Meet the Newest Members of the Five Star Vacation Rentals Family

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Temperatures are starting to dip in Big Bear and we’re expecting the season’s first snow anytime. We’re almost booked solid for Thanksgiving, and we just added two new properties.

Sinatra’s Villa is a beautiful log cabin just a 5 minute walk to Snow Summit and quick drive into the Village. You’ll love the soaring ceiling in the great room, and the large deck has amazing forest views. It has 3 bedrooms with a loft, so there’s plenty of room for your party of up to 8 people.  We’ve packed this cabin with great diversions including a pool table, foosball table, Playstation, and a TV in every room.  We’re sure this one will quickly become a favorite, so be sure to book your stay right away.

Our second new addition is Pine Nest Chalet. This is a new purchase, and has all new furniture and appliances. And it’s a perfect choice for all our football fans. We’re including the NFL package, so you can get in some great time away in Big Bear and catch some great football games at the same time. Just add some beer and pizza, and this may well be the most relaxing vacation retreat you’ve ever had. After the game is over, you’ll have fun shooting some pool with the family, or dive into a lively game of darts.   You’ll also enjoy the beauty of the forest with the while you relax in the hot tub and take in the tree top views.

You can view all our Big Bear cabins at this link, or call us at a 310-780-3411.  We’ll be happy to help you put together the ideal getaway. We’ve got luxury vacation rentals in Big Bear including Park CityPalm Springs/La QuintaSouthern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  Regardless of which one of our luxury getaway locations you choose, you can be assured that we’re working to make sure your vacation will be one you’ll want to repeat again every year.

Be sure to download our new IOS and Android apps. These are a great tool to let your view our properties and book them while you’re on the go.

 

National S’mores Day is Almost Upon Us. Book Your Big Bear Vacation Rental Before It’s Too Late.

You look at the calendar and can’t believe that you did it again this year.  Summer is retreating quickly into Fall, and you have yet to gather the family for even a single special event or weekend away.  But don’t despair.  Five Star Vacation Rentals is just a phone call or mouse click away with a vacation that will have your entire family cheering with delight.

National S'mores Day is August 10th

Just in case you may need some further encouragement, we’ve pulled out our special events calendar and found dozens of worthy reasons to propel you out of your easy chair and into a luxury vacation estate or cabin rental in Big Bear.  Here’s just a sampling of worthy holidays on the August calendar:

As we mention in our title, National S’mores day is just around the bend on August 10th. Legend has it that this yummy treat was created by a group of Girl Scouts gathered around a campfire. Once they combined the melted marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers, they quickly started insisting, “We want s’more!” And a national treasure was born. You can keep your fancy French desserts. Just give us s’mores!

But August is full of fun commemorations you can celebrate in Big Bear. Leading up to National S’mores Day, you can enjoy National Raspberry Cream Pie Day on August 1st and National Ice Cream Sandwich Day on August 2nd. Due to a quirk in scheduling, National Watermelon Day and National Mustard Day both fall on August 3rd. We encourage you to celebrate both, but not simultaneously. We’re going to skip entirely any recommendation that you celebrate National Work Like a Dog Day on August 5th, and move immediately to National Wiggle Your Toes Day on August 6th. We can think of no better place to celebrate this one than with your feet dangling in the cool waters of Big Bear Lake.

National Bad Poetry Day is August 18th

There’s not space enough to list all the daily celebrations coming up in August, but you can choose your favorite from among National Bad Poetry Day, National Kiss and Make Up Day (our favorite), and National Frankenstein Day. And be prepared to create your own national holiday. Once you get settled into your luxurious Five Star Vacation Rental, you’ll quickly agree to create the “National We’re Going To Do This Again Next Summer Day.”

Start your annual celebration by viewing all our  Big Bear cabins and estates.   Or call us at 310-780-3411, and we’ll gladly help you choose the perfect cabin for your family to celebrate National Tooth Fairy Day (August 22nd).

And you are of course free to celebrate any of these worthy holidays at our other properties as well. Be sure to look at our luxury rentals in  Park CityPalm Springs/La QuintaSouthern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  We’re committed to making sure your vacation will be a great memory for your entire family.

