About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

You will not find a better location in the Moonridge/Big Bear area. This cabin is surrounded by pines and oaks on a quiet cul-de-sac less than 100 yards to slopes of Bear Mountain. Yes, wake up and walk right on to the slopes and ski down to the lifts or in the summer go hike Bear Mountain. No need to waste time loading up your car with gear and then spending the $20 on parking. We are closer to the slopes than the parking lots at either Bear or Summit.

In addition we have a great sledding run out back for all ages. Teenagers will have a blast on it.

A truly wonderful getaway for families and friends looking to enjoy Big Bear and the great outdoors. Whether you enjoy snowboarding or skiing, walking or hiking, golfing, or a visit to the zoo(Kids will love it), all are nearby.

Three bedroom, one and half bath plus large deck with new barbecue, internet access, fireplace, Cable with all movie channels, DVD player, and a full kitchen including new Frigidaire Gallery series Gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, blender, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, pots/pans, and more! We have two premium Queen Pillowtop mattresses for your sleeping comfort plus two Twin beds that can be combined to create a King bed for the kids. Real Wood burning fireplace. We just replaced the carpet in 2017 and had laminate flooring put in on the first floor to help keep dust and allergens to a minimum. Brand new Dual Pane windows help keep the cold out and the warm in. New 3 pc leather sofa, loveseat, and recliner

MOONRIDGE is the most sought after winter location in Big Bear. We get more snow than Big Bear Lake and the snow lasts longer. Located next to Bear Mountain and Snow Summit Ski Resorts, Moonridge provides you the mountain getaway you are asking for. We are just a few minutes to the Big Bear downtown, lake, shopping, restaurants, and play areas.

PLEASE CHECK MY CALENDAR, I KEEP IT UP TO DATE. In addition my rates are posted. We will book every weekend the slopes are open. If you have questions please call me directly. Thanks

Why Daryl chose Moonridge

We began going to Big Bear in the Mid 1990's. Generally driving up for the day only. It quickly became a dream to buy a 2nd home in the area. We used this cabin several times as rental from a friend and loved the quiet street, sledding run out back and the ability to walk right on to the Slopes. A few years later we found out they were going to sell the cabin and we quickly purchased it. When we purchased the cabin in 2005 it was as if we purchased this home right out of 1975 the year it was built and furnished. The original dining room table was a formica top with yellow floral print. You will still see a few pieces of the original floral print plates and bowls around. The yellow formica counters came complete with mustard appliances. Realizing we needed to update some of this stuff, we went out and purchased a rustic table built locally by a Big Bear craftsman. Purchased two premium mattresses to ensure a good night sleep. The couch and TV's soon were switched out as well. We removed the turntable cassette player. Most recent addition were the new appliances, we hated to see the mustard yellow ones go. We removed the 1970's wood paneling and sadly began switching out the "classic shag" carpet in the family room for wood flooring and upstairs with new carpet. We have fun with our cabin and invite all others to do the same.

What makes this cabin unique

Our location is 2nd to none. You will love the privacy and proximity to the slopes of Bear mountain and just a 1/4 mile to the zoo and golf, come enjoy our mountain getaway deep in Moonridge. Walk right on to the slopes in the Winter or hike them in the Summer. Quick access to the National Forest and the numerous trails.

Save the $20 on parking fees, we are closer to the slopes than the parking lots at either Bear or Snow Summit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great trip and still think your place is the most geographically desirable of any we have rented. I just wanted to let you know the boys loved it again and we will be back.

Have a great Holiday.

Great location to ski lifts

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this 3 bedroom home over a weekend stay. Very cozy and close to ski lifts. I would recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle if high snow conditions as the drive way is steep. Can fit 3 cars comfortably. No parking allowed on the street.

perfect cozy cabin for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was wonderful. Clean, plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. The beds were comfortable and it was small and intimate without being crowded. I took my family of six (2 adult boys and 2 little ones) and we had plenty of room. My kids loved that they could walk out back and sled all day. Very close to all the ski resorts. Had the best time ever and would definitely come back and rent from Daryl. He was very helpful and informative.

Peaceful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The cabin was just as pictured. Darrell was very helpful in preparation, answering all our questions.

The kitchen had everything we needed. Good thing since we enjoyed cooking every day!

Our favorite place was the roomy deck. We spent much of our time reading out there, barbecuing and watching the Blue Jays and squirrels. The view was lovely! So many trees to enjoy.....

The Wi-Fi connection was nice and strong and the TVs worked well.

Daryl let us know where to hike within walking distance of the cabin. We loved doing that almost every day!

It was a short drive to the lake & village.

We came home feeling refreshed & renewed. Just what we needed.

Thanks so much!
