Holy Cow another year under our belts and we are so excited to start up this season. The Meier's have now been hosting guests for over 43 years at Big Bear Resort! To be graced with the ability to bring families together, to share in their reunions, to meet new people and welcome repeat guests...WOW what a life we have!
We hope you can take some time out of your busy schedules to come visit. One thing that we learn as we age is that time stops for no one and before you know it you have a list of "I wish I had taken time to stop and smell the roses".
