About the property

Moonridge Manor - House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-11)


Moonridge Manor Retreat is our 3 bedroom, 2 bath sanctuary in the mountains.

Perched in a spectacular setting with gorgeous views of the ski slopes, the Manor is a stone's throw from Bear Mountain Resort skiing, the Big Bear Alpine Zoo, and Moonridge Golf Course. The local shuttle bus stops less than half a block away every half hour to take you all over the Big Bear area and back for $3 a ride.

Large shopping centers with Walgreens, Kmart, Vons and Stater Bros are a pleasant one mile walk away. Tubing slopes on Big Bear Blvd are less than 2 miles at Division St. and another nearby the Village. You won't need to pay for parking at Bear Mountain. Just a 10 minute walk up to Bear Mountain Skiing and you can get a locker for your equipment.

Moonridge Manor is the perfect 'base-camp' for all your Big Bear adventures. We're sure it will provide you, your family and friends an invigorating sanctuary for your get-away.

Contact us if you have any questions.

Be well,

Dennis & Jean

About Dennis Erlich

(picture: Jean and I at Bear Mountain)

I have been a minister since the late '60s as well as a writer/producer for KTLA TV, the City of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. Jean was a Newsreader on Chinese TV, among other things.

You will feel comfortably at home, perched in a spectacular mountain wonderland at Moonridge Manor. We hope it can be your special sanctuary, as it has been for us.

See you soon!

Dennis & Jean

Dennis Erlich purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Dennis Erlich chose Moonridge

My ministry needed a retreat for those requiring sanctuary during recovery. Big Bear Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Southern California. Moonridge Manor is in the perfect location for skiing, snowboarding, fishing and boating.

The house has an incredible view of Bear Mountain skiing. It has tons of parking, plenty of windows and even closets. It was the only one of the houses we shopped, that had these features.

You will love it too!

What makes this cabin unique

Parking for RVs, boats or a half a dozen cars.

Cozy, clean house very close to the slopes

  • 5 of 5

The owners made the rental very personal by being there to show us around. The house is clean and as advertised. My only concern is that the house is very crowded with lots of stuff but on the other hand, it could be seen as cozy and 'antique'! ☺ Having Netflix and fantastic Internet speed made movie watching enjoyable. The kids also loved playing in the front and side yard with the accumulated snow! Thanks to Dennis & Jean for sharing their home and making our stay enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Wow, thank you Vids. You folks were excellent guests and if you had told us we could have removed some of the supernumerary articles to make more space. :) Jean and I really enjoyed meeting y'all. Dennis

The accommodations were great! Clean, comfortable, plenty of room. The kids enjoyed the get-away and playing in the snow. The beds were comfortable and they loved he bunk beds. We enjoyed staying in to cook as well as the ease of going out since we had a great central location. I can't think of s single thing we would want to make it better. Without a doubt we will return! Thanks again!

This place was amazing and I would recommend this place to anyone that is interested in renting. The cabin is in excellent shape and has been newly refurbished. Dennis and Jean were very friendly and easy to work with. It was my first time using homeaway, Dennis and Jean made it very easy for us with open communication. They even met us up on the first day to show us around the cabin. We were able to fit 10 people comfortably and they provided us with all the amenities that you would need other then food and drinks. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. We will definitely be back next year.
