Flowers in Big Bear Lake in spring

Spring is a beautiful time of year, especially in Big Bear Lake.  The weather starts to warm up, the lake is open for boating, the fish begin to bite and hiking trails begin to clear from snow.  Even better, the crowds get thinner after the ski resorts close making the town easy to get around allowing visitors to enjoy the quieter, slower pace of life.  If you are in need of a getaway, there is no better place than the mountains.  Here are some of our favorite reasons why spring is the best time to visit Big Bear Lake.


The Weather

Relaxing at Big Bear Lake vacation rentalBig Bear Lake has beautiful weather almost all year long, but the spring is especially enjoyable when daytime temperatures average in the 60’s and low 70’s with nighttime temperatures dropping into the 40’s.  The mild, sunny days make it perfect for hiking, biking and strolling through The Village.  At night, retreat to the comfort of your Big Bear cabin rental and stay warm in front of the fireplace.  Take refuge in the mountains when it starts to heat up on the coast and the desert!



Live the Lake Life

Pet friendly beaches in Big Bear LakeThe lake is open for boating now that threats of ice are past.  The docks and marinas are opening their doors and the public launch sites will unlock their gates.  Enjoy calm, morning waters in a kayak or canoe.  Take your dog down to the beach and take a relaxing stroll along the water’s edge.  Cast your line into the water and catch dinner for the family to savor back at your Big Bear Lake vacation rental.  For more information about public launch sites visit rentals are available for discounted rates when renting a cabin with us through Captain John’s Marina and GetBoards.


Beat the Crowds

Biking the Alpine Pedal Path in Big Bear LakeSpring is a slower time of year for Big Bear Lake which makes it perfect for enjoying the slower pace of life.  Fewer visitors means more Big Bear Lake cabin rental options are available, the lines at the grocery store are shorter and the hiking and biking paths are less busy.  Whether you just need a weekend away or want to take advantage of great weekend rates on a vacation rental in Big Bear, spring is the ideal time to plan your getaway!
