About Laura Bear

I build stunts and obstacles for reality television after working in the rock climbing industry for 10 years. I spend a lot of time travelling all over the country and the rest of the world!

Laura Bear purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Laura Bear chose Moonridge

I loved the modern yet rustic feel, the amount of space in the backyard, and the neighborhood. The spiral staircase is my favorite architectural feature and the loft is my favorite room (especially in the winter, as it's the warmest)! The wood burning stove is the best little thing to warm the entire house. I also liked that it was a manageable size, but still had plenty of different spaces for people to hang out. Front porch or backyard/deck, upstairs or down, eating nook or office nook, watch tv from the recliners in the main room or watch a movie in bed, or take a long bath in the jet tub!

What makes this cabin unique

Superb location. Flat parking spaces to make it easier in the winter. Walking distant

Amazing little retreat up in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Was an awesome cabin that I and my pup loved! Cozy and remote, this cabin is a great location with close access to hiking trails, Big Bear Zoo, and the town itself! Definitely will add this little retreat to my lists of must rent places!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

The cleanliness and location were fantastic. It was easy to access the mountain, hiking trails are within walking distance, and it's far enough away from the village to avoid traffic, but close enough that you can get there in 10 minutes or less, even with traffic. The cabin is small but roomy, the layout would work perfectly for 2-3 people. It was just me and my dog, so we had plenty of room. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, utensils, cleaning supplies, most anything you could need to make a few meals. The back deck was nice to sit on during the day. If you're going to be grilling out back, bring a lantern, the automatic lights will turn off if you sit still for too long and the patio lights don't provide great visibility. The only real issue I had was that the furnace went from 0-60 in a notch or two, so it was either chilly or I was broiling, but I went with chilly most of the time and just curled up under blankets or wore a sweatshirt. Laura was very friendly and easy to communicate with, and there are plenty of instructions posted inside the cabin to help guide you if you have questions - I didn't have to contact her at all after I arrived. I would happily stay there again!

Cute, cozy, cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark to this fun get away. We were pleased the address was lit up for us to see. The keys were easily accessed and the home was cozy, clean, and had everything we needed. The fenced yard in the back had a deep lot, and it was wonderful for our dog who loves to romp and play outside. The furnishings were full of character and made us feel at home. One of the highlights was the spa jetted bathtub. It adds a little extra luxury and relaxation and who doesn't enjoy that? The bed was comfortable and the small desk and chair were great for our laptop. We didn't use the upstairs loft, but it seemed extra roomy. The only hesitation I would have would be young children or elderly as the spiral stairs could be a safety issue. We loved the neighborhood and it was so close to Bear Mountain which would be a big plus especially in the wintertime.Our favorite activity was bike riding on the North Shore of the Lake. Everything was conveniently located within a short drives distance.The only complaint would be the construction going on next door. They started by 8am and it would have been nice to have another hr or so of quiet. They didn't work on Sunday which was a plus. It would be helpful to have some instructions on accessing the Netflix and how to effectively use the Franklin stove which us city folk weren't used to. All and all it was a VERY enjoyable stay. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and useful feedback, Virginia! I am so sorry about the construction. :-/ They don't usually work on the weekends and will be done by this winter, which is very soon. I can't wait!
