About Jacob Thompson

Have found adventure throughout my life - hopped freight trains across the country, lived in a treehouse 100 ft up in the redwoods during college, and pedaled a bicycle from Alaska to Argentina from 2006-2010. I currently work as a brand director for a company that makes high powered bike and scuba dive lights, but am dreaming of the next adventure.

Cabin in the woods!

  • 5 of 5
This place was just the right fit for my friends and I. From the moment we got there to the moment we left, we were entertained. Myself and seven of my friends stayed at the Log Cabin a few weeks ago and I can't say enough great things. The cabin is walking distance to two different beaches, Safeway, Rite Aid, and a quick drive down to the Casinos. The cabin was cozy but spacious. The back deck was great, we played darts for hours and then BBQ'd at night. We also took advantage of the hot tub which was cleaned and ready for us to use when we got there. There were more than enough cooking utensils so we cooked in two nights. They also have a foosball table which kept us entertained while we were not sitting by the Lake. I would recommend this place to a larger group of people. Overall, awesome experience and we hope to come back again next summer!

My husband and I own our own business so we don't get away often. Luckily I sent Jacob was an awesome, accommodating owner and quick to respond to messages because we were able to schedule a last minute get away. This place was much larger than I expected and a perfect location. The lake, shopping, dining, and bike trails are very close and convenient. The cabin is well equipped with everything including games and puzzles. We will be renting there again for sure!

Everything we had hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been coming up to Tahoe since 1995, when my wife and I were married at Caesar's. Since 2005, we've flopped back and forth between shores as we often would come up in the winter as well. With that, we've made North Shore our sole summer vacation spot for the better part of the last 10 years.

This particular trip had a special meaning for us as my father passed in Jan. of 2013, and it's been an extremely difficult road for my family and myself since then. With that, my oldest daughter and I had discussed bringing his ashes to spread them in the lake. We wanted to do this so that we could feel that he will always be there with us, and now he will be. It was a special moment for us as a family when we spread some of his ashes and said our "goodbyes."

The reason that I chose this home for his intimacy and proximity to the lake, and the price was completely within our budget. As described, it's not a luxury cabin, but has the accommodations that we needed, as we have small dogs. As far as entertainment purposes go, due to the drastic drought conditions, the Truckee River Rafting Company was closed for the season, so we spent Sunday through Tuesday at the lake, which is 3-4 blocks from the cabin. This is essential as the kids were able to jet-ski and parasail and just chill out on the lake with our big raft. This served as a much needed relaxation and time with each other, that I'm already longing for again.

If you're looking for an intimate and affordable stay in Kings Beach, then contact the owner Jacob. He's a REAL down to Earth guy that seems to share the same affinity for North Shore as we do. We've already reserved a week for next summer and my wife and I will definitely make it back up for a weekend trip in the winter if time permits.

The Most Adorable Cabin ~ !!! Affordable vacation retreat.

  • 5 of 5
I was lucky enough to get to stay at the house through Independence Day and was amazed at what a great spot the cabin is at - the beaches near there are the best on the lake and everything is so close - Safeway, restaurants/bars, coffee shops, Northstar, etc.
The cabin was super clean and the Hot Tub was out of this world, the speakers don't work on it, but there is a portable Bluetooth speaker system that we brought out as we were soaking. The sauna was pretty cool, but the wide open decks were one of the highlights, drinking coffee on the front porch out as we basqued in the sun and barbequed on the back deck. Nice kitchen, which was stocked as well as my own Grandma, with new pots/pans and a nice gas stove.
The owner was super receptive and helpful through the reservation process. I would absolutely recommend this house - I've stayed at countless houses around Lake Tahoe and even some that cost way more weren't nearly as good as this one.

Vacation at Enchanted Bear Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5
I stayed for five nights with my son, his wife and my 2 very busy granddaughters (ages 4 & 7). We had an action packed week and enjoyed the comfort of a cabin to relax in after our busy days. We enjoyed Hiking to Viking House in Emerald Bay, kayaking and para- sailing at Kings Beach, gondola ride and hikes at Northstar Ski resort where the girls also roller skated and panned for gems.
We took full advantage of the kitchen , dart board, hot tub and the gas BBQ . We collapsed into our beds each evening after a very adventuresome day. All in all in it was a fantastic week at Lake Tahoe staying at the Enchanted Bear log cabin.

Cozy cabin close to beach!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed at this cabin for a girl's trip and we had an amazing time. First, and most important, it is a really close walk to King's beach. It takes minutes to walk to the sandiest beach and most beautiful water! The cabin was stocked with beach towels and mats. On the way to the beach you'll walk past some really cute shops and restaurants.

It's great to be able to soak in the hot tub or relax in the sauna once the sun goes down and the temperature drops a bit. We enjoyed having a fully stocked kitchen for cooking meals, there was even a crock pot! All the appliances were very clean. Also, the grocery store was very close. We were able to relax and watch a movie using the Apple TV one night. The cabin has a large front and back porch for relaxing and taking in the scenery.

Overall, Tahoe is just a beautiful place and I would highly recommend this cabin as it was convenient, clean and cozy!

Perfect location for enjoying everything Tahoe has to offer. Beachside recreation areas are a few blocks away for a day of swimming, sunbathing, volleyball, paddle boarding, boating, in the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe. Northstar is less than ten minutes away for world class skiing/snowboarding. An expansive forested area is just two blocks away with serene trails winding through the massive pine trees and up to epic views of the lake - also great for mountain biking, snowshoeing, dirt bikes, and snowmobiling. Restaurants, grocery store, and shopping is a short walk through the neighborhood. Northshore casinos are 5 minutes away with tons of entertainment scheduled. Everything you’d want to do in Tahoe is less than ten minutes away.
