Overview

About the property

5 bed, 3 bath, Sleeps 10

This mountain retreat was created especially with you, our future guest, in mind. We have been aniticpating your arrival to our modest mountain cottage escape and we have been looking forward to sharing every detail with you. Our lovely cottage is located in the beautiful community of Upper Moonridge, is set back from the street, and is surrounded by Pine Trees which allows for a private experience without feeling isolated. Our property is only a hop, skip and a jump away from all the important attractions that guest are searching for. In the winter, ski and snowboard lovers will be able to enjoy over 438 combined acres of slopes, trails and park terrain at Bear Mountian and Snow Summit Ski Resorts, which is less than 1 mile away. In the summer, the same resort areas offer downhill moutain biking, hiking and scenic sky view chair rides for those who want to embrace the scenic views. MOreover, in the summer our golf lovers will be able to enjoy playing golf on the 9-hole course amid the mountianous views. Additionally, Big Bear lake provides opportinities for boating, fishing, personal watercraft, paddleboarking, kayaking, swimming, and lake cruises.

Our cottage is a great place to land after a long day of outdoor activites or just a wonderful place to rest and find solace from the busyiness that city life brings. Our two-story home is set up to accomadate large and small families. Our 4 bedrooms are beautifully decorated with touches of the natural features that moutain living brings. Two of our bedrooms are set up to accomodate the privacy that couples find important and the other two bedroooms are well established for families; each room has two sets bunk beds with 1 full size bed in each. Additionally, one of the bedrooms has a trudle bed. This makes for a total of 11 beds.

We felt that our home would not be complete without offerring a seperate place where both kids and adults could enjoy some fun downtime after a long day of outdoor play. The gameroom is equipped with a futon, 32-inch flat screen TV, playstation & games, VHS Disney movies for the little ones, and a 3 in one game table (Bumper pool, poker and table surface for other board game play).

One of the most imporant features of a home is the family room and kitchen space. This is where most families spend their time together and space is defintely an important feature when accomodating a sense of community. Our familiy room was furnished with an extra large sectional with family togetherness in mind. The 55-inch TV is a great bonus for media lovers. WIFI, Cable, and local telephone service are amenities that we felt were a neccessity to help our guest feel at home.

Our 50's retro themed kitchen is spacious and has everything a guest needs to entertain a large group. Our dinette tables seat 8 people comfortably. We worked very hard to provide all kitchen equiptment, appliances, dishes and untensils that guests may need to create their favoraite home-cooked meals. We even considered that our guests may want to wind down their long day with a cocktail so we provided a blender to accomodate. Every detail was considered.

Lets not forget to metion our outdoor living space. Our wrap around deck provides a spacious environment where families can gather to BBQ, enjoy the various types of wildlife and flora, or rest in the hammock curled up with a great book. The possiblities for fun, rest and relaxation are endless.

We feel blessed to be able to provide this opportunity for you and it is our hope that you will find our mountian cottage retreat a home away from home. We worked diligently to give you the best value for buck and look forward to your stay with us.

Great Summer Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came up to Big Bear to escape the heat! This house was just what our 2 families needed to relax and enjoy Big Bear together. We had 12 of us and there was plenty of room for all! The kids really enjoyed the game room and the hammock! This cabin is in a great location. We enjoyed going into the village, hiking and shopping all nearby. It was also close to the slopes so we would love to use this cabin when we come up in the winter to snowboard. Thank you Joe for a great cabin experience!

The house is very cozy, homey and very roomy.

  • 5 of 5

The house meet all of our expectations. It was able to accommodate 6 adults and three kids. The men were able to go fishing and the entire family was able to enjoy the wonderful zoo that was near by. The locations of the house is close to town. The overall experience was wonderful and would be definitely stay there again.
