  • Great place for a family get-a-way

    "Large one story cabin with beautiful stained glass windows throughout! Cooked all our meals in the large kitchen. Great dinning table inside and 2 patio tables outside. Wonderful huge deck overlooking large back yard with rope swing. We sat on the porch and watched our son play in the backyard and on the swing for hours. Lots of puzzles, toys, card decks, Legos and 3 TVs with dozens of Disney VHS tapes. Very comfortable for 5 of us! Walk-in closet in the master was large enough for the roll-away bed to fit and sleep one person, if needed. Portable crib was also available."

  • family annivesary celebration

    "We had the most wonderful time. The property was everything we had hoped for and more. We loved every moment and have the most wonderful memories/pictures. The children had so much fun they were crying when we left and did not want it to end. We would love to come back again."

  • Frequent Flyer Endorsement

    "We have enjoyed many vacation rentals thought VRBO, including numerous trips to Lake Arrowhead. This is the fifth property we have rented on Palisades Dr. Like the others, the view on to and across the Lake is fabulous. On this trip we had three couples+. The home is clean, spacious and completely comfortable. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped with dish, pots pans and utensils. (It seems rare that we didn't have to buy or improvise something for the kitchen.) We found everything to be perfectly comfortable for a long weekend retreat! The owner was accessible and attentive. The furnishings and décor are practical. The owner has avoided the appearance (frequent in second homes) of using cast off furniture from their primary home. They also have avoided the tacky mountain souvenir décor that many owners tend toward. On the other hand, the home does not appear to have been professionally decorated, which can be nice but tends to drive up the rental price. The stairs from the house up to the street level are daunting; but that is true of most all the properties we've rented on the lake side of Palisades Dr. and this property was not the worst in that regard....just something to be aware of for first timers to lakefront properties on Palisades and some other locations at Lake Arrowhead. We enjoyed using this home and endorse it with enthusiasm."

  • Our cousins reunion weekend

    "This was the 3rd year out of the past 4 that my cousins and I met in Big Bear, at the Boulder Bay Chalet, for a reunion weekend. It gets better each year. In 2014, 20 of us enjoyed a phenomenal time, much of it due to the friendly, cozy atmosphere of the Chalet. Ten of us stayed at the Chalet, and we all used it as our meeting home. Everything worked well, and the pontoon boat was utilized to it's fullest. We ate all our meals at the Chalet, enjoyed the room, the extensive group of recreational "toys", the views, the quiet, the ample parking, the 11 second walk to the lake, the BBQ, the big screen TV, and as so many of my cousins put it, "the feeling that we were home away from home again". Many thanks to Nancy, her fine housekeeping crew, and for being an integral part of so many memories. We plan to do it annually for many years!"

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.
