Destination guide

Do you believe in ghosts?

The beauty of small-town life is alive and well in the impressive Redlands. Situated east of Los Angeles, it provides a quiet respite from the hustle, bustle, glitz, and glamour so typical of the area’s major cities. When you book a Redlands vacation rental, you can expect a pleasant mix of beautiful scenery, enjoyable activities, and even a thriving cultural community. If you can handle the possibility of a little scare, Redlands is also one of the most beloved ghost towns in the country! It’s an intriguing spot with a deep history and a world of adventure.

Things to do

Celeb-worthy mansions and a glass museum

Redlands is home to what is considered one of the most stunning Victorian homes in the nation: Morey Mansion. It’s a celebrity in its own right, appearing in many TV shows and movies. Another architectural marvel is Kimberly Crest House and Gardens, a lavish late 19th-century castle set on immaculate lawns. Since you’ve booked a Redlands vacation rental, chances are you’re interested in the area—its history is on display at the San Bernardino County Museum. The Historical Glass Museum may not be made of actual glass, but the glassware inside is absolutely stunning.


Scare up a good time downtown

Don’t be fooled by its picturesque beauty or sleepy charm—it’s those quaint Victorian homes and stately manors that have the most fascinating ghost stories of all. If you’re more of an outdoorsy type, head to Ford Park or Redlands Dog Park and set up a picnic before making your way downtown to experience one of the area’s many breweries and tasting rooms. You can even pop into a buzzy pub and catch some live music! The streets are also dotted with unique boutiques that are as full of character as Redlands itself. You’ll find an abundance of one-of-a-kind treasures that capture the spirit of the area.


Stunning weather? We're here for it.

Don’t let the promise of stunning weather prevent you from booking that Redlands vacation rental. Not that it would—but with nearly 300 days of sunshine every year, only a handful of rainy days, and temperatures that hover in the mid-90s during summertime, it’s essentially perfect. In fact, it’s considered one of the country’s most pleasant climates. If you favor cooler weather, you may encounter a 40-degree day during winter, although snowfall is negligible and really more of a fleeting memory than an actual issue here.

Natural features

Picture-perfect in every way

Approximately 10 miles from San Bernardino, Redlands doesn't disappoint from a picture-perfect POV. Let’s say the prospect of gazing at nothing but snow-capped mountains in the distance didn’t sway you. You'd book a Redlands vacation rental just to be in proximity to the magnificent palm trees and gardens. You’re just a few miles south of San Bernardino National Forest, an epic expanse of land whose claims to fame are the 500-mile trails, color-drenched flowers, and sparkling Big Bear Lake. Really, what’s not to love here?
