This lovingly curated cottage is the perfect getaway for families and friends. Watch the sunset over the peak-a-boo view of Big Bear Lake from the porch rocking chairs, stargaze in the hammock, soak in the hot tub, cozy up around the fireplace and recharge in this home away from home.

The space
The Moonridge Cottage offers accommodations for up to 8 people and is the perfect getaway for families and friends. The spacious master bedroom has a brand new pillow top king size mattress and its own en-suite bathroom. Further down the hall, there is a second bedroom with a queen size foam top mattress and a third bedroom with 4 twin bunk beds.

In the kitchen you'll find local coffee and tea provided as well as filtered water, spices, pots, pans, cutlery, bakeware and everything you need for the kitchen. Enjoy your meal around the spacious dining table with comfortable seating for up to 8 (we have an extender for the table if you need it).

Get a fire going in the wood burning fireplace and relax in the sunken in living room. Listen to a record from our curated selection on the vintage RCM player and gaze out at the trees and the peak-a-boo view of Big Bear Lake. You'll also find an assortment of boardgames, cards, puzzles, toys even a Nintendo and Super Nintendo gaming system pre-loaded with all of your favorite nostalgic video games to keep everyone entertained. Plus, both TVs are equipped with your favorite streaming platforms (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Disney+, etc.) and we also have a DVD/VHS player as well.

The cottage also features an extra large hot tub (accommodates up to 8 people max) a brand new outdoor fire pit with comfy lounge seating for all. Dine al fresco under our beautiful outdoor pergola and large octagonal picnic table. And for the winter months, we just installed a brand new furnace to keep our guests nice and warm.

For families with little ones, we have a pack-and-play and a high chair located in the closet of the guest room. We also have an amazing, completely fenced in and private back yard with a slide and swing and play house for kids!

The cottage is located in the desirable area of Moonridge and is just a short, 5 minute drive from the lake and the ski slopes at Bear Mountain Resort and a 7 minute drive to the lively Big Bear Village with all its restaurants and shops. We are also just a 4 minute drive to the Big Bear Alpine Zoo -- an animal rehabilitation center with bears, snow leopards, wolves and many other animals!
