was 100+ heat at home, drove about 1 1/2 hour to Lakewood Cabins in Big Bear, this was out 2nd visit and it was only 78 < all 3 days we were there> the cabins aren't fancy but it was clean and had what we $80 a night it was well worth it ..Dave the manager is very nice and helpful. missed my grandkids so rented another cabin for 1 night and their Dad brought them up/ we plan on going again soon

I hoped for a romantic vacation but it was no where close to one. The room door was broken looked like someone broke in and we felt unsafe. Half the time there was no hot water. Bathroom was stuck. Bathroom sink was clogged. Kitchen didn't have a stove. We had the heater on as it was cold and it constantly made thins very loud knocking sound Our bed felt old and uncomfortable and the small red couch was also old, hard, and it had what it looked like a lot of dog hairs. I would not recommend.

My husband and I traveled to Big Bear in hope of a fun/romantic vacation. We stayed at Lakewood Cabins and it was anything but fun as when we got there the floor was dirty we planned on doing small cooking but there was no stove and no utensils (luckily we took some utensils and Dave the manager being so kind let us borrow a small portable mini burner). At night one tree kept rubbing against the cabin making lots of noise. Also we had the heater on as it was winter and every 1-2 hrs it made thins very loud knocking sound(the neighbors' heater did the same as we could hear it too). Also the front door looked like it had been broken into before (We felt unsafe). Our bed felt old and uncomfortable and the small red couch was also old, hard, and it had what it looked like a lot of dog hairs. The kitchen table is tiny and unstable and the chairs are a couple of mini stools for like a 4 year old. AVOID these cabins, don't waste your time and money.

We got the studio cabin room, # 11, we like to stay close to downtown big bear, so we dont have to drive, this place was a short 10 min walk to downtown, its down on a quiet street. the cabins look like little small houses, its cute. our cabin had a woodburning fireplace, but you need to supply your own wood. had a chair and a loveseat, so its good for 1 or 2 people only, has a little kitchen, just a toaster over, microwave and small frig, they supply a few coffee cups, and some silverware, they have a full size coffee machine, but dont supply any coffee or stuff for your coffee. bathroom was pretty standard, they dont supply any travel shampoos or no hairdryer, so make sure you bring your own, the bed had a foam mattress topper, it was pretty comfortable, but the pillows were horrible, too soft and kinda flat, so the second night i had to use one of the decorative pillows which i dont like to use because most places dont launder them, and it kinda grosses me out, but i needed some sleep so i put it under the regular pillow just for some leverage, they have tables and stuff outside for everyone to use, if you want to get some nice fresh air, heater worked pretty good in the room, overall not a bad stay, maybe a few things could use some updating, and maybe would be nice if they supplied coffee and bathroom things, and some new pillows, but we would stay here again.

This is a nice quiet place to stay in Big Bear. If you're looking for a 4 star resort, this is not your place. If you like a little rustic cabin in a quiet location this will work. Close to Big Bear City and the lake. Rates are very reasonable!

Thoroughly enjoyed our 6 nights at Big Bear on Poplar Lake. Cabins were super clean, cozy, and nicely decorated. You won't be roughing it here. The lodge is gorgeous and welcoming with hosts Andy and Ida to make you feel right at home. Homemade pizzas were super-delicious accompanied by a nice assortment of beer to quench our thirst. Looking forward to staying in one of the 3 lodge rooms this fall. This is a place you just don't want to leave. (double thumbs up) - Another HUGE advantage to staying at Big Bear is Trail Center Restaurant is 3 minutes away for home-cooked food, desserts, and custom sundaes. YUM

My love and I have been looking to getaway from our hectic city life. Both of us have stressful and demanding careers that do not allow for much quiet time (unless we are sleeping) We needed a place were we could getaway, put our electronic devices down and just enjoy each others company. We booked a cabin at Lakewood through priceline. I must admit I was a bit hesitant because of the extremely reasonable rates. Upon arriving to Big Bear City I called the cabin manager Dave to get directions to the cabins. Dave not only gave me directions, he stayed on the phone with me until I got to the cabins. He waived us down and led us to the front door of our cabin. The cabin was what I would expect a cabin to be rustic and quaint. The linen was so CLEAN. My pet peeve is dingy towels. The linen looked better than in some high end hotels 'I've stayed at. The property manager Dave was very helpful and pleasant. I had to call him to room to get our gas stove on and for a remote for a T.V. He was at our room within minutes with a big smile assuring he was a phone a phone call away if we needed him. We will definitely be returning soon.

Be aware of this dump. My friends and I planned a snowboarding trip in big bear. We picked this place because it had 3.5 stars, which normally isn't that bad, and it was one of the cheapest cabins we could find. There was liquid stains on the tiny couch and it was dusty like it has never been cleaned. There was dust everywhere, no cable TV, the only channel we could get was a Spanish channel. The bathroom floor creaked because the tiles were broken and unstable and the shower leaked water everywhere. The place just looked like it had never been cleaned thoroughly. On top of all of this they make their guests sweep, clean the stove, wipe the counters down and strip all beds of their linens themselves. Take my advice and spend the extra money to stay somewhere nicer and cleaner.

This accommodation could do with some updating but was pretty clean, warm and a great location. The guy running it was helpful - providing two eco logs to have a fire when we arrived to freezing Temperatures. Everything works and the bed was really comfortable. If you want a budget price and a great base to explore Big Bear we would highly recommend Lakewood Cabins.

I loved the place. Me and my hunny went there for a weekend getaway to escape the madness of the city of Las Vegas for a while.The cabin was simple but cozy. It's clean and it had plenty of space for 2 people. I was hoping for something a little more remote but it was quiet despite being near everything. It doesn't have A/C but you don't really need it because it stays cool even in summer months. It does have a fireplace but we didn't use it. The staff was ok and nice. It has sort of a kitchen with a fridge toaster oven and a microwave and a coffee maker. It was good enough for me. Overall I me and the wife loved it. If you mostly stay at the hilton or other high end places and expect luxury and room service it might not be for you but if you want something simple and quiet and cozy it's great!!!!!
