About four miles to the north of Big Bear Lake (San Bernardino County, California), a sprawling nature resort called Holcomb Valley Ranch has just come on the market for $12 million.

With 377 acres, it’s by far the largest property currently available in the mountain city. It’s also the priciest.

It is comprised of meadows, mountains, forests, and fields. The picturesque retreat has served a variety of functions throughout the years, including establishing a gold mining town, a cattle farm, and a camping area for the Boy Scouts of America, who bought the property in the 60s.

Today, it is used as a campsite and event venue for weddings, corporate retreats, and music festivals.

It’s being advertised as a development opportunity, and the ranch is approved for use as an outdoor resort with 37 buildings that cover approximately 14,000 square feet. The farm also has the approval to build 380 lots that could be used to house guest cabins and luxury tents.

The old ranch buildings and an abandoned sawmill constructed during mining days remain on the site. Modern structures include a 960-square-foot barn, a 1,400-square-foot commercial kitchen, a pavilion that covers 2,800 square feet, an outdoor pool, as well as archery, shotgun, and rifle ranges.

For camping, there are staff quarters, a lodge, and several cabins, along with facilities like a climbing wall, a zip line, and an outdoor amphitheater. The water well can produce 172,000 gallons of clear water each day, while the storage tank can store 100,000 more.

“It’s a great base camp for adventure,” said listing agent John Grant of Park Brokerage Inc. “Aside from its natural beauty, the property’s history adds to the unique character.”
