The Black Forest Lodge in Big Bear Lake is a quaint, and quite old, hotel with cabins. You can stay in a regular room, or a cabin. We chose a cabin. The cabin had a queen size bed that was way too hard and my husband and I tossed and turned every night of our 3 night stay. There is a jacuzzi in each room, but we didn't use it. There was a bathroom that looked like it hadn't been fixed up in years. The sink was cracked and peeling which was kind of gross, but the bathroom was clean. The cabin we were in was decorated in florals; floral wallpaper, floral bedspread, floral curtains; and all the flowers were different kinds of flowers. It was kind of like sitting in the middle of a flower field way every kind of flower you could think of surrounding you. It looks very much just like the pictures on the Lodge's website.
All that being said tho, the cabin had a wonderful front porch with plastic chairs and a plastic table with an umbrella to shade you. Sitting out there in the morning with coffee and the evenings as the sun set was well worth any inconvenience we may have had. It was exactly what we were looking for; peacefullness, rest and alot of relaxation.
The hotel is located right across from a really good restaurant and a good Mexican food restauant as well. It is in an excellent location, kind of the middle of the tourist section of town. It's close to the lake, the marinas and "The Village".
I would suggest to my friends they give it a try, but you have to be willing to stay in an old place that has little upkeep in the last several years. When we left there, we were definately relaxed and the atmosphere of the overall lodge contributed to that. I would stay again.
