It’s one thing to find a place to travel that affordable and unique, but kid-friendly too? That’s a whole extra layer of search engine wear-and-tear. Well, look no further west coasters, just 100 miles east of LA, Noon Lodge in Big Bear makes for a great weekend trip. It's location alone is easily doable when you have littles in tow!
The boutique lodge is located on a quiet residential street. Noon Lodge is more of a cabin-rental than full service hotel which we love. The full kitchens give us to option to cook a cozy meal by the fireside as a family or head to a restaurant Big Bear Village which is only 1.3 miles away. All the luxuries you need are there though: heat, towels, toiletries, linens, etc. Bringing board games is a must!
Noon Lodge was recently renovated in 2015 with modern finishes, prior it was a 1950s mountain retreat. You can tell with the retro yet modern influence throughout. In the summer the pool is a huge plus. Bocce ball courts and outdoor fireplace (with provided firewood!) is a nice way to get outside and meet other families. Long story short, Noon lodge makes for a perfect getaway whether you're a couple looking for a weekend peace and quiet or a family of five hoping for even 10 minutes of some!
