Mallard Bay Resort Customer Comments and Testimonials

Fantastic vacation at Mallard Bay with family and friends. We organized 7 families to go with us for 4 days and we all had a fantastic time. Mallard Bay is always clean. It is not fancy, but we don’t expect that in the mountains. This resort is on the lake in a beautiful alcove that does not get too much boat traffic. The kids all fish off the docks and jump in the lake, swim in the pool that was 82 degrees the whole time and we cooked smores every night in the large stone fireplace after we had group barbeques in the main courtyard. In addition, we organize our own ping pong tournaments , have all become addicted to shuffleboard, (those tournaments are almost as fierce as the volleyball games we have) and even have dodgeball. We are a very active group. If you are looking for a good old fashioned vacation with your family you will not do better than Mallard Bay. The owners go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. The guy complaining about the electricity going out in January must not realize that you can lose electricity anywhere when there is a major storm. We had 33 people up there MLK weekend wit no problem. I would not recommend this place for swinging singles. This is a safe and happy haven for families to create magical childhood memories for their kids. It is perfect for groups, as everyone can be together but have their own cabin for privacy. Thank you Eric, Monique and Kathy for always making our twice a year vacation special. You and your beautiful family are dear to us all. As a footnote, we have been to Mallard Bay 8 times with 7 different groups in the past 3 years and have not encountered any problems or complaints.  (Big Bear Lake Group Vacations and Family Reunions)

Clean, reasonably priced lodging. We were looking for somewhere to stay that had docking facilities for our boat for a five day fishing trip at Big Bear and found it at Mallard Bay Resort. There was a question about where I would be able to store the trailer during the stay. Sent an e-mail and got an answer back within a half day that I can store it on the property in a secured parking area. No extra charge for the slip or trailer storage. Cabins are well kept and clean. There are two gas barbecue grills available for the guests. There’s a large heated swimming pool, ping-pong table and shuffleboard and an uncovered patio area with a fireplace and plenty of seating. Boat slips were more than adequate for our 22’ boat. They even had a fish cleaning station. Owner, operators run and care for the facilities and were available to answer questions and solve any problems. We will definitely stay here again.   ( Boating and Fishing Cabins and Lodging in Big Bear Lake reviewed)

Had a wonderful weekend of fishing and visiting with friends. The weather was incredible, a little rain, a little snow, lots of sunshine with thunder and lightning. We got lots of trout, but the best part of the weekend was undoubtedly staying at Mallard Bay. The owners make sure that their guests have everything they need. The units are nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. They take pride in this property and it shows. Flowers are planted in the spring and veggies too! Swimming, vollyball, shuffleboard and horseshoes are all available during the warmer months. We love being able to dock our boat right outside, and they have a station to clean any fish that you may catch.
They have a large fireplace on the outdoor patio area, and keep a fire burning each night in the summer so guests can roast marshmallows and visit. This is definitely one of our favorite places to
stay! We will continue to return for many years to come. (Oct. 2010)  (Fishing Cabin Rentals and Hotel Lodging in Big Bear, CA)

Excerpt From Trip Advisor
If you are looking for a perfect family vacation or weekend get-a-way, this is the place. Ideally
located on a quiet inlet off of Big Bear Lake, this resort has easy access with a dock to tie down
all your water toys. This location has a swimming pool, shuffleboard, a volleyball net, kayaks and
horseshoes. Picnic tables in a central courtyard make this a perfect place to plan your large group vacations or family reunions. There is an over-sized fireplace in the courtyard with comfortable furniture to lounge in and pokers for the kids to roast marshmallows or create S'mores to wind down a perfect day. Cabins range from single bedrooms to three bedroom units and most have full kitchens. Location is just outside Big Bear Village so great shopping is nearby. Enjoy!

Eric and Family-- Hey all, thank you so much for your hospitality. It was a real nice BBQ with our
team by your fire pit. I am only disappointed that I didn't bring my fishing pole. We had a good
time at Mallard Bay Resort and I will call you when we do it again in the spring time.
Thank you once again,
