Returned or our 2nd year ski weekend with 4 young children. Not disappointed with the personal service and patience with our family. Basic, clean rooms, no frills with couple large lounging rooms that we all enjoyed. Perfect for a family weekend,

Amenities are non-guaranteed. Falsely advertised hot tub - as it was not functional for our stay. It really ruined the experience as I booked this lodge specifically for the comfort of lounging by the hot tub after a long day of boarding. When brought to the owners attention, no courtesy or care was shown in the slightest. Disappointing to say...

This is our 4th year at Big Bears Lodge and we absolutely love it! Caroline and Steve are the most charming hosts and make you feel like you are "home". We go with a group and therefore the meals are included and the food is wonderful - large cooked-to-order breakfasts and the dinners are exceptional. The rooms are very cozy...

We booked in for a Murder Mystery week-end and had a very nice time. It is misleading that this is called a lodge - a motel with a couple of sitting rooms, one with a nice looking fireplace doesn't made a true lodge. For a motel? Not too bad. Relatively clean, large end unit on the top floor with additional...

We stayed at this lodge recently. It actually is not a lodge as you would think, it is more like a Motel 8 with the stark rooms, outdated interior, at best warm shower water, and 1950's are calling -they want their bedspreads back-type of place (and the gold blanket that you know has not been washed in YEARS-eww). Others have...

We spent two nights there and was involved in a dinner theatre. The host were outstanding and very friendly. The entertainment was really fun and I highly recommend this place. The murder mystery night was exciting and loads of fun. Even if you're not involved in the entertainment, you may want to visit here anyway.

Stayed for 2 nights in February. Cute little motel. Very quiet, older furnishings but clean and comfortable. Didn't get a chance to sample breakfast. Great value for the money. So close to the mountain! Will certainly stay here again.

We have been staying at this location (under different names and different owners) for over 20 years. It is very close to Mt. Snow. The rooms are not the Marriott, but they are clean and inviting. The owners (Steve and Caroline) could not make us feel more welcome. Breakfast is varied, good and filling. We come every year with a...
