Recent Bear Valley reviews

  • Great home for families or big groups

    "We stayed for a weekend in February. It was our boys (ages 5, 3 and 1) first trip to the snow. The house is multi-level so I wouldn't recommend it for really young kids unless you're ok monitoring them a lot. It worked fine for us, but you have to keep your eyes on them. Pros: - Very nice house, well laid-out and appointed; plenty of sleeping room for several families - Very responsive owners - Nice location just past Arnold on the way to Bear Valley: you can be back in town in 10-12 minutes, and up to Bear Valley in ~25 - Game room in the house is a nice space for kids Cons: - The hot tub didn't work during our stay, which was disappointing since the kids were excited about it (I will note, however, that the owners did try hard to troubleshoot with me over the phone) - You have to do extensive cleaning upon checkout, a bit more than I normally expect with a VRBO or similar rental - The cleaning crew they have seems to be mediocre, as we found trash in a few different nooks of the house; not a huge deal, but this combined with the extensive cleaning guests have to do makes the cleaning fee feel way too high - I realize the owners don't want things to accumulate, but it would be nice if there were a few more shared amenities around the house (and that you're not expected to bring everything, even basics like salt and pepper) - Would prefer to be able to leave the house key upon checkout instead of having to mail it back later"

  • 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 stay at the condo for everyone!

    "The condo was everything listed and then some. Location is perfect being just across from the lodge so an easy walk over there if you need anything. Clean and updated throughout. Extremely well equipped kitchen with high end appliances and everything else you could need. Another great feature is the boot and glove dryer for the kids after snow play. We had three adults and four kids there and no one was cramped. Perfect."
