We read the Grimms' "Trip of the Week" article on Lake Arrowhead (Aug. 2) and felt compelled to write about one of the most magical places that was not mentioned. The Hilton is a lovely place to spend the night, but if you are looking for a special treat, the Storybook Inn is a must, especially if bed-and-breakfast inns are your preference. Just 1 1/2 miles from the lake. Abundant freshly cut flowers grace the large living room that is elegantly decorated with an Oriental touch. At the other end of the room you lounge in the beautiful solarium as you observe the 100-mile view from Redlands to the Pacific Ocean.

As we waited for the proprietor to open the front door of the Storybook Inn, I thought: So far, so good. We had found the inn perched off Highway 18 in a stretch of remarkable vistas that made it plain why this road is called the Rim of the World. The neatly renovated 1940 clapboard structure was even more attractive than it appeared on the Web. But my husband, Sean, and I were bringing our two kids, 6 and 8, and kids are at best a question mark at a bed-and-breakfast.

When my husband and I decided to go away for a weekend we selected the Storybook Inn from a tour book and I must say, despite your article's criticisms, we were not a bit disappointed. In fact we were enchanted by the place. It was full the three nights we were there and all the guests and hosts were very congenial. The place isn't fancy, it's homey. The food was fantastic.

Here are a few tips for enjoying some out-of-town shows. * Festival Old Globe Theatre's Summer Shakespeare Festival Balboa Park, San Diego, June 18-Oct. 1, www.oldglobe.

Federal authorities today will announce plans to close vast stretches of the San Bernardino National Forest, the second time in a week that severe fire and drought conditions have forced officials to shut down public wilderness in Southern California. Mike Dietrich, the U.S. Forest Service fire chief in the San Bernardino forest, said Tuesday evening that the closures will go into effect at noon Friday and could last a month or more.

Blue skies, evergreen forests, azure lakes and a host of bed and breakfast inns promise relief from the megalopolis in midsummer. "It's a lot nicer up here than it is down there," said Janice Hague, who was having a leisurely breakfast with her husband Chris on the back porch of the Eagle's Nest B&B in this quiet alpine community.

If you're a people person, have a knack for decorating and love to show off your gourmet-cooking talents, you're already halfway through the list of essentials for becoming a good bed-and-breakfast (B&B) innkeeper. You also need handyman know-how, lots of energy for around-the-clock days and a head for business management. In the last several years, as more and more people have given bed-and-breakfast entrepreneurship a try, the number of such establishments in California has quintupled.

For precious days, perhaps a week in the spring and fall, a blue heron pauses from migratory flight and settles into Ladybug Pond. J. Putnam Henck doesn't know whether it's the same bird that pays a visit each year. But he likes to think that it is.
