Welcome to Gold Mountain Manor


Step across the threshold of our 7,000 square foot log mansion and discover the rhythm of a quieter time.  Built in 1928 by Alexander Barret, a wealthy Los Angeles movie investor, and his beloved wife Bessie, this historic lodge has always been a haven to all who enter.  Even today, new owners Amy and Darrin Odell carry  on the nostalgia of Gold Mountain Manor, providing a refuge for modern-day romance seekers and outdoor adventurers.

Experience the luxury of our historic mansion as you enter through the over sized, log dutch door leading into the formal living room with it's grand centerpiece red quartz rock fireplace and old-world grand piano. Surrounded by vintage Roaring 20's furniture and decor, you will feel like you have just stepped back in time to the Great Gatsby.

Charming enough to inspire you to grab a cup of tea and sip the day away in our lush garden surrounded by flowering trees, rose bushes and towering ponderosa pines while listening to the sounds of birds chirping as squirrels and chipmunks scamper around. Enjoy an enchanting evening in an old-fashioned rocking chair on our classic wrap around veranda elegantly illuminated by string lights and lanterns. 

Relax in one of our seven unique guest rooms each gracefully appointed with a private bathroom,  wood or gas burning fireplace, and queen-sized bed draped with luxurious linens. Our two expansive suites offer grand jacuzzi tubs, perfect for couples to indulge together in an aromatic, lavender essential oil salt bath. Get "Cozy" in our junior suite with an over-sized jetted tub, and settle in for the night with some popcorn, hot cocoa and your favorite classic movie.

Enjoy modern amenities in an old-fashioned environment- All rooms are equipped with 40" 4K LED TVs, cable and complimentary high speed WiFi. Our great room is furnished with leather sofas and a recliner and offers billiards, big screen TV with DVD player, board games, chess, puzzles, and a library of books and DVDs. Grab a fresh brewed espresso and a snack from the guest kitchen and snuggle up with a book next to the wood burning stove, put together a puzzle, or challenge another guest to a game of pool. 

Indulge in homemade delights- You will feel spoiled awaking to the inviting aroma of a hot, gourmet meal prepared fresh for you each morning. Breakfast begins with our signature yogurt parfait and refreshing orange juice followed by a delicous main course prepared special for you by Chef Darrin. Please let us know if you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions as we are happy to make accommodations.

Explore Beautiful Big Bear Lake! We look forward to helping you rediscover a quieter time during your Big Bear getaway and planning the kind of classic escape you will talk about for months afterward.  Gold Mountain Manor is a ½ block from the National Forest, 2 miles from Holcomb Valley Gold Mine Trail, 1.5 miles from Big Bear Lake, and minutes to hiking, biking, skiing, boating, horseback riding and fishing. We are located on the quiet north shore of Big Bear Lake only minutes from the hustle and bustle of the south shore.
