This is one of Big Bear Mountains most legendary lodges! Built by Amadeo Giannini, Founder of Bank of America, as his family vacation home in 1916. Later featured in multiple Hollywood motion pictures and Western Classics such as "Bonanza". Well known for its GIGANTIC walk in fire place and handcrafted wood work.

The lodge consists of a mix of dorm rooms, private rooms and we even have camp sites available! Perfect for large families or group retreats! We can host up to 40 guests!

Place was great fit for large group. We were 28 people and there were plenty of space for everyone. Major issue is carpet and cleanliness. As well as pictures on AbnB are not updated so it was a disappointment when we get there. Things are almost broken in game room which was the main attraction with large family to hang out and play. Location is excellent. Check in was smooth and people are very responsive.

We stayed at the ITH in February 2017. The weekend we stayed, the biggest storm of the year was supposed to hit. We left the LA area early, so that we could beat the storm. Our plan was to just hang out in the city and wait for our 3pm check in time.The manager of the lodge called us and we were able to check in around 12pm at no extra charge. We were beyond grateful for this because we had small children with us. The communication between us and the lodge was amazing.I would message them and in the next hour they would respond. The lodge was huge and it fit all 24 of us perfectly. The only thing I would suggest is an upgrade on kitchen appliances. We had a large group to feed an unfortunately the oven took forever to heat up and the microwave took even longer. The fridge could also us some replacing. Other than that our vacation was more than we could've asked for. We are already planning to make this trip a yearly event.

Great location. Walking distance go the main shopping area. Up off the street enough that we weren't in any kind of traffic area. The place is very spacious and comfortable.
