Overview

Moonridge Lodge Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Sleeps 7-8 Treetop Luxury Lodge

Birch Bear Lodge is ready for you! With incredible 180 views of both ski resorts, the Lake and the golf course, you will have a fantastic time at Birch Bear. Two large private decks on both sides of the Lodge: one with a Jacuzzi with color changing lights is nestled in the pines, and a second one with unobstructed 180 views, for eating, relaxing, having drinks and watching the incredible sunsets (seasonal gas grill provided). Birch Bear is a perfect base for both the year round activity athletes, and for those who want spacious relaxation quarters to 'stay inside', read, gaze out at the mountain views or write your first novel! For romantics or those on 'working vacations', Birch Bear is your private treetop hideaway.

The Lodge is a 2280 sq. ft. home, with wireless Wi-Fi, 3 bath, 2 full baths, and a Studio/Game room (also a Queen sleeper with bath). With a huge rock fireplace for a cozy wood burning fire, new luxury furnishings, cozy bedding, granite kitchen, flat screen TV and TVs in all bedrooms (limited cable channels), DVD players, Birch Bear is a luxury mountain home for you and your guests. Gather round the large wooden dining table - there's room for our permanent guests - mascots 'Birch' & 'Bear', giant furry stuffed bears. The Game Room (studio attached to the jacuzzi deck), has a Pool table and Ping Pong, as well as puzzles and games. Plenty of space with room to play or just escape in luxury.

Two car garage plus parking area & 'mud room' for equipment.

Birch Bear is close to Bear Mountain slopes (5 min.), Snow Summit (10 min), snowplay, hiking and biking trails, the Lake (7 min), restaurants, grocery (Von, Stater Bros), and pharmacies (Walgreens, CVS). The Village, with movies and restaurants is 10 min. away.

EARLY CHECK-IN AND LATE CHECK-OUT: We know that you're anxious to get here, and may want to ski/hike on the day you need to check out! Please contact us early with your request and we will try our best to accommodate you. We want to ensure that the Lodge, spa and Game Room are spotless and ready for you, and there is time to do the same for the next guests. There is no extra cost to you - we'll do our best.

About Jacline Evered, La Terre Properties

In early 2012, we stood on the deck of what would become Birch Bear and looked at the 180 degree unobstructed view of the slopes, the Lake, golf course and the whole valley in front of us. It was breathtaking and the most magnificent view in Big Bear. The extensive renovation took 6 months and we look forward to welcoming you to Birch Bear!

Jacline Evered, La Terre Properties purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Jacline Evered, La Terre Properties chose Moonridge

Each year we came to Big Bear to enjoy the mountain air, hike the trails, and enjoy the environment. We found a home that needed a lot of TLC, but the view was worth saving. A lot of hard work followed, a lot of fun and a lot of pride in this fantastic Lodge. Some say Birch Bear has the 'best view in Big Bear' for its 180 degree views of the ski resorts, golf course and the Lake.....from top to bottom, including the new Spa with color changing LED lights and waterfall,its ready for visitors!

What makes this lodge unique

View, view, privacy and views! From pre-dawn sunrise of pink sky, mist covering the Lake like a cotton blanket, clearing to sunny blues skies over glistening snow on Bear Mountain. Slopes with skiers so close you feel you can count them, to the soft white lights winding down the night ski slopes on Snow Summit, to the quiet pines... There is no place like Birch Bear.

Three of my friends and I had a wonderful time over the weekend at Birch Bear Lodge. It's a 5 minute drive from the main road in Big Bear, has a separate building with ping pong and billiards, hot tub, fully furnished kitchen and gas grill. I will definitely be staying here again! Jacline is very friendly, available, and easy to work with.

We had an amazing time in your beautiful home. The views were beautiful and just sitting out on the porch watching the sunset was perfect. We had plenty of room for all of us and the boys loved the game room. We had such a great family weekend, we will definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: Always great to hear about your fabulous time and we're happy to welcome you to the Lodge "family". Eating and relaxing on the decks watching the fabulous sunsets from the top of the mountain is what makes the Lodge so special. We're glad you enjoyed the separate Studio game room - lots of space, privacy and the views makes for a wonderful time. Thanks for writing and please come up again soon! Its an amazing place in snow season too!

