Shay Meadow


The area known as “Shay Meadow” is located at the eastern end of Big Bear City, and is named for one of the Valley’s earliest ranching families.  Mostly level, and bordering Baldwin Lake on the north, in the early days the meadow-like area was popular for cattle and livestock grazing, and evidence of that still exists today.

“Upper” Shay Meadow boasts a quiet neighborhood of both family homes and vacation properties, with mostly medium-size homes.  Like anywhere in Big Bear the home styles are varied, including everything from Dutch Gambrels to ranch-style and two-story plans.

Upper Shay is a popular address for full-time living, with easy access, close proximity to State Hwy 38, and views of the mountains and meadow.  In addition, this area tends to receive less snowfall than the western part of the Valley, and offers a great sunny exposure

Lower Shay Meadow has sections of acreage parcels, and is zoned for horses and livestock, and as such, is a high-demand location for the equestrian set.  Homes along Shay Road, East Big Bear Blvd. and Palomino Road could aptly be called “ranches,” with custom homes on 1/2 to 6 acres, with horse facilities on-site.

The southeastern end of Shay Meadow is also host to the newer development, Sky Valley Ranch, an area of custom homes on level lots, with underground utilities and nice mountain views.

Shay Meadow is also popular with horse-owners because of its easy access to the miles of riding trails and open space found in and around Baldwin Lake, and the National Forest to the far east.  It is also host to the original “Vaquero’s Arena,” where local riding clubs host a variety of equestrian events including gymkanas and roping events.

Home styles in the equestrian area vary from expansive single-level ranch-styles, to full-log, upscale variations on Farmhouse style, and other custom designs.
