Rustic Big Bear mountain resort with lakeside or creekside rooms
In the California mountains, snow can fall as late in the year as June. That's why skiers, snowboarders and winter enthusiasts of all kinds make a point of heading to Big Bear Frontier. Big Bear Frontier is a lakefront resort that offers not just access to nearby ski hills, but a true mountain vacation experience. Wooded grounds stretch from Big Bear Boulevard all the way to the waters' edge of beautiful Big Bear Lake, adjacent to the San Bernardino National Forest. 

  • Hotel rooms and cabins available
  • On the shores of Big Bear Lake
  • Cabin with pine tree growing through it

Big Bear Frontier is located one block from Big Bear Lake's Village and the many shops and restaurants available there.

Big Bear Frontier offers creekside or lakeside rooms, or cabin rentals. Almost all rooms come with a fireplace to make them extra cozy. Each of the resort's 30 cabins has its own personality. There are private one-bedroom cabins with a Jacuzzi for two, cabins with direct access to the sandy beaches of Big Bear Lake and even one cabin with a giant pine tree growing through it.

 

The hotel's rentals all feature access to private beaches, fishing, heated pool, hot tub, barbecue facilities, horseshoes, ping pong, basketball court and more.

Great for one night

We were on a road trip in August 2014 and we stayed one night at this hotel. Since we did not spent that much time in the room I can only say that it was clean, the personal was nice and the overall stay was great. I would totally recommend this place.

Very Clean and Comfortable

Stayed for one night, room was clean and comfortable. Mini fridge was most welcome as was in room coffee maker. Bathroom amenities were a not great but surely serviceable. Over all a great little mountain space for a night.

enjoyable family getaway

We enjoyed our stay and plan on going back again soon. We enjoyed the Village being so close. And the Lake view was nice. There is a great Restaurant within walking distance. A long wait for the food, but is was very worth the wait. Also, a Dog friendly place, so we will bring out pet next time.

The Village is close enough if you like a good walk, or a short drive.

big bear picnic

The hotel is situated right next to a marina and we were given a lake view room, which had a deck with chairs overlooking the marina. The room had a working stone fireplace which we didn't use since it was during summer but would have been great during winter. The toiletries were a bit small but it didn't really make a difference to the two of us for the one night stay. The hotel was situated in a charming grove of trees and the lobby had a pool table and library of DVD's. The beds were ok, but the pillows were the typical flat motel variety. All-in-all, a get what you pay for experience.

The steak house next door should be avoided. The food was terrible and poorly presented. Our neighbors were eating there too and sent all their food back. I didn't bother since I knew there wouldn't be any way they could make it better.

Right on the lake!

We stayed in a standard room. Very cozy, on the lake, right by the village and clean! It was snowing when we went and even got to do a little sledding right by the hotels patio on the lake, it was gorgeous!The front desk girl was very nice! The rooms have fire places but they do not provide wood, kinda weird but we just bought some down the road. Everytime the water was turned on it sounded like a train was passing and it woke me up through the night.. But that would be my only complaint.

One Night Stay

It was located by the lake which was great, but was loud, Did not expect much more than location and it worked for a one night stay to go skiing at Big Bear.

Great Experience

I loved my stay in the cabin decorated hotel room. It is not the hilton, but it is definitely perfect for a weekend away. The room was right in front of the lake which made the stay even better.
