We are Mark & Suzie and we would like to welcome you to Bear Haven Cabin. Mark has been coming here since he was a young child when his parents bought their first cabin in Big Bear City back in the early 1970s. Mark and Suzie met in High school and that is when he introduced her to the beautiful Big Bear Valley. We are fortunate to have our home not far from Bear Haven and spend most of our time there when we are not traveling for work. We have traveled all over North America and stayed in many cabins and always have used VRBO to book just like many of our guests have. We have had many wonderful stays along with a few clunkers. From these experiences we have learned what we like and what we think our guests would enjoy.
