Appreciating all the attributes of seasonal changes that higher elevations allow, we wanted to have our children grow up experiencing these wonderful gifts of nature that they wouldn't know otherwise. Big Bear is the perfect place, only an 1-2 hours drive from Los Angeles. With both of us working intense hours the only time we can getaway is for brief weekend excursions. The brief time spent driving to Big Bear instead of further away destinations gives us maximum time on enjoyment. We can even make it up and back in one day without debating whether to make the trip or not.
We chose the area of Boulder Bay in Big Bear since it is known to be a little colder therefore, usually getting more snow than other areas. The street that Elk Lodge is on is unique in that the homes that are across the street are much higher up and it appears that there are no cabins directly across from you. The location is also perfect, right off the main hwy. yet far enough to not hear any noise from traffic, only one street up from the lake and walking distance to Pleasure Point Marina where they rent boats of all sizes and kinds, electric canoes and water boats for kids, you can purchase fishing licenses, bait etc. Just down the street from a very popular spot for kids, Magic Mountain - has huge snow play hill for tubing in the winter, a year round bobsled slide where you ride a gondola to the top of the hill to start, 2 active water slides in the summer, mini golf and a go-cart slick track. Also, just 1 mile from the home to the village where there are shops, bowling, restaurtants, cinemas etc. The ski resorts are a brief 5 minute drive. This area of Big Bear is also known as being a more upscale neighborhood, location, location, location.
We love this home, its the perfect mix of modern everyday amenities as well as allowing for the full mountain experience. The way the property itself is laid out lends itself well for children to play in the backyard as well as have a snow play hill of their own during the winter. No need to spend extra money for sledding or tubing in the commercial areas. Convenience to any and all Big Bear activities if you choose to participate. The interior floorplan is great, it's spacious top level allows for lots of guests whether you choose to be outdoors on the deck, inside playing pool, watching TV on the large sectional sofa, or working within the kitchen. The bedrooms are all downstairs as well as a den. The den is perfect for the kids to watch their own TV channels or play their video games. We've also enjoyed having many guests with us, each having their own bed to sleep. We've also enhanced the home with items of interest when all is at home to play, a pool table, a three in one bumper pool/poker/dining table and a nice hot tub. Being close to the lake, it also boasts a lake view that we enjoy from within the home or on the deck when we are relaxing outdoors or BBQing.
