Big Bear Mountain in the San Bernardino National Forest is now home to the modern, upscale, eco-friendly and unique vacation rentals of Midnight Moon Cabins — perfect for family travel, four-legged family members included!
The three vacation rentals — Moondance, Firefly and Moonshine — are located in different areas of Big Bear, but all offer Mid-Century Modern décor celebrating minimalism and sustainable luxury. Each is dog-friendly, as well.
Moondance’s open floorplan includes two bedrooms that can accommodate up to five guests. With incredible mountain views and a location in one of Big Bear’s most desirable neighborhoods, it is nearby other mountain resorts, hiking paths, Big Bear Zoo and the town of Big Bear Lake Village.
Firefly’s two bedrooms can accommodate up to four guests, welcoming them with stylish modern décor and thoughtful amenities. Bear Mountain and the Snow Summit shuttle are two short blocks away, as are miles of adjacent trails. Big Bear Lake Village is two miles away.
Moonshine celebrates timeless natural splendor, also in one of the area’s most desired neighborhoods. Accommodating up to six guests per night, it’s also conveniently located to all nearby attractions.
“Whether you’re searching for the perfect romantic getaway in the mountains or a place to bring the whole family, Midnight Moon Cabins has got you covered,” said Sarah Salvatore, partner, Midnight Moon Cabins. “Adventurous couples can enjoy a day on the slopes or a romantic hike in the area. If cozy fireplaces and lazy snow days wrapped in luxe bedding are your style, then this is exactly where you will want to be.”
All three cabins feature EV chargers, unique among rentals in the area. Prices range $299–499 per night, but vary seasonally.

As ecotourism and responsible travel become more popular, destinations look for ways to promote their rural and natural areas and preserve local ways of life. Agritourism — staying in farms or rural houses — is perfect for family travel, offering a chance for children to meet and interact with local people. It is not only a highly sustainable form of tourism, but also a more relaxing vacation compared to trips trudging through cities with children in tow.
