We are excited to own a home in Big Bear Lake and to provide vacation experiences for our guests. Justin is the President of a small Pension firm and Cally cares for our daughter and son while working part time in Human Resources and coaching Track & Field.

Our kids are especially looking forward to the great sledding on the property.

Justin & Cally Bonestroo purchased this chalet in 2017

Why Justin & Cally Bonestroo chose Moonridge

We bought this lovely property for vacation rentals and personal use. We loved the location and house, the beautiful chalet is on a very pleasant street at a higher elevation (more snow!) and very near Bear Mountain Ski Area. It is close to everything, but also has a feel of quiet and seclusion. It has many pine trees around, and nice alpine views. It's a great place! Very serene and peaceful. Good for larger families and groups of friends.

What makes this chalet unique

Chalet sleeps 11 in 3 bedrooms (and bunk beds in the game room). Ideal for larger or multiple families. Very nice (large) living room for everybody to get together. Great location, near the slopes, zoo, golf course, and a short drive to the lake and village.

There is national forest hiking that is walking distance from the chalet. Just walk left from the house, go down Primrose, turn right, and keep going up the hill. Ask us for more specific directions, if needed. You can walk to ski from the house, by walking to the ski area Bear Mtn (two - three blocks to the trail to ski down to the lift. We also have a sledding area next to the home. You can walk around the beautiful, nicely treed, scenic street where you are, go to the zoo, golf, ski area, and to a National Park hiking trail. It's just a few blocks up the hill. The lake has many activities, and is just a short drive away.

Other trails are nearby. It is a very pretty area around the home, with many trees, and lots of peace and quiet. Not many cars go by on the street. There are many fun activities that you can do in the area we have listed. There is some activiity information in the chalet, and the local stores have more brochures.

Everything was great.

One suggestion is that one fan for each bedroom/room would be a good idea for summer

Beautiful GetAway

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful, amazing for the price and accommodating. Justin and Cally were available and responsive in a timely manner. The home was just as described and the photos still didn’t do it justice. We enjoyed the deck, made BBQ, and had fun using the many games provided. Definitely a great family vacation and we appreciated the baby proof efforts around the house to keep our little ones safe! Thanks for the memories!

Best location & has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning on going to big bear to snowboard or ski, this is the BEST location! LITERALLY seconds away from the mountain! The cabin was clean and had everything we needed from kitchenware, towels, movies, games, & you have enough room for everyone! LOTS OF PRIVACY with 3 levels! We snowboarded Friday and Saturday & came back to the cabin and watched the movie IT both nights. We even left the DVD for upcoming guests to enjoy the scare! Overall, this was the best cabin yet we've stayed at, made a lot of memories!
