This place isn't fancy but it felt just right for us. Everything we could possibly need with a small kitchen, jacuzzi tub, air conditioning, and pet friendly. We were able to walk (~ 10 min) to the village and if you are able, you can also walk to the lake for the Miss Liberty boat tour, as its on the...

We stayed in Cabin 19. I selected this cabin because it had air conditioning, which we did use for a short time on the very warm summer days, and it has a cook top, which we did not end up using. We did use the bar-be-que more than once. All cabins had a bar-be-que next to them. We stayed 3...

We paid $150/night. Bed was comfortable, room was clean. Wifi was unusable (but they said they would check into it as we were checking out) but verizon signal was great so no big deal. Grounds and general upkeep of the place could benefit from some maintenance (broken items laying around, grill was falling apart, etc). Not a huge deal but...

Epic cabins ever. Verifying is clean and the offer everything you need, even plates and forks. Barbecue area right outside your doorstep. Cabin comes with yacuzzi, fireplace really cool and air conditioning. Lamas and rabbits in the garden area. BRING YOUR DOG. Really close to the lake and right in the middle of "The Village".We loved it.

Great mini-moon/vacay/getaway in Big Bear! The cabins are a close distance to all the great things that Big Bear has to offer. We booked Cabin 15, but upon arrival were told that because of a heater issue we would be checking into Cabin 17 which was not a problem at all. The man at the front office was nice and...

We found a Living Social coupon for this place and wanted to enjoy a short getaway with our two Aussies. Pine Knot met our needs and more. The cabin (#17) was spacious enough for all of us. The little kitchen worked for breakfast, and the jacuzzi and fireplace were a nice touch for the chilly nights. It was fun to...

Me and my boyfriend come out to Big Bear since it is a short drive out of San Diego. We both work crazy hours, and we occasionally need somewhere to reconnect and have a good time. We usually stay at Pine Knot. This April, we stayed three glorious nights. We can bring our dog, the staff is super helpful, and...

We stayed in one of the homes they have for rent this past weekend (Little Bear on Marin) and would definitely chose to go back. Love the location, truly only an easy 5 min walk to the downtown shops, peaceful. Took advantage of using the back patio and hot tub as had a lovely day even though it was March...

The owner told me when I walked in... "No one stays here for one night... You'll want to book another day by tomorrow" and he was right!!! If my wife didn't work we would have definitely stayed!
