      Historical Traveler Reviews Pine Knot Guest Ranch Big Bear Lake

      Wonderful! It Was our 3rd Stay and We'll Be Back!

      from

      We've stayed here 3 times in the last year and won't stay anywhere else. The cabins are really comfortable and inviting - the skylights and vaulted ceilings give a light/airy feel. We spent a lot of time sitting in the rocking chairs or on the porch and reading/relaxing. There are plenty of trees and shade and comfortable places to sit outside. Very close to the village yet very quiet and peaceful. Plus the lamas and bunnies! Owner/manager are very friendly and eager to make all stays as enjoyable as possible. Truly a great place to stay!

      Do not stay in Tree House Suite

      from

      When I made my reservation I was never told that the "Tree House Suite" was attached to the owners home. It is literally a unit attached to the owners house.

      Very upset that this was not disclosed to me in advance. Owner would not refund me and was not easy to work with. Guess she doesn't understand a customers point-of-view.

      All the comforts of Home

      My husband and I wanted to take our 4-1/2 year old daughter up to Big Bear to play in the snow. After some research I came across Pine Knot Guest Ranch so I booked us for one night. We arrived 1/31/05 and had an easy check-in. We stayed in the larger "house" on the property called Cedar Creek. It had a full kitchen. Anyway.. it totally met our requirements.. we just wanted a play area that my daughter could play in the snow. Bonus was the property had a small hill for sledding (fine for small children), big area of snow and Bonus, Bonus.. a "barn" with two llama's and three rabbits, which we could visit anytime to feed and pet. If we needed to, we could run into our cabin for potty breaks and warm up with hot chocolate. The location is super close to the heart of town, which in warmer weather would be just a short walk. Anyway, it's a perfect place to stay with small children. We will definitely stay here again.

      Just great

      from

      we stayed her in feb 05, took the kids and the dog. We loved the play area where the kids could sled and we could watch, also the barn with the animals. It is nicley rustic, you feel like your miles away but town is very close. The owners were accomodating and we wont stay anywhere else.

      I will only stay here

      from

      I found this place through a friend about 5 years ago and have never looked back. I have stayed in the Chalet and Hideaway cabins and found them to be just perfect. Hey, this is Big Bear. If you are looking for some type of pretentious ski lodge, go someplace else. This place if perfect for families.

      I had the unfortunate experience at staying at one of the cabins managed by Big Bear Rentals (or something like that) one time as Pine Knot was booked. It was a busy weekend but that should not excuse the EXTREMELY rude check in staff and the fact that we walked into a filthy cabin. We should have know something was wrong when the walkway up to this cabin had not even been cleared! Even when I called to complain I was basically told they they would get to it "when they could". No apologies...NOTHING.

      Stay at Pine Knot. Management is very friendly and the cabins are clean, cozy and perfectly located next to the city. I have already planned my next ski trip!

      Not at all dummpy- romatic and cozy.

      from

      Great small & romantic little cabin. Friendly owners were very helpful in the snow. Easy walk to town and close to the mountains. Newly remodeled cabin! I don't think the peson who called it "small and dumpy" actually stayed at this place.

      Old and Dumpy

      from

      We did not care for this place we felt it was not up to our standards.

      The cabins were small and old.

      Great Escape

      from

      The location is perfect (secluded, but close to downtown), the amenities are great, and the service was fine. However, I did notice that my credit card was double billed - which I hope will be resolved.

      Great getaway!

      from

      This place is less than a 5 minute walk from the Village in a quiet secluded place. Cabins are very well maintained and very comfortable, jacuzzi & fireplace. Had our own BBQ and patio area. Owners are very accomodating and helpful. They even have Llamas and bunnies to pet! Will definately come baack again!

      ... staff is extremely courteous and helpful. We feel that the monthly rates are very reasonable considering how much is offered. All this place needs to be fully self contained is a grocery story and a gas station!

      p.s.- Our "Concierge", Bob, drove up in his golf cart and introduced himself this morning and asked of our specific needs. Holy Cripes, are we staying a month in 5 Star Resort, or what!

      ... funny because you would see all these people excercising along the beach area, just like you see on t.v. sometimes. The houses we saw up in Hollywood ranged from a few thousand dollars to 6 million dollar homes, so that was a cool trip. The next day we got rained on so we went to a Indian Casino were I won at the slot machines. The next day we went to the Joshua Tree National Park, which was really cool, found out why they called it a Joshua tree, I even saw ...
