|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Our home is very comfortable, attractively furnished, more than fully equipped and accommodating for groups of family and friends. All of our guests love it and often say 'the pictures do not do it justice'.
The main floor has cathedral ceilings, large living room, dining room and kitchen with center island. Both the living room fireplace and the dining room stove are wood burning.
Dining room table seats 12 and there is additional seating for 11 at the kitchen center island and at the table in the breakfast nook. I also have an extra table and folding chairs.
There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor, both with queen beds and there is 1 bath upstairs. Downstairs are 2 baths, 1 king, 1 queen and a bunk room with 2 single bed over double bed bunks. I also have a couple of rollaway beds, queen aeromattress and pack’n play, high chair seat, baby monitor, stair gates for little ones. Full Laundry is on the lower floor as well.
The house is fully equipped with linens, kitchen staples, paper products, bath products/hair dryers. TV/VCR/DVD combo in the living room, another TV/DVD in the upstairs bedroom and a TV/VCR/DVD in the bunk room. Stereo, books, games, DVDs/tapes.....
Firewood and snow removal are provided in winter. We plow a circle about in front in the winter so there is enough parking for about 6 cars on flat ground along with garage space.
There are 2 furnished decks - large one out in the fenced back yard (with tree house) and a small one in front. There is a Weber gas barbecue.
We are just outside of Tahoe City off of 89. Its 10 minutes to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows ski areas. Homewood (small jewel of an area) is practically next door. There is a a sledding hill at Granlibakken which is 5 minutes from here. Granlibakken also has a small, learning ski hill.
The bike trails are 1 block from the house and tennis courts, park and playground just down the road. Many great beaches are found, one in Tahoe City and several south of us.
Tahoe City is a great lakeside town with lots of restaurants, shops, grocery stores, etc. Truckee is about 15 minutes from here - South Shore Casinos and Reno are about a 45 minute drive. Stateline Casinos are about a 30 minute drive.
PLEASE INCLUDE THE NAME Hungry Bear OR Tahoe City IN YOUR INQUIRIES. Thanks.

Irene Fuller purchased this house in 2000
Love Lake Tahoe both summer and winter and the west shore is perfect location for both.
Great big, open living area and large deck in fenced back yard
Your home was perfect for our families. Plenty of space to hang together and we (the adults) loved having our own rooms. The bunkroom was perfect for the all the kids. We are looking forward to coming again next year!
We had a large group of people (and 3 dogs!) get together for a family retreat over the 4th of July holiday, and the Hungry Bear Lodge was even better than we all could have hoped for! From the beginning, the homeowner was amazing to work with, very quick with every response and always provided helpful information (we also received our deposit back in less than a week - great!). The home itself is perfect, and most of the previous comments have already mentioned the highlights: great location, well equipped, two lovely deck spaces and an awesome yard. There was no grass in the yard (hard to come by grassy yards in Tahoe I think) but the dogs didn’t seem to mind at all - it was great just to have all the space. The home had a welcoming cabin feel, but it also felt a lot larger than I would have guessed. There was plenty of living space to gather together but at the same time it was nice to be able to go off into various areas of the home when we all needed our own space to relax after a long day! I was a bit nervous to hear that dogs were only allowed on one floor of the house (this rule is in consideration for travelers with allergies, and I definitely can respect that) but it turns out that dogs are allowed on the main floor with the living space and there was tons of room for them anyway - and I have a really large dog! I was also a bit intimidated when I heard about the bear gate, but it is super easy to use and it was obviously nice to feel safe (although we didn’t end up spotting any bears anyway!). The only “issue” we had - if you can call it that - was we had trouble working the washing machine, but with a quick email to the homeowner (she responded almost immediately) our problem was very easily solved! Everyone in my family couldn’t stop commenting on how perfect this trip worked out, and it’s mainly thanks to the Hungry Bear Lodge. I have never used the HomeAway service before, but after such a great experience with the Hungry Bear Lodge I am inspired to use it again. And I certainly would recommend staying here, we are all so happy we did!
A group of 18 of us decided to get together for a ski trip this winter and found this wonderful place to stay that's merely ~20 minutes away from Squaw Valley! The itinerary was worked out pretty last minute due to the large number of people involved, and we couldn't be happier to find Hungry Bear Lodge that is so well-equipped and relieves us from last-minute planning stress! Not only was Irene super responsive and accommodating throughout our communication but also did she provide us with a very detailed handbook on everything we needed to know about the house. The only slight issue we had throughout our stay was we couldn't contact the snow plow person to help us clear the snow outside of the house for our cars and had to do some shuffling, but we still managed to make it work. There is also a slight uphill coming in from Tahoe City and a couple of our small cars were having trouble making it back to the house after dinner, but it was fine after we put the chains back on and that might be something to be aware of. We received our security deposit back about 2 weeks after our vacation; while we had expected to receive it back a little sooner, it was not unreasonably long and we were overall very pleased with our experience at the Hungry Bear Lodge!
Recently my daughter got married and I arranged to rent the "Hungry Bear Lodge" for the occasion and what a great decision that was. It is exactly as advertised! Comfortable, spacious and convienent. It will always be a part of the special memories I have of my girls special day! Having so many family members together to share in the celebration was great. You will not be desappointed!
We had the challenge of finding Tahoe lodging for multiple families, and the Hungry Bear Lodge provided the ideal solution. There are several gathering places throughout the house and, best of all, a dining table large enough to fit the whole group. The juxtaposition of new appliances with classic architecture and design made the lodging both homey and functional. Shopping, skiing, recreation, etc. are just minutes away. We would definitely come here again.
The Hungry Bear Lodge was the perfect vacation cabin with room to spare for 15 friends on a ski retreat. Convenient to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, it had good size common areas for games and meals, as well as comfortable rooms for sleeping. Highly recommended for a fun weekend year round.
Well located, just south of Downtown Tahoe City, easy and quick in/out access. Close to grocery, restaurants, bike trail, lake, beaches, ski resorts
