Why Big Bear guests love staying with TurnKey...

"We loved this place. My husband and I and 2 daughters aged 8 & 6 found this to be the perfect rental for us. Had everything you need and was super fun for the kids. The upstairs movie room was so fun to watch a movie each night. The pool table is a bit wobbly but still super fun and we played games and loved the hot tub. Just a cool fun place for the kids to play and hang out and explore. Great being right across from the picnic area which has great hikes and lots of fun logs to climb and cross the stream and explore nature. Great stay for a great price!"..."

2BR Cabin w/ Hot Tub & Pool Table
"Our vacation rental experience was awesome! The cabin was clean and cozy and had everything we needed. The kids loved the loft upstairs and the beds were really comfortable. The cabin is in a great location right down the street from Big Bear Village and numerous places to eat and play. Right across from the cabin is a beautiful large hill where they was plenty of snow for the kids to play in too! The only small issue we had was with check-in. I had received an email a few days before our stay, saying I had to check in in-person at the Turnkey office between 12-8pm that day. When I arrived, the office was closed with a sign saying they would be back at 12, but it was already 1pm and the door was locked. I called Turnkey and was given my door code to get into the cabin which was great! The representative told me someone from Turnkey would be coming to the cabin to complete the check-in process, or I could go back to the office again to do so. I went back again a few hours later and it was still closed with the same "back at 12pm" sign on the window. I went back again a couple of days later and it was again closed. I never saw anyone and the in-person check-in was never completed. In the future, if in-person check-in isn't actually required or no one will be available to personally check us in, that would have been nice to know. The email made it seem like it was required, and it would have saved me time and annoyance of going back to the office a few times for nothing. But overall, we loved our stay and would totally stay at this cabin again!"..."

Lake House w/ Decks & Hot Tub
"We stayed here as a family to ski at Big Bear Mountain Resort. Snow Summit is just a short drive away and Bear Mountain is only a 10 minute drive away. We loved this place as it was clean, well laid out for a family, well decorated, reasonably priced and everything worked well. The property manager Turnkey was also excellent to deal with as they were proactive providing us all the information we needed for a smooth check in and check plus responsive when we had a minor request. We'd definitely stay here again."..."

How to pick the perfect vacation rental in Big Bear

Located in the San Bernardino Mountains along the south shore of its namesake, Big Bear Lake, California is a small, year-round resort city that sees hundreds of thousands of visitors every weekend. With it’s jaw-dropping lake views, it’s easy to see why the scenic city served as the backdrop to iconic films such as Gone With the Wind and Old Yeller. Folks flock to Big Bear Lake to fish, hike, bike, horseback ride, and ski during the winter.

Follow these tips to help you pick the perfect Big Bear, CA vacation rental for your travel plans.

  • Where to stay to go fishing.To fish for trout, bass, and catfish, visitors should obviously stay along the lake. But there are a few specific areas around Big Bear Lake that locals tout as the best fishing spots. Stay near the Big Bear Marina, Boulder Bay, the triangle from Big Bear Marina to the Solar Observatory to Grout Bay, and the Stanfield Cutoff from Big Bear Boulevard to North Shore Drive.
  • Where to stay to hike and bike in the San Bernardino National Forest.For easy accessibility to hike and bike trails in the San Bernardino National Forest, stay on the north side of the lake. Trails in the area range from easy half-mile loops, such as the Woodland Trail 1E23 in Minnelusa and Cougar Crest Trailhead in Fawnskin, to the expert-level, 15-mile John Bull Loop further north and deep inside the forest.
  • Where to stay to go skiing.Big Bear is home to two ski resorts, Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Bear Mountain—which draws a younger crowd, offers a large beginners area, and is home to the only half pipes in California—is located southeast of the lake. Snow Summit caters more to families and is located southwest of the lake. The ski resorts themselves aren’t actually ideal spots to look for lodging; instead look for nearby privately owned lodges, cabines, and bed and breakfasts.
  • Where to stay to for the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival.In the fall, the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival showcases over 100 films from around the world in different venues across the city. The heart of the festival, however, is located at the Big Bear Lake Performing Arts Center, located on the southwest side of the lake on Big Bear Boulevard, so plan to stay in a rental in that area.
  • How to choose your own Big Bear rental experience.Visitors have ample options for lodging during their trip to Big Bear, although unlike other resort towns, they won’t find much housing at ski resorts. While there are plenty of lodges, cabin rentals, and bed and breakfasts around town, five-star hotels are uncommon. Instead of looking for a hotel, check out one of the private rentals or resort-style lodges. Look to stay near Big Bear Boulevard if you want quick access to both the lake, restaurants, and shopping, or stay further south near the ski resorts if you only plan to hit the slopes while in town.
