We discovered the Big Bear Hideaway four years ago...and it is now a firm tradition. From the two of us, we now share the Hideaway with three families...totalling 18 people! This is the perfect getaway, whether for just two, or crowds of family and friends. The cabins are truly works of art -- each one unique and all of them... More

Big Bear Hideaway is beautiful. We honeymooned here and we loved it.The prior owner built all the log cabins and hand carved the wood furniture. It's small with about 6 cabins total so it is quiet and private. The pictures don't do it justice. I can't describe how beautiful it is. It is cozy, comfortable, and laid back. The owner... More

New owners Troy and Bobbi were more than inviting to my extended family as we enjoyed the Panda Bear Lodge and all of the amenities Big Bear Hideaway has to offer. Each hand built building has its own character with stunning detail that you will not find anywhere else! The fire pit, outdoor eating area, sauna, bikes, canoes etc. are... More

So on June 12, 2015 we got married at North Trout Lake and had our reception at Big Bear Hideaway. There are 5 cabins that accommodated our immediate families and wedding party perfectly!... More

We stayed one night in a very cool cabin with tons of character. It felt like we were in a tree house! Troy and his wife (new owners) were most helpful and accommodating. They had bikes available and there is a great bike path near by. Cabins are a short walk to town.

We were in the smallest of the cabins, and it was cozy and well furnished. Complete with stove, fridge, microwave oven the kitchen had everything you could want in terms of dishes,cookware etc. The location is right at the edge of Boulder Jct making it easy to just walk into town. Would rent this place again!

Immaculate one of a kind cabin rentals. Family built and owned. Beautiful and private setting, walking distance to Boulder Junction. Couldn't ask for more! Each cabin uniquely designed and artistically crafted. The experience is magical. Baby deer born during our stay every spring. Often see eagles and all kinds of birds. Hospitality abounds and every need is met by the... More

Great location, walking distance to some bars, dining, etc. I would love to go back here! It would be nice if they took a... More

Joe & Mary Hovel, owners & builders of Big Bear Hideaway, have truly created one of the most unique lodging experiences in the Northwoods. We stayed in the Grizzly cabin and could not believe the attention to detail and the overall coziness of the place. Everything was ultra-clean as well. We also loved that we were able to bring our...
