How would you like get away for awhile and stay in a place that is worth every bit of the value you long for in housing accomodations and is "family" oriented ? Hard to find nowadays you may say. You are absolutely right! It takes a hit or miss chance unless you do research. I did that research and must... More

We stayed in cabin 19. It was clean and perfect size for a couple. There was a new TV and the bed was comfortable. The jacuzzi tub was great. Nice little place to get away at. The grounds are clean and quiet.

This was our first visit to Big Bear. We stayed in #20 and #19. Both of the cabins are clean and comfy. My only challenge was I thought we had a full fridge. I brought a ton of food and was disappointed when we arrived. Otherwise we had a good visit. The property is pet friendly and the owner is... More

This review is for Little Bear, one of their external cabins not for Pine Knot itself. The photos on the website are misleading - this rental cabin is tiny, poky, dark and shabby. The back deck is heavily overlooked and very small, the BBQ was filthy so we never used it. The bedrooms are tiny, dark and airless, and the... More

We are sorry that you did not like the Little Bear vacation home. Thank you for letting us know about the BBQ, which has now been cleaned. We are puzzled about your other comments. Both bedrooms have 2 windows for cross ventilation and natural light. The upstairs bedroom has a sliding glass door to the upper deck, so lots of... More

We live in LA and wanted to get away from the city for a few days. We trekked over to Big Bear and stayed at Pine Knot Guest Ranch. Had a great time! Our cabin was cozy and adorable, and the owner, Larry, couldn't be a nicer guy. Our dog loved it too - especially the llamas.

The staff was very friendly and... More

Out of all the cabins affiliated with Pine Knot Ranch this cabin faced... More

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
