This is our second stay here. We love it. I meant to write a reveiw last time and simply, life got in the way and I didn't get to it. The owners are so sweet and have worked very hard breathing life b...ack into this older establishment. I have stayed other places in the area and when I found this gem, I knew this was our home when we come to town. Our daughter attends college here and we will be spending a lot of time in the area, so we are very happy to know we have a clean, affordable, comfy, cozy and adorable place to retire at the end of the day.

We stayed at the lodge Saturday, and we enjoyed it very much. We have been traveling for 3 weeks, but this was the best bed we have had. We met a nice atmosphere, and the breakfast was good.
We wish a...ll the best for Big Bear Lodge See More

We booked one night online at the Big Bear Lodge. What a pleasant surprise. The rooms are decorated so cute. It was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. A wonderful view of the lake. T...he owners were so sweet and helpful. They even provide breakfast (simple, like cereal, English muffins, coffee and juice). No doubt, we will stay here again when in Alpena! See More

This Lodge is a Mom and Pop kind of place. Comfortable and clean. Owners Cody and Honlie are truly nice, hard working people. They purchased the place about 3 months ago and they have done wonders i...n that short time. The beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are small but the hot water was plentiful. I look forward to staying there with my family again. See More

I stayed in a room with one queen bed. It was the perfect size. The bed was comfortable and very clean. The coffee was good in the room and the owner was very nice and hospitable. You can't tell they ...take great pride in what they do. I will for sure stay there again if and when I am in the Alpena area. See More

I'm very late on this review. We spent a couple days at Big Bear in July. Jacobus and Hanlie were charming hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location was excellent. The room was clean and neat.... I'd happily stay there again. See More

The owners make the difference. They are welcoming, friendly & personable. We were very pleased with our over night stay. It's an older hotel but the personable mom & pop flair beats out any cookie cu...tter chain establishment I've ever stayed at. See More
