Reviewer Comments:

We have always enjoyed staying at the Hicks Tree Fort and have stayed thereat least three times!The recent upgrades make it so nice and comfy. The bathrooms are beautiful, double pane windows, new fridge. We love the decor of two bedrooms is delightful: the snowy owl room and the bear room. Our grandson loves the bear room.The easy entrance driveway makes getting to the front door a snap.We enjoyed the walks around hte neighborhood, and of course getting to the top for winter sports! We have been coming to Bear Valley for 36 years and this house is a plus.

The staff was non-responsive once the house was paid for, directions were incorrect and the house was in disrepair. I will be renting/purchasing from another company.

Owner's Response: During these guests stay we never heard once from them if there were problems? We are available 24 hrs. a day if there are any problems and do not ignore issues or concerns that occur. We have a emergency number available for our renters to call should they need our assistance at anytime. Our goal is to provide a wonderful stay for our guests so they return again. This is a great cabin, not sure what despair they encountered during their stay???

My friends and I spent Christmas time in this cozy house. It was a great place to go. All windows look to the big trees. There is a very quiet and peaceful neighbourhood, and you smell the pine trees and redwoods. Recommend it to those who enjoy a village style house. The kitchen is all equiped. Our teenage kids had fun playing pool in a play room. There is also a great set of games for all family. A lot of family movies, too.

We had a splendid snow storm during 4/11-13: about three feet on the road down to Lake Alpine. Fortunately a snowmobile had come through. We went up to the saddle, looking down on Duck Lake, then left along the ridge about a mile to do some telemarks. The cabin was our favorite, funky and clean. Two recommendations: something needed on the bath tub bottom so that we WILL NOT SLIP AND FALL while showering. Two: explicit directions for using the DVD. Other than that, really a fine cabin for relaxing.

We spent New Years weekend here and it was a great time! Very clean, lovely home. We were able to find everything we needed. The only thing was that we were given the wrong key so we had to drive back to the office and get the right key. That was a hassle since it was so icy everywhere that it was hard to get in and out of our driveway. We wasted over an hour. Make sure you have the right key! Otherwise, it was great! No other houses super close so we had privacy. Lots of fun for playing in the snow around the house.
