Recent Inland Empire reviews

  • 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."

  • Great family cabin

    "The cabin was perfect for our group - separate beds for four teenagers was a must. Very spacious master bedroom. We cooked most of our meals - kitchen had everything we needed. Location is great - nice quiet area. Owner was very helpful. Internet access came right up. Jacuzzi was enjoyable. Used DVD player to watch some movies. Loved zip lining, horseback riding, alpine slide, waterside, hiking, antique car show, kayaking. Highly recommend this cabin."

  • Excellent, Great for multiple families,

    "This home was great. The pictures dont do it justice. Each bedroom is a good size and have there own bathrooms. Plenty of space for a large group. Best of all you have the forest as your backdoor. Endless snow play and hills for sledding. Our kids from age 2 to 17 loved it."

  • Awesome stay!

    "My husband, two daughters (1 and 3) and small dog had such a wonderful stay (3 nights) at this cabin. First of all, it is huge and stocked with everything you need. Our kids loved exploring inside and out - the inside is beautifully decorated and the yard is spacious. Second, it is within walking distance to the store, restaurants, lake and park. We had a great time at the lake but there was so much to do at the cabin itself as well! We loved the hot tub and the board games. It was so nice to have an actual crib and a high chair for our little one. Rochelle was great to work with and coordinated everything seamlessly. Thanks again!"

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.

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.
