We came up Lagonita Lodge to take advantage of free time to getaway. My friend has a timeshare here so it was a perfect launch site to a wonderful weekend. We stayed in room 207. It had a queen bed in one room and a pull out bed in the other. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and... More

Lagonita Lodge is a time share as well as rental of 1 -2 bedroom units with kitchen, fireplace and balcony. Most rooms have a view of the lake. There are plenty of activities planned so you won't be bored. They offer several bus tours of the area each week at no cost to their guests. Welcome reception, pancake breakfast, several... More

So I am so glad that I didn't let the other reviews on this place keep me away. They work hard here to keep the guests entertained. Yesterday, I took the lake cruise and was very well informed by our guide. Today, I took the bus tour (with the same guide and some of the same jokes). I am glad... More

Spent a week here for a late summer R&R and to roam the San Bernardino mountains.. Unfortunately lake level is 15' down so there is no swim beach. Great staff. Well maintained property. Large list of lodge sponsored activities, most free. Indoor pool and spa plus an outdoor spa. Elevators but no A/C or ceiling fans. One bdrm has the... More

We have been going to Lagonita Lodge for 15 years now. Many of the rooms are in the process of being redone. We stayed in the Lake side BEARVIEW is what they are called right near the playground. We have also stayed in the Lakeview which have 2 baths (a nice luxury). Our room had new granite tile in the... More

Thinking there was a room available at the last minute, we stopped in here. Unfortunately we were wrong, but the desk clerk was friendly and said we were welcome to walk around and see the place. This is tucked away in the trees at one end of the lake (not by itself, lots of homes nearby), so you don't get... More

We have been owners at Lagonita Lodge for over 20 years, and it always is a favorite destination for us. The best spot on the entire lake. Great views, nice rooms, indoor pool, amazing recreation room. Great for kids

Lagonita Lodge gets a five star review from us, because we found the sum of our experience outweighed the parts. Lagonita Lodge is not a new place and the kitchen is small, but it's easy to get past those facts when you add in the friendly staff, the on-and-off site activities schedule, and the fact that you're situated right on...

I bought a Groupon for a two night stay in one of their condos. Check-in was great and Ernesto at front desk was so friendly and helpful. The condo overlooked the lake and was perfect! We only stayed 2 nights, but we really enjoyed staying there.
