    The owners were friendly. The property was sweet and comfortable. I loved the kitchen, which had basic cooking supplies, fridge and microwave. Since we came during Covid times, we really wanted a place where we could stay away from people and having a kitchen made it posible for us to cook or properly store and reheat restaurant food. We were able to borrow movies and get wood. So, we had a very pleasant movie night with the kids in front of a nice fire. My favorite part about the property was that it was walking distance to Aspen Glen, one of our favorite places to visit when we’re in Big Bear. Also, super close is the so delicious Sister My Sister bakery. Staying and shopping at family-owned businesses is a priority of mine. And Hillcrest Lodge and surrounding small businesses were perfect!

    Comfortable. The room was small but cute and although My room was close to the highway at night there was not much traffic so it was quiet. The only functional problem was the ceiling lamp needs a longer chain I had to get on a chair to turn on the light I didn’t call the maintenance because of Covid. The Decour was really nice and the heater worked well along with the fridge and microwave. I wish they had some public sitting areas in the back of the property where it’s quiet to enjoy the view Everything is at the front of the property by the road.

    Me and my BF spent the weekend at Big Bear and stayed in room 2 at Hillcrest Lodge. It was a small but cute cabin filled with the necessary amenities(microwave, small fridge, small table, tv) for a short getaway. It was clean and the front staff was nice. They had a selection of movies you could borrow at the front office. They also had games out in their patio. of corn hole, foosball and table tennis which wThe only thing that was an issue was the WiFi. It was very slow. Actually I don’t think we ever got service.
