1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
M14141 was originally opened as a resort lodge in 1927. It has been continually operating since then. Over the years it has been a historic landmark in Big Bear Lake. We are only the fifth family to own this property in over 84 years. These historic resort cabins at our AAA approved lodging property are easily identifiable as a group of free-standing rental cabins at 39367 Big Bear Blvd. in Big Bear Lake. Golden Bear Cottages can easily be recognized as its own quaint mountain village. Come, bring your family or group and enjoy our outdoor spa, heated pool and outdoor recreation areas.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
"Very flexible, courteous, friendly ownership! My friends and I are serving in the U.S. Navy stationed in San Diego and we travel to M14141 on weekends in the Winter whenever our schedule allows. Instead of making the 3-hour drive back to San Diego one day, we decided to rent a cabin. M14141 just happened to be the first place we stopped, and we have been in love with it since. Once, we were snowed in on the mountain and we couldn't leave, and they gave us a generous discount on our cottage to ease our burden". M. Mitchell and friends U.S. Navy
