About Nadia de Winter

Originally from Switzerland I have always wanted to own a cabin in the mountains reminding me of my homeland.

Finally I found the right house which I turned into a typical Swiss chalet with American Log style characters.Currently living in Los Angeles and enjoying the amazing state of California I enjoy the setting and location of Big Bear Lake with its many possibilities as skiing, hiking, water sports, fishing ...and specially the stunning weather of California.

Nadia de Winter purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Nadia de Winter chose Moonridge

I have been looking to find a cabin for several years and was looking for A - Frame style with tall ceilings and lots of character and an open floor plan...and there it was!!!

The wall of glass in the 2 story living room embraces the outside and pulls in nature to the fullest...

What makes this chalet unique

The deciding factor was the architecture of the A - Frame style log home with its 2 story living room, a large deck and views and specially the central location of 'UPPER Moonridge' with its close proximity to the ski slopes, the lake and several hiking trails.

We had a great 4 day getaway to Big Bear at Chalet Edelweiss. It's everything that the owners describe and more. It's very clean and well stocked. Location is great. Highly recommended!

Perfect getaway for a small family

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time here for a long weekend ski getaway. Booking, payment, and confirmation was all very easy. The owner is very organized and everything was as expected. The house is cozy and very clean, with a well-stocked kitchen and spotless fridge. The loft bedroom is super cute. Free Netflix was also a big hit with the kids after a long day of skiing. Definitely bring snow chains as the house is slightly uphill on the road- we couldn't make it up in our FWD car. The only downside is Big Bear and the ski resorts themselves, which have been overcome by corporate forces and are less charming than I remember from 15-20 years back.

Had a wonderful time relaxing with lady friends for a girlfriend get-a-away. Peaceful, gorgeous well maintained property. Netflicks was a nice added bonus. That and our margaritas!

Cute and very cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Chalet Eidelweiss! It's smaller than it looks in pictures, but it's so cozy and the decor is adorable. 5 of us fit in very comfortably. The beds were soft, the kitchen was well-stocked with equipment, and the owner was very responsive with any questions we had. Only complaint was the stupid woodpecker hanging around and pecking on the roof at all hours. I had to go out at 6am to chase him away. Otherwise, our stay was terrific! Thank you, Nadia, for a lovely visit!
