We needed as escape, as we often do from the package of bedlam called L.A. A 2 hour ride to Big Bear was the right ticket, climbing into clean air and deep blue skies (and increasingly more sane traffic). The lowland scrub and urban layout gave way to dry schist, prickly pear cactus and as elevation gained, blossoms of spring...

We loved them and their 2 bedroom cabins! Our lab was with us and not a bad price at all. I would recommend this place to anyone! We walked to eat and drink. Clean and it had everything you'd need on a trip!

I loved it there !! The cabin was nice not what I expected. They had cool paintings on the walls and lights at night outside . Close to shops/dinning. Stayed with 4 friends !! Have kitchen stuff there and everything we needed . The pool wasn't working but other than that I would stay again

Bear Creek Resort is a multi-building rustic property, dotted with private cabins and a motel. Though it was advertised as “slopeside” on the third party website where I made my booking, it is a 10-minute drive from skiing and snowboarding in Big Bear. It is located off the major and hence loud road. There wasn’t anything remotely “resort”-like about our...

Stayed here 2 nights,unfortunately there is nothing i can talk about positively. We stayed here 2 years ago even at the same cabin but everything was dramatically changed at this 2nd time. If you look at the most recent reviews you can tell how badly this place changed. Cabin is in full of dirt, fire place never been taken care...

THe room was double-booked due to system failure, the owner have no idea what to do even though this has happened several times, and basically what they would do is try to find somewhere else for you, and if they cannot one they just gonna kick you out literally. WORST resort management ever!

well...if your looking for a resort this isnt the place for you. We stayed here over the busy holiday because pretty much everything else that was "reasonably" priced was sold out. So we got what we paid for....a tiny little bare bones one room cabin with bare bones necessities. Not great but we were warm and dry and enjoyed our...

We checked in and the people at the front desk were nice. The place was empty and there were many cabins and rooms available. For some reason, they decided to put us in the cabin right up front right next to the busy highway. When we got inside, you could hear the traffic going by so we went back to...

We stayed here for our anniversary as a last minute venture. We didn't stay in the cabins but the room we stayed in was great. The lady at the front desk was very nice. The room was very clean and warm. The restroom was a bit cold with no heater if I had to say something negative but otherwise we...

“Location Avoid rooms near elevators in Vegas & rooms near roads at hotels. Engage the front desk, service in return is invaluable!”

“Do not get cabin #1, it may be the cheapest but it is attached to #2 & #3, and you can hear everything in the adjoining rooms. Plus it is on the side of the Highway, with all the car noise.”
