Welcome to Forever Forest Lodge, a haven tucked within the picturesque enclave of Gilner Point in Big Bear Lake, California.

As you approach, you'll be drawn to the extensive deck space that wraps around the cabin, set against a backdrop of mature trees on a spacious lot.

This outdoor haven is perfect for gatherings or serene moments of relaxation, especially with the added luxury of a hot tub.

Step inside, and the essence of mountain-modern living becomes evident.

At the heart of this home lies its spacious great room, a testament to thoughtful design and comfort.

With ceilings that stretch high and wide windows allowing an abundance of natural light to pour in, the room exudes an airy and welcoming ambiance. It effortlessly combines areas meant for entertainment, dining for ten, and a bar with generous seating.

The centerpiece of this area is the contemporary gas fireplace, a perfect spot to gather around during chilly evenings.

Complementing this cozy setting is a plush, oversized couch, beckoning guests to sink in and relax. Positioned above the fireplace, a large flat-screen TV ensures entertainment is just a click away, catering to movie nights or binge-watching sessions.

Every bedroom in the lodge promises a restful sleep, with exceptionally comfortable beds ensuring you wake up refreshed and ready for a new day of adventures.

The master suite offers an added touch of indulgence with a jacuzzi tub, inviting you to unwind in a bubble bath.

For those seeking entertainment, the game room is sure to be a hit. It's stocked with an array of games, from pool to air hockey, foosball, basketball, ping pong, and skee ball. Hours of laughter and friendly competition await here.

An additional feature that sets this lodge apart is the lower level, which houses two more bedrooms and a secondary kitchen. It's a layout that resonates with versatility, making it perfect for large groups or events.

Forever Forest Lodge also boasts an enviable location. You're moments away from serene strolls around the lake, invigorating hikes, the thrill of the alpine magic slide, and the charm of the village and Snow Summit.

While air conditioning is absent, nature compensates with its own cooling system - the fresh mountain air.

Note: The allure of Forever Forest Lodge means it's often in high demand. Ensure you don't miss out on this blend of comfort and luxury by booking ahead. The memories you'll make here are worth it.

Simply Amazing Property

Everything about this property was perfect for my family of 14. We had a age range from 79 years to 6 months old. Game room and Theater was a big hit. Spacious home and yard with tree swing. Jacuzzi was hot when we arrived and the BBQ was huge. The whole house was beautiful inside and out. 3 minute walk to the Lake. Everyone had a Blast…

Family reunion

Great for us, kids enjoyed game room and plenty of comfortable space. Clean and all we needed for a great time. Please ask your staff to watch for a car key fob that I lost while there, may not be at the house but could have slipped into a corner somewhere, thanks
