Located in the Bear Mountain area in Big Bear Lake, Peaceful Pines is a two bedrooms, one bath cabin that sleeps four. I am a huge fan of hot springs.  Been to more than 100 hot springs, some that are easy to get to, some that are miles of hiking, but the best part is the view.  While hot tubs are not natural hot springs, they are the next best thing! Some of our cabins offer the best views while sitting on the deck immersed in a Jacuzzi!  For instance,

It is ok – because most of us were dreaming about

Comedy Comes To Big Bear

Share

This weekend Big Bear Lake is having its first ever comedy festival. It’s kind of a big deal. Two nights, lots of comedians at three different venues that are all within walking distance of each other. I’m not really a stand up comedy kind of girl. I have an odd sense of humor that doesn’t seem to align with what comedians think is funny. And I feel guilty if I don’t laugh. I mean this is how they make their living and I’m just sitting there like please don’t look

Around Town with Ali – Fall Is Here

FALL IS HERE!!!!!! Leaves are turning colors, nights are chilly but the days are sunny and warm. It is the perfect time to be in Big Bear Lake.
