BLUE SPRUCE CHALET -- RUSTIC ALPINE CHARM AND BREATHTAKING VIEWS!!

Moonridge Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Perched high on a ridge, Blue Spruce Chalet offers spectacular views from huge decks and seemingly-endless windows along with beautiful rustic decor and modern amenities! Come on up and barbecue on the spacious upper deck as you delight in the splendid alpine views under crystal-blue skies. Soak in a bubbling jacuzzi on the secluded lower deck while gazing at surrounding evergreens. (In winter, this is a great place to enjoy a snowstorm!) When you don't feel like barbecuing, the fully stocked kitchen and large dining room make for satisfying meals. Play a few games at the air hockey table, then snuggle up with loved ones in the beautiful, cozy living room in front of a blazing fire. Don't miss out on the amazing night skies, filled with billions of stars. Make memories that will be forever cherished! Your delight is my goal!

I discovered this wonderful house when I needed to retreat from life in the fast lane. Walking by the lake, hiking on the trails, and watching the morning come while drinking coffee on the deck filled me with joy and renewed my spirit. When I needed to return to city life, I just couldn't sell my dream home -- one day, I'll move back for good. I always enjoyed sharing my home with friends and neighbors, so making it a vacation cabin has been a pleasure.

Marta Neely purchased this chalet in 2005

I had no intention of buying a cabin the day I came up to look at a few properties 'just for the heck of it.' This cabin was the first one I saw -- when we arrived at the next property, I told the realtor, 'Stop! I want that one I just looked at!' The amazing views and the inviting rustic interior were exactly what I wanted, even though I didn't know it until I walked through the front door and saw the mountain views through the windows!

Luxury and comfort combined with rustic charm make this a wonderful place to enjoy life, but the magnificent views from huge decks are what truly makes this chalet unique!

I often skip the reviews because I do not know what to say. But staying in this cabin turned out to be the greatest vacation we could have taken. The cabin is very nice, and I cannot say enough about Marta, the owner of the cabin. Kitchen was great with everything you need to prepare meals, living room was spacious with comfortable furniture. All three bedrooms were very nice and clean, beds were very comfortable. Enjoyed the jacuzzi all weekend, and spent most of the week-end on both lower and upper decks enjoing the scenery playing cards and dominoes, soaking in the sunshine and scenery.. Barbecued steaks and ribs, everything was provided including propane with spare tank and all the cooking utensils. Cosy fireplace, very nice clean bathrooms and bedrooms, washer and dryer were great, we were not expecting that. Met the owner upon arrival, you could not meet a nicer person, she made us feel very comfortable. If you are looking for a nice clean cabin in a nice neighborhood in the Big Bear area, I very much recommend this one. Many times we have been disappointed after arriving at a place after just looking at pictures, but without a doubt, this is one of the greatest places we have ever stayed at. Excellent if you have children because of bunk beds in the large bedroom and the proximity to stores and food on Big Bear Boulevard. If you are looking for a great getaway in the Big Bear area, you just found it. Look no further, just book this cabin and enjoy. Marta was available via phone to take care of any problems, but we had none. Everything in the cabin worked as advertised. We are already checking our calendar to see when we can come back and enjoy this cabin. Thank you Marta for your hospitality, my wife and guests all agree we want to make this cabin an annual event for our birthdays in September........................Enjoy

PERFECT HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Blue Spruce for over a week during the early part of June. The chalet is well equipped with cable TVs, DVDs and culinary needs. Beautifully decorated with a forest theme, in keeping with the wonderful pine forest views from the living room and balconies. Well looked after hot tub, enjoyed after some warm, relaxing days out. Good visits nearby such as the local zoo, nice hiking walks, fishing in Boulder Bay, fun alpine slide and water slides, lovely local park by the lake, perfect for flying a kite of a blowy day! Wonderful drives in and out of Big bear, fantastic views. 1hr to Splash Kingdom - great water park, 2 hours to LA to do a Hollywood tour. To top it off, Marta was lovely and very accommodating. Will hope to be back during the winter months.

I loved the double decks and the view was amazing! Marta (the owner) was great as well, she made me feel very welcomed and had a great energy about her. Id come to this cabin anytime I visit big bear!

Owner's Response: Great reviews like this are the best rewards for the effort we put into making our guests feel welcome and comfortable! We want to know that you and your families and friends will have wonderful memories of the awesome views from the two decks -- barbecuing and enjoying the sun on the upper deck, or relaxing in the Jacuzzi and cool shade on the lower deck -- and then gathering inside to warm up in front of a blazing fire, watch movies, play foosball, or have dessert and coffee in the spacious dining room. Now, just don't wait too long before coming back for another visit!

