The Hearth and Home Tour is a great opportunity to appreciate unique Big Bear architecture as home hostesses guide you through a collection of amazing homes from historic log cabins to modern, rustic mansions.

“Fall is absolutely the most spectacular time of year in Big Bear,” said Dawn Marschinke, committee chair for the Hearth and Home Tour. “The fall colors that surround these homes provide a natural accent. Our guests will not only get to experience remarkable homes, but they will experience the ambiance of the fall season in Big Bear.

Big Bear Lake is recognized as one of the few places in Southern California where one can see such a spectacular display of fall foliage. Evening temperatures are cool, providing the perfect conditions for leaves to turn brilliant shades of gold, crimson and amber.

A $30 ticket includes a tour of each home. Tickets for the Wine and Cheese event are available for an additional charge of $15. Tickets for both activities can be purchased online now at

Beginning September 22, 2017, Home Tour tickets only will also be available at Interiors Home Furnishings, Big Bear Visitors Center, Haus & Home, The Village Sweet Shoppe and Fox Farm Antiques.
