Big Bear Cabins vs. Big Bear Hotels
Choosing where to stay is one of the most important parts of planning a vacation. This crucial decision can make all the difference in your vacation quality. Most people automatically start searching for hotel rooms but here in Big Bear there’s an even better way to stay. Cabins are the most popular way to spend the night in the San Bernardino National Forest since they offer a wide variety of amenities that a hotel can not. Here are a few reasons why you should stay in a cabin instead of a hotel the next time you visit.
Hotel rooms tend to be very close together. When you stay in a cabin, you eliminate the stress of sharing walls with another guest. If you’re traveling with a larger
party, a multi-room cabin is the way to go. With private bedrooms, kids can enjoy their own space and other adults can retire in personal bedrooms after a long day. Private bathrooms are also great when traveling with multiple people so no one feels rushed. Some cabins even come with private hot tubs for only you and your guests to enjoy during your stay. Having your own private parking space makes vacationing a lot easier as well. When you stay in a cabin you won’t have to worry about losing your parking space if you go out for the day. Most cabins can accommodate at least 2 cars but depending on the cabin you choose, some can fit up to 6! You’ll also feel relieved to know that your car is right outside the front door instead of down in a public parking lot. Pictured Big Bear Cabin Moose Mountain you will find a six-person hot tub.

Each has a main living room, a kitchen, bathrooms and some even have decks or backyards.You won’t feel crowded, even when traveling with a large party. Parking is also so much easier when you stay in a cabin. You won’t have to worry about losing your parking space when you go out for the day since the driveway is all for you. Most cabins can accommodate at least 2 cars but depending on the cabin you choose, some can fit up to 6! You’ll also feel relieved to know that your car is right outside the front door instead of down in a public parking lot.
Find a Cabin
Cabins are like a home away from home! Most hotel rooms only provide a mini-fridge and don’t have the option of cooking a home-cooked meal while on vacation. Cabins come with full kitchens that you and your guests can take advantage of whenever you don’t feel like eating out. Some even have barbecues outside so you can enjoy the weather while grilling up dinner for your family. At night, cozy up by the fireplace for a movie night or unwind on the deck while taking in the scenery! If your cabin is pet friendly you can bring your furry friend along to enjoy the vacation with you. Some homes also have a backyard which allows for plenty of play space for your dog. Cabin’s will make you feel less homesick by providing the comforts of home while you relax on your vacation. Pictured, Cozy Bear Retreat, located just west of the village and a short walk to dining.
