The What and Where of Big Bear

Here in Big Bear, we call virtually everything a "cabin." Whether a small, charming, vintage 1-bedroom government lease or a palatial mansion at the top of Castle Glen, our cabins can be located in the middle of town, on the lake, or backing up to National Forest. Vacation rentals are found throughout the valley, with the most popular closest to the ski resorts.

A Mountain Lifestyle

Big Bear Lake is a fantastic four-season alpine resort community nestled in the San Bernardino mountains, 100 miles east of Los Angeles. The public lake sits at an elevation of 6,750 feet above sea level and the Big Bear Valley is surrounded entirely by National Forest. Outdoor activities here are plentiful. Big Bear Lake is truly a breath of fresh air.
