The Three Pines Lodge is conveniently located on Big Bear Blvd. (aka Highway 18) just two miles East of the dam in Boulder Bay. The address is 39280 Big Bear Blvd., Big Bear Lake, California.
When traveling to the Big Bear area there are three routes to choose from:
- State Hwy 330 / Hwy 18 through Running Springs is the fastest and easiest route, however, it can get congested on weekends and busy holidays.
- Highway 38 through Redlands is a bit longer, but is the most scenic and often has less traffic than Hwy 330 / Hwy 18.
- Finally there is Highway 18 through the Lucerne Valley, which gets less snowfall during storms and has the least amount of mountain driving.
It is a good idea to choose your route depending on weather conditions and day of the week, and remember to always carry chains in your vehicle when traveling in the mountains.
