  • Weekend Getaway

    "Some friends and I were in need of a weekend getaway, this turned out to be the perfect place, everyone loved it! It was cozy and welcoming! Very spacious for lounging and close to the lake. The beds were comfortable, everything was clean and in order, fully equipped kitchen for cooking and dinning, everything in the house worked, didn't have a problem with anything. Simply perfect!"

  • Fun time at the little red cabin

    "We very much enjoyed this cabin. Everything was well organized, and our experience super relaxing. Plus, the cabin was only 8 minutes around the bend from Lake Arrowhead. The only thing that spooked us was a large spider in the bedroom, which likely crawled in through the open window fan. Our daughter spotted it in the first 10 minutes. I killed it (sorry PETA), no issues thereafter. And besides, we were in the woods, right?! In summary, I would recommend this property to anyone. Jill (the owner) was awesome, and we will certainly consider staying there again in the future!"

  • Paradise at Paradise Pine Lodge

    "This 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home was great! The amenities were outstanding. My grand children and children loved every minute of our vacation! They complimented me on my choice. If you want to stay in Big Bear and have a large group, look no farther than Paradise Pine Lodge. No need to eat out, because kitchen is large and well stocked. Barbecue, hot tub and game area upstairs were all used and enjoyed. Pictures do not do it justice. Grandchildren loved seeing stuffed animals greeting them on the beds. Don't hesitate to book, Brad is great and even sent a welcoming e-mail before our arrival. Happy to have WIFI and a big screen TV for the World Cup. Come and have fun!"

  • Our time in the forest.

    "If you want to get away from the rat race and enjoy a little old fashioned stay in the forest, this place is for you. We brought our three small children (5 years, 3 years and 10 mos) and a great time was had by all. The owner is awesome. The place is clean and rustic. We couldn't have asked for more."

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.
