Moonridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bathrooms, 2 Bedrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Our darling family cabin is located just a short walk to Bear Mountain Ski Resort and a short 5 minute drive into the Village. We chose this home specifically because it was close enough for the kids to walk to the lifts and comfortable enough for those who choose to stay behind. Our Cabin was completely remodeled a couple years ago with high-end appliances and everything is brand new. We supply all of the sheets, towels, cookware, dishes and small appliances. There is a microwave, dishwasher, gas range and fridge with an ice maker. Our Cabin will accommodate families or groups of up to 8 guests.

Relax in front of the cozy fireplace in the family room, check your emails with the free WiFi, watch a movie on one of the 2 TV's (with free cable), soak in one of the 2 Jacuzzi bathtubs, lay in bed and enjoy a warm fire from the fireplace in the master bedroom and let the kids play in the snow in the fenced backyard.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Michele Vaughn

My sister and I live in Orange County with our husbands and teenaged kids. We learned to ski at an early age where our family frequently traveled to Mammoth to enjoy skiing. However, as we grew up and took jobs it became increasingly difficult to make the 5 hour road trip to Mammoth. To our surprise the skiing in Big Bear was great and the drive was so short that we were perfectly relaxed when we arrived. Now our kids are skiers and we can share our love of skiing with them too.

Michele Vaughn purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Michele Vaughn chose Moonridge

We own another larger home in Big Bear that sleeps 20 guests and we frequently received requests from our return guests seeking a smaller property for a smaller group. After looking at many, many properties we choose this home due to close proximity to Bear Mountain (walking distance) and the excellent floor plan.

What makes this cabin unique

Since we often travel with other families we knew what makes a comfortable vacation rental home. We love this home not just because the location but the easy access entry level (just 3 stairs to the front door), there is parking for 2 cars in the driveway, there are 3 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and everything is new! We put a lot of thought into decorating this home and all furnishings are of the highest quality. The photos don't do our home justice since you can't photograph comfort!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is clean, comfortable and cozy and kept us very warm at night. It is perfectly located just a few minutes from both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Also just a few minutes from the main drag and restaurants. The owners were great to work with, very friendly and prompt in their communications. We will definitely look to return here on our next ski trip up to Big Bear. The outside area also looked lovely for a summer day barbeque, but with afternoon temps in the 20s we didn't try it.

Cream of the Crop

  • 5 of 5
This property exceeded expectations and what the photos could display. It was clean, comfortable and set up as an appropriate rental (info posted near heat system/alarm system/checkout details on fridge, manual for staying in Big Bear). The decor was tasteful, quality, and fit the space. I went up for a girls weekend and the 6 of us fit perfectly from having happy hour on the deck to late night talking on the sectional. There are 3 decent sized bathrooms and on-sight laundry was nice to have.

After renting numerous times, I appreciate when owners supply some basics: toilet paper, hand soap, salt-n-pepper, trash bags, etc. Michelle answered all my questions immediately and was helpful throughout.

I highly recommend this property or other properties from this owner. It was one of my best experiences through VRBO yet.

Perfect Summer Escape in Big Bear

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is like new on the inside, great details and furnishings. The ceilings have beautiful wood beams throughout. The kitchen appliances and washer/dryer are top notch. We really enjoyed coming "home" to two gas fireplaces and watching DVDs on the mounted flatscreen tv above the family room fireplace. There are several Redbox locations and two major grocery stores (Vons and Stater Bros.) 5 minutes from the cabin. The owner was very easy to get a hold of when we asked to stay an extra night.

Wonderful and Charming Cabin with all the extras plus more!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful, charming, and cozy cabin with all the extra amenities to make it the PERFECT weekend getaway.

Interior: The cabin was clean and well maintained with modern furniture and appliances. Room were decorated in a delightful cabin "style" decor with wood interior walls (not cheap paneling or plywood), plush carpeting, ceiling fans, and stylish bathrooms. Rooms were airy and bright, not stuffy or dingy. Full security system.

Exterior and Location: Convenient parking and easy access to all the surrounding attractions such as the Zoo (definitely worth the visit), golf course, and shopping. A very relaxed setting in a nice neighborhood (Moonridge area). Pleasant view of the trees and surrounding area. Two decks (front and back).

Customer Service: There was a minor miscommunication with our trip and the owners went above and beyond with their quick response in making sure everything was taken care of. I would definitely stay at this cozy cabin again on our next trip to Big Bear Lake.

Thanks for a most enjoyable weekend.

Nice furnishings but hot and noisy

  • 3 of 5
The pictures are very representative of the interior of the cabin. Very well done and nice. The top floor bedrooms get very hot and there is no way to cool them down in the summer. No air flow even with the windows wide open. It was probably 80 degrees in the bedroom at 2 in the morning the first night. The second day the temperature in Big Bear was about 73 so the bedrooms stayed cooler. There is also a pit bull next door that barks pretty frequently. If neither of those things would bother you, then I recommend this cabin.

Owner's Response: Hi Cindy, Thank you for staying with us at the Warming Hut and we hope you enjoyed your time in our beautiful mountains. Unfortunately your stay happened to coincide with a record heatwave we had up in Big Bear and it was much hotter than normal. We installed ceiling fans in the bedroom for these rare occasions and the comfort of our guests. Regarding a dog barking I wish you would have called me so I could have addressed the issue with the owner. It is very important to me that all of our guests have a great vacation and positive experience. Sincerely, Michele

Charming cabin close to everything

  • 5 of 5
Updated and feeling fresh cabin. We found that having bathrooms in each bedroom and a separate one downstairs was very convenient. The cabin is surrounded by mature pines so you get the feel of being deep in the woods, which was what we wanted; but it's also incredibly close to all you need to be close to in Big Bear

Not walking distance

  • 3 of 5
We were trying to find a place to stay that we could access by skis right from Bear mountain. This did not have the location that was described by the owner which was very disappointing. Every place is technically walking distance if you have the time.

Owner's Response: Hi Kim, I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the location of our home. Our family and other guests find our location to be very convenient and a short walk to the lifts. I do not advertise our home to be be ski in or ski out as no such properties exist at Bear Mountain. The exact distance from our front door to Bear Mountain is .3 miles according to Google Maps and as represented on our VRBO listing map. Also, there is a free shuttle pick up at the end of our street. I am sorry you were disappointed but hope you still had a good time during your stay in Big Bear.
