Big Bear vacation for our family was the perfect getaway and Golden Bear Cottages was the perfect place. A quiet rustic cabin is what we wanted. The staff suggested one when we called to reserve. When we got there it was just like they described; it was great! After spending a week vacationing with other Christian families, we were not ready to go home. Now that we are home, we are still thinking about those great times at Golden Bear Cottages. We reccommend this rustic family resort. It is a great value. Thanks to all the great staff. We are going back very soon

Reserved a cabin for 4th of July weekend. FYI the pool is only open until 5pm on weekdays, and it is unsupervised so kids of all ages and with diapers, use the pool. the beds are old and creeky, some lights and outlets don't work and the fridge never got very cold. They did bring us towels and paper goods daily. A bit pricey for what you are getting. Needs a lot of improvements.

Review: This past weekend was our first visit to Golden Bear Cottages. It was perfect for our family of 5.. We were upgraded to a large comfortable cabin without even asking... The 'Shaggy Bear' cabin was a beautiful family friendly cabin, clean and well stocked with clean towels and kitchen utensils. The owner is very sweet and gracious.. We can not wait to return... My boys (15, 13 and 5) are already asking when can go back and we just came back home yesterday! Looking forward to our next trip to Big Bear and the Golden Bear Cottages. We give a top accommodations review to Golden Bear Cottages.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Golden Bear cottages. Two kids & the dog, we went up during the week in the summer. They were very accommodating and friendly. The pool was a plus for the kids. Used the BBQ grill and even invited the other family we met there for dinner.

I have been taking groups of 15-20 people up to Big Bear for the past 3 years and we have stayed at Golden Bear Cottages Resort every year. Their cabins are great and there are so many sizes to choose from. The staff is kind and can help you out in all of your activities. From hiking, skiing, or snowshoeing, they can direct you. The staff is also like family. We actually made cookies one year and invited Golden Bear's handyman over for a sweet dessert with us! Family owned and right down the street from the slopes, Golden Bear is a great getaway for any family, church group, or adventurer. Thanks for the memories to Don and the staff!!

"Top Rating. I contacted Golden Bear Cottages in behalf of my husband and his strike team who were fighting the Butler 2 fire. His team, consisting of 22 firefighters with 5 engines was in need of a good nights sleep after sleeping in parking lots for three nights. The folks at Golden Bear Cottages could not have been more helpful. They set aside enough cottages to meet the firefighter's needs and in addition offered them rates that were affordable. Great service! God bless you too!!! Thanks."

Our family enjoyed a wonderful family reunion this summer at Golden Bear Cottages. Their staff was extremely helpful throughout the year-long planning process of the reunion. Each individual family was made to feel special by everyone from the owners, to the front office staff, to the maids and maintenance people. We were treated like royalty as a group with every request being taken care of promptly and professionally. The cabins were beautifully clean and so charming! Everyone had such a great time that we are already planning another family reunion for next year at Golden Bear. Our family came from all over the US and this is the only place that we have ever liked so much that we plan to make it an annual Golden Bear Cottages reunion!

Vasquez family review. I had wanted to take my mom and dad to Golden Bear Cottages, for a long time. I had heard very positive things about this resort for a long time. Since so many of my family members wanted to go along as well, we decided to rent the biggest cottage at the resort. That way we could have family coming and going all week and would have room for everybody. We live in nearby Southern California cities so this getaway is perfect for us. The weather was perfect, in the low to mid seventies, while the weather at home was in the high nineties. Our cabin was perfect for our family. We had plenty of room in the huge kitchen for everybody who wanted to cook in our family ?chicken cook off? to join in! There was a huge dining room that seats 22 plus a great game room with poker tables, a pool table, and a foosball table. Our three level cottage was comfortable for all who either came to visit or for everyone who stayed for the week. Many of our family members spent much of the week at the beautiful Golden Bear pool and outdoor spa. The setting in the centuries old pine trees is breathtaking! The kids played ping-pong, basketball, volleyball, and other sports at the resort. There was even a great playground for the small kids. Golden Bear has a gift shop, movie rentals, a huge selection of board games, card games, and karaoke plus a library of new hardback books for those who may forget to bring something to read. We had never seen so many great amenities at a vacation destination. Our entire experience at Golden Bear Cottages was just wonderful! We will definitely make this an annual event for our family, one that we will all look forward to. All of our needs were met. The housekeeping staff and the front office staff made us feel at home, providing great service with smiles and even hugs! I highly recommend Golden Bear Cottages to anyone who wants a wonderful get-a-way for their family and friends. We?ll be back! Signed, 'luvtotravelDV'

Pros: A great family experience

Cons: we had to go back home after only a week

What a blessing it was to find this place in Big Bear Lake! With our hectic schedule in the city, we needed a place to relax and spend quality time together. Golden Bear is the place! It is close to home (only about an hour), but it is like a different world. The people at the resort are so friendly. They even ask if they can do special things for you. They treated our 3 children like they were their own, and treated us like family. That's refreshing! We plan to go back in the winter too, so our kids can enjoy the snow.

We recently had a family reunion at Golden Bear Cottages. We have a home in Big Bear, but wanted a nice place to stay for all of our family. We picked the perfect spot. Golden Bear is clean, friendly and has everything. We loved the family movie nights at the pool. And I had the best massage in the salon. Thankyou to the owners Don, Karen,Michael and Lisa

We have been going to Big Bear since I was a little kid. My family always stayed at Golden Bear Cottages. Now that we have our own family we stay there too. Over the years, this property has turned into a full resort. The DiCarlo's and Duran's, who own Golden Bear Cottages just keeping adding great things to do at the resort. Along with all the outdoor activities, they now have "Family Movie Nights" at the pool and spa. You can also book a massage in the salon at unbelievably low prices. We tell our friends that we vacation at Golden Bear Cottages, and many of their families do too. Thankyou, Golden Bear Cottages
