Recent Inland Empire reviews

  • Excellent getaway!!

    "Once again Arlene delivers with a wonderful renovation of the Lodge. Suitable for families and groups of all sizes! Our family of six with children aged 12 to 3 had a last minute trip over Easter. The Lodge is truly a wonderful retreat and Arlene's attention to detail, including a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny, made our trip one to remember. Thanks!!"

  • Perfect place for families!

    "We had the opportunity to stay in the Smith Cabin over President's Day weekend. The house easily accommodated two families with the four kids between us happily taking over the bunk bed room. The house was clean, spacious, light and well stocked with basic amenities. The beds were comfortable and the Jacuzzi on the deck - under a blanket of stars - was the perfect remedy for tired skiing muscles! We would absolutely stay here again and enthusiastically recommend you do the same! The only thing I would caution is that there is a staircase down to the two secondary bedrooms so if you have very small children, I would recommend bringing a portable gate."

  • A lovely weekend in a quaint cabin

    "Quiet, adorably decorated, close to the town center. Just perfect for a mellow moms' weekend away. Stocked with pretty much anything you need and even a few things we forgot. Thank you, Sunshine!"

  • Annual Family Retreat

    "Our family has been going up to Big Bear for the past 10+ years. We have stayed in different cabins and homes, but by far your home has been one of the "BEST". It's clean, roomy, close to the village and across from the lake. You provide several activites for us to do if we choose to stay indoors. All the bedrooms are big and for us having the livingroom,dining room, & kitchen accessible for all of us to hang out together was a BIG PLUS. Thank you and we will hopefully will be making this our annual Big Bear Retreat home."

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

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.
