The Coziest Winter Getaways Within 5 Hours of Los Angeles
You don’t have to ski, just après
Whether you’re a black-diamond skier or just snowman-curious, there is a snow-driven weekend getaway a few hours outside Los Angeles for you. From cozy cabins to resort rooms, you have your choice of snuggly interiors and fireplaces galore. Because let’s face it: Woman cannot live by beach selfie alone.
Luxury Home Altis at Mammoth Mountain (5 hours)
You’re staying in one of the most stylish homes on the mountain, waking up to gaze at the ski-in, ski-out slopes from your floor-to-ceiling windows. Remind us again why we have to get out of bed?
Edelweiss Log Cabin in Idyllwild-Palm Cove (2 hours, 10 minutes)
Exposed beams and a romantic fire to stretch out in front of on the Oriental carpet. You can play Daniel Boone in this log cabin, except, you know, luxe.
Snowflower Cabin in Village Bay, Lake Arrowhead (2 hours, 25 minutes)
A two-story wall of glass greets you when you come downstairs to make coffee in the granite-and-stainless kitchen. Like home, but with room to sleep eight. Oh, and also there’s snow.
Multilevel Retreat in Lake Arrowhead (2 hours, 16 minutes)
Knotty pine and a pro decorating job means you can completely cozy up after exploring the snowy forest vistas outside. Lots of room for up to 12 people to snuggle.
The Club at Big Bear Village, Big Bear Lake (1 hour, 45 minutes)
You want hotel-type amenities (concierge, fitness center, Wi-Fi) but with that homey Big Bear feel. Done and done.
A-Frame Cabin, Idyllwild-Pine Cove (2 hours)
You can bring your dog and six pals to this tidy little spot on one acre. Front deck snuggling during the spring thaw wrapped in blankets is a lock.
