Bear Suites Village Inn Rules

Welcome to the rules for Bear Suites Village Inn - Kodiak Bear Suite. Our aim is to maintain a harmonious environment that aligns with local Code Compliance and respects the comfort of all guests. As part of this effort, we've established some friendly but firm and inflexible house guidelines.


  1. Maximum Occupancy: 4 guests (4 adults max).
  2. Parking: Space for 1 vehicle. Exceeding the limit may result in fines of up to $1,000.
  3. Pets: Pets Allowed (Max: 2 pets).
    1. Pets require pre-approval: Post-approval, a $20 fee per pet applies (charged post-booking).

    3. Pet Guidelines:
      • Kennel pets when unattended.
      • Keep off furniture/beds.
      • Clean up after them.
      • Charges apply for pet damages.
    • Coyote Warning: Coyotes are extremely prevalent in Big Bear, even in the most densely populated areas. If you see one, you can bet they’re part of an unseen pack. These animals are bold and territorial. They pose a significant threat to pets. For their safety, never leave your pets unattended, even in fenced areas, especially after dark. Coyotes are known for their ability to overcome barriers, including high fences. And they’re even known for attacking pets that are on a leash. We cannot overstate the need for heightened vigilance concerning your pets' safety.
  4. Check-In: Conducted at The Village Office for a warm welcome and local code compliance.
  5. Noise: Quiet hours from 9 pm to 8 am. You are not allowed to be outside, in a hot tub, play music or create any noise from inside of the residence that could be heard outside of the home. If these rules are violated, Code Enforcement could impose fines of up to $1,000 or eviction.  (We have no control over Code Enforcement’s decisions.)
  6. Air Conditioning: None. Enjoy natural mountain breezes through open windows.
  7. Ants: Sometimes our ants can be a bit over-friendly. To keep these small visitors at bay, we suggest promptly cleaning up right after each meal and don’t leave food out. (We do use ant bait & ant traps… and the ants tend to look at those as snacks.)
  8. Trash: You are mandated by ordinance to dispose of your trash at the designated trash site. If you require assistance, we can arrange a pick-up service for a nominal fee.
  9. Video Surveillance & Noise Monitors: We employ external video surveillance and noise monitors at most of our properties. (We do not have video or audio monitoring inside of the residences.)
  10. No Smoking/Vaping: We have a very strict No Smoking and/ or No Vaping policy on the grounds of all of our properties.
    • If any guest smokes or vapes on the premises during their stay, a minimum cleaning fee of $750 will be charged automatically to the Credit Card on file to cover the cost of carpets cleaning, dry cleaning of all bedspreads, curtains, etc. And the security deposit will be forfeited.
  11. Age: Minimum booking age is 18. 
  12. Parties: No parties allowed; parties will result in immediate eviction and forfeiture of the security deposit. Additional cleaning fees may apply.
  13. Communication: For questions or concerns, we're available via phone or email.

Note: Code Enforcement enforces all of the ordinances in Big Bear Lake. We have no control over the decisions they make, up to and including fines and evictions.

Note: Any eviction will result in the loss of your security deposit and you will not be entitled to a refund.

Note: Based upon availability and to provide flexibility for our guests, we offer early check-in and late check-out options. There is a fee associated with this service. If you’d like to check in before the usual time, please inquire with front desk, as well for late check-out. 

Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us with any queries or concerns; we're just a phone call or an email away.

Great place to stay! Right in the middle of good food, shops, breweries and your morning coffee

This was a last minute trip for my husband's birthday weekend trip! Located right downtown, walking distance to good food, breweries, coffee and shops… check in and check out was fast and easy. The place was cozy and loved that they accommodated for our 2 frenchies that enjoyed our weekend getaway.

Great Stay!

"We had a great stay. The place was clean and very conveniently located in the village. Our suite faces the parking lot, which was much quieter than other units that face Pine Knot Ave. Management staff was super friendly and responsive. We were allowed to check in early because the place was ready early. We appreciated that."

Great location in the middle of “The Village” All stores and restaurants you need, are within walking distance of SoCal’s place. You can walk up and down Pine Knot Av all day long any time of day or night and feel completely safe.

The location is perfect, in the Village. Communication was great, host was flexible and allowed us a slight earlier check in. Place was clean and super dog friendly. Thanks.

It was a nice stay, the location cannot be beat. It was very dated but this is everywhere in Big Bear. If you want to be right in town this is a great place to stay, there is also a cute little park walking distance that we were able to enjoy with our kids. I would come back due to proximity of all activities.

It was a great little spot with everything we needed. Will 1000% come back yearly because it was just that good. The kitchen was small but came with everything you need to make a big breakfast and dinner. The fire place kept you nice and warm along with the heater. I’m recommending this place for everyone. 10/10

“This place was great!

“This place was great! The location is at the entrance of the village which made it easy to walk everywhere. Once we parked our car after doing our daily activities we never had to drive again since everything was within walking distance. Big Bear Lake Brewery is dangerously close across the street. Haha. My girlfriend and I are night shift nurses so we showed up on check-in day past closing time. The host contacted me with all the information needed (codes, parking details, etc) and even had the heater on for when we arrived. Communication was never an issue. I would stay here again 100% and recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some time in Big Bear!”
