About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-8)
187% of normal Sierra snow pack. Get up there and enjoy the abundance!
My location is perfect for kids/snow play/sledding.
Beautiful private home 7000 feet up in the High Sierras, 20 feet from the Stanislaus National Forest. Panoramic forest and mountain views to the South and East. Hiking and skiing trails right out the front door. Complete privacy and solitude. So many windows that you feel like you're outside when you're inside.
Most quiet during the spring thaw, when 'The snow is melting into music.' (John Muir). Wildflowers abounding in July and August, during the annual classical music festival. Glorious warm days and blazing aspens in the Autumn.
Winter brings the full California ski experience. Roads in the residential area are not plowed, so no cars are allowed to enter, and everything remains completely white. The snowmobile ride up from the village adds to the adventure! Road's end location is perfect for sledding.
The two bedrooms, each with an adjoining full bath, are on the entry level. The master bedroom has a woodstove and panoramic views. It has a king-size bed and a twin. The smaller bedroom has a twin bed, and also a trundle bed which can be used as one or two twins. The whole second story is one large room, with a woodstove and windows all around. It has a half bath and futons for four.
What Guests Say:
The views from your cabin are outstanding and they just made us want to sit and relax and enjoy the comfortable surroundings. I ski at Bear Valley often, mostly just to be in the Sierras and take in the view, and that feeling was even better in the nice summer weather from the comfort of your dining room table with a glass of wine! John and Carol - Livermore CA
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in your mountain home. The views were spectacular, and the house was very comfortable. We had a couple of days of great weather and one day to enjoy a rainy day by the fire. Neither of us had been to Bear Valley before, and we found lots to see and do. It must be beautiful there in the winter, and when all of the wild flowers are in bloom. We also enjoyed driving around the neighborhood and looking at the many beautiful homes.
Joyce and Dan - Campbell, CA
'My wife and I had a wonderful relaxing weekend at your cabin. Everything went fine and everything worked. Loved the view from the top of the hill behind the cabin. Reading a book and taking our morning coffee on the deck was so serene. You have a great location and a great cabin. We'll tell our friends and family about this Bear Valley jewel.' Chuck - Martinez, CA
'Everything in the cabin worked great for us, with the fire keeping us plenty warm at night. We hope to go up again next year and add a couple more days to the stay..Really enjoyed the deck and views along with all the stars at night...Thanks again and great place!!' John - Livermore, CA
'We would like to thank you for letting us use your beautiful treetop home in Bear Valley. It was more than we expected. The views were fantastic and the furnishings, etc. were just like home! Very comfortable and in good taste.' Gail - San Jose, CA
'Over the past few years, we have stayed in a number of Bear Valley homes... I must say, however, that I enjoyed the time my family spent at your home more so than the rest. What a view!' Chris and Pam - La Mesa, CA
'Thank you so much for the opportunity to rent your cabin for a couple of weeks. We had a great time, and never tired of the incredible view and comfortable accommodations. We look forward to staying at your place again in the future!' Jeri and Tom - Berkeley, CA
'Although this was our first trip to Bear, we'll definitely be coming again this winter. We've stayed in many parts of the Sierra over the years, but were really impressed with Bear Valley, especially as a multi-activity family area. I hope our plans and the availability of your cabin coincide again.' Peter - Los Altos, CA
