Big Bear City house description

The snows have begun falling and it is time for you to plan a weekend up in Big Bear! Our house has ample outdoor space and shade for relaxing.

Our house has been described as having a 'treehouse' feel to it...at an elevation of over 7,200 feet, our house is above the lake in the Moonridge area, so panoramic views abound. Our place is perfect to just chill out at our quiet retreat and enjoy the view, fresh air or, build a big fire in our gas and wood fireplace and watch a movie together on our HDTV plasma flatscreen with surround sound!

If you are interested in renting a 'home' instead of merely a cabin in Big Bear, then our house is perfect for you.

Our home is located in Moonridge area of Big Bear City (the eastern part of the lake). It is a very quiet and peaceful area-but, still only five minutes from town, the ski resorts, shopping and the lake. While relaxing on our ample balcony space, you will witness nightly panoramic views of the local mountains-and the sunsets are to die for.

Our home is tastefully decorated with pine and brick colors from the nature around it -- there are many 'bear' and outdoor themes in the house. The lighter colors help to give it an open and airy feel. Also, unlike many of the older cabins and homes in the area, our house does not have any of the mildew or moldy smells that are common. There is an amazing open and airy main family room where everyone in your family can congregate to watch a movie with our 42' plasma HDTV w/surround sound system, play a game or share some dinner in front of the fireplace.

Each room is well appointed with a queen size bed, dresser drawers and a television in each bedroom and DVD player in most. There is speedy wireless internet throughout for all your gadgets and we supply a desktop computer for your internet surfing pleasure. We keep an ample supply of magazines, books and videos on site. We have iPOD docking stations in the master and one guest room. For the kids, we have an air hockey table, Playstation console w/games, kids toys, tons of kids books an razor scooters, kid furniture, videos, games and their own TVs, in addition to ample play area in the back of the house --- an extremely safe area for the kids to play. If you have babies or toddlers, we provide childproofing gates and rails to help keep them safe (this is a two story house and we do have steep internal and external stairwells). A note for those with pets -- while we do welcome house trained pets, our outside yard is not fenced -- this is the wilderness after all!

There is comfortable garage parking for one car and space for one other car on the driveway. We have no neighbors on three sides of us -- the trees on the property give one the feeling of serene privacy and peace.

                  Location

                  In addition to the obvious skiing, boarding and snowplay activities in the winter Big Bear now has tons of spring, summer and fall activities. Hiking and mountain biking are plentiful; ziplining is close by; there is an Octoberfest each year from early Sept through October and a pretty solid 4th of July fireworks presentation each year. There is a Children's Discovery Center nearby and Big Bear lake permits tons of boating, wave runners, fishing, motorboat and paddleboard activities. Our area is quiet and safe enough that the kids can simply walk and play on scooters etc... in our neighborhood.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  Why the Owner Chose Big Bear City:
                  Big Bear is perfect for those who love the outdoors for winter or summer activities --- or, those who just want to get away and chill out in the fresh air. In the past 2 years, the 210 Freeway has now made getting to our Big Bear home even easier --- the 210 now goes directly to the base of the mountain meaning that door to door from Pasadena/L.A. area is only a 90 minute drive! Our house is at over 8,000 feet above sea level so, it truly is a getaway.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our house is fully loaded with tons of kitchen utensils, appliances, games, movies, kid's toys, tools -- it truly is a home. All you need to bring is your family!
