  • Wonderful cozy cabin

    "My friend and I desperately needed a girls get away weekend. My friend has dogs that she wanted to bring along, and so I chose this lovely cabin. My friend and I loved every detail of this cabin from the original 40s stove and refrigerator, to all the lovely period decor on the walls. There were wonderful staple supplies in the kitchen and all types of bakeware and cookware available as well! It was definitely a home away from home and extremely comfortable. The large fenced yard was wonderful for my friends dogs and I have never seen them so ready for bed at the end of the day. The cabin was the perfect peaceful, quiet place for us to be able to refuel our spirits! We are already planning our next trip to Sweet Pine cabin and the following one after that! Thank you so much!!!! The bathroom is a bit narrow (fits perfectly with the 1940s style of the cabin) so I would not recommend this cabin to anyone who is on crutches or in a wheel chair as it would be difficult to navigate it. Shawn was very responsive and great about sending me all of the information that we needed! I also received an extremely quick refund for the damage deposit."

  • The seclusion and owner set this property apart from the rest, A+...

    "We stayed at Tony's cabin in March of 2013 with two small kids. If you are looking for a more resort like property, or a jacuzzi deck this is not the property for you, this is a property for people that want a CABIN. The wood burning stove does an excellent job of heating the cabin evenly and keeping it cozy even when the snow flies outside (we had one night with snow). A few things we learned that will come in handy to future visitors... Don't overpack, the cabin has plenty of utensils, pots, pans and so on and in the end we were glad we brought some paper plates and cups so we didn't have to wash dishes, but most everything you need as far as kitchenware is there. Firewood is everywhere (we brought some). The cabin is isolated and quiet and you will sleep great, town in close enough if you need something. Just understand this is a rustic property, there is hot water for quick showers, but this is a simple few frills property. When we drove up at first we were a little put off by some clutter around the cabin, but understand the owner is building an addition so that part is a work in progress and explains some of the tools about. Super nice owner, easy to deal with and very accommodating. We will definitely stay there again. Great scenery, two kids and we never turned the TV on once."

  • Close to Bear Mtn.

    "Great rental, close to the "side" of Bear Mountain Resort (where the bunny slopes/ski lessons are held). There's 2 king beds, 2 twins, and 2 queen/full sofa beds. It was a nice cabin, loved the wrap around deck (too bad no snow). A great, affordable stay for us, would love to do it again. Host was very quick to reply to emails and I was very happy with the transaction. The loft layout on 2nd floor is great, just watch out if you have toddlers or infants. It is walking distance but if you're walking back from the resort, keep in mind you will be walking uphill (not steep, but uphill nonetheless) so if you're not in the best shape it'll take the wind out of you. It is definitely ski in/ski out IF there's snow, which there wasn't when we were there in Feb. Towards the end of the day the resort wouldn't let people leave through the side of the mountain, we had to go around from the parking lot so "ski out" might not always work. Plus, there's a small ravine between the road and the resort so you can really only ski in/out if there's A LOT of snow. Not the fault of the cabin's host though."

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

There are several airports serving the Inland Empire region. The John Wayne Airport at Santa Ana is approximately 66 miles drive from the area. San Diego International Airport is 75 miles away and Los Angeles International Airport is 98 miles away.

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.

Weather and Climate at the Inland Empire

The Inland Empire area is generally hot and sunny during the summer with temperatures in the valleys reaching 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The mountains are cooler and more pleasant for recreational activities. Most rainfall is during the winter months when it falls as snow on the higher ground.
