About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3)

Welcome to the mountains!

Kick off your snow boots and settle in for a relaxing stay in the Mountain Jewel, our cozy one-bedroom cabin perfectly located near both slopes and the golf course in Big Bear. Combining classic Americana spirit and modern amenities, the Mountain Jewel has comforts any traveler can appreciate (hello, down comforter, K-Cup coffee, free WiFi, and cable TV!).

Immaculate, Updated Cabin with Nostalgic Americana

A stay in the mountains is good for the soul! As an adult, I wanted to continue the legacy of childhood trips to our family cabin - purchased in 1939 for just 50 cents - with snowy vistas and towering pines, days spent hitting the slopes, and good times with good company. When I saw this cabin in Big Bear, untouched since the 1950s/60s and complete with big game trophies on the walls, I knew it was The One. It was a "diamond in the rough," for sure, but after a full architect-led remodel in 2012, we ended up with exactly the right feel and spirit we wanted, combining the nostalgia of a family cabin with modern upgrades and comforts for guests.

Sink back onto a comfy couch after a day on the slopes. There’s also a modern, fully equipped kitchen any gourmet would be happy to sauté in. There's also a propane BBQ on a small deck for warm evenings.

A devoted entry for outdoor gear keeps things neat. The bedroom with comfy queen bed and hardwood-and-tile bathroom with a tub and shower offer true indulgence for a couple's getaway (there is also a single fold-out bed for one more guest).

Walk to Ski Slopes and Golf Course

Walk to Snow Summit or Bear Mountain Ski Resort (a half-mile away), with a bus stop just two blocks from the house! Also close by, enjoy the breathtaking vistas at the San Bernardino National Forest or tee up at the golf course. Both are just a few blocks away.

The Mountain Jewel is a few miles from the village, far enough off the beaten path to give you a true sense of wilderness and quiet, where clear, starry nights encourage you to cozy up on the couch with a glass of wine.

Our wooded neighborhood is also near a few restaurants, and convenient to all the outdoor activities your adventurer’s heart desires: hiking, zip-lining, birding, mountain biking (with lift access), the Big Bear Alpine Zoo, fishing, and lots more.

Talk to us for other activity recommendations!

Whether you’re here for adventure, relaxation, or to reminisce on your own treasured family vacations – with days spent watching the snow glint off the mountains, and nights spent gathered over stories and mugs of hot cocoa – this is just the place.

About Lisa

Growing up in Rockies I have a great love for the out doors. California seems to have everything from beautiful beach to wonderful mountains. My favorite thing about California mountains are the redwoods. I feel at home in the forest.

Lisa purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Lisa chose Moonridge

This area is full of towering trees and cute cozy cabins. I have owned a place in the area since 1997. I love getting away from the city to enjoy the outdoors. The slops are near by, the national forest is only 2 blocks away surrounded by the forest and the stars at night.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is really a jewel, quit cozy and everything you need to be comfortable. Close to booth ski slopes, ski shuttle 2 blocks from house.

Very dated and uncomfortable, but very clean.

  • 2 of 5

Would my wife and I stay here again, NO. I would not use hand me down furniture, that should have been thrown out years ago. As for the cabin it was very clean, and the location to everything was good. The cabin is in need of a lot of TLC. We are still waiting for our refundable deposit from our check out date of 8/27/18. We had to contact Lisa two times and we were told she had to wait for the cleaning person to get there and to determine if there was any damage to the property. We had to contacted VRBO, and they told us the refund was approved on 8/31. VRBO told us we would have to wait 5 to 7 business days for the return on the deposit, not good business.

Pretty clean. Very small. No paved driveway or laundry facilities.

OK rental. Furnished with 1960 era furniture.

First time renting a lake cabin. Perhaps we expected too much as we are used to 4 star hotels.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was close to everything but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. Has a great walking/hiking trail right up the street. Great location. Lisa was very attentive and accommodating.

Clean, Close, and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a great cabin, very comfortable and clean. All the amenities and a good heater. There's a great little trail system behind the neighborhood and it's an easy walk to the Mountain. Lisa was very accessible and accommodating. We would stay here again!

Quaint cabin for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

We liked the cabin for its quaint touches. Although it was small, it was well appointed with clean furnishings, amenities and lot of fun things to do (like read and play board games) if you are stuck in a cabin. Thats probably less likely though since the cabin is close to Bear mountain ski area.
