    Great price and location

    Dog friendly private cabins right on the water.

    Such a great experience!

    We got a two-bedroom standalone cabin, which was lovely, cozy, and clean. The cabin had a full kitchen, the thermostat worked perfectly, and there were plenty of windows so we could make use of the natural light. We have two large dogs who had never traveled before, so I wanted to make sure we wouldn't share walls and have the dogs freaking out over unfamiliar noise on their first trip. Plus, the woman that worked at the front desk was absolutely lovely, and made our stay even more enjoyable. We'll definitely be back!

    Great location

    The lodge was an absolute PERFECT location. It was for enough into the area but just outside of the main village traffic. We walked to the village shops many times which was supper helpful since the traffic on a holiday weekend can get a bit crazy.

    We had to 2 labs. The room we had was nice. It was not a cabin. Had a great view of the lake. They are currently in the process of renovating and we got one of the rooms that had the newly upgraded. Had nice vinyl floors and a nice upgraded bathroom. The room was comfy. The dogs enjoyed the room. They were able to find space to appropriately relieved themselves without issues.

    My only suggestion would be for them to equip the rooms with a swifter! Hah! You just track in a lot of dirt and gravel- it just comes with the territory of being on a mountain.

    Great place!

    This was a great place to stay, the 1 bedroom cabin was small and quaint but comfortable. The reception at the front desk was sweet & had a great sense of humor. She let us know that the 2-bedroom cabins were undergoing a huge renovation, the hotel rooms in the inn portion were all redone with flooring & all modern but we prefer bigger suites with the kids & dogs. They said the 1-bedroom cabins will be done after the 2-bedrooms. There’s a lot of walking at the beach area. It’s walking distance to Big Bear Village.

    Awesome Location

    We booked a little anniversary get away and had a wonderful time. We rented a queen studio, which was a little too small. Next time we’ll book a one-bedroom. I loved that our front porch had a locking gate so our pup could hang out in the porch whenever he wanted. Also, the close proximity to the village was great!

    Great little place and everybody friendly

    Our babies loved this place! Plenty of space to walk and most every restaurant has a dog friendly patio. We mostly walked nearby, got food to go and ate out on the cabin patio or picnic tables that are on site. Check in was easy, but didn't get a printed receipt when we checked out. We were told it would be e-mailed. Have not seen the e-mail yet (checked out 24 hours ago). We actually liked that no one cleaned the room while there. We don't like strangers in the room when we're not there. We were able to ask for towels and sheets when needed.

    Perfect Hotel to stay with your dog

    There is nothing better than arriving at a hotel and knowing that your pet is welcome and can walk everywhere next to you. And with so many places in the city accepting pets, it is a great idea to take your puppy with you and have a blast.

    great location

    So nice to have area around the room to walk the dog, picnic tables, corn hole, horse shoes, ping pong games were great additions! Not to mention pool. Quiet area, able to walk to the Village.

    Great location

    We rented the 1 bedroom cabin with our 2 dogs. The bedroom is large and the fireplace in the bedroom was very nice. I was actually glad the carpets were not perfect because we had our dogs. We did clean their feet after every walk out in the snow but theh still were kinda dirty.
    The bed was super comfortable. We loved being close to the lake. If there wasn't 2 feet of snow ther would be a nice grass area for the dogs with poop bags provided as well. We will definitely be coming back.
    Just some minor things. The wifi wasn't working at the time and the livingroom space was super super tiny so definitely not for a family.
    (Which is was just my husband and I and the 2 dogs so we were fine. Just letting others know).

    Great location, very sweet cabin

    These cabins were very clean and spacious. The staff was super friendly at check in. We are eager to stay here again in the near future!

    It was okay, but not worth the price.

    My sister and I decided to take our two dogs (one 13+ year old Siberian Husky and one 2 year old Great Pyrenees) to Big Bear to escape the chaos of 4th of July in the valley. For one night, the rate was high - even if it was a holiday - when the resort was clearly not full. The website boasts that the resort has been completely remodeled, but our unit came complete with a lamp with broken parts, a ceiling fan that made constant loud clicking noises, and a DVD player that only played in black and white (but the TV itself worked fine).
    We walked the pups numerous times during our brief stay and I don't recall seeing any pet stations as noted on the website either. There are no screen doors on the units and no clear indication that there is no a/c when booking. It was very warm and opening the windows was just not enough when paired with the tiny ceiling fans. If the units had screen doors, it would allow much more cool air to circulate while keeping the pups indoors.
    To top it off, our "neighbors" left their pup (totally allowed) in their unit while they left for several hours. The dog NEVER STOPPED BARKING the entire time they were gone. Very annoying.
    While we will continue our plan of getting away for the 4th to try and protect our pups, I don't think we'll be returning to Big Bear Frontier any time soon. It's just not worth the cost.

    Fantastic stay!

    Reading some of the reviews we were a bit apprehensive about staying in a BBF cabin, but it went beyond our expectations. We brought our 4 month old corgi and the queen studio cabin was roomy and comfortable for all 3 of us, with a full kitchen perfect for when we didn’t feel like dealing with the hassle of finding a dog-friendly patio in the winter. The TV was also a huge perk for when it was too cold to do anything outside. Very dog friendly, with a little park right outside and stunning views of the lake. The only thing was the temperature was kind of finnicky, with the heater being either way too warm or freezing, but we brought along a mini fan and it was fine.

    Very Happy

    2nd time visiting, both Summer and winter offer different activities. Summer we stayed down by the water, awesome. Winter closer to the office with the jetted tub and fireplace, very happy. both visits our doggy was very happy too. Staff is too kind and very pet friendly. Of coarse we'll be returning again, close to the village for shopping and eating in a dog friendly town.
