Meet The Host

We are Mark and Suzie and we met many years ago in high school. Suzie is a busy healthcare professional and Mark is a medic for the film studios in Hollywood. We have been going to Big Bear since we were young adults and absolutely love it there. Our children grew up going to the mountains and now our grand daughter is experiencing the joy of being in the mountains. We love the peacefulness and the wildlife that surrounds our mountain home. There is nothing like the family gathered for a summer's barbecue or being together by the fireplace, playing board games on a winter's night. Big Bear is all about making family memories.
