“Nice cabin, dishonest about cleaning deposit”
Reviewed 11 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

people found this review helpful

We found this cabin on Trip Advisor but arrangements were made between me and the owner, Gary directly. Nice enough cabin (though we have stayed in Bear Valley numerous times and found ALOT nicer cabins to stay at and in a better location than this one) but was surprised and quite disappointed after most of our cleaning deposit of $250 was kept. We left the cabin in excellent shape but the expectations were for us to wash the sheets and make the beds before we checked out?? Really? Would we stay at this cabin again...NO. Also WiFi was advertised but what they fail to tell you is that it is from a neighbor's house and the connection was slight to none. Sorry this stay now has left a very bad taste for staying in Bear Valley...quite unfortunate.

This renter is the only non-5 star review we have ever gotten! They clearly did not read (or wanted to ignore)both the Booking Conformation & Rental Agreement and the Cabin Instructions that they were provided prior to rental. Those documents clearly state that we do not charge a cleaning fee like the majority of cabin owners in Bear Valley so if you choose not to clean the cabin yourselves and save money, we will use part of your Security/Cleaning Deposit to pay someone to clean. Most of our renters want to clean themselves and save money. It was not that they just did not make the beds; they did very little if anything! There were dirty dishes in the dishwasher, all of the trash and recycling that they left was to have been taken with them or deposited in the BV disposal station, none of the drapes were closed, many lights left on, and worst of all, one of the mattress pad heaters was left on-very dangerous! We ask our renters to please check off everything on the closing list. They clearly did not read the instructions or chose to ignore them. We did give them back the remainder of their Security/Cleaning Deposit minus what we had to pay the cleaners. If they choose to ignore the rules of our rental we do not want them back anyway. This is a cabin rental, not a motel room that you can just walk away from. Gary & Jeri

Thank you for your review. There is also inexpensive snow shuttle service available when the roads are groomed. And remember,, you can drive in and park in the paved driveway when the snow is gone.

Thank you Pierina for your positive comments. We love it when young families enjoy our little part of paradice as much as our extended family does. We are starting to get summer bookings. Let me know if you are interested in any particular dates this summer.

“This is a great cabin and great location”
Reviewed 2 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

This trip to the snow was a birthday present for me. This holiday rental is simply fantastic. It is a log house, four bedrooms, two baths, sleeps ten. All the modern conveniences, but with a rustic charm. It is equipped with every possible necessity. Wood stove in the living room and one bedroom, electric heaters in bedrooms and bathrooms. A five minute walk on a groomed roadway from parking lot and nearby restaurant, grill and cafe at the lodge. Note that you are responsible for cleaning and laundry. I am more accustomed to B&Bs and was surprised at this, but I take it that this is customary for holiday rentals. Highly recommended.

Thank you much for the positive review. We try to keep our rental costs down by giving our guests the option of cleaning for themselves or having our cleaners do it and take it out of the deposit. Hope to see you again some day.
