Bear Suites Village Inn Rules

Welcome to the rules for Bear Suites Village Inn - Polar 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.

    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.

  6. Air Conditioning: NO Central AC. A portable AC unit is provided during spring/summer months for your comfort.
  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.

We had a great time at this Airbnb. When we went there was a snow storm so the location was very convenient being walking distance to restaurants, bars and coffee shops. The hot tub was nice and the fire place as well.

06 March 2021


A nice space for my boyfriend and I who stayed for one night. The bedroom was big and we loved the bed. Definitely big enough for just the two of us, but may be a little crowed for a group of 4. We enjoyed the tv in the living room and the fact we had a full kitchen (even though we got ToGo food.) It is on the opposite side of the main village area but close enough to walk to the different shops and restaurants.

06 March 2021


It was a nice, cozy space right in the middle of downtown. Plenty to do all around.

06 March 2021


Great location and parking right at the door! Hot tub worked great and was exactly what we needed after two days on the slopes. Will definitely look to book again when we visit next

06 March 2021

Love this place so much my boyfriend, lil pup and me stayed in Teddy Bear last weekend and Polar Bear this weekend. Both rooms are pretty identical, very clean and the beds are really comfortable.

Would definitely recommend, we will be back again soon!

Very organized and everything is just as described. The Polar Bear is spacious and cozy allowing for such a great Fall getaway!

I had a wonderful time at the Polar Bear! With a hot jacuzzi and a fireplace, it helps set the mood for such a relaxing experience. The location of this spot is in the heart of the village. We loved it! Thank you!

This was my second time staying here because the first time was absolutely awesome.

There's so much to do walking distance from stores, restaurants and down the street from the lake! The host was amazing with communication and clear instructions. I go to big bear yearly and this is the first place I look for now every year. Perfect location and very nice overall!

Great location

Great location smack dab in the middle of the village. Bed is firm, so if you like that, this is perfect. Could use some updated furniture in living room and dining room. Other than that good stay. We would definitely stay again.

07 February 2024

This place is great if you want to be in The Village at Big Bear!

This is our second time staying here and it was as great as it was the first time! It's very spacious and clean. The kitchen has all the basic necessities to prep meals. The decor is cute- we appreciated the little touches! The hot tub/jet tub in the living room is our favorite, especially after a long day of exploring! The place comes with 1 parking spot, which is great because the village parking can be quite busy! And the checking in and out process was very easy! Would recommend and will be staying again!
