Big Bear Lake is only a 20-minute walk or three-minute drive from our lodging. Hop on a boat and get a wonderful tour of the nice area, or you can water ski, wakeboard, knee board and other fun water-related activities. You can even visit Big Bear Lake in the winter to try your hand at ice fishing for trout or whitefish. If you're looking to walk around the lake, you can do so in both winter or summer as the area is great for photography all year long. Many people love hiking the various trails near the lake. 


What a lovely, lovely place run by the loveliest people! We stayed in room 11 which had two bedrooms, a bathroom, small kitchen, and living room. Plenty of space for my friend and I to have a fun summer Big Bear getaway. Not to mention the fabulous DVD selections for cute movie nights in. Katie runs the place with grace and for the room and entities the price is such a steal. In the heart of big bear so some places are walking distance otherwise nothing is too far of a drive. Will definitely be coming back! OH and definitely book on the website because the prices are lower there than any other booking site.

Hillcrest Lodge is a great place to stay!!! The owners Katie and Mickie are amazing hosts!!! They are friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back. The lodge is located in a quiet neighborhood, close to restaurants, Alpine Slide and at walking distance of the Big Bear Lake.
