Bear Loop Area Overview

Bear Loop in Big Bear City is one of the newer developments in the Big Bear Valley. It is a small neighborhood, set away from others, providing a quiet atmosphere. It’s on the northern shore of Baker Pond, a man-made pond that borders Stanfield Cutoff and Division drive.

  • Newer, modern homes
  • Stanfield Marsh Bird Sanctuary (Baker Pond) lakefront
  • Sunny side of the lake
  • Lake without the boating activities
  • Mostly manicured landscaping; small yards—easy for maintenance
  • Underground utilities, so no interruption of the views

This neighborhood was developed back in the late 1990s with well-maintained roads, undergrown utilities, and views of the ski slopes and mountains from a distance. The location is minutes away from the ski resorts, Big Bear Lake, and the Big Bear Village.


Several homes sit along the shoreline, which runs along Stanfield Marsh Bird Sanctuary. Newer landscaping provides for lots of sun, giving off warmth. There are many styles of homes in Bear Loop, including chalets, European, log-style, and craftsman. Both permanent and vacation homes are scattered throughout this neighborhood in Big Bear.

Bear Loop Natural Surroundings

The Stanfield Marsh Bird Sanctuary (also known as Baker Pond) runs along the shoreline to the south and the homes here have a great view of the island built to give water fowl a safe nesting site. The sanctuary has ducks, coots, and shorebirds, such as the Great Blue Heron, year-round. In the spring and fall, residents can get an awesome view of 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. It is also a great place to see turkey vultures, sometimes in large flocks, as well as bald eagles.

The neighborhood is set alongside a beautiful wet meadow habitat and a seasonal stream bed. Seasonal wildflowers can add to the view of both these special habitats.
