We've known it for a while but thanks to Jetsetter Magazine for making it official. Noon Lodge was named one of the Best Weekend Trips from LA.
Below is a snippet of our little feature and you can click HERE to see the full article. We feel so honored to be named among places like the Ojai Rancho Inn and Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs, some of our favs.
Ringed by the San Bernardino National Forest, about 100 miles northeast of LA, Big Bear is a perfect getaway year-round with more than 300 days of sunshine, two great ski resorts for winter and a freshwater lake with 22 miles of shoreline for summer. You’ll want to bed down at the newly renovated Noon Lodge, a 1950s mountain retreat turned into a rustic boho resort. If it’s summer, take to the lake and swim around the beautiful boulders of Garstin Island, which still has the huts used to house the Chinese workers that built the nearby dam 140 years ago. In the winter, go sledding, snowshoeing and, of course, skiing at Bear Mountain or Snow Summit. Big Bear isn’t a big culinary destination, but few can resist the more than 30 flavors of pancakes/waffles and the all-you-can-eat deal at Madlon’s. At night, crowds gather at Big Bear Lake Brewing Company before hitting up late night karaoke (and craft beer!) at the divey Murray’s Saloon.
