About the property

WARM, COZY & SELF-CLEANING! Saves $$!! No huge cleaning fee added on!

Bring your X-C or downhill skis or go sledding or hiking, kayaking, cycling, and fishing and have all the fun of the great outdoors right at your doorstep with all the comforts of home!

This condo sits in the sweet spot of Bear Valley: Just across the street from the lodges, shops and the shuttle that takes skiers and snowboarders and sledders to the ski resort. Just 5 minutes from Lake Alpine and four other high alpine lakes and rivers with world-class fishing. Hiking trails just up the road.

Don't get stuck driving 30-45 minutes (each way!) up the hill from Arnold, or Dorrington each day!

And it's perfect for family-time!

The condo has WiFi, a flat-screen TV, DirectTV, an HDMI cable so that you can stream from your laptop to the TV and a landline.

(There's also WiFi across the street in Bear Valley Lodge's brand new lounge with its 4-story stone fireplace -- all visitors welcome.)

Cook at the condo -- or enjoy one of the restaurants in the lodge.

Just down the street from the biggest (and most beautiful) X-country ski area in California!

TWO Sno-parks within five miles!!

Bring your favorite family games or your laptop with your favorite family movies (there's a flat-screen TV and HDMI to link your laptop to it) and snuggle in for evenings of warmth and comfort after some great days on the slopes.

Bring your X-C, downhill skiing, sledding or hiking, kayaking, cycling, and fishing stuff and your own linens (sheets and bath and kitchen towels) and have the weekend of your lives!

$600 monthly rate (off-season, April 15-November 15 for lease of several months). Contact me with questions.

Thanks! DeAnne

Why DeAnne chose Bear Valley

Just across the street from the lodge, shops and the shuttle that takes skiers and snowboarders and sledders to the ski resort.

What makes this condo unique

I want visitors to have a great time. I have been very careful to equip the condo with everything you might want to make your precious vacation days as comfortable and convenient as possible. That way you can spend more time having fun!

Clean, Functional, but not pretty

  • 4 of 5

Good location. Easy to find. Owner was responsive, and returned deposit quickly. Clean. Functional: heat, wifi, stove, satellite tv, and everything worked well. Plenty of bed covers and lots of little accessories. Double beds were comfortable. Lower bunks of triple bunk bed might be claustrophobic for some people.

We rented at the end of the ski season. The condo is on the ground floor. The only window in the condo looks out on the deck. But apparently to prevent slow sliding off the roof onto the deck, plywood sheets were erected which blocked most of the light. Quite a bit of snow was piled against the plywood. We would have given it 5 stars but for the lack of a functional window. But during the summer the window would be fine. Renters are responsible for cleaning the condo, and the owner provides a detailed list of items to be cleaned. All cleaning supplies are provided. We enjoyed the stay.

Another great Christmas vacation in the Bear Valley village

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at DeAnne's place. We enjoyed our stay very much. The new bed is a welcome touch.

The room is perfect for a family of 4. Very warm and toasty. The location is great, walking distances to ski shuttle, Bear Valley Lodge and cross country ski.

There was a little incident with the lock, but everyone, from the condo management to the host, were very helpful, and problem got resolved right away. Will stay again next year.
