About Pam Wolny

The owners also operate the very popular VRBO 356157 Hale Poipu in Kauai, and VRBO 726438 Pierpont Bay Beach House in Ventura, CA. We have been in the hotel/resort industry for over thirty years and managed award-winning bed and breakfasts.

Pam Wolny purchased this house in 1976

Why Pam Wolny chose Tahoe City

One of the best-priced 3-bedroom 2-bath homes in the area! This home is situated on a large private tree-covered lot adjacent to preserved Conservancy land with direct walking access to the Tahoe Rim Trail and the PCT. It also has access to the private beach park in the summer, and close to the ski resorts. Cozy decor and furnishings reflect unique Tahoe mountain setting. The home has everything that you need but is priced 20-30% lower than comparable homes.

What makes this house unique

Great Room - Open Floor Plan upstairs with vaulted ceilings to optimize interraction, family bonding, and enjoy treetop views. Great round glass fireplace warms the large cozy great room in minutes in the winter. Great rates and value!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay in your cabin and had the perfect fall weather. You certainly have thought of even the smallest detail. I don't think I've ever stayed in a rental that was so well-appointed.

I am already planning a fall stay next year, with my husband, when our youngest (hopefully) heads off to college.

Thanks, Lyn

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cabin in late summer, with our three small dogs. We enjoyed the hiking, the beaches including especially Sand Harbor, and the tram up to High Camp at Squaw Valley (we walked the 5 miles down as the trail was longer, diverted onto a road for a way). Thoroughly recommend this mountain and hike.

There is also a very convenient trail two minutes from the house to exercise dogs, which we used twice a day.

The house is great and we were very happy. The house itself is delightful and a good deal and the location is excellent.

Unfortunately one of our dogs chewed a blind (must have been the day we went for retail therapy in Reno). I did not notice this and was contacted immediately and efficiently by the owner on our return home. Her email covered all details of the damage and cost including photos of blind and receipt and I was only deducted $65 from the deposit, so all was well.

Tahoe is truly the best vacation spot with so much to do, and we will be back. It is a wonderful house.

Great Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The Bear Cub Cabin was perfect for our family vacation. Could easily accommodate 2 families of four. Great open living area upstairs. The mornings and afternoons on the deck are amazing. Great location to Meeks bay to the south and Tahoe City to the North, not to mention Sunnyside beach and market at the bottom of the hill.

The bedding was very comfortable. Perfectly stocked kitchen for cooking (nice sharp knives). The owners take extra effort to ensure your stay is perfect and they definitely take pride in their cabin. The rates are very Affordable.

Our family will definitely be venturing back to the Bear Cub Cabin for future vacations. Thanks for making our stay so great.

Amazing House!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 4 of us stayed here for Memorial Day Weekend with our two dogs and had the best time! The house is better in person than in the pictures, and we made full use of the Big Green Egg, grill, and hot tub. The neighborhood is nicely secluded and has incredible lake views from some of the streets, but is still close enough to the lake/town for other amenities. One of the owners, Pam, communicated everything to us ahead of time and was a pleasure to work with. We couldn't believe how great the house was at a reasonable price, and we are planning to come back again later this year!

Close to Great Hiking

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Tahoe and enjoyed this well-located home high above Sunnyside. Some of our favorite hikes are in Paige Meadows and this home is just a couple of blocks from the trail head. We like the open floor plan upstairs and swirling glass fireplace. Hot tub is small but cozy. Brand new gas grill on the deck was a nice surprise.

Bedrooms are nice downstairs and stay at a perfect temperature. Neighborhood is very nice and quiet; lots of mature trees.

Amazing place with amazing views

Nice Place

If you are looking for a large open comfortable cabin up in Tahoe, this is the place. We were able to bring our 3 kids plus our 4th child (our golden retriever) so we could all enjoy the snow together. We really appreciated the warm fireplace upstairs and had many warm cozy evenings playing games together on the big dining table. We have never seen a glass round fireplace like this before, but let me tell you it warms the house right up fast and is fun to watch as well. The kitchen is nice too and had everything we needed, but we went out to Tahoe City for dinner too, which is only 5 minutes or a little more away. So you are up in the mountains with pine trees, but city close for the restaurants and stores. They have a nice stereo and there was a cord to plug in my cell phone to listen to my playlists, and a huge TV, and sofas all around. This home is well decorated too with antique skiis and snowshoes hanging on the walls and some cool lamps. The beds and bedding were all very good. We liked the hot tub too. Thank you for providing such a nice place for our family to stay!

Great Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6 stay at the Bear Cub Cabin for our ski trip to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. We loved the layout of this vacation home with the great room upstairs. It has the kitchen, living room and dining room all upstairs with a large deck, and there is this great glass fireplace in the very center of the room. The owners provided the firewood for us and you could enjoy the warm fire and ambience from anywhere in the house upstairs. The decor is vintage Tahoe with candles and thoughtful touches throughout. There are many very comfortable seating options upstairs and the huge TV was great to watch movies at night. The kitchen was spotless, well-organized and had everything we needed. The hot tub was fresh and very rejuvenating. We enjoyed the hot tub every night either just as the sun was setting or later when we could stargaze in the clear night air. They even have bath robes for guest use in the bedroom closets. The beds were all very comfortable and the towels and linens were new and fresh. This home was VERY clean. We will be returning again to this nice cabin in the woods next time we come to Tahoe.
