Overview

Moonridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

Welcome to “The Bird's Nest,” Big Bear Lake’s finest luxury accommodation. When it comes to luxury resort living, our cottage is in a league all its own! Located in the neighborhood known as Lower Moonridge, the cottage is conveniently situated between both ski resorts, making it less than a mile to either Bear Mountain or Snow Summit. But Big Bear Lake is a four-season resort to be enjoyed year-round. The lake, golf course, zoo, shopping and dining are just minutes away.

We purchased this 1940’s cottage in March of 2012 and completed its total renovation in January 2013. Rent the cottage and be one of the first tenants to experience our charming and luxurious abode. No expense was spared in the renovation of our mountain retreat and every item in the cottage was selected or manufactured specifically for the home! Our goal was to provide the nostalgia of the old cottage with luxurious comforts of the new. The Rustic-Luxe decor features Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn furnishings and accessories. Much of the furniture was designed and created especially for this cottage by our own hand-forged wrought iron company known as The Hill Ironworks. The master bedroom features a magnificent and romantic queen size, Four-Poster-Bed dressed in 600 thread-count sheets and duvet cover. Goose-down comforters and numerous down pillows are provided for your ultimate sleeping comfort. The gourmet galley kitchen houses everything one could need including a dishwasher, gas range, under-counter refrigerator, microwave, blender, and toaster plus a Cuisinart K-Cup coffee maker with complimentary gourmet coffee, tea, cider and hot cocoa. High-end electronics including two LCD-HD flat screen TV’s, a Blu-ray Disk Player, IHome docking station with music speakers, high speed wireless internet and cable TV with movie channels will keep you entertained. Our guests will find themselves lounging in the comfortable living room under a cozy faux-fur throw, enjoying the gas-burning fireplace with a complimentary glass of wine in hand. And, the well-appointed bathroom featuring a rain shower head with eight body-jets will sooth ski-weary muscles.

An additional room includes a Daybed/Couch to be enjoyed by day, which then converts into a Twin Bed by night, accommodating 1 additional guest. The cottage is ideally suited for one couple or for a couple with a small child. Given its limited size we like to think of our cottage as similar to a Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Every detail has been meticulously attended to and no amenity has been overlooked in order to make your stay as memorable and comfortable as possible. Please take the one you love to this romantic retreat.

NOTE: We require that you be at least 25 years of age to rent the cottage.

About Celia Becker

My family and I have been part-time mountain residents for over 25 years. Ten years ago we escaped Orange County California for life at a higher elevation and now reside full-time in nearby Lake Arrowhead. We discovered the charms of Big Bear when our son joined the Snow Summit Ski Racing Team. This adorable cottage caught our eye and we decided to buy it as a showcase for my work. I am a Lifestyle Blogger at www.AfterOrangeCounty.com and feature the cottage on my blog where you can view the complete cottage renovation. I am also a designer and manufacturer of hand-forged wrought iron furniture, lighting and decorative accessories. This home showcases much of my work. If you like what you see, most of the ironwork used in the cottage is available for purchase.

Celia Becker purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Celia Becker chose Moonridge

As a native Southern Californian I grew up vacationing in our local mountains and wanted to give the same opportunity to our children. We feel the weight of the world roll off our shoulder's as we approach our charming, cozy get-away. The smell of the pines, the beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains, the invigorating crystal clear air and the proximity to the ski slopes are what we enjoy most.

What makes this cottage unique

If you a a connoisseur of the finer things in life then you will appreciate our efforts to make this cottage the ultimate cozy retreat, full of simple luxuries. It is small and intimate yet comfortable and inviting. Our cottage exudes a warm & serene atmosphere in its intimate spaces. We furnished it using rich earth-tones, soft linens and jute area rugs over rustic wood floors. Layers of details both old and new, modern and traditional make our home the ultimate romantic couples retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanksgiving Adventure

  • 5 of 5
This place is absolutely adorable. We would go back in a heartbeat. It is beautifully decorated and perfectly cozy for anytime of year. We enjoyed staying in and sitting by the fire as much as we did hiking and shopping. The owner was wonderful in making us feel right at home. This was the best rental experience our family has ever had!

Updated and lovely home

  • 5 of 5
As you can read other reviews on the home, you will obviously see that the place is gorgeous. In looking at many properties in Big Bear, nothing is like this place. The decor unites crate and barrel and Williams-Sonoma. Plush seating with warm fixtures makes this a cozy, yet eloquent abode. Proximty to the main roads, lakes, trails and mountain make this a designated spot for my family for years to come...

A WONDERFUL stay at an UNBELIEVABLE Big Bear Lake house!

  • 5 of 5
This house in Moonridge, at Big Bear Lake, is such a romantic setting!
The property owner obviously has a lot of class!
The property has been updated with the very nicest quality furnishings, and almost feels
like you are staying in a museum and a well appointed mountain cabin, no expense was spared!
This was our second annual stay at this property, and we WILL return again.
We stay in the fall to celebrate our anniversary and get the opportunity to see the fall color change.
The property location is PERFECT for all seasons at Big Bear Lake.
Just down the road from Bear Mountain Ski Resort for the Winter months
Very close to Big Bear Lake for all of the summer months festivities.
Simply a WONDERFUL property for a romantic visit year round!
Thank you property owner for sharing this wonderful house!

Rustic Modern Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed at rental cabins in Big Bear before, and none were as nice as the Bird's Nest. This cozy cabin was very comfortable, and relaxing. The cabin has all the essentials to stay in. The kitchen is well stocked with all sorts of cooking devices, and yes - coffee for that lazy late morning. Well styled with nice details throughout, from the remodeled bathroom, iPod speakers in the spare room/tv room, kitchen equipped with Keurig, and club chair seating around the fireplace. The owner is quick to reply on any questions. I would recommend it to another couple looking for a peaceful cozy getaway in Big Bear.
