We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the giant oaks lodge. It's a great location and with it's cute town right next to it, this nice and cozy, adorable lodge is just perfect. We'll be coming back again for sure!(:

Over priced no parking worst of all housekeeper handed me the bedding when I requested bed be changed. Didn't offer to refresh room after week stay. Only good thing was the girl that does yardwork returned my wallet and glasses I'd dropped while unloading car. She also helped carry my luggage and wouldn't accept a tip. 11/14

I had high hopes for this place, even though we rented out the last available cabin and it was quite small (~200 sq. ft) for $140. The setting of the property is beautiful, especially when covered in snow. Where things fell apart was when the 'original' gas furnace quit working at bedtime. Knowing a fair amount about HVAC, I opened...

I have a daughter that had worked for Susa and Gary, she no longer works for them they are both drunks and don't care about their guest in any way. They leave the storage door open where all the sheets and bedding is and the cats on the property lay all over the clean sheets and so due to that...

I absolutely loved staying at Giant Oaks. It was clean, quiet, and clearly the owners take pride in their property. I've stayed in many places from Lake Arrowhead to Big Bear and this one, by far, is my favorite. The location is excellent! Running Springs is located in middle of Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear so we were able to...

I stayed recently at the Giant Oaks Lodge, and while apprehensive at first in what appeared to be a limited option market, my doubts were quickly dispelled. On arrival to the hotel, when I informed the lady at the desk I was suffering a knee injury, she immediately changed my room to a more accessible one so I would not...

We arrived late and very tired after a long drive. Got a very friendly welcome plus a discount on the room although we probably would have taken it for much higher price aswell, because we were pretty exhausted.

I worked for this place for only two weeks, and fired. I believe I was fired due to my consistent nagging about Susa and Gary having to make certain repairs, and keeping the blankets clean. DO NOT ever use the blankets, or dust covers to sleep. They do not clean them for months at a time. The only thing we...

“Choose a CABIN! Please! It may be a few dollars more, but just do it! The Jacuzzi, the fireplace the quiet privacy, the swiss alps decor, the kitchenette, the patio, the snow outside - the definition of romance! !!! Be sure to ask the best way to fill up the Jacuzzi to save time !!”
  • One of the best Jacuzzi / Tub experiences in my life. Better then 4 star Vegas Jacuzzi's.
  • Cozy...ohh soo COZY. If only you could see the tall ceiling and huge Alpine windows!
