Our summer vacation spent at Shore Acres Lodge in Big Bear was nothing short of charming and relaxing. The property with it's quaint cabins is a throw back to a simpler time...kind of like camp as a kid...but with the adult amenities. We stayed in the Lakeside cabin with our Golden Retrievers and found the tranquility of the lake to...

Love the family atmosphere. The kids had fun with neighboring families. The swing set, pool and jacuzzi as well as welcome barbeque were great. Our cabin is @ 20 foot walk to the beach, no streets to cross over, and the site is a quick @ 1 mile walk to the Big Bear Village. Too expensive, will not return next...

The interior could use some updating. Some of the furniture was in bad shape. You also need more utensils. Trash bags were hard to get the right size; they keep giving us small ones for the big trash cans. The carpet needs to be replaced, it was pretty dirty. I loved the layout of the cabin. It was nice to...

We have been staying at Shore Acres every summer for 30 years, and we always love it, that's why we continue to come back for a week each year. We look forward to this week all year long because we know how wonderful it is. We have had very few problems with the cabins in all those years. This year...

Sometimes you just need to get away from the city and breathe some fresh mountain air. Shore Acres Lodge was the perfect antidote for my husband and me. Oh, and our yellow lab too! Our cabin (Juniper) was so cute and cozy and was just 3 cabins away from the lake. We enjoyed the equipped kitchen, comfy living room, and...

Went to Big Bear for cousin's 50th birthday party!!! His sister has a place in Big Bear and gave us the listing for Shore Acres. We booked the largest cabin as there were several of us in our party. Funky cabin but lots of character, large kitchen. Fun place for kids, there is a pool, sauna, ping pong and volleyball...

This was my first stay in Big Bear and my internet search brought me to Shore Acres. I was looking for a rustic-type cabin on the lake and so I can't really complain. That's what we got: a rustic cabin, right on the lake. The view was very beautiful. However, the cabin was in need of a little attention. When...

We have been coming to this resort for 12 years. Unfortunately every year it seems to get worse, but we LOVE the location. We rented a cabin on the lake. The kitchen had an odor coming from the vent hood that was so bad that we covered it with plastic bags as it was nauseating. It was caked with grease....

Too bad they haven't maintained this property. The porch was rickety, the picnic table unusable, the furniture stained, and the cabin was smelly. We paid top dollar for the view and that's all that didn't disappoint.

I am afraid to give a review of Shore Acres because I want to buy this place and live here someday....so what does that tell you? Only problem I've encountered in all my stays here, is that there are no phones or Internet service in the cabins. If they'd fix that, Shore Acres would be heaven for me :)
