  • Home away from home

    "We rented the property this past winter. Very comfortable with extremely well equipped kitchen. Home is full of interesting knick knacks. Situated on the golf course was wonderful. We joined in some of the village activities and were made most welcome. Owners were very helpful and attended to any problems promptly. Would recommend this as a great place to stay."

  • Couldn't have been more perfect!

    "Our family of 10 stayed here for 5 days and had an absolute blast! The rustic interior look us just as beautiful as the outside. Was very comfortable for everyone. One family stayed in the downstairs room that had 2 bedrooms and a play are for the kids! Plenty of space in the house to enjoy with everyone and even able to sneak away downstairs to have some privacy. Almost feels like you are in a different house. Simply amazing! The house is steps away from the lifts and all the kids had a great time playing with the snow on the driveway. Our opinion was that the best time to go into the jacuzzi was early in the morning - if you don't hit the slopes. Thanks for the fun experience!"

  • Wonderful spacious cabin

    "We spent the weekend here, total of 8 people incl young children. It was a perfect cabin for us. The kids loved the lower level room. Great location next to Bear Mountain and amazing areas surrounding house for snow play (even though there wasn't snow during our stay) but lots of great nature walks! The house felt very clean which was of utmost importance to us. We would no doubt stay here again. The only negative to consider is that we had issues with the hot water both days with everyone taking showers and kids taking baths so we learned to space out the showers and then it was fine."

  • Excellent getaway!!

    "Once again Arlene delivers with a wonderful renovation of the Lodge. Suitable for families and groups of all sizes! Our family of six with children aged 12 to 3 had a last minute trip over Easter. The Lodge is truly a wonderful retreat and Arlene's attention to detail, including a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny, made our trip one to remember. Thanks!!"

Inland Empire Travel Tips

Inland Empire Vacation Rentals for a Great Trip

Inland Empire in California is a beautiful area located to the north of San Diego County and just west of Palm Springs. Surrounded by hills and mountain ranges with a few natural passes, the area measures around 60 miles from north to south and 50 miles from east to west. It is one of the few places where you are less than an hour’s drive from both the beach and the ski resorts. The impressive peaks around the Inland Empire area reach over 10,000 feet, making it a great area for outdoor activities throughout the year. Keep an eye open for the wild donkeys too!

The Major Advantages of Inland Empire Vacation Rentals

Choosing a vacation rental home that is right for you and your family is one of the most important parts of your vacation. Look for a rental vacation home that is in the right location to cut down on unnecessary driving and close to all the amenities that your family may be looking for. If you plan on dining out, local towns nearby with a choice of restaurants are important. For those planning to cook their own meals, a supermarket may be more essential. Choose a rental home which has sufficient bedrooms and bathrooms to give everyone their own space, preferably without using the pull-out sofa in the living area. Finally, look for an Inland Empire vacation home that has the amenities you require. A hot tub, game room, children’s play area or even kayaks and bicycles may all provided with some vacation homes, making them excellent values.

Things to do From Your Inland Empire Lodging

The area around Inland Empire offers a wide range of outdoor activities for visitors. Hiking in the hills is a popular pastime along with horseback riding and mountain biking. The area also lends itself to motorcycling and ATV riding. During the winter months, there is plenty of snow at the higher elevations so visitors can go skiing, snow tubing and snowboarding. For a day of leisure and pampering, choose a day at a local spa.

Getting to the Inland Empire Region

Neighborhoods to Visit Around Inland Empire Vacation Homes

Some delightful neighborhoods to visit in the Inland Empire area include Lake Arrowhead vaction rentals, a pristine lakeside village with boating and fishing, a water park and a children’s museum.

Idyllwild lives up to its charming name as it is nestled in the pine forests of the San Jacinto mountains. The town is quiet and peaceful with specialty shops and locally owned restaurants. It is a great place for taking some hikes into the mountains too. Close to the town, the Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks attract both amateur and professional rock climbers.

One final popular recommendation is a trip to Big Bear Lake rentals where boating, sailing, kayaking and other watersports can be enjoyed in this beautiful unspoiled area. Close by is Big Bear Park which is home to a number of rescued animals.
