Quiet mountain cabin with a private hot tub, steps away from the national forest

Fall in love with this classic California cabin in the heart of Big Bear and just steps away from the national forest! The front porch here overlooks the quaint neighborhood, and the back deck offers views of the pines and rocky hills. The rustic, refurbished interior frames all the comforts you'll need to feel at home during your mountain getaway.

You're a quick drive away from the lake, and not too much farther from the slopes of Snow Summit and Bear Mountain. About a mile and a half away from this home, you'll find hearty warm sandwiches and a friendly atmosphere at BJ's Restaurant.

Whether you're skiing, hiking, or boating during the day, unwind later with a soak in this cabin's own private hot tub. Cook out on the charcoal grill here, or simply sit under the stars as evening sets in. Inside, a full kitchen and dining area await your quiet dinners in, while a wood stove keeps the mood cozy.

Cable TV, a DVD player, and free WiFi keep you connected during your stay in the woods. A private washer and dryer here allow for easy loads of laundry. Please be aware that 4x4 driving may be required here during the winter.

Treat yourself to a vacation in this wonderfully outfitted family cabin! A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.

You must be 21 years or older to rent this property.

We really enjoyed out time at Moon Shadow. We spent much of the day on the back porch among the trees, the birds, and the chipmunks. The home is located about a 5 minute drive from the lake. We enjoyed morning walked on the Aspen Pedal Path. Lovely time!

I will start with this, it was a long weekend to celebrate Fathers Day, my sons 3rd bday and my 37th bday as well! We had never been to Big Bear so we were not sure what to expect.

We had a little issue trying to get in, but the rental office was super responsive and patient! We had a wonderful experience, when it could have been a bad start to the vacation. They got us in within minutes and we had a wonderful trip!

This cabin is about 3 minute drive from the North Shore of the lake and about 5 minutes from grocery shopping, yet you feel like you are deep in the woods! We spent most of our time on the shaded patio - in the hot tub or using the BBQ when at the cabin.

Although this cabin does have wifi, it only has a basic small screen TV, so it is perfect to unplug and be outside while there. It is spacious enough for a family of 5, stayed cool in June and honestly was just perfect! I would absolutely book it again!

This is exactly what you think of when you think 'cabin'. From the super cute decor, the hot tub that over looks the dry creek bed, to the loft that entertained our kids for hours. Our family loved everything about this home and we will definitely be back.

We were really happy with this cabin! The hot tub was amazing. The decor was so cute...cabin like but not kitschy. Very romantic and cozy. The only negative is that the fees were pretty high for only staying two nights but that seems like how it goes now with short term rentals.

This cabin is perfect for a couple or small family. Three houses down from National Forest it is perfect for hiking. It is on the quiet side of Big Bear without traffic and crowds. Cabin is cozy and the jacuzzi is excellent! We will be back again.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay late September, 2018. The house was exactly how it was described in the photos and description. It was very private, barely saw any neighbors. The couch was comfortable and the bed downstairs was too. We didn’t make use of the upstairs beds. Great, private jacuzzi. Great location too on the quiet side of town. We found a nearby hiking trail and got a few good walks. The check in/check out process was very smooth. We will definitely be back.

Only down fall is no air conditioning first day was very hot in house. And no blow dryer. Fully stocked be on that.

We spent three wonderful nights at this cozy retreat nestled away from downtown Big Bear. The upgraded bathroom and well equipped kitchen made this a home away from home. The patio is perfect for enjoying breakfast in the morning and stargazing at night. The clean & well maintained spa is an added bonus after a day of mountain adventures. We look forward to returning to moon shadow on our next visit to Big Bear.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Moon Shadow. After exploring the town we spent time relaxing in the hot tub, grilling, star gazing from the back patio. It was the perfect weekend getaway.

Very cozy and cabin-ey in a super quiet part of town. Super impressed with everything! Loved hanging out in the hot tub during the cold nights. Hope to stay here again, wouldn't even look anywhere else!

The price and the cabin were perfect

We had a great time in this cabin, It was very clean, the beds were comfortable all in all we had a great time we would totally book it again but maybe with a smaller group. The cabin is on the smaller side we had a group of 4 adults 2 kids and it was confortable but the kids didn't really have much room to play. The only thing I didn't really like was the fact that the dining table was literally next to the stove U have to be real careful if u are cooking and someone is sitting in one of the chairs but that's kind of the layout of the house so not anyone's fault. Also the kitchen is stocked but missing a few items a baking sheet & maybe a small griddle for pancakes. The hot tub was amazing we all really enjoyed it. We totally recommend this cabin we even have a few family members looking to book it soon. We also really enjoy booking with Vacasa.
