*** I will have the Cabin Decorated with lights and tree for the holidays if you like***

*** The Sheephorn Chalet is located in lower Moonridge, secluded yet so close to it all***

Sheephorn Chalet is the place to stay if you are in search of a cozy, clean cabin with all of the comforts of home and all of the amenities you seek while staying in Big Bear.

Located in lower Moonridge, this Chalet has it all. Walking distance to the golf course, zoo, restaurants, and only 1/2 mile to Bear Mountain! Sheephorn Chalet's flat lot is not only able to hold several cars but also larger towed vehicles such as a boat or trailer. Bring your toys and enjoy everything Big Bear has to offer. The walk to surrounding attractions is also a great feature of this cabin... forget dreaded hilly roads to climb back up after a long day of golf or skiing; flat roads will be your travel home.

Sheephorn Chalet is our newly furnished 2 bedroom, 2 bath home with the real feel of a cabin. The beautiful dark wood beams throughout make this cabin the perfect mountain get-away. Imagine your stay at the Sheephorn Chalet… settling in on a cold night while enjoying the warm fireplace and your favorite movie, or relaxing in the hot tub just steps outside of the front door. Breathtaking views await you from the grand living room windows looking out on Bear Mountain without any neighbors across the street. Whether you sip on a glass of wine while the sun sets or wake up with your hot coffee and watch the mountains come to life, this view will not disappoint.

Pride of ownership is evident in all of the details you will find from the brand new furniture and decorations throughout to the stocked kitchen with all of your home necessities. We thought of everything our family would need to enjoy our stay and are sharing all of this with you. Free Wi-Fi is a great amenity, we include a connection to Cable TV, Netflix, Pandora and Youtube in every room on the flat screen T.V.'s. Take advantage of all it has to offer and make yourself at home during your stay at the Sheephorn Chalet!

Both bedrooms are beautifully furnished with brand new queen beds, mattresses and linens. The master bedroom upstairs has its own bathroom and shower. There is a second bedroom downstairs and adjacent bathroom. The living room sofa also folds out to a queen size sleeper which has an upgraded memory foam mattress. You are sure to have a restful night’s sleep!

For your dining pleasure, we have a beautiful six seated dining table and all of the tools you will need to make your favorite home cooked meal. The kitchen has all of the essentials such as a coffee maker, blender, toaster, microwave, chopping block, knife set, dishes, utensils, glasses, plastic cups for use outside, and food storage containers for your left-overs.

Sheephorn Chalet is the perfect choice for your next Big Bear vacation. With such close proximity to adventure and fun as well as just taking in the scenic mountain area, this cabin has everything you’re looking for. Don’t miss out on this cozy chalet stay!

About Arin Buffington

I am a proud father of two beautiful little girls. I spent lots of time as a child up in the fresh air of the mountains and want my girls to experience the same. I spent time as an instructor at Mammoth Mountain and still enjoy getting fresh powder tracks and super fast corduroy runs first thing in the morning. I really hope you enjoy the Chalet as much as we do and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Why Arin Buffington chose Moonridge

I fell in love with the breathtaking views the Chalet has to offer. The beautiful deck, giant wood beams, Sand Canyon Creek across the street to explore and most of all the giant windows really allow you to sit back and enjoy the perfect location. Sheephorn Chalet's location is perfect; close to it all yet still rural enough to get the real mountain feel, best of all I can walk to the slopes, enjoy a day of boarding and finish the day in the Jacuzzi overlooking Bear Mountain ridge!

What makes this chalet unique

I have made it a point to pay attention to detail in the Chalet, all the furnishings are new, the kitchen is well stocked, the beds are warm and the place is well kempt. I provide free Wi-Fi, Cable T.V. and Netflix and Pandora in every room... Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, I am happy to help make your mountain getaway a great experience.

We absolutely loved the cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

Location is great, close to everything. The views are amazing especially the upstairs balcony view. Comfy beds. Kitchen is fully equipped. The kids enjoyed baking the first night. Hot tub was definitely a plus. We loved every minute of our vacation. Arin was extremely accommodating and very helpful. I highly recommend and look forward to returning.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Arin is a wonderful host and very easy to work with. Originally we booked Shiphorn Chalet, but about 3 weeks before the trip we found out that we wouldn’t be able to go on those dates and I asked Arin if we could postpone our stay for one week. Arin was very understanding, and even though Shiphorn Chalet was not available, he offered us his other cabin without any additional charges. The Owl’s Nest is a beautiful cabin with great location and it has absolutely everything you can possibly need! Our family really enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to go back!

Clean, cozy, and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Even though writing this review might prevent me from being able to stay here again by making the Sheephorn Chalet too popular, I really have to hand it to Arin for keeping such a great home up for rental in a key part of Big Bear. I stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights, and I was very sad to have to leave. I have nothing but good things to say about this chalet. It's very well designed, the kitchen is stocked with any cooking utensils you may need, and extremely comfy. Arin was an extremely gracious host and very helpful through the entire process.

Cooking here worked out great, I was able to make breakfast every day with the good pots and pans Arin had stocked. Combined with the Roku streaming internet radio every morning, cooking breakfast was a blast and oddly enough a highlight of my trip.

This place feels very much like a home with character and not a stripped down rental home with the bare necessities. Girlfriend and I appreciated the design choices we saw on the inside. The view from the upstairs balcony is amazing. Lots of corners that were good for taking photos for memories or instagram if you're into that kinda thing.

The hot tub outside was very nice. I was initially skeptical of privacy due to the outdoor tub being sort of the front porch of the property but the privacy walls and semi-secluded location of the property took care of those concerns. Good thinking putting the tub next to the front door too! The walk/run back inside the house feels a lot longer when it's 30 degrees outside.

The chalet location is fantastic. Five minutes from the Big Bear Alpine Zoo (recommended for kiddos and animal lovers) and Bear Mountain Ski Resort and only 10 minutes or so into town and Snow Summit. There's a Walgreens nearby if you need any last minute supplies.

Overall, this was a perfect stay. My girlfriend and I had searched for hours through hundreds of resorts, cabins, and rental homes in Big Bear searching for the "right" one. Sheephorn Chalet gets it right for price, amenities, and location. Definitely looking forward to staying again as this place will be at the top of my list when I plan my next trip for Big Bear. This is definitely a great place to be if you want to visit Big Bear and get away from the bustle of the city.

Well maintained and very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Arin made it easy to book, pick up keys and check out. The cabin is very well maintained with comfortable bedding and a beautiful view. Very close to the slopes for days of snowboarding and jacuzzi for the evenings. Included a well equipped kitchen. I would highly recommend and looking forward to returning.
