  • Beary Cozy Christmas Escape!

    "Bear's Den treated us with a very cozy Idyllwild winter escape. We stayed at Bear's Den through the Christmas Holiday with our two dogs and enjoyed every minute relaxing, and making tasty meals in it's fully equipped kitchen. The cabin is a small two bedroom with cozy brand new king sized memory foam beds, and boy did we sleep well! The living room is so warm and cozy with a fireplace to keep you warm during those cold winter nights. There are several space heaters as well in case you get cold in the bedrooms. The only thing that needed an upgrade was the bathroom curtain, and maybe a new TV, other than that everything is perfect. The beds were cozy with clean linens and towels are provided also for your use. Make sure to bring your own toiletries as there is nothing in the cabin in case you forget. Also, bring all your cooking spices to season meals everything else like pots, pans, bake wear and cooking utensils are provided. The backyard was very big and perfect for a pet friendly stay. Our dogs enjoyed every minute playing in the yard and going for walks around the neighborhood. We would definitley recommend this place for it's coziness and pet friendly surroundings. Patrick with Quiet Creek Vacations was extremley prompt, friendly, and took great care of us with our check-in. Overall we had a great stay and will be back soon!"

  • Sept. 2014 Big Bear

    "My stay at BBear lakefront was comfortable and relaxing. The condo was clean and well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the deck had a great view. I enjoyed watching the troupe of raccoons raid the docks and duck nests each night. Their eyes are a bit alien-like in the light of a good flashlight. My only minor complaint is the the couch seemed awfully hard. I guess it's personal preference as none of the twenty plus cabins we have rented over the years seem to have a very comfortable couch.....I think it's a Big Bear thing. The proximity of this cabin to Big Bear Marina and town made things very handy. I liked the closeness of the marina and watching the boats go in and out. The four units on the property make me think this would be a perfect place for a small four family reunion because of the ability to get away from your family when necessary. All in all a great experience. The owner was helpful and easy to contact."

  • lots of room and great yard

    "The cabin was very big and spacious but the furniture needs to be updated. The pullout sofas have terrible mattress and could not be used which we had counted on them. The furniture on the back deck had broken chairs and also gave splinters from the rotting wood. The sinks in some bathrooms had no water pressure and when I opened the sliding glass shower door it shaddered to pieces, thank goodness I only got small cuts on my arm. The office was very nice and sent the maintanence guy over 1st thing in the morning. This could be a 5 star cabin with alittle TLC. We had a good time with family and friends. Loved the big kitchen and the jacuzzi was great!"

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 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.

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.
