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 location and modern condo

    "Better than we expected. The condo is spacious and our group of 8 (four adults, four kids) had plenty of space. Really nice bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms makes this a winner. We also liked that is 2 mins walking distance from the shuttle stop. Would definitely stay again."

  • Very nice and cozy stay...

    "The big advantage of this apartment that it's on the second floor, and since the snow this year is literally up to the second floor balcony, the other first floor apartment windows were completely covered up. The interior is homey and well furnished, there is space for everyone, bunk beds for quite reading, an isolated bedroom for a quite time napping and a nook area bed for rebellious teens. For example, while our teenage boy was playing games on his phone in the nook sleeping area and trying to be independent, he had a clear view of the TV and the shows we were watching on Netflix in front of the lit real wood burning fireplace, so at some point he gave up the games and joined us on a couch for family time, and that was nice... By the way the wood burning fireplace needs a bit of patience to get it going, but once it get's going, it create a cozy environment and emits a lot of heat, and the place itself heats up very nicely from the heaters if left on a bit higher temperature... The bottom line, we really recommend this place, it has everything you need being away from home and much, much more, and you can't beat the location, it's the best in town..."

  • Great place to relax with friends in the mountains.

    "We had a great stay at the Rainbow Connection cabin. The quiet neighborhood (away from the roads) was beautiful and peaceful. It was a great area to walk/XC ski and sled right outside the door. We had a nice fire in the woodstove, it was an easy walk to the cabin from the road and parking, and there's quick access to all the good stuff at Bear Valley as well. We enjoyed getting out to ski and sled, but hanging out at the cabin around the fire and cooking meals to share at the big table were probably the best parts of our stay. The cabin had everything we needed and was comfy and cozy. The pictures and descriptions on the site were accurate. The decor is funky, but that was part of the charm. Thanks to Mark and Freya for being responsive and making sure we had what we needed."
