Crestline vacation rentals

Hit the reset button with a Crestline vacation rental

Time to flush out those lungs with some fresh mountain air? Well there's nowhere better to do it than the cute mountain resort of Crestline. Leafy, with a small-town vibe, Crestline is set up in the mountains and forests high above San Bernardino. At the heart of town, in all sense of the phrase, is glorious Lake Gregory, and many Crestline vacation rentals will be clustered round its edges. Come the lazy days of summer, the whole town comes out to play, whether they're swimming and boating in the lake, or making for the hiking trails of the San Bernardino Mountains.

Make a splash at Lake Gregory

Your first priority when you arrive at your Crestline vacation rental will be to hit the waters of Lake Gregory, and you might as well do it at speed with one of the lake's 300-foot water slides. Brace yourself for water activities galore, including including fishing, boating, and swimming from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Once you've dried off, you can get stuck into picnicking facilities, BBQ grills, a snack bar, and a fitness trail around the lake. Of course, Crestline's amazing location means that the mountains are right on your doorstep too, with hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails.

Though she be but little, she is fierce

For such a pocket-sized place, Crestline itself always seems to have something going on. Events include a big July 4 parade, car shows, and fishing derbies. And if you find yourself craving the attractions of a big city, then despite that small-town, outdoorsy feel, a Crestline vacation rental is actually only a half-hour drive from the seemingly endless urban attractions of San Bernardino. With museums covering everything from Ancient Egyptian antiquities and American Civil War history, to railroads and boxing, plus theaters, sports venues, and casinos, it's got you covered.

A Crestline vacation will leave you high and dry

If you're going to sun yourself by the lake, then some sun would be a good start. And a Crestline vacation will deliver on that score. Summers here are hot and dry, with barely a drop of rain in July and August. The best bit, though, is that Crestline's elevation means the heat never gets stifling the way it does lower down in the valleys. As for winter, the mountains mean it can get pretty cold up here. Temperatures frequently dive below zero from December to February, and you'll get plenty of fluffy white snow if that's what you're looking for.

Owner of a lonely heart

Vacation settings don't come a lot more idyllic than Crestline. Set in the San Bernardino mountains, Lake Gregory sits at 4,550 feet, and is particularly popular among birdwatchers for its herons and raptors. Crestline is also completely surrounded by the steep ridges of the San Bernardino National Forest, with masses of hiking and wildlife-watching opportunities. Among the area's more peculiar attractions is its famous 'Heart Rock trail'. Sculpted into its distinctive form by a waterfall, this heart-shaped pool is pretty much the perfect destination for a romantic hike a deux.
