BACON PARADISE: 'THE BIGGEST LITTLE CABIN IN BIG BEAR!'

Moonridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cozy, Open Floorplan, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Great Location, Stocked Kitchen

Family Friendly Cabin in Moonridge

Super comfortable, a lot bigger than what it seems.

Sleeps 3-5 (comfortably,) nestled in the pines of Moonridge this cabin features an open floorplan with a large, (stocked,) kitchen; Dinning area, Living family area / 2 'old-school' TV's with Cable / DVD / VCR. High Speed Internet connectivity / Laundry room / Game Room loaded with board games and books to read. We have a Karoke Player as well (for the vocally inclined...until 10:00...)

One large fireplace style wood burning stove in the Living area. Another pot-belly stove in the master bedroom.

All new lighting, floors & carpets throughout.

Outside a large deck in front with swing, BBQ, and seating area to entertain. Spacious ~fully fenced~ back yard with play area for children.

Kitchen: Most vacation rental companies call kitchens 'stocked' by just supplying pots, pans and plates... That is not what we mean...

Our stocked kitchen is stocked with all ammenities you need in a kitchen. Including appliances for baking, salad spinning, mixing, you name it. We have a 'honor system' with food items. You don't have to go to the grocery store and re-stock an entire house with all the condiments. A lot of that will already be stocked in our refridgerator or cupboards. All we ask is if you do use something up, replace it.

There is a trust factor with the games, DVD's, and Karaoke. We know you will treat our house just like you'd treat your own. We have children's size snow suits, ski's, boots, sleds, and tubes anyone can use. 'Mi Casa es Su Casa!' And, you'll keep coming back! Tell your friends and family! We love to share our cabin!

Note: To be 'up-front,' winter months when there is a potential for snow, we include a 'snow removal' fee which is our cost of $45. If it is not necessary to do snow removal, we will refund this fee along with the traditional refund of deposit.

About John and Marilyn Bacon

We are the Bacon's. John, Marilyn, and Joey. We have many pets. 2 dogs, Rusty and Rico; A rabit, 'smoke;' a couple of turtles, a bearded dragon, and a horse 'Kobe'. We do allow ~only~ our dogs to visit the 'BP;' only because they are our dogs and they are 'hair' dogs versus 'fur' dogs. So, people with allergies do not react to usually.

We live in the South Bay area of Southern California.

We love the outdoors, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, horseback riding, and swimming.

John and Marilyn Bacon purchased this cabin in 2012

Why John and Marilyn Bacon chose Moonridge

We purchased our cabin in honor of our beloved father, John W. Bacon (1927-2009,) who would always rent a cabin for us to get together for family reunions. This cabin doesn't hold a lot of people, but it is great for our small family. When our extened family comes around, we have freinds who own cabins nearby so we can all be close.

We purchased this property because we loved the floorplan and proximity to Bear Mountain, Snow Summit and all the local ammenities. It was a fixer-upper and we have done a lot of upgrading to the cabin already. When we bought it, originally, it was all carpeted with ~ugly~ old carpeting. Every room a different color and style. Even the kitchen and bathroom were carpeted. 'Quirky!' Now we installed some new carpeting and appropriately, floors where they should be. The lighting fixtures were 'original' from the 60's, so we had to replace those as well. We also did some structural work on the house. More to come!

What makes this cabin unique

We are in a good neighborhood, and close to EVERYTHING! But, you feel you are still in the rural mountains. Whether it is walking, riding our bikes, driving (and even easy access to the bus;) it's only a short trip. We love being close to the golf course and the Town trail is very close to start a nice hike. Also, most of our neighbors are FANTASTIC!

The open floorplan was especially desirable to us because we could be cooking in the kitchen, playing games in the game room, watching TV in the family room, or just hanging out by the fireplace; all of us can still be together in essentially the same room!

We also fell in love with the curb appeal and charm of our front deck.

We love our big-little 'Bacon-Paradise!'

We have a fun YouTube Video of last year's Winter break:

This gives you a layout in video form of our 'paradise' but flooring upgrades had been done after the video was taken.

Also, new for 2014----FOOSBALL!!!!

Fun Cabin - Great Price - Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
My family and I booked a last minute weekend get-a-way to Big Bear. Stayed at Bacon Paradise and had a great time. John and Marylin, the owners, were in quick communication the morning I inquired about their home. I also spoke with them and text them with a couple of questions while there. Great communication. Fun cabin with lots of stuff to do. Great location in Moonridge. We are looking forward to visiting Bacon Paradise in the future.

Thx again !!

Good Cabin at a good rate.

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the cabin. My kids loved the fosseball table, my hubby enjoyed reading several of the books, the kitchen was fine, and we even enjoyed the karaoke. It had everything anyone really needed for cooking a simple meal. It was also quite close to most of the things we did. The beds were in good condition too.

Fun Cabin

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I did a "couple's retreat," if you will, here and had a great time. The cabin really is the "biggest little cabin in Big Bear." Although it seems small from the outside, it was surprisingly spacious on the inside, especially for the four of us. There were comfortable couches and a lot of room to cook and eat food. It's close to the ski resorts and not far from fishing or hikes. We spent the weekend hiking and fishing during the day, and came back to the cabin grilling food and playing board games we had brought. The porch is also really nice for those long summer days, since you can just sit on their swing chair and relax! I'd recommend this place to any families or smaller groups of friends visiting the area!

A wonderful escape!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this cabin over the summer and had always meant to write a review but never got around to it. Last weekend I stayed at a different cabin in Big Bear rented by my sister-in-law and given to my husband and I as a Christmas gift. After staying in this other cabin I came to realize what a wonderful, comfortable and well appointed this cabin was. The decor was very pleasant and cozy and the cabinets were well stocked. Even though it looks small it actually has everything you need for a great Big Bear vacation. Now I know the only place I will be staying when I go to Big Bear.

Cozy cabin

This was the perfect cabin for a quick family get away! Beds were comfortable and warm, kitchen good sized and nice table for dining. The best part is there were plenty of games to keep kids off phones & iPads!!! We had an awesome 2 day family dart tournament going!! Close to ski resorts and the Village. Highly recommend staying here. We will be back!!

Mountain Getaway in the Trees

  • 5 of 5
The cabin really is bigger than it looks in the picture - four of us stayed there in comfort. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. It is near beautiful hiking trails in the forest, and also close to the lake, where we spent one day kayaking. The town is a short drive away - convenient, but not intrusive. We can't wait to go back again.
