Moonridge cabin description

The Space

Twin Pines Cabin is a charming wood-paneled cabin with all the comforts of home. Recently remodeled exterior and newly furnished interior is comfortably equipped for a relaxing mountain getaway. Well-equipped kitchen comes with everything you’ll need to indulge your culinary desires. Twin Pines Cabin is perfectly located for skiing, snowboarding, golfing or long hikes in the woods as all are within walking distance to the cabin. In the convenient Lower Moonridge area of Big Bear, you will find yourself mere minutes from the excitement of The Village shops and restaurants yet nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood one block from the national forest and less than half a mile from Bear Mountain ski resort.

The cozy living room is a great place for the family to gather and relax in front of a roaring fireplace. The view of our twin pines through the front glass door makes you feel as though the cabin is nestled in the heart of the forest.

The exterior boasts a large front deck and convenient LEVEL two car drive-up parking. No scary traveling up and down icy roads or climbing up long flights of steps!

Guest Access

Guests will have access to a fully stocked kitchen with plenty of herbs and spices, pots, pans, bakeware, appliances and full-sized stove and refrigerator. Breakfast can be waffles made with our waffle iron...dinner can be a hearty stew made with our family-sized crockpot.

Love to play darts or play video games? The loft features a dart board and a Wii gaming system with several video games in stock for your family to enjoy.

Downstairs in the living room, you'll find several games, cards and puzzles to wile away the hours when all you want to do is stay indoors and be cozy near the fire.

Plug your cell phone or iPod into the speaker on the shelf beside the DVD and fill the cabin with your favorite tunes while you connect to our wireless internet on your tablet or laptop and surf the web.

Snuggle down in the evenings with some popcorn and watch streaming movies on either Netflix or Hulu+. Make a quick run to the nearby Redbox and rent a movie to play in our Blu Ray DVD player.

Not in the mood for a movie? Take one of our folding chairs out to the deck with one of our down lap blankets and listen to the wolves howl and see the stars fill the sky.

Interaction with Guests

We will ensure that all your needs are addressed via email prior to your arrival. Once you arrive, we are only a phone call away!

The Neighborhood

“Lower Moonridge” is the portion of the Moonridge area that is situated between Moonridge Road and Bear Mountain ski resort, backing to the National Forest on the south. It’s a more level area than other parts of Moonridge, and is within walking distance to skiing, golf, and hiking trails.

A portion of Lower Moonridge was one of the first to be subdivided in the area, and offers compact-size lots with true mountain cabins. Views in this area are mainly neighborhood and trees, and the area is densely populated with gorgeous pines and oaks.

Lower Moonridge offers a great mountain feel with easy access, and as such is a popular location for vacation cabins and vacation rentals. Full-time residences in the area range from small to medium in size, with the eclectic mix of styles that Moonridge is famous for. Cute log-faced cabins share the block with vintage charmers, Victorians, Gambrels and mountain style designs.

Bear Mountain ski resort, the Bear Mountain golf course, and Big Bear Alpine Zoo are all just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from Lower Moonridge, or walk to the Bear Mtn/Snow Summit shuttle. The small business district in lower Moonridge offers select professional services, ski and board rental shops, and one of Big Bear’s favorite deli’s!

The area is just minutes by car to Snow Summit, the lake and marinas, supermarkets and banking and the downtown Village.

Getting around

During ski season, free shuttle service to Snow Summit is available and just a two-minute drive from the cabin.

Mountain Area Regional Transit Authority (MARTA) provides local and Dial-a-Ride bus service to the Big Bear Valley, Running Springs, Lake Arrowhead, Crestline and Off-the-Mountain service to San Bernardino

Other Things to Note

THIRD NIGHT FREE! If guests book any two-night stay with us, we will throw in the third night free! (TERMS: Offer applies only to consecutive nights and only if available (no prior reservation in place). Lowest priced night of the stay will be deducted. Offer does not apply to stays longer than 6 days when discounted weekly/monthly rates apply. If interested, ask us for the free third night deal and we will provide you with a modified quote).

What does this mean for you? It means that you won't need to rush out of the cabin on the morning of the third day and can leave either later in the day at your convenience, or extend your stay one more night and leave the following morning.

It's just our way of saying THANK YOU for choosing Twin Pines Cabin. We know you have a choice in Big Bear, and we appreciate you choosing us!

Rates

Our nightly rates and cleaning fee are firm and non-negotiable. We believe you'll find that our rates, especially for the Moonridge area, are among the most reasonable rates in Big Bear. Our cleaning fee pays for one of Big Bear's highest-rated cleaning service and includes cabin prep services that go beyond just washing linens and vacuuming. We ask that you please refrain from asking for reductions in our rates and fees.

House Rules

No pets and no smoking, please--NO exceptions. While we personally love pets, we enforce this rule out of respect to our guests with pet allergies.

Sleeps 4-6. Please do not ask us to exceed occupancy limits as we are bound by the city of Big Bear code compliance ordinance.

Twin Pines Cabin is a family-friendly cabin in a peaceful residential neighborhood. Because we respect and value our neighbors, we will not rent to vacationing students or singles under 25 years of age unless accompanied by a guardian or parent over the age of 25.

Please respect our neighbors and refrain from unlawful activities, boisterous or rowdy behavior.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: Born and raised in California, we both love the variety and beauty that our home state has to offer. Adrian grew up in Redwood City on the San Francisco peninsula and Karen grew up in the South Bay area of San Diego. We met while students at SDSU and married a year later. Our primary home is in Escondido, CA where we've raised two beautiful children who attend our local middle and high schools. Adrian works at the Union Tribune newspaper as a city editor, Karen works at Illumina as a Planner. We stay busy with work, kids, sports, Sea Cadets (a youth program that our son belongs to), and our beloved cabin.

              Why the Owner Chose Moonridge:
              Ten years ago we began visiting the Big Bear area with family friends and fell in love with the area. Friendly locals, beautiful surroundings and such a close getaway, yet feels like a complete escape. When the opportunity arose to purchase here, we grabbed it and have loved every minute of home ownership here. We love our cabin and love sharing it with others. We hope you'll spend a few days at Twin Pines Cabin and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings as we do.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Conveniently located in the 'Lower Moonridge' area of Big Bear. You're just steps away from the national forest, skiing, snowboarding, golf, shopping, dining and even a zoo! Come see what our reviewers are saying about the fabulous location and comfortable accommodations.
