Thanksgiving in Big Bear

Are you having the family over for Thanksgiving?  It’s a holiday tradition for many families to have a big dinner hosted for the extended family and friends for Thanksgiving. It can also be a time when relatives from the far flung corners of the country gather to enjoy one another’s company, get caught up on things, and enjoy a time to be thankful over a great meal.

One challenge that faces many families at these events is finding enough space for all the visiting relatives.  It can be logistical nightmare, and too often ends with a couple of uncles and cousins stretching out on hideaway beds or taking over the living room sofas for extra sleeping space.  Maybe you’re thinking of turning one of the kid’s rooms into something resembling the barracks at an army base with a couple rows of bunk beds crammed into the space.

When morning arrives, you can never have enough bathrooms.  It’s one thing to lay out some extra mattresses for sleeping, but how do you add a couple more bathrooms to meet the needs of your guests?

And for those of you who choose to put the relatives up at local hotels or motels, your trouble just gets shifted from finding enough beds to finding enough cars to collect them all and get them together for the family events.

Well, you don’t have to worry about it. At Five Star Vacation Rentals, we’ve got all the beds and bathrooms your family needs.

Bring Your Family To Big Bear For Thanksgiving

The holiday season is upon us, and you may already be feeling some of the usual pressures.  Where will you find room for the new relatives?  How many different tables will you need to set up this year?  Will you need to limit your number of guests?

If your home is the usual holiday destination, it can be daunting to accommodate them all each year as your family grows with new kids and spouses.  Well, we’ve got a perfect solution.  Rent one of our Five Star Vacation Rental luxury cabins in Big Bear!  It’s a great option for big families, and provides the entire family with a memorable treat.  But as you can imagine, we are usually booked solid for that weekend. Be sure to call us right away to grab one of our luxury vacation rentals.

You’ll have a few tasty options for your Thanksgiving getaway.  Stillwells Restaurant inside the Northwoods Resort is a popular destination for many folks.  Just imagine having a great Thanksgiving meal (or their usual scrumptious buffet) and have absolutely zero dishes to do when you’re done.  Stillwells requires reservations, so be sure to call well in advance (909) 866-3121 ext. 7885 to be sure you get space set aside for your group. You’ll enjoy great food, relaxing time with your family, and the freedom to walk away from a huge pile of dirty dishes. It’s almost too good to imagine.

Another great option is to serve your family and guests a pre-cooked meal at your vacation rental cabin.  Both Staters Brothers and Vons in Big Bear are offering full Thanksgiving meals with all the fixings.  You can choose from Turkey, Ham, or Prime Rib.  For larger groups, mix and match to provide a greater variety for your family.  You’ll also need to order these in advance.  You can reach Stater Brothers at (909) 866-5211, and Vons at (909) 866-8459. Be sure to buy some nice disposable plates and cups, so your Thanksgiving clean up will be mostly with a trash bag instead of a dish rag!

We often have snow on the ground during Thanksgiving, so be sure to plan ahead and pack your skis.  This could be a weekend you’ll remember for a long time as a great time with family, some great food, and amazing skiing.  The only unpleasant part of the entire experience is when you have to pack up and return to the real world.
