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.

Best Big Bear Cabin & Trip to Date!

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Big Bear with 2 other families the past 6 years. Always searching for that "perfect cabin". Well, our search is over...we found our cabin!!! Paradise Pines Lodge is AMAZING!!!! Big bedrooms (each couple got their own room). The only 2 girls in the house ages 11 were so excited to get their own bedroom as well. The 5 boys were able to sleep in the double bunk beds room. The kitchen has everything you need. Large den to sit by the fire and watch tv or read. Separate laundry room, HUGE play room / game upstairs where the kids can be kids and have fun (barely saw the kids while inside...)! Nice relaxing hot tub. Big yard to play in the snow, run around and build snowmen! Walk across the street to the National Forest for sledding..super fun! Easy access to grocery stores, ski slopes, ski rental, town, etc... The icing on the cake was the 18" of snow we had. Would highly recommend this cabin for your stay in Big Bear!!!! Ron and Brad "SDSU Buds" are so organized, super friendly, accommodating and very professional home owners! PARADISE PINES LODGE is the place to stay!!!!! Thanks for such a memorable trip to Big Bear yet!!! We will be back next February for sure!!!!

Perfect for group bonding/team building

  • 5 of 5

I'm an avid user of homeaway and have not yet been dissatisfied!

I searched high and low for the perfect home in Big Bear to house a girl scout brownie troop of 6 girls, aged 7-8 and 7 mothers. This home was the perfect size to accommodate every single one of us. The house is separated in two halves: one with most of the bedrooms and living space, with the other half being additional bedrooms and playing space, so it's like having two homes under one roof! There was so much space that we were never cramped.

The home was clean, instructions were clear and owner/manager was responsive and diligent. The girls had plenty to do to keep them busy with all of the game tables, puzzles and hot tub! Sitting out on the deck in the peace and quiet was nice! In addition, the home is right across the street from a hiking trail, which was a super plus being that we were there to entertain a girl scout troop. Though some of the game tables were slightly dilapidated and it took forever to try to figure out how to operate the TV upstairs, we were still very pleased with all of the other amenities.

I would return here without question. Many fun memories made here!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Family fun

  • 5 of 5

My children and grandchildren spent three days at Paradise Pines The house is perfect for a big family with everyone having their own space. Great location to the mountain and the shopping too.

House is fully stocked with just about everything you need. It was clean neat and lots of towels for all.

We will definitely go again Thanks The Porter Family

Best stay we've EVER had in Big Bear

  • 5 of 5

My sister found and booked this wonderful cabin to accommodate our large family. Altogether there were 12 of us including 6 children. What an amazing place to stay with kids and still feel like you've gotten away!! There was so much space to either sit as a family and enjoy a movie or to have the kids play pool, foosball, karaoke.... The cabin is clean, spacious, comfortable and in a perfect geographic location. I can't say enough about how great Paradise Pines is. The kids all cried when we had to leave, so needless to say we'll be making a trip back.

Memories in the snow for kids and friends

  • 5 of 5

My family and I hosted kids and other families for fun in the snow last year in Arrowhead and while we had a great time we had to drive an hour to Big Bear to find snow. This year under what I can only label God's Providence, I stumbled upon Paradise Pines Lodge. I checked a week before our arrival date of 3/4 and found out that this weekend is normally reserved for one of the owners' personal weeks, which he the night before opened due to scheduling conflicts. I can see why he reserves this weekend for his own family as it was a weekend to remember. Sledding in the front yard, snowball fights, snowball launching guns, snowman building and awesome sledding just a a 5 minute walk up the street in the forest for 5 separate sledding trips. I think my youngest son said it best after our 6th tandem sled down the hill this afternoon... "dad we have to get this place again next year at the same time." Thanks Ron for allowing us to call your place home this weekend.
