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!!!!

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.

Perfect Family Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this cabin 4 times now and will keep coming back. The layout is perfect for families with children and teens. The upstairs game room offers the kids their own space to hang out, play pool, foosball, and air hockey, leaving the downstairs for adult time. The kitchen is well stocked with all your cooking needs. We love the location being just across the street from the national forest to take hikes and play in the snow...Upper Moonridge is quiet and peaceful. The cabin is a short drive to the ski slopes. Ron and Brad are very friendly and it has been a pleasure renting from them each year.

This hugh gorgeous cabin is the perfect family vacation rental. When you are traveling with five children ages from 1-12 you need to all have space ! The children love having the game room upstairs with a pool table, foosball, air hockey and big comfy couches and TV. The bedrooms are very nice and the kids have bunk beds in two different rooms. The hot tub is perfect after a day in the snow. and the kitchen and family room are very warm and inviting. After our first visit in 2015, our kids insisted we ONLY come back if we could stay at Paradise Pines!!! Need I say more..... We have made this our Big Bear family tradition. Brad is great to work with and made sure all our questions were answered before arrival .
