Spacious and Cozy Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend in Jill's beautiful cabin. The open floor plan of living room & kitchen along with high ceilings really opens up the cabin and allows everybody to have space without feeling packed in. Amenities and decorations were perfect for a Big Bear cabin; it almost felt like home :). Jill was a great communicator and very pleasant to work with - she was very reasonable and always responded quickly. Very nice back patio with a BBQ and open area to play/sled. Overall we had an amazing time and would love to come back again. Thanks Jill!

1st family trip to Big Bear

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family to Big Bear to getaway. I can say this place is amazing. The house is spacious and they have a huge back yard. Instead of taking the kids tubing, they took advantage of the hill in the back. We made a walk way on the snow, and made some steps to help them climb up. From there getting them back in the house was a struggle. The rooms are big, and they provide everything you need to feel like home. My family loved the house and how close everything is. Thank you Jill for the great experience.

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!

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!
