Rim of the World Road Trip

When the folks from Visit California reached out to us and let us know they were going to film a Road Trip on the Rim of the World Highway and highlight places and things to do along the way we were thrilled to be a part and featured as the place to lay your head.

If you have ever driven up to Big Bear you have most likely driven on part of the Rim of the World Highway, maybe without even knowing it, and certainly missing out on some stops along the way. Watch the video below for some inspiration and tips for your next Road Trip. 

Click HERE to read the full article for more of their tips and ideas of what to do in Big Bear Lake. 

And here is a snippet of what they had to say about our little mountain Lodge, "Get on State Route 18 and head toward Big Bear Lake Village. Embrace the Alpine scenery on the western side of the Rim by staying in a modern version of a mountain cabin. The cottages of Noon Lodge, which first opened in the 1950s, have been renovated with cedar detailing, kitchens, fireplaces, and cheeky-cabin decor (as well as TVs and WiFi)."

Thanks Visit California for including us in your feature!

Singer-Songwriter Marina V.

Last weekend we got to host Marina V., an award-winning Russian-American pop singer/songwriter. She stayed with us at Noon Lodge while she was in town to perform at The Cave in the Village. She blogged about her weekend stay and included some restaurant reviews and some fun shots of our Lodge. Check out her blog to see the whole post and to download some of her music!


How pretty are these shots she captured from her drive up the mountain. She was coming from Los Angeles where the temps reached over 100 degrees so she was particularly excited to feel the temperature drop as the wound further and further up the mountain.

What I loved about this hotel: This is a very unique, beautiful lodge with private cabins with kitchens, charming rustic decor, a lovely vibe, inviting grounds, great location, very friendly staff (extra thanks goes out to Lex for making us feel welcome), easy parking and extremely easy check in/check out (they even give you a special Noon Lodge compilation CD as a gift!) There is a swimming pool and bocce ball but we didn’t really have time for any of it (boo!!) as we were performing.

It was a really quick trip for Marina with most of her time spent performing but we hope she can come back soon and hang out with us a bit more!

Julianne Hough visits Noon Lodge

Last weekend Julianne Hough, star of Dancing with the Stars, stayed at Noon Lodge to celebrate one of her close friends 30th birthday. The paparazzi was not far behind as they've been tracking her and her new husband, Brooks Laich, since they recently returned from their honeymoon. They caught a few pics of them playing some team games with their friends and Noon Lodge got a shout out in both People and US magazine!

Here is a snippet from US Magazine, "Newlyweds Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich celebrated a friend’s 30th birthday at Noon Lodge in Big Bear Lake, California, last weekend. The couple looked so in love while enjoying a variety of outdoor activities during the two-day retreat." 

And here is what People Magazine had to say, "Julianne Hough and new husband Brooks Laich displayed some seriously cute team spirit during a weekend retreat with friends to Big Bear Lake, California. The newlyweds, who tied the knot in a dreamy Idaho ceremony last mont, played some fun, outdoor games at the Noon Lodge on Sunday, while celebrating a friend’s birthday.
