... then back to their place for happy hour on the patio and a game of Sequence! Out came the calendar, as we planned every moment of the next week, to be sure we wouldn't waste any time.
Sunday, we shared in their famous "Eggs Knollenberg" before heading out to Empire Polo Grounds
... along with the local weather forecast. This is an extremely hazardous place.
Yesterday morning Betsy and I went to the onsite golf course where she played with her girl friends. And a nicer bunch of people you couldn't wish to meet. This is a pretty idealic lifestyle, if only someone would turn the suna down and move the fault line.
In the afernoon we went up the Palm ...

Well this month the Boys and Girls club of Orange County had a dinner for all the recipients. Also at this dinner they would announce the winner for Orange County who would go onto the next level to possibly be selected as the Youth of the Year for California. This was a semi-formal event at the Atrium in Anahiem. Becca was allowed to bring ten ...

Not wanting to arrive too early, we had a look around the area before arriving at the Elks Lodge. To our surprise, the lot was pretty big and get this, had free electrical hook ups! Sweet! We soon realized that most of the people, inside ...

So overall I can’t complain about my time here at Redlands. I think I have been trying to prevent the infamous ‘sophomore slump’(I am not too sure what it is but I know it entails the pattern that most sophomores tend to loose motivation in school and become apathetic and/or slightly depressed) and if all this doesn’t do it then I don’t know what will. Anyways I miss you all very much and can’t wait to see you! Happy ...

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!
