About the Owner
Hey I'm Mike I co-host 10 cabins in Big bear and own 2 others! In 2014 I decided to buy a home in Big Bear to use for myself and to share with others. Because of my love for Big Bear and the homes I manage and the renters staying in them, In the last 3 years that has blown up to me now owning 2 cabins, Milo Bear and Roni's Retreat and managing 10 others all around Big Bear Lake.
I love the Red Sox, Hartford Whalers (Still miss them) and rescuing animals. I was looking for the perfect getaway home in the mountains and found Milo Bear cabin (named after my cat who passed away a few years ago) and in 2107 I bought Roni's Retreat (Named after Milo's sister who passed away a few years ago as well.)
I want to provide great, clean no hassle vacation get aways where they can bring all members of their family. (Dogs always welcome and no charge)
I am hoping to travel more so am willing to talk housing exchanges as well.

Cancellation Policy: Guest receives 100 % if cancellation occurs at least 45 days before arrival; No refunds within 45 days of arrival.Our cabin is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood. We are not looking to rent this out as a "party house” as there are other places in Moonridge and Big Bear for that type of getaway. Therefore, we do limit renters to people who are 25+ years old. Potential renters may be asked to verify their age by providing a copy of their driver’s license or another form of official identification. QUIET HOURS: The official quiet hours for Big Bear Lake are 10 pm to 6 am. Please keep noise to a minimum outside after 10 pm. If you use the spa after 10 pm, loud talking and music are not allowed as per Big Bear city rules. Please respect our neighbors and all local laws. If the Code Enforcement Department is called on you due to disruptions during quiet hours, too many people, too many cars, or any other violations, you will be responsible for the $150+ fine. If Code Enforcement is called on you a second time, please know that you will be kicked out of our rental property without a refund. The official check-in time is after 3 pm. The official check-out time is 11 am. If you stay past 11 am without permission, the cleaners will charge me and, therefore, I must charge you $100. If you stay past 11:30 am, you will be charged for the entire next night stay as well (without being able to stay). PETS: Your pets are permitted in rental units only with prior approval. Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up any / all pet refuse and hair. All pets must be up-to-date on rabies vaccinations and all other vaccinations. Heartworm prevention is highly recommended. All pets are to be treated with Advantage or similar topical flea and tick repellent three (3) days prior to arrival if not already on meds. Fleas and ticks are very rampant in this area and can cause harmful / fatal illness to humans and pets. All items above are the sole responsibility of the pet owner. The cabin owners assume no responsibility for illness or injury that humans or pets may incur while on the premises. Pets may NOT be left outside alone at any time. There are many wild animals indigenous to the Big Bear area such as coyotes and bears. Therefore, we are adamant that you never leave a pet unattended outside. We also insist that you ALWAYS walk your dog on a leash. This is important for the protection of your pet. It is recommended that you be very vigilant when walking your dog from dusk to dawn. Coyotes are primarily active at night, but have been spotted during the day. Dusk is particularly active time for them. Coyotes often travel in packs and, although they rarely attack a dog on leash, it has happened. The best prevention is to stay vigilant, keep your dog nearby on a leash, and be aware of your surroundings. We are not responsible for any injuries to any of your pets caused by wild animals nor are we responsible for any pet allergies you may experience due to pets previously staying in home. As set forth above, please be aware that there are many other wild animals in Big Bear such as raccoons, lizards, and ground squirrels. Please be respectful of them and do your best to ensure your pet does not attack local wildlife. AT CHECK-IN: This property is professionally cleaned on the morning of your stay. All linens are washed, beds are made, dishes put away, and the bathroom, kitchen, & spa are sanitized, etc. Upon check-in, please look around to make sure everything is to your satisfaction.
