About Ron Kassan

Brad & Ron are college buddies from San Diego State who bought this cabin to enjoy with each of their families. It is their pleasure to rent it to other families with similar interests and it helps with the affordability.

Ron Kassan purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Ron Kassan chose Moonridge

Before purchasing the cabin, we looked at 25 others. None offered the serenity, mountain vacation feeling and immediate proximity to Bear Mtn, Golf, Zoo, & Nat'l Forest where we love to Mountain Bike Ride, Sled, Hike and play.

What makes this cabin unique

You're dealing with honest, family oriented, responsible people who take a GREAT deal of Pride of Ownership in their Cabin. You will always find the cabin in incredible condition, as we visit the cabin regularly along with our Property Manager and Maintenance Personnel.

We had a group of 14 with 8 kids and we never once felt cramped or tight. This home is amazing and has ample of fun stuff in the house for the kids to do. Great area for children to play upstairs while adults can enjoy some down time in the downstairs living room. Everything clean and very homey! Will def be staying here again!!!

Best accommodations by far. Spacious and enjoyable to the fullest

  • 5 of 5

Being right next to the top of the mountain from only steps away to amazing hiking trails this place has it all from supplies to use to a full size game room. I personally can say there's nothing like being in the jacuzzi while it's snowing. Everything being easy to use and right there at your fingertips I'm happy to say I can make this my go to spot for when I return to big bear

Perfect location for our family

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and Christmas with our 3 kids and grandkids in this perfect Big Bear house. It was spacious, comfortable and well laid out; the recreation room upstairs gave the grandkids a place to handout away from the adults. We loved the location and will come back.

Paradise in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Nothing is perfect, but Paradise Pines comes pretty close (as far as vacations and experiences are concerned). We walked in to an absolutely clean home. The kitchen was complete with everything you can think of, the bedrooms were immaculate, the playroom upstairs was in good order. Having 4 bathrooms was incredibly convenient and the layout of the house was very ideal. The location is incredible, close to the edge of the forest, very quiet and a perfect place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of the big city (or even the small city).

However, I did not encounter the peanut loving creatures that were advertised (and yes, the hosts were very generous to leave peanuts for them). This must have been due to a surprise snow shower that came our way on Saturday morning. And there it was, the snowfall, the fresh air, the quiet ambience, Paradise Pines is the perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and recreate . I am quite sure that we will be back, to add more beautiful memories to the ones we made on this vacation.

The beautiful exterior elicited praise from passersby...we noticed that on 2 occasions as we were having breakfast in the cabin, watching and listening to the goings-on outside. But that's not even half...heck, not even 1/10th the story. The interior, though large enough to provide tons of options for sleeping arrangements, feels cozy and warm...and everything is super clean. From the sheets on the bed to the dishes and accessories, this place is super clean. Showers are great, with good flow. They get hot and stay hot. Beds are comfortable. Bunks for the kids (2 sets in one room and another set in another room) and traditional beds through I think 4 other rooms. Kitchen is stocked and the layout spills into the great room which makes for great entertaining/family time. Then there's the game room. Pool, foosball, air hockey and a bar make this the kind of place you NEVER want to leave. But don't forget why you be outdoors. And there is a trailhead right across the street. Although we stayed in the spring, the proximity to the slopes would even allow you to ski directly home after a long day. Above all, there is just a vibe about this place that makes it feel good. It probably comes from the owners who are super generous and whose kindness must have seeped into the cabin itself.
