About Jill or Rob Ogan

Our family after a restful weekend in BIG BEAR!!!

Jill or Rob Ogan purchased this house in 2005

Why Jill or Rob Ogan chose Big Bear Lake

We bought our original home in Big Bear in 2003. It has kept our family close - it is a blast to be on the mountain or on the lake with my family...

What makes this house unique

Our home was built in 2005. This spacious 2200 sq home is located in Moonridge area in Big Bear Lake, California. It has all the amenities you would ever need. Walking distance to Bear Mountain ski slopes, the Moonridge Zoo. We extended our back deck the full width of the home - it is huge. Plenty of space to relax. We have an open field in the back for building a snowman, a gorge right there for sledding. No need to pack up the kids and pay for snow play ...just walk off the back deck!

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you & your family for letting us use your cabin. It was a wonderful Christmas & we had sooo much fun! We have so many memories to take from the trip. My brothers family & mine all agree this was by far the best vacation EVER!! I hope you & your family had a great Christmas & have a Happy New YEAR. Look forward to renting again in the future, God Bless

Perfect family cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this beautiful, spacious home. The location is perfect; close to town, close to Bear Mountain. We loved the hill behind the home. It is just steps to all day sledding fun! We never had to leave the house! The big yard was perfect for building snowmen and snow forts. Jill was amazing to work with. She was in constant communication and makes you feel like family. We will definitely be back!

The perfect family vacation home. Extremely close to bear mountain. Very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the dancing bear. The owner was very accommodating and communicated extremely well. The home was very clean and was stocked with everything needed to cook meals. The single story open layout of the home was perfect for two families with small children. The kids enjoyed sledding in the backward, and bear mountain resort was conveniently close. We highly recommend this home and the home owner 100%, and we will definitely be back.

We had an amazing time with the family, the cabin has everything we need, very spacious, clean and the best part was the backyard because it was only a few steps away to go sledding. Also the rent was easy and the communication with Jill, the owner, was excellent. I highly recommend the cabin.

This was such a great property!! The location was IDEAL for us who wanted to snowboard. It was perfect for our party of 9. The foosball table was a huge hit. We loved the open layout and the beautiful backyard. We will definitely try and stay here again on our next trip to big bear! It truly made my birthday weekend a huge success.
