Area Information
The Big Bear valley boasts a beautiful alpine lake in the heart of a scenic mountain valley. Big Bear Lake is approximately 1 1/2 hours from Disneyland, The San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park. About 2 hours to the famous Southern California Beaches. A short, approximately 1 1/2 hour Trip to Joshua Tree National Monument.

Big Bear offers a variety of recreation activities including picnic areas, scenic viewpoints, water skiing, snow skiing/snowboarding, tobogganing and snow play, hiking, fishing, boating, bird watching (Bald Eagles can be spotted here every winter), dancing, car shows, shopping and the best 4th of July fireworks in Southern California (over the lake!).

Big Bear Lake is about 7 miles long and averages ½ mile wide. The lake itself sits at about 6700 feet and is surrounded by pine covered mountains, the tallest of which is Sugarloaf Mountain at a height of 9957 feet. There are over 500 miles of hiking trails in the San Bernardino Mountains some of the best of which are located right here in the Big Bear area, including portions of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail and there are trails to match anyone's ability. If mountain biking is your thing then Snow Summit is the place for you, with world-class mountain bike trails traversing the mountain. Or if riding down the mountain on a board or a pair of skis is your idea of fun, than wait for the snow to fly and head up to Snow Summit or Bear Mountain. There are a number of marinas in the valley where you can rent a boat for skiing, fishing or just cruising around the lake.

Thing to do while in Big Bear:

Moonridge Animal Park
Big Bear Discovery Center
Alpine Slide
Mountain Biking
Horseback Riding
Solar Observatory
Bird Watching

Great Family Cabins!

January 6, 2015

Family members, friends and 2 dogs for a total of 22 packed up and welcomed in 2015 at Bear Pad and Moose Pad. We had a fabulous time! These cabins were perfect for our large family and dogs. Rustic and homey. Plenty of sleeping areas between the 2 cabins,5 private bedrooms and a large loft area. 2 bathrooms in each cabin and fully equipped kitchens. Log burning fireplaces, a jacuzzi for each cabin and 2 bbq's. Everything a family needs to really enjoy some quality time. Close to everything in Big Bear, yet a very quiet area. Ask about the "secret forest" It was PERFECT for our young grandchildren. We were so happy we could bring the family dogs also. Tom and Jan the owners are wonderful, and go out of their way to make your experience a positive one. If you are looking for "fancy" this is not your place, however if you are looking for a relaxing, rustic, homey type of cabin you will not be disappointed. It is perfect for large family gatherings. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Very relaxing and fun vacation

August 18, 2014

We are a family of four (2 elementary school age kids) and a dog and all of us had a great time at Bearpad. The place was away from the chaos of a touristy area, yet close enough to drive to the places to hike, fishing, restaurants, water sports. So many things to do in summer here yet, it was so relaxing. The jacuzzi was definitely a +++! The owners (Jan and Thomas), care taker (Kurt), and a cleaning lady (Debbie) were super nice and attentive. Thanks a lot!!

Very cozy

January 28, 2014

Overall this place was great, our group of 6 was very comfortable here, it fit all of our needs. Just a few things that prevent the 5-star rating: the pressure in the shower was awful; there was no gas key for the fireplace, the mattresses were rather old (I daresay you'll have that problem at most cabins though), and the hot tub was way too hot with no temperature control. I don't want to be too negative though, we weren't expecting a 5-star hotel. This place is conveniently located (we walked to the circle K daily) and had enough room for 6 adults to hang out, watch TV, play games, and eat together. The decorations are cool and cabin-y (LOVE the coffee table, a bear on his back holding up glass with his feet), and the hot tub was nice for about 15 minutes at a time.

Owner's reply:

Thank you SaraBeth for the review, sorry about the hot tub, there is a control on the side under a panel, there is a number on the wall by the front door if you had questions or concerns. The city requires us to have water saving shower heads, thus the lower flow, for conservation. The fireplace is wood only, gas is not permitted for safety. Hope this answers your questions and concerns. Thank you again for your stay......hope you will stay with us again!

Best Kept Secret in Big Bear!!

March 14, 2013

This place is fantastic! It is close to everything yet far enough away to be quiet. I love the fact that we could park our car right in front of the cabin, it is level AND WE COULD KEEP IT THERE! We road the bus into the village, ski slopes-drop off right in front of the slopes, and where ever in and around town.. It only cost $1.00! Didnt have a hassel or expense of parking. We walked about 3 blocks away from the cabin and there is a wonderful forest with all the sledding you could ever want---WE HAD THE ENTIRE AREA TO OURSELVES! Our kids loved it. The decor of the cabin was great all in Bears! It was warm and comfortable and extremely clean. The owners have everything you need--this is not a paperplate and plastic utensils place, the dishes and pots and pans are better then I have at home. Their housekeeper and handy-man were great--they checked in on us just to make sure everything was OK! When do you get that! The sunken spa was great after a long day of skiing. We are planning to book for next year and this summer before they get all booked-up! Thank you Jan & Tom for a great weekend in the mountains!

Awesome & cozy cabin w/ very hospitable owners

January 23, 2013

Our group consisted of 9 college students, and everyone was very pleased with the cabin. The cabin was very cute and extremely cozy--very suitable for a retreat or gathering for about 10 people. We arrived at around 10pm, and it was very cold in Big Bear; but the owners already had the heater and lights on, which we were very grateful for. The jacuzzi was also already warmed up, and it felt wonderful, especially after skiing for a whole day! The late check-out was definitely a plus since we were all tired from the day before. Lastly, Jan and Tom are very nice people and were very hospitable owners; they made the reservation process and the stay very smooth and easy-going. Thanks a lot!

Cute Cabin!

January 1, 2013

This is a very clean, cute, comfortable and affordable cabin. Its small, but accomidated the 8 of us very well. The only issue we had was that there was only one shower, but we managed. Our stay here was wonderful. Debbie was very responsive to our needs, even when we got lost. She was just great!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can we park off street.?
A: No Problem, there is a 3 space level driveway right in front of Bear Pad. If you have more vehicles then that, no worries we own a private parking lot next door at Moose Pad which can hold a total of 5-6 vehicles. This also is a level lot.
Q: Where is the closest Store?
A: There is a Circle K Market and gas station to the left about 400 feet from the Bear Pad for all of your needs.
Q: What if something goes wrong in the house?
A: We have our own handyman that lives only a couple of blocks from Bear Pad. His number is posted by the telephone in Bear Pad. He is also a low cost source for fire wood at EXTREMELY low prices and HE DELIVERS!.
Q: How close are the ski slopes?
A: The ski slopes are about a mile from bear pad. Why go through the hassle of traffic and parking fees at the slopes which parking is expensive and blocks away! Take the bus which stops a block from Bear Pad at Big Tree and returns you to the Circle K! The cost is $1.00 each way. It takes you right in front of the slopes and drops you off right at the entrance!
Q: What if my kids just want to play in the snow?
A: There is an entire forest about 2-3 blocks to the right of the Bear Pad with plenty of room for sleds, building snowmen and climbing to the top of the ridge.
Q: How do I pay for my stay?
A: It is really easy, we use Paypal, we are a Verified Payee and this is a really safe and fast method to transfer money. This protects you as well as us. Of course, time permitting, we accept Checks and Money Orders as well.
