It is a two-story cabin and it sleeps 9 people, but it accommodates comfortably up to 12 people. (Additional cost of $10.00 per person may apply). This cabin is ideal for two families.

In the Wintertime, access to the Cabin is by foot, ski, or snowmobile through groomed public roads. The cabin is one of the closest to the community parking area Lot 'C', which provides with an easy access in the winter. The groomed roads, allow for the adventurous skiers, to ski down from Bear Valley Ski Resort all the way to the Cabin's front door. Bear Valley Ski Resort is just 3 miles up the road and during ski season, there is a free shuttle from town to the ski lifts you can walk to. Snowmobiles may be rented from Bear Valley Snowmobile shop and they also offer snowmobile taxi services, if needed.

The sleeping accommodations are as follows:

Bedroom #1: great for the kids; it has a bunk Bed (Twin over Full Size Beds) and a pull out full mattress under bunkbeds and sleeps up to 5.

Bedroom #2: has a queen bed and a bunk-bed (Twin over Twin) sleeps up to 4.

Bedroom #3 (Master Bedroom): has a comfortable queen bed.

In addition, there is a fold out full size futon bed downstairs that is great for kids and one single fold out bed in the family room upstairs.

In the Summertime, our Cabin features a beautiful seasonal creek running in the back and a private rock fire-pit in front, perfect for roasting marshmallows. You can relax in our hammock and use our tandem kayak at Bear Lake included with your stay. There is plenty off street parking at the cabin. The cabin is located within less than one mile to the private Bear Lake and 4 miles to Alpine Lake.

Guests comments:

'The cabin was in great shape, obviously cared well for by your family, and we tried to leave it that way. We had a fun time! The kids especially enjoyed the toys and the movies. We did make a nice sledding run in the back yard woods, which we hope can be enjoyed by others, as well.' B & E from Oakland, CA.

'We had a wonderful time thank you - ...I hadn't appreciated how open plan the lay out was from the photos. That said, we loved the cabin and the location so hopefully there will be another chance for us to come back. ' M, from Palo Alto, CA.

About Katia M. Hinrichsen

We are a family of four with two little girls.We love skiing, snowmobiling, sledding, cross country skiing, hiking, fishing, kayaking and all that Bear Valley offers! :)

Katia M. Hinrichsen purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Katia M. Hinrichsen chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We love our cabin for its close proximity to downtown, making an easy winter access for our family. Summer time, we fell in love with the seasonal creek that runs behind our cabin. Great to be able to ski from the Mountain to your front door. In the summertime we enjoy our outside hammock, our rock fire pit and listen to the creek.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin is one of the closest to the village, providing easy winter access in the wintertime. We made this cabin kids friendly as we have two kids. (We have xbox 360, several PG DVDs, toys, games, kids little table, portable highchair & crib). We make sure that the cabin is always well maintained, well furnished and fully stocked with all amenities of your own home. We also provide a tandem kayak for your leisure in the summertime.

A Perfect Bear Valley Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our three-generation family of six, plus two dogs, spent a delightful long weekend at Kátia's cabin. This was our first trip to Bear Valley. Kátia is by far the most-responsive and helpful owner we've dealt with on VRBO. The cabin easily accommodated the six of us, was relatively-easy to get to, was well appointed and maintained, with multiple TVs, WiFi, Xbox, both gas-fired and wood-burning fireplaces, etc., and had plenty of kitchenware for way more than we six. The amount of snow for mid-April was fantastic and skiing at Bear Valley was great for all of us. I highly recommend Kátia's cabin and Bear Valley.

What a Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to say Thank You to Katia for making our stay truly enjoyable . . . The cabin is very comfortable, in a great location (especially during the winter) and well taken care of. She was also very accommodating and helpful as well which just made it such a great experience. We could not believe the amount of snow we had during our little family vacation . . .went skiing at Bear and just playing in the snow at the cabin was great! I think next time we will even end up renting a snow mobile to go exploring the village even more :-)

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and we found everything to be as advertised! The one thing that was beyond our expectations was the outdoor area and the fire pit. It is huge and we spent every evening around the campfire. The kids loved it. The beds are comfortable and the cabin is well stocked with kids toys, games and videos but who has time to watch them when the area is so beautiful. Great location near the village and only a few minutes drive to Alpine Lake. The owner is super helpful and quick to respond. We would definitely recommend this cabin in Bear Valley!

Wonderful Summer Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at the cabin this past week! We comfortably slept 9 (6 adults and 3 kids), the cabin was very clean and well supplied, and I can't say enough about how great the owner was in communicating with us and making sure our trip would be a great one. Days spent on the lake, out on the kayak, and climbing rocks were followed by wonderful evenings around the campfire. Nice quiet and private cabin. Great location. Couldn't have asked for more! Also perfect for families with little kids! Katia had everything we needed to make sure our little ones had a blast.
