake right across the street. The staff and service are great, & very friendly. We really appreciate the privacy and comfort we had, it was like our home away from home. Will be staying there again this winter!

The Timberline Lodge is a great place to stay. They offer a variety of styles of accommodations and it is located in a great place. It is situated about halfway between the Village and Boulder Bay. We have stayed here twice and will definitely return. The first time we stayed last Summer in a one bedroom Mini cabin, this past... More
