The Knickerbacker Mansion has an exceptional Sunday brunch. All of their meals are of excellent quality with a variety of menu items. A lot of history at this site. The current owners have raised the bar and we have been here for numerous meals and special events. Loved the Celtic band "Wake the Bard".

I stayed at the Knickerbocker Mansion in mid February, 2016. Although it was not snowing there was plenty of snow on the ground. And this made for a lovely, picturesque setting upon arrival. I asked for and received a quiet room. I stayed not in the Mansion but in one of the Forest Rooms in the Carriage House, namely the... More

Came here to evade the city life for a bit. ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE KNICKERBOCKER. If you love B&B's you will love this one. Had so much fun with the wood stove. Great breakfast too. I plan on taking a trip down memory lane and staying here again. Very meaningful trip for my husband and I.

It is a cozy B&B managed by a lovely couple that welcomes you to the hotel. The main cabin used to be a house and it feels like it. There are pictures and family portraits. Also their Bistro that offers awesome food. The rooms are clean and comfortable.

Upon arriving around 5pm the day before Thanksgiving, we found no one to welcome us. The lights were out in the living room where you enter. We had to search for someone in the kitchen to sign us in. During our 3 day stay, sadly their fireplace was never lit, despite the below freezing temps outdoors. Breakfast offering during the... More

This was a birthday surprise for my hubby and we were lucky enough to have snow. They gave us a call on the day of arrival to see when we'd be arriving. Hadn't anticipated the snow falling, and we didn't have chains for the tires. Upon arriving the entrance driveway we had a little trouble so I went into see... More

My husband and I went to Big Bear for a couples retreat, and decided to book our accommodations at Knickerbocker Mansion sight unseen. We were SO HAPPY we did!
