Recent Bear Valley reviews

  • Great location + Great for families

    "For the past 4 years, our group of 3 families (6 adults + 7 kids) have been taking an annual trip to ski Bear Valley - to reconnect by spending time together. Prior to this year's trip, BV got dumped on (56-72" depending on whom you ask), and by the time we arrived on Friday morning, all of the roads had been cleared. The house is ~600' from the parking lot/snowmobile loading zone - close enough to just walk and carry/pull on sleds our things. The close proximity made getting our children (ages 2-10) down and back from the ski shuttle very easy, even after a long day of skiing. The layout of the house is unusual - I give a lot of detail here so you understand how open the house is (i.e. minimal privacy) and how flexible you need to be to share bathrooms. You enter through the sliding door/deck on the middle level into the living/dining room. Farther back is the kitchen, 1 half-bath and then 2 bedrooms and one of these has its own 1/2 bath. The bedroom on the left has a Queen. Across the hallway is a 1/2 bath with a shower + toilet. The bedroom on the right has a full size bed - but, there is no door to this bedroom, just a curtain. Attached to this bedroom is a 1/2 bath (shower/tub + sink), and there is no door. Anyone using this sink/shower is in full view of anyone lying on the bed. Downstairs is a bunk room with 4 bunks/8 beds and its own 3/4 bath (sink + shower + toilet). There is a W/D downstairs too. On the top floor is a 3 part loft - back part has a Queen bed, but no door; 1/2 bath (sink + toilet) with a door; and 2 twin beds - no door and open railing (not child-proof) overlooking the living/dining area. Despite the odd layout and the good fortune that our 3 families are very close, we were able to make due. The bunk room is AWESOME for the kids - they fell asleep talking and laughing and they woke up talking and laughing. The house is overall clean and tidy, rustic and homey in decor. Heat is provided by gas-furnace - some rooms heat too well, others less so - adjust vents to normalize. The fireplace is awesome for aesthetics, not for warmth; there was plenty of firewood/kindling below the deck. There were plenty of plates, glasses, mugs, pots/pans, etc. There were 9 chairs for the dining table, so we had a kids-seating, then a parents-seating for meals. Plenty of books, VHS tapes for the TV/VCR. DirecTV, No DVD player, No internet/wifi, very spotty cell coverage. This house was a great home base for our reunion ski weekend."

  • Great cabin, great owner!

    "We visited during the winter with a group of 12 (6 adults and 6 kids) and had a wonderful time! The cabin is perfect for a large group- plenty of space for everyone and the kids LOVED the upstairs playroom. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you'll need. The cabin is conveniently located off highway 4 and plenty of driveway space for our 3 SUVs. Finally, the owner is absolutely wonderful! Full of great tips, very responsive and accommodating. Would definitely recommend staying here!"

  • Nice, clean, spacious

    "We really enjoyed the cabin. So many rentals smell funky and are dark and cramped. This one is a great place to stay! The kitchen is well-stocked and everything worked. Heaters in every room. Big, comfy living room and dining area. We had to reboot the WiFi a couple of times but it worked well enough. Bring a baby gate if you have a little one since the stairs to the loft are steep. Thanks for making it so welcoming!"

  • Awssome place

    "We stayed at this great cabin for a long holiday weekend. It's a great place, for couples or small family since it's got only one room with a door. Huge loft area with more beds and board games. But specious kitchen which i loved and dining living area. Lots of natural light every window has nice view from living room area especially the deck overlooking the river which is just few steps away. Take your morning coffee cup and fishing pole, who knows, you might catch something while having coffee. Might be hard for someone to find the place if you arrive at night, maybe bigger sign or the actual address number at the tree with current sign would be a helpful. It looks like a driveway but you need to drive a bit down to see the cabin. But in general, beautiful and clean cabin, great location and i would recommend it. First time at this cabin but not the last i hope. Thanks for everything"
