The highlight of the cabin is the raised private deck with a grill, picnic table, chairs and the jacuzzi you have to sit in to take in the sunset!

Gorgeous views of Snow Summit from Jacuzzi on private fenced in deck. Views of Bear Mountain from master bedroom and end of driveway.

If you want to rough it, We also have a wood burning stove which keeps the entire cabin warm with a firewood supplier right next door!

We allow all breeds of dogs and built a dog fence around the entire deck and fenced in lower yard so you can bring all your family members.

I will always try to answer all inquiries with an email back within an hour.

Modern amenities include brand new flat parking deck for 4 cars, hardwood floors, wood beam / plank ceilings, outdoor hot tub, tankless water heater (so you’ll never run out of hot water), propane grill and new heating system with ducts in all rooms.

About Mike Rotman

Born on the east coast now living in California- I missed the quiet calm of a snow storm. I work with dog and cat rescues and am also a comedy writer who needed a break now and then and a place to come up and think and take my dog Ulfie for long walks in the fresh air (Despite his little corgi legs)

Mike Rotman purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Mike Rotman chose Moonridge

I always dreamed of a get away cabin, a place I can go and write and relax. After saving my money for a long time and searching for over a year- I finally found the perfect place, Milo Bear Cabin in Lower Moonridge. I love this area as it's not houses on top of each other with chain link fences. This is much more quiet and a good mixture of full and part time residents. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

What makes this cabin unique

The cozy authenticates of a log cabin with modern amenities. I can feel like I'm a pioneer while still logging in to check my Facebook posts. :)

Gorgeous views: Snow Summit from the huge elevated private deck. Bear Mountain and Snow Summit from the living room and master bedroom. Snow Summit from the 2nd bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My friends and I had an amazing girls weekend at Mike's cabin! It was even better than the photos! We were lucky enough to get some snow which was an incredible experience for me as I had never seen it. Not only was Mike's cabin clean and cosy but Mike was the best host we have had while being here in the States for 5 months. He was quick to answer all our questions and had the most detailed and helpful instructions. We absolutely loved Big Bear and our stay in the cabin and would highly recommend staying to all!

We loved Milo Bear Cabin! The location was great and the cabin made you feel right at home. The jacuzzi was such a plus! Our dog also loved exploring the fenced in deck. We will definitely be planning another trip soon!

Awesome well appointed comfy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 kids and our lab) had a wonderful time at Milo Bear Cabin. Mike was super responsive and a breeze to work with. The kitchen was stocked better than our own kitchen, Mike has pretty much thought of everything you could possibly need. The cabin does not have a "pet" smell like some pet rentals do. Everything was clean, the furniture was super comfortable, the towels were soft clean and fluffy! We enjoyed the hot tub with the snow surrounding us. Tons and tons of board games and free netflix were great for the kids and the snowy cold nights. The heater works awesome. Great bathroom and water pressure. Great location, great views! We will for sure be back!!!

Milo Bear Cabin is located in Moonridge between Big Bear Mountain and Snow Summit ski resorts and just a mile from the Alpine (rescue) Zoo and the beautiful Big Bear golf course. When not taking in the majestic pine trees, ski mountain views and sunsets from our spa deck there are activities for everyone within a 5 min car ride.

For those of you who like adventure, you can soar faster than birds while zip lining over the valleys and mountains of Big Bear. Or maybe you want to explore the ridges, canyons, meadows, streams & rivers of the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains while visit historic community & gold rush sites all from the comfort of an off road jeep.

If biking is your thing, Big Bear has dozens of Bike paths with all levels of difficulty. Snow Summit is now So Cal’s only lift served Bike Park! Put your bike on a ski lift and go all the way to the top and then ride down one of 3 different bike trails. For a more leisurely pace, there is a great flat bike path by the Discovery Center that goes around the scenic lake.

And don’t forget about your dog! The forests surrounding Big Bear Lake offer trails for hikers and walkers at all skill levels. For the adventurous, high peaks offer 360 degree panoramas. Snow Summit's Sky Chair can easily take you to the top so you can hike down while enjoying spectacular scenic vistas that include superb views of Big Bear Lake and deep forests. Or just walk around our neighborhood and see all the beautiful surrounding cabins, chalets and 100 foot pine trees.

For water sports, with 3 Marinas all minutes away, Big Bear has it all. From water skiing to para sailing and wake board parks to just hanging out on a pontoon with friends, the 6.5 mile Big Bear Lake has something for everyone.

And if you love shopping Big Bear village is 7 minutes away, a straight shot down moonridge to Big Bear Blvd. The Village offers a wide array of boutiques, bars, restaurants, antique stores, ice cream and candy shops and even a first run movie theater.

And if you ever want to grab a quick bite before taking this all in there is a great deli and rustic coffee and pastry shop less than a ½ mile walking distance away.
