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.

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!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I first started looking at cabins for our little 3 day trip, there were tons of them for rent in Big Bear and surrounding area that were beautiful. Ski bear lodge stood out because of the pictures. I inboxed the owner Andrew and he responded back in a hour or so. Told me about the area. If chains were needed. He was very accommodating and knew about the area. This being our first vacation without our toddler, I wanted thInga to go smooth. Communication was on point until the morning of the trip. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was how peaceful it was. The interior was a mix of new technology but still had that cabin beauty. The washer and dryers were perfect, tvs, in every room. Fireplace in the master and the living room. But you could still walk outside and be in nature. It is exactly how it looks in its profile pictures. Full transparency which is great. There was a lot of information he had left on the living room coffee table including the area. Fun things to do. How to work the electronics and the jacuzzi (super relaxing). The nights were cold but that didn't matter. The heating in the house kept it a comfortable 72 the entire time. Plus the fireplaces, we were able to sit on the couch with the fireplace on at midnight and watch a movie and be with just each other. His kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, plates and pretty much everything you could need on a trip. It was the perfect destination for our trip. We will be coming here again but this time in the winter when the snow is around. I've been telling everyone who even brings up big bear about ski bear lodge. Overall this has been a positive experience and the communication between myself and the owner made everything that much easier. I look forward to staying here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback Cody! Im so glad it was all to your liking. Def come back for the winter festivities. Hanging around the ski resorts is a fun thing to do, even if youre not skiing. l love people watching, and they always seem to have something special going on. Now that Mammoth bought both resorts, look for some updating and new features. They are talking about installing a tram between both resorts possibly. That would be so cool! Thanks again!

Great lodge that's close to both ski resorts and the zoo.

  • 5 of 5

This place was terrific! It's clean, welcoming, fully stocked with spices and condiments, pots and pans, fluffy towels, board games, and soap and shampoo. My family had an awesome time skiing and then coming back to relax in the hot tub. We loved it and look forward to coming back!

Owner's Response: Thanks Tina for your review! I love when my guests have a fun time! I just went to the zoo the other day for the first time, believe it or not, and was surprised at how nice it was. I cant wait to see it reopen at its new location just walking distance from the cabin. Come back again :-)

Owner's Response: Thanks Garret for your review! Always looking to improve on what I have at my cabin. I actually have fun with this! Immediate plans are to add a private patio just outside the lower level door for a morning spot to have coffee and continental breakfast.
