Why Base Camp? AND ....What makes Lake Arrowhead the perfect Base Camp?
Years ago I remember reading an article from on outdoor magazine about what different versions of "home" might look like. Hours of scouring the net, and I haven't found the article, but what I read I really connected with. The gist is that for some people, their home is a landing zone between adventures, and for others their home is their castle.
As an outdoorsy person, I personally connected with the idea that Home is a Base Camp. We love to hike, camp, travel, ski, climb, and be outdoors as a family lifestyle. For us, our value lies mostly in experiences. But the bigger picture that I walked away with, is the idea that the idea of "Home" is distinct and individual, and often comes down to what we value.
In a home, some things people might value are: the profitability, the location, the backyard, the security, the accessibility to the lake, or maybe the desire to find a space for multiple generations to enjoy. Others might value the opportunity to be in the outdoors, the accessibility, and the amenities. The good news is that there are no wrong answers here.
There are so many individual questions that play into finding the right space, and that's where I got the idea of Home being a Base Camp. For us, Lake Arrowhead is the perfect base camp due to it's easy access to trails, lake life, climbing, and snow fun family adventures. I know that there is no where I would rather be.
Translating these thoughts to real estate and helping others: I am thankful to be able to help people find their space- and identify what they truly value in a space and a place.
