Upper Moonridge Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our cabin is within walking distance of the shuttle for Bear Mt.Ski Resort and the Moonridge Zoo and Golf Course! We have a view of Snow Summit resort from deck.

Interlacken Shopping Center is nearby for groceries and a Starbucks too, and other

great places to eat like the old time 'Captain's Anchorage' Steak House, which was owned by Andy

Devine,is just down the street from us.

The Big Bear Village is just a mile and a half down Big Bear Blvd. with great shopping,

lots of good restaurants and two movie theaters too!

We are a 'Pet Friendly' cabin, only 'good dogs' please, oh, and kid friendly too.

They even write us notes telling us how much they like it!

The big bedroom upstairs is a favorite place!

Also the large deck out the back is fun full of snow in winter and in Summer, has a fabulous view

area to relax and BBQ a great meal!


Keywords: 2 story cabin with deck, fenced yard and easy parking and Mt.views.

About Donna DaFoe

Our son Rob was competing in all the snowboarding competitions,'back in the day',as

he would say now! He found this chalet to buy and we all have owned it since then.

We come up as often as we can as we just love the mountains and ambiance of Big Bear!

We live in Summerland, Ca. and have a fabulous ocean view, so we have the best of

both locations!

Donna DaFoe purchased this chalet in 1996

Why Donna DaFoe chose Big Bear Lake

Big Bear Lake is such a fabulous area for sports and relaxation both in the Summer and

Winter! Not to far from LA and the rest of Southern Cal.

What makes this chalet unique

Our cabin is close to ski areas and shopping and the nearby lake for boating and fishing too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your place in Big Bear! A wonderful family reunion

was so much fun at your cozy chalet!! We all had such fun

on the slopes and came in from the cold to a blazing fireplace and hot

chocolates all around!

Quaint and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for Valentines weekend and had a great time. Having a little one year old it was nice to have the amenities of a comfy home. Its pet friendly and it was nice to have two seperate bedrooms for our friends. The owner was very nice and answered all my questions. We will stay here again in the future! Thanks.

  • 5 of 5

Loved that it was so close to the mountain that we didnt have to drive to find parking.. We just walked to the shuttle that took us to big bear. The house was perfect for us sleeps four comfortably and pet friendly.

Cute, clean, convinient

  • 4 of 5

Home was Cute, Clean and very Conviently located. It had a nice fenced yard for our animals. Fireplace and heater kept it nice and warm. Cable available as well as a DVD player. The only downside was that there is no wifi, and the location did not have great reception for us (ATT). We were not able to use our phones. Other than that is was great!!

We decided to go to Big Bear last minute. We had a great time and the place was adorable and in a great location! Our pups loved the fenced in patio. It was clean and cozy. Donna was very accommodating and responsive. We will be back!!
