The Joys of Spring Break in Big Bear

 Nothing inspires enthusiasm in a kid’s heart quite like the promise of a break from school. Spring break is second only to summer in its ability to give a student the courage and perseverance needed to carry through weeks and weeks of school work. Spring break is coming up, in fact, and you’ve likely been fielding questions from kids about what activities are planned. Your kids don’t have to be the only ones getting a break, though. You can plan a getaway for the entire family that will refresh, rejuvenate, and reunite you all. A luxury cabin in Big Bear is the destination for all the Spring Break fun a family can handle.

Bambina su cavalloAs we’ve mentioned, March is a perfect time of year to visit Big Bear for many reasons. Though the landscapes in the town are always beautiful, there’s an ethereal charm that comes as seasons transition, and it’s an optimal time to embark on activities like a nature walk. You can wander through the mountainous forests to watch birds and squirrels. If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of some larger wildlife, or spy on the deer that often frolic among the trees. Sights like this are a welcome break from the monotony of school, but they can still provide valuable learning opportunities.

If kids want to get even more up-close-and-personal with animals, horseback riding in Big Bear is the perfect chance to do so. Baldwin Lake Stables is just one provider that offers pony rides, horseback riding in nature, and a small petting zoo. Nothing beats spending Spring Break riding horses and relaxing in the comfort of a luxurious cabin in Big Bear.

Five Star Vacation Rental offers cabins with stunning views, gourmet kitchens, and unparalleled luxury. Spring Break only comes once a year, and when it does, you should make the most of the chance to plan a getaway. Our rentals truly make the difference between a good vacation and a great one. If you’re ready to have the Big Bear adventure of a lifetime, spend it in the comfort of a premium vacation rental.

Big Bear is our top Spring Break destination, but if you’re looking for a more exotic vacation, we also maintain rentals in  Nuevo Vallarta, Mammoth Mountain, Park City, Southern 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.

Where Are You Spending Spring Break?

Spring Break is an exciting time for many families.  For kids in school, it marks the official beginning of the end of the school year.  Parents can see it as a much-needed respite from the daily grind and a great opportunity to plan some fun family time to recharge your batteries.  But if you don’t make plans, it can sneak up on you.  You don’t want to be that family that returns from the break with nothing more to report than binge watching old “Dragnet” episodes on Netflix.

Thanks to the colder weather this year, most of the slopes at Big Bear remain open.  And with temps still below freezing at night, they’re making more snow most nights.  This could be your last chance to get in some good skiing before spring arrives.  It’s a great chance to get away as a family and enjoy both some great fun on the slopes and some relaxation in the luxury of a Five Star Vacation Rental cabin or estate in Big Bear. Pick one of our cabins with a hot tub, and it’ll be even better.  Imagine all of you climbing into the steaming waters as you recount your adventures from the slopes that day.  Once you’re thoroughly warmed and soaked, you can all retire to the fireplace and relax with hot chocolate in front of the crackling fireplace.  This will make for an infinitely better story to tell when you all return at the end of your break.

If you’d prefer a warmer getaway for Spring Break, we suggest you give us a call about booking a week in our beachside resort Villa la Estancia in Puerto Nuevo, Mexico.  It’s a quick flight out of LAX and you’ll enjoy the warmer weather and sandy beaches just a few short hours after you leave the traffic and pressure of Southern California.   This resort has an all-inclusive option that allows you to enjoy the award-winning on site restaurants and meals without ever pulling out your wallet during your stay.  Call us for details.

Our Prediction: The Snow Will Melt, and Spring Will Arrive

We’re usually hesitant to make predictions.  We’re just not good at probabilities.  The most profitable trip we ever took to Vegas involved missing our plane and skipping the trip entirely.  We didn’t lose a thing.  But we do have a couple of predictions, and we’re confident they don’t require any special skills to declare they’re true.

First, we know that the snow is going to melt.  Snow conditions are still good right now at both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit, so this is a great time to book a quick ski getaway.  If you don’t have plans for Valentine’s Day yet, you could make a romantic weekend of it.  Spend some time on the slopes and relax in front of a romantic crackling fire in the evening.  Choose one of our luxury cabins with a spa, and add a relaxing time together with the soothing warm waters to help you wind down.  It could be an amazing time both on and off the slopes.

Our next prediction has a near certain outcome as well.  Spring will arrive.  A quick review of history shows that spring has arrived almost every year for a very long time.  Spring is of course a mixed blessing.  It marks the end of winter and the ski season, but it also brings spring break.  Most local schools are taking off the last week of March.  It’s a great chance to plan a getaway for the family.  Some of our cabins can accommodate large groups, so you can take all the neighborhood kids with you.  It’s a great chance to keep the family together for a vacation in the amazing luxury of a Five Star Vacation Rental cabin or estate in Big Bear.

Was One of Your New Year’s Resolutions To Stop Procrastinating?

Some of us are worse than others, but we all are prone to procrastination.  It seems it’s just part of the human condition.  Sometimes there’s really no good reason for it. Other times we have very important reasons like looking up the meaning of the word, “apanthropinization.”  And still other times it’s just Saturday and we’re entitled to disengage from any meaningful interaction with the reality of our lives.  Well, we’re here just like your old Aunt Valentina to encourage you to stop putting off your plans for some very important dates ahead.  But unlike her, we’re willing to step up with some solutions beyond simply wagging our finger in your face.

To make things simpler for you, we’re giving you a heads up today about some important dates that offer great opportunities to end your procrastinating and plan a great getaway to Big Bear.

Have you checked the calendar?  Valentine’s day is less than a month away.   Please tell us that you’re not seriously still thinking that after years of the same old CCFDO (Candy, Card, Flowers, Dinner Out), she’s not entitled to something a bit better this year.  And have either of you considered the possibility that a grander expression of your love and appreciation may well result in a grander expression of love and appreciation back your way?  We can’t imagine any possible down side to that.

Another good reason to hop on this one is that we may well be sold out for Valentine’s Day.  The date falls on a Saturday this year, so a weekend getaway will be even more popular than in previous years.  Prove to your spouse that you can conquer procrastination and book your Valentine’s Day romantic getaway today!  Once you’ve secured one of our luxury vacation rental cabins in Big Bear, you can begin to plan for that moment as you’re being smothered with grateful kisses.  You can briefly break away from that affectionate embrace and with all modesty state, “You know, I’ve been planning this for weeks.”  Mission accomplished.

Next on the agenda is Spring Break.  We’ll have more on that in a later blog post, but it’s another busy time for us.  You’re wise to plan ahead.  Most schools will observe Spring Break starting the last week of March, so — don’t make us say it — don’t procrastinate!  Call us today at 310-800-5454, and we’ll help you find the ideal vacation rental for your getaway.  Did you know that we have strategically acquired several luxury properties that sit side-by-side?  This is perfect if you want to plan a big outing for multiple families or large groups.  Call us and we’ll check to see what’s available for the dates you have in mind.
