What area of Big Bear?

What are some of the best areas of Big Bear for renting a vacation home?

Close to things to do....yet a feeling of being in the woods?

I like the Lagunita Point area, close to town and the lake. What time of year are you planning for? The difference being, lake activities or snow activities?

There really isnt a bad place to rent around Big Bear Lake, I would Google Rentals and start looking at what tickles your fancy, Price, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, etc etc closer to lake more $$$, Most of the prices drop in the Summer and rentals are more readily available

here is just one link of many

Look at VRBO.com, Homeaway.com and FlipKey.com as well.

Discuss what you want first, i.e. walkable to village, shops, restaurants, lakeside vs woods, etc.

We love Lagunita Point too, but we also love the Moonridge area as well. I loved the Moonridge Zoo as a kid.

Yes...I agree with the above. I would check VRBO first. There's a lot to choose from, and all kinds of factors including how large your group is and what kind of amenities you like. During summer, I would stay as close to the water as you can, or at least have a lake view.
