Romantic Getaway for Parents & SCW Winter Getaway



Happy Holidays From Big Bear California!  10,000 ft above sea level, beautiful picturesque mountains as far as the eye can see.  Didn’t know California had snow?  California is great for its warm weather climate, but at higher elevations there is indeed cold and snow.  My husband and I love getting away from it all and coming here snuggling by a roaring fire.  It’s a couples winter getaway this year for my husband and I.  It felt great to wake up to the mountains this morning.  Spending Christmas here will be just perfect after all of our hard work this year.

Winter is great for cozy winter cabins, you can rent them.  There are several different types you can get depending on amenities, view, etc… priced to fit every budget.  But remember you can’t put a price on the memories you’ll acquire.
