Many of my clients ask about the Moonridge area. Moonridge is a neighborhood that has many benefits for people that want to own a home in a Alpine environment and lots of activities near by.

With the mountain terrain with lots of pine, oak and spruce trees it is one of the best places to get away from the city and enjoy the fresh mountain air. Many of the homes in Moonridge have views of Big Bear Lake and  Bear Mountain .

 

Big Bear Lake

Bear Mountain offers snow boarding and skiing in the winter, and Golf in the summer months.

Since Bear Mountain and Snow Summit are both close, Moonridge is also a great area for homes that can be used as vacation rentals. Many buyers choose to block out periods for personal use, and then allow vacation rentals during the times that they are unable to occupy the home. This allows for income to offset the costs of owning a second home.

 

There are also many National Forest access points in the Moonridge area.

Some of the access points are:

  • Top of Club View Road / 2N10 forest service road.
  • Clubview Road just pass Willow.
  • South End of Ridgecrest.
  • End of Sand Canyon Road.
  • Top of Yosemite.
  • End of Travertine.
  • End of Villa Grove.
Mountain Biking, hiking and Snow Shoeing are convenient from these locations and most every location in Moonridge. Although upper Moonridge feels remote, the shopping areas and Blvd. are less than a 3 mile drive.
The snow removal for upper Moonridge over the past 20 years that I have lived here has been very thorough. I recommend that you be prepared and carry chains, but if you have 4 wheel drive or all wheel drive with snow tires, most roads will be accessible without installing chains.

Boating and fishing are also popular past times in Big Bear during the summer months. Big Bear Lake has 2 public boat ramps along North Shore that are a short drive from the Moonridge area.

Moonridge is the perfect location for buyers that are looking for 4 seasons of fun in the San Bernardino Mountains.
