About Andrew Chiodi

I love the outdoors. I have lived in California for over 16 years and grateful for the opportunity to share this cozy, beautiful mountain home with family, friends and guests. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

PS: The neighbors are truly great.

Andrew Chiodi purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Andrew Chiodi chose Moonridge

The combination of the Moonridge area of Big Bear Lake, and the amenities of the home, strike a great balance of the things I seek when I want to get away from the city and enjoy the beauty of the surrounding San Bernardino National Forest.

Over all i give this place an 8

  • 4 of 5

Has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Pots , pans and linens.Jacuzzi very clean and secluded. Decorated nicely as well. Needs a good dusting.and wood decks front and back need to be washed down..Back neighbors played loud music last Saturday. Dont know if thats a standard or not..Wife did not like to tear down beds at the end of stay and take the trash to the dump.Shes says thats the cleaning ladys job..I would have to agree. But over all, a great place to stay..

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review Donald! So sorry about the dust. It gets dusty quick up there both in and out of the cabin, especially when the winds pick up. I'll have to get my cleaning lady to spend a bit more time to dust. The requirement of bringing trash to the drop off are required for me to post by the city of Big Bear Lake . I guess they require it to discourage animals from invading and making a mess on the streets? And stripping beds seem to be standard thing for people to do to indicate that a bed has been used so cleaning lady knows it needs to be changed out. Thanks again for stayinig!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review guys! I like to make the cabin as cozy as possible with lighting and comfortable furniture. Sounds like it had the desired effect ;-) Come back when there is some snow forcast for the mountains. And thanks so much for staying!! Andy C.

The pictures on the website do not do this home justice. It's absolutely wonderful. It's clean, it's updated, very comfortable and the location is perfect. Our family went to Big Bear to watch my daughter-in-law run the Spartan race and let me just say that the hot tub came in very handy! She was able to get right in after the race (and join us) and relax her muscles. I just can't say enough about this home. The beds are very comfy! Andy was very accommodating and responsive. The information he gave was very detailed and helpful. We will definitely be coming back to this home!

Hiking retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 and stayed in early October. The place was immaculate, cozy, and the beds were comfortable. Plenty of room and privacy. We didn't use the hot tub but we checked it out. Very clean. The kitchen has everything you need equipment wise. The tv is huge and has internet capability . The owner was quick to respond to any questions we had. Tucked in a quiet neighborhood close to down but out of the hustle bustle. Close to the ski slopes and hiking trails. We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review Laura! Its greatly appreciated. My favorite time of the year is actually spring and fall when the weather is perfect for hiking. Snow Summit also offers mountain biking a good part of the year... You hook up your bike to the lifts, go up, then cruise down the mountain.
