Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chalet in Lower Moonridge - Sheephorn Chalet

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Mountain Views, Extremely Close To Bear Mountain! Wi-Fi

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 Big Bear Lake

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.

Cozy, quaint, perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - absolutely no complaints and exceeded our expectations. It fit our family of 5 (3 kids) perfectly. We enjoyed the jacuzzi which was already warmed for us when we got there. The home is decorated well, comfortable, clean, and updated with all the right cabin touches. And the windows downstairs allowed so much natural light and views that even when indoors you could still experience the beautiful surroundings. Very quiet neighborhood with not much traffic. But still, close enough for a very quick drive to the Village and walking distance to the super sweet zoo. The owner, Aaron, was beyond helpful. He checked in on us around the time we planned to arrive to be sure we got in town okay, gave us a couple of good dinner places to try and checked in on us the day we checked out to be sure we enjoyed ourselves. This is our first try at VRBO - I don't know if this type of experience is normal.... But regardless, we are spoiled now! :) you will not regret renting this cabin. We will for sure be back for a longer stay at some point.

Fun weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very lovely and cozy home with a great mountain view. The house lived up to its description and was very clean. The one issue we did have was the lighting in the up stairs bedroom was very dull and a bit out of the way to reach. Other than that we had a blast and the owner was awesome.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much and it was a pleasure hosting your weekend getaway to Big Bear... I appreciate the feedback and will address the lighting in the bedroom by installing a rustic ceiling fan that has lights that will match the cabin décor. This will give guests the option for dim or bright lighting, take care!

Anniversary Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the Sheephorn Chalet. Great view of the mountains with easy access the Big Bears main attractions. The Chalet is well equipped with all the kitchen needs and all new appliances including washer-dryer. We bar-b-qued a couple of steaks on the Propane unit that was in the 2 car garage. The bathrooms were all modern and newly done in a nice design. Nice comfortable beds with a flat screen TV in each room. Netflix, You Tube, Pandora etc. was available and having the Wi-Fi was great. If your looking for a nice quite getaway for a few days or a week on the ski slopes, the Sheephorn Chalet is a great choice.

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here last month and my kids have not stopped taking about it since! We had such a great time staying here!!! It was a great place to get away for a few days and the best thing of all it was fully stocked with every supply needed in the kitchen, bathrooms to even the salt on the porch if it got icy! The only thing we had to do was get food, which made so covenant. It was like being home, away from home. Plus the cabin felt you were far away in the woods, however we were mintues away from the shops, restaurants, and ski resort. I can't wait to vacation here again for much needed relaxation and to make more memories with my family!!!

I wanted to get away to a nice and piece full place. This place was what I was looking for. The nice crisp air, snow falling and crackling of the fire place. Relaxing in a spa with a good view of a clear sky. Deffently a place I would come back to. This place is also close to town for dinner and shopping.

Happy Family!

  • 4 of 5

Could not have had a better experience at Sheephorn Chalet. The accommodations were exactly as described. The layout was functional, the decor was tasteful and well suited for the home. The location was great for us. We could sit on the couch looking out the windows and see skiers on Bear Mountain, a good distance away but see them just the same. We could take a long walk in the quiet neighborhood. Or we could hop in the car for great burger or beer at a local establishment.

There were restaurant choices and shopping in either direction nearby. I liked being a short drive from the village to avoid the traffic and congestion that follows that type of location.

As a host Arin was responsive and courteous. He did everything he said he would do, can't ask for much more. We will likely stay here again, winter or summer.
