The area known as “Eagle Point” is a peninsula of land extending into Big Bear Lake on its south shore, located roughly between Snow Summit and the eastern business district on Big Bear Blvd.
Named for the long-standing nickname for the piece of land, and the Bald Eagles that return to the end of “the point” every winter, Eagle Point was originally subdivided into homesites in the 1960’s by Bear Valley Mutual Water Company, with development of the second through fourth phases continuing into the 1970’s. It quickly became “the” preferred location for custom full-time and vacation homes built during that period, with homes built by some of Big Bear’s most renowned contractors. If you drive to the end of the point between December and April, you might just catch a glimpse of “George and Gracie,” the pair of Bald Eagles that return every year to roost in the same two dead pine trees.
Eagle Point offers level access, treed parcels with towering Ponderosa pines, and quiet meandering streets. The exterior parcels on the outside perimeter of “the point” are lakefront, affording stunning lake and mountain views, and dock rights allowing a private boat dock out your back door. The interior parcels are all within walking distance to the lake.
Home styles in Eagle Point are varied – from the two original vintage 1900’s cabins still located at the tip of the point, to modern masterpieces of design. Ranch styles, chalets, log-style, Victorian and contemporary homes all co-exist within the neighborhood. Eagle Point is in the City Of Big Bear Lake and is serviced by all City utilities.
Eagle Point’s great central location makes it a popular location for both vacation and full-time living, just minutes from shopping, The Village, both winter resorts, and the lake and marinas. Many properties are within walking distance to Meadow Park and the Swim Beach.
