We’re so excited about this, we can barely sit still. We received a phone call today from filmmaker Jillian O’Neil. She rented our Big Bear cabin #1 a while ago to use in a new film she was making, “A Separate Life.” And today she calls us to let us know the film was finished a while ago, and will be featured in the upcoming Big Bear Film Festival. Watch a trailer for the movie at this link. You’ll note that our cabin did not once flub its lines.
The film has turned out to be quite a success, and movie goers all around the world have been watching Jillian’s compelling drama acted out in our lovely cabin. The film was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, and Jillian won the Best New Director award from the Action On Film International Film Festival last summer. But as much as we love Jillian’s new film, we just couldn’t take our eyes off that lovely cabin in the background. . . . But don’t you expect that from us?
Jillian told us that her film is on the schedule at the Big Bear Film Festival for September 16th, and as we write this blog, the starring cabin is still available for that weekend. For all you film buffs out there, how cool would that be to go see the movie and then spend the weekend in the cabin where it was filmed? Call us right away at 310-780-3411 for this last minute booking.
And even if you’re not a film buff, this cabin is a consistent favorite with our guests. From the dramatic open ceilings to the large country kitchen, there’s a whole lot to like about this cabin. If you enjoy hiking, the national forest is only 3 lots away where you can hike to spots with incredible views of the lake. The Big Bear zoo and golf course are also within walking distance.