AMAZING VIEW, WARM AND FUN

  • 5 of 5
Our family hard a great time at this comfortable and charming cabin. We played foosball, enjoyed the Jacuzzi and most of all took in the gorgeous views from the deck. Martha the owner was great and even got us in a little early with check in. We definitely plan on staying at the Blue Spruce Chalet again very soon.

Owner's Response: Our guests tell us -- and we agree -- that from this time of year to early fall is the best time to enjoy the crystal-blue skies and green mountains from the huge upper deck! The cool mornings and evenings are perfect bookends for warm, sunny afternoons. No matter what time of day, the jacuzzi on the large lower deck is a popular place for a relaxing soak while gazing at the mountains -- in the mornings, the sounds of birds accompany the idyllic scenery! And don't forget your telescope -- you won't believe how many stars you can see from the upper deck!

BIRTHDAY AND FAMILY TIME GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
My siblings and a couple of friends stayed at Marta's cabin, and we had one of the best vacations in a long time! The cabin is very cozy with much character. The deck has the best view in the mountain, and we concluded this after a nice stroll in the neighborhood during the early afternoon! Located conveniently to convenient store, gas stations, etc.
The kitchen is great, spacious and open to the living area. It was very nice to have a couple of people barbecuing, a couple watching movies (they have a GREAT collection of DVDs) and someone in the kitchen and still feel like you are part of what everyone is doing because of the layout. Downstairs, the bedrooms were spacious, comfortable.
There is also a bathroom upstairs which is convenient.
The Jacuzzi overlooks a beautiful beautiful view and was great for a quick morning dip!
Everything was provided for BBQing and meals. The big kitchen table was envying for family dinners before a night of board games and movies.
One of the days we even went ziplining!
Marta was available via a quick phone call and so helpful! There is a well thought out nice binder with information about everything, so it was easy to quickly look up what you need to do when you get in and when you leave!
The two best parts of the cabin are the deck and the fireplace! we enjoyed a nice fire while watching movies. We also played a couple of games of foosball.
Thank you Marta for such a warm and welcoming cabin! we are already looking forward to our next visit!

WONDERFUL CABIN! AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

Blue Spruce Chalet surpassed all of our expectations! We read all the great reviews,
but we still were not prepared for how amazing this cabin is. The incredible
views from the large upper and lower decks were enjoyed by all of us,
and especially enjoying the private Jacuzzi on the lower deck after having a delicious
barbecue on the upper deck. The cabin is so well decorated – rustic décor and wildlife
art was everywhere -- yet there are also modern appliances to make the cabin more
comfortable. The meals we had in the living room were enjoyable due to the amazing
views from the large windows, as well as the romantic lighting. The large rock fireplace
made relaxing in the living room warm and cozy, and watching a movie from the large DVD
collection was a perfect ending to a busy day. The cabin was super clean and
the hosts, Sam and Marta, were delightful to work with. My friend and I were truly very happy with our stay.
We will come back very soon!

Blue Spruce Chalet is 5-10 minutes away from all of the exciting recreational opportunities on the mountain!! Go for the gusto -- zip lining over the spectacular valleys near California's highest peak! Big Bear Lake has wonderful hiking trails -- you can even connect with the famous Pacific Crest Trail. The lake is a gorgeous site throughout the year. In the summer, go power boating, jet skiing, sailing, or even parasailing! Walk or bike for miles along the lake on a paved path -- those with binoculars might see eagles! The Discovery Center is a great place to learn about the area's native plants and wildlife. Get close to Grizzly and black bears, cougars, bobcats, wolves, and many other animals at the must-see Big Bear (Rescue) Zoo -- one of the top alpine zoos in the world! Stargazers will be thrilled with the billions of stars visible in the night sky! When summer changes to fall, enjoy the bright colors of changing leaves. The invigorating cool, crisp air is ideal for hiking, biking, and brisk walks along the lake. In wintertime, bundle up for downhill/ cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and sledding/ tubing down the breathtaking Alpine Slide! Bring the kids for the outdoor experience of a lifetime! Don't miss the excitement in the downtown Village -- take a ride in a horse drawn carriage, drink hot chocolate as the huge Christmas tree lights up, and visit shops and restaurants filled with Christmas cheer! Alas, when winter ends, spring awakens with bursting blooms and chirping birds. Dust off the hiking boots, unpack the golf clubs and fishing gear, and don't forget the kites and Frisbee -- cool, breezy days and fresh mountain air will lift your spirits as a glorious new season arrives in Southern California's alpine paradise -- sunny Big Bear Lake!
