Quiet and cozy cabin w/ hot tub. Close to golf and skiing!

Discover why so many love the gorgeous San Bernardino Mountains when you choose this Big Bear cabin for five. Enjoy a private hot tub, full kitchen, and many other essentials to ensure you feel right at home.

Set a little higher up on the mountain, just a few streets over from the Gold Mine Golf Course and just over a mile to Bear Mountain Resort for thrilling winter sports, the group is sure to have a blast no matter what time of year you visit! Plus, the serene pine trees and quiet surroundings create an atmosphere where you can spend quality time with fellow travelers in between outings.

This rustic vacation rental exudes mountain comfort with its wood walls and vaulted ceilings, along with plush carpet and oversized furnishings.

Kick your feet up and relax in the inviting living room after a day on the slopes or at the lake. Watch a movie on the flatscreen TV, which also has a DVD player attached for convenience. Light the wood fireplace for warmth and ambiance while playing board games (you'll find a stockpile in the coffee table) and streaming music via the WiFi.

Across the room is a beautifully updated kitchen with granite countertops, major appliances, and even some smaller appliances like a microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, and mixer. Just bring fresh groceries and you can have hot, fresh meals any time of day. And when the weather is nice, take your plate outside to the wood deck and patio set to grill and dine under the sun.

Soothe sore muscles and let the cares of the world slip away by soaking in the hot tub or taking a hot shower in the bathroom after a fun-filled day. And take advantage of the washer and dryer to enjoy fresh clothes even while packing extra light.

There's ample space for all five guests to rest each night among the two bedrooms, a king-size bed occupies the master bedroom, while the second room features a queen-size bed and twin-over-full bunk bed.

Whether you're escaping the summer heat or looking for snow adventure, Big Bear Lake is the place for you! Warm weather brings fishing, boating, parasailing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, and so much more just three miles away on the sparkling lake. Visit the Alpine Zoo close by, hike, bike, or drive down to The Village for shopping and dining. Magic Mountain is great year-round as it has snow tubing in the winter and a water slide, alpine slide, mini-golf, and go-karts available in the summer. When snow caps the mountain, bring your skis and snowboards for epic runs at Bear Mountain and Snow Summit Resorts.

Great cabin, great location, great hot tub!
Kristin H. Jan 2020
It was a perfect cabin for my family. Everything clean and had just what we needed.
Gloria G. Dec 2019
The cabin was well equipped, and clean. Close to shops, restaurants, Big Bear Village, and all the snow fun places. Children and adults loved it. Enjoying the hot tub while snowing was the best part!
Terrence D. Nov 2019
We loved the cabin! Very nice quiet getaway with all the accommodations including a wide variety of movies, spacious rooms, hot tub, kitchen, very nice grill, and location was a plus. I will definitely book another stay soon. Staff was great as well and super accommodating.

Quiet setting, good location and clean cabin.
Antonio E. Aug 2019
me and my family stayed here over the weekend and loved the cabin. it has a spa, full kitchen with utensils, pots, pans , coffee maker withcoffee and condiments. towels, blankets etc. just bring your fresh/raw food and you can bake, grill or cook in the oven top. the only thing that needs to be improve is the lighting in the shower and the leak in the shower head. and also king size bed in the masters is too big for the room but overall place is clean and cozy. we will definitely come back!
Manager response:
Hi, Antonio! We have taken care of the shower maintenance and hope to see you again!
Winette H. Aug 2019
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Room for our family of 4, invited grandma but she couldn’t come, and room for one more! We barbecued dinner our first night, before kayaking the next day, and relaxed in the spa. Had nice showers after a restful night, and walked the quaint neighborhood before hitting bear belly sandwich shop! 👌🏻😎 overall all of our needs were met, neighbors were friendly and we loved it! We’ll be back
Sarah H. Jul 2019
This was the cutest little cabin to call home away from home. Check in was easy and the cabin itself was beautiful and comfy. It has everything we needed and was so incredibly close to everything we wanted to do in Big Bear. Would not hesitate to stay here again!
Yeghya B. Oct 2018
Enjoyed our stay for the most part
Brian T. Aug 2018
Dog friendly. Great to have a Jacuzzi.
Trisha M. Aug 2018
This was the perfect getaway for our family of 5. The cabin was cozy and clean, exactly as the pictures show. We would be glad to come back again and again!

