A Stay Dad Is Sure to Love
Our Father’s Day vacation rentals in Big Bear are the most comfortable way to book your Father’s Day trip. These vacation rentals in Big Bear Lake are full homes or condos. Rather than being confined to a small hotel or resort room, a vacation rental gives you the freedom of a whole home to yourself. Further, our places to stay in Big Bear for Father’s Day come with a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable rooms with fresh linens, and in many instances a lot of amenities that you will not get at one of the alternative options. This includes sleeping for large groups if you want to bring your whole family along or maybe a smaller luxury space for just your immediate group. And many of our Father’s Day vacation rentals are pet friendly too, so no one is left behind. No matter if you just bring your dad or choose to bring the whole family, a vacation rental is the way to go!
Cook Your Own Meals at Home
Generally speaking, the most expensive part of taking a vacation is the fact you are usually forced to eat out for every meal. Since you normally don’t have a way to prepare meals, if you are staying in a regular hotel, this can get very expensive, very quickly. Although Big Bear has many amazing restaurants that you will want to dine at, making just one or two meals a day will cut down on your vacation costs significantly. This is especially true with larger groups. Just replacing breakfast and snacks will free up a lot of money to do more fun things during your Big Bear trip. And you’ll want to pack your own picnic lunches to enjoy out on the trail, or down by the lake.
Plus, Father’s Day is just not complete without cooking up a few steaks on the grill! Luckily, most of our vacation rentals come with grills out on the deck or porch, ready for a few juicy steaks or burgers, or a few freshly caught fish. Why not let dad enjoy his cold adult beverages while lounging out on the deck as he enjoys the lake view and relaxes while one of the kids practices their grilling skills?
Things to Do with Dad
Get outside! If you’ve booked one of our vacation rentals with waterfront access, you can be out on the water kayaking, water skiing, fishing, swimming (if the water’s not too cold), and whatever else your dad likes to do. Book a charter and take dad on a fun day of fishing for trout, bass, catfish and more.
If your dad’s idea of fun is to spend hours hitting little white balls down wide-open fairways, head to The Bear Mountain Golf Course where the over-water features and other unique hazards will provide a challenge. This 9-hole/par 35 course offers amazing views of the surrounding forest and mountains along with great golf.
Take him on a hike around Big Bear Lake. The Alpine Pedal Path is an easy, popular, paved pathway with lake access and pretty picnic spots along the way. The Cougar Crest Trail and the Skyline Trail are both a little more strenuous, but both offer amazing views of the area. If your dad is a biker, Summit Bike Park at Big Bear Mountain Resort and Skyline Ridge are just two spots with mountain bike trails to explore. The San Bernardino National Forest also has biking trails, as well as hiking trails that wind around meadows filled with colorful wildflowers, beside trout-filled streams, over dusty desert plains and up alpine mountain peaks. Many of the park’s trails are ADA accessible and dog-friendly too. A couple of the area hikes to try are the Woodland Interpretive Trail and the Castle Rock Trail.
Take a tour! Take a helicopter tour for amazing aerial views of the lakes, Mojave Desert, and the San Bernardino National Forest. Stay close by your lakefront cabin and take a sightseeing paddleboat tour or take a trip on the pirate’s ship! Leave the crowds behind and take a private, guided kayak or boat tour around the lake.
