You’ve just won the lottery, or maybe a rich uncle has generously remembered you in his will.
You now have the means to live in any Big Bear neighborhood.
Where would you live?
Here’s my wish list and a few reasons why I’d choose to live there.
Boulder Bay Lake Front
This is a no-brainer. If you’ve ever walked through a Big Bear lake front home you know why they’re so great – location, location, location. Being able to walk out on your deck and jump in your boat for a lake cruise has to be the cat’s pajamas. And obviously the views can’t be beat.
Another thing I like about the Boulder Bay area is the fact that it’s mostly deep water and the shoreline doesn’t get as congested with weeds in summer like shallow lake areas. If you’re a fisherman like me you’ll appreciate that fact.
Perched on the foothills above the Big Bear village, the Ironwood neighborhood has a lot going for it. The area is known for its large lots and custom homes, amazing views of Big Bear Lake and the surrounding valley, and its proximity to shopping and dining. It’s walking distance to restaurants and backs up to the San Bernardino National Forest. This is also a great area for higher end vacation rentals.
I may be partial to some of the older, more established Big Bear neighborhoods but Castle Glen is an exception. It’s tucked away in the rolling hills next to the Stanfield Marsh Wildlife Preserve, just a few minutes away from Bear Mountain, Snow Summit, and Big Bear Lake. This prestigious neighborhood is known for its custom built homes and large lots. Even though it’s a newer development, it has the mountain look and feel that gives Big Bear its charm.