Manager response:
We are extremely pleased the guests enjoyed everything about the home at Big Bear. It’s very apparent why they loved EVERYTHING about the home—what’s not to love? With a private hot tub, a wood fireplace and a complete DVD library, this is a great location to get away from life and bask in the beauty surrounding this lovely home. There are plenty of open dates to book your next getaway. Thank you.
Judithann K. May 2018
This house was very clean and so nicely furnished. We loved the woodsy setting in such a quiet little neighborhood. It's just minutes from town and very close to the amazing Alpine Zoo/Rehab Center for animals. Thank you so much Vacasa for taking such good care of us!
Christina A. Apr 2018
Spotless and cosy cabin with nice "mountainish" decor and comfortable furnishings (and comfortable bed) in a quiet area surrounded by trees. The kitchen is well-equipped and the bathroom is supplied with plenty of towels, including hot tub towels. The outside deck with BBQ and table are great and the hot tub is the perfect spot for relaxing after a hike or in the evening enjoying the silence.
Vacasa provided all necessary information prior to arrival and check in was smooth and easy. I would be happy to return!
Pamela B. Mar 2018
Very clean, nice house with comfortable beds and great views of trees from almost every window. Close to town in a nice little neighborhood. Would definitely stay here again!
Jayce W. Feb 2018
This home was completely beautiful, clean and provided a perfect stay for my boyfriend and I for our one year on valentine day. The hot tub in the back was the best part, it was pre heated apron arrival, clean dishes and the only thing we had to buy was the food! Everything was provided for our stay. By far the best cabin rental I’ve ever come cross. I will you use them again and so should you! :)
Nicole H. Dec 2017
Great little cabin with everything you need. Plus a hot tub! Close to Bear mountain
Mitzy N. Dec 2017
Very cute cabin located in quiet (yet very dark) area. Close to Interlaken Shopping Center (Vons, Dollar Tree, Maggio’s), as well as Clean Bear trash site. Small but fully stocked kitchen. One bed mattress very soft, other one very firm. Shower head/hose doesn’t fit properly on wall mounting and needs fixing, otherwise it will fall on your head (it did on mine!). Newer BBQ grill was clean and easy to use. Patio table rather small and easily seen from front of cabin-not my favorite thing. Fully enclosed back yard good for families with little ones. Nice size jacuzzi. Overall happy with our stay and very likely to return in the near future.
Kelly P. Dec 2017
Always enjoy this quaint and cozy cabin. Fantastic location and well stocked. Nice neighbors and very clean/updated nicely.
Marisa Y. Nov 2017
Cute, clean cabin. Hot tub was clean and worked perfectly. Great home base for day trips- and cute patio for bbqing.
Brad J. Sep 2017
Pleasant and quiet neighborhood and neighbors.
Sheri Z. Aug 2017
Very cute cozy cabin on a quiet street. We ate breakfast on the deck every day (summer) and it's just the nicest spot to grill up dinner too. Close to all of the lake activities and hiking trails. We really enjoyed our week.
Chia Jennifer L. Jul 2017
It's good for small family , we went in summer. Will be back in winter
Holly G. Jun 2017
Very clean cabin with comfy beds and couch. Fun hot tub with very cool lighting. Close to lake and restaurants. Very friendly staff. An issue with ants on kitchen counter but overall we had a great weekend and would definitely come again!
Renee P. May 2017
We got really lucky getting this house. We dragged our feet planning a Memorial Weekend getaway.

House was awesome and it had everything we needed.

