About Jonathan Willick

My wife and our family are Canadians living in San Diego and we bought this little place to have somewhere to go with the family to get away from the city and experience a bit of winter fun like skiing and sledding. We love heading up to Big Bear whenever we have a free weekend, its a great place to visit year round and has a lot of beautiful scenery and things to do.

Jonathan Willick purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jonathan Willick chose Moonridge

Quiet cozy place up the mountain, great location for a quiet stay in the woods away from it all. Also walkable to Bear Mountain ski resort for skiing/snowboarding or mountain biking. Great place to relax year round.

What makes this cabin unique

The place is an easy walk to Bear Mountain for anyone wanting to ski, you can go back and forth or go home for lunch and it is convenient with small children. There is also a lot of mountain biking in the area during the summer months. The deck has a great view of the trees and is a relaxing place to kick back and relax.

Very Cozy Cabin - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful New Year's weekend even without snow on the ground. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and has most things you will need for your stay.

Though a smaller cabin, you don't feel like it. We stayed with our adult son and Labrador and it was perfect. Could easily be comfortable for 4 adults or a small family.

The fireplace is wonderful. Large and efficient. Be sure to bring some firewood or fire logs in case there is none. It has a beautiful deck too. Newer HD TV with DirecTV. If you are into sports on ESPN or want to watch movies just bring a Chromecast to use with your phone or an HDMI cable to hook up to a laptop and you'll be set because they do have WiFi.

They are very close to Bear Mountain. A two block walk. So if you walk there you can either ski at Bear or take the shuttle to Summit. Unless you want to go out you really don't have to drive once here. A nice area to take your dog for a walk too.

Only thing to take note of in winter is the drive is at a down slope. So if it has snowed a lot of snow is expected during your stay and you don't have 4WD make sure you absolutely have chains. You should always have them anyway when coming to Big Bear in the winter so you don't get stuck and then hold up anyone behind you. There is a space at the top of the drive where you could park, but being able to use drive and beer right at the door for losing and unloading is ideal because it really is right there.

The owners are also very responsive. So if you have any questions they are quick to respond.

Great cabin. Would recommend this cozy cabin home.

Cozy, quiet cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is cozy, but it fit our group (including 2 dogs) just fine. We were able to make a nice Thanksgiving dinner with the pots and pans provided. The back deck is spacious and provided a nice space for the group to expand to when the inside got a bit crowded - when the temps are in the high 60's that's easy to do. Overall, we had a great time and loved that we could bring the dogs along with us to enjoy the holiday.

We had a great time at this cabin, it was clean and close to town. It had all the basics you need and a newer upgraded tv. The kitchen was cute and there were even games to play! We loved it.

Great Cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

Everything was excellent. Renter was easily available for questions I had. Area was great. We could hear the wolves and bears from the nearby zoo at night, but it didn’t keep us up.
