“Best 2-Star Property Available!”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

I had a great experience at this property! But be sure and temper your expectations as this is a 2 star property that is lacking some areas. These cabins are "cozy" and close to town just don't expect a modern cabin with new amenities. My wife and I went for a weekend of skiing at Snow Summit and the cabin served its purpose and we loved our real fireplace with the 0 degree temps outside. The sheets/comforter needed replacing and the laminated directions to the heater that were pasted to the wall took away some of the old charm. So if you are looking for a budget friendly cabin with a real fireplace, this is the place for you and I also have to mention the lodge attendant was very helpful and enhanced my experience at Timberline Lodge.

This place had several options in cabin sizes for our growing snowboarding group and all of them were at a fair price. I've been three times with different sized groups and will be a continuing customer.

A great cozy place to stay that is a 5 minute drive from the slopes, and yet far enough away to still keep that mountain feeling. You are in your own personal cabin with all of the items necessary, and if there was something extra needed it was provided within minutes. This lodge is great for everyone of all ages. Also great for families with children as there is a playground area for the children to enjoy, and anyone with children knows this is a huge help to burn that extra energy off the kids. Very friendly staff. I will stay there from here on out when a trip to big bear is on the agenda. Thanks for a great vacation!

If you want a clean, comfortable fireplace cabin in the woods on the lake for a great price this is a winner. Rustic but functional and cozy w/ a great location, quiet and scenic, and hiking trails just behind the property. The manager Fendi, is genuinely warm and helpful, very nice. The Village is a short walk and a small market is up the street. The lake is across the way and the ski area is a bus ride in 10 minutes. Perfect. Had an older tv but full satellite 100 channels and dvd player w/ wide choice of movies. Awesome front porch w/ chairs and view. Pool was closed for winter. BBQ and picnic areas abound.

Room Tip: There are many different cabin types for all occupancy requirements.

We stayed here this summer in one of the larger cabins for a week and had a great time. There were a lot of bugs by the pool but you didn't really notice them once you were in the water. Our unit had two bedrooms and a pullout couch which was more than enough for us and the price was right. There were also enough utensils in the kitchen to cook decent meals with. Our unit had a little patio which was nice to sit out on but make sure you have citronella because the bugs are insane! The bbq are was a standard size webber grill right outside our door. It was nice that the staff emptied the coals for us each day.

The manager was exceedingly nice and gave us free toothpaste, razors and snacks LOL! I would definitely go back again.
