About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

Enjoy the beauty of the mountains from the view point of this sunny open cabin. Facing south, the sun adorns your stay from just the right angle and the bright cabin is alive with light. Every room has a view of the forest. Located on one of the nicest, quietest streets there is easy access with no stairs to the cabin and a large, flat parking pad. Sunny Chateau is located in Upper Moonridge at 7500 feet, where it snows more often and the snow lasts longer. Well appointed two bedrooms with one bathroom plus one half bath. You can sit in the living room and watch the squirrels and wildlife just outside your door through the full wall of windows. There's also a great snow play area for the kids on the property. Just a short drive to the lake and slopes, but enough away to feel you are in the mountains.

About Wendy Rockwood

Wendy and Chuck are longtime residents of Santa Barbara and Big Bear California. We are happy to share our love of these communities with guests. In fact, that is what makes being vacation rental owners of six properties and managing them ourselves so rewarding. We have made many happy memories in all of our properties (we have lived in each one of them) and can share all the special features and local ideas with guests.

We love gardening, biking around the lake, walks/hikes in the area and spending time with our own family which includes three grown children and five grandchildren and a great granddaughter on the way!

Wendy Rockwood purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Wendy Rockwood chose Moonridge

This was our first purchase in Big Bear. We looked long to find this location and fell in love on the first visit to Sunny Chateau. The open feel of the cabin, flat parking and being on a quiet street were what attracted us right away. It never disappoints and we have had many happy memories in this cabin.

Just a short drive to Snow Summit it was easy to drop off our daughter for the excellent ski school. She learned to ski there and we could be relaxing back at the house ready to go pick her up easily when she is done.

What makes this cabin unique

Cozy, single floor floor plan. It has all the amenities, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fireplace. The deck is great in summer and there is plenty of area for snow play.

With having a direct relationship with the owner/manager you will deal with one person from your booking to any necessary details during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We very much enjoyed our stay at Sunny Chateau. The views were magnificent, the house was cozy and our boys loved exploring the yard. We hope to return one day. Happy New Year!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Sunny Chateau. It was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because it was dusty.

Nice cabin in a desirable location.

  • 4 of 5

The older cabin has many upgrades and is located on a quiet street. We were visited by bluejays, woodpeckers, rabbits and chipmunks. We would rent the cabin again. There is also a drawer full of spices, so don't bother bringing your own.
