Posted: 07/06/20 | By Cool Cabins

Are you planning an escape to Big Bear Lake in California? Look for these top amenities when finding the perfect cabin rental for your getaway.

Just a short drive from Los Angeles, Big Bear Lake offers endless outdoor recreation and a laid back mountain lifestyle. It’s the perfect escape to enjoy with family and friends. For the most authentic experience, many visitors choose to stay in a cabin or vacation home rental at Big Bear Lake.

When staying in a cabin or home, your group can enjoy more privacy and quality time together than in a traditional hotel or motel. Here are the top six cabin amenities to look for and consider when planning your stay:

1. Gorgeous Views

The natural beauty in Big Bear Lake is magical. When you choose a cabin for your vacation, check out the description or photos to see if there will be forest, mountain, or lake views. Imagine watching the sunset over the lake every evening during your trip from your private cabin retreat.

2. Dock & Water Access

Many lakefront rentals will offer direct dock access to Big Bear Lake. With a dock, you can hop in the lake for a dip to cool off anytime you’d like, or relax by the waterside. Serious anglers will love being able to boat and fish in the early morning right from their backyard!

3. Game Room or Movie Room

Look for cabins with a game room featuring billiards, foosball, darts, and even arcade games. Game rooms are a perfect amenity for families or even just the young-at-heart. Some properties even feature a home theater experience, including cozy seating and surround-sound. If you encounter a rainy day during your trip, these in-home experiences will keep you happy and entertained.

4. Gourmet Kitchen & Barbecue

One of the most memorable parts of vacationing with friends and family is sharing a meal together. Cabins with gourmet chef kitchens, top-of-the-line appliances, and barbecues will allow your group to gather around the table and enjoy. Look for cabins that have indoor and outdoor seating areas so you can dine al fresco too!

5. Walkable to Village or Trails

Ditch the car and walk from your cabin rental to nearby hiking trails, or The Village. The Village at Big Bear Lake is bustling with small locally-owned businesses and it’s the perfect place to go for an ice cream cone or a little retail therapy.

6. A Cozy Hot Tub & Fireplace

There's nothing more cozy and romantic than a cabin with your very own hot tub or fireplace. Look for a property with both! After a day spent outdoors, a hot tub is perfect for soaking and unwinding under starry skies on a cool crisp evening. Many cabin rentals will also feature fireplaces, where you can curl up with a good book, a glass of wine, and even make s'mores!