Be prepared to haul out your own garbage to the dump site in town.
Josyula S. May 2017
House was full of character and super clean, not to mention close access to all the stores and amenities.
Erin K. May 2017
Cute, clean and affordable. Centrally located and easy to find. We will be back very soon!
Trish M. Apr 2017
Great place. Great location. Quiet, charming & clean. Would definitely stay here again.
Allison L. Mar 2017
Property was exactly as described. Great location, house was clean and tidy, plenty of towels, well stocked kitchen, master bed was VERY comfortable - and our family LOVED the hot tub! Accommodates 5 nicely, any more would be a little tight, but our family enjoyed our stay and would recommend Moondrift!
Nicole S. Feb 2017
We enjoyed our stay thoroughly! Would definitely stay here again.
Sarah A. Feb 2017
We fully enjoyed this cabin and will definitely be staying here again. The cabin was walking distance to the bear mountain shuttle so that was super helpful. Beds were comfortable and the spa at night was super relaxing. Plenty of room for 4 people and the kitchen was stocked with all the necessities for cooking meals at night. Customer service was amazing and checking in and out was easy and quick.
Kristen W. Feb 2017
Perfect cozy cabin for a couple or small family. Pet friendly which is great! Great location.
Jessica A. Feb 2017
We really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon!
Elieka G. Jan 2017
Great location. Very clean house.
John L. Jan 2017
Lovely, cozy cabin close to the slopes, not walking distance as described, but certainly just a few minute drive. The rental was clean and tidy. The furnishings were clean and new-ish.
Rachel D. Jan 2017
Very clean, comfortable cabin. Close to Bear Mountain and all of the local attractions. The jacuzzi is very clean, a perfect way to relax after a day in the snow.
Jennifer W. Jan 2017
Our family had a great time. The place was very clean with lots of extra blankets. Quiet location but close to slopes and shops. Would rent again!
Perla P. Jan 2017
I would stay here again. Very neat, cozy and clean.
Dorit H. Dec 2016
Great Cabin with wonderful Jacuzzi. Well appointed kitchen and comfortable bedding. Would love to return here.
Linda F. Dec 2016
Great place to stay and close to just about everything. The second bedroom is great for a family with children.
Julia S. Dec 2016
The cottage was perfect for four people for a weekend stay. It might be too tight for more than 4 people or for a longer period.

Check-in and check-out are super easy.

Having the washer and dryer was a bonus. Kitchen was fully stocked, we only had to bring our own food.

House was clean. Spa was fantastic and we really enjoyed it.

Definitely will use vacasa again in the future.
Kelly C. Nov 2016
This cabin is in a great spot and has everything you need for your stay. Jacuzzi was great! We will be back, thank you.
Robin T. Nov 2016
We had a very nice time staying in this cabin. It is cozy and clean. We brought my daughter and mother and had plenty of room. We enjoyed the fireplace and overall coziness of the cabin. The beds were very comfortable and we liked how the rooms had tvs so we could watch tv in bed at night. The location is awesome. There is a great little coffee shop within walking distance and you are close to the store and hiking trails and the lake. We have stayed in many cabins throughout the years in Big Bear and this has been one of our favorite cabins.
James D. Nov 2016
The property is very nice and in a quiet area very close to everything Big Bear has to offer. The cabin is really comfortable and clean. I would definitely stay there again.
Arotin M. Oct 2016
It was amazing
Tamara M. Oct 2016
Staff was supportive. Property was cozy, clean and quite. Would love to stay there again. No cell phone reception a plus!
Josephine L. Aug 2016
Cozy spot with everything you need
Jorge C. Aug 2016
Decent house but to close to neighbors. Not a lot of privacy
Undram D. Aug 2016
Staff are helpful. Great location.
Candice B. Jul 2016
We were very happy with our stay. Just note that there is no air conditioning so in the summer it can get a little warm during the day. The master bedroom also gets a little warm even with the window open as the cabin next door blocks any breeze from coming through. Place was very clean and had everything we needed and more. Will definitely be staying again!
Kristin C. Jul 2016
It was a great space. Hot tub was fantastic. Great time being able to eat on patio.
