One of Big Bear’s most famous outdoorsmen, Ted Ducey visited the Valley on his honeymoon in 1916 and never left. Ducey’s tales of his pet bald eagle and tame wildcat have been printed and broadcast throughout the country. What once was the Mansion’s historic carriage and tack room is now a secluded and spacious 600 square foot, three-room suite featuring wraparound windows and a big Jacuzzi for two accented by Mission tiles and large timbers positioned to view the flames in the wood-burning stove. Relax surrounded in rich earthen tones and aged knotty pine accents. Rest easy in the Suite’s willow furniture, its artisan log-framed bed – singularly unique in character and charm – and private veranda. All perfectly suited to enjoy the suite’s cultural decorations – Native American collectibles and original artwork by Valley photographers. The Ted Ducey Suite is the perfect space for the discriminating and romantic couple who treasure tier privacy as much as they appreciate rustic elegance. But we have to warn you – you may be inclined to stay on indefinitely just as Ted Ducey did."After 15 years of marriage, it finally happened! We got our much needed and deserved Honeymoon! Gold Mountain Manor was the perfect place to spend time together relaxing, talking and cuddling! We loved it here so much that we stayed an extra night and still don’t want to go home. Everyone here was amazing and Gold Mountain is a top notch B&B. We loved this room and chose it on arrival out of several other rooms. It was cozy, romantic and quiet. Make sure to take a walk in the woods at the end of the street and enjoy all the wonderful amenities! "
