We stayed in the Hunter's Lodge. It was only about 450sq.ft. but it felt so spacious. We felt secluded from the other cabins and it was a very peaceful & quite area. The extra touches Scott & Vickie put into each room before you get there makes all the difference between a "mountain cabin" and your "memorable perfect escape". We...

This place is absolutely amazing! Vickie and her staff did an awesome job making me and my wife's stay memorable, and not easily forgotten. They think of absolutely everything to make sure you have a great stay. From the fresh cinnamon rolls when you check in, to the delivery of banana bread and juices to you door in the morning,...

Everything we had hoped...a cabin in the woods filled with light and peace and decorated from the pages of Houzz...in a most beautiful, serene forest setting. We loved it and will be back to say hi to our delightful hosts. And a note for families...we traveled with two little girls 6 and 2 1/2 and they loved pine cone bowling,...

Staying at the Morning Sunrise cabin was the perfect way to enjoy Big Bear while also being in a quiet and secluded area just outside of town. The ultra comfortable bed and jacuzzi were great touches especially after a long day of mountain biking. Access to the Pacific Crest trail right on the property offers spectacular mountain views. Amazing vviews...

We've stayed at the Kopitch Cottage, Jupiter Ridge and the Mountain Sunset cabin - all wonderful! From the glorious surroundings, to the special touches the owners provide (like the delicious homemade cinnamon buns and welcome note) and for those of us that don't like to leave our 4 legged friends behind - the fact that Cienaga Ranch is dog friendly...

My husband found this place online while looking for a peaceful and quiet place to spend our 44th Wedding Anniversary with our grown kids. It sounded too good to be true while reading all the other reviews about this place but we were pleasantly surprised to find out that it was exactly how the others had described it, absolutely beautiful!...

Vickie and Gene add the little touches that are so often overlooked -- even sometimes at high end resorts -- but make such a difference. The homemade cinnamon rolls and freshly ground coffee are just a few examples. Will definitely be back.

My friend and I took our 2 horses up to stay at Cienaga Creek Ranch in July. The weather was beautiful. We were able to sleep in and ride mid morning and it still was not to hot. The PCT trail was stunning and the views magnificent. Our horses had a large coral to stay in with plenty of shade.The...

“All cabins are somewhat secluded, but still within view of each other. For a more private location, request the Kopitch cabin.”

“Jupiter Ridge has very spacious rooms. Mountain Sunset has a hot tub in the bedroom...which could be either off-putting or exciting depending on what you're looking for. We love the Kopitch Cottage best, but it is very basic and the least fancy. It is more private in location than some of the other small cabins. All of the facilities there are great! No wifi though...did miss that!”
