About the Property
Sleeps 6, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Convenient Cabin WALK to Bear Mtn Resort, Golf, Zoo
Twin Pines Cabin is a charming wood-paneled cabin with all the comforts of home. Recently remodeled exterior and newly furnished interior is comfortably equipped for a relaxing mountain getaway. Well-equipped kitchen comes with everything you’ll need to indulge your culinary desires. Twin Pines Cabin is perfectly located for skiing, snowboarding, golfing or long hikes in the woods as all are within walking distance to the cabin. In the convenient Lower Moonridge area of Big Bear, you will find yourself mere minutes from the excitement of The Village shops and restaurants yet nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood one block from the national forest and less than half a mile from Bear Mountain ski resort.
The cozy living room is a great place for the family to gather and relax in front of a roaring fireplace. The view of our twin pines through the front glass door makes you feel as though the cabin is nestled in the heart of the forest.
The exterior boasts a large front deck and convenient LEVEL two car drive-up parking. No scary traveling up and down icy roads or climbing up long flights of steps!
Guests will have access to a fully stocked kitchen with plenty of herbs and spices, pots, pans, bakeware, appliances and full-sized stove and refrigerator. Breakfast can be waffles made with our waffle can be a hearty stew made with our family-sized crockpot.
The loft has a full array of entertainment for your family to enjoy. It features a Wii gaming system with video games in stock. You'll also find several board games, cards and puzzles to wile away the hours when all you want to do is stay indoors and be cozy near the fire.
Need to get some work done while vacationing or want to do some online shopping? Connect to our wireless internet on your smartphone, tablet or laptop and surf the web or remote access your work.
Snuggle down in the evenings with some popcorn and watch streaming movies on either Netflix or Hulu+. Make a quick run to the nearby Redbox and rent a movie to play in our DVD.
Not in the mood for a movie? Take one of our folding chairs out to the deck with one of our down lap blankets and listen to the coyotes howl and see the stars fill the sky.

“Lower Moonridge” is the portion of the Moonridge area that is situated between Moonridge Road and Bear Mountain resort, backing to the National Forest on the south. It’s a more “level” area than other parts of Moonridge, and is within walking distance to skiing, golf, and hiking trails.
A portion of Lower Moonridge was one of the first to be subdivided in the area, and offers compact-size lots with true “mountain cabins.” Views in this area are mainly neighborhood and trees, and the area is densely populated with gorgeous pines and oaks.
Lower Moonridge offers a great “mountain feel” with easy access, and as such is a popular location for vacation cabins and vacation rentals. Full-time residences in the area range from small to medium in size, with the eclectic mix of styles that Moonridge is famous for. Cute log-faced cabins share the block with vintage charmers, Victorians, Gambrels and “mountain style” designs.
Bear Mtn. winter resort, the Bear Mtn golf course, and Big Bear Alpine Zoo are all just a hop-skip-and-a-jump from Lower Moonridge, or walk to the Bear Mtn/Snow Summit shuttle. The small business district in lower Moonridge offers select professional services, ski and board rental shops, and one of Big Bear’s favorite deli's!
The area is just minutes by car to Snow Summit, the lake and marinas, supermarkets and banking and the “downtown” Village.
During ski season, free shuttle service to Snow Summit is available and just a two-minute drive from the cabin.
Mountain Area Regional Transit Authority (MARTA) provides local and Dial-a-Ride bus service to the Big Bear Valley, Running Springs, Lake Arrowhead, Crestline and Off-the-Mountain service to San Bernardino

We ask that you please refrain from asking for reductions in our rates and fees.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Born and raised in California, we both love the variety and beauty that our home state has to offer. Adrian grew up in Redwood City on the San Francisco peninsula and Karen grew up in the South Bay area of San Diego. We met while students at SDSU and married a year later. Our primary home is in Escondido, CA where we've raised two beautiful children who attend our local middle and high schools. Adrian works at the Union Tribune newspaper as a city editor, Karen works at Illumina as a Planner. We stay busy with work, kids, sports, Sea Cadets (a youth program that our son belongs to), and our beloved cabin.
Why the Owner Chose Lower Moonridge, Moonridge, Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
Ten years ago we began visiting the Big Bear area with family friends and fell in love with the area. Friendly locals, beautiful surroundings and such a close getaway, yet feels like a complete escape. When the opportunity arose to purchase here, we grabbed it and have loved every minute of home ownership here. We love our cabin and love sharing it with others. We hope you'll spend a few days at Twin Pines Cabin and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings as we do.
