We stayed here at the Big Bear Lodge & Resort for just two nights in October to catch the foliage, but it was home away from home. The 2 bdr/ 2ba condo was located on the 5th floor . It was tastefully decorated, very comfortable, and had a gorgeous view of the mountains.
Amenities included cable tv, free WiFi, washer/ dryer, and a fully equipped kitchen. Both bedrooms have king sized beds as well. Mike and Kathy, the property mgrs, were so pleasant and friendly to deal with. We have no hesitation to return and stay in one of their properties again.
One tip: be mindful of the traffic on Winnfield Dunn Pkwy as it gets very congested. Check out other access roads to reach your destination, esp. when traveling during peak season.
