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.

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.

We planned a Big Bear trip in late March with the expectation that there would still be snow, *sigh, there was no snow other than snow summit. Our faulty planning, which gave us a major let down, but this house rental, was just, perfect!! Made our trip worth while. Everything from the check-in instructions to the flexible check-out was a breeze. Instructions were down to a T, have question? Read the email or the cute index album left on the kitchen counter. Amazing house sooo roomy, the backyard alone was suffice enough for our trip to be exactly what we needed to relax and unwind. Kitchen was fully equipped, bathrooms stocked, and clean sheets galore. Everything was clean! Just amazing and dreamy rental!! Definitely will be booking in the future again!
This cabin was perfect for our group! We had an awesome time & hope to stay here again!
This year was our 5th annual girls and kids trip. This was by far the best cabin we have stayed in (We have stayed somewhere different each year)! We would highly recommend this cabin! It was clean, spacious, accommodating & convenient!
The property was spacious and the kitchen is definitely one of the best I've seen.
The place was clean and yard is well kept. Would definitely rent again!!
Our family had a great time. The house was beautiful and was very big. Just wish there was snow.. will definitely stay there again.
Great location and a beautiful home!
The house was great for a group of 8 guys up for a church retreat. Beds were comfortable, the back yard made you feel like you were out in the woods and the house was cozy. Great place!
Great house. We were a little disappointed we couldn't have access to the garage, but everything else was perfect.
