Property description

More than 300 families have enjoyed our Moonridge Mountain Retreat (aka Arlene's) throughout the years. Whether it's a special occasion like an engagement, honeymoon, birthday or holiday you're celebrating, you'll always remember your stay in the quiet romantic surroundings of our personal home. Ideally situated in Upper Moonridge, you'll enjoy the four seasons and all that Big Bear Lake has to offer. There's plenty of snow in the Winter as you watch the skiers racing down Geronimo in the distance at Bear Mountain from our upper deck. The Oak Trees, among the Pines, surrounding the property turn a vibrant yellow, orange and red in late October throughout November. Both full bathrooms are modern with custom tile, and Shower Tower in the Master Bath. Cooking couldn't be easier in the recently remodeled kitchen with almost every conceivable gadget and full compliment of spices. Entertainment buffs will appreciate the High Definition Television, Movie Collection, Surround Sound, & WiFi.


From Our Guest Book: Testimonials from Guests: As always, had an awesome time. Love the upgrades. Best time of the week, and highly recommend it, two hour boat ride around Big Bear Lake. Plenty of hiking trails.

We had a wonderful time at your cabin. Our two kids, Noah ( Age 8) and Graci (Age 6) learned how to snowboard and ski. Your cabin was a great home away from home. We will definitely be back for a visit!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: We purchased our Moonridge Mountain home in Big Bear Lake while living in Southern California--we thought, what a wonderful way to get away from the smog and traffic of Los Angeles and it was only a couple of hours away! That was 26 years ago and we've never looked back. During the first few years of ownership we spent almost every weekend and most holidays 'at the cabin.' You'll see the many personal photos throughout our home during the different seasons. In 1991 we had a wonderful business opportunity which would take us to Arizona. That's when we decided to sell the cabin and look for something closer to our new home in Arizona. Well, we quickly found out that what we had in Big Bear Lake couldn't be duplicated to our satisfaction in Arizona--so we pulled up the for sale sign and decided to keep our mountain retreat and rent our home to those we knew and through our own promotional efforts and word of mouth when we were not staying there. Since the early 1990's more than 300 familes have rented our home for weekend getaways and in many cases for an entire month to escape the desert heat or to enjoy the excellent skiing in the winter. We hope you enjoy your stay and return often--whether it is for a couple of days, a week, a month, a special occasion or a holiday.

Why the Owner Chose Moonridge:
Moonridge, as you wil quickly find out, is one of the premier locations in Big Bear Lake. At 7,350' above sea level we enjoy crisp cool nights and warm afternoons throughout the spring, summer and fall. During the winter we get plenty of snow and are about 10-12 minutes from the ski resorts of Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. The Village and the Lake and a multitude of restaurants and shops are about 15 minutes away--two major grocery stores (Von's & Stater Brothers) are 10 minutes from the cabin.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
As our Moonridge Mountain Retreat is our second home we've made it as comfortable as possible for our own visits. A completely remodeled kitchen is a delight when preparing meals. The 68-jet spa is most relaxing after a day of hiking, skiing, biking or boating. And, no home would be complete without the convenience of 3 HDTVs, WiFi, a 1920s Upright Piano and a roaring fire in the wood burning fireplace.
