My husband, son and I traveled to Big Bear for Oktoberfest and stayed in the Beaver cabin of the Grey Squirrel Resort. When we arrived, we were informed that we didn't need a key and were given a key code. Once we unlocked the cabin, we discovered that the room had no deadbolt or chain on the door, which would...

This is a decent place to stay in Big Bear lake area. They have many cabins. There is parking in front of each cabin making it very convenient. Nothing spectacular about this place. We chose this place because it is pet friendly we have two big dogs. This place is also family friendly. There is a small playground for children....

We have stayed here 3 times because the grounds feel like a park. Grass lawns, kids playgrounds, volleyball court, and beautiful trees. However, room preparation is very lacking. Our room had all the windows open, allowing a coating of dirt/dust everywhere. The tv cable didn't work the entire stay. Ground keepers blew dirt with their blowers onto parked cars and...

Have visited many times in the past, but now the place is under new ownership and WOW has it changed (and not for the better). Furniture used to be "like a cabin"and very cozy and comfy and now it is modern and very uncomfortable! Kitchen is stocked, but limited amount of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, many of the cooking...

An odd tale to tell. We had booked our particular cabin months ago - we have stayed at Grey Squirrel before (pre-Trip Advisor days) and found it enjoyable. This time it was disappointing. There clearly was renovation work going on as there was exposed slabs of plywood and inoperative heaters. Nails protruded from frames and walls. Maybe a victim of...

We have been staying at Grey Squirrel cabins for over 10 years. I have stayed in many cabins on property and also stayed in a private home this past weekend. I always have a great experience with the homes. They are affordable and family friendly. I always recommend Grey Squirrel to friends and family when coming to Big Bear. Also...

My husband and I decided to rent a private home for New Years 2016 and we are so happy we found Lily bear lodging/Grey Squirrel resort.

Let's face it, this isn't a five star resort and one should not expect one. The beds were well worn and the couch wasn't the best, but for a rustic cabin in big bear, it was fantastic. The kitchen is fully stocked (ok, there were only 2 steak knives) but had other essentials. Staff was friendly and it being the...
