What’s Your New Year’s Resolution? We’ve Got A Suggestion!

If your house is like ours, we’re still finding bits of wrapping paper and ribbons scattered around after our Christmas morning clean up.  The kids are dividing their time equally between playing with their new toys and playing with the boxes they came in.

We had the most amazing Christmas dinner.  Grandma volunteered to cook a turkey with her patented dressing, so it was like Thanksgiving 2.0.  Shortly after the last bite of pumpkin pie was consumed, the dads in attendance dutifully fell straight into a winter’s nap on the sofa and recliner.  We still think this is just a ploy to get out of helping with cleanup, but the moms were especially charitable and no complaints were heard.

As soon as the cleanup began, our thoughts turned to the week ahead and celebrating the new year with our resolutions.  We all agreed that we need to exercise more, manage our money better, and spend more time with family.  Each of these is admirable, but seem to repeat each and every year.  So this year,  we want to share with you a truly great idea that may well take care of all three of these resolutions: Get away to Big Bear in Five Star Vacation Rental cabin or estate.

Yes, we’re likely a wee bit biased on this, but it’s still a worthy idea.  Big Bear is simply breathtaking this time of year, and the recent storms have blanketed the mountain with a good supply of snow.  This means all the snow features are open, and you’ll have more snow activities available to keep you active.  At the bottom of the ski run you’ll be breathless both from the thrill of the run, and the exercise involved.  You can check that one off your list.

Next, we agree that wise money management is essential.  Most families are feeling some of the squeeze from today’s economy.  Thankfully, that squeeze doesn’t need to impact your plans.  A Five Star Vacation Rental cabin in Big Bear is an amazing value.  For about the cost of an average upscale hotel, you can enjoy far more with luxury, privacy, and room to breathe in a Five Star Vacation Rental.  Many of our cabins have hot tubs and lake or forest views.  Couple this with the fully equipped kitchens in our cabins, and you’ll start to see the amazing difference in value you get with Five Star.  And unlike piling the entire family into a single hotel room, your Five Star Vacation Rental has enough bedrooms to allow dad to snore blissfully loud without ever disturbing the rest of the family. That alone is worth the price of admission.

But the most important resolution is spending more time with your family.  A Five Star Vacation Rental is perfect for this.  Unlike a hotel room, with Five Star Big Bear cabins, you can cook your own meals and eat together in your dining room.  Instead of packing up the entire family, piling into the car, and then waiting to get seated in a pricey restaurant, you can just relax and enjoy a meal together in your luxury cabin.  Don’t feel like cooking?  Order take out and relax by the fire as you enjoy each other.  Another resolution accomplished.
