Retreat to idyllic Baldwin Lake for a forest getaway steeped in adventure. This area is home to plenty of wildlife, mountain views, and gorgeous hikes. Secure a Baldwin Lake vacation rental as your home base, and the San Bernardino Mountains as your playground!
Just two and a half miles from Baldwin Lake sits the town of Big Bear, where you'll find everything from dining to entertainment to the local zoo. A few miles farther east, you can access stunning Big Bear Lake's marinas for aquatic fun. During the winter, rent a snowboard and shred the slopes at nearby Bear Mountain or Ski Summit.
Hikers of almost every skill level can make their way up to the remarkable Eye of God, a quartz mound right outside Baldwin Lake that was considered a holy site for the area's native people. The Baldwin Lake Ecological Reserve is another local hiking favorite; keep an eye out for the bald eagles that spend the winter there. Horse enthusiasts should visit the Baldwin Lake Stables for a fantastic trail riding experience.
The rocky outcrops and tranquil woods of Baldwin Lake are a lovely backdrop for a weekend away. Whether you're gathering with friends and family, hitting the ski slopes, or simply reconnecting with nature, a visit to a Baldwin Lake vacation rental may be just the ticket.
