Located exactly 1 mile north of Big Bear (on the same road), the Northwoods Lodge is a 2-story log lodge in a beautiful and peaceful setting where rustic goes first class! With only 16 rooms, it has the quaintness of a Bed & Breakfast, but also the privacy of a motel.
All rooms are themed "northwoods" with log beds, log furniture, wildlife art, and even a pine tree! Room amenities include microwave/mini-refrigerator, in-room phone w/ free local calls, clock radio, and Cable TV. A Free enhanced Continental Breakfast is included ("cook-your-own" Belgian Waffles, coffee, orange juice, cereal, bagels, breads, doughnuts, and more!) A gorgeous honeymoon suite w/ in-room Jacuzzi is available, as well as Non-Smoking rooms and a Barrier-Free Room. There is a centrally-located, cozy lobby w/ fireplace, 2 leather couches, magazines, TV, "Up North" Gift Shop, and 3 log tables and chairs (perfect for playing cards or checkers!) There is also Ice, Pop, and Guest Laundry. Roll-aways & Cribs are available, and there are a few specific rooms that accept Pets (please ask).
