Winter is on the Way

Are you feeling it yet? Winter is on the way, and with it will come our favorite time of year.  Winter brings so many fun things to Big Bear, and we often get booked solid as a result. There’s no time like the present to book your reservation for this great time of year.

Family on Ski LiftThe ski season officially opens this year on November 23rd. Early snow can push this forward, but late snow usually means the slopes will be machine groomed to start. Either way, our skiers will want to make sure they grab one of our great locations for the season. If you’ve ever skied Snow Summit or Bear Mountain, you’ve surely noticed there are cabins lining the slopes and a community of cabins within walking distance. As you can imagine, these are ideal for skiers, and here are a couple we rent:

9280550014Our Cabin #9 is a short walk to the slopes at Snow Summit. It’s on a quiet cul-de-sac with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and room for 11 guests. And when you’re not on the slopes, it’s a perfect retreat with a spa and all the comforts to let you relax and recuperate after a full day on the slopes. The master features a Jacuzzi tub, and there’s a spa for you all to share as well. It has a pool table, foosball, and granite counters in the kitchen.

Cabin 13Located right on the slopes at Bear Mountain is our Cabin #13. This features 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and room for 14 guests. That first morning you’ll find the amazing advantage of avoiding the long lines and frenzied parking when you can just strap on your skis and head right out your back door. There’s really nothing quite like it. And this one also caters to your relaxation off the slopes with a pool table, foosball, and spa.

We have plenty more luxury properties to choose from that are a quick walk or drive to the slopes. You can book your stay online or view all of our Big Bear cabins and luxury estates at this link.  Or give us a call at 310-780-3411, and we’ll help you choose a great property for your winter vacation or getaway.  And if you’d like to explore any of our other destinations, you can be assured that we’re committed to providing top quality cabins, estates, and condos for your next vacation getaway.  Here are links to our other properties in Nuevo Vallarta and La Quinta.


New Year’s Resolutions You Can Stick With

Oh sure, we all agree we need to drop that extra weight.  But let’s not waste a perfectly good New Year’s resolution on something as boring as that.  Let’s give wings to our resolutions, so we can embrace them, cherish them, and allow our inner child to jump up and down about them.  Here’s one everybody can get behind: “I’m going to rent a Five Star Vacation Rental luxury cabin in Big Bear and go skiing!”  Now you’re talking our language.

When you get back from the slopes . . .

We’re right in the thick of ski season, and we suggest you don’t delay getting your reservations. Our bookings in Big Bear always run near capacity during the ski season, and every year we have some folks who miss the season entirely because they delay getting their cabin booked with us.  Don’t be that guy.  Resolve today that you’ll allow nothing to stop you from enjoying some of Southern California’s finest skiing followed by relaxing in one of Southern California’s finest cabins.  It’s a combination that is unbeatable and leads to many return trips.  You’ll quickly learn why.  There’s really nothing that compares with soothing some of your tired muscles after a long day on the slopes by soaking in one of our hot tubs.  And when you finally dry off and wander back into the cabin, you’ll be amazed at the great luxury that surrounds you.  You and your guests will enjoy the finest quality lodging available in Big Bear, and then wake refreshed the following morning to do it all again.  It’s a wonderful way to recharge your batteries.  Want to save some money both on your skiing and our cabin? Book your stay during the week.  The slopes are less crowded, and the weekday rates are lower both on our cabins and on the slopes.  Give us a call at 310-780-3411, and we’ll be happy to help you plan a great getaway.

And as if wonderful skiing weren’t enough, Big Bear also has a wide variety of snow play activities to keep you busy off the slopes as well.  Kids and adults alike love the thrill of the downhill runs at Big Bear Alpine Slide and Big Bear Snow Play.  Big Bear Alpine Slide has downhill runs on sleds in tracks that will have you feeling like an Olympic luge champion.  And you can also have some good old bouncing fun on the inner tube slide hills at both locations.  Big Bear Snow Play has a great “Magic Carpet” that whisks you back to the top of the slope after each run in a Plexiglass-enclosed moving sidewalk to protect you from the elements.  Both spots are open for the entire snow season, and offer a great alternative for families with little ones who may not be ready for the slopes, or just in search of a very fun time.  Visit their websites for more info on hours and tickets: and

And there’s always fine dining and great shopping available in the Village.  An afternoon stroll through the shops there always includes some delightful gift ideas and usually something that will easily find it’s way into your decor back home.  It’s a great way to spend some time away from the slopes and just relax with the family.

But whatever is involved in your idea of a perfect getaway, we’ve got you covered.  And if you’d like to explore any of our other destinations, you can be assured that we’re committed to providing top quality cabins, estates, and condos for your next vacation getaway.  Here are links to our other properties in  Park City, UtahPalm Springs/La Quinta Southern California Beaches Mammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  Give us a call at 310-780-3411, and we’ll be happy to help you make the reservation for your next getaway.
