The pods are warm and comfortable and located close to the toilet and shower facilities which are also all warm and clean. We took... More

Bedroom has everything you need and bed was really comfortable with great views out to the hills. Every need is catered for and the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as B&B guests whilst visiting friends and family around the local area. The lodge is stunning inside and has fantastic views over the hills and surrounding countryside. Cassie and Gary were really welcoming and made us feel at home. We stayed in Banff, which was compact but comfortable. The only thing we noticed about... More

My husband and I visited the Big bear lodge once again,but this time instead of being a glamper we were lucky enough to be staying in the stunning B&B. Stunning rooms with a very smart ensuite wet room. Very comfortable bed and amazing views out to the countryside. Breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked by Gary. Nothing was too much trouble...

Stayed recently for one night, the place is smaller than we thought from the television but was so nice, spotlessly clean. We stayed in the Whistler room. The owners are very friendly and helpful.
