Project Description

Camp Bear Pen

Camp Bear Pen is a fun place for your family to spend your time in Highlands. This home has that wonderful ‘Old Highlands’ feel with pine paneled walls, large gathering spaces, and screened porch. Mostly all on one level, you enter onto a screened porch then into the great room- large open kitchen, dining area, gas log fireplace, large flat-screen TV, and entrance to the covered porch to catch some sunset hues through the trees (great winter view). The kitchen has Corian countertops, all stainless steel appliances, and is set for cooking- just bring the cook! You can sit on the screened porch and watch the children play in the backyard where there’s plenty of stomping around room,  and a picnic table. In the evenings, you can join them sitting around the fire pit while telling ghost stories and enjoying S’mores. There’s an older ‘grilling station’ with a charcoal grill. The front yard is flatter and more suitable for lawn games, while the backyard has rolling terrain with more perennial flowers and moss. There are hiking trails nearby, and you may see a bear walking around as well.
Great floor plan for two families with split floor plan. One side has the Mst. BR with a king bed and sleeper sofa, and private bath. The opposite wing has two bedrooms and a full bath with a walk-in shower. BR#2 has a King bed, flat screen, DVD player and sitting area. The 3rd BR has 2 twins. The guest wing can all be closed off for more privacy.

There is a garage and a shared driveway* with one neighbor.  The laundry area is there as well as the third bathroom.

(The driveway is paved, but Big Bear Pen Road is a dirt/gravel road. Although it is maintained regularly, there are dips and ruts due to rain)

Smooth relaxed enjoyable process of reservation and check-in. The house was lovely especially the porches and the Moss lawn. Not walking distance to downtown for most but only a short trip by car
