Play billiards, video and board games, WiFi with Netflix, Amazon Prime & Hulu Plus or watch one of several hundred DVD’s available for your use.

Extra sleeping available in the hide-a-bed in the living room. Pets are welcome: toys & water/food bowls provided. Snow sleds in the garage and a perfectly sloped driveway make for hours of wintertime play. Feel free to take the two inflatable kayaks to the lake for summertime fun.

About Nick Anderson

I'm married with a toddler and a baby on the way. I grew up in Oregon so this cabin is a little touch of home. This is not just a rental for us - it's our home away from home. We put a great deal of care and love into it and I'm sure you'll be feel as comfortable here as we do!

Why Nick Anderson chose Moonridge

I grew up in Oregon, so getting back to nature is a must for me and my family. We looked at 80 cabins before we chose this one. We wanted Upper Moonridge for the better chances of snow, views, a flat back yard for the kids, off street parking since it's illegal to park on the street when the snow plows are running, and curb appeal. You can see why it took so long for us to find all this in one place. But we got it! And so much more.

What makes this house unique

There is no house built on the lot next door. It's just a large open forrest. So not only is it beautiful, but we have a lot of privacy. It's hard to see any neighbors out the windows.

Great place to stay... lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the cabin! Nick was very responsive and helpful. Cabin was neat and clean, warm and cozy. Lots of room for big families. One minor thing, though: there were lots of snow when we came in and the driveway was covered. It was difficult to clear the driveway, especially for 3 vehicles to fit (no street parking by law). The shovels could use an upgrade as well. Other than that, great overall experience! Thanks Nick!

Family friendly Home

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our whole family and two dogs. The family room is a fabulously large space where we all gathered, played games, watched movies and enjoyed the fireplace. The kitchen table is large enough to seat us all - so nice! The owner, Nick, more than accommodated our requests and responded promptly to my communications. Everything was clean and ready for us. it is definitely a home we would return to when we visit Big Bear again.

Cozy, comfortable and beautiful cabin to stay. Would rent it back :)

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, along with a family group of 10 total stayed at this cabin to spend new year's in Big Bear.

The owner, Nick was always very nice, professional and fast at responding with any inquires we had.

We received an email the day before with all the instructions, FAQs and tips to consider before getting there. That was

very helpful.

The place has beautiful views, the cabin is big, clean, comfortable, the living room area is super cozy, kitchen is big enough

to have 3-4 people cooking/prepping. Lots of board games to play with, book, pool table, cable, internet, etc.

The rooms are a little small, but yet comfortable.

The deck area is super nice for grilling, even in the cold :)

Our 2 dogs (a Labrador and Golden Retriever) were the happiest, running/playing in the areas outside around the house.

We would definitely rent it back. We were very please with our stay.

Amazing Thanksgiving Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house with my aunt (she and I are both from Buffalo) We were hoping for snow for our California families and our wishes were granted. Views from the house were incredible. We got to watch the snow on the mountainside as we cooked Thanksgiving dinner and the next day...big fat snowflakes fell!

They have a smoker, so were were able to smoke one turkey and roast the other.The huge living room was super comfortable for us to all hang out and watch movies after dinner. Finally, my girls loved sledding right in the backyard!

It really is a magical place, that we hope to return to very soon!
