Great dog-friendly property. One of our dogs is short-haired and couldn't get enough of laying in front of the gas fireplace in the 2nd floor screen porch room. You will be finding reasons to hang out in there even when it's cold outside. It was waaay quiet at night and peaceful. This is not your standard vacation home rental. It is a step back in time with modern household amenities plus those little things that you won't pack but might need---EVERY pan/pot/plate/utensil you could need to cook and a few staples you weren't expecting. Pens, paper, flashlights, scotch tape, blankets & pillows galore. And, don't bring a book to read while you chill because they are EVERYWHERE all over three floors, and you will have overpacked! Games for adults and kids. WIFI, satellite, large grassy area outside, nice people nearby. You can't NOT find something to do here. Plus, there's lots of tourist attractions not far away. Farms are ubiquitous here. Stores are nearby for supplies (less than 20 minutes away). Lots of room for many people, nicely-decorated, comfortable rooms. Great front porch with lots to sit on. Listing on website is accurate, the owner was EASY to communicate with and very helpful, home was clean. I'd recommend Bear Valley to anyone and wish I could think of a reason to come here with a group.
