          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: Linaker Lodge was created so that we had a mountain retreat for our families to enjoy throughout the year

          Why the Owner Chose Castle Glen Estates:
          Big Bear enamored us as we could escape to the mountains within two hours and have a place to relax and recover. Our hope is that other families can enjoy Linaker Lodge when we aren't able to be there

          The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
          Linaker Lodge is located in the prestigious Castle Glen region of Big Bear Lake. In addition to being close to the ski slopes and the lake, our home is located on a cul-de-sac offering a private and secluded experience.
