About Vickie Wilson

We both grew up in Orange County, Southern California, and moved to San Bernardino in 1981. Desiring our sons to grow up with some space around them, we purchased the ranch near Big Bear Lake in 1991 when our boys were 6, 4, 2 and 2 months old. We lived in the 500 sf cottage that is now called Ironwood Lodge - the only building on the ranch. The six of us lived in the cottage (yes, we were a bit crazy!!) while we built what is now the main house - called Granite Vista. It took us 3 years before it was completed enough for us to move in. We did the majority of building ourselves, with help from family and friends. After moving in to the 'big' house, Ironwood sat empty for a few years. With the encouragement of some friends who owned a lodge in town, we remodeled it and began renting it out. Our guests liked it so much that we built three more - Mountain Sunset, Hunter's Lodge and Wild Rose - ready for New Year's 2000. A few years later we acquired the Kopitch Cottage (built by the Kopitch family) that sat on 10 acres bordering our original 40 acres…. then a few years later we built Juniper Ridge - 2000 sf, 3 bedroom 2 bath family cabin. We recently remodeled our home to have available for large groups. Now that the boys are grown, we love to travel and spend several months every year exploring other countries on our motorcycle - BMW 1200 GS. We recently spent 5 months in Central America and 2 months in Thailand. Though we love traveling, there is no place like home!

Why Vickie Wilson chose Inland Empire

Our ranch is only 2 hours from Los Angeles, but in an area where there are no utilities. This fact allowed us to purchase acreage at a reasonable cost. With advances in technology, solar power has become more affordable. Every cottage and home on our ranch is run on solar power! Far from utility lines, yet only 15 minutes from grocery stores, restaurants, skiing and the lake, we feel like our ranch is in an ideal location.

What makes this cottage unique

Our ranch is forested with tall pines, huge junipers, fir and lodge pole pines. To hike through the forest on the trails on and around our ranch is one of our favorite past times. The Pacific Crest Trail crosses our ranch. At an elevation of 8200, the sky is blue and the stars are amazing. The peace and quiet is so restful.

Delightful place for two and our dog. Had everything we wanted and more. Clean and comfortable with all the amenities. The sky lights made it nice and bright and the double shower was great. The breakfast treats were a nice touch. We enjoyed the quiet and the ability to walk the dog off leash on several trails. Very peaceful.

Perfect cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. It was perfect for me, my husband and our dog. We loved being able to take our Aussie for hikes (OFF LEASH!) right from our front door. The only hard part is taking him back to our fenced yard. The cabin was everything it promises. Very clean, charming and warm even during a pretty good storm. We'll definitely be back.

Perfect couple's cabin

  • 5 of 5

I spent some time looking for a "secluded cabin" in Big Bear and was sadly about to give up when I came across this Cabin. It looked like exactly what I was looking for: quiet, off the grid, and cozy. All that remained was to see if it was as great in reality as it appeared online - it was better. You'll feel like you're in a dream land, it's spectacular. Highly recommend this cabin for any couple.
