Big Bear Lake, CA, USA
The award-winning Lagonita Lodge is encased with towering pines on the tranquil South Shore of Big Bear Lake. This quintessential mountain lodge offers guests huge deluxe guestrooms, most with gorgeous views of the lake. Each of the 98 uniquely designed one- and two-bedroom condos is comfortably furnished in a warm and friendly mountain cottage décor. All have full kitchens, gas fireplaces, environmentally friendly bath amenities, satellite television and daily housekeeping services.
The lake's charming village is less than two miles away, offering shops, boutiques and fine dining. Even closer is Magic Mountain Recreation Area, a favorite with kids in the summer or winter! There's a snow run for tubes, three straight runs and one snake-turn run. The Alpine Slide is great in the summertime.
In winter, you can't go past the skiing — downhill and cross-country. Two of Southern California's finest skiing hotspots, Snow Summit and Bear Mountain, are only two miles away from Lagonita Lodge. The resort offers ski storage, a cheerful fire in the lobby, and coffee ready and waiting for when you come in from the cold. In the summertime, there's a marina on-site for boating enthusiasts, as well as a small boat and jet-ski facility.
If you prefer to simply take in the beauty of the area, the patio offers serene views of the tranquil lake and comes complete with an outdoor spa. Alternatively, you can hire a bicycle and take a leisurely ride to the village or along the lake shore. Relax in the indoor heated spa and pool, work out in the fitness center, or play billiards, ping-pong or video games in the recreation room. There are also barbecues located next to most of the units and a swingset for the little ones.
With its quaint, rustic feel, you’ll feel right at home from the moment you arrive at Lagonita Lodge. The staff are friendly and ever ready to make your vacation heavenly.
