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 Big Bear Lake

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 snowy weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Sunny Chateau for a long weekend.

Lots of snow and open space around the cabin. Unlike alot of cabins the neighbors are a good distance away and there is a big area for the kids to play in.

Cabin was warm and comfortable. Well equipped kitchen, very large living room. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds and bedding comfortable. Quite close to Big Bear skiing, you can see the runs from the living room window.

Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We are happy to share our second home with families. Our daughter learned to ski in Big Bear and we have so many happy memories at this cabin. Now she is older we can't get up as often as we would like, so it is nice to know others are enjoying this special spot! Wendy Rockwood

Perfect, cozy home for a small family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to take a last min trip to Big Bear and this was one of the few cabins left within our price range. Wendy (the owner) was very responsive even though we were booking at the last minute. The instructions for our stay were pretty straightforward, and if I had any questions she always responded within a reasonable time.

The cabin is pretty much true to the pictures. Some of the fixtures, and furniture are a little outdated, the couch especially has seen it's share of action over the years. However, the bathroom was newly renovated and really nice and there is a flat screen TV in the living room. The stove and the refrigerator are also new. The kitchen was well stocked, there were plenty of dishes, cooking utensils, pots & pans, and spices etc. Also everything worked so we were more than happy.

The best part of the cabin was probably the location. It is next to an empty lot so there is ample open space in the side and back yard. This was perfect my family. We didn't even need to go to the slopes! The kids enjoyed playing in the snow outside all day! To our surprise there were also sleds for us to use in the cabin which we put to good use!

Under the same circumstances we would definitely stay at this cabin again!!!

Perfect for small family of 4

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for us. We love it, and we will definitely want to stay here again. It was very spacious. Big living room, and big bedrooms. Towels and linens were brand new. The kitchen was fully stocked the same as ours at home, so we could cook anything we wanted to. And we could see Bear Mountain ski slopes from the living room.
