Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Bear Valley is a family-oriented Sierra mountain resort in Alpine County, located between Lake Tahoe and Yosemite, only 3.5 hours from the San Francisco Bay area. Bear Valley is located off of Highway 4, a less traveled and highly maintained road that almost never closes in winter. In the Winter, Bear Valley cabins are closed to cars, (pedestrian and snowmobile access only) adding to its beauty and peacefulness. After you park once in the central parking lot, this cabin is only a 5-10 minute walk from the Lodge and Restaurants. FREE shuttle buses take you right to the ski lodge every hour and back home on the half hour, or you can ski down the Home Run at the end of the day, right to the cabin door!

This updated and cozy cabin features four bedrooms and a loft, two full baths, large living room with gas stove, and updated kitchen. There are three bedrooms upstairs: Room #1 has a full-size bed and connects to a bathroom; Room #2 has a queen-size bed; and Room #3 has two twins beds. The downstairs bedroom #4 has a queen-size bed.

Bear Valley offers a great variety of activities from skiing in winter to hiking, biking, and other summer activities including classical and popular music festivals. If you are looking for a less crowded alternative to other busy mountain resorts like Lake Tahoe, Bear Valley is the place for you.

We provide plastic sleds for you to carry in your belongings; snowmobile transportation service can be arranged from the Bear Valley Transportation Center if required for an extra fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found your cabin to be quite comfortable and convenient. We would definitely recommend it to our friends who ski or just want to have fun in the snow.



Thanks,

Cozy cabin with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This mountain cabin is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need. The house was literally buried under the snow. The snow shovels and sleds in the entry way came in handy. Kitchen and living are nicely sized and very attractive. A great rental!

Cozy, homey, peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Cozy Cabin. It was very homey, in that it felt more like being in a home than in a hotel. We had all the supplies we needed. The eight of us comfortably fit there. It was a surprisingly close walk to the parking lot, even though it felt like we were far away. I'd be happy to go back!

Beautiful, warm, cozy cabin. It was just perfect for a weekend in the mountains. Thank you Sue

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our weekend getaway. Walking distance to the village shops & bear valley resort shuttle. The sleds were helpful to transport our luggage. Kitchen had everything we could have needed. Fireplace and floor heaters worked well to keep us warm. We had a fantastic time. Thank you for sharing your home.

Wonderful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing long weekend in Bear Valley and truly enjoyed the cabin! The location was perfect and the kids loved it. Backyard had pine cones to play with and rocks to climb and enjoy. Everything was a close walk: nature trails, hike up to the lake, the lodge, and rock climbing. The cabin was clean and spacious and had a wonderful kitchen for us to cook and BBQ. We really look forward to returning again!
