1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
Golden Bear Cottages was originally opened as a fishing and hunting lodge in 1917 and full resort lodge in 1927. It has been continually operating since then. Multiple cabin construction was started in 1915. Over the years it has become a historic landmark in Big Bear Lake. Don and Karen DiCarlo and Lisa and Len Duran are only the fifth private family to own this property in over 90 years (purchased by this family in 1999). These historic resort cabins at our AAA approved lodging property are easily identifiable as a group of free-standing rental cabins at 39367 Big Bear Blvd. in Big Bear Lake. Golden Bear Cottages can easily be recognized as its own quaint mountain village of one to seven bedroom cabin accommodations.  Bring your family or group and enjoy the outdoor spa, heated pool and unique non-hotel outdoor recreation areas. AAA approved cabins and Travel website:

7. What are the best compliments this travel company has received from a client?

"Very flexible, courteous, friendly ownership! My friends and I are serving in the U.S. Navy stationed in San Diego and we travel to Golden Bear Cottages on weekends in the Winter whenever our schedule allows. Instead of making the 3-hour drive back to San Diego one day, we decided to rent a nice big cabin. Golden Bear Cottages Resort just happened to be the first place we stopped, and we have been in love with it since. Once, we were snowed in on the mountain and we couldn't leave, and they gave us a generous discount on our cottage to ease our burden".   Signed, Mike Mitchell and friends in the U.S. Navy. San Diego, CA
"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. You always provide our group the best place to stay. The Tempur-Pedic beds are amazing! Thanks again for the late check-outs for group members who had later travel arrangements back to San Francisco. Your resort property and variety of cabin sizes, big and small, is always perfect for our group planning retreats. We will see you again for our next group event in Southern California.'   Jacquelyn Lindeman, California Youth Connection" San Francisco, CA
