  • Great Family Fun Weekend

    "Our weekend vacation began with being greeted by Diane, the owner upon our arrival. Diane made us feel like part of her family. Diane was thorough as she took us on a tour of her home, explaining how things worked and where to find extra towels, linens, keys, etc. The place was very clean and cozy. Plenty of room for everyone. Everything we would need was already there. The view from the deck was spectacular. We enjoyed the pool table and had a lot of fun putting some of the puzzles together. The grandkids had fun exploring the grounds. Using the jacuzzi while it was snowing was a great experience for all who were brave enough to get in. The piano was an added bonus and I really enjoyed listening to my children as they randomly played a few tunes. We would like to come back again, maybe during the summer next time. Thanks Diane for making our weekend a great experience."

  • Fantastic!

    "Everything about this experience met or exceeded our expectations. This is a palatial, classy, warm, lovely home with room to comfortably entertain four families as we did (nine adults and seven children). The host was incredibly helpful and gracious including sending back overnight, computer power cord one of our party had left behind at no charge. The location is excellent as it's practically walking distance from the main grocery store and other conveniences which his great if you don't want to drive or deal with the traffic, yet remote enough to feel very private. Totally agree with other reviewers regarding the space, cleanliness, comforts, features, etc. We cooked every evening and the kitchen is spacious and well stocked with excellent cook and bake ware, spices, etc. We've rented more then ten different cabins over the years at Big Bear and this is the only one we'll be returning to. The owner accepted our dogs, helped out with some supplies that were low, was quick to respond to any questions and overall was just incredibly classy and pleasant. We're already set to return next winter. Thank you Mailia!"

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

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.
