Lorraine Taylor,
Your Hostess (and her four favorite people)

Inspirations at Big Bear Lake, has been a dream of Lorraine Taylor, your hostess, for more than 30 years. Life just seemed to get in the way until a few years ago. Things started to come together, so she began looking at properties all over Southern California searching for just the right place to create the craft retreat of her dreams. After several months, a new property in Big Bear, Calif., became available...and it was the perfect fit.

Inspirations opened for it's first group in May of 2009. Loraine has been welcoming creative groups since then. Many of the groups come back every year. Some visit 2 or 3 times a year.

Lorraine has enjoyed crafting of all kinds for most of her life. She has dabbled in just about every type of creative idea and always considers the time spent creating, the most enjoyable... well maybe except for the time spent with family and friends. Lorraine also has more than 25 years of experience in organizing creative group cruises, assisting teachers and store owners to organize and promote their cruise. Combining all this experience, Inspirations at Big Bear Lake was created.

It is a place where Lorraine hopes each guest will come to enjoy, create and refresh in the beautiful mountain atmosphere. While getting Inspirations ready for guests, Lorraine had the support of her family and friends. Anyone who came to visit was soon put to work helping her create and decorate. Lorraine wants to thank each person who supported her with their time and talents. See their smiling faces.
