The Good: The Location is Great. the property is great, compared to most Hotels in Big bear, the rooms are very nice, clean, and offer very nice views (although a small dresser would have been helpful). The bad: The owner makes you feel like you are intruding, there is no attempt by owners to acknowledge you (despite multiple attempts) ,...

My daughters and myself just returned from a very expensive weekend at Knickerbockers. The room for two nights was $725. being President's weekend. Had to stay at the Carriage House since 3 of us and one slept on the extra bed set up. This cost an extra $75/night and both my girls complained how terribly uncomfortable it was. Friday night...

Very nice meal. This was our second visit as we went over NY as well on 12/30. Wonderful meals and we tried much on the menu...salmon, petite filet, lobster macaroni, sciopino, seared tuna...All were superb. We brought our own wine ($18 fee) so we can't comment on the wine selection. View cozy decor and small dining area. Easy parking and...

Do not book your reservation and plan to cancel. If you do the owner will charge you the full amount immediately on your credit card. I plan on contacting my bank and fighiting this as the owner (Stan) advised me kids were invited of any age so my wife and I booked a room with our two children. Never did...

I loved forest setting a long distance from the 18. Lakeview II room was fine with good view of snow covered forest. Breakfast was superb and both Stan and his wife are great folks who work hard to maintain B&B. Great holiday decor, DVD and VHS selection. Manor was real hospitable with Tea & HC all day and night. Enter...

Stan was thorough and very helpful. The rooms were clean and fresh with homemade fudge for us to eat in the room. In the lobby, they had coffee and cakes for an afternoon snack. Just a few blocks from SnowSummit, it was super easy to get around. A stones throw from downtown BigBear Village, we had a great dinner at...

Spent a very lovely 3 nights stay for New Years with my young son and husband. Stayed in the Carriage House Suite..which was very spacious. Has a fire place too! The Inn is 5 - 10 minutes away from Snow Summit and you can walk to the village (maybe 3 blocks if that) The food was fantastic, well prepared and...

The room was tiny and attached to another room which was fine except no children were supposed to be allowed. Our neighbors had a little girl who was very well behaved but unfortunately we could still hear everything through the thin walls and I am quite sure they could hear us as well; on our anniversary evening, There were light...

My review is solely for the restaurant. My family goes every year for special occasions, most recently Christmas Eve. The atmosphere is prefect for Christmas eve, just the kind of mountain cabin feel you want in the snow! The good is great and they have a big wine selection for Big Bear. I highly recommend the sticky shrimp!!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Knickerbocker, yes there was a spider web in the bathroom, and yes Stanley does come across as a grumpy ole' man but its easy to over come that. Just talk to him for a few, he is a person like us all. HOWEVER, we had a great time. We stayed...
