Me and my husband just got back today from our stay @ the Stargazers Inn & Observatory. This place is amazing! We went there for our Babymoon, the last trip to take before our baby arrives in October. We combined it also for our anniversary which is in September and we won't be able to take a trip then!

The Stargazers Inn was a breath of fresh mountain air compared to the rest of your typical Victorian B&Bs! Doreen, the Innkeeper, has decorated her B&B with fantastic planetary photographs and astronomy books and videos. She offers a wealth of knowledge, not only of astronomy, but of the local Big Bear history and things to do in the area. The... More

We rented the entire inn with two other families for the weekend and had a spectacular time. Great place for kids. The stargazer slideshow, arts and crafts and observatory experience were great for the kids (and grownups). The breakfast surpassed any breakfast at an inn or hotel I've ever had. You will be well cared for at this place. And,... More

We were delighted with our stay at the Stargazer Inn. The rooms are very comfortable with large bathrooms, including a jacuzzi tub. Each room has realistic stars which sparkle in the dark across the ceiling and upper walls. On the weekends, there is a star talk and a chance to view stars through a high powered scope. The breakfasts are... More

Doreen, the innkeeper, is a gem. She made our stay so special. The stars on the ceiling of our cozy little bedroom made the expanse of the universe available to us. The in-room jacuzzi was fabulous, too. We loved the breakfasts she cooked. Simply gourmet! If you love the mountains and long to see the stars in all their splendor,... More

We were so incredibly impressed with the detail Doreen put into her pride and joy. My husband and I are in the midst of project which entails traveling to bed and breakfasts all over the country. One thing we love to see during our travels is a B&B with a great theme. Well, Doreen has this in spades! Additionally, the... More

My husband, my two children (ages 8 & 12) and myself recently stayed for 3 nights at StarGazers Inn. We had a wonderful stay and found ourselves wanting to stay for another night, and if our rooms weren’t already booked for other guests, we certainly would have. The StarGazers Inn is categorized as a bed and breakfast, which it is,... More

My girlfriend did a ton of research trying to find interesting accomodations on relatively short notice (2 weeks). She arranged what we expected to be a lovely and romantic weekend at ths very nice and interesting sounding B & B. By all acounts those expectations looked very resonable. Her correspondence with the proprietor Doreen was very friendly and amazingly detailed.... More

I recently had two guests stay at StarGazers Inn as a result of the positive feedback posted on TripAdvisor. I went to check it out for myself, and was surprised and dismayed to see a negative posting had just been added from a guest that apparently stayed some months back. I know you can't please everyone and that we all... More
