About this listing
Enjoy the serenity of the mountains while having the convenience of a central location
The "Ocean Cabin" is one of three cabins on the property of Inspirations at Big Bear Lake. The property is convenient to Big Bear Village & restaurants and both ski resorts and only a couple blocks from Meadows Park and the lake. Each cabin, except the "In to the Woods" cabin(see cabin description) has one bedroom and bath with living room and small kitchenette. Each cabin has Satellite TV and WiFi. Note: Mountain WiFi is not as consistent as Big City WiFi.
Inspirations has been created as a place for guests to come to enjoy and refresh in the beautiful Southern California mountains. There is also a main house and project rooms for groups.
Each cabin (and room in the main house) is decorated around a theme that Lorraine, the Inn Keeper, thinks inspire people. The yard is a fun and peaceful place to read or just sit and relax. Have received designation of being a Humming Bird and Butterfly habitat.
There is lots to do in Big Bear in every season. Clean air and friendly people make Big Bear Lake the best mountain vacation spot in Southern California. So come on up and enjoy.
NEW BED! YEAH! King size.
Please note: The nightly fee includes up to 2 adults and 2 children. There is an additional $25 per adult per night over 2. If you are a family of 2 adults and up to 2 children, just specify 2 guests to get the right pricing and let Lorraine know about the kids.
Please note: There is a two night minimum stay on three day holiday weekends. Christmas Holiday season, Dec. 19-Jan. 5 has a three night minimum. Check in time is 2pm and check out time is 11am.
Winter Snow Policy: Consideration will be given to re-booking your stay if snow fall closes two of the three roads into Big Bear the day of your arrival. This would be available to you for the period within 90 days of your reservation.
Please note: Pets are welcome in this cabin. There is a $50 pet fee.
Aside from the cozy comfort of the cabin, there is a great outdoor seating area with an outdoor fire pit.(propane-no open fires allowed)-not available in the winter
Picnic tables and BBQ which is on the deck of the main house.(not available in winter)
Even though the property is close to everything, it remains a very quite mountain experience.
There is an inforamtion notebook with cabin and area information. Check in time is 2pm and check out is 11 am - time is flexible upon approval. I just ask that you are considerate of others, especially at night.
Please note: The kitchen is equiped with basic eating and cooking items but no food items.
Very nice little stay! Lorraine was helpful with dinner recommendations and willing to help if we had any further questions. It was definitely a place we would stay at again!
Amazingly relaxing setting and the cabin clean was adorable. We had the Ocean cabin and the bed was super comfortable, great water pressure in the shower and a fully functional kitchen. Beautiful quilts to keep you warm at night! The little courtyard area is wonderful and we had our coffee there every morning while watching the various wildlife. Lorraine was available and very accommodating and was quick to respond to emails. My husband and I will be back!
We had a wonderful time @ Lorraine's cabin , centrally located . Enjoyed relaxing by the fire pit , cozy cabin . Highly recommend.
The neighborhood was great. The photos were accurate. Lorraine was a good host, very thorough and access was super easy. However, we were disappointed that the cabin was overall a little dusty and musty.
My father and I went up to Big Bear for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Lorraine's cabin was perfect. The size is perfect for two people. I was able to sleep very comfortably on the futon in the living room. The kitchen had a good amount of supplies. It even had a can opener, which we had forgotten. The TV has plenty of cable channels to enjoy when you are not out enjoying surroundings. The cabin is within walking distance to the lake. It is about a 5-7 minute walk. If you want to go into the village, you can walk, but it is about a mile or so away. There is a McDonalds, 7-11, and El Pollo Loco within a few blocks. I would completely recommend Inspirations!
Lorraine was very accommodating and her hospitality was above par. We appreciated all that she offered especially a nice close and comfortable establishment that you can put your feet up.

About the Host, Lorraine
Together with my son and the rest of family, we created Inspirations at Big Bear Lake. It has been a dream of mine for many years to create a place where groups can come to refresh and enjoy spending time immersed in their creative passion.
The property has a main house and project room for groups but also came with the three cabins. I have been able to use all the talents and activities that I love creating a great place. Everything about this project was fun because I love all types of crafts, decorating, cooking and meeting new people.
I have two grown children who have married wonderful people and provided me with four fabulous Grandchildren. I always enjoy having them up to Big Bear when there are no guests in the house.
I have also been in the travel business for over 25 years and love cruising and other types of travel. I have always felt that traveling,visiting new areas and meeting the locals helps us to be a more tolerate person.
I would love to have you come up and enjoy this with me.
