My family (8 year-old son and sister and family) and I stayed at Bear Valley Vista for four wonderful nights. The property was exactly as described and more! It's difficult to put into words the sounds of sand hill cranes or the swaying of cattails. The house was impeccably well-stocked and very clean. It had all the modern conveniences mixed with the feeling of being in a home built in the early 1900s. I grew up in the Bear Valley area and it truly did feel like coming home again. I highly recommend Bear Valley Vista to those who want to feel a sense of solitude and comfort.
