About Shane O' Rourke

I moved to the US from Ireland in 1994: I have been going to Dorrington and Arnold close to Bear Valley for over 15 years. We love the trees and the skiing and the tranquility of the mountains. I work in Media and Sports.

Shane O' Rourke purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Shane O' Rourke chose Dorrington

15 years ago I discovered the short drive and hassle free ski experience of Dorrington. I love that it is not overdeveloped and love being surrounded by big trees and the smell of mountain air, and the skiing. If you are looking for a mellow get away, this place is heaven!

What makes this cabin unique

This is great cabin for families and for entertaining. New and clean with everything you need to have a great get away in the trees. Cabin is stocked with games/movies ping pong table TVs in each room and of course the hot tub !

The house is gorgeous and even better looking in person! It is comfortable, cozy and also modern. The little extras like full kitchen, spices, coffee, makes it much better than the average rental. Add in the hot tub and it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the mountains. We will definitely be back!!

Perfect for two families

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay close to bear valley. 3 comfortable bedrooms each with its own full bathroom. The open layout is great for entertaining. We enjoyed the fireplace and the kids especially enjoyed the ping pong table and hot tub. There were a lot of pantry items which could be useful. But there was also a lot of packaged food left in the cabinets, refrigerator and freezer left by previous guests that some renters might want cleaned out. We would love to stay here again and would absolutely recommend it!

Comfortable weekend stay with the kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lazy Bear Lodge the weekend of July 21-24 and had an excellent time. The neighborhood is tucked away in the woods and is very quiet. Location is great- about 5 minutes or so from Big Trees State Park and maybe 10 minutes to White Pines Lake, which is a fun spot to visit with young kids. The neighborhood even has a swimming hole if you want to stay ultra local. The house itself is very comfortable with plenty of room for kids to play indoors or outdoors. The Roku box was pretty clutch for cartoons on demand. Next time we head out towards Arnold we'd definitely stay there again. Thanks!

Love this place

  • 5 of 5

This is a really comfortable place to spend a long weekend inside or out. Great for 2 small families to combine and relax together. The jacuzzi and karaoke machine are a winning combo. And all three bedrooms have access to a private bathroom which really is nice and gives it a more upscale feel which is a treat:-) We just completed our second visit and it won't be our last! - Cat

Spacious Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for just over a week and found the house to be very comfortable. The access and proximity to Snowshoe Lake is hard to find in a vacation rental and we enjoyed that. The house has plenty of beds and all the things in the kitchen you need to cook at home. The neighboring houses are close, but we didn't see any neighbors the entire week we were there. It was very quiet and peaceful.
