Watch Scary Movies
Host your own scary movie night at your Big Bear Lake cabin rental! Gather the family and sit back with your bag of candy and popcorn and put in your favorite scary DVD or find a classic on cable TV. Did you know Big Bear Lake has been visited by Hollywood? Oliver Stone’s “The Hand” staring Michael Caine had several scenes filmed around Big Bear Lake. No matter what you choose to watch, it’s sure to be a great time with the whole group at your Big Bear cabin rental!
Tell Ghost Stories
Even if you can’t sit around a camp fire, you can still gather around the fireplace and tell ghost stories in the comfort of your Big Bear Lake cabin rental. Snuggle in and share tales of haunted forests, listen for voices in the howling wind or catch the ghost rocking in the chair. We promise our cabins aren’t haunted, but we can’t guarantee your imagination won’t get the best of you! Want to try to see a real ghost?
