Forest Shores is located on Big Bear Lake and managed by the Marina Resort. What makes Forest Shores so cool, is that its located on the waters edge and the rooms are little suites. All the rooms are equipped with Microwaves, Refrigerators, cooking tools and all the table settings you need for 2 to 3 people. Each suite has a...

Forest Shores Inn offers 'lake front'. privately owned, vacation condos for rent. We have vacationed at Forest Shores, with our grandchildren, over a 1/2 dozen times since 1997. All the comforts of a beautiful home, with lake front view, and housekeeping. The two-bedroom condos have fully equipped kitchens with range, oven, microwave, refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, cooking utensils, and other...

We've stayed at Forest Shores Inn for almost 10 years, at Thanksgiving. The 2-bedroom units we've used have been wonderful. Suddenly this year, without explanation, we were informed by the managers at the Marina Resort that they would not rent to us. Since we'd had such a long, happy experience with Forest Shores, we asked for the reason, with every...

We found this place quite by accident, as we were looking for a place that we could dock /slip our boat when we came to Big Bear. Almost missed the Marina Resort and Forest Shores. Upon inquiring at the Marina R esort, we were told about the condos for rent within 100 yards which had dock priveleges. The managers of...

We (myself and two co-workers, each with our own rooms) stayed at Forest Shores Inn instead of Northwoods because our boss wanted to save some money. You get what you pay for! 1) My room had two lamps that did not work because the bulbs were burnt. 2) The carpet was not vacuumed since there was white lint all over...

Looking for a "nearby" quick summer vacation spot for our family when I stumbled across Forest Shores Inn, Big Bear on the internet. It caught my eye with its appeal, value, and accomodations. Horseriding, mountain hiking, fishing, and lake recreation all at our back door, literally. Picture perfect for our family of 4 and one of our children's guest. Best...
