We spoke to experts, a company representative, and an Airbnb host to share everything you should know before booking someone’s homeAmong Airbnb’s recent top trending destinations is Big Bear, California. Within a couple hours’ drive of the Los Angeles metro area, the lake and mountain environment offers stunning natural beauty, ample opportunity for outdoor activities in all seasons, and a complete change in scenery from nearby urban environments.Popular homes for rent in this area tend to be rustic. Many are cabins, with Instagram-friendly design features like A-frame structures, lofted bedrooms, midcentury details, wraparound decks, cozy fireplaces, or tree house vibes. It’s worth noting that compared with hotels, experts and the CDC agree private vacation rentals pose a lower risk for virus transmission, given the limited number of face-to-face encounters with other travelers. Plus, Airbnb’s pandemic-era Enhanced Cleaning Initiative overhauled host cleaning protocols to boost both guest safety and the messaging around it. After a fall and winter spent almost entirely isolated as virus cases spiked in my hometown of Los Angeles, I felt confident enough in the private Airbnb experience to book a family getaway to an isolated Big Bear cabin and found it to be a rejuvenating, socially distanced getaway. Still, it’s important to note that the pandemic remains a threat amid an ongoing vaccine rollout, and the virus remains uncontrolled around the US. Therefore, there are risks associated with any travel, and no absolute guarantee of safety. We recommend following CDC, WHO, and other reputable organizations’ safety guidelines. Wear a mask, maintain social distancing, and practice good hand hygiene. We compiled a list of the best Big Bear Airbnbs, based on the following criteria: All listings are for private homes in keeping with current expert recommendations for social distancing. Every listing is highly rated, with a minimum rating of 4.89 out of a possible 5 or higher; all listings are by Superhosts and some are even included in Airbnb’s elevated Plus category.We looked for truly standout stays with exceptional design, such as cleverly curated home decor or standout architectural features like traditional A-frame styling.We included listings at a range of price points to suit different budgets, with choices ranging from starting price points of $101 to $375 per night.All listings display the badge for Airbnb’s Enhanced Cleaning standards.Here are the best Airbnbs in Big Bear, California, sorted by price from low to high.
