Call us for more details and discuss potential saving: 424-488-4050

Super comfortable, a lot bigger than what it seems.

Sleeps 3-5 (comfortably,) nestled in the pines of Moonridge this cabin features an open floor plan with a large kitchen; Dinning area, Living / family area / 1080p HD 'SMART' TV in living room, High Speed WIFI Internet connectivity / Laundry room / Game Room loaded with board games, foosball, and books to read.

One large fireplace style wood burning stove in the Living area. Brand new wood burning stove in the master bedroom.

New lighting, floors & carpets throughout.

Outside a large deck in front with swing, BBQ, and seating area to entertain. Spacious ~fully fenced~ back yard with play area for children. Newly built deck in backyard for added relaxation space.

propane BBQ for cooking outside.

Kitchen: Most vacation rental companies call kitchens 'stocked' by just supplying pots, pans and plates... That is not what we mean...

Our stocked kitchen is stocked with all amenities you need in a kitchen. Including appliances for baking, salad spinning, mixing, you name it. There are spices and some condiments you can use if you want. Complimentary coffee.

There is a trust factor with the games, DVD's. We know you will treat our house just like you'd treat your own. We have children's size snow suits, ski's, boots, sleds, and tubes anyone can use. 'Mi Casa es Su Casa!' And, you'll keep coming back! Tell your friends and family! We love to share our cabin!

Parking ~~Advisement~~

......If you drive any low-riding type car, it takes some "finesse" to park in the spot in front of our house. You just pull diagonally up the berm and slide in. Over-shoot a little, and then back up. The neighbor across the street has a pad as well, and if you ask him nice, he may allow you to part there as well. In the snow it is required to park off-street.

About John and Marilyn Bacon

We are the Bacon's. John, Marilyn, and Joey. We have many pets. 2 dogs, Rusty and Rico; a couple of turtles, a bearded dragon, and a horse 'Kobe'. We are a middle class family very laid back and friendly. Please call us with any questions or concerns about our cabin.

We live in the South Bay area of Southern California.

We love the outdoors, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, horseback riding, and swimming.

John and Marilyn Bacon purchased this cabin in 2012

Why John and Marilyn Bacon chose Moonridge

We purchased our cabin in honor of our beloved father, John W. Bacon (1927-2009,) who would always rent a cabin for us to get together for family reunions. This cabin doesn't hold a lot of people, but it is great for our small family. When our extened family comes around, we have freinds who own cabins nearby so we can all be close.

We purchased this property because we loved the floorplan and proximity to Bear Mountain, Snow Summit and all the local ammenities. It was a fixer-upper and we have done a lot of upgrading to the cabin already. When we bought it, originally, it was all carpeted with ~ugly~ old carpeting. Every room a different color and style. Even the kitchen and bathroom were carpeted. 'Quirky!' Now we installed some new carpeting and appropriately, floors where they should be. The lighting fixtures were 'original' from the 60's, so we had to replace those as well. We also did some structural work on the house. More to come!

What makes this cabin unique

We are in a good neighborhood, and close to EVERYTHING! But, you feel you are still in the rural mountains. Whether it is walking, riding our bikes, driving (and even easy access to the bus;) it's only a short trip. We love being close to the golf course and the Town trail is very close to start a nice hike. Also, most of our neighbors are FANTASTIC!

The open floor-plan was especially desirable to us because we could be cooking in the kitchen, playing games in the game room, watching TV in the family room, or just hanging out by the fireplace; all of us can still be together in essentially the same room!

We also fell in love with the curb appeal and charm of our front deck.

We love our big-little 'Bacon-Paradise!'

We have a fun YouTube Video of last year's Winter break:

This gives you a layout in video form of our 'paradise' but flooring upgrades had been done after the video was taken.

Also, new for 2014----FOOSBALL!!!!

Perfect Big Bear cabin

  • 5 of 5

Clean, cozy, and had all the amenities I needed. Close to town, but not noisy. We loved the snow. Remember to bring your own firewood.

Great location, could use some upgrades

  • 3 of 5

The location was wonderful. The space was very nice. The problem we had was that the beds in the room with the bunk bed were uncomfortable. Many of the pillows were also uncomfortable. Little touches, like making sure there is enough silverware for 5 people, would go a long way toward making this a four star property.

Magic Christmas

  • 5 of 5

I did rent the "Bacon Paradise" cabin for the Christmas week end to spend time at the mountain with my family and i have been more than happy to select this cabin. Well located, not far from the village and the ski departures, we had the chance to have the snow for Christmas eve and a sunny day on Christmas to enjoy outside activities. The cabin is big enough to stay inside when the weather is not good with a lot of activities to do with the family. The only missing things was a christmas tree but other than that the experience was amazing ! thanks again !

Quiet location, nice neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful spot to relax and enjoy beautiful Big Bear.

Great directions to the cabin--and very helpful sheets provided by the Bacons as to directions, favorite eating places and things to do. Cabin was well-maintained, clean and cozy.

We tried Pong's Restaurant nearby and really enjoyed it. Loved the Woodland Trail and walking by the lake and backroad driving.
