July in Big Bear

We’re just a couple of weeks away from the big Fourth of July celebration in Big Bear, and there’s still time to book your family getaway.

If you’ve never experienced Independence Day in Big Bear, you’re missing out.  First off, the fireworks display rates as one of the biggest in all of California.  And there’s nothing like the beauty of watching the explosions and light trails as they are reflected off the surface of the lake.  Couple this experience with the lavish luxury of a Five Star Vacation Rental, and you’ve got a recipe for a getaway the family will be talking about with fondness for years to come.

The Fawnskin Doo Dah parade is scheduled for July 23rd. If you’ve never been, it’s a lot of fun.  It’s still a lot of fun even if you have been.  There’s a chili cookoff and a wacky parade.  The parade is sometimes short, sometimes long, every time funny.

The Big Bear Discovery Center is having lots of great events in July.  On Saturdays and Sundays the entire family can enjoy guided nature walks where you can explore more of the natural beauty that surrounds us in Big Bear, and learn some fascinating history as well.  On Saturday the 23rd, you can enjoy a musical evening with rocker John Waite.  For more details visit their website at http://www.bigbear.com/event/?id=10957

But if you’re looking for a something else, we also maintain rentals in  Nuevo VallartaMammoth MountainPark CitySouthern California Beaches, and La Quinta. No matter what city you are visiting, staying in a Five Star Vacation Rental property will ensure that you experience the absolute best in luxury accommodations. We would be glad to help you plan your vacation to Big Bear or elsewhere, so if you would like more information, you can reach out to us by calling 310-780-3411.

Woman with stains on shirt

As adults we’re forced to feed and clothe both ourselves and our children.  We have bills to pay, and we face the heartbreak of staining our favorite shirt or brushing against wet paint in our lucky jeans. Life is not fair.

While Five Star Vacation Rentals cannot resolve the cosmic truth of unfairness, we can help you break your personal cycle of bad choices.  Does this describe you? The weekend arrives, and you’re just hanging out. You wander out to the garage, and see your skis over in a dark corner gathering dust. Then you remember that Big Bear has a huge snowpack with machine groomed powder. You vow that next weekend will be different.  You vow that you will never suffer the regret of another wasted weekend.

We’re here to help you resolve your regret and live life to the fullest.  We have collected the finest luxury cabins and estates on this or any other planet.  We have convenient booking on our website, and a helpful staff available to answer any questions or help you choose among our many great properties.

Pack Your Bags! We’ve Got Five Star Luxury Big Bear Cabins and Great Ski Conditions

The recent storms have finally passed, but they’ve left behind some great ski conditions in the Big Bear area.  If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to pack up for your ski getaway, wait no longer!  Check ahead when you come, but the roads are clear with no chains required, so it’s an easy drive to an amazing getaway.  Here’s the current report from Bear Mountain:

There are lots of  beginner jumps and rails at chair 6, while chair 5 is lined with intermediate jumps, hips, jibs, the halfpipes, and a new wall ride. Over on chair 9 there are more intermediate features as well as lots of advanced and some expert features. Chair 9 has lots of skate style down bars, wall-rides, boxes, and tubes of all sorts. We are definitely enjoying the finest park set-up of the 2012-2013 season. Freestyle camp is a great way to comfortable improve with friendly and talented instructors. We are out of the cold front which allowed for some great snowmaking, and back into classic Southern California sun shine …

And here’s the report from Snow Summit:

Park Staff has also made a few new changes to Westridge, including two skill builder boxes and a mini bank halfpipe at the top of Chair 2. After hitting the new features, you have your choice of lapping Summit Run or continuing through the park, which has a new feature count of 32 jibs and 41 snow features! The snow coverage is excellent and we’re expecting sunny skies all weekend long. Be sure to make reservations if you’re headed up for the holiday to guarantee your spot on the snow.

Snow Summit and Bear Mountain limit the number of lift tickets sold each day to reduce crowding both on the slopes and the lifts.  Your tickets will work for either location, and there’ s a free shuttle bus that runs every half hour between the two.  They’ve made every provision to make sure you’re able to get in the maximum amount of skiing on your getaway.  Be sure to buy your lift tickets ahead of time to make sure they’re not sold out.  Here’s the link to their online store: https://ecommerce.snowsummit.com/e-commerce/

And of course, we strongly recommend you also be sure to reserve one of our luxury Big Bear cabins for your stay.  We have both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit cabins available, so you can get as close to the slopes as you wish.  We’re experts at helping families put together amazing Big Bear family vacations.  When you couple a great day of skiing with a relaxing stay at one of our luxury resort cabins, the only thing you’ll worry about is how you’re going to get the family to ever leave such fun and luxury.  But not to worry.  We’ll gladly help you book your return stay too!  You can view all our Big Bear cabin rentals at this link.

There’s also great skiing right now at Park City and Mammoth Mountain, so be sure to call us about booking a luxury vacation rental for these destinations as well.

Just give us a call at 310-780-3411, and we’ll be glad to help you book your dream vacation in one of our 5 Star vacation rentals.
