We were so pleased with our stay in Cabin 18. The owner, Larry was very friendly and helped make check in a breeze. We enjoyed this rustic cabin set among lovely and cool pine trees. The cabin was very clean. Had a wood burning fireplace, jacuzzi tub and plenty of hot water. The little touches like sparkling cider, chocolates and... More

LOVED our experience. PERFECT from beginning to end. PET FRIENDLY. In fact, we plan to stay here always. Each cabin has a Jacuzzi, Fireplace (with plenty of wood), Grill, DIRECTV, and the most comfortable beds you can imagine. We felt at home. Super clean. The cabins are conveniently located to feel isolated. However the main strip is just down the... More

Wonderful place to stay - Friendly staff, clean, comfortable, well-stocked cabins, tv, movies & books, convenient walking to The Village, playground, rabbits & llamas for kids to feed & pet. Just an awesome place for your Big Bear experience! We will be back to Pine Knot many times in the future, I'm sure!

This place has the cutest cabins in Big Bear. We went to Big Bear this weekend for a family get together. We stayed in the Cedar Creek cabin. The cabin was super clean, smelled great, and was stocked with everything we needed for a fun weekend out of town. All we needed was our food and we were set. The... More

We stayed at the bungalow from February 28 to March 2, 2014. We got lucky because on that weekend of our stay, Big Bear received several inches of snow. That provided the fun in the snow we were hoping to have. This bungalow have a private front and back yard where the kids had a lot of fun playing in... More

This was our first time visiting Pine Knot Guest Ranch. We stayed in Cabin 18 and it was just perfect for a family of four. The fireplace and Jacuzzi tub were a treat! The children enjoyed the feeding the llamas and bunnies. They even took the llamas on an afternoon stroll! The village is a short walk away. We were... More

This is our second time to rent from Pine Knot. The Little Bear home is clean and cozy. Very close to the Village and Snow Summit. We loved cooking our meals in the kitchen instead of eating out. Will stay there again. Thank you Derek!

Our first "cabin camping" and Pine Knot Guest Ranch totally blew us away. It really wasn't camping at all in the end -- we felt very spoiled with the fireplace and Jacuzzi and kitchenette... and the distance to the village really encouraged us to just dine out every day and not cook (yay!) Our 6-yr-old puppy totally loved it there... More

Our annual Veterans Day getaway for our anniversary landed us in Big Bear this year. The Pine Knot Guest Ranch was perfect. We were in Cabin 20 which was seperated from the other cabins on a hill. It had a king size bed, wood burning fireplace, huge jacuzzi tub, and kitchenette. The kitchenette had a coffee maker, cutlery, plates and... More
