OK, the location is great. Been coming to Big Bear for over 20 years. Stayed in LakeFront 110. Haven't been in this cabin for abou 10 years . . . it looked like it hadn't been touched in that long. Dirty. Worn. Funky. Just yuck. The total price, including a crazy $115 cleaning fee, came to over $400 for ONE... More

I must add my vote to the "Terrible" end of the spectrum. If you are looking for "quaint" "rustic" or "nostalgic", you might be happy here. If you are looking for clean linens, enough interior light to read or use the bathroom mirror, sufficient electrical power to use any two appliances or lights at one time, or enough paved area...

My husband and I have been going to Big Bear for about 40 years. Since we hadn't been there for 9 years, we decided to go back and stay at Shore Acres as we had several times before. When we first tried to book a cabin, we were stunned at the price increase but we wanted a dock for our... More

Don't be fooled by the description and even some of the pics. We booked the 3 bedroom cabin, #100 and oh boy, what a complete joke this was. The website says that you can check in early if the place is ready. Well, we got to the office in town at 2:20 PM, 40 Mins before check in. We didn't... More

This review is a little overdue since we went there back in April over Easter weekend. We booked through the Big Bear Vacations website and I can honestly say that we will NEVER stay at this spot again. At first glance on the website the property looks super kitschy and outdoorsy but once you see it in person, it is... More

This was our first visit with Big Bear Lake and dont know where to go!!! We searched online and we found Shore Acre Lodge. At first we were so excited with the place but we got disappointed. Our first disappointment was upon entering the lodge, there were groups of people partying and drinking in the driveway and wont let us... More

Shore Acres was a horrific experience for us. We were put into a cabin that we later learned had been a storage shed for years, and in fact half of it still was. The furniture was stained, smelled and was dirty, the pouch had rotted carpet and wood, it sagged, stepping on the front part of the cabin’s floor caused... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and had a great time. It's a great time if you like to relax inside or outside of the cabin. It's a great location, walking distance to the lake to fish, swim or just relax. we will be back soon, this time with the kids !!!

Needing a break from the heat we headed up the mountain to our cabin. It was in prime condition with wireless internet and cable tv, but most importantly was the soothing views of the lake a stone throw away from our porch. Our dog was completely at home, and loved the fact that the Grand View Vista hike started a... More
