Mountain Escape in Comfy Cabins

Big Bear Lake glistens 6,750 feet above sea level, and the surrounding San Bernardino Mountains boast 8,000-foot peaks that are lined with dozens of trails. Big Bear Vacations' collection of more than 300 cabins takes advantage of the area’s natural beauty.

This Groupon is valid for a minimum two-night stay at one of the property's cabins, private homes, or condos.

Many of the property's cabins have rustic, countrified furnishings, easy access to area activities, and views of Big Bear Lake. Additional features may include stone fireplaces, jetted tubs, and kitchens. Their 5-star private homes offer a luxurious retreat often poised high above the lake.

This Groupon also includes two free entry tickets to Oktoberfest during any stay during the event in September. Oktoberfest is celebrating its 43rd year of honoring German entertainment, food, and beer with live events, music, and authentic libations to enjoy. Alternatively, instead of Oktoberfest tickets, Groupon customers may opt for two sky chair tickets.

Big Bear Lake, California: Outdoorsy Resort Community Surrounded by San Bernardino National Forest

Big Bear Lake is situated nearly 7,000 feet above sea level and surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest and the peaks of the San Bernardino Mountains. Los Angeles is less than 100 miles to the west, which is probably why Big Bear Valley has served as a backdrop for so many films and TV shows, including The Parent Trap, Doctor Dolittle, and Bonanza.

The lake is a popular destination for boating, fishing, and swimming during the warm months. You’ll find miles of hiking and mountain-biking trails in the surrounding forest. The 2-mile Castle Rock Trail weaves through groves of pine and cedar trees and past a waterfall before rewarding trekkers with a panoramic view of the water. But Big Bear isn’t entirely rustic—head to the village, located on the south shore, for restaurants, shopping, an arcade, a bowling alley, and a visitors' center.

True to its name, the area once supported a thriving grizzly bear population. Though that’s no longer the case, you still might see bald eagles, mule deer, coyotes, gray foxes, and even the occasional bobcat or black bear. For a guaranteed glimpse of wildlife, visit the Big Bear Alpine Zoo at Moonridge, a rehabilitation facility for injured and orphaned mountain lions, grizzly bears, wolves, and other animals.

People were nice and friendly. Easy check-in and check-out. Didn't have any problems with property. Location near village and lake. Had a lot of fun. Week-end get-a-way with young adult children. Will do this again.
