A beautiful cabin with a gorgeous yard

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely, with many homey touches! The banisters and bed frame are gorgeous! The windows! What amazing views-beautiful sunset and sunrise! This was my first anniversary celebration, and a special visit with our niece and her husband. We had an early Thanksgiving dinner-the kitchen was fabulous! We hope to visit again!

Comfy, Cozy, and Clean!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our "home" away from home! We stayed at this home last weekend, November 3-6th. Prior to booking, my son and I spent more than ten hours searching for the vacation rental that would meet our family's needs. It's so hard to decide by looking online. What helped me make a decision is that Carol and Wallace responded to my email questions quickly. Plus, their home has a pool table, and my son said, "We need a pool table." I didn't think we'd use the pool table, but it ended up keeping us up late, having fun, and laughing. There were a lot of movies available to watch and a video game to play, but we never had time for those things. We wish we could've stayed longer!

As other reviewers have stated, the stairs are steep. If you have knee or hip problems, unfortunately, this might not be the place for you. My 73 year old mom, slept in the king bed upstairs in the loft. She made it up and down the stairs just fine. In fact, she enjoyed the exercise!

This home is conveniently located near Vons, Kmart, Stater Bros, and most importantly the lake. For you skiing enthusiast, you will be conveniently close to the lifts.

Never Bored

  • 5 of 5

Me and my fiance stayed here for 5 days, it was impossible to get bored, the pool table is what we used most, but there was bored games, cable, games out doors, bunnies. It was a great getaway. We didn't run into any problems during our stay so no negative reviews. But one curiosity is that it said 24hr surveillance but no cameras around the house. Over all great stay just that curiosity.

Owner's Response: That’s funny you noticed no camera. We forgot we needed to recharge it so we took it home to recharge and didn’t want to bother you during your stay to put it back up. It’s back in place now! Glad you had a good time! Come back soon!

Wondetful cabin with so much to offer. Loved the decor and all the extras.

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious cabin that was cozy and full of wonderful activities to enjoy like a pool table, games and movies. A nice kitchen and sleeping areas. The deck outside and back yard were nice for our dogs. Easy to find location and close to shopping areas. Carol was so sweet and helpful in everything we needed. You cannot go wrong with this wonderful cabin. We will be back again!

terrific vacation experience. Dramatic interior but cozy too

  • 5 of 5

Owners are exceptional. Great communication and very attentive obviously very committed to making sure their guests have a wonderful experience which we did. Only issue that should be mentioned is quite steep stairs to both the upper loft and lower level. Someone with really bad knees or may have a problem but anyone else it's fine and helps give this very unique property it's character. Great place and great location!

Home is lovely with lots of natural wood and very comfortable. Lots of detail to small things.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, however we brought Mom along who is elderly (85). Steps were very steep and she was not able to manage on her own. I just had a knee replacement, so steps were difficult for me too (67). We took one step at a time.

Location

We are located in Lower Moonridge, between both ski mountains a mile or two from the zoo and golf course.

There have been recent additions of things to do in Big Bear, including two zip lines, para-sailing, and bicycling at snow summit ski hill. They have increased and improved the many bike trails and the ski lift provides a ride to the top with the bikes loaded on special racks on the back of the ski chairs. The chalet at the top is open for lunch and drinks etc. Big Bear, of course, has great fishing with either boat rentals at three marinas or guided tours with fishing professionals. The water skiing in the summer is great as is the para sailing and wake board parks we have here.

The Big Bear Village has been renovated with new wider heated sidewalks, benches, landscaping and fire pits. A beautiful shopping and dining area.

There are several new venues for live music and nightly entertainment in Big Bear along with CATS theater and great places to shop and dine. We have water slides in the summer and in the winter they become fast or slow sledding rides.

Big Bear also has guided horseback riding. Old miner days, Cowboy poetry days, Chili cook offs and hundreds of year around activities to enjoy and make your stay in the mountains a good one.
