Top tips for finding the perfect Big Bear Lake hotel

If you’re looking for a hotel with a view, stick to the hotels on the edge of the lake area. Because the ski resort is south of the lake, many of the hotel options are south of the lake as well. Hotels like Marina Resort and the Fireside Lodge offer stunning vistas right outside your window.
Hotels in Big Bear Lake are surrounded by stunning mountains. For those seeking adventure, most of the hotels, cabins and vacation homes that are close to mountains are North, South and West of Big Bear Lake. There are mountain cottages and cabins to the east, but they’re a little further from the village and the airport.
Many travelers come to Big Bear Lake for the popular Snow Summit Ski Resort. Many of the larger hotels in the area offer shuttles to Snow Summit, and there are several small lodges and cottages nearby, but the closest hotel is the Best Western Big Bear Chateau hotel.
Big Bear Lake’s high seasons are in the summer and winter because of the lake and the town’s resident ski resort. If you don’t mind being further from town, you can avoid the crowds and get a better deal by checking out hotels located on the North and West sides of the lake.
Traveling in a large group? There is a long list of options in the area that can ensure you and your party have comfortable accommodation for your stay. Pine Knot Ranch and several other accommodation options provide large vacation homes and cabins to accommodate up to 12 people.
