“if it had only snowed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

Everything was perfect. Spacious warm & cozy. Wish we stayed long enough to see some snow and build a fire. I will be staying here again soon. It was so cold outside and toasty warm inside. The clerk went above and beyondcto make our stay the best possible. He had the best sense of humor

Room Tip: Too cold to swim and the babies were too young to play outside. The two bedroom was spacious enough...

I really enjoyed staying here. Since I was only going with one other friend, we had just the right amount of space and wasn't too crowded. The cabin was very clean and well kept. Since the price was also very reasonable, it made the stay even better. Also, the customer service and contacts from the off-site office were very helpful and polite. The cabin upkeep was great as well and we were provided with the necessary toiletries. Firewood was also provided if we needed at a decent price. Will definitely be calling here again when I am back at Big Bear.

I want to thank everyone for being so nice to me & keeping my room immaculate and always there with a smile! I burned a fire every night, and when I come up with my 3 dogs until I get into my house I know they can accommodate me. And, the price is right!!

Great place to stay. My boyfriend and I rented cabin 15 for two nights in December. Check-in was easy, manager Fendi was friendly and accomodating. There are free movies in the lobby along with Big Bear tourist information. Cabin was great - clean and with free toiletries in the bathroom. Firewood is affordably priced - even cheaper than in the big stores. Bed was HUGE and very comfy. Cabin was homely, nicely decorated and well lit. We went in Winter but the wall heater (and the fire in the fireplace if you should choose to make one) kept us warm. It started snowing our second day and forest view nearby was spectacular. Timberline Lodge is very close to the lake and Big Bear Village - about a three minute drive. As long as the prices stay affordable we will definitely keep coming back!

Room Tip: We stayed in cabin 15, which was nice and quiet except it was right next to the road so you could he...

This is a truly special and great place to stay, especially if you have a dog. The staff is exceptional too. There was a mix-up regarding room we booked on-line & the manager took full responsibility, upgraded our room, even physically moved a double bed into the room so we would be more comfortable. The lodge is very rustic so if you want if you want some place like the Hilton or a cookie cutter place like the Best Western where the room are the same ..go there.. but if you want a true cabin experience, wonderful customer service, a wood fireplace, a nice view of Big Bear Lake and a great price, this place is a find. And if you have a dog, this is the best place around!!! From the picnic area near the cabins, we watched our two dogs romp in the two fields next to lodge. The dogs were in heaven and so were we. Once again, it is rustic but very unique and clean.

Room Tip: Get a stand alone cabin.

This place is amazing! If you want a cabin in the woods experience, this is the place to be. It has a fire place inside the room and a picnic/bbq area outside. Has a nice porch area outside your door to relax and feel the mountain fresh air and feel.
Aside from the price being so affordable, the fire logs and other amenities are reasonably price. You definitely will feel the experience you are looking for especially if yo have kids. Very family friendly and even has a play area. It is 1/3 mile away from pine knot trail, for hikers and mt bikers. You don't have to buy a pass or parking permit because it is so near from timberline.
If you want an affordable vacation experience this is the place to be. Call the Manager Fendi. He gave us a price better than what you can find online.

Had a couple of days before the end of our trip to So. Calif. so off to Big Bear Lake. Found this nice little property on-line and boooked it for 1 night. As soon as we arrived my wife said let's spend two nights here. The check-in was easy. The service great. Room was spotless. No it's not all brand new, it shows the age. Rustic and well used. Nice and quite with a fireplace and loads of wood. My wife always has fires at night and loved this place. We'll be back in the Fall and stay for a week. Thank You for a nice restful stay.

Room Tip: Get a King or Queen bed cabin in the back.
