About Marta Neely

I discovered this wonderful house when I needed to retreat from life in the fast lane. Walking by the lake, hiking on the trails, and watching the morning come while drinking coffee on the deck filled me with joy and renewed my spirit. When I needed to return to city life, I just couldn't sell my dream home -- one day, I'll move back for good. I always enjoyed sharing my home with friends and neighbors, so making it a vacation cabin has been a pleasure.

Marta Neely purchased this house in 2005

Why Marta Neely chose Moonridge

I had no intention of buying a cabin the day I came up to look at a few properties 'just for the heck of it.' This cabin was the first one I saw -- when we arrived at the next property, I told the realtor, 'Stop! I want that one I just looked at!' The amazing views and the inviting rustic interior were exactly what I wanted, even though I didn't know it until I walked through the front door and saw the mountain views through the windows!

What makes this house unique

Luxury and comfort combined with rustic charm make this a wonderful place to enjoy life, but the magnificent views from huge decks are what truly makes this chalet unique!

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so perfect, its actually my 2nd stay and looking into coming back for a 3rd one. Starting with Marta (Owner), she's very responsive and was accommodating to certain request. What i love most about the place its the two decks, and of course the HOT TUB :). The cabin has everything you need including an absolute great view!. I'm definitely coming back and checking for this property first.

Great location and cabin in Big Bear

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with our family in this cabin. The cabin had everything you need and was clean and had a great layout for us. Marta was very easy to deal with and was very helpful. The view from the deck was beautiful and the location of the cabin was perfect. We will definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed it . . . Hope you stay longer and enjoy the hot tub on the lower deck with Bear Mountain views, a roaring fire in the fireplace, a romantic dinner on the upper deck while watching the sunset, coffee and pancakes and songbirds at sunrise, even a foosball game or two! One night is never enough!

Great location for skiing!

  • 5 of 5

We had great time in this cabin! It's equipped with everything you might need and has a lot of bard games. The cabin stayed nice and warm even when it was very cold outside.

I would definitely recommend staying in this cabin.

What a view!!!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I decided to take a spontaneous trip to Big Bear Lake with another couple. We chose Blue Spruce Chalet mainly because of the big decks and views of Bear Mountain. When we arrived, we were surprised with how spacious and comfortable the interior is -- even a lot better than the photos on VRBO, with new furniture and rustic decor. The master bedroom has a king-size Sleep Number bed, so my girlfriend and I set the firmness levels individually. That bedroom and another one have large windows with mountain views. They also are by the door to the lower deck with the spa, which we soaked in at night and also during the warm afternoon, since that deck is in the shade. The dining room and living room also have large view windows. Still the extra large upper deck is the best feature, and we had an awesome time barbecuing and watching what turned out to be a nice sunset. Also enjoyed viewing the stars that night and having breakfast on the deck the next morning. We definitely want to come back for ski season and bring the rest of the family!

Blue Spruce Chalet is 5-10 minutes away from all of the exciting recreational opportunities on the mountain!! Go for the gusto -- zip lining over the spectacular valleys near California's highest peak! Big Bear Lake has wonderful hiking trails -- you can even connect with the famous Pacific Crest Trail. The lake is a gorgeous site throughout the year. In the summer, go power boating, jet skiing, sailing, or even parasailing! Walk or bike for miles along the lake on a paved path -- those with binoculars might see eagles! The Discovery Center is a great place to learn about the area's native plants and wildlife. Get close to Grizzly and black bears, cougars, bobcats, wolves, and many other animals at the must-see Big Bear (Rescue) Zoo -- one of the top alpine zoos in the world! Stargazers will be thrilled with the billions of stars visible in the night sky! When summer changes to fall, enjoy the bright colors of changing leaves. The invigorating cool, crisp air is ideal for hiking, biking, and brisk walks along the lake. In wintertime, bundle up for downhill/ cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and sledding/ tubing down the breathtaking Alpine Slide! Bring the kids for the outdoor experience of a lifetime! Don't miss the excitement in the downtown Village -- take a ride in a horse drawn carriage, drink hot chocolate as the huge Christmas tree lights up, and visit shops and restaurants filled with Christmas cheer! Alas, when winter ends, spring awakens with bursting blooms and chirping birds. Dust off the hiking boots, unpack the golf clubs and fishing gear, and don't forget the kites and Frisbee -- cool, breezy days and fresh mountain air will lift your spirits as a glorious new season arrives in Southern California's alpine paradise -- sunny Big Bear Lake!
