About Craig & Regina, Benjamin & Sharon

Linaker Lodge was created so that we had a mountain retreat for our families to enjoy throughout the year

Craig & Regina, Benjamin & Sharon purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Craig & Regina, Benjamin & Sharon chose Big Bear Lake

Big Bear enamored us as we could escape to the mountains within two hours and have a place to relax and recover. Our hope is that other families can enjoy Linaker Lodge when we aren't able to be there

What makes this lodge unique

Linaker Lodge is located in the prestigious Castle Glen region of Big Bear Lake. In addition to being close to the ski slopes and the lake, our home is located on a cul-de-sac offering a private and secluded experience.

beautiful property with great amenities and a very hands on owner.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of friends during a summer weekend. The place has plenty of space and can accommodate a large group. Pool table, BBQ, huge kitchen and several large tvs. Owners are quite hands on.

Plenty of space. Great place to stay!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 went with another family of 4 and it worked out great! They took the downstairs and we stayed upstairs. Master and queen downstairs... double bunks and another queen room upstairs. The game room is upstairs just far enough from the family room that they aren't disturbing each other. Game room had a pool table and TV with Xbox, which was fun for my kids because they don't have one at home. The kids explored somewhat on the side yard... back yard doesn't have too much space before the neighbor's house. FYI no outside dining. Plenty of sheets, towels, and blankets. Vons and Starbucks down the street, which was really convenient. The Village is maybe 10 minutes or so away (by car). We had a little trouble cooling the place down on a hot day, but the thermostat said low battery so that may have been why. We really enjoyed this place and had great interactions with the owner Craig. Our only complaint was that the cleaning crew that got the place ready didn't do a great job. Many of the plates had to be re washed before we could eat off them. Some had some dried on food, so they just were not scrubbed enough to get clean. Dusty ceiling fans... at least in the bunk room. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here. :)

This cabin is great! We have stayed here 4 years in a row and love it. It is very clean with great amenities. There is two large living room areas which are great for playing games and spending time together!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Spent a weekend here with my cousins and we had a wonderful time! The house is just as pictured and does not disappoint!! There were 12 of us and we had plenty of space. It's in a great location, close to the lake and shopping center with market, restaurants and dollar store in case you forgot any supplies/items. They don't have central a/c but when we opened the windows and turned on all the fans it started to cool down. Craig is very responsive and accommodating. Would definitely recommend staying here!!

Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Photos and description of the property were very accurate. We were 3 couples and there was plenty of room, in fact, we never made it into the second story great room with pool table and board games. Equipment and supplies listed were available. Minor disappointments, vacuuming by the cleaning service, wash cloths and dish towels were not sufficient, but this was not through owners' neglect. In fact, Craig called to make sure all went well on first day. The light over the sink was not working , probably burned out. Loved the location and condition of the house. We would rent their again.

Perfect vacation home for large multi-family group

  • 5 of 5

We get everyone together on my husband's side of the family every year for a week-long vacation. Linaker Lodge was the perfect headquarters to house 7 adults and 6 children (ages 1-7 yrs old). We all love to cook--the spacious gourmet kitchen allowed us to stretch our tap into our culinary repertoire and feed our army. Huge dining room table for the adults, and kitchen counter with stools for the kids during mealtimes. The adults and kids loved the billiards room/playroom in the back of the house. The house was thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Grocery store, hiking, and fishing sites only minutes away. Craig was super nice and easy to deal with--even touched base with us on Day 1 to see if we had any problems checking in or needed anything. We came in the spring just after the snow was gone, but with the ski resorts nearby, we'll definitely plan a winter trip back to Linaker Lodge. Thank you Craig, Regina, Ben, and Sharon for sharing your home with us.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $250
Damage Deposit $500

An additional 3% will be assessed due to the so called Big Bear Lake Tourism Improvement District (BBLTBID), having gone into effect on April 1, 2016. The annual assessment rate for lodging businesses is 3% of gross short-term (stays less than 31 days) room rental revenue. Assessments will not be levied on stays of more than 30 consecutive days. The amount of assessment passed on to the guest must be separately stated from the amount of rent charged and any other applicable taxes. I am bringing to your attention that VRBO does not allow me to itemized this BBLTBID tax and that this 3% BBLTBID tax is in addition to the City of Big Bear Lake standard business tax rate of 8%. This will show up on your quote as a 11% tax rate. Thank you.
