About Jon & Mardee Kappeler
We moved to Angelus Oaks in 1995 when Jon was teaching science in Yucaipa and Mardee was teaching at the one-room school in Angelus Oaks for the Big Bear school district. There is no other place we want to live; we love it here. When the cabin came up for sale in 2007, we decided to buy it and make it a vacation rental. Since then, through Cedar Lodge, we have been able to introduce many others to the beauty of this area, and 3 of our former guests and their families have become permanent residents of Angelus Oaks.
Jon & Mardee Kappeler purchased this Cabin in 2007

Delightful rustic cabin in the woods
Everything that we possibly could have wanted was available, and then some. In addition to providing food and beverages, the water bowl for the dogs was filled, and there was food for the birds and squirrels. The fire was laid when we arrived so all we had to do was light a match. The cabin is delightful and plenty comfortable and warm. The property owners were very responsive to any questions and greeted us shortly after we arrived but gave us privacy during our stay.
The bed was very comfortable, and had plenty of extra blankets and pillows.
It was also lovely to have a small library and board games available.
Definitely one of the best cabins we have ever stayed in through VRBO. We would definitely come back.
The last bonus was that the cabin was very easy to find and the roads are very well-maintained, which hasn't always been the case for mountain cabins.
Like staying with a friend
The cabin was adorable, clean, comfortable, and a perfect size for us (2 couples). It is very close to the San Bernardino Peak trail. There was bird seed to feed the various bird population as well as the squirrels! Lol! Our hosts were exceptional! They treated us like close friends - giving us activity suggestions, leaving us yummy snacks and breakfast goodies, congratulating us on summiting the peak, and just being so sweet and thoughtful. Thank you Mardee and Jon for a wonderful stay! You made us feel like we were close friends!
Wonderful weekend at Cedar Lodge in Angeles Oaks!!
We spent the weekend at Cedar Lodge. The cabin was perfect for our stay. Jon & Mardee had the fridge stocked with everything needed for breakfast and packing a lunch for our hike. There were eggs, milk, ham, cheese, sourdough bread and so much more. They even left us champagne and orange juice for mimosas! There were fresh flowers and lots of towels and nice linens on the beds. The cabin was sparkling clean. Communication prior to checkin was always prompt. Jon and Mardee went above and beyond our expectations. I would absolutely recommend Cedar Lodge to anyone looking for a fabulous getaway in the mountains.
3 Generation vacation
Thank you for providing us with the perfect venue for our three generation vacation. Your kindness and generosity made our stay even more memorable. Thank you for all your generous and thoughtful "extra touches." I recommend this cabin to all.
We couldn’t have been more pleased! Wonderful surprises!
Great place in a beautiful and serene area
We had such a nice time at this cabin, it was so beautiful inside and the owners went above and beyond to make it a nice stay. They even left us thing sin the fridge to eat, snacks, fresh fruits and a bottle of champagne. The cabin had everything you could need inside and it was comfortable. Beds were great, so were the couches. Super nice area too, a little secluded but still close enough to a grocery store and a restaurant.
