The lodge is about four miles from the east boat ramp, right on Big Bear Blvd. It is a quiet, family atmosphere that is very pet friendly. The 2 bedroom with 2 queen size beds in each room that we stayed in was old, but clean. It had a small bathroom, kitchen and a balcony that the manager let us BBQ on. The living room area had two couches that have seen better days, but were actually comfortable. The manager has a large VHS and DVD library that he loans to guests for free. We stayed during "shark week" and that is all my kids wanted to watch. Luckily the lodge has free WiFi and I could sit on the balcony and watch movies and TV shows on HuLu.
Although it is far from being a 5 star lodge, the manager and staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating. He gave us 50% discount coupons for a local bicycle rental place that was also a great deal. I am sure there are better places to stay in Big Bear, but for the $57 per night we paid, plus the place sleeps 8 people - you can't beat it.
