Moonridge house description

GETAWAY SKI LODGE. Forest Location! Hike or Bike or Ski from your own back yard.

5 Bedrooms - accommodates up to 12 Guests including children - 10 adults total.
FALL: Sept. October & first 2 weeks of November - Book 2 nights Online and receive an additional 3rd night FREE (until Nov. 15th).
WINTER SKI SEASON: Ski-out when it snows or walk approx. a 100 yards to the slopes. It’s a Ski Lodge next to the slopes and sled runs! When it snows you can walk to all kinds of sled runs – from gentle runs in the back yard for the little ones to steep runs a few steps away. We provide an assortment of sleds (10) for your use. This upscale, Log-style home is located next to a major ski resort, on the edge of the National Forest, and is surrounded by trees to ensure privacy & tranquility.
Because the home is located approx.100 yards from the beginner run of Bear Mountain Ski Resort there are no parking hassles, no cramming into the ski resort shuttle, no waiting for the 'sleepy-head' and the kids can walk home for lunch. If you bring grandma and grandpa they won’t feel left out because they can sit in the living room and watch the skiers and ski lift chairs going by through the trees. Level driveway for easy parking when its icy. Even though its close to the ski resort the home is relatively sound-proof, so the snow guns won’t keep you awake.
The Getaway is a log-style, 5-Bedroom (the 5th bedroom is tiny) Vacation Home nestled on approx. a quarter of an acre in a spectacular forest setting with fantastic views of Bear Mountain Resort, the surrounding mountains and the National Forest beyond. It offers high-speed Internet, wireless Internet, outdoor Spa, and minutes from the lake, Village and supermarkets. You can just chill-out and relax on the upper deck or take a vigorous hike or relaxing stroll starting from your own back yard. The kids will love playing and sledding in the huge back yard.
Enjoy a scenic walk with the family from your doorstep to the nearby Big Bear Alpine Zoo (home of the famous Grizzly Bears) and in the Summer you can enjoy a round of golf at the nearby Big Bear Golf Course. Mountain Bike from the property into the forest.
The Getaway is a short 4 to 5-minute drive to the Lake and the East Boat Ramp, located on the north shore, just west of the Stanfield Cut-off (1/2 block east of Vons). The East Boat Ramp is a public launch ramp for boats, jet skis, kayaks etc., a great family picnic area and the Alpine Pedal Path (a must-see 3.5 mile easy walk that meanders along the lake, across green meadows and through the forest).
Book early for the Ski Season as this home is very popular.
OUTDOORS: From the upper deck you really feel like you are in the forest; the panoramic views of the mountains will invite you to relax and read a good book (we have books). Dine or sip a glass of wine while enjoying the view from the glass and metal Italian-style outdoor bar. There is also a glass dining table & propane BBQ so this is the perfect place for guests to BBQ, dine outside and make the most of the fresh, clean mountain weather.
The lower deck verandah features a glass outdoor table, chairs, umbrella and aqua granite style SPA to relax in after a day on the slopes.
INDOORS: Every room opens up to views of the Pine tree-clad Mountains - the home is light & airy with lots of glass doors & skylights.
• The Great Room has a U-shaped sofa, a 42' HDTV, a stone fireplace, and the double French Doors open onto the deck giving the room an open feeling with great views of the forest and Bear Mountain ski runs.
