  • Great place to stay

    "I was in Big Bear with a large group for a two week project. The group was split up into 4 different cabins. This cabin was by far the best. I really enjoyed the comfortable bed and especially liked the kitchen. It had everything I could have needed for my extended stay Thanks so much to Angie, the owners were great!"

  • Can't wait to come back in the winter with the whole family!

    "This was our 1st experience with a mountain cabin rental. Although we were only there for 3 days, we loved it! My husband & I went for our 18 year wedding anniversary and it was a perfect getaway weekend. I am really surprised at the previous review, place was clean, bug traps! really? there were a few little ant traps, but that's to be expected, your in a cabin in the mountains. The trash dump off was literally right up the street, not far at all. We had a little issue trying to figure out the T.V. but that was only because there were 3 remote controls, but we got it up and running in no time. Wifi worked fine, Jacuzzi was wonderful, especially in the evening. Another added bonus was the sauna, very relaxing. Very satisfied with the property and owner. Wish we could of stayed a few more days, but definitely plan to come back in the winter with the whole family. Can't wait to see this place in the snow!"

  • Amazing Place! If you have a large group, stay here!

    "My family makes an annual winter visit to Big Bear Lake. We usually stay in a different place every year, however, after staying at the Royal Canadian Lodge with 3 other families over New Years, I'm not sure I want to stay anywhere else. It was absolutely beautiful, immaculately maintained and well-stocked. The managers were capable, friendly and helpful and I don't have a single complaint. And I usually can find something to complain about! While it is definitely pricey, it is absolutely worth every penny. I was initially concerned that is was northeast of the lake (we usually stay in moonridge near the slopes), but it proved to be convenient to everything (the town, the market, sledding spots, and Big Bear Mountain). We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to large groups, very large families, and anyone else seeking luxury in Big Bear!"

  • Best location in Big Bear!!

    "Had a wonderful time at this place! We were a group of friends going for some skiing and sightseeing and general fun. It was great to go into town which was so very close, come back, make a great dinner on the grill and jump in the hot tub. The owner was so helpful with any questions. Great place, great stay!"

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

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.
