Things to Do

There are plenty of things to do in Big Bear. Here are a few of our favorites:

(1) Rent a pontoon boat and go fishing on Big Bear Lake.

(2) Between May and November, find the hidden gem “Bluff Lake,” which is not very far from the Castle Rock Trail. Here are photos that my wife took of this area, and we only discovered it two years after we bought the Lovenest. As great as these photos are, the pictures don’t do the place justice!





This is the entry from the back way…. easy to miss.

Welcome to The Lovenest!

lovenest5Nestled in a very quiet and peaceful area of Big Bear City – and only five miles east of Snow Summit – the 1BR, 1BA “Lovenest” boasts a beautiful fireplace, upgraded kitchen, Wifi, Roku, and a view of Gold Mountain.

One of the best vacation bargains in the entire valley, keep that lovelight on fire with quiet strolls along the adjoining meadow where you can hold hands, breathe in the fresh air, and watch the horses play.

The “Lovenest” can comfortably accommodate four people.  There is one queen bed in the bedroom, a futon sofa and sofabed couch in the living room, and a spacious backyard (and room for an RV).

Big-Bear-Love-NestIn October, 2014, we upgraded our fireplace for heat efficiency (and the firebox was too big, which sometimes caused smoke to come into the cabin).

In November, 2014, we added a cozy bench for hot cocoa on the porch!

In April, 2015, we added a Playstation 3 (which has a Blueray DVD player)…
