Since I started writing this blog almost a year ago, I have covered many topics and highlighted several local activities that are available to take part in here in Big Bear. Although I have lived here for 36 years, many of them I have never tried. Over the last several weeks I have had the opportunity to take part in a couple of those fun activities with the hubby.

MM ConcertIf you read this post I wrote about music a few weeks back, you know that I love it in all its forms. Back in the end of July, the hubby and I had the opportunity to attend ‘Music in the Mountains’. This is an annual music series that consists of 3 different performances throughout the summer that raise money to heal and sustain our National Forest. It is put on by the Mountains Foundation and takes place at the Big Bear Discovery Center Amphitheater.

We had a blast! The venue is an outdoor amphitheater that boasts beautiful mountain views and good sound. It was great fun to sit out among the pines and listen to classic, live music. We were treated to 3 different bands that night – Tribute Bands to ‘America’, ‘Creedence Clearwater Revival’ and ‘The Eagles’. They all performed well and folks had fun dancing up front. We really enjoyed ourselves and I definitely recommend that you take the opportunity to see one of these shows. The last show of this season is August 31. Don’t miss it!! RS Vacations offers discounted tickets to those that book with us. Check out the specials page on our website for more info.

I have also written posts about kayaking – something I’ve wanted to try for years and finally did it! We launched onto the lake from a marina in Fawnskin and spent a couple of hours paddling around the lake. It was truly beautiful and so much fun! We got a little bit of a workout, a little bit of relaxing, and a whole lot of fun.

Because we don’t own a boat, we don’t get the opportunity to spend much time on this lake of ours. We have been out with friends on wave runners and in boats over the years, but this was a new and totally unique perspective. I didn’t get photos this time, but I will try to get some the next time we go out – there will absolutely be a next time. I ❤ kayaking!

RS Vacations also offers a discount kayaking package upon booking. Check out the activities page here on the blog for more info. You will have fun!!

I will keep trying out new things as often as I can so that I can give you a first hand account of all the fun stuff Big Bear Lake has to offer. Stay tuned!!

*I’ve stayed at a lot of cabins in Big Bear, lakefronts included, and I think this is my favorite one. I had no idea how much I would enjoy being able to walk to the hiking trails in the National Forest. It’s so nice if you love to get out. The cabin itself is fantastic. Well appointed, clean, and tastefully decorated. I should also add that the quality of the furniture is top notch. The log bed is amazing. And of course, to top it off, the hot tub makes this place is a 5 star for me. Can’t wait to stay here again..!
–Chase, Los Angeles

*Thank You! The Hot Tub was great!! Great location and place; will return!

*Great time – great place! Cute decor throughout. Comfy beds. Thank you!
–The L. Family, Temecula

*Thanks! Amazing Cabin/Time and Memories! 🙂
–Chris B.

*One big happy family. Your place is fabulous! It was awesome, loved it!

*We had so much fun!! Thank you for a fantastic house and great vacation!
–M & S, San Diego

*Needed some family time 🙂 Great cozy cabin!! Will be back!
–The Sabri Family

*From the moment we walked in, this cabin exceeded our expectations. It was immaculate, had everything we needed and was so whimsically, yet tastefully decorated, we enjoyed exploring every room. Although cozy, with two couples and five children, we never felt crowded.
The location is central to everything so it was quite convenient. There are many areas to sled around the cabin so those of us who don’t ski or snowboard had plenty to do. We would definitely recommend this cabin and are already planing to return next year!

Big Bear Lake is a unique Resort Destination in Southern California with year-round activities for the whole family. But what’s the weather like? Amazing! We enjoy all four seasons here – and each is truly beautiful. Let RS Vacations help you find a perfect Big Bear Cabin – any season of the year – to get away from it all and make some amazing memories!

Here are a few interesting stats on our fabulous climate:

According to the National Weather Service, the warmest month at Big Bear is July, with a daily average temperature of 64.7 °F (18.2 °C). The coolest month is January, with a daily average temperature of 34.1 °F (1.2 °C). There are an average of 1.7 days each year with highs of 90 °F (32 °C) or higher. Freezing temperatures have occurred in every month and occur on an average of 186 days each year, on average from September 24 thru June 4. With a period of record dating only back to 1960, the highest temperature recorded was 94 °F (34 °C), last recorded on July 15, 1998, while lowest was −25 °F (−32 °C) on January 29, 1979.

