Although it was considered early in the season, there was some snow and it's a great location to Alpine Meadows or Squaw Valley Resort.

The home is very spacious and it worked well with the 8 people that we had.

Definitely need to prepare to bring some of your own pans/pots depending on what you're planning to cook.
There is one room with the bunk beds that are awkwardly placed in what seems to be the closet.
All other rooms/bathrooms were very nice and would definitely consider coming back.

Would be nice, but not necessary:
- Bigger TV
- Rug where the fire place is
- Better description on clean up (i.e, fire place clean up, towels vs. sheets vs hand towels)

Home was great as far as layout and location but amenities were lacking. We did not have enough toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags for a 3 day stay. There was not a bar of soap in the house and they asked us to put a load of towels in upon our departure but there was no laundry soap.
Manager response on 2017-10-07 - Response from Tahoe Getaways
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. As outlined in several places, we provide just a starting supply of paper products and recommend picking up the items you need during your trip to the store. In the past, we have also recommend bringing your own personal toiletries. But, we've listened to guest feedback and will now be providing a toiletry bag and bar soaps at all homes.

Beautiful home! And very reasonable rate considering the size and location. Well equipped for a lovely vacation. A few minor details needing to be addressed (stiff screen door to balcony and lack of fans during heat wave.) But I'm sure the owners/Tahoe Getaways will take care of those details. Great service and response from Tahoe Getaways. Location is fantastic! Loved the swimming pond. All in all a fantastic experience. We will definitely try to book this home on our next visit!
Manager response on 2017-08-08 - Response from Tahoe Getaways
We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! We do supply a box fan for every room not already equipped with a ceiling fan, so if future renters have difficultly locating fans please don't hesitate to give us a call.

Terrific location near the wonderful pond at Bear Creek. Nice deck but limited deck furniture. Very clean overall except for couch which we needed to cover with sheet to use. TV did not function on weekend and until we contacted provided on Monday. Downstairs rooms stayed cool but upper floor with kitchen, dining, family room uncomfortably warm most of time. Would not recommend for SUMMER rental.

TV - there were no instructions re how to work it but luckily we got you on the phone and you walked us through it - would be helpful to provide written instructions.


Garage Door - when we arrived one of the garage doors didn't open and the handyman had to disassemble the motor and put a rope on the door for us to manually open and close which was kind of a hassle.


Door to the garage - the handle came off in my hand the first time I walked out to the garage


Fireplace - it would be helpful to provide more instructions regarding the fireplace being gas


Fridge - the right door feels like it's going to fall right off when you open it


Couch - it has rips in the fabric in a few places and feels really dirty

This is an easygoing home, and pet-friendly! We rented this house becasue we were visiting friend with a nearby house and we wanted a house that allowed dogs. The house has good light and is spacious, but not at all fancy. The furnishing is not quite like what is in the photo as there is only one couch one armchair in the living room.
Be aware though that ATT does not get cell reception and there is no land line. The internet is also quite slow so be prepared to get out and ski rather than get work done. Last caveat - the kitchen is not equipped for making meals for large families (pans are small).
Manager response on 2016-01-25 - Response from Tahoe Getaways
Thank you for the helpful review. This is one of our more affordable options is an excellent Alpine Meadows location. As disclosed in the listing, it is true that internet is slower than the standard in urban areas, and this home does not have a landline.

Overall we enjoyed our stay. We brought our dog and we could take him for nice walks around the neighborhood. The house is so conveniently located to Alpine that drive time was minimal. The house was clean except for some garbage in one of the bathrooms. The picture of the living room around the fireplace is misleading since it shows seating for eight but it has barely enough seating for five. Please update photo. Since the home is quite a ways from shopping it would've been nice to have firewood available upon arrival. Saran wrap, tinfoil and a sponge for cleaning dishes should be available. It would also be nice to have some emergency shampoo and body wash. This is the first rental home we've been to in over 25 years hat did not even provide the hair dryer.
The left garage door did not open so we could not pull our second car into the garage.
Manager response on 2016-01-08 - Response from Tahoe Getaways
I'm so sorry the garage door malfunctioned during your stay. This has been repaired, and is now working perfectly. Thank you for the feedback on the supplies. We do recommend all guests review the Check-In Packet while packing for your trip. Items provided (and recommended to pack) are outlined in detail.

