Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
To begin, the location is perfect! The house is tastefully decorated, creating a serene ambiance. We had more than enough space and entertainment for the kids and adults in our group. We have no suggestions for improvement as we found this cabin perfect, not too rustic nor contemporary. Thank you Craig.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with our stay here. The owners were so easy to work with and very accommodating. The lodge itself had plenty of room for a large group of people. It was clean, neat, and beautiful. The pool table was a nice feature as well as all of the books, games, and DVDs. There is plenty to do and the location was great!

Very Nice Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 9 who stayed here for Christmas and it worked out perfect. The cabin had plenty of room and the layout of a large game room upstairs allowed our family to spread out in the house. I would definitely recommend this place.

The Log Palace

  • 5 of 5
How to describe our stay … where do I begin. From the time we arrived on Thursday mid-day until checkout on Monday it felt as if we were dropped into a fairytale life. This was our wedding week-end and we had family members aging from 12 to 65+. This “Log Palace” could not have been better suited for us, even if we designed it just for this occasion. The upstairs great room, with the pool table and 60” TV kept the grand-children entertained for the week-end, while the parents (our children) and us worked in the kitchen and visited in the downstairs great room and dining area. While we were married in the wonderful Shepherd in the Pines Church, Linaker Lodge certainly set the backdrop for making beautiful memories of our special week-end. The roominess, the luxurious appointments, the gourmet kitchen, the cleanliness, the lovely welcome basket created a truly unforgettable week-end.
Pictures simply can NOT do the place justice; Nor can words adequately describe the level of hospitality we received from our hosts. Only by a stay at Linaker Lodge can make you realize how truly special the place is.

The place is really nice and spacious. It was able to accommodate my group of 10 comfortably. The best part of staying here was the stocked kitchen and the smart televisions with netflix, definitely made the trip fun. Also, the place is close to a Vons and the lake. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some quality with friends and family.

Great location. Lots of space, plenty of room for 8 adults. We especially enjoyed the beautiful and fully equipped kitchen. We will plan on a return trip soon.

From the Owner

Big Bear enamored us as we could escape to the mountains within two hours and have a place to relax and recover. Our hope is that other families can enjoy Linaker Lodge when we aren't able to be there
