Great location, good amenities, easy to find, close to the slopes.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. We had a nice relaxing time. The people at the management company were friendly and easy to deal with. I would only suggest to have a snow shovel available for guests, you know, for when the snow plow piles up snow along everyone's drivways! It all work out. We had a blast! Thank you

Hi Doris,

This was my first time cabin trip ever and it was perfect! The house was easy to locate, atmosphere was quiet & cozy, and everything was neat and clean upon arrival. I will definitely be returning at the end or the year. Thanks for inviting me and my friends to stay at your lovely home.

Location Perfect, BUT Smaller, older, and less maintained than would have liked

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a blast.

Owner was reachable and responsive

Location is excellent, close to skiing, sledding, golf course, downtown, groceries

Was able to keep warm when it was 15 degrees outside (though upstairs significantly warmer than downstairs.)

Hot tub was our favorite. Fits four comfortably and gets hot pretty quickly.

WiFi good strength

Cable TV excellent

Refridgerator and Dishwasher in good shape and appeared new

Washer and dryer functional

Some things that I did not care for:

Read fine print. This is a 1300+ sq ft home.

Not really a 3 bedroom (this was a big bummer). The third bedroom is a half room with two small bunk beds and a small TV

No sofa bed downstairs or in loft. Loft has single small twin bed.

No TV in the loft

TV pretty small downstairs

Leaky toilet in downstairs bathroom persisted throughout visit, despite a maintenance repair effort.

Garbage disposal leaking under sink

Several light bulbs burned out

Some light fixtures with broken knobs. We had to get a plier to turn them on.

ATT cell phone coverage non-existent. Sprint coverage very good

Minimal pots and pans

No cleaning supplies around

No chlorine present for spa maintenance. After three days it began to get a bit cloudy and smell.

Parking very limited due to city ordinance and space in driveway limited due to garage space not being available. You can squeeze in 3 cars if crafty.

Beds very old and creaky. Sheets very hard. Was not sure if sheets were changed prior to our arrival. When we arrived, there were some stains and hairs on the pillows… So we washed them to make sure.

Although maintenance was available through Big Bear Vacations, they did not appear to be too sharp or eager.

Would I stay her again? Yes, but not unless the TV and sofa bed (or lack of) issues were remedied.

Owner's Response: After reviewing the text details, I now realize you had 11 people in the house intended for a maximum of 7; however, the reservation search criteria provided to me was for 5 people (2 adults and 3 children). Pictures are provided on this web site of all rooms and beds to help visitors decide if the cabin is appropriate. The management services we use replace linen/towels and clean the house after each visit. I am glad the service was able to immediately to address maintenance as well as spa issues. We’ve added additional kitchen cookware and maintenance has replaced non-working light bulbs. Thank you for your valuable feedback. It helps us improve our cabin.

Family Time in Big Bear

  • 4 of 5

This roomy, cozy Moonridge hideaway was perfectly what we were looking for! My kids and I went up to Big Bear for a pre Christmas adventure!

The cabin slept everyone comfortably. The floor plan was open yet afforded privacy. Great heat. Loved the spa! We were lucky to get a few inches of snow which made everything perfect! A great day on the slopes and it was super nice to have the dryer to put all our wet stuff in it . We loved the fireplace and BBQ. The cabin is centrally located to the main drag and close to supermarkets and slopes. Upon our arrival, we found the kitchen sink not to be draining and the garbage disposal not working properly. We called Property Management and a service man arrived within 30 minutes to repair it. Additionally, we were unable to get the TV cable to work in the living room. Again we called Property Management and a tech was out promptly to fix. The TV in the Bunk Bed room was not operational as I understand the cable companies there recently changed services and an additional box needed to be installed.

Regardless, the problems were both resolved promptly so they were not impactful to our vacation. I have rented a few cabins over the years and this was by far one of the best. . .I was so pleased to have had the availability so close to Christmas and it certainly added to the wonderful time that we had!

Doris, the owner, is very responsive and one can see that she goes the extra mile to make sure the stay is a memorable one. Thank you Doris!

Owner's Response: I am glad you and your family had a good time. Thank you for your positive review. We literally finished completely remodeling the kitchen right before Thanksgiving this year so I am glad everything worked out. More upgrades are planned in the months/years to come. Hope to have you come back soon.

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a weekend getaway. The cabin was very cozy, comfortable and clean. The bedroom with the twin bunk beds was great for my teens and they also enjoyed the foosball table. Close to Bear Mountain which was a plus. Doris was great and responded to inquiries quickly. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

big bear rental

  • 4 of 5

Great home and location. There were some things that I will change. First the home needed a better cleaning. Dust was found on the furniture and the tv was clean with some type of oil base rag which made watching television a little difficult until I cleaned it myself. The dishes were not clean. No dish towels, no toilet paper, no toaster were founded. Also the furniture made need to be replace or repaired it felt like it was going to fall apart. (TABLES). overall the home is great, great location and very comfortable stay. Thank you will also recommend this home.

Owner's Response: Great News! We have completely remodeled the kitchen this fall. We completely gutted the old kitchen and replaced it with a custom kitchen. This includes new custom cabinets, flooring, stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, quartz counter top, new french doors and new kitchen tables and chairs. Take care, Doris
