Bear Valley house description
Enjoy the beautiful Sierra's in the heart of Bear Valley in this large private home with all the modern comforts.
Spring, summer and fall have hiking, biking, swimming, rock climbing, hunting, boating, tennis, and fishing with golf, antiquing, wine tasting and horsebacking thirty minutes away. It's a ten minute stroll to the beach at Bear Valley Lake for swimming, kayaking and volleyball with a short drive to many lakes in the surrounding wilderness.
In winter, Bear Valley Mountain Resort offers downhill skiing and snowboarding while Bear Valley Cross Country provides groomed trails for cross country skiing and there are lots of areas for sledding. You can ski from the house to the free busses provided by Bear Valley Mountain Resort which will take you 3 miles to the ski hill and then at the end of a beautiful day, you can ski the trails back to the house.
The roads in the residential area are not plowed so access is by snowmobile only but the house is within close walking distance to the village where you can find restaurants and shopping. The house is located on the downhill side of the road with an easy entrance onto the main floor. You can also rent snowmobiles from Bear Valley Snowmobile or make arrangements to be taken into the house.
This 3 story, 3,200 square foot home looks out upon a meadow with a stream that runs through it during the spring. Look through a wall of windows from the comfort of large living spaces including a dining room for 10 + bar stools, gourmet kitchen, living room with a big screen satellite TV and a cozy gas 3 sided fireplace which opens into the 'bar' room with a game table and TV.
Additional living space includes a separate bonus room great for movies and perfect for families with children. The home will sleep up to 12 in two master suites with king beds (one master has a two person jetted tub, separate water closet, large glass block shower, TV, huge closet with a washer/dryer and a small loft that has two twin beds). The third bedroom has a queen bed and bath. There is a bonus room that provides a queen sofa bed with it's own bath; the 'bar' room has a double futon and drop down shade for privacy and the 'mud' room has lots of room for coats, skis, boots, etc. with a single futon for additional sleeping.
The house is fully stocked with all paper products, soaps, shampoos, lotions, laundry & dishwasher detergent, coffee, spices, and so much more; everything would need for a comfortable stay.
Also available is a pack-n-play for babies as well as booster seat, walker and stroller. A second washer/dryer is located in a huge shop next to the bonus room with exterior access.

Best Sierra Family Ski Vacation
Best Sierra Family Ski Vacation
A winter vacation at this home in Bear Valley is a wonderful, unique, and first-class experience. Bear Valley village itself takes the family immediately away from the usual urban or suburban existence—a neighborhood of lovely chalets in a car-free winter wonderland. We walked the short distance from the village center to this home, while our luggage arrived on a snowmobile-pulled sled. Concerns about work and school were left behind and attention shifted to building snow forts and snowmen, playing games from the well-stocked cupboard, and sharing meals in the beautiful kitchen and family areas of this unique house. We’ve been coming to Bear Valley with our family and friends for more than a decade, but we discovered this special home on VRBO only last year. We came back this year and hope to come back every year. This home is truly a level above the typical village home. It is in excellent condition, offers wonderful separation for two or three families, and it’s easy to ski to directly from the mountain at the end of the day. Lastly, the owners are wonderfully attentive and offer a class of service that is above and beyond anything we have experienced Bear Valley. An amazing experience and a terrific value.

BEST EVER VACATION RENTAL
BEST EVER VACATION RENTAL
We rented this wonderful house over Christmas and stayed for a full week. It was by far the best stocked and well equipped home we have ever rented. The kitchen is large and has everything you can imagine for cooking. Lot's of space for sleep and play and the whole house is in great condition. Our daughter and her friend loved the 2 loft beds and everyone else sleept like royalty in the comfortable beds. Location is perfect, close enough to walk to the bus and ski-in from the homerun slope at the end of the day. We also had the most epic Utah-like powders show you can imagine (+sunshine) which added to the enjoyment of the week. The owners went to great length to make sure we had a great time and were very responsive to our questions and needs. Can recommend this house without hesitation to anyone who wants to enjoy Bear Valley in the winter or summer!

Spacious and Comfortable Mountain Home
Spacious and Comfortable Mountain Home
We rented this large, beautifully decorated home for our entire family for a weekend wedding and were absolutely delighted. The photos just do not do it justice. The living room area has the largest big screen TV I have ever seen and the speakers and other audio equipment were all first class. Several kids hung out at the game table in a separate area and I loved the kitchen that was well-equipped and had absolutely everything a home kitchen should have. We had a huge, lovely master suite with TV, large dressing room with Jacuzzi type tub, BIG shower and a "closet" the size of a bedroom with washer and dryer. The second master suite was downstairs where we put our son, daughter in law and new 6 mo. old grandson. It included a bedroom, bath, big living area, another bath, TV, and huge storage area with 2nd washer and dryer. The house can easily sleep 12. The owners went out of their way to make sure we had a comfortable and memorable stay. They even provided us with a Pack and Play, stroller and high chair so we didn't have to bring them. All of our other relatives who were at Bear Valley for the wedding had rented through VRBO and were not happy with their choices--they were so envious of us, all of them ended up hanging out at our house to enjoy our beautiful deck and other amenities. Easy walking distance to lodge. You will not be disappointed with this house.
