Skyforest Retreat

The Bay Shore Skyforest Retreat in the San Bernardino National Forest between Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear is perfect for a weekend get-away for you, your family, or small group. This beautiful three-story house offers a modern kitchen and living room on the main level. The lower level features a game room (pool table, television, stereo, card table) and sleeping quarters for eight. The upper-level dorm comfortably sleeps ten. The house is ideally suited for rest and relaxation. Nestled among pine and hardwood trees at an elevation of approximately 5,500 feet, the air is fresh and the stars are bright. From the outdoor decks, commanding views of neighboring mountains to the East, of coastal mountains to the South, and of the valleys in between add to the charm and beauty of the retreat. There is a beautiful fireplace and grill available. The kitchen is modern and has everything you need for a home away from home.

The location of the house is also perfect for local activities throughout the year in the nearby communities of Lake Arrowhead, Crestline, Running Springs, Blue Jay, and Big Bear. Winter sports, summer sports, and dining and shopping are just a stone’s throw away.
