About Rich Pariseau

Came to CA from MN in the late 60s to teach school in Huntington Bch. Skied in BB and fell and love with it. I designed and built the beautiful home. I am a hands on person so will find many wonderful aspects about the property. It took about 15 years from design to finish. I no longer teach, but work with my investments and spend time with my family and travel to all corners of the planet.

Rich Pariseau purchased this house in 1990

Why Rich Pariseau chose Moonridge

I had this lot 15 years before I built the home. It took a lot of patients and planning to justify this a home on this unique lot. I believe I did it. You be the judge.

What makes this house unique

The property is truly unique. You have the privacy, seclution and incredible views, but are just steps away from skiing, golf, hiking, mountain biking and hiking.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ahh, the views from every window, what a beautiful home, very clean

Thank you, thank you we all had a wonderful time.

The Worst Experience

  • 1 of 5

The location was excellent. The house looked nice outside but very old inside. The heater didn't work for one whole day, there were no toilet papers, the linen was not washed, the pots and pans were nasty and old. We couldn't use those. We were 15 adults and the table was too small for everybody. If you are a person who likes to be in a clean kitchen this house is not for you. After all this discomfort the owner will charge you for some towels and for cleaning spots from the old carpet when you already have paid for cleaning. I will never recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Being in this business for over 30 years, on occasion you have an ungrateful dirty destructive guests. I will not go into how they left or what they did to my beautiful home. Just say it was someone you would not want in your home again. I did let them know and there were some deductions from there deposit. One of the forced air furnaces did not work for a short time, but was repaired promptly. They did state if I did not return there entire deposit, they would write a poor review.

Couldn't be closer to the slopes!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this house. It is walking distance to Bear Mountain with beautiful views of the slopes and it sleeps a ton of people. The hot tub was great. We used it a lot. The owner was on premises in a small apartment attached to the house. It was nice to have him there for a few questions but also took away a bit of our ease because we were always hoping we weren't being too loud, etc. Kitchen has no basics like spices, foil, oil, sugar, etc. so come prepared to have all that. (There was salt and pepper.) Bring games if you want them. Layout of the cabin is kinda funky but it does the job for a big group. Overall, we had a great time. We were a group of kids and grown ups and we really enjoyed our time there. And, again, it couldn't be closer to the slopes!! That (and the hot tub) are the magic of this place! Enjoy!

Awesome Location Views

  • 5 of 5

What a birthday getaway treat I had staying at Bear View Chalets' "Glass Castle"! There are so many windows with spectacular views from all three floors. For my large group, there were pleasant accommodations with fire places, a well equipped kitchen, a big deck with a BBQ and with an awesome view of the Big Bear Mountain Ski Resort and Country Club, which are a short walk across the street. After a full day of skiing some of us relaxed in the outdoor spa, or opted for the two indoor Jacuzzi tubs, or just relaxed in the ample seating area in front of the living room's fireplace and the big screen T.V.. We had a blast on our night out on the town, which is a short drive from the Bear View Chalets, and were thankful for plenty of parking available upon our return, and not concern about where to park on our next day of skiing. A great place to return to, definitely!

Couldn't have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 stayed here for 5 days and had an absolute blast! The rustic interior look us just as beautiful as the outside. Was very comfortable for everyone. One family stayed in the downstairs room that had 2 bedrooms and a play are for the kids! Plenty of space in the house to enjoy with everyone and even able to sneak away downstairs to have some privacy. Almost feels like you are in a different house. Simply amazing! The house is steps away from the lifts and all the kids had a great time playing with the snow on the driveway. Our opinion was that the best time to go into the jacuzzi was early in the morning - if you don't hit the slopes. Thanks for the fun experience!

Exceptional location right across from the ski slopes. Plenty of room in this very comfortable and large home that provides a perfect setting for a family get-to-gether or group of friends that enjoy shared experiences.
