The Knickerbocker Mansion Country Inn is located in the heart of Big Bear Lake, California. It nestles on two-plus acres just three blocks from the village and four blocks to the lake. It also backs directly to the San Bernardino National Forest. The historic, rustic log, main lodge was built in 1920 by William Knickerbocker, the first Big Bear Lake Damkeeper, as a private home for his family. It was converted to a Bed & Breakfast in the mid 1980's. It now consists of the main lodge and a separate converted carriage house.
