Whispering Forest Area Overview

Whispering Forest Real Estate, Rahill Real Estate Group

Many of the homes in Whispering Forest back to National Forest.

A gentle slope of the national forest borders this area to the north and gives it a mountain forest atmosphere. The south end is flat. Streets, some of them a bit curvy, are laid out well and easy to find your way around. This is an established neighborhood with many full time residents and a friendly feel.  Whispering Forest real estate is beautiful and accessible.

  • Friendly neighborhood feel
  • National Forest nearby
  • Sunny side of the valley
  • Mountain feel with only gentle slopes
  • Views of mountains and ski resorts across the valley
  • Views of Gold Mountain to the north
  • The Whispering Forest area includes the sub-area of General Whispering Forest

Natural Surroundings

The seasonal waterway/gully running to the west serves wildlife seeking a path to the lake. The San Bernardino National Forest borders on the west and north and Gold Mountain sits to the northeast. Jeffrey pine and juniper trees provide shade and natural habitats throughout the area.

The east end of the Stanfield Marsh Bird Sanctuary (Baker Pond) runs along Division, a short distance to the southeast. The sanctuary has ducks, coots and shorebirds, such as the Great Blue Heron, year-round, as well as large groups of white pelicans, Canada geese and other migrating birds that make Big Bear Lake a stopover between their northern nesting areas and the Salton Sea during the spring and fall. It is also a great place to see turkey vultures, sometimes in large flocks, as well as bald eagles.
