Cozy and Comfortable
We recently used Destination Big Bear to book our cabin, the Lions Lakefront house. The overall experience was great! The booking procedure was quick and easy. The cabin was decorated very nice with a Lion flare and the bedrooms, baths, kitchen and game room were wonderful. We had a great fireplace with a cozy family room. Plenty of room and clean. This experience gave our family a great memory and one that we won't forget ever! I would highly recommend Destination Big Bear when booking a cabin in Big Bear Lake.

Better than advertised
The cabin that we stayed in was Lions lakefront escape and it was very spacious and offered so much! When our party arrived at the cabin it was amazing. It was better than expected with a game room, large spaces, plenty of bedrooms, outdoor Jacuzzi, lake views and on the lake! My favorite part was the kitchen. It had everything and more! This was a luxury accommodation and we will be coming back! Five stars!!!

Amazing StayGuest comment entered by manager
We had an amazing stay at Lions Lakefront thanks to Destination Big Bear. The cabin was immaculate and there was everything we needed. The price was appropriate, especially where we were staying. We were right by the lake and within a walking distance to Holloway's Marina. I will definitely go back for another vacation using Destination Big Bear. Lions lakefront is a 5 star getaway!

Too Short!Guest comment entered by manager
We had the grandest time at this estate. Beautiful, high end, rich decor (although not what you expect from a mountain or a lake home - more European), but very very nice. The fireplace is so beautiful! The lake views are impressive as well - almost everything room had a view and the price was so worth it! I would book here again. Very comfortable and perfect for the pickiest people. I highly recommend!

Amazing Lakefront Estate!Guest comment entered by manager
Amazing Lakefront Estate!
We came up to Big Bear for my birthday celebration and rented this cabin from Destination Big Bear! They were absolutely great! We had a party of 16 which the cabin accommodated perfectly, with plenty of space for all of us comfortably. The most amazing feature has got to be the Theater! We had a blast watching movies on the big screen. The furnishings in the house were amazing, we will be renting this place again during my birthday weeki for sure next year!
