About Bonnie Powell
Bonnie (writer), Bart (photographer), and Bonnie's mom Linda (retired, dog lover) bought this house together as a place to get away from the Bay Area craziness and let our young daughter run wild outside. We love hiking, hammocking, swimming, rock climbing, and kayaking here in summer, and skiing, sledding, and sitting by the fire in winter!
Bonnie Powell purchased this House in 2016
Why Bonnie Powell chose Bear Valley
Bonnie went skiing with a friend in Bear Valley for the first time in January 2016 and appreciated how uncrowded and low-key the slopes were. We came back in summer all together and just fell in love with the peacefulness and all the outdoor activities. We bought this house somewhat on a whim before the big Winter of 2016/17 -- but haven't regretted it for a moment!

Nice and comfortable stay experience.
Had a great time staying here.
Great house for summer mountain visit
Really well equipped, comfortable home. Perfect for a family.
Thanks Jennifer. Come back anytime!
Excellent mountain vabiny
Particularly enjoyed the fully functional kitchen. We cook as a family and apparently so do the owners of this cabin. Made the food management very enjoyable.
Wonderful stay at Ursa Major
We rented the house for a week in the summer and had a wonderful stay. The house is fantastic, the location splendid and we couldn't have asked for a more gracious host!
Everything is fully explained, the house is not missing anything - all is set for a great vacation! Thank you Bonnie for welcoming our family in your home in the mountains
Thanks so much Celine! Glad you guys enjoyed yourselves.
This is our second stay at this great cabin. We love the modern esthetic rather than kitschy country decor of so many cabins. Nice proximity to the lodge and shuttle to the mountain. We love to be able to ski home for lunch. So much snow. So few people around. We had a fabulous few days!
Belated thanks for the lovely review, Robin! Glad to have you back..
Just What We Needed
This house was perfect for us - what else can I say? We love Bear Valley, we love being in the village loop, and we loved the style, layout, and features of this house!
