Your time away from the hustle and bustle is very important time, and we understand that here at Big Bear Lodge. Our guests are our number one priority, and we take great pride in providing you a very special place to relax and unwind during that most coveted time called vacation. Spending time away from the stresses of every day life is important to renew the soul. It is a time to reconnect with friends and family, and that includes bringing your favorite canine companion (up to two per cabin).

Maps and information are available in the lodge and we are happy to help find that special retreat or place to explore that you may enjoy.
