 Come Saturday October 7th beginning at 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. and  

revel in Big Bear Valley’s Fall foliage and delight in remarkable

homes while magic seems to fill the air as Autumn in the mountains settles. The mountain-top community shows off its charm and architecture during the 38th Annual Hearth and Home Tour, sponsored by Soroptimist International of Big Bear Valley. This year, in addition to the Traditional Home Tour, guests are offered the option to experience a Wine and Cheese Tasting event held from 12:00 Noon until 3:00 P.M. in Big Bear Valley’s beautiful mountain setting.


The Hearth and Home Tour is a great opportunity to appreciate the unique architecture, as home hostesses guide you through a collection of amazing homes, from historic log cabins to modern, rustic McMansions, found in the Valley.

Experience the colors and aromas of autumn as residents welcome us to their homes. “Fall is absolutely the most spectacular time of year in Big Bear Valley,” comments Dawn Marschinke, Committee Chair for the Hearth and Home Tour. “Fall’s colors that surround these homes provide a natural accent. Our guests will not only get to experience remarkable homes, but experience the ambiance of the season. The Wine and Cheese Tasting event will give our guests the opportunity to taste a unique selection five wines while enjoying the beautiful forest at the exceptional Alpenhorn Bed & Breakfast Inn.”  

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.
