Rick and Kim Sottile and Family

Hello Eric,

I wanted to thank you for the great experience we had at Mallard Bay Resort this past weekend. My friends and I stayed in Unit #10 and enjoyed our clean and fully equipped cabin and the beautiful view. More importantly, we appreciated your friendly and helpful attitude towards us and for letting our guests who were not staying with us to join us for breakfast on the benches by Big Bear Lake at the resort. Lastly, thank you for being so kind in giving us a mid-week discounted rate for the cabin.

Great Place For A Family Getaway!

We just came back from Mallard Bay Resort in Big Bear Lake and cannot get over how impressed we were! The rates were much lower than anywhere else we considered, and most of the other places were not even waterfront, let alone with a private boat dock. We went in thinking it would be a step up from camping (we were mainly interested in being on the water with a boat dock ). But it was so much more!! Our two boys, 9 and 11, found endless activities…the pool is enormous and perfectly clean, there is shuffleboard, stacks of books and board games, ping pong, and of course, Big Bear Lake! Just a few steps down from the cabin to the dock for fishing or just paddling around the lake in a raft or inner tube. The best part is that the dock is so close to the cabin, we could watch the kids fishing while making breakfast, etc.! The cabin was stocked with everything we could need and like the other reviews said, the owners were very friendly and accommodating. We had such a great time that we can’t wait to go back!

Great Weekend!

Just had another fantastic stay at Mallard Bay Resort! Went up for the May Trout Classic and despite the howling winds and the snow flurries (yes, snow in May!) we had a great time. Caught lots of trout and it was so nice to use the dock and not have to launch our boat every morning ! The cabin kept us snug and warm. Too bad it was too cold to sit around the outside fire but we will do that in the next month or two. We had unit #11 and had plenty of room for the 3 of us to relax after fishing. Thanks! We will certainly be back again soon!

Exceptional Experience, Unforgettable Place

Everything about our recent family vacation at the Mallard Bay Resort in Big Bear Lake made us want to return as soon as possible J. Eric and Monique, the owners and on-site managers of the resort are the most genuine and gracious host and hostess you could ask for. They take great care in their property and the vacation experience they provide for their customers, as well as great care and interest in the customers themselves J They are very knowledgeable about the area activities and encourage you to ask for anything you need during your stay. This was our first stay at Mallard Bay Resort. It was recommended to us by another family we met on a prior trip to Big Bear. They could not say enough praises about it either, so we knew we needed to plan our vacation here. From the moment we arrived we were impressed by all the outdoor activities (swimming pool, shuffleboard, ping pong, horseshoes, volleyball.) But most of all the resort has lake access from their property for docking your boat or using the dock to fish from. The ability to fish from the dock made my two sons the happiest fishermen alive. My younger one, who is 6, caught a record for himself of 7 catfish in less than a day. The lake is stocked with a variety of fish, but catfish were the easiest to catch while we were there. As for the accommodations, the four of us stayed in a 2 bedroom/1bath unit with a full kitchen (as they all have), unit 7, the second closest to the lake (unit 8 and 10 are a bit larger and overlook Big Bear Lake). Very clean and well-stocked with all that we needed. We just needed to provide food. There were BBQ’s available to grill on and picnic tables, we used for a dinner, all this is adjacent to the outdoor fireplace. This fireplace area is complete with comfortable seating. Each night Eric and Monique would get the fireplace ready for guests to come and relax in from of the fire, and socialize and roast marshmallows if you so desired. Our family loves to come to Big Bear for vacations. We have made annual trips in winter and summer for the last several years. We have tried other accommodations, but Mallard Bay Resort by far is the best VALUE and EXPERIENCE you will find in all of Big Bear. I encourage anyone thinking of staying here to try it, I guarantee you will find yourself wanting to come back!! Room Tip: Units 8 and 10 have lake view, no noise problems, very quiet, approximately 2 units/building, 2 story (most), 16 units total.

Excellent Experience!

My family stayed at this place for 2 nights and had a great experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the facility is very clean. We appreciate that the place has a private boat dock. Although we didn’t have a boat, our 7 year old son loved casting a line for fishing in the early morning on the dock. It was so peaceful and incredibly pretty there! They also had almost all the cookware and dinnerware in the kitchen in our cabin. We had a good time cooking while looking at the lake through the kitchen window. We recommend this place to those who want to stay at Big Bear Lake.
