The Space

Welcome to Dark Side of the Moonridge, a mid-century modern designed, 2-bedroom retreat nestled in the pines of lower Moonridge close to Bear Mountain Ski Resort, Big Bear Zoo, and not far from the lake.

Featured in Travel + Leisure in 2022, this cabin is the perfect spot for adventurous couples who want to enjoy a day on the slopes or a take on one of the many scenic hikes in the area. If cozy fireplaces on snowy days are your style, then this is exactly where you will want to be. 

Kitchen: Fully-equipped kitchen where you’ll find a selection of cookware, bakeware and utensils ready for your culinary creations. Don’t worry about shopping for the basics, we’ve stocked the pantry with the necessary essentials. For those who love to grill, the back deck features a gas grill perfect for preparing burgers, steaks or veggies while taking in the fresh mountain air.

Living Room: Comfortable and modern living room with plenty of seating features a wood burning fireplace, Smart TV with streaming and a record player with an eclectic mix of records to suit any music tastes.

Dining Area: Enjoy your culinary creations, or takeout pizza, at the spacious dining table with plenty of comfortable seating. It is the perfect spot to savor your meals after a long day on the slopes or play a game of Uno, Jenga or Dominos with friends.

Primary Bedroom: Features a King size bed, cozy hanging chair for enjoying your morning coffee or reading a book plus an unbeatable unobstructed view of Bear Mountain.

Bedroom Two: Features two Queen size beds with bamboo memory foam beds and a Smart TV.

Outdoor Space: The deck just off the living room features a natural gas line BBQ, fire pit and views over the backyard which is perfect for sledding. 

*Dog Friendly (up to 1 dog) $75 pet fee per stay required

We love well-behaved dogs, and we understand that going on vacation with your beloved fur babies is more fun! Bring them along and explore all the nature that Big Bear has to offer. We recommend taking them over to the alpine pedal path for some exercise or exploring one of the many hiking trails throughout the valley. The trails are sure to tire out the most athletic pups. We do not allow cats.

*Views: Primary bedroom has an unobstructed view of Bear Mountain.

*5 person occupancy, 2 cars max. No street parking allowed at any time.

For security purposes, a ring doorbell monitors the front door by video.

You’re allowed to bring 2 cars to Dark Side of the Moonridge (city Rule)

Please note that quiet hours in the neighborhood start at 10 p.m. and are strictly enforced.

There are 3 routes that lead to Big Bear: Hwy 18, Hwy 330 & Hwy 38. As long as there is one route open and accessible, your reservation will remain in effect. Check the CalTrans website to get the most current and accurate road conditions.

Please understand that we are in the mountains and at the mercy of mother nature. Perfection does not exist when she decides to make her appearance.

Please note we do not have air conditioning – you won’t find AC in typical mountain cabins and it’s rarely hot enough. For warmer summer days, you can open windows to take advantage of the natural cross breezes from our hilltop + use the portable fans provided.
