Recent Inland Empire reviews

  • Family Trip

    "We spent 2 nights at this property. Very nice view, overlooking the beautiful lake. This house itself has nice rooms, very large space, and can accomodate more than enough people for a big party. It is clean. Only issue is few repairs may be needed, i.e. the shower handle in one of the bathrooms is a little loose. Otherwise the drive up is smooth, the owner is very responsive and great to work with. Will def stay again should we have another family trip."

  • Huge. Functional. Pretty solid.

    "I went here for a Big Bear getaway with a group of twelve friends. We liked how many bathrooms and bedrooms there were. The BBQ worked. The hot tub worked. Unlike other reviews there were no issues with neighbors... and we were pretty loud. There were a few little issues that we laughed about... and the lake view was only from a few of the rooms... not from the porch... but all-in-all we were happy. The place could use a handyman to fix the rubber on the freezer or mount a few toilet paper holders better... but those were small things. On the plus side there was a pool table, poker table, fussball table and the place was as big as a castle. We had no issues checking in or out. The late check out was sweet! Good property. (P.S. Bring your own BBQ tools, blender and knives. 30 knives in the place and none could cut a tri-tip.)"

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.

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.
