Recent Inland Empire reviews

  • Quiet and Relaxing

    "We celebrated our 26th Anniversary at this beautiful home on the Lake. This is the perfect getaway filled with kayaking, paddle boarding and beautiful serene walks to town. Although, have to admit I went to town once and realized I wanted to get back to the peace of the Lake House. All of the amenities you'll need. We had a great stay!!"

  • What a great place!!

    "Where to start. Me and some friends rolled up to bear for a snowboard contest, and needed a place to stay. After searching all over VRBO- this place caught my eye. Not only was the place amazing - beautiful, great location and tons of fun games included - but Kim was an absolute pleasure to work with. I WILL ABSOLUTELY be staying here for many winters to come!!"

  • Under-promise and over-delivers

    "So many times I got lured by postings and descriptions over stating the quality of the cabin. Well, this is the other way around... the owner is actually quite 'humble' when describing his cabin. Beautiful, perfectly located, spacious, etc. Basically everything my family and I needed for an impromptu last minute trip to Big Bear. Will definitely come back. Also the owner is SUPER accommodating and easy to deal with. A big plus."

  • Loved our stay!

    "The cabin was just as described and as I read in the other reviews. It was perfect and just what we needed. You can tell the owners take pride in their place and I was very happy to find something so close to the mountain at such a reasonable rate! Dawn, the owner, is SUPER responsive and is great at answering any questions I had. I highly recommend this cabin. Remember, its Big Bear - not the Four Seasons - and for Big Bear, this cabin is terrific!!!! THANK YOU Dawn for sharing your home with us!"

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.
