About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 6, Parking For 3-Mountain Views

Beautiful Cabin with Amazing Views of Bear Mountain Ski Resort! You can't beat the location, right next to Bear Mountain Ski Resort with beautiful views of the slopes. You can spot satellites and shooting stars from the hot tub at night. You can hear the wolves at the zoo howling in the morning while enjoying your coffee on the front deck. It is a magical experience.

The cabin sleeps 4-6 comfortably, 1 master bedroom with a queen bed and full bath downstairs, a loft bedroom with a queen bed, twin bed, and half bath, 1 pull out full size sofa sleeper downstairs in living room. The cabin comes with fresh towels, and beds are made up with fresh linens and plenty of cozy blankets. Our dedicated cleaning crew has the cabin clean and ready before your visit and does the cleaning after your stay.

Two new 42' TV's with cable, and DVD players-one in master bedroom and one in living room, and iPod docking station for your music pleasure. We also have WIFI.

Fully stocked kitchen with all the amenities you will need during your stay, stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, blender, crock pot, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, and pots and pans. A comfortable dining nook with great views of the mountain and sunrise. A warm and inviting gas fireplace that warms the entire cabin for your comfort, no messing around with wood.

Enjoy the mountain view, sunrise, and night stars on the spacious deck in comfortable log chairs. Also, on the deck is a secluded 4 person hot tub with amazing views of the mountain.

Storage is provided downstairs for all your ski equipment, bikes, kayaks, or any other toys you may bring with you. There is also a washer/dryer provided for your convenience.

With the close proximity to Bear Mountain Resort they do make snow at night. Which means you will here the blowers at times. But it also means great skiing, boarding, and sledding during your stay. So hope you enjoy your stay at our cozy cabin!

About Dirk Jensen

My wife and I and 2 adult sons live in Carlsbad, Ca. We purchased the cabin as a second home for our active family lifestyle. Our plan is to someday live there full-time when I retire from the Fire Service. We love the cabins location next to Bear Mountain for easy access to the slopes and many other activities the mountain provides. Please come and enjoy our home as much as we do year round.

Dirk Jensen purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Dirk Jensen chose Moonridge

We chose this property for the amazing views and location. The minute I walked into the warm and inviting cabin it felt like home. We ski and snowboard in the winter, mountain bike and ride our dirt bikes in the summer. It is close enough to the lake to enjoy all the activities it has to offer.

Perfect Stay at a Perfect Cabin! Super Clean!

  • 5 of 5

The owner's have done a great job with this cabin. It is beautiful and provides all the necessities modern needs such as cable tv, wi-fi, etc., and is well-kept and clean. We loved the hot-tub at night and the view is beautiful. Great little coffee shop just down the road (Moonridge Coffee Company), the rescue zoo nearby is really great, and we found a few good restaurants including La Vella Villa Grill which is lacking in decor but is nice enough and the food is pretty darn good.

The Cozy Hideaway was awesome. The house was exactly like the posting said. The only critique I would give is all the stairs. In the thin air we weren't use to the stairs were a truck. Lol. The driveway was a little steep too, but we managed. We had a wonderful stay and the house was beautiful and fully equipped. The owner was responsive to all emails and text messages....not that we had a lot, but he does respond. The house is just up the street from the wildlife zoo where they have animals that can't be released back into the wild. That's a must see minimal cost to get in but it goes to the animals.

Totally recommend this house.

Very pleased. Highly reccomend.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my family on the last weekend of January 2016. This is a warm, cozy, open layout house with a short walk to the lifts. Everything is provided, except filtered water and handicap access. Other than that I highly reccomend this location for a getaway. Owners are very nice and accommodating and they respond promptly to your questions or concerns.

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Great location for snowboarding by day and clean cozy cabin to bring everyone together by night. My family of 7 stayed here for New Years Eve 2016 weekend. Although, some may say the cabin it's self isn't all that large I found that the chic rustic cabin and size was exactly what I was looking for. In the past, larger cabins kept us from coming together and this cabin was perfect for bring us all together and telling all our funny memories while over looking the slopes during sunset. We were literally steps away from the slopes. Since we are a big family it is hard to get everyone together and in one car at one time. The close location made it very easy and stress free for us to go on our own time. Overall, I highly recommend this cabin to others.

Perfect cabin for out weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a weekend at this wonderful cabin. The cabin was clean, comfortable and well appointed. You can't beat the location, right next to Bear Mountain Ski Resort with beautiful views of the slopes. We enjoyed spotting satellites and shooting stars from the hot tub at night, and we heard the wolves at the zoo howling! It was magical. Highly recommend this cabin and we hope to be back again soon!

Bear mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

Visited the cabin at the end of August. Great escape from so cal heat this time of year. Very serene with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The owner was very attentive to every detail of our stay, and he gave me great advice about local trails. If you are a mountain biker the skyline trail begins a short grind up the road. The zoo is right down the street, and they have many rescued animals that you might not see anywhere else. The wolves serenade you at Sun down. Overall great getaway. Access to the cabin requires going up some stairs so flat landers will feel that.
