A visit to the Knickerbocker Mansion & Bistro’s elegant Big Bear Lake bed and breakfast brings with it a contentment and relaxation seldom achieved today. It is that pause we all search for between traffic jams, work deadlines, raising the kids and social demands that never relent. An intermittent retreat, that time of refreshing, hidden between layers of life. Please join us and wrap yourself in the warmth and uniqueness of this grand old place, and may your soul be tended and time suspended at the Knickerbocker.
