“Lovely renovated chalets, and an awesome wine room!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

My husband and I went to Big Bear last weekend and stayed at Wolf Creek in a chalet (#21) with our lovely Bulldog Matilda. We bought a groupon for $150 for the weekend to stay in the motel/hotel portion, but we had to pay an extra $100 to book the chalet so we could stay with our dog ($50 upgrade fee and $50 pet fee). We thought it was pretty reasonable considering the fact that we also got tickets to a concert at The Cave in the village on Saturday night. Everyone that worked at Wolf Creek was super friendly and helpful. We checked in Friday with no problems, and we were pretty impressed with the little chalet. The only problem we really had with the room was that it seriously needed either ceiling fans or an air conditioner because in the August heat, it was super hot during the day and still pretty warm at night. Luckily they provided a tower fan, which we moved around the unit with us. Things you can't beat- the hotel is pet friendly, they have a free shuttle that will take you to the other properties owned by the Stone family (Bear Creek, The Cave and the Fireside Lodge) if you want to enjoy the wine room and still head into town or vice versa, and they have lovely grounds with a vineyard in the back! The free shuttle to the village, meeting the owner, a fun concert venue and the after party with the band at the Wine Room definitely made our trip memorable. I would absolutely stay here again.

Room Tip: The chalets have a separate bedroom and a kitchen area- but they are on the smaller side so two per...

We usually stay the the sister hotel - Bear Creek Resort - when we're in Big Bear but it was sold out so we tried out this place.

The first impression of this hotel is how badly it lacks landscaping. The grounds are rather large and they don't really take care of them very well.

Second impression is that the cabins are extremely small. We got a "one bedroom" since there were two of us. We were told there was a futon for the second sleeper -- however -- you have to move every single piece of furniture in the room in order to get this futon open AND it blocks the door once open -- so say goodbye if there is a fire in the place! The futon is a bit difficult to open as well and I had a fist size bruise on my leg after trying to close it the second morning.

Other than these issues, it's in a good location and it was clean. So.. while I'll always return to the Bear Creek for it's Cabin space and beautiful grounds ... I'd probably keep looking past the Wolf Creek.

So fun! Beautiful Wine Room with an excellent wine selection. Always has live entertainment. The staff is very friendly. Be sure to order a bottle - a nice surprise of a set of yummy chocolate truffles is your reward. If in Big Bear, this is a must stop by!

Went up for the weekend-the new wine room is amazing! Never thought I'd find such an environment in Big Bear-best accomodations by far, and now a beautiful atmosphere to enjoy a fine glass of wine. Excellent choices from many regions-these folks are doing it right!

My wife and i booked our last minute getaway to Big Bear, we have stayed at other lodges in the past, This property resently went through a head to toe renovation, the staff was very friendly and helpful, the front desk clerk Sue went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our stay, she gave us the managers special we free firewood, a couple of t-shirts and a pair of coffee mugs. The lodge is pet friendly, next time duke will get to come with us instead of staying in the doggy day care center. thanks again for a great time

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for one of the cabins with a fireplace makes for a romantic night

We stayed at this hotel for four nights by the end of February, as we bought an stay and ski package at Big Bear Mountain.
The hotel is great! Perfectly located on one of the main streets, just across a McDonalds and a Seven Eleven and very close to both Big Bear and Snow Summitt.
The rooms are beautifully decorated, with nice, big and very comfortable beds. They have a fire place and fridge, microwave and coffee maker. They provide with coffee and pop corn also.
The place has a hot tub which is perfect to recover after being at the mountain all day.
We were not able to make wifi work, and unfortunately the girl at the fron desk could not solve the issue either.
One minor detail, the last night we spent there our room was not cleaned up, they only left the towels in a bag lying on the bed...
I would defintely recommend staying here.

We stayed for a few nights in a chalet at the resort. The chalet was clean, a little small as we had 2 kids with us and did not relise how small it would be. I think the chalets are suited for couples only. The chalet had a kitchen and separate bedroom with a really comfortable bed. I would recommend staying here, but if you have 4 people select a bigger cabin, you will go crazy in one of the chalets, tripping over each other.
