The renovation for our first phase of guest rooms was completed in 2021  and improvements to our public areas is ongoing.  


We strive to provide uncompromising personal service, a relaxing vintage style experience, luxury amenities, thoughtful artwork and designer inspired rooms.  Some rooms even feature partial lake views.  We are supporters of sustainable energy and even offer complimentary Tesla EV charging stations.  Come cozy up in the woods and experience Sierra Blue in Big Bear Lake, CA. 


We are just under 3 miles from the Bear Mountain and Snow Summit Ski Resorts for Skiing, Snowboarding, Tubing, Sledding and Snow Play and so close to Los Angeles.
