Rather Be Mountain Getaway








Big Bear, California

This mountain retreat is the ideal base for snow sport lovers looking to bring the whole family along. Just a 5-10 minutes drive to Bear Mountain Ski Resort, Snow Summit and Big Bear Village where the bars, restaurants and shops are in abundance. 

Inside we love the warming cabin decor and the large wooden kitchen. As you settle down on the plush sofa opposite the wood burning fireplace, you start to realize how this cosy space has everything you need to make yourself at home.

As for the exterior, we love the large deck area, the outdoor picnic table, BBQ, outdoor fire pit and children’s playground. During the winter months we provide a snow man making kit for every guest and sleds for making the powder that much more memorable.
