About La Terre Properties LLC, c/o J Evered, Manager
In early 2012, we stood on the deck of what would become Birch Bear and looked at the 180 degree unobstructed view of the slopes, the Lake, golf course and the whole valley in front of us. It was breathtaking and the most magnificent view in Big Bear. It needed extensive remodeling; we started over, preserving the fantastic views and 7 months later, Birch Bear Lodge was open for guests. We hope you can come enjoy this paradise on the mountaintop!

Why La Terre Properties LLC, c/o J Evered, Manager chose Moonridge
Each year we came to Big Bear to enjoy the mountain air, hike the trails, and enjoy the environment. We found a home that needed a lot of TLC, but the view was worth saving. A lot of hard work followed, a lot of fun and a lot of pride in this fantastic Lodge. Some say Birch Bear has the 'best view in Big Bear' for its 180 degree views of the ski resorts, golf course and the top to bottom, including the Spa with color changing LED lights and waterfall, its ready for visitors!
What makes this Lodge unique
View, view, privacy and views! From pre-dawn sunrise of pink sky, mist covering the Lake like a cotton blanket, clearing to sunny blues skies over glistening snow on Bear Mountain. Slopes with skiers so close you feel you can count them, to the soft white lights winding down the night ski slopes on Snow Summit, to the quiet pines... There is no place like Birch Bear.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Loved our Stay at Birch Bear Lodge
Amazing stay at Birch Bear Lodge! The cabin is beautiful and very well maintained. Super close to Bear Mountain/Snow Summit and the owner is super attentive and helpful with any questions you have along the way. Example - we had some trouble getting up the driveway when we arrived (most likely due to our inexperience with the snow & ice ) and the Jacline gave us a great suggestion of parking the cars as far up as they would go as long as they weren't on the street. Worked like a charm! Would definitely stay here again. Top-notch property, top-notch owner!
We love to hear what a fantastic time you had at Birch Bear. With all the amenities, super nice accommodations and incredible views, we think there's no place like Birch Bear and excellent value as well. Come back and visit again soon! Loved having all of you at the Lodge!
This place has it all!
We loved our two-day stay at Birch Bear! This place had it all. Plenty of room for all our guests, great views of the mountainside, a cozy living space, comfortable sleeping arrangments a fun game room with its own bathroom and fireplace. And to top it off a beautiful outdoor jacuzzi tub. We even saw a shooting star while sitting in the tub! Can't beat this place or its proximity to Bear Mountain Resort. Jacline was super helpful and thorough with check-in and out procedures. We can't wait to stay here again!
Comfortable, Beautiful, and Charming!!!
I stayed here in January for a trip with family and friends up to Big Bear. The property was beautiful and it comfortably fit my party. Jacline was very accommodating and made sure that all my needs were taken care of. Will come back! Thank you!
Not so great!
The place itself is ok, although a little dusty. The views are great; however, there are a couple if issues.
First, as soon as we checked in, I noticed some mice poop in the main house. I also found a mice trap in the heater closet and some mice poop around it as well. Contacted the owner and was told that they will send a pest control to clean it up. Well, guess what, no one showed up to check or to clean during our 4 days stay. Very disappointing. After all, the owner didn't even apologize!
Second, none of the main house bathroom locks worked and it was, pretty much, impossible to get any kind of privacy while in a bathroom. Super inconvenient with multiple families staying in!
The game room was not very clean, with some food left overs found on the floor and dirty socks stuffed under the furniture. There is no TV in the game room! So, if you want to hang out with your friends while watching a game - you CAN'T!!!
The driveway gets tricky during the winter time with a pretty narrow entrance and fairly big slope. Make sure you have an all-wheel drive and chains during your winter stay when there is snow.
I gave two stars just because of the views.
Great Place to Stay!
We arrived to the house and it was pretty amazing. Very cozy, and you really feel like your at home. Slept 5 of us no problem. There is an extra game room on top of the garage, that can sleep another two. There is, however, a long narrow driveway that is kind of hard to get in and out of, and I slipped walking down the driveway. But, we really liked it, and the kids loved it! Very private. We even built a snow man.
If I had to improve one thing, it would be how to play games on the tv in the living room. The kids brought a nintendo switch with them, and we couldn't play it on the tv because one of the inputs wasn't working. Other than that, it was a great stay, and would recommend it to anyone!
Would have given 5 stars except the living room tv’s hdmi cable didn’t work and so the kids’ couldn’t play their video games.
We're so glad you had a fantastic time at Birch Birch, with fantastic views, hot tub, pool table, pingpong, extended cable TV and wireless Wifi. We apologize for the inconvenience with the input issue and thank you for letting us know! Please visit the Lodge again soon - spring and summer are great too when al fresco dining isn't so snowy!
Big Bear Lake is a year round sport, relaxation and recreation spot. Snow sports in winter, fantastic hiking and mountain biking in spring and summer, walking, Octoberfest and lots of area activities in Fall. Great for friends and family reunions, or quietly recharging your batteries. Don't miss the Zipline!
