We do this through encouraging guests to explore the outdoors and providing FREE hot breakfasts and home cooked dinners. Daily activities include archery, hiking, boating in the summer, hiking, yoga and more! Nestled into the heart of Big Bear, our rustic Mountain Adventure Lodge is perfect for your mountain getaway. The lodge has two lounge areas. Our colossal fireplace is a keystone, with several couches for travelers to curl up on. The grounds feature a private volleyball court, archery course, amphitheater and hammocks for guests to enjoy. Create your own activities with our large surrounding yard. The lodge is walking distance to great hiking trails, Big Bear Village, restaurants and the lake. We have private king and queen rooms, as well as dorm style rooms.
