My family rented almost all the cabins at Oak Knoll for a wedding weekend. The cabins are all different, no two are alike which adds to the charm. Wyatt, the manager, is extremely accommodating and easy to work with, and a pleasure to visit with. He let us check in early and check out late. All of the cabins have at least a small kitchen, so it is easy to get the family together for meals.There is a trail head across the street if you want to hike without getting in the car.
The cabins are cute, unique, rustic. They are not new or fancy. If you want a low key weekend in Big Bear, stay at Oak Knolls.
Our family's stay at Oak Knoll Lodge was a great experience. The manager, I believe his name was Wyatt, was super cool. Check in was a breeze. He gave me some local tips and even helped clear some snow from our parking area. I saw the new owner too and she greeted us with a friendly welcome. The office offered shovels and sleds for use while staying.
Our cabin was cabin #4. A one bedroom cabin that sleeps about 6, with two queen beds in the bedroom and fold down futon couch in the living room. The cabin was a bit dated but had the comforts for a mountain cabin stay. A fireplace, tv, wifi, and a well equipped kitchen made our stay comfy in the snow. Stove, microwave, full size fridge, coffee maker, pots and pans, glasses, plates and utensils and a nice large table. The bathroom is a bit small for 6 but we did fine. This cabin had a great view in the rear and a perfect hill for sledding. We even used the volleyball court in the snow. The SB Forest is also across the street for even more great snow play or hiking. Bring your own food and firewood.
This lodge actually has about a dozen individual cabins with varied sizes and accommodations from couples to families. It’s off the main HWY 18 so you don’t hear the traffic passing by all day, but close enough to walk to nearby businesses. You can actually walk to the Alpine Slide and a market on HWY 18. Also a quick drive to Big Bear Village for shops and restaurants. I would come back in winter for more snow fun, and summer to check out the pool fun.
