As the gentle tide laps against sand-tinted rocks, towering pine trees sway in the soft breeze, carrying their woodsy scent for miles. Château-style villas and rustic hotels in Big Bear Lake peek out from between the evergreens, and every few moments, the sounds of clinking wine glasses and laughter spill over the waters. This is the place to retreat from the hustle of daily life. Close your eyes, breathe in the fresh air, and let your soul rest. When you’re lakeside, you’re at peace.
You know why you came: Gazing across the waters inspires a sense of tranquility. Craggy outcroppings of rock intermittently break through the lake surface, slowly fading from taupe to ebony as dusk draws near. It’s easy to imagine early explorers believing they’d found utopia; what else could this magical place be? Here, snow-capped mountains and emerald hills mark the seasons as they pass, but one thing remains the same – that sensation that you belong here, and that your soul can rest easy. And it will do just that, when you lay your head down at one of our hotels near Big Bear Lake.
