If you get married in the Big Bear area, please consider my estate for your lodging and Apples Bed & Breakfast as your venue.

Activities and Attractions in Big Bear...

Welcome to Big Bear Lake, California. Big Bear is a small community that sits in the mountains above the city of San Bernardino. You can hike in the beautiful National Forest or grab your bike for a trip on one of the many riding trails. If you want to get wet, take a boat on the lake for a leisurely afternoon of fishing or swimming. Plenty of places to breathe the fresh air and enjoy the blue skies. If you like skiing, snowboarding or just playing in the snow, there are two ski resorts and two snow play areas for the whole family to enjoy. There are several restaurants to choose from ranging from fast food to fancy dining. If you're looking for a peaceful quiet afternoon, grab a hot dog and head to the lake or local park to read and relax!

Why Laurie Kagan chose Fox Farm

I wanted people to enjoy the beauty and fresh air the mountain has to offer. Big Bear is the perfect quick get away with great restaurants, theaters and shopping. All of my family loves Big Bear.

What makes this estate unique

The beauty of one of the homes built by the number one builder in Big Bear. The large two story windows overlooking a lovely landscaped yard with running brook. Great kitchen for all to pitch in to help cook. You will seem like you have died and gone to heaven.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our entire family (12 total) stayed here to celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. It easily accommodated all of us. There was plenty of room for all of us to just hang out and cook together or play games in the gazebo. Weather was perfect. Kids loved the hot tub too. Not a single detail was left out. Laurie thought of everything! There is so much to do nearby as well. An absolutely beautiful retreat

Laurie and her staff were wonderful to work with. The home is gorgeous and spacious. The kitchen is enormous and has everything you need, and the living room is a wonderful spot to relax and chat. I'd definitely recommend this place!

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The rental was even more than we expected. A wonderfully decorated and large home situated among tall trees and rock ponds. The deer statues add so much. We hope to come back to Big Bear Lake and stay here next summer. The smell of the mountain air is magnificent. We highly recommend this luxurious estate.

The house and property were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful rental! We enjoyed having such wonderful surroundings and space, which there is plenty of! We had a great time in Big Bear and would recommend this rental to everyone. The yards make you feel like your at a park! It was so nice to have a lovely cabin home in the mountains with luscious yards! The property is more beautiful than the pictures convey!

Stunning home in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous property.... plenty of room for 3 couples..... great backyard - peaceful & soothing.... small brook running through it added the feel of being in a private forest. Just what we needed! Our family reunion was so enjoyable. Kitchen had plenty of space for us all to prepare meals. The living room was comfortable & well appointed. We had a fabulous time; can't wait till next year!!
