Really loved the place! Booked on VRBO as one of the least expensive places and was I surprised. The accommodations were exquisite with lots of oak and brass. The staff was very knowledgeable in getting around and the best places to go. The shuttle service to the gondola was convenient and the drivers extremely helpful. I was especially surprised at...

This was a very clean and lovely place to stay. It was just the two of us and the lodge is really designed for families. It is a bit out of the way. If you are sensitive to altitude, it is too high for sleeping. Nice pool. The front desk staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to... More

Dear Bear Creek Lodge guest, Thank you for taking the time to review Bear Creek Lodge! Thank you for the positive review of the unit and the staff. Yes, we are off the beaten pass, but with the funicular and the shuttle it is only minutes away from the Village core. We hope to see you in the near future!... More

We booked through VRBO for our particular unit (412) and LOVED the unit, everything about that experience with Juli was fantastic. The Lodge itself is nice looking but all the promised "extras" like hot cookies, wine and cheese, etc were just not there. They did have coffee and hot chocolate. The gameroom is very small in the Lodge, and (not... More

Had fire alarm go off for two hours at 1:30am. No acknowledgement of it the next day. Wake up in the morning no hot water for a shower. Talk to front desk about our issues they say they are offering happy hour in the bar. What a joke. Would not stay here again

Just got back from a trip with 43 other ski club members. Location of the lodge was wonderful. We stayed in room 305 which was a three bedroom, 3 bath condo. Two of the three bedrooms were very nice. The one that was behind the kitchen was small and the bathroom for that was outside the bedroom. Furnishings were wonderful.... More

We stayed in room 302. First let me start of with the pros: Room was huge! We had a little nook as soon as you walk in the door to store stuff. The bedroom and bathroom were off to the right as you walked in. If you kept going, there was a dining room table that sat at least 6... More
