We arrived at big bear last September 24 all the way from the Philippines and stayed overnight. The rooms were spacious and clean. The bathroom while spartan, served its purpose. Rita, the owner was a gracious host and very accommodating. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit.

Lovely location very friendly welcome and good value. Room done out in Bavarian style and comfortable bed. We stayed one night on our car tour, an easy drive from LA but we hit a lot of traffic coming Friday afternoon.

The only thing cute abut my room was the fire place. The price was good and you get what you pay for. It had pool, not heated. Free Wifi-ok., The walls are paper thin-I could hear my neighbor snoring.

This totally looks like something out of the Black Forest in Germany. It has great atmosphere. It is very minimalistic. No add-ons, which is great if you just want a place to sleep and keep your stuff. There is a TV and good Internet, so that is helpful, but the fireplace is gas and a little weird. The beds are...

Stayed in the Black Forest Lodge for one night in September 2016. Found one vacant room left on Booking.com and booked it on a whim. This lodge exudes a Bavarian-German feel and is a very cozy and quaint lodge for a one night stay or weekend getaway! I stayed in Lida's Haus which offered a private and pleasant garden view....

My husband and I went to the Oktoberfest in Big Bear and spent 2 nights at the lodge. Our room was big and the bed comfortable. The reception staff was very friendly. We had an ensuite spa which was great, I didnt like the fact of stepping onto carpet when leaving the spa though. We didnt have any bath mats... More

We have stayed here several times and LOVE it! We havecstayed in several of the different cabins. This is the chalet we had for us and our 2 adult children. It was like a mini apartment! We LOVED the sky lights and French doors that open onto a small deck. Our wood burning fireplaces was so nice! These eclectic cabins... More

BEWARE: At the front desk they offer a 10% discount if you leave a positive review, so unfortunately I learned the hard way that you can't really trust what the good reviews say. The woman who checked us in was very nice, though. When I walked in to our room, it was like I'd traveled back in time to 1977.... More

Being my second time at Black Forest Lodge, I am happy to say they did not disappoint. From the start the lady working the front desk was very kind and helpful and allowed me to check in early as soon as the maids cleaned the room. I've been here in the Winter and Summer and Black Forest is equipped to... More

I must say the staff was friendly. Very spacious chalet with all the kitchen amenities you could possibly need. The furniture is a little outdated so are some of the TVs in the room but for the price you really can't beat it. The bed downstairs was a little uncomfortable but the two upstairs in the Loft were excellent. They... More
