Great stays for many years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

Our church's youth group has stayed at the Royal Canadian Lodge for several years in a row now. We have found it to be an ideal place for 20-30 students and adults. The facilities are well-maintained, clean, and spacious. The manager and landlord were easy to work with. And our time at the lodge has produced many wonderful memories. The bunkhouse on the bottom floor is a real treat (sleeping 14 people in 7 super-high bunk beds). Overall, great place and location (extremely close to Snow Summit).

Amazing cabin that comfortable fit 40 people among the three floors. We loved the two kitchens, the bunkhouse, and the heated floors even more. There was a day when we did not leave the cabin and were still able to enjoy the snow hills around us and go sledding. I'd recommend to large groups of any ages!

Big Bear Lodge

Our group had a really great time and loved the lodge. Great for both adults & kids. We had 38 people staying 2 nights and yet it never felt like it was too crowded. Location was slightly remote yet close enough to town if we needed anything.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

Royal Canadian Lodge is perfect for us. We are a family of 32 (13 adults and 19 grand children) and the accommodations are ideal, especially the 24 bed bunk room for all the grandchildren, who play downstairs while the adults visit upstairs. It's a great opportunity for family love, sharing, and bonding as we play games, puzzles, have a talent night, bake-off contest, as well as enjoy the outdoor activities Big Bear has to offer. We have already booked our next visit, our third!

Great place for group event & family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This is an absolutely OMG get-away choice for extended families and large group friends, plenty of space, numerous beds, well equipped, great for adults and kids. Remarkable views, very convenient location, trails, and recreational spots are all comfortably nearby, we had a great time, everyone from 5 year old kids, party goers, to 80 year old seniors, kitchen has plentiful to offer, multiple function rooms and countless beds. We're almost completely happy with this unforgettable place except what we experienced the last few moments before we checked out, only to find out trash bags were our responsibility which was written in the rental paperwork but not informed or communicated to us when we signed the contract, but no one was as that scrutiny when signing paperwork, anyway, we're certain this will improve and not an issue with the next tenant. Will definitely consider coming back

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear you all enjoyed your stay and thank you very much for considering another special occasion at the beautiful Royal Canadian Lodge! Our contracts are very extensive and detail all rules and requirements that all guest must abide by. Many rules are in place that are mandated by San Bernardino County and in place to benefit the town of Big Bear, it's community and wild life.
