Big Bear Lake, California – Your Four Season Destination for Fun!

Welcome to beautiful Big Bear Lake, a premier four season town in Southern California. Big Bear offers a complete array of activities to satisfy everyone. Whether it be a thrilling descent down the slopes or a relaxing cruise around the lake.

The Knickerbocker Mansion Country Inn is located in the heart of Big Bear Lake, California. It nestles on two-plus acres just three blocks from the village and four blocks to the lake. It also backs directly to the San Bernadino National Forest.

Meanwhile the quaint Village of Big Bear is only three short blocks away and has numerous restaurants, a first run theater, coffee house, shops and outdoor fireplaces that invite you to linger and enjoy the day, or stroll another block and watch the boats on the Lake.

From the front door of the Mansion you may also access hiking trails through the San Bernadino National Forrest, and experience first hand the beauty of the mountains and the closeness of nature. A five minute drive will bring you to Snow Summit or Bear Mountain, both great ski resorts. In the summer, a ride up the lift at Snow Summit for lunch will provide a jumping off place for hiking, and extraordinary mountain biking. The lift ride back down with its views of the lake and valley will take your breath away.