Due to the 6,790 to 7,200 ft (2,070 to 2,200 m) elevation of the weather station, precipitation is greater than in the lowlands of San Bernardino County, averaging 21.15 in (537 mm) a year. The maximum 24-hour precipitation was 9.43 in (240 mm) on December 6, 1966. Measurable precipitation normally occurs 44.9 days a year. Mountain thunderstorms occasionally produce heavy rainfall, even in midsummer (when most southern California lowland locations are quite dry). Big Bear Lake’s climate is Csb (Warm-summer Mediterranean) under the Köppen climate classification.

In contrast to most of southern California, the Big Bear Lake region normally receives significant winter snow because of its high elevation. Snowfall, as measured at lake level, averages 72 in (180 cm) per season; upwards of 100 in (250 cm) can accumulate on the forested ridges bordering the lake, at elevation above 8,000 ft (2,400 m). In February 1990, 59.5 in (151 cm) of snow were recorded. The most snow in 24 hours was 27.0 in (69 cm) on March 27, 1991. The greatest snow depth was 58 in (150 cm) on February 3, 1979. Snow has fallen in every month except July and August. There are normally 18 days each year with measurable snow of .1 in (0.25 cm) or more.

Hiking in Big Bear is a fantastic way to see the true beauty our mountains have to offer. We have many designated trails for beginners through expert hikers. You can start off from a trail head or ride the scenic sky chair at Snow Summit Resort and hike the back country.

At RS Vacations, many of our homes are adjacent to the National Forest. You can have your morning coffee, set out on a hike and be back in time for lunch. (Please be sure you have the proper equipment and a GPS device if you are hiking on unmarked trails.) Book a Big Bear Cabin today and start planning your ‘escape’. You wont regret it!!

Here is a map, information on trails, and some hiking tips from BigBear.com:



Alpine Pedal Path Alpine Pedal Path 2.5 miles away, very easy


An asphalt path that wanders along the north shore of Big Bear Lake. Easily accessible for hikers, bikers, skaters, joggers, strollers and wheelchairs. It starts at Stanfield Cutoff and ends at the Solar Observatory.


Woodland TrailWoodland Trail 1.5 mile loop, easy


A unique nature trail with 20 posted stops. Pick up a pamphlet at the entrance and take the self-guided tour where you will learn about botany, geology and the wildlife of this woodland area. You can leave your car in the parking lot if you exhibit an Adventure Pass.


Champion Lodgepole Pine Trail Champion Lodgepole Pine Trail .6 mile round-trip, easy


The Lodgepole Pine Trail is on the south side of the lake and is a gentle walk down a path along a stream, ending up at the Champion Lodgepole Pine, one of the largest known lodgepoles in the world. Begin by driving up Mill Creek Road (Forest Road 2N10-dirt road) for 4.5 miles, turn right on 2N11 and continue 1 mile to the trailhead.


Castle Rock TrailCastle Rock Trail 2.4 miles round-trip, moderate


Castle Rock Trail is one of Big Bear’s most popular trails. The trail begins 1 mile east of Big Bear Dam on Hwy 18. On the south side of Hwy 18 is a small brown sign that marks the trailhead. Park at the turnout along Hwy 18. The elevation gain is 500′, making it a steep climb for the first .5 miles. The well-marked trail levels out for another .7 miles. At the top is an impressive granite rock outcropping providing 360° panoramic views.


Pine Knot TrailPine Knot Trail 6 miles round-trip, moderate


Hikers begin at the base of Aspen Glen Picnic Area, just south of Mill Creek Road. The trail meanders through stands of white fir and Jeffrey pine. The trail leads to Grand View Point, altitude 7,784′. Avid hikers make the round trip hike in three hours or less. Mountain bikers take the Scenic Sky Chair to 2N10 west to 1E01 for a thrilling single track experience.


Cougar Crest TrailCougar Crest Trail 4-5.5 miles, moderate to difficult


Starts .6 miles west of the Discovery Center on Hwy 38. You will need an Adventure Pass to park in the trailhead parking area.

Adventure Pass Info (Available at the Big Bear Visitor Center, 630 Bartlett Rd. or the Big Bear Discovery Center, 40971 North Shore Hwy 18)


 Hiking Tips:


• Before starting even on a casual hike, take an inventory of your equipment. Have the proper footwear. Blisters and sore legs will greatly distract from your adventure in the great outdoors.


• The Big Bear Valley is in many places high desert, so take plenty of fluids since there is very little access to drinking water on these trails. The only water that is safe to drink at recreation sites is from developed systems. Open water is too easily contaminated to be considered potable. Water from springs, lakes, ponds and streams should be treated prior to drinking. Even clear water should be boiled at least 15 minutes before drinking.


