Area Overview

Except for near downtown, the whole area has mountainous terrain with narrow, windy roads. Combined with the unique, individualized home styles, it makes every street and neighborhood here quite different.

  • Lake, mountain and forest views
  • Totally unique homes of all shapes, styles and sizes interspersed throughout
  • Old-fashioned, rural downtown
  • Forest and homes merge together
  • Lots of terrain change
  • Set into natural surroundings
  • Natural Surroundings

The downtown area sits beside peaceful Grout Bay which is fed by major tributary Deer Creek. The roads all meander up from there. Mountain rugged terrain sets the stage for homes built on slopes and narrow, windy, sometimes steep roads. The beautiful sun melts the sometimes heavy winter snow in record time. Several tall peaks provide the natural backdrop—Gray’s Peak, Butler Peak and Bertha Peak.

The forest background provides habitat for wildlife from squirrels (including the San Bernardino flying squirrel), rabbits, coyotes, hawks and hummingbirds to beautiful manzanita bush and wildflowers of all colors. Many tall Jeffrey pine and other trees provide shade, animal habitat and a protective sense of nature overseeing the area.

Etcetera

The roads are somewhat illogically laid out, so it might be good to take a map on the back roads if you do not have a navigational system.
