"Knickerbocker Mansion has risen to become the most charming and sophisticated inn on the lake's south side. Today's guest rooms are a cedar-paneled dream, with luxury bed linens, cozy bathrobes, modern marble bathrooms with deluxe Australian showerheads, and refreshing mountain views. After Bicanic's stunning breakfast, you can spend the day relaxing on veranda rockers or garden hammocks; Big Bear's village is also an easy walk away."

General Information: Welcome to The Knickerbocker Mansion Country Inn ... located in the heart of Big Bear Lake, California. It nestles on two-plus acres just three blocks from the village of Big Bear and four blocks to Big Bear Lake. The Mansion backs directly to the San Bernardino National Forest which offers hiking, biking and many more outdoor activities.

There are four large, corner rooms located on the second floor of the main house. Each is beautifully decorated with antiques, quality linens, and an abundance of the original natural cedar paneling.

All rooms have private phone, TV/VCR, and an adjoining private bath complete with tub and shower. Access to the second floor verandah (running the length of the main house) allows guests to relax while enjoying "tree top" views of the lake and surrounding forest.

The 1st floor has a reception entrance, living room with original native rock fireplace and 1/2 log stairway. The ceiling and much of the walls are covered with the original wide wood paneling. The dining room also has an original native rock fireplace and original cedar wood paneling.

A 2nd dining room converted from part of the 1st floor original exterior verandah brings the outside inside. It is a perfect place to enjoy a wonderful gourmet breakfast, when the weather does not permit dining on the outside back patio.
