Moonridge chalet description

Perched high on a ridge, Blue Spruce Chalet offers spectacular views from huge decks and seemingly-endless windows along with beautiful rustic decor and modern amenities! Come on up and barbecue on the spacious upper deck as you delight in the splendid alpine views under crystal-blue skies. Soak in a bubbling jacuzzi on the secluded lower deck while gazing at surrounding evergreens. (In winter, this is a great place to enjoy a snowstorm!) When you don't feel like barbecuing, the fully stocked kitchen and large dining room make for satisfying meals. Play a few games at the air hockey table, then snuggle up with loved ones in the beautiful, cozy living room in front of a blazing fire. Don't miss out on the amazing night skies, filled with billions of stars. Make memories that will be forever cherished! Your delight is my goal!

                  Car: Necessary

                  Blue Spruce Chalet is 5-10 minutes away from all of the exciting recreational opportunities on the mountain!! Go for the gusto -- zip lining over the spectacular valleys near California's highest peak! Big Bear Lake has wonderful hiking trails -- you can even connect with the famous Pacific Crest Trail. The lake is a gorgeous site throughout the year. In the summer, go power boating, jet skiing, sailing, or even parasailing! Walk or bike for miles along the lake on a paved path -- those with binoculars might see eagles! The Discovery Center is a great place to learn about the area's native plants and wildlife. Get close to Grizzly and black bears, cougars, bobcats, wolves, and many other animals at the must-see Big Bear (Rescue) Zoo -- one of the top alpine zoos in the world! Stargazers will be thrilled with the billions of stars visible in the night sky! When summer changes to fall, enjoy the bright colors of changing leaves. The invigorating cool, crisp air is ideal for hiking, biking, and brisk walks along the lake. In wintertime, bundle up for downhill/ cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and sledding/ tubing down the breathtaking Alpine Slide! Bring the kids for the outdoor experience of a lifetime! Don't miss the excitement in the downtown Village -- take a ride in a horse drawn carriage, drink hot chocolate as the huge Christmas tree lights up, and visit shops and restaurants filled with Christmas cheer! Alas, when winter ends, spring awakens with bursting blooms and chirping birds. Dust off the hiking boots, unpack the golf clubs and fishing gear, and don't forget the kites and Frisbee -- cool, breezy days and fresh mountain air will lift your spirits as a glorious new season arrives in Southern California's alpine paradise -- sunny Big Bear Lake!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: I discovered this wonderful house when I needed to retreat from life in the fast lane. Walking by the lake, hiking on the trails, and watching the morning come while drinking coffee on the deck filled me with joy and renewed my spirit. When I needed to return to city life, I just couldn't sell my dream home -- one day, I'll move back for good. I always enjoyed sharing my home with friends and neighbors, so making it a vacation cabin has been a pleasure.

                  Why the Owner Chose Moonridge:
                  I had no intention of buying a cabin the day I came up to look at a few properties 'just for the heck of it.' This cabin was the first one I saw -- when we arrived at the next property, I told the realtor, 'Stop! I want that one I just looked at!' The amazing views and the inviting rustic interior were exactly what I wanted, even though I didn't know it until I walked through the front door and saw the mountain views through the windows!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  Luxury and comfort combined with rustic charm make this a wonderful place to enjoy life, but the magnificent views from huge decks are what truly makes this chalet unique!
