About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Hello from Beautiful Lake Tahoe!

The owners created the "Bears Den" at Lake Tahoe with family's looking to explore and play in Tahoe in mind.. A complete makeover allowed the owners to add a total "Tahoe Package" to this gorgeous home. With vaulted pine ceilings, cozy river rock wood burning fireplace, surround sound Satellite TV with DVD/VCR, very private deck with a Hot Springs Hot Spa, 6 Ft. pool table/air hockey game and all log and pine furniture throughout this is exactly the Tahoe get-a-way you have been dreaming of!

Located in an upscale and secluded area of South Lake Tahoe this home is minutes to Sierra @Tahoe, Heavenly and Kirkwood. Fallen Leaf Lake and Echo Lake are just minutes away as well and all the glitter of the heart of South Shore's famous casinos are 13 minutes away!

Take a stroll down the street and hike into the Lake Tahoe back-country and Desolation Wilderness. If you love to ski, snowshoe, cross country ski, sled, mountain bike, hike or just goof off this is your next vacation destination. By the way, we provide all linens including flannel sheets, cozy down comforters. It truly is all right here at "The Bears Den".

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your wonderful cabin! This was the perfect getaway for my birthday. The kids had a blast in the snow and we really enjoyed the hot tub. We will absolutely be back.

Reviewer Comments:

My party, which included three toddlers and their parents, had a WONDERFUL time at The Bear's Den. The house is well-sized and perfectly appointment. We loved the hot tub, and the house is perfectly situated (far enough from South Lake to avoid the crowds, close to the ski resorts and hiking). We also had fantastic interactions with the management team (Beverly and Michelle). We look forward to returning soon!

Reviewer Comments:

Internet – could never connect - I called Pinnacle and was told the whole Tahoe basin was out – so in hindsight not much to do here (but was a frustrating process). Landline - I tried ordering pizza and the cell phone service doesn't really work here and thought I'd use the landline upon arrival - nope, it was unplugged. Firewood - who doesn't like a fire but I guess I missed the fine print on the contract regarding to having to supply my own....same with laundry detergent....I understand the cost of these items but using them with normal consumption patterns should be baked in (at least this has been my experience)...we had to make an unnecessary trip into town for detergent (on our vacation) Hot tub - given the above I skeptical that it was even on and warm - I was wrong as it read 103 degrees - however the back half of the cover couldn't be lifted as the damage to it has it so water logged/iced inside that it was too heavy to lift - I originally thought the weight was from the snow but after removing it that was not the case. I will also point out the front hot tub panels and surrounding fence were already damaged before we arrived. Main room TV - the instructions say to use the Panasonic tv remote but there is not one – could never get it working Toilet - the toilet connected to the master and bedroom with the tv has the toilet running - I lifted the lid thinking a chain link might have been kinked - but no. Also no hot water in this bathrooms sink. A few odds and ends – in the kitchen multiple knobs come off when opening drawers, the toaster handle is missing, there was only one roll of paper towels (so we also bought our own). I very rarely complain and have been renting vrbo for 10-15 years in CO and CA - this place is clean and tidy but wow - it needs to be figured out – I don’t know what the owners experience has been with renters but you can easily tell that this was bare bones for house in terms of supplies. I would not rent th

Owner's Response: I am so sorry for the problems you experienced. Firewood is not traditionally supplied and wood that was left at the cabin was buried in snow. It was a long winter (which is no excuse for missing items) and since your stay we have hired more cleaners and new hot tub technicians.

Thank you so much for this beautiful experience at The Bear's Den it was our son's birthday and we had a great time we are glad that we found this nice and cozy place to expend a weekend with our family. I'm sorry our review is late but the holidays and work make our days so busy we love this place and we would hope to come back. We came at the perfect time when there was snow every where and the kids could make a big slide to play. I recommend this property for future vacations The Bears's Den Cabin is a place that it has everything you need the kitchen is equip the rooms are cozy there's a nice Jacuzzi the living room is big and it has a pool table. Thank you again for this beautiful time.

Comfortable, Cozy, Updated Cabin, Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 and dog had a wonderful stay at this cabin during ski week. The house was stocked with all the amenities a family needs, was beautifully clean, and had simple, tasteful cabin decor. The location was excellent-away from main road with woods for back yard, close to hiking trails down the road. My kids loved the pool table and hot tub and they played for hours while my husband and I relaxed. Would like to come again. Thanks for sharing Bear's Den! The Blanchards

We could not have asked for a better place to spend our New Year's week. Dana and Michelle you are awesome! Thank you for going the extra mile to make sure we had our best trip yet. A clean, comfortable house with a hot tub, wireless internet, a beautiful provate setting and a snow blown driveway and patio all in walking distance of incredible snowshoeing, cross country skiing and sledding. The house has all the essentials for for a comfortable stay (big fluffy towels, down comforters, soft flannel sheets) and the kitchen is even fully equipped enough to handle the preparation and serving of a four course New Year's Eve dinner for six. Thanks again for everything...we will definitely be back!
