Baldwin Lake is one of the few neighborhoods in Big Bear that is not densily populated, is quiet and ideal for those who love being surrounded by nature. The Jackalope Lodge overlooks Baldwin Lake Ecological Reserve, which belongs to the state of California: an open plain covered with quartz pebbles interspersed between meadows and springs, that becomes a seasonal lake during certain times of the year. From the Lodge you also have views of Gold Mountain, the Big Bear Valley, Nelson Ridge, Onyx Peak, and the Ski Slopes! Behind the Lodge lies the San Bernardino National Forest with access to hiking, mt. biking and endless jeep trails.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
There is a short dirt road to get to the house from the main road. Although we often drive a Prius up the road, be prepared and have chains during the winter if you don't drive a 4x4. Rule of thumb: If chains are required to get to Big Bear via Hwy 18 or 38, you may need chains to get up the dirt road if it's been snowing.
We highly recommend that you take Hwy 38 up the hill via Mentone. The drive is less windy, more beautiful, has less traffic and is generally faster!
Although there is no wifi in the house, the flat screen TV has integrated Chromecast for streaming videos, netflix and movies via a mobile hotspot. Cell service is generally pretty good.+ More