More August Fun in Big Bear With Five Star Vacation Rentals

Plan Your July Big Bear Getaway!

Summer is in full swing, and it’s time to head up to Big Bear for some great family fun.  July is one of our favorite months on the mountain, because there’s so much going on.  Here’s just a sample of the fun you’ll have when you book your July getaway in one of our Five Star Vacation Rental luxury estates and cabins in Big Bear:

July 4th Celebration

Each year Big Bear hosts one of California’s largest fireworks displays, and it’s really an amazing event.  We all love a good fireworks show, but combine that with the beautiful reflections off the lake and the towering pines that ring the horizon, and you’ll soon see why so many people make this short trek every year.  The weather in July is usually great, and you can enjoy a relaxing time away from the heat and smog of the Southland while taking in one of our favorite patriotic holidays.

Take In a Show

Perhaps America’s most popular classic play, Rogers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma” is playing throughout July at the Big Bear Performing Arts Center. This play is great for the entire family, so grab your surrey, and make your way through corn that’s as high as . . . well you get the picture! For more details:  http://www.bigbeartheater.org.

Get Down With Some Bluegrass Music

Big Bear Bluegrass Festival runs July 12, 13 & 14, this year, and offers some of the best boot-stompin’ music to be found anywhere. The festival features fun hayrides and more than a few colorful characters wandering about in overalls with washboards. You’ll be amazed at the great music that can be created with utensils and laundry accessories! This is another event tailor made for the whole family, and we expect that you’ll all be dancin a jig quite soon after the music starts. See more info on their website at http://www.bigbearbluegrass.com.

Your Doctor Called. She Said You Need a Weekend Away In Big Bear.

Well, that may not be exactly what she said, but pay attention anyway.  A recent report out of the Mayo Clinic showed that stress has a tendency to invade virtually every area of our lives.  And when you take a close look at their findings, the results can be discouraging.

Many of us suffer stress due to increased workloads.  Stress causes a number of symptoms including decreased memory, various pains, fatigue, and less romantic interest.  But what is one of the primary effects of stress?  Decreased work efficiency.  So, you get stressed over having too much work, and the stress impairs your ability to complete your work.  How messed up is that? But don’t despair.  We’ve got a great solution for you.

A recent New York Times article showed that sufficient sleep, relaxation and vacation time can counteract virtually every adverse symptom you may be facing due to the stress in your life.  And here at Five Star Vacation Rentals, we just happen to be world-class experts at helping folks like you dive into depths of soothing relaxation unlike anything you’ve ever known.  Think of us as the “Vacation Doctors.”  Here’s what we prescribe:

Take at least two nights. Repeat as needed for relaxation:
For a romantic getaway, try our Slope Side at Bear Mountain cabin.  This is consistently one of our most popular cabins and once you arrive, you’ll see why.  The cabin is located just a few lots from the edge of the National Forest, so you’ll feel like you’re right on the edge of a forested wilderness.  Imagine the tranquility of an early-morning walk through the woods as you feel the crisp mountain air fill your lungs and listen to the muted symphony of birds.  Sit on a log for minute, and you’ll be able to watch the squirrels scurrying across the forest floor jumping from tree to tree.  No phone calls, and the nearest spreadsheet is a million miles away.  You’ll feel your blood pressure getting lower as your mood gets progressively higher.  You can view a virtual tour of this luxury cabin at this link.  See more details and photos here.  Or quickly grab the next available slot with our online booking calendar at this link.

Maybe you could use some away time with your extended family or a close group of friends.  Our Castle Glen Dream Estate is a huge hit with larger groups.  This rambling estate boasts 8 bedrooms with 7 bathrooms in 6700 square feet of space.  Grab a handful of your favorite movies and settle in for a movie night with the gang in the theater room.  Sink into the luxurious theater seating as the music rises during the opening credits, and you’ll see why this amazing cabin is quickly becoming a favorite with our guests. With room for 16 guests, a spa and amazing views, the only stress you’ll feel during your stay is when you start back down the hill to go home.  But don’t worry.  We’ll be ready for your next visit as soon as you are.  You can take a walk through with our virtual tour at this link.  This page has more details and photos.  The online calendar to book your stay right now is at this link.

