Family owned property and they are so friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend The Cienaga Creek Ranch to anyone looking to relax and getaway from the hustle & bustle. I will be... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

After searching for a nice secluded cabin away from the city, we found this place and booked for the weekend. Its located on a private ranch just off the highway, however, we seldom heard any of the traffic traveling up the road. The cabin has a king bed with a jet tub located in the room that sits in front... More

We booked one night as a brief getaway during a busy summer season. We couldn't have been more pleased. The location was convenient, less than a two hour drive. When we arrived, there were large, freshly baked gourmet cinnamon rolls waiting for us in our cabin accompanied by a personalized "welcome" note. What a treat! The rolls were simply delicious...

I have stayed at Cienaga Creek Ranch many times. I have always had a wonderful experience. The staff is attentive and courteous, and the home-made cinnamon rolls a sweet welcome! Cienaga Creek ranch is just far enough away from the touristy Big Bear City/Lake to be so very peaceful and quiet tucked into the woods, yet close enough to go... More

As one can see by my previous post I love this place. It was almost perfect for a dog owner seeking solitude. Until now. I have two dogs that are terrified of fireworks so I payed holiday rates to be where there were no fireworks going and it worked great on the fourth: Unfortunatly there was no warning to guests...

Bill, I am very sorry your stay was an unhappy one for you. As a protector of America and a police officer for 17 years, I realize fear is rampant throughout our great country because of a few unstable folks that attack the innocent throughout our lands. So, even with advance warning, the target practice of the protectors can sound... More

Far enough out of town so you actually felt the privacy. Vicki & her Daughters were wonderful Hosts, they would deliver delicious home baked goodies... More

We had a wonderful stay and this was a return visit. We were in the Sunset cabin and we loved it!!! Hiking trails were outstanding and and the treats were the best. Went into town and had a blast. Simply fantastic and can't wait to visit again. Great birthday celebration.

Can't wait to go back. Very friendly people and the cabins are very cozy. Loved the fact that we could bring our dogs. They took a jacuzzi with us every night. "Just Kidding". Perfect time of the year for dogs because of rattlers.

This was a last minute spring break trip for our family of four. Our kids, ages 5 & 6, had never been to the mountains. We were in luck, spring snow had fallen the night before so the kids were able to slide the hill right next to our cabin. The cabin is 15 minutes from Big Bear City ,... More
