Why Daniela Messina chose Moonridge

We come to Big Bear at least six times a year and wanted somewhere clean and comfortable to stay. You never know what you're going get when you rent a random cabin. We wanted to provide a clean, comfortable experience for our guests. We also wanted something very close to the Bear Mountain. The best part is you don't have to drive to the mounting during those busy months especially when the parking lot fills - just walk down to the shuttle stop for a free ride.

What makes this cabin unique

The goal with this cabin to have something very different from your typical 'cottage' home with cottage decor. We're going for a plush ski cabin look. Updated in March 2015, we've added all the comforts of home in a convenient little cabin.

we enjoyed our stay at this cozy, cute cabin! It's perfect for a little getaway trip for a couple; couple min away from the shuttle bus to bear mountain if you like ski/snowboard; btw, the water pressure is great :)

Amazing stay and cabin

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was very cozy and beautiful. A bit small, but no problem with that. The bathrooms were very clean and the kitchen was well-stocked with pots and pans. Daniela was extremely helpful with everything and there were no problems.

One of our favorite Big Bear cabins so far. Cute, comfortable, and and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great. It met all of our expectations and looked just like the pictures. My husband and I stayed here with our 3 year old son. It was just the right size for us. We enjoyed the close proximity to the mountain, and the village is about 5 minutes away. The cabin was clean and we were excited that there was Netflix!

The only negative was that the pull out couch was not comfortable, but I don't know that I've ever experienced one that is!

The cabin was in a great location for us. Very quiet and cozy. It was clean, well stocked with everything we needed. We brought groceries and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook and clean up. Also, the shower had great water pressure! We recommend this cabin.
