WEST SHORE LAKE TAHOE CA CHARMING,COZY CABIN. ROMANTIC/FAMILY-FRIENDLY, HOT TUB

Tahoe City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom + Loft + 1 Bathrooom

Three Bears Cabin is a quintessential storybook Tahoe cabin designed and built by famed Tahoe architect Burt Anderson (it is rumored that he even lived in this house at one point).

This cozy cabin is perfect for 1-2 couples or a family of up to 6 for your summer or winter vacation on the West Shore of Lake Tahoe. It is located in the quiet neighborhood of Pineland, on a well-maintained road that is mostly travelled by residents only (no through traffic). You'll feel comfortable having the kids and dog playing in the yard area around the house, knowing the car traffic is at a minimum here.

You'll enjoy a fully-equipped cabin with plenty of off- street parking, a large wrap-around deck with outdoor dining and BBQ area, and a 6 person hot tub. Inside, an alarm system, mud room with ski racks and boot & glove dryers, full size washer and dryer, mountain decor and architecture, 39' flat screen TV with High-Def cable, TiVo DVR, Blueray DVD player and Apple TV are all available to make your stay feel like home. There is a second TV+DVD player in the loft, making it the perfect spot for the kids to settle in and watch a movie before bed. Secure 50MB wireless internet access is available for all your electronic devices. Central heating will keep you warm and cozy, and a freestanding gas stove in the living room adds extra warmth and ambiance. A recliner sofa in living room is ideal for settling in and watch the game or a movie. A fully-equipped kitchen, bathroom, and all bedding is provided to make your stay simple and relaxing.

The house is located directly across the street from Ward Creek, and the lake itself is located less than 1 mile away. Popular activities include fishing, boating, swimming, paddle boarding, kite boarding, kayaking, canoeing, sun bathing on the beach, etc.

Take a leisurely stroll to three great restaurants: Sunnyside Resort, Firesign, and Spoon. A ski/snowboard rental shop (West Shore Sports), and a mini-mart/deli/liquor store (Sunnyside Market) are all less than 1 mile away from the cabin.

A half-mile walk will take you to Kilner Park, where you can find beach volleyball, lighted tennis courts, swings, sandbox, jungle gym, and the biggest spiral slide in Tahoe! And just across Highway 89, you'll find the beach!

In winter, a shuttle bus conveniently stops directly in front of the house every 30 minutes for pick-up and drop-off at Alpine Meadows' Sherwood lift, which is only 2 miles/5 minute drive up the road. Imagine the convenience of not having to get in the car to get to your ski lift! Cross country skiing, back country skiing, and snowmobiling is accessible right out of the back door. Family-friendly Homewood Ski Resort is only 3.5 miles away and world renowned Squaw Valley is just 20 minutes away.

In summer, the Tahoe Rim Trailhead is conveniently located 1/2 mile away for your mountain biking and hiking enthusiasts. Less than 1 mile away, 15 miles of paved bike path makes for great family fun with commanding lake views. The bike path is also used for roller-blades, jogging, walking or access to the Truckee river for fishing and rafting. For those looking for more of a challenge, try biking up to either Alpine Meadows or Squaw Valley ski resorts from the bike path along Hwy 89.

Tahoe City is a short 3 miles drive where you will find all the amenities expected in a small mountain town: lake-side fine dining, shopping, coffee shops, bars, grocery & drug stores, ethnic food restaurants, movie theater, yoga studios & day spas, fitness clubs, banks, golf courses, bike/ski/snowboard rentals, river rafting, fly fishing, boat rentals, etc.

For additional nightlife options, gambling casinos and live concerts can be found in Crystal Bay, located at the California-Nevada boarder, 10 miles (20 minutes drive) north of Tahoe City.

Most comfortable bed ever

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 20, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
I had a great time here! The bed is the so comfy. Everything worked well. The kitchen is teeny, but just fine. The neighborhood was really quiet when I was there. Even though there are close neighbors, there was no noise at all. There's a trail to walk dogs that leaves right from the house. There was no snow :-( when I was there so I didn't figure out the ski shuttle. This cabin would be superb in the summer, too, though. It has a huge deck under the pine trees. Very sweet place. And the owners are super nice and helpful about absolutely everything. I am going back next year - and this time I know there will be snow!!!

Notes:
Tahoe City is only five miles to the Squaw Valley turn-off, which is home to the 1960 Winter Olympics. Tahoe City also has public beaches, a marina, and a downtown area that is charming and filled with local shops, restaurants, and other commercial services. Tahoe City has many local events and many look forward to the seasonal Farmers’ Market, Free Beach Movies, and Sunday afternoon live music concerts on the beach. In the winter, many consider the SnowFest week of activities one of the best events of the entire year in the Tahoe City area. Tahoe City’s close proximity to Lake Tahoe recreational activities such as boating, hiking, biking (dirt and paved trails), tennis, golf, skiing, shopping, and restaurants makes this a great area for those that enjoy being outdoors, and getting away from it all. Tahoe City is a wonderful place to enjoy the Tahoe lifestyle!
