Overview

Lower Moonridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bathrooms, 2 Bedrooms, (Sleeps 8) Walk to Bear Mountain & Forrest

Our darling family cabin is located just a short walk to Bear Mountain Ski Resort and a short 5 minute drive into the Village. We chose this home specifically because it was close enough for the kids to walk to the lifts and comfortable enough for those who choose to stay behind. Our Cabin was completely remodeled a couple years ago with high-end appliances and everything is brand new. We supply all of the sheets, towels, cookware, dishes and small appliances. There is a microwave, dishwasher, gas range and fridge with an ice maker. Our Cabin will accommodate families or groups of up to 8 guests.

Relax in front of the cozy fireplace in the family room, check your emails with the free WiFi, watch a movie on one of the 2 TV's (with free cable), soak in one of the 2 Jacuzzi bathtubs, lay in bed and enjoy a warm fire from the fireplace in the master bedroom and let the kids play in the snow in the fenced backyard.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

About Michele Vaughn

My sister and I live in Orange County with our husbands and teenaged kids. We learned to ski at an early age where our family frequently traveled to Mammoth to enjoy skiing. However, as we grew up and took jobs it became increasingly difficult to make the 5 hour road trip to Mammoth. To our surprise the skiing in Big Bear was great and the drive was so short that we were perfectly relaxed when we arrived. Now our kids are skiers and we can share our love of skiing with them too.

Michele Vaughn purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Michele Vaughn chose Big Bear Lake

We own another larger home in Big Bear that sleeps 20 guests and we frequently received requests from our return guests seeking a smaller property for a smaller group. After looking at many, many properties we choose this home due to close proximity to Bear Mountain (walking distance) and the excellent floor plan.

What makes this cabin unique

Since we often travel with other families we knew what makes a comfortable vacation rental home. We love this home not just because the location but the easy access entry level (just 3 stairs to the front door), there is parking for 2 cars in the driveway, there are 3 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and everything is new! We put a lot of thought into decorating this home and all furnishings are of the highest quality. The photos don't do our home justice since you can't photograph comfort!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cabin is clean, comfortable and cozy and kept us very warm at night. It is perfectly located just a few minutes from both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit. Also just a few minutes from the main drag and restaurants. The owners were great to work with, very friendly and prompt in their communications. We will definitely look to return here on our next ski trip up to Big Bear. The outside area also looked lovely for a summer day barbeque, but with afternoon temps in the 20s we didn't try it.

Beautiful & Comfortable Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and your house was the perfect cabin for our couples get away. Your home was quiet and the neighborhood serene. I loved the romantic fireplace in the Master bedroom and the Jacuzzi tubs were great too. It was so nice to have the extra fireplace to retreat to at the end of the day. I can't think of anytying I would add to your cabin because you have thought of everything. By the way, I loved the designer bedding--it was so comfortable.

This was our second time staying at The Warming Hut. We love this cabin. It is very easy to find, great location next to the golf course and Bear mountain. The cabin very clean, well decorated and comfortable. I highly recommend The Warming Hut!

GREAT property!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the 4th of July weekend at this property, and couldn't have been more pleased. We have used VRBO for years and stayed in many different homes, this home was certainly one of most enjoyable. The description is 100% accurate (which we appreciate very much), the check-in/check-out is very easy, and the "extras" provided were perfect touches to this already beautiful home. My husband, my adult son and his girlfriend had plenty of privacy in the 2 bedrooms (each with full bathrooms), and plenty of shared living space in the family room and kitchen/eating area. There are 2 rollaways and lots of extra linens, so you could definitely have more than 4 people. The deck isn't large, but adequate for 4+, and we played dice on the front patio at the great pine benches and table. The home is so well appointed, everything is in excellent condition, and the linens are all upgraded (great sheets, pillows and very plush towels). This house came stocked with TP, paper towels, dish soap, hand soap, toiletries in the bathroom (even Qtips!). The wifi worked great, the satellite TV was nice to have, there is a very easy alarm system to arm the home...... it simply has everything!

The location is nice, it's up in the pines on the hill, but just a quick drive to the lake, the village and the ski area. We had a great dinner at the Peppercorn Grille and also enjoyed The Pines..... Fireworks on the lake were the best!

We really wouldn't hesitate to stay at The Warming Hut again..... Thanks Michelle!

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa, We are thrilled that you and your family had a great time during your stay at The Warming Hut and that you were able to enjoy our beautiful mountains. Big Bear is a special place to our family and we love being able to share it with our guests. I hope you and your family will be returning again soon and thank you again for choosing to stay with us. Sincerely, Michele

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the cabin over the Valentines/Presdient's Day weekend (2/13 - 2/16/16) and I can say that we were extremely pleased. Cabin was just what was presented online. Place was in great shape, clean, and modern. Nothing was broken, dirty, or in need of maintenance. Location was perfect - Bear Mountain is in walking distance (we walked it a couple of times so we didn't have to haggle with the over-crowded parking lot). The Village and the Snow Summit was a short drive as well. Owners were great, helpful, and very accommodating. We look forward to renting their other properties. We also highly recommend this property. Mahalo and Aloha!

Owner's Response: Dear Ben, Please accept my apologies for not responding sooner. I appreciate you taking the time to give The Warming Hut such a glowing review. I do my best to try to anticipate and provide our guests with the best possible vacation experience. We actually purchased this home due to it's closeness to Bear Mountain and our ability to walk to the resort. We loved the upgrades on the interior but the rustic look of the exterior. I hope you will be staying with us again come this winter! Mahalo for staying with us. Sincerely, Michele

Great Location and Terrific Owners

  • 5 of 5

The owner went above and beyond in her communication and effort to make our stay wonderful. Place is very cute and is close to the slopes at Big Bear.

Things to know going in:

The driveway is shallow. If you have a full size truck, you will extend a bit in to the road. That was not a problem for my stay.

The mattresses are not the most comfortable.

The criticisms are meant to be not picky. That's why I still gave 5 stars. We will likely be back.

Safe travels!
