The Importance of a Vacation


by Jim Gordon, Buyers agent for The  Bob Angilella Team

Our busy world forces us to constantly be “on”. Between cell phones and email and texting, there never seems to be a time to just take a deep breath and relax with no distractions. Enter the enchanting mountain lake community of  Big Bear Lake. Located a short 1-2.5 hours away by car from most of Orange, LA and San Diego counties, you go “up the hill” and you turn off your daily life, whether it be for a day or two or even longer.  While known as a winter getaway for the skiing and snowboarding, Big Bear Lake comes alive in the summer, with outdoor activities galore. Summer temperatures rarely get above 82 and the chilly nights, even in the heat of the summer, mean lots of marshmallows over campfires.

 But a quick getaway to Big Bear Lake often leads to falling in love with the fresh air and sunshine, even when it’s the “June Gloom” down the hill. That’s when the true pleasure of Big Bear Lake comes to light: a second home. Whether a simple cabin in the pines starting at around 80K in the Sugarloaf area to a fabulous lake front home, with prices up to $2.5 million, you’re sure to find a family getaway spot perfect for making four season memories!

 One benefit of buying in a community within driving distance of over 15 million people: the opportunity to use your home for Short Term Vacation Rentals. Many second home owners offset the costs of maintaining their vacation home by renting it when they are not using it. Or keep it all for yourself – your dream getaway in the sky!

Either way, give the Bob Angilella Team a call at (909) 878-5522 and they can explain the benefits of vacation home ownership in Big Bear Lake. 

Thank you,