• At this altitude the air has very little ozone to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun, therefore, a hat is imperative. Sun-block is also important.


• Many experienced trekkers carry a small survival kit with them. This often contains a windbreaker, a small first aid kit, a metal mirror, a police whistle, matches, a pocket flashlight, some high-energy snacks and a sheet of plastic or a thermal blanket in case the weather changes or they are forced to spend the night in the woods.


• Always let someone you trust know where you are going and when you expect to be back. Also, it is never wise to hike alone. Find out when the sun sets and allow yourself plenty of time to get back before dark.

Last weekend was my 23rd wedding anniversary. The hubs and I have both been working a lot (which is good!!) and it has been pretty busy up here in Big Bear, so a few days before the actual day, we were discussing what we wanted truckNtrailerto do to celebrate. We looked at each other and said “find some quiet”. It had to be something quick and cheap this year, so we decided on a quick camping trip in our little trailer. We found a babysitter for the kids…er…dogs :), loaded up the bikes and escaped for 2 days. It. Was. Wonderful.

path2The camping part is always a bit of work and we did have some ‘neighbors’ that really liked ‘speed metal’. (If you don’t know what that is, you’re lucky. 😉 This is coming from someone who likes all kinds of music – including metal.) They also really liked the F-word. A lot.  😦  The camp host had a chat with them the first night and it did get much better. There was also road noise and quite a few people in the campground. (I highly suggest you book a lovely, quiet, cabin from RS Vacations and avoid the above distractions.) “But I thought you said it was wonderful?” I did. And now I will tell you why.

We woke up early our first morning there and everyone else in the campground was still asleep (probably because they spent the night banging their heads and yelling the F-word….). It was beautiful and peaceful. We then got ourselves ready and took an absolutely fabulous mountain bike ride. We found a little trail that ended up at an overlook to a lovely valley. We had a snack, took some photos and just sat. With the exception of the birds, it was silent. Sitting in beauty and silence is so therapeutic to me. It calms my soul. After a little while, we rode back down (the fun part!) and grabbed a shower at the campground facilities. (Yet another reason that I highly recommend an RS Vacations cabin!!)IMG_1817

We spent the afternoon playing games, had a nice dinner (bugs do NOT bring me peace. And I give you another reason… 🙂 ), and roasted marshmallows over the campfire. We left the next morning and headed home. The dogs were glad to see us, and we were glad to see our shower.

The part that I will remember is not the bugs, the noisy ‘neighbors’ or the um, questionable showers. It is the peace and joy of being in the quiet of the forest with the man that I love. It is sitting and admiring beauty in a world that is not always so beautiful. Big Bear is a gorgeous place, especially if you go off the beaten path. That is where the true beauty lies and where you can get a true escape from everyday stress. Many of our cabins here at RS Vacations (including Lassen Bear Lodge) are right next to the National Forest – so you can easily have your own nature retreat. Enjoy!

*We LOVED our stay here. You decorated everything SO great…a real combination of rustic lodge + new Pottery Barn + comforts of home! And it is SO big and spacious with the mini-suites and even a family bunkroom! Add to that the great location by the ski slope, the zoo and lake, right above town with the restaurants & fun things to do there, all the birds and trees, spa, swing, horseshoes etc….We obviously are coming back when we can and again thank you for having such a terrific place for us to vacation!
—Respectfully, The J. Family

*We stayed at the Lassen Bear Lodge recently and had an amazing time in Big Bear! I’m compelled to write because this cabin really made the experience perfect. The cabin was large and spacious. It had enough rooms for two families…kids and adults! The large spacious kitchen flowed amazingly into the living space making it the perfect place for everyone to gather and enjoy each other’s company. The cabin was amazingly clean. Everything seemed fresh and new from the linens to the furniture. We felt like we were staying in a resort style cabin with all the thoughtful amenities. The large deck just outside the living and kitchen area were the perfect setting for us to wake up to hot coffee. The kids loved the swinging tire! It gave the adults time to have adult time, but it was hard to tear the kids away from the large kid friendly back yard when we wanted to leave. Also, notable was the hot tub on the deck…nothing better than drinks in the hot tub under the stars in Big Bear! And it’s location!! It couldn’t be in a better spot…it’s right at the base of Bear Mountain’s ski slopes and close to everything else in town. I give this place my highest recommendation. Although I’d like to keep it as my families little secret, I think many will enjoy this very cool cabin!—–Ryan G.