This is a beautiful and spacious house in a tranquil setting. We stayed here with our two kids and both sets of grandparents and everyone had a great time. We enjoyed using the house's sleds in the backyard. A few suggested improvements: New slip covers for the sofa and chair, matching plates and silverware, coffee filters that actually fit the coffee machine. It's also a lot to ask for tenants to take their own trash to the dump, especially given the existing cleaning fee. But these are minor issues in the overall context of a great place.

This is a beautiful home with plenty of space and super easy access to Alpine and Squaw. We enjoyed our stay here, but it would have been so much nicer if one of the beds hadn't been too rickety for our teenaged son. Because of its instability, we put the mattress on the floor for him, so he didn't sleep in a bed during our stay. He, being a teenager, was of course less than impressed, but made do. Also, we found a used pull-up in a cabinet so that room didn't smell so nice! I'm sure this is the fault of the previous guest though and not the cleaning crew, but it was quite unpleasant nonetheless. DRAWBACKS: No landline and no cell reception; the bunk bed was too unstable for use; you have to drive trash and recycling offsite for pickup. POSITIVES: Plenty of space, full kitchen, awesome location, beautiful mountain view with babbling brook right outside the windows, pet friendly.

Floor plan great for several families with bathrooms attached to three out of four rooms. The room with bunks and futon good for kids. Great location for Alpine fans though we still drove to parking lot rather than walk about 1/4 mile. we found a couple of good spots for toddlers to play in snow as well. I'd recommend the property and/or stay there again. Property was clean and pretty well-maintained with exception of slip covers on the sofas. They really need new ones as current ones are threadbare. Kitchen cupboards could use some organization by cleaning crew. Driving directions to home were a little confusing; we used online navigation instead. Check out time is way too early and the cleaning crew was literally sitting in their car waiting for us to leave well before 10am. That wasn't a nice way to end a fun weekend.

The house itself was lovely. Plenty of room for two families. Large kitchen,plenty of bathrooms, and great water pressure. However, the mattresses were of very poor quality and perhaps were purchased at a close out sale only to be used for a short time. Very thin. There were several stained couch pillows that were unsightly and no one wanted to use them. The couch slipcover desperately needs to be replaced and would certainly help with the overall aesthetics of the great room. There were visible tears in it and looked shoddy. New mattresses and new slipcovers would make a big difference.

We had a wonderful time at the chalet. The spacious house allowed for a perfect stay for all members. The short distance to the ski resorts and town was prime reason for the stay.

The only things to watch out for is the wifi is spotty. Not necessarily the associations fault, but the area lacks dsl or cable internet connections. The burners on the oven did not light correctly. There were some matches that we were able to use to light them. Minor issues, but items worth noting.

large well laid out alpine meadows home. the house was really nice. the location was great. only small problems were the kitchen dishes and knives and pots/pans. they were pretty bad. no good pans or novels and all the plates were mismatched and chipped. no plastic kids stuff at all. and the cleaners didn't get under the sofas. it was kinda gross under there where of course outlets kids toys ended up. the rental agency was fine. it's nicer to deal with owners directly but they were responsive. just not flexible at all.. overall a nice house and we had a great time!

Very nice stay at Bear Creek Retreat

This is a really terrific house in a beautiful setting. Lots of room, especially liked the big room with the bunk beds and pull out sofa. The kids loved having their own space. Couple of suggestions: the bar stools are too high for the counter in the kitchen so not very useful; bigger flat screen TV would be nice; more seating in the living room. Also would suggest later check out than 10 a.m. which can be tough.
