Recent Inland Empire property reviews

  • Perfect for our little family!

    "We (me, husband, baby, toddler, and dog) stayed in this cabin for 5 nights and really enjoyed it! The pictures and reviews were accurate. I always appreciate detailed reviews so I will try to do the same here ... Cons: - I don't think the cleaning company did a thorough job. Luckily I found the vacuum and was able to vacuum the entire downstairs. It looked as if they quickly swept the floors and that was all. Normally, I wouldn't be too bothered by this, but I have a crawler who puts everything in her mouth so clean floors are a must. - There were old used sponges in the kitchen sink. Personally I don't want to wash dishes with an old sponge that another stranger used on who knows what. PROS: - loved the bedrooms upstairs! Carpeted (these looked cleaned...I didn't see any dog hair from previous renters). - the master bed was very very comfortable!!!!!! It was so nice to have the door opened to the balcony in the mornings. - the 2nd bedroom worked perfectly for our toddler and had plenty of room for the baby's pack and play - being able to do a load of laundry while we were there was another huge plus - 5 minutes to town. 10-15 minutes to the Village - We had difficulty with the WiFi, but the problem was quickly fixed. Ryan, the owner, responded very quickly to my texts about this and did everything he could to help us. - quiet neighborhood All in all a great place to stay at a fabulous price. We would stay here again...maybe in the winter next time :)"

  • Amazing! Breathtaking!

    "Thank you so much Eden for sharing your special home with us. We were visiting from out of state so you have to take your chances with the owners being truthful with their internet listings. Eden your home is warm and inviting. When you arrive you realize that you are "home". Everything you need is there from the kitchen to the bed and bath rooms. Everything is first class. We enjoyed relaxing out on the deck and watching the beauty of nature around us. The fresh flowers all around the house and fruit basket we a nice added addition. Eden we could tell how much you love this beautiful home by the care you have taken in every room. We felt at home, and hope to return one day soon! Thank you for sharing your home so our family could make some beautiful memories."

  • Great location, wonderful property

    "We (2 adults and our 2 young kids) recently stayed at this cabin as a quick winter getaway to introduce my kids to skiing, and I must say it was a great experience. First, the owners are indeed wonderful to deal with as the other reviewer stated. Second, the location in Moonridge is super close to Bear Mountain, which has an excellent ski/snowboard school program for youngsters; even though I had not reserved lessons ahead of time (hint: do that in advance if you can), the close proximity of the cabin to Bear Mountain allowed us to easily beat the crush of others even during a busy holiday period (another hint: rent your gear the night before so you don't have to deal with renting gear at Bear). As for the cabin itself, it pretty much has everything you could possibly need: linens, towels, coffee maker (with filters!), hair dryer, washer and dryer, a king size bed in the master bedroom and a bunk bed and trundle bed in the second bedroom, a full bath with bathtub upstairs and a bathroom with shower downstairs, a fireplace, cable TV in both bedrooms and family room, full kitchen with fridge, dishwasher and stove, and a dining room with seating for four. The heater works really well and keeps the place nice and toasty so the skiiers and snowboarders in your group can come back after a long day to hot chocolate and a warm cabin. If you decide to eat in, everything you could possibly need is available to prepare home cooked meals; if you are decide to eat out, check out the Black Diamond Tavern just minutes away. Note: at the end of your stay, all trash must be taken to one of two public dumpsters which are not far away, this is typical for all the properties at Big Bear. Overall the property was clean and very well maintained and we would have no reservations returning here again."

  • Great Location, Great for Kids

    "We stayed in this home for an entire week with four families (14 people total) with no space problems. It is a very well maintained home and property with plenty of space for the kids to play. Gary was very easy to work with and always available by phone when needed. The path to the boat dock was very well done and made it easy for all in our party to access our boat for watersports or fishing. We spent most of our evening sitting out on the deck talking and playing cards while enjoying the Big Bear Lake atmosphere. Everyone in our group loved the place and would definitely rent it again on our next visit. Thanks to everyone involved for making our first stay in Big Bear a lasting memory for our entire family."

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.

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.
