Property description

As you pull up to the Cabin, you will see it is surrounded by greenery. That is, of course, if you pull up in Spring/Summer. Fall/Winter might be a different description. For now, it is spring and we are surrounded by lilacs, apple trees, cedars, cypress, pines, maples, & aspens and this is all in the front yard! There is a long driveway with ample parking, a brick patio with outdoor seating, and a screened in porch leading you to the front door. Once inside this 1940's gem, you will feel the rustic charm and warmth. Extra large living room with open stenciled beam ceiling, brick fireplace, and plenty of seating. The kitchen has a farmhouse sink, butcher block counters and an original O'Keefe & Merritt stove. Dining room is off of the kitchen and has an antique hutch and pantry. First bedroom is off of the living room and has a full size bed. There is a full bath and a 1/2 bath with laundry. Upstairs in the loft is the second bedroom with 2 twin beds. This cabin offers all of the comforts of home. It is walking distance to Moonridge Coffee, Shops and restaurants.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: We grew up going to Big Bear Lake as children to escape the city of Los Angeles craziness. I fell in love with it and knew I would always own a home here. Skiing is one of my passions and having a home here is a dream come true. I have other VRBO property's in Los Angeles, listing numbers 470124 & 488436, if you would like to read our reviews there. We love being able to share this special place with special people.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Moonridge:
This cabin is situated in a walking friendly neighborhood for all seasons. Sometimes you want to take a walk in the snow, many parts of Big Bear are steep windy roads. This area is flat and great for family walks. One can walk to coffee, shops and restaurants. It is also great for outdoor entertaining as there is plenty of usable yard space. The cabin itself has all of the character of 1940, while yet having all modern amenity's.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We bought this cabin as a fixer, that was bright blue and surrounded by chain link fence! It has come a long way! It is our home away from home when we want to get out of the City. We have fantastic neighbors, some of whom you may meet walking their dogs. My favorite room is the screened in porch. Lovely for all seasons!
