About the owner: My husband, Josh, and I are from the Chicago suburbs. Living in Los Angeles for the last 12 years, we love to travel, enjoy the outdoors, play games with friends, and enjoy time with our two small dogs, Bagel & Bella. Why We Chose Ridgecrest Lodge: Josh and I recently purchased this home as a vacation home and rental! We love the location - minutes away from Bear Mountain! We enjoy skiing and tubing all winter and look forward to spending spring and summer on the lake. We chose this home because of it's location, great family friendly hang-out space, ability to host a big party (we can't wait to bring up our large families), killer deck with views of the lake and slopes, and proximity to town as well. This home has a cozy cabin feel with modern amenities.
