Romantic Big Bear Hot Spots

With the scenic San Bernardino Mountains along the horizon and Big Bear Lake setting the stage in front, it’s easy to get into a romantic mood while you’re vacationing in Big Bear. And when you book one of our lakefront cabins or vacation homes and the two of you can get some serious snuggling in out on the deck as you watch the stars’ twinkling reflection off the lake. Time for romance!

Enjoy the Sunset

Have a fun afternoon horseback riding or hiking in the mountains, then watch the sunset as you head back. As the world slowly turns from sunset orange to that dark velvety night, it will feel like it’s just the two of you here in paradise. Or take a helicopter ride over the valley as the sun sets, and get a new perspective on things, or a lazy paddleboat tour of the lake, learning about the area’s history while you enjoy the scenery.

Enjoy a Couples’ Massage

Try a couple’s massage once and you’ll want to make this an annual event. The Altitudes Massage & Spa in Big Bear Lake will have you rejuvenated in no time with their soothing head massage or relaxing foot massage. Or try their traditional hot stone massage. Champagne (or hot tea) along with yummy chocolates and chocolate-covered strawberries could make this the highlight of your trip.

Opt to stay at your vacation rental and have your own spa day. Book one of our vacation homes with a hot tub out on the back deck. Grab a bottle of your favorite wine (picked up earlier today at the Le Dolce Vita Wine Tasting Room, another fun activity for couples), and soak your troubles away under the stars, hand-in-hand.

Enjoy a Romantic Dinner for Two

Enjoy a romantic, candlelight dinner for two at one of Big Bear’s upscale restaurants. The Pines Lakefront and Peppercorn Grille both offer delicious candlelight dinners for two along with gorgeous scenery.

Or don’t leave your cabin. Pick up your favorite things to eat from one of the local restaurants, then dine in the quiet of your lakefront cabin, in front of the roaring fire. Arrange those pretty, scented candles you picked up earlier today in town along with those chocolates and champagne, and you’re set. Or take everything out to the deck, snuggle up and do some stargazing while you sip champagne.
