We escaped LA and ventured up to Big Bear for some fall-like weather and hiking. The location is great -- walking distance to the downtown area and various restaurants, a Starbucks down the street, and a few other places. It's about a 10 minute drive to the discovery center on the other side of the lake which is a great base for some day hikes. The rooms are a bit dated, but they're what you expect at a mountain lodge. We drove by some other places that looked nice, but it seems like they're all about the same. If you want to walk around town and have a few cocktails at dinner (without worrying about driving), this is the place to stay!
