About Chris/Mary Baez

My wife Mary and I (Chris) have lived in Orange County for many yrs and it has been a dream of ours to one day own a Cabin in the mountains to be able to visit year round and for our girls to enjoy all the seasons. In addition we wanted to create unique experiences and special memories as a family. With the city of Big Bear being just a short 2 hour drive away it has given us and our 2 girls a opportunity to just getaway from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. It's a blessing to able to enjoy life, nature and just relax in a stress free environment that being in the mountains provides which also strengthens our family bond .

Chris/Mary Baez purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Chris/Mary Baez chose Moonridge

We kept our eye on the real estate market in Big Bear the last few years hoping to find that special and unique property. One such property that would give us a feeling that the moment we stepped into it we would know and feel that "This is the one". We viewed many properties and it wasn't until we drove up and stepped into the Storybook Manor that Mary and I knew it had everything we had dreamed of: great views, lots of privacy, and a beautiful log style cabin that is set back just far enough from the road that you feel swept away into the mountains. It has plenty of room for friends, family, and has all the charm of a well built mountain home, but we also love and appreciate that it has all the comforts of our home in the city: well appointed kitchen, modern bathrooms, new beds, mattresses, linens, a top-of-the-line hot tub, and billiard room, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

Large property that is fully fenced in and well separated from left to right of the neighbors - an ideal playground for children and adults alike. Two large front porches (upper and lower) provide beautiful unobstructed mountain views from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom and decks. Minutes to all the main attractions of Big Bear: Skiing, tubing, water slides, dining, shopping, golfing, zoo, lake, etc.). Fully stocked renovated kitchen with new appliances and granite counters. Granite counter tops in all the bathrooms. Comfortable beds and new linens. New outdoor hot tub. Separate billiard room. Three flat screen TVs (master bedroom, billiard room, and main living room). Private sled hill for kids and the young at heart. Across the street from hiking trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I spent my 30th Birthday here in January and it was amazing. Mary and Chris were easy to get in contact if I needed anything. The cabin was clean and spacious. We had everything we needed while staying here. It's close to the stores which was nice. I would stay here again.

Couldn't have been happier!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Storybook Manor. Loved the private. It was an easy drive down to The Village and there is a beautiful nature trail at the end of the street.

The cottage was well stocked and the kitchen table was just perfect for our family of eight. We enjoyed the waffle maker. It was so easy to use and such a special treat to have Belgium waffles for breakfast.

Chris and Mary were so very attentive to our every need....going so far as to put up a banner for my 70th birthday along with flowers and wine. Any question or concern was addressed within minutes.

Thank you, Mary and Chris, for making my celebration with my family a very memorable one.

Property was turn key and very well maintained. It actually was better than the photos.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked this property for a nice quiet getaway. It was extremely clean and well furnished. Very quiet location a short distance from town. Chris was very helpful in getting us all the information ahead of time. We can't wait to come back with the rest of the family and share the experience with them hopefully this winter! Very family friendly residence in addition to being a great little trip for peace and quiet if you're looking to getaway with your spouse. Highly recommended and the property is even better in person. No snow when I went, but the property would be awesome for kids with snow on the grounds. Will definitely book again. Zero complaints only compliments!

Spacious, Secluded, and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Storybook Manor was the perfect home away for our family of 6 adults and 4 children. We had plenty of room for everyone to enjoy their time without tripping over each other. The pool table and spa were big hits with everyone. The home is spacious and well stocked with everything we needed. Sitting out on the front deck in the morning with the quiet and trees were serenity defined. And the spa in the evenings was the perfect way to relax at the end the day. The owners were extremely accommodating and a pleasure to work with. We will be back.

One of the most private properties in Big Bear.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house and the privacy of the property allowed us to enjoy the backyard patio and hot tub with our grandchildren. The house was very comfortable for our extended family of nine and it was very convenient to the lake activities and shopping district. Chris and Mary were very accommodating to any request that we had. The property was maintained very well And had a pool table and many table games that occupied many hours of our time. An added benefit was that we were able to fit all nine of our family members around the dining room table at dinner time. Thank you Chris and Mary for allowing us to have a wonderful vacation in your house.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joseph you all were great. Privacy being Just one of the many great things about our Storybook Manor. Located on a one acre lot you have complete Privacy from any of the surrounding Cabins. In addition You really don't have to drive anywhere. Hiking trail steps away and sledding on the property during snow season. If you did shopping and village just 7 mins away

Our home is nestled in a large piece of wooded land (the property is actually three plots of land with a single house in the center) in lower-mid Moonridge. This is the ideal location for anyone who is looking to truly get away to enjoy peace and quiet with unobstructed mountain views, but also wants to be within easy reach of everything Big Bear has to offer: skiing, shopping, dining, boating etc.