And if you’d like to explore any of our other destinations, you can be confident that we’ve worked with equal diligence to make sure all of our properties provide a level of luxury and relaxation that you just can’t find anywhere else. 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.  Call us at 310-780-3411, and we’ll be happy to help you create the perfect getaway to relieve the stress in your life.  And be sure to follow us on Twitter and  Facebook.  This way you can be the first to know when we offer any last minute specials and discounts.

More Fun Events in Big Bear for May

In last week’s blog, we detailed a few of the great events happening in Big Bear during May.  You can see that blog at this link.  But we really only covered a handful of the fun things you’ll have to do during your stay with us in May.

Mother's Day is May 12th

We mentioned it last week, but it bears repeating.  May 12th is Mother’s Day, and it’s time you really showed her how much you appreciate all she does for you.  We understand that our wives often do things for us out of a sense of duty.  And other times their actions are simply because they love us.  You don’t have to be Dr. Phil to realize that if you take this opportunity to provide her with a spectacular demonstration of how much you really love her, she’ll have more of her thoughts toward you filled with love rather than duty.  Trust us.  The loving thoughts are much, much better.   You really need to do this.  Call us at 310-780-3411 to book your getaway for Mother’s Day.  But don’t delay.  We often sell out over that weekend.  Use this link to explore all of our luxury Big Bear estate cabins.

Get a Scare in Big Bear!

Returning for its third year on May 18th and 19th is the Big Bear Horro-Fi Film Festival at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center (39707 Big Bear Blvd). This is just too much fun. If you enjoy campy, funny, and occasionally terrifying films, you’ve really got to be here for this one. The events include panel discussions with the film makers and past years have seen some famous actors showing up as well.  If you’re a film buff, a film maker, or just want to have some great fun, be sure to get your tickets for this one.  You can get more details and a calendar of events on their website at www.bigbearhorrorfilmfest.com.

And for all you runners out there,  be sure to book your stay for the Big Bear Lake Memorial 5K Fun Run to Benefit “Wounded Warrior Project.” The 5k Fun Run is set to take place Sunday May 26, 2013 in The Village of Big Bear Lake, CA. The 3.1 mile road run starts in The Village and takes you through some of the scenic areas and neighborhoods of Big Bear. It’s a great way to support a great cause. Visit www.bigbearfunrun.com for more details.

Summer is one of our favorite times of the year around here.  We get calls from all over with people excited over their summer plans.  For many families, they’ve been planning for months to make sure they get everything as close to perfect as possible.  We love being a part of this planning process, and gladly work to find the best fit for your vacation wishes.

Don’t get us started about that little motel in Barstow we landed at late one night!  And we’ve had some fun in past blogs looking at the pitfalls you may encounter by planning a vacation anywhere but with us.  You can read those blogs here and here.

You can include us in your vacation planning with confidence knowing that we’re dedicated to helping you build a vacation that will be as hassel-free and fun as possible.  Browse our site, and you’ll see the many testimonials from our guests.  We’ve collected a handful of them in one of our past blogs here.

    Welcome Our Newest Big Bear Vacation Rental Cabin

    At Five Star Vacation Rentals, we’re always on the lookout for distinctive properties we can offer to our guests.  We’re very choosy, so we can make sure you’ll find the finest quality and top notch luxury regardless of which of our properties you may choose,.  Our newest property is “Grand Lakefront,” and it meets our standards without any exception.

    Located right on the lake, this amazing property is nestled in Big Bear’s most exclusive neighborhood. It’s perched on a hill overlooking the lake and includes 250 feet of lake frontage.  As you walk through the front door, you’ll realize the genius of the architect’s attention to design.  The entire home is built to accentuate the amazing lake views.  The home is constructed of full-round lodgepole pine logs from Montana.  The builder fully assembled the home first in Montana to check for a perfect fit.  The home was then disassembled, transported, and reassembled on the present site.  It’s a very expensive way to build a home.  But when you’re concerned with getting every last detail absolutely correct, it starts to make sense.  As you spend time in this beautiful home, you’ll begin to notice all the details that showcase the craftsmanship required to build it.  See more information on our Grand Lakefront page.

