  • Very nice cabin

    "I spent the weekend with friends in this very nice cabin. I spoke to the owner a couple of times before the stay and she was very friendly and helpful. I've stayed in other VRBO properties before and by far Marta was the best owner. The cabin is everything that was stated, very clean, good view of the mountains, and a great hot tub. After I left Marta was over the top helpful in helping me retrieve a Netfix DVD I left in the cabin. I recommend staying there."

  • Immaculate and tastefully decorated

    "Our family spent a weekend in this fabulous rental. Upon arriving, we discovered a true gem! The decor was tastefully displayed with just the right amount of both ambience and style. This is the first cabin we have stayed in that was light, bright and not overdone with kitschy dated knick knacks everywhere and dark worn carpet! The owner has created a truly roomy and relaxing rental that is cozy yet has all the modern amenities to pamper the most discerning client. I can only think of one small glitch that we observed during our stay - which was a burnt out light bulb in one of the ceiling fixtures. Bulbs burn out and I notified Michelle so that she was aware. I received a timely response and a sincere apology from Michelle which demonstrated a truly exceptional and personal dedication that other potential renters should make note of. Our family has already started planning a return trip for this summer! Kudos to Michelle and her property!"

  • Great getaway!

    "We had three families, with a total of 3 small children. The cabin was wonderful. Could have easily accommodated more kids as well. Great location with a swim beach and park next door and amazing unobstructed view of the lake. Also, the owners are very easy to work with and really help you figure everything out quick so you can enjoy your time at the lake. Great experience!"

Big Bear Travel Tips

Big Bear Lake rests peacefully within the wooded groves of the San Bernardino National Forest, presenting guests with a wide selection of outdoor excursions. The little town plays host to hordes of natural enthusiasts, who make the trip from urban communities across the world. The area is home to quite a few mountains, an expansive lake and plenty of indigenous trees, making it a prime locale for a number of activities.

The Great Outdoors

As the warm winds of summer turn crisp and the leaves on the trees begin their transition to a warmer spectrum of hues, Big Bear Lake and the surrounding area are full of gorgeous vistas provided by autumn’s embrace during one of many outdoors excursions available to guests. The months of fall offer mild temperatures for visitors to enjoy some of the nation’s best outdoor activities.

- Hiking and biking around town on the meandering paths that wind throughout the forest is an excellent way to see the majestic beauty that envelops Big Bear in the fall. An exquisite palette of natural colors dominates the landscape, saturating your gaze with deep crimson, rustic ochre, mellow amber and rich sienna. If you need to rent a bicycle, try the Chains Required Bike Shop, located in the village. The friendly staff will outfit you with all the gear you need to enjoy a day within the confines of natural sanctuaries.

- Equestrians will enjoy a lengthy gallop on the back of a trusty steed at the Baldwin Lake Stables. The stables are located on the east end of Big Bear Valley, where you’ll find some of the most beautiful trails in California, some of which have been in operation for over 25 years. You’ll experience an overwhelming sense of peace and tranquility as you and your hoofed escort trot under the canopy of wooded groves or ascend to the peaks of towering mountains. The stables are open year-round, and guided tours are available if you’re new to the area.

Winter brings flurries of fresh snowfall to the area and allows visitors to engage in a variety of cold weather activities. Be sure to pack a pair of warm gloves, a stocking hat and your best pair of long underwear to avoid feeling the chilly conditions that set in during the waning months of the year. The village takes on a resplendent blanket of white and offers guests the opportunity to participate in some frosty fun.

- Skiing and snowboarding are wildly popular among visitors, and an array of downhill slopes on two different mountains await all who venture to this winter wonderland. Lift tickets can be used at either Snow Summit or Bear Mountain, and rental equipment is readily available at a number of different outfitters around town. Whether its your first experience on skis or you’re a seasoned downhill veteran, the mountain slopes are sure to provide an excellent and exciting day for all who make their way to the peaks. Big Bear features two of the largest and most advanced snowmaking systems in the world, so conditions are never far from optimal. With more than 436 developed acres, 26 lifts and 1,800 vertical feet, your trip to the frozen peaks of Big Bear will surely be an adventure to remember.

- Sledding, tubing and other snow follies are available to guests who aren’t quite ready to brave the steep downhill courses of the mountains. Big Bear Snow Play was once a ski hill known as Rebel Ridge that has been transformed into Southern California’s longest sledding hill. The magic carpet uphill lift eliminates the steep trudge through knee-deep snow following a run and enables guests to have more fun during their excursion. The Alpine Slide at Magic Mountain offers visitors a chance to try out an authentic bobsledding run aboard a sturdy toboggan or inflated tube.

After the chilling winds of winter recede into the north, Big Bear blossoms into a lush, green oasis filled with perennial foliage and an eruption of wildflowers. The pine-scented forests and expansive lake provide visitors with a great opportunities to partake in some warm weather fun.

- Fishing spots are plentiful all over the area, and present guests with the option to reel in a keeper or two. Big Bear Lake is an expansive body of water that contains a wide range of species, including trout, bass, bluegills, catfish, crappies and sunfish. Charter a tour or rent a vessel at one of the many marinas found along the shores of the lake. Anglers will enjoy moderate weather throughout the spring, and summer temperatures rarely break 90 degrees, making this an ideal destination for travelers interested in a leisurely day on the water.

- Golfers will find ample opportunities to test out their game at the Big Bear Mountain Golf Course. Resting at an elevation of 7,000 feet, the course will allow for some monstrous drives that cut through the thin mountain air. Finely trimmed fairways and manicured greens complete the package, and provide some exquisite vistas of the area's natural foliage and landscape.
