... reached into a clear sky before. On the eve of this Holy Day could this be a message from Our Lord?
The wind died down to a dull roar for a few hours then came back roaring like a lion. The wind finally died down after dark. We like wind but not when the wind blows so hard that our dog's ears don't resemble delta wings on a jet aircraft.
... and Palm Springs sit we passed through an area between two mountains which was full of large windmills, they were too numerous to count, and as soon as we turned perpendicular to them we felt the strength of the wind and we realized why they were here. At the campground the wind was equally as strong and periodically the wind would blow strong enough to rock the camper. After setting up camp we took a ride into Palm Springs to see ...
... away from Redlands. Tomorrow we are planning to head out early and go to Malibu beach before meeting our foster families. Supposedly we are on a large camp with around 90 kids, and 8 adults. After leaving the lecture theatre we all went to have a look at some of the cars which have just arrived and look so nice - there seems like quite a few Mercedes cars and so many other classy cars - it felt like we were back at Epcot.
... sweet and gracious.. We can not wait to return... My boys (15, 13 and 5) are already asking when can go back and we just came back home yesterday! Looking forward to our next trip to Big Bear and the Golden Bear Cottages. We give a top accommodations review to Golden Bear ...
... tub. It was a bit 'ouch' when you first put your feet in the warm water because the feet were so cold, but once in the water it was so nice. It was a cool contrast lifting your arms out of the warm water into the cold air.
After warm showers we watched a bit of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - such a funny movie!!!
Pyrotechnic Dan played with the fire, Joel played with his iPhone, and Darren feel asleep on the lounge ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pine Knot Guest Ranch Big Bear Lake
Wonderful! It Was our 3rd Stay and We'll Be Back!
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
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.
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.
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 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.
Not at all dummpy- romatic and cozy.
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
We did not care for this place we felt it was not up to our standards.
The cabins were small and old.
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.
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!
