Perfect for the Family

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for giving our family an unforgettable weekend. The Dancing Bear Cabin topped our expectations. The house was extremely spacious, beautiful and clean with breathtaking views from the deck. Can't imagine how gorgeous this cabin looks in the winter with snow all around. Even though we took our trip in the fall, it was definitely worth the trip! The highlight of the home itself would have to be the kitchen. It was perfectly centered in the main living area. Thank you once again and I will be highly recommending your cabins to others!!

Beautiful Cabin!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time at the cabin. It is beautiful inside and out. It is very spacious and very nicely furnished. We loved the fact that it is a single story home and that my kids and my mom (who has difficulty walking) did not have to deal with steep stairs. Big Plus! The kids had a blast collecting pinecones and just running around and having a good time in the leveled back yard. The adults had a wonderful time on the deck grilling and star gazing at night. The home owner, Jill, is very accomodating and very easy to work with. It really showed that she payed attention to the little details to make sure our stay was memorable. Overall, this is a can't miss cabin and we look forward to renting it again in the near future!

Perfect Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Dancing Bear cabin was wonderful from beginning to end. After calling numerous places and searching for a place to stay with no real luck, we called the home owner Jill and she was so welcoming and friendly on the phone that we immediately knew this was the place to jump on. She made everything so easy and seamless. From making sure our questions were answered to having all the necessities ready when we got there, we will most certainly be back. The living area is much more spacious than you can tell in the pictures and the layout is awesome for socializing. The kitchen, dining room, and living area all flow so there is really a huge space for everyone to hang out in and not feel cramped at all. We came for the 4th of July with our extended family it was the perfect
size cabin for our needs. The back deck is awesome and great place to barbecue and hang out. There are tons of games and a foosball table which we had lots of fun with. And you can hike right out the back door down in the ravine which is awesome especially for kids and/ or dogs. We would highly recommend renting from Jill!

Beautiful Place to Stay for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time at Jill's beautiful house. This house is very clean and nicely decorated, and that's coming from someone who is very picky, trust me! Jill is very pleasant to deal with and she kindly answers any questions that may arise. We're not really into skiing, so the trench out back was perfect for us to have some wonderful snow play without having to go anywhere else. We would definitely love to come back for another visit in the future!

This home is absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't a more perfect place to have our group event. This home is spacious, beautifully decorated, it has amazing views of the hills, the kitchen area and living room area face each other, indoor and outdoor hallways to put your gear on, cozy fireplace, it was the perfect set up to entertain and cook yummy foods. The process was incredibly easy, Jill is an amazing renter/owner, took care of our every question from beginning to end of out trip. They also have a second home on the same street, which we also rented, since our group was so large. Thank you so much again guys for allowing us to stay at both of your beautiful homes. :D We look forward to coming back! :)

Family and friends ski weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 9 stayed at this wonderful cabin for a weekend of skiing and tubing! We had a great time! The description was exact. The photos were right on! The property was perfectly maintained. Super close to bear mountain and snow summit. There is a great rental place right down the street that is super fast(bear mountain boards)! The owner was sweet and easy to deal. The home is really nice with plenty of room. The kids played outback and had a great time! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to stay! There is a huge deck out back to sit and have coffee or watch the kids play! We can't wait ti return! Thanks for sharing your nice home!

From the Owner

Our home was built in 2005. This spacious 2200 sq home is located in Moonridge area in Big Bear Lake, California. It has all the amenities you would ever need. Walking distance to Bear Mountain ski slopes, the Moonridge Zoo. We extended our back deck the full width of the home - it is huge. Plenty of space to relax. We have an open field in the back for building a snowman, a gorge right there for sledding. No need to pack up the kids and pay for snow play ...just walk off the back deck!
