Recent Bear Valley reviews

  • Wonderful cabin

    "We spent another fun filled weekend at this cabin in Bear Valley and always look forward to coming back. The area and scenery are spectacular and the cabin has everything you need for a comfortable stay. In the winter, the location is great since it is at the end of a cul de sac, so you don't have snowmobiles speeding by all the time. The owner is also very nice, responsive, and accommodating."

  • Secluded Cabin in the Woods

    "Great place to take your pets and launch day trips from. The dogs and I went to Utica Reservoir, Highland Lake, and Wheeler Ridge. (Make sure you have good suspension for the first two. The roads are rough.) We also drove over to Markleeville one day and down to Murphys another to give our feet a rest. The cabin was comfortable and clean and far away from everyone. The short hike to the meadow nearby was a highlight with bunches of wildflowers and a bit of water in the creek for the dogs to play in. We've been home for two days and the dogs are still sulking."

  • Absolutely fantastic!

    "If you are looking for a true snowy wonderland experience, this is it! If you are already familiar with the whole Bear Valley cabins situation, you already understand the layout - but if like us you it is all new to you, make sure you read the directions. (Our other couple arrived first, in the rainy dark after a long drive, and were not the happiest as they wandered around in deep snow looking for sign posts in the rain.) So if you will be arriving at night please DO read the directions thoroughly, bring strong flashlights, and make sure you know where you are going, as it is a tiny bit tricky. But it is WELL worth the effort - once we found our beautiful cabin, we were beyond thrilled. As the instructions state, you park in the plowed parking lot and walk a fairly short distance on snow covered roads to the cabin. You can also arrange for snowmobile taxi service (for a very low fee) or collect sleds on the porch to fetch your belongings from your car. After that you are in the most pristine, idyllic world. It is quiet and beautiful. It is also an easy walk over to the lodge if you want a drink, a library book, to rent skis or a snowmobile, or really anything. But why would you? The house is gorgeous. The fireplace is gas, keeps everything toasty (and you never need to chop wood or breath in smoke). The bedrooms and baths are spotless and up to date. The kitchen and dining room are comfy and charming. This is not a cabin furnished with someone's mismatched outcast furniture, but a very lovingly cared-for home. One day we rented skis in the lodge, caught the shuttle bus (which leaves right there) up to Bear Valley, enjoyed the slopes all day, and then skied back down, returned our skis and strolled home. If you have your own skis you could catch the shuttle up and just ski straight to your door - it is a beautiful long run. There is also a gorgeous cross-country area just across the road. We also rented snow mobiles, just for fun - a first time adventure. Can't say enough about how beautiful it was. We give this cabin our highest rating. Just be aware you can't stroll in and out -- to us that was part of the fun, but if someone in your group isn't up to walking in snow, that may be an issue. Otherwise, it really makes this far and away a much more special place - one you really won't forget"

  • Delightful home

    "We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Lyons' family cabin. What a perfect home for snow play. As advertised, the mud room was the perfect staging area for all our outdoor fun. They had shovels and sleds galore. The house itself could have fit a much bigger family, or two families, comfortably. Great place for a family reunion. The kitchen is very well appointed with everything you might need, and there were toys, games, and books for our kids. Beautiful views from every window. The front yard was delightful for building snow forts and some jr. sledding. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We will be back!"
