This is a post from last year, but every year at this time when Big Bear Lake opens for boating and fishing, I think of my grandparents and all of the memories I have of spending time with them on the lake. So in case you missed it, here it is again.

Miss you Grandma and Grandpa…

When I was a kid, my grandparents loved to take myself and my siblings fishing on Big Bear Lake. They had a pretty nice boat that they had named ‘The Jennifer Lynn’ after my oldest sister. Sometimes they would take all of us kids, sometimes we would go with them individually – but a good time was always in store.

Now my Grandpa was a kind and sweet man, but he was also pretty stubborn about things. We always had to use proper words around him – no slang was allowed. He was a bit fussy and liked things just so. I guess he was a bit of a perfectionist (hmmm…I guess I got that from him :) ) so I was always a bit on guard around him.

Grandma on the other hand, ACTED that way around him, but she liked to be silly and ‘naughty’ on the sly. My mom told me stories about how when she was a kid, every once in awhile her mom would let her hide in the closet until Grandpa went to work and then let her play hooky from school and they would go do something fun.

As most men are, my Grandpa was pretty competitive and really didn’t like to lose. Unfortunately for him, my Grandma was a very lucky fisherwoman. Very lucky. He would use all of these fancy lures and specialty baits and catch maybe one little blue gill. Grandma would slap some velveeta cheese on a hook and catch so many trout she would have to throw them back. Grandpa would get so mad! He just couldn’t figure it out. And when he wasn’t looking, she would look over at me and just giggle and giggle. Those were fun times and wonderful memories.

The lake is open for the season and the fishing is great! Come on up to Big Bear and make your own special memories. Visit RS Vacations online and book your Big Bear Getaway today!!

————————————————–
WHAT GUESTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT LAGUNITA LAKEFRONT:* I’ve been coming to this home for many years. I am an elementary school teacher, and this place has always reminded me of the story of the charming little house that maintains it’s character and style as the New York City high rise buildings grow up around it. This cottage on the lake is obviously a well loved family home, meticulously maintained and constantly being improved upon. There has never been a time when I haven’t come up to find something new or different. This time was no exception. The beds, linens, and towels are all new and the kitchen pots and pans and utensils have all been replaced. Lorri’s renovation and design background is clearly evident and her sense of style is obvious. The lake house would clearly attract a very discerning clientele, but as for myself, there is nothing more glorious than falling asleep in the lakeside bedroom with the doors open, the soft breeze blowing in, and the sound of fish jumping in the lake. And I have never felt closer to God than when sitting on the dock at night surrounded by the stars. Renters, be prepared to fall in love with the place and never want to leave!
–Debra W. 7/2013

*Thanks! We want to book for next year. We always have such a great time at this house!
–Kay M. 7/2013

*We had a blast and the house was really charming. The whole family had so much fun that they didn’t want to come back home!! It was a nice relaxing weekend. Thanks so much for your help.
–Debbie A. 6/2013

*I can’t say enough about this lovely home on the water! It was so very clean, comfortable, and extremely charming. And the views are breathtaking. I loved waking up in the morning, opening all the windows, having coffee on the patio and feeding the ducks. Our son spent hours on the dock fishing and watching the carp jump out of the water.
We rented a pontoon and went out fishing four out of the six days we were there and jet skied the other two. Spent time walking around the village and exploring all the wonderful restaurants Big Bear had to offer! It truly was the most relaxing and fun vacation we have ever had and can HARDLY wait to return.
I would not even think of looking for another place to stay on our next visit. This home felt like our own and we will be coming “home” again!!!
–California Family

*This cabin is about as perfect as can be. The view from the living & dining area was absolutely gorgeous. Each morning, we all grabbed our coffee and just sat outside looking at the pristine water. After our daytime activities, we headed back outside for the gorgeous sunsets. The cabin itself is incredibly clean and extremely comfortable. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else.
–Auntie Irish, Los Angeles

*The house is very charming, cozy, comfortable and clean. The kitchen is especially well stocked with many small appliances available. The rustic and country decor compliments the environment…My grandchildren loved the private dock and the ducks that visited. Sunrise and sunset on the lake is a big bonus…Big Bear Lake is absolutely beautiful!
–Pepper, Hawaii

*This cabin is perfect for a weekend getaway with a small group of friends…The view right outside the main living room is stunning! Since the cabin is located on a private cul-de-sac, it is very quiet and secluded…I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking to have a relaxing stay or an activity-packed adventure. Summer or winter, this is the place to be!
–Kent K.

*I stayed at Lagunita Lakefront this winter, and was totally blown away by Big Bear Lake. It’s like another world just hours from the big city…I had no idea how close to the water it is, you can almost fish right outside the living room windows. I’m definitely coming back this summer, and trading in my ski poles for my fishing pole! We will be back!
–Chase M.

It has been a little cooler in Big Bear Lake this week but warming for the weekend and beyond. Now is the time to take advantage of lower, off-season rates and enjoy the added benefit of no crowds. This weekend you can enjoy a variety of music and theatrical entertainment, take a stroll through The Village or enjoy one of dozens of activities. The Lake is now open for the season, so now is a great time to come up and do some boating or fishing.

      Welcome to the Big Bear Lake Half Marathon. This is road running at its finest. A scenic and challenging course full of steep up and downs, rolling hills and a two mile climb up to 7,300′ for a gorgeous run through Big Bear Lake’s most scenic neighborhoods.

      Race day also includes the Memorial 5k Fun Run, a scenic and challenging course along the border of the National Forest. Both events share the same Start and Finish in The Village of Big Bear Lake.

      This is an Open Air Big Bear event so you can expect a FUN start and finish in The Village of Big Bear Lake with Live Music and Local Vendors at the Lifestyle Expo.

      The Big Bear Lake Half Marathon and Memorial 5k Fun Run is an official proud supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project! A portion of each race entry fee will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. Last year we raised $1000 for the Wounded Warrior Project at the 1st Memorial 5k Fun Run. With the addition of the Half Marathon we hope to raise a lot more this year!