Beautiful Views, Comfortable Bedding

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Birch Bear Lodge! This was the first year our family has stayed in this cabin and we were not disappointed with the location and were actually AMAZED by the beautiful views from the balcony's on the property. The pictures do not do the views or the spa location justice. The spa overlooking the pines and Bear Mountain was a wonderful respite. The interior of the main cabin is nicely decorated with newly remodeled bathrooms that are very large and well appointed, bedding that feels as soft and warm as a puffy cloud on a sunny day and a kitchen that has everything you could possibly need available.
The gameroom/garage apartment was perfect for my 15 year old son and his friend. They were able to hook up there gaming system, have their own bathroom, sink, enjoy pool and ping pong PLUS sleep in there on the futon and pull out hide-a-bed. It is a great space for teens and adults alike. We joined them for lots of games of pool and ping pong. Fortunately the weather was nice as the only negative of the property is the steep driveway. We have a large four wheel drive truck that was VERY difficult to turn around at the top of the drive even utilizing the garage space. Had the weather conditions been icy and snowy, the driveway would have been impossible, if not dangerous, for us to navigate. Also, the detailed instructions provided in the rental manual were very specific and detailed, however, the multitude of notes around the house serving as gentle reminders for a variety of owner preferences were a little unnerving and made it a bit difficult to relax (*** This could just be me as I did not want to do anything that was against the owners preference out of respect for their lovely property). Besides those two small items ( and some people in the cabin behind us that were loudly partying ALL NIGHT LONG - which we didn't mind, but some people might) this cabin is beautiful, perfectly located with stunning views, every amenity one could need (including a grill we were able to take advantage of thanks to the weather) and a property that is obviously thoughtfully cared for and prepared for their guests.

Owner's Response: We're happy that you and your family - from teens to adults - had a fantastic time at Birch Bear and hope you will come and visit again soon. During the winter, we have a Sno-Removal service that keeps our drive cleared of ice and snow after storms. Its also south facing, so that any drifts during the day melt off quickly. During the last winter season, we welcomed many guests in heavy snow and weren't aware of anyone having any problems using our new driveway and stairs. The homes in Big Bear are strictly regulated for safety and Birch Bear is approved for 3 cars parking off the street. The Lodge has the 2 car garage and parking for a 3rd car. The views and spa will be waiting for you again next time - see you soon!

PERFECT CABIN GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Birch Bear Lodge was everything and more that my fiance and I were looking foward to. From the moment we drove up the beautiful long driveway, this cabin to so well kept up! We enjoyed playing a few games of pool and ping pong in the game room, listening to music and having a good time. The jacuzzi was such a plus!...it was so nice to sit in the jacuzzi and look out to the beautiful mountians! My fiance lived in Big Bear and said that this cabin by far has the best view in Big Bear! Oh ya we slept in the upstairs bedroom and that bed!...wow SO comfy! We will definitly be coming back! The owners were also very helpful with any question we had.

The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5
This review comes late but still so well deserved. Birch Bear is the perfect place. We stayed here with another family and with 4 kids amongst us (and all the gear that comes with that), there was plenty of room for all. The location, the view and the accommodations were perfect. We hardly wanted to leave the place because we had everything. The owners had thought of every detail to make our stay perfect. And if that wasn't enough, when our 6 year old left behind her favorite stuffed animal, Jacline immediately overnighted it to us.
We can't imagine staying any place else on our next Big Bear trip. Thank You!

Owner's Response: Hello from Birch and Bear, our mascots! We're so glad you had a wonderful stay and the Lodge is now your home too. We're gearing up for a new season and looking forward to the beautiful snow for your next ski trip. The Lodge has been landscaped this summer and the snow on all spruce, aspens and pine trees will make sitting in the spa all the more beautiful. Thank you for coming and we hope to see all of you next season. Thanks too for your 5 Star review - we want the Lodge to be perfect for you every time!

Awesome accommodations for two families!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great two night stay at at Birch Bear with our only complaint being that our time there went by too fast! The owners have put a lot of time and thought into stocking the house and making it feel homey. There wasn't a single thing that wasn't covered. We had plenty of room for two families to spread out when needed but the favorite gathering places were the game room, large comfy sectional couch and the kitchen table for a lively game of Hearts! The view was incredible during the day, and we also enjoyed seeing the night skiing at Snow Summit. We all agreed it would be fun to return in the summer as well, fingers crossed we will!
