Forest Shores Inn offers 'lake front'. privately owned, vacation condos for rent. We have vacationed at Forest Shores, with our grandchildren, over a 1/2 dozen times since 1997. All the comforts of a beautiful home, with lake front view, and housekeeping. The two-bedroom condos have fully equipped kitchens with range, oven, microwave, refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, cooking utensils, and other small appliances. There is a breakfast counter, dining table, livingroom with gas fireplace and an entertainment center. The sliding door off the livingroom opens to a lake front deck, with a gas barbecue and patio dining furniture; and there are stairs that take you from the deck to the shore. There is a bathroom with a large walk-in shower on this level, too. Upstairs is a guest bedroom with either twin beds or queen bed, a master bedroom with a sliding door leading to an upper deck, and a shared full bathroom with two vanities. The property also offers a swimming pool and spa.
Forest Shores is located within a comfortable walking distance to the Village, where there are restaurants, shops, movie theaters, etc. A bowling alley is directly accross the street from Forest Shores. Also, within walking distance, are two marinas: Big Bear Marina and Pine Knott Marina. You can rent pontoon boats, waverunners, and other watercraft from these marinas. There are two large grocery stores about 5 miles away: Stater Bros and Von's. Also, within a short drive is golf, a zoo, hiking, and a variety of family activities. The Big Bear Discovery Center is a short drive away, on the north shore. There is a 1 1/2 mile loop easy hiking trail near there.
Our grandchildren are now 20 and 15 and still ask us to take them on vacation to Forest Shores. It has become our very special home-away-from-home. We cherish so many wonderul memories made there.
