This Lodge was totally adorable and the staff was so friendly! The facility was super clean, had great amenities, and was close to town. The sites were not super private and laid out a little weird. I would suggest some bigger layout of spots. Overall we did enjoy our time at Big Bear Mountain Hostel

Really cool spot, extremely friendly staff and loved the big old mountain dog, Yogi. Great room with the fireplace was amazing.

Great place for a glamping or Lodge experience! Kitchen, bathrooms and showers are all adequate, water was hot and pressure is good. Yogi the dog is the sweetest. Walking distance to the lake, stores, etc. This is a great place to party, celebrate and or hangout with a bunch of friends. Loved the breakfast included with eggs, waffles and much more.

Only con was that there is a lot of noisy lake traffic, but that is outside of their control.
