Experience The Best Big Bear Honeymoon | Big Bear Cabins

How may we help you?

A Big Bear Honeymoon

Romance is in the air for 365 days a year in Big Bear. With such a desirable climate and a beautiful natural landscape, there’s little wonder why everyone falls in love with the area. If you’ve already fallen for someone, Big Bear is the perfect location for a honeymoon vacation after the wedding of your dreams. Stay in one of our wonderful log cabins on Big Bear Lake, offering the best combination of natural views and amenities that you’ll find. Visit one of these restaurants – or all of them – during your Big Bear honeymoon.

La Vella Villa Grill

This family restaurant is a relatively new addition to the Big Bear dining scene. Their menu offerings range from seafood like coriander-crusted salmon to baby back ribs. There’s an eclectic mix of Italian, seafood and Greek food on the menu – all sure to satisfy. Many have raved about the seafood spaghetti, or the volcano chicken served with a hearty side of homemade mashed potatoes and veggies.

The Pines Lakefront

This is fine dining on Big Bear Lake. If it’s not the ONLY fine dining on the lake – like their website claims – then it’s certainly the best. The Pines offers a breathtaking view of Big Bear Lake from its new garden patio area and the exterior shaded gallery. You’ll be shielded from the summer sun, while being able to enjoy a delicious meal under the looming landscape of the San Bernardino Mountains.

This place has been around, in one way or another, since the 1920’s! Step inside, and it does have a slightly retro 1940s feel, with interiors offering exposed wood beams, a large stone fireplace, and tables out fitted with linen and sparkling glass. Plus, there are lovely lake views from almost any spot in the room. They also offer what is billed as the “smallest ballroom” on the mountain, which has been the location of many great celebrations over the years. It’s the perfect spot to keep the celebrations going! Ask about reserving their lakeside gazebo for a special luncheon or post-ceremony reception too.

The kitchen serves a varied menu, including Black Angus beef, Midwestern pork, poultry, fish, seafood, and more. Start your married life off by expanding your palate, and try something “mountainy” like their venison, wild boar, or elk menu items. Pair your meal with a glass of wine from The Pines wonderfully stocked cellar.


There’s an unmistakable French vibe at Madlon’s Restaurant. Chefs Robert and Chelsie Orr are professionally trained from French culinary schools. The décor and style of Madlon’s fits the French food that dominates the menu. Check out their brunch menu to start your honeymoon day off right. Enjoy the classic French breakfast, which includes a croissant with jam, boiled egg, cup of berries, and coffee. Feel free to bring your own bottle of champagne, and you’ll only have to pay for the cork fee. Madlon’s isn’t the pricy lunch affair that you may think it is after glancing at their menu; most meals fall around $10 and have very fair serving sizes.

Peppercorn Grille

Fine dining, elegant and romantic atmosphere? It’s the Peppercorn Grille! Choose to dine in their intimate dining room, out on the heated patio where you can do some serious people watching while enjoying your meal, or in the heated tent. The Grille is perfect for romantic dinners and special occasions. Give them a call at 909-866-5405 for reservations or order online and dine at your leisure back in your lake-view cabin.

Warm Artichoke Dip, Maui Crab Cake or Warm Bruschetta with Ciabatta Toast are just a few of the appetizers to get you started on your romantic night out. Cannelloni, Lasagnas, Lobster Ravioli, Beef Stroganoff, Surf n Turf, Filet Mignon, Rack of Lamb, Salmon, Lobster Tail, and many delicious menu items will follow. Enjoy!

Sweet Basil Bistro

Sweet Basil Bistro’s eclectic, country Italian menu includes Homemade Garlic Fritters, grilled or blackened salmon, Lobster Lasagna, Sautéed Sea Dabs, Surf & Turf, Short Rib Ravioli, and Italian Shrimp & Grits. Want more? Choose their Gorgonzola Stuffed Filet Mignon or Grilled Eggplant Parmesan. There’s certainly bound to be plenty of things you’ll both want to eat at Sweet Basil Bistro. Don’t forget to leave room for their customer favorite Housemade Mini Doughnuts, Tiramisu and more! The food presentation is lovely, and the taste is even better.

This intimate dining spot is open every day except Monday and Tuesday. Order online for delivery or pickup or call for reservations (909-866-9212).

Evergreen Restaurant

Another Big Bear Lake fine dining spot with a great view! And it’s another great spot for any post-ceremony receptions or gatherings that may be taking place. Imagine everyone gathered on the deck, overlooking lovely Big Bear Lake. Evergreen offers complete wedding services, so they’ll be able to cater to whatever sort of ceremony or gathering you have in mind. Give them a call at 909-878-5588 for more information.

Evergreen specializes in steaks and seafood. Start things off with bacon wrapped scallops or crab cakes, then go for the Roasted Rack of Lamb, Filet or Rib Eye, Roasted Half Duck, Lobster Pasta or Lobster Tail. Call for reservations, dress up a little and have a great night on the town at Evergreen.
