Happy Comfort in Bear Valley
This cozy condo was just that - very cozy and
truly comfortable! Perfect for our needs.
It was centrally located, had everything we
needed, and the host was super: friendly, helpful, caring, easy to work with. The information and maps about the condo were spot on and thoughtfully designed.
Bear Valley condo
The property was comfortable and close to our venue. I did not pay close attention to what was included, not having WiFi was challenging as the cell reception was weak so could not use our hotspot. We needed a secure access, so using a public access was not always helpful.
So sorry to hear that the cell service and wifi was difficult. It is all over the board in Bear Valley. It definitely seems to come and go. Just going over to the library, 2 min. walk always guarantees wifi or cell service. Verizon definitely seems to work the best in any mountain area. I do hope that you ha a wonderful time.
Great location for family fun!
This was our first trip to Bear Valley and have never been in there we really were not sure what to expect. The grounds were a bit difficult to navigate when we arrived late Friday night because there was so much snow some signs were covered but, other than that the location was perfect. You can literally walk to the cross country ski area and the shuttle bus that goes to and from the ski resort was effortless!
Yes, the condo is dated and there is no WiFi as others have noted in their review but, it has everything you need plus more! the beds are plenty and comfortable and warm. the kitchen is small an quaint but it was well stocked and the unit itself was very clean. The storage locker was a plus for all of our snow boards too.
Patti is quick to respond to emails and gave us great tips for first timers. We will defiantly be going back next season.
So glad that you had a wonderful time. Indeed the wifi comes and goes. Sometimes it is really great, and sometimes not so much. patti
I read earlier reviews from January (2019) and agree that the condo could use an update, but the retro feel is also part of its charm. The two levels and the loft are ideal for families since you can stick the kids downstairs and enjoy a bit of downtime on the main floor. If you go up during winter and definitely be sure to take an ice scraper and shovel (we had the former not the latter). Also, our phones couldn't pick up the WiFi from the lodge (that is nearby). There is no private connection available. Our laptop did, however, pick up the lodge WiFi but was spotty and not very reliable.
So glad you enjoyed your visit. Indeed there was crazy snow. That lower level is so very loved by kids. As I had mentioned to you, we did have a shovel available in the ski closet, and someone disappeared it. We do hope that you will come again.
Cute place overall
Liked the place overall. Priced a bit high considering the outdated condition and prices compared to other local rentals. Was surprised to find no WiFi in this day and age. Would consider staying again but only on weekends as I need WiFi for work during the week.
I do hope that you had a good time. I am so sorry that the wifi wasn't working when you were there. I do hope that you will come back. patti
Cozy, simple accomodations
Nice layout with upstairs loft bedroom, on the lowest level the family room was converted to a kids bedroom with TV the kids loved. DVD/VHS down there (the kids watched the original Parent Trap, one of the provided VHS tapes). Also down on this level is a small bedroom with a door.
I am so delighted that you enjoyed your visit. Indeed kids always do feel like that big downstairs family room is their own special place. Please come and stay again. patti
