The Destination
Big Bear Lake is Southern California's premier four-season playground. Less than two hours from Los Angeles, this rustic mountain town features ponderosa pines in place of palm trees and pick-up trucks instead of convertibles, with visitors from around the region flocking here to hike, ski, and snowboard the San Bernardino Mountains, fish the lake, and soak up the serenity of the backcountry.

The Digs
Tucked away on two and a half acres of forested land just three blocks from the village, Knickerbocker Mansion Country Inn looks much the same today as it did when it was built by William Knickerbocker himself in 1920. A miner and logger by trade, Knick wouldn't flinch at hiking four miles from the nearest ranch store to his log mansion—with 100 pounds of beef on his back. He was tough, the kind of guy who hosted rowdy card games, and there's a bullet graze in the kitchen to prove it. Some folks even say they've seen Knick's ghost strolling the property at night, ax firmly in hand.

The inn comprises four carriage house rooms (Lake View I, Lake View II, Forest View I, and Forest View II), each with rustic charm and vintage décor. Halved logs make up the mansion's exterior, and two original stone fireplaces warm up the cozy interior. But don't expect outmoded cuisine at this log cabin. You'll each enjoy an included gourmet two-course breakfast that includes fresh fruit, a hot entrée, a sweet treat, coffee, and juice.

The Diversions
• Tuck into rack of lamb and Chef Robert's lobster mac 'n' cheese at the on-site Bistro at the Mansion
• Hit the hiking trails and ski slopes of Big Bear Mountain Resorts
• Arrange a guided fishing trip on the lake with Fish Big Bear
• Stroll the shops of Big Bear Lake Village

  • "The innkeeper and chef really made us feel welcome. They made sure that our stay was enjoyable, which it truly was. The breakfast far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend this establishment for a high-class experience."