Two of the bedrooms open onto the outdoor patio, so it’s perfect for large parties or two families to share, so they can stay up as late as they want or sleep late without disturbing the other guests.  And when you step out on the patio, you’ll be looking out over the lake and the colorful custom landscaping.  The home is professionally decorated to enhance the feeling that you’re in your own private mountain lodge.   The gourmet kitchen will be a delight to the chef in your family, and you can enjoy your meals out on the wonderful viewing patio while you enjoy the warmth of the massive outdoor stone fireplace.

    As the glow from the fire grows dim late in the evening, you can gather the kids for some star gazing.  Enjoy locating the constellations, and watch as a steady parade of shooting stars makes their appearance.  We’re convinced this will be a home you’ll want to visit again and again.  Here are some more details:

    Bedroom #1 King with viewing window and private bath.

    Winter Fun and Golfing in Palm Springs/La Quinta With a Five Star Vacation Rental

    Enjoy a golf vacation this year.

    We got a call this week from our old aunt Clarisse in Duluth.  She usually calls us this time of year to talk about the weather, so we were prepared. It seems the weather in Duluth has been unseasonable warm for this time of year.  It’s only dipped below freezing 4 days this week.  But even with this apparent proof of global warming, Aunt Clarisse calls us each November to let us know she’s packing away her Bermuda shorts for the winter, and pulling down her suitcases.  And is that spare bedroom of ours still available for Thanksgiving?

    Well that got us to thinking.  How wonderful would it be if when your own aunt Clarisse calls (or Laura, or Betty, or Norma, or Susan), you could inform her you’re handling things a bit differently this year.  Yes, she’s always welcome to come visit, but no, she won’t be in the guest bedroom.  And she should also delay packing away her overly-plaid shorts.  You see, this year, you’re having the entire family join you for a winter getaway to a Five Star Vacation rental in Palm Springs/La Quinta. We think you should seriously consider this.

    For many people, Thanksgiving and Christmas are days filled with both fun and meaning.  We get to spend time with friends and relatives we don’t see too often, and we’re also able to enjoy some relaxing time recounting our many blessings away from the holiday rush.  And if you want to enjoy this time along with some outdoor activities and nice weather, there’s really no better place than in a Five Star Vacation Rental in the La Quinta/Palm Springs area.

    No snow here! Just amazing golf course views.

    Consider this: While our dear dear aunt Clarisse lives in an area where even the ice cubes migrate to warmer climates, you can plan the holiday of a lifetime for your extended family in one of our luxurious Southern California desert vacation rentals.  The average winter temperatures in La Quinta rarely drop below 60 during the day, so while all the folks back home may be shopping for parkas and cutting firewood, your entire party can enjoy the holidays in shorts and a light jacket. And while much of the country must pack away their golf clubs for the winter, you can make sure yours continue to get a workout. That’s a much better option, don’t you think?

    We’ve got two amazing properties available.  Our Spacious Modern Perfection at PGA West sits right on the golf course.  Imagine the looks you’ll get  back home when you let them know you spent your holidays playing golf with folks who have never seen a snow shovel.  This home is right on the 4th fairway and has both a pool and spa to relax in at the end of the day.  Palm Springs is close by with great shopping and outlet stores for last-minute gifts.

    Let the folks back home build snowmen. You can enjoy this view instead.

    Our La Quinta Country Club Home is an absolute gem.  This luxury home overlooks the fairway and has panoramic mountain and lake views.  Plus, it comes with access to the Mountain View Country Club, so you can enjoy golfing and maybe even get in a bit of celebrity watching.  And we know you’re going to want to spend some quality time in the infinity pool to enjoy the fairway views while you wrinkle up smiling at the amazing comfort and quality of this finely-crafted home.

    Call us today at 310-780-3411 to book your winter getaway in one of our Palm Springs/La Quinta luxury vacation rentals.  And if you’d prefer some snow for your winter vacation, you can view our Big Bear cabins on this page.  Please be sure to also look at our other luxury rentals in Park CitySouthern California BeachesMammoth Mountain, and Villa la Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.  As always, you can depend upon Five Star Vacation Rentals to ensure that any one of our vacation rental homes and cabins will meet and exceed your expectations.  We know that your vacation time is precious, and we are constantly working to make sure that your only regret will be that you couldn’t stay with us longer.
