Had a great spot overlooking the lake, had good amenities and was spacious enough for the family without much hassle. They have a good community area but the "wine and cheese" time seemed more a trap for the sales force (didn't pay attention exactly what they were selling, the wine wasn't worht it)

The place was a little hard to find in the dark even with our navi system in part because of the snow and ice on the roads. Once we found it, we were very pleasantly surprised.

Our room had an amazing view of the lake. It was spacious for our 4 person family. The bedroom was a little small but the living area and kitchen made up for it. The bed was too soft for our taste. There were plenty of towels and the kitchen was adequately stocked.

The facility had an indoor heated pool and jacuzzi which our kids used every day. The workout room on site was substandard but there. The staff was extremely helpful and worked hard to fix problems as they arose.

The biggest complaint I can come up with is the parking. There just aren't enough spots for all of the cars when the facility is near or at capacity and for a $200/night place to not have adequate parking is just unacceptable.

We usually go twice a year...once in the winter for skiing/snowboarding on the nearby slopes and once in the summer to take the pontoon boat out for a cruise around the lake; they have a marina with jet ski, fishing boats and the pontoon boats! ...there is an inside heated pool/spa and an outside spa; the units range from 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms with full kitchens and outside BBQ area too. If you have kids they have a playground right next to the lake...I can't imagine another place having more to choose from! Oh yeah...they also have a wine hour in their upstairs game room although I don't recall which nights they do that...in the game room you can play pool, ping pong or watch TV...you gotta check it out to believe it! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room

Love coming to the Lagonita Lodge, the staff is excellent, Mrs Susan Troublefield (Manager/The one that makes everything happen & work) makes sure you are welcomed, informed, as well as the staff. Great location, great place for kids, great place for fishing, great place to get away from it all!

Room Tip: I have never been un happy with a room at the Lagonita Lodge, and they will move you to a different...

We have stayed twice at Lagonita Lodge...loved it both times! Is VERY clean and everyone is helpful and friendly.
We like to stay on the side with the view of the lake...absolutely beautiful!
It is quick and easy to drive into town for eating or for shopping!
We intend stay here many times when we visit Big Bear!

We rented an owner's split week for a mini vacation.
I really like the location, right on the lake. It's only a couple miles from the village and close to everything, as long as you have a car.
It's an older timeshare property, but has been kept up to date with newer appliances, remodeled bathrooms, etc. We had a one bedroom right on the lake, with a balcony. The only complaints were that the pull out sofa, although really comfy and newer as a sofa, was like most sofa beds, very uncomfortable. Also the heater was very loud when it would go on at night.
The furniture was all very nice, and the gas fireplace was beautiful.
The amenities are a real plus here. They have a rec room with 2 pool tables, foosball, pingpong, etc, all free. My boys spent a lot of time there. They also have an adult only lounge, an indoor pool and spa, and a covered outdoor adult only spa.
The staff was very friendly, and when we had two minor problems, they responded very quickly. Free parking,
They also do a full weekly activities schedule, like yoga, walks, bingo, field trips, etc.

Room Tip: Building 2 has lakefront rooms
