                                        We have been visiting Big Bear with 2 other families the past 6 years. Always searching for that "perfect cabin". Well, our search is over...we found our cabin!!! Paradise Pines Lodge is AMAZING!!!! Big bedrooms (each couple got their own room). The only 2 girls in the house ages 11 were so excited to get their own bedroom as well. The 5 boys were able to sleep in the double bunk beds room. The kitchen has everything you need. Large den to sit by the fire and watch tv or read. Separate laundry room, HUGE play room / game upstairs where the kids can be kids and have fun (barely saw the kids while inside...)! Nice relaxing hot tub. Big yard to play in the snow, run around and build snowmen! Walk across the street to the National Forest for sledding..super fun! Easy access to grocery stores, ski slopes, ski rental, town, etc... The icing on the cake was the 18" of snow we had. Would highly recommend this cabin for your stay in Big Bear!!!! Ron and Brad "SDSU Buds" are so organized, super friendly, accommodating and very professional home owners! PARADISE PINES LODGE is the place to stay!!!!! Thanks for such a memorable vacation...best trip to Big Bear yet!!! We will be back next February for sure!!!!

                                        I needed a big space in a great location and i struck gold with this place. We had a 2 day retreat for my company and we needed plenty of beds, a comfortable place to meet, a place to wind down and have some fun at breaks and a place that was in a good location/close to the village. Well we struck gold on all accounts. Not only did everything come together, but it was a pleasure working with one of the owners, Ron. He was very responsive and took great care of us. THis may become an annual tradition for us!

                                        We have been staying at Paradise Pines for about 7 years and it is always a wonderfull family reunion. Every year the kids and grand kids look forward to our annual trip. Right across the street is the national forest where we go hiking and slide down the mountain. We'll be there again next winter.

                                        Our family had a wonderful winter vacation at the cozy Paradise Pines Lodge. The cabin was spacious and contained all of the amenities we needed to have an enjoyable time. The game room and Jacuzzi were a big hit with the kids and they really enjoyed feeding the blue jays on the front porch every morning. We would definitely choose to stay at your cabin the next time we visit Big Bear.

                                        I chose this home based on the needs of the (3) families that stayed at the home. It was perfect logistically for our needs - the home met our expectations above and beyond. It was clean, had everything we needed, was so close to everything (within 3 min to the slopes, grocery store, etc). I have no doubt that should we make another trip to Big Bear with a group that this place will top the list. We had (5) kids total - the kids room was perfect for them as well as the game room upstairs. It was big for (3) families to get the privacy they need yet still be able to oversee the kids as needed. I think the title says it all "Kids Paradise" yet it was still nice enough for the parents/adults. Thank you for everything. We had a great trip.

                                        Talk about making family memories! My husband and I splurged and took the entire family up to Big Bear for Thanksgiving weekend. Who knew turkey tastes even better in the mountains. We had a ball-no snow but lots of Pictionary, charades and cards. The cabin was wonderful. With a couple of portacribs, all 18 of us were very comfortable. We loved the hikes in the Nat'l Forest across the street (loved the Christmas Tree there) and warming up in the hot tub. The game room kept the grandchildren very happy. The owners are proud of their lovely cabin and are so helpful. Brad called to check up on us while we were there. Our deposit was returned quickly. We would certainly rent from them again.

                                        This was my 2nd year spending Labor Day weekend at Paradise Pines. I bring 3 of my young nieces and share the cabin with 10 other adults. The cabin is so awesome. The location across from the hiking trail is perfect. I love the layout and feel very much at home there. Working with Ron and Brad is the best. They are both so kind and attentive. Even calling and offering additional suggestions of things and places to try and experience while up in Big Bear. It's got whatever you could need. We all are already looking forward to our next trip up! Love to do a Winter wonderland visit to experience this Paradise with snow and maybe even use the fireplaces!

                                        This cabin is one that is made for casualness and comfort. Over the years our family has stayed in many cabins in the Big Bear area and this one turned out to be one of the most comfortable for our family that we have had. The closeness to the North Shore boat landing was one of the things that made it nice for us as we had watercraft with us. There is plenty of parking available in the area and since the cabin borders the Nat'l Forest, there is practically no traffic on the street. All in all, a very enjoyable stay and the owners are great to deal with.

                                        I brought a group of 15 to this cabin and it surpassed all of my expectations! I knew it would be beautiful, but I was amazed with how comfortable and spacious it was. There are two living spaces, both with fireplaces. The kitchen is huge and there was plenty of space for everyone to sleep. This is a relaxing and beautiful cabin for rent. Brad even checked in during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. Some of us on this trip are already planning our next trip to stay in this home. We highly recommend it!!!

                                        Best Cabin I ever been. Great location and lots of spaces. I do not think any other Cabin come close to this one.

                                      Year Purchased: 2006

                                      About the owner: Brad & Ron are college buddies from San Diego State who bought this cabin to enjoy with each of their families. It is their pleasure to rent it to other families with similar interests and it helps with the affordability.

                                      Why the Owner Chose Moonridge:
                                      Before purchasing the cabin, we looked at 25 others. None offered the serenity, mountain vacation feeling and immediate proximity to Bear Mtn, Golf, Zoo, & Nat'l Forest where we love to Mountain Bike Ride, Sled, Hike and play.

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                                      You're dealing with honest, family oriented, responsible people who take a GREAT deal of Pride of Ownership in their Cabin. You will always find the cabin in incredible condition, as we visit the cabin regularly along with our Property Manager and Maintenance Personnel.
