Even Checking In Via Snowmobile Makes Bear Valley Vacation Rentals Special

Bear Valley, CA...A stay with Bear Valley Vacation Rentals means the comforts of home with a professional touch. We offer unique, individually owned condos and cabins with the additional amenities and benefits only our friendly and knowledgeable vacation rental staff can provide....

Bear Valley Vacation Rentals and its sister company, Bear Valley Real Estate, are locally owned and operated by Joel and Pamela Barnett. Wanting a change from their urban lifestyle and work in downtown San Francisco they came up with two options: move to either Hawaii or Bear Valley. A paradise in its own right, Bear Valley won out and they made their cabin home in 2002. That same year, they purchased the businesses and have been happily exploring (and helping their clients and guests explore) our pretty little nook of the Sierra Nevada. See below for their insider tips to enjoying the area. Hint: pancakes are key.
