More Fun Events in Big Bear for May

In last week’s blog, we detailed a few of the great events happening in Big Bear during May.  You can see that blog at this link.  But we really only covered a handful of the fun things you’ll have to do during your stay with us in May.

Mother's Day is May 12th

We mentioned it last week, but it bears repeating.  May 12th is Mother’s Day, and it’s time you really showed her how much you appreciate all she does for you.  We understand that our wives often do things for us out of a sense of duty.  And other times their actions are simply because they love us.  You don’t have to be Dr. Phil to realize that if you take this opportunity to provide her with a spectacular demonstration of how much you really love her, she’ll have more of her thoughts toward you filled with love rather than duty.  Trust us.  The loving thoughts are much, much better.   You really need to do this.  Call us at 310-780-3411 to book your getaway for Mother’s Day.  But don’t delay.  We often sell out over that weekend.  Use this link to explore all of our luxury Big Bear estate cabins.

Get a Scare in Big Bear!

Returning for its third year on May 18th and 19th is the Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center (39707 Big Bear Blvd). This is just too much fun. If you enjoy campy, funny, and occasionally terrifying films, you’ve really got to be here for this one. The events include panel discussions with the film makers and past years have seen some famous actors showing up as well.  If you’re a film buff, a film maker, or just want to have some great fun, be sure to get your tickets for this one.  You can get more details and a calendar of events on their website at

And for all you runners out there,  be sure to book your stay for the Big Bear Lake Memorial 5K Fun Run to Benefit “Wounded Warrior Project.” The 5k Fun Run is set to take place Sunday May 26, 2013 in The Village of Big Bear Lake, CA. The 3.1 mile road run starts in The Village and takes you through some of the scenic areas and neighborhoods of Big Bear. It’s a great way to support a great cause. Visit for more details.
