Property description

** All-new carpet added throughout the condo in Spring 2015 !!! **

THE BASICS:

Our condo is located in Bear Valley Village away from the main cluster of buildings. The roads are always plowed and accessible. Our building has its own private parking lot.

The condo is a tri-level.

The master loft has a king-size bed, big closets, and excellent windows looking over a forested hill to the east. Great for sunrises and star-gazing.

The main floor with the front entrance has a living / dining area with kitchen and a full bathroom. There is a brick insert wood fireplace, a big TV with stereo-surround, DishNetwork, DVD, CD, private balcony, and all appliances including Mr. Coffee, microwave, toaster, pots and pans etc. There is also a gas BBQ on the balcony.

The ground level beneath the main floor has a large room with four single beds and a second TV with DVD as well as a private bedroom with another king-size bed. A second full bathroom is on this floor.

On the main floor, the couch is also a queen-size hide-a-bed. There are also foam pads for another 2 or 3 people if you like.

The condo sleeps 8 easily and 10 comfortably (two king + four singles + hide-a-bed).

There is a ski locker for your gear.

Everything except food & firewood is supplied including clean bedsheets, pillow cases, towels, soap, t.p., silverware, plates, etc. There is a washer and dryer.

The ski resort is two miles up the highway. Nobody is closer. There are no condos or cabins at the resort itself.

If you don't want to drive, a free bus leaves from the Bear Valley Lodge, which is a short walk in ski boots around the corner from our condo. This bus leaves every morning on the hour. On weekends, there are also 8:30am and 9:30am buses. The buses return from the resort on the half hour until 4:30pm, or, if you know what you're doing, you can get an end-of-day bonus by skiing Home Run back to the condo. (Please don't attempt this unless you're familiar with the area. People do get lost.)

Dozens of miles of cross-country skiing can be accessed directly from our condo.

There is fantastic sledding and hiking on The Rocks straight across from our front door.

**** This decision may not be very 21st Century, but we actually prefer some human contact. Please call if you're interested or email Jeff directly at jeff at jverse dot com. Even if we're booked, we can put you on a cancellation list. Once in a while someone will back out of Christmas or President's Day. If you're at the top of the wait list, it's yours; but if you don't contact us, we'll never know you wanted it!

We're happy to answer any questions. We've been skiing and playing at Bear Valley for three generations and have pretty much done it all.


IN THE SUMMERTIME:

Our place offers superb hiking in all directions.

Great boating and fishing at Lake Alpine, Spicer Reservoir and Stanislaus River plus swimming at Bear Lake.

There are mountain bike trails for many, many miles.

The week-long Music Festival is not to be missed!


AND NOW SOME ADJECTIVE-LADEN HYPERBOLE FOR THOSE WHO JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH!!! ;)

This beautifully furnished luxury condo features sunny, southern exposure into the master loft. This is a magical place to begin your day gazing at the magnificent pines or to enjoy the star-studded nights.

A quick walk brings you to shops, restaurants, and the free shuttle to the ski resort. Right outside our front door are marvelous trees ascending gentle granite hills. The Rocks provide fantastic areas in which to play, sled, and walk up to finish your day with a bottle of wine and gorgeous views of the sunset.

Bear Valley is a jewel on the western slopes of Alpine county. It's located off of Highway 4, a less-traveled and highly maintained road that never closes in winter, unlike the pass into Tahoe. Highway 4 doesn't experience the Tahoe traffic jams, either!!!!!!

Spring, summer and fall offer hiking, biking, swimming and fishing with fewer crowds and more spectacular scenery than in most places in California. It's a 15 minute stroll from our condo to the beach at Bear Lake or a short drive to five other lakes or the Hell's Kitchen area on the Stanislaus River. Thousands of acres of forest surround the Village.
