Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Upper Moonridge, Moonridge, Big Bear Lake, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.
