  • Great Family Getaway at Amazing Location

    "My wife and I brought our three children to Big Bear for the first time and stayed at the Grand. It truly is an exceptional home in an amazing location. We were just minutes from everything and the views from this home are truly unrivaled. We honestly scoured the coastline to find a home with a better view and there simply isn't one. The house was a destination itself such that when we weren't out hiking or boating, we were still experiencing the lake either sitting on the dock or on one of the many patios overlooking the lake. The house is very well appointed inside with lots of things to do (Ping-Pong, billiards, card table, bar) in the winter months, although we didn't use them much during our summer stay. The owners take extremely good care of the house and there were literally no maintenance or similar issues with the home. Our family has stayed in many high-end vacation rental homes and they all seem to show the wear and tear of being constantly rented. This home is the exception: there is very little wear noticeable on anything. Overall, I would consider the Grand one of the crown jewels of Big Bear Lake. It is very rare to find such a nice home for rent and in such great condition. Treat yourself to this amazing home and you won't be disappointed!"

  • Fabulous Family Getaway

    "Awesome Adventure. This cabin facilitated the perfect getaway for our family. The master bedroom was super comfortable even for my 6'4" husband. The game room was a huge hit with our teenage boys, loved the big screen TV and reclining chairs for movies after a day on the slopes. Well equipped, close to everything. A real mountain cabin experience. There are lots of stairs, so I wouldn't bring grandma or anyone with physical disabilities. I might have caution for folks with young kids because the spiral staircase is steep and, well, spiral :), but our host has thought of everything and installed a gate at the top to prevent accidents. Charming, beary nice."

  • Great place to bond

    "We had such an amazing time at this cabin. It was perfect for our family to reconnect. There is a great room upstairs that allows everyone to intereact while overlooking pine trees and beautiful boulder bay. I thank you very much for accommodating us for the weekend, as it was a much needed retreat for the whole family."

  • The seclusion and owner set this property apart from the rest, A+...

    "We stayed at Tony's cabin in March of 2013 with two small kids. If you are looking for a more resort like property, or a jacuzzi deck this is not the property for you, this is a property for people that want a CABIN. The wood burning stove does an excellent job of heating the cabin evenly and keeping it cozy even when the snow flies outside (we had one night with snow). A few things we learned that will come in handy to future visitors... Don't overpack, the cabin has plenty of utensils, pots, pans and so on and in the end we were glad we brought some paper plates and cups so we didn't have to wash dishes, but most everything you need as far as kitchenware is there. Firewood is everywhere (we brought some). The cabin is isolated and quiet and you will sleep great, town in close enough if you need something. Just understand this is a rustic property, there is hot water for quick showers, but this is a simple few frills property. When we drove up at first we were a little put off by some clutter around the cabin, but understand the owner is building an addition so that part is a work in progress and explains some of the tools about. Super nice owner, easy to deal with and very accommodating. We will definitely stay there again. Great scenery, two kids and we never turned the TV on once."

Boulder Bay Travel Tips

Boulder Bay Cabins are Perfect for All Seasons

Whether you are looking to build fires under bright stars or build snowmen out of fresh snow, the quaint Boulder Bay cabins are ideal during all seasons for that peaceful getaway to nature. Cabins in Boulder Bay sit along the clear water of Big Bear Lake and are tucked away in the San Bernardino Mountains amongst dense forest and rolling hills. In the summer season, visitors hike or mountain-bike the many wilderness trails that wind through untouched woodland and offer sweeping views of mountain tops and valleys. With Boulder Bay cabins, you get all the experiences of camping but with the luxuries of home.

A True Winter Wonderland

Even though it's in Southern California, Big Bear Lake gets a lot of snow because of its high elevation. When the first flakes start falling atop Boulder Bay rental houses, vacationers don't head for the exits, instead even more arrive. It is the winter gem of Southern California, and is popular among locals and out-of-staters alike. A short distance from the cozy warmth of Boulder Bay rental houses are the slopes of Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Visitors can ski, snowboard or snowshoe the back country, and can definitely expect plenty of fresh powder.

Southern California's Premier Recreational Lake

The city's namesake, and the main reason visitors flock to Big Bear vacation rentals is, of course, the magnificent body of water in the middle of it all, Big Bear Lake. Rental houses in Boulder Bay are only steps away and guests can take advantage of all the water activities offered on Southern California's unrivaled recreational lake. Rent a boat and leisurely cruise the roughly seven miles of fresh blue water, or be a little more adventurous and try water skiing and parasailing. The lake is also a prime destination for anglers, full of a variety of fresh water fish.
