"Perfect for groups!" We really enjoyed our recent group visit at Golden Bear Cottages! It was perfect with each family in our group having their own space and plenty of areas to meet up for fun and food. The staff was very friendly and always willing to make sure our stay was comfortable. Can't wait to go back to the best Big Bear Lake large group cabins! Thanks to all"

"For our returning group: another great retreat at Golden Bear Cottages in Big Bear Lake. Once again, thank you so much for an amazing stay. We always appreciate all the extra service, and sincerely love your hospitality and friendliness. Each of our group leaders commented that each member of your staff were so accommodating to us. Thanks again for the late check-outs for group members who had later travel arrangements back to San Francisco. Your resort property and big variety of cabin sizes is always perfect for our group planning retreats. We will see you again for our next group event.'

Group Retreat Review
Rating: 5 Stars
"We rented out one of their larger cabins for a young adult retreat from our church. Booking was really easy, and Lisa was really helpful. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed for our weekend. None of the usual pitfalls of group cabins: low water pressure or unpredictable temperature fluctuations. Those things were a big deal for our group. Definitely one of the best places to stay with group facilities. We had a great time sitting around the tables in the kitchen playing games and talking. They had nice appliances for all the food prep we did, and plenty of kitchenware. It's close to Big Bear Village and the Alpine Slide, so we had the flexibility of making up our schedule as we felt like it. We even decided to visit the on-site jacuzzi, and the managers went out of their way to make sure we could access it even though the operating hours had ended. I'd recommend this Christian family owned place to other church groups for their retreats. It's not uber-modern so if you like flat screen TVs, this historic place probably isn't for you. It was perfect for our group's needs, and we enjoyed our long weekend there! "

"Great Times at the Golden Bear Cottages" Review of Golden Bear Cottages Resort by the Vasquez family. I had wanted to take my mom and dad to Golden Bear Cottages, located in beautiful Big Bear Lake, 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 for vacation 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. It is just an hour from home, yet it is exactly like being in an entirely different world! The weather was perfect, in the low to mid seventies, while the weather at home was in the high nineties. The evenings were clear and crisp - the first time we had worn light jackets in months! 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. The staff bent over backwards to make sure 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'" Derrick Vasquez Colton 09-11-2010

''Thank you, Golden Bear Cottages for your special attention during our recent 80 th birthday family group celebration. We were referred by AAA Travel and always appreciate their recommendations. My wife Eileen was so appreciative for the gift basket, and the dinner reservations for our big family group were superb. We can't wait to come back to see you soon. We should be back to rent some big cabins for the winter holidays. Next time we will plan to have the whole group for a family reunion. Anthony and Eileen from East Highlands Ranch, CA"

"Golden Bear Cottages is a nice large size property with lots of big pine trees. Lots of cottages and cabins and with areas to gather and picnic etc. They are family operated and have been in business for years. Golden Bear's located near the beautiful west end of the lake yet close enough to the village, lake and slopes. The cabins/cottages/rooms are great for anyone- individuals, couples, families or friends. With lots of space and different lodging options available they will also accommodate groups and reunions etc. The cabins are clean and have the necessary amenities for a mountain stay. You can pick from a variety of AAA approved cabin sizes and prices. Golden Bear is convenient and access is quick and easy to find after driving up the mountain. We refer family or friends and visitors here as well and we all enjoy our experience. Lisa usually answers our phone calls or she's at the desk and she is always super helpful with any arrangements we have made for ourselves or others! Thank you Golden Bear for reliable & consistent group lodging & the greatest service in Big Bear Lake. Mickey Marzell., is a Yelp Reviewer"
