Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: In early 2012, we stood on the deck of what would become Birch Bear and looked at the 180 degree unobstructed view of the slopes, the Lake, golf course and the whole valley in front of us. It was breathtaking and the most magnificent view in Big Bear. It needed extensive remodeling; we started over, preserving the fantastic views and 7 months later, Birch Bear Lodge was open for guests. We hope you can come enjoy this paradise on the mountaintop!
Why the Owner Chose Upper Moonridge, Moonridge, Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
Each year we came to Big Bear to enjoy the mountain air, hike the trails, and enjoy the environment. We found a home that needed a lot of TLC, but the view was worth saving. A lot of hard work followed, a lot of fun and a lot of pride in this fantastic Lodge. Some say Birch Bear has the 'best view in Big Bear' for its 180 degree views of the ski resorts, golf course and the Lake.....from top to bottom, including the new Spa with color changing LED lights and waterfall,its ready for visitors!
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
View, view, privacy and views! From pre-dawn sunrise of pink sky, mist covering the Lake like a cotton blanket, clearing to sunny blues skies over glistening snow on Bear Mountain. Slopes with skiers so close you feel you can count them, to the soft white lights winding down the night ski slopes on Snow Summit, to the quiet pines... There is no place like Birch Bear.
