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.

Relaxing retreat

  • of 5
Found this lovely little property on VRBO for Thanksgiving weekend 2014. Property was as described and fit the needs for my wife and I. Property was very modern, clean and with the essentials required for a nice 3 night get away. The property has two gas operated fireplaces which was a nice treat for the winter weather Big Bear nights. Would stay here another trip.

Fantastic stay and very satisfied!

Customer service makes a huge difference when staying anywhere, especially on vacation. Michele was charming, honest, and straight forward right from the beginning. The Warming Hut was just like, if not better, than the pictures. The place was warm, cozy, and spacious. With so many cabins in Big Bear to choose from, this one is a great deal for what you get. Thanks Michele! Our stay was fantastic!

Perfect Big Bear Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I just stayed here a couple months ago and was very impressed with the cabin. I was looking for something cozy, clean, with a cabin-feel and this fit perfectly. The owners are very easy to work with and offer specials at times that can't be beat. The cabin and was beautiful....close to hiking and the zoo. We had 3 people staying here and it felt spacious with the two bedrooms and three bathrooms. We enjoyed the fantastic deck space overlooking the trees. We had a great time and would definitely come back again!

Great place, great trip.

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I had a really nice long weekend in the warming hut. While we were just two it would sleep 4 very comfortably or could squeeze in someone downstairs too on the very comfortable couch. The owners offer plenty of tips, pamphlets, etc which was really helpful. I was very pleasantly surprised especially for the cost. Only small improvement points would be to have some additional staples stocked such as sugar for coffee and condiments, as well as having curtains on top of the blinds upstairs (we hung a dark sheet which did the trick for the bright mornings). Really good location and very peaceful. We hope to return next summer!

Owner's Response: Hi Michael, Thanks for taking the time to review our Warming Hut cabin and we're glad that you had a great time. We take all of our guests suggestions seriously and you gave us a couple great suggestions. We have added your recommended staple items (Flour, Sugar, Spices, Oil) to our kitchen supplies available to our guests. Regarding the sunlight coming into master bedroom window in the mornings, it is a blessing and a curse. Of course we love having a light and bright cabin but on some mornings the sun light just pours into the Master bedroom. I will be installing curtains over the blinds for a little extra coverage. Again, I'm glad that you had a great time in Big Bear and we hope you will be returning soon. Sincerely, Michele

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.

Again, thank you for staying with us.
