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.

Amazing home in a great location. This is truly one of the nicest homes I have been. Very spacious, large, comfortable and impeccably decorated. Great views of the mountains. The owners were very accommodating and made the experience very easy. I will definitely go back :)

The best home in Big Bear!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this home. In my opinion, you will not find a better rental even if you look at higher price ranges. The owner is very responsive, and because it is his vacation home as well, he really takes care of it. The location is wonderful-- just up the hill from the lake, and very close to grocery stores, go kart racing, hiking and the main town (we were here for summer). The house itself is very spacious and beautifully furnished. There is a very large family room with pool table upstairs, while downstairs, the kitchen and living room are oversized and elegant. There is no clutter at all to get in your way, and the home is very clean and well-maintained. I highly recommend Linaker Lodge and would happily stay here every year!

Owesome house for vacation and weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very modern and elegant. It was spacious enough for big families. I invited my sisters' families to this trip and they all enjoyed staying. The pool table on upstairs bar was such a surprising for the families as leisure. The house was located in gated private community near the lake area with great mountain views. I would love to visit again for the winter and all my sisters wants to tag along again.

I appreciated to the home owner who welcomed us with warm greeting! Two thumbs way up👍𣐽𣑍

Can't wait to come back... again and again.

  • 5 of 5

My family originally stayed in Linaker Lodge over the holidays. The cabin accommodated all of us - grandparents, adults, teenagers and kids. Plenty of room, furnished nice and well-stocked kitchen. The cul-de-sac location was nice too with little ones.

We had such a great time, we returned for another long weekend in February. Every room is in top shape. Our favorite is the kitchen. The owners are friendly and very hospitable.

Can't wait to come back in the summer... fall... winter.

Sincerely,

Kristen

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning Fee $200
Refundable damage deposit $500
Tax Rate 11.0%

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.
