About Todd Thompson
I built this wonderful house myself and it was a labor of love! No expense was spared in the construction and decoration of the Bear Lake Lodge. Everything is first rate from the beautiful Cathedral ceilings in the Great Room to the amazing solid stone floors throughout. The heated floors in the master bathroom are just right in a Tahoe home. All the beds are California Kings and have 600 thread count sheets and custom comforters in each room.
Todd Thompson purchased this House in 2008

A Family Christmas to Remember!
At the last minute we decided to go off the grid and take the family to the Mountains for Christmas. A stroke of luck (as a result of a last minute cancellation) made Bear Lake Lodge available for rent.
The owner, Todd happened to be in the area and met us at the home at check-in to show us around. He even had a Christmas tree set up with a bag of decorations for us. We also appreciated Todd checking in by text during our stay to make sure all was well.
The home is roomy and immaculate with a whole house sound system with different zones that our teenagers loved! Game Room worked out well for family fun. Beds were awesome! We plan on contacting Todd to get the brand of mattress in the upstairs master because it is much more comfortable then ours at home. The sleds in the garage were a nice touch for the family as well.
We would highly recommend this property and look forward to our next stay at Bear Lake Lodge!
Made our holiday perfect
Beautiful house. The architect took full advantage of this hillside property With lots of decks, a small yard, and outside Jacuzzi.Everything inside is updated and stunning. Plenty of room for our family, and space where we weren’t on top of each other.We would definitely rent this for another one of our thanksgivings.
Wonderful stay at an awesome property!
Our family recently had the pleasure of staying a week at this beautiful property. In a word, it was "awesome." The property looks like others in Architectural Digest (really). Todd (the owner) thought of everything when it comes to comfort (in-home sound system, large screen TV, foosball, ping pong and air hockey tables, hot tub) and convenience (pots, pans, and more).
If you are looking for a large property that will accommodate a big family or group, this is the spot.
Great Family Stay at Bear Lake Lodge - Tahoe
We gathered our three generations of family at Todd's wonderful and spacious home and had a great stay. The location near Carnelian Bay, in between Tahoe Vista and Tahoe City was fabulous for exploring trails, beaches, attractions and FUN in North Tahoe, with easy access south to Emerald Bay and more.
The house is comfortable and nicely furnished. The owners have thought of every little thing to guarantee a relaxing stay. We had four couples and seven kids of various ages there in the home. Each person had a comfy place to sleep (the sheets are soft!), quick access to a tub or shower, plus plenty of room to gather together in the great room on the main floor. We explored beaches and took almost daily hikes. To our delight, we found some beach supplies in the garage.
Todd generously allowed our little grand dog to come with us (she was leashed when not held and crated at night). We fixed most of our meals in the nicely furnished kitchen, enjoyed music on the wonderful sound system, played games and worked puzzles. The TVs were there when needed to watch a favorite baseball game and tennis, but mostly we enjoyed one another's company.
We were grateful to have room in the garage and driveway for our four cars, keeping off the street. The peekaboo views of the lake were nice. Quick access to gorgeous Lake Tahoe was only minutes away - and getting to grocery stores and ice cream took only a few more minutes.
Thanks, Todd for a memorable family reunion in your home!
Exceptional quality and very hospitable owner!
We rented Big Bear Lodge a few weeks ago with two other families. It lived up to all expectations, and Todd was truly a pleasure to work with. The home is just as represented on VRBO, very luxurious and well-appointed. We loved the decor! The great room with the giant couch, fireplace and huge tv was the best. Super comfortable and enough room for all of us to hang out. We ate and played games at the big dining table. Kitchen was terrific, stocked with enough of everything for a large group. Four bedrooms have king beds, and two of those are master suites with their own bathrooms. Bedding was very nice and beds very comfortable. The other room is the bunk room, which the kids loved. This configuration worked out very well for our combination of kids and adults. We had a lot of fun in the game room with foosball and ping pong, and a massage chair that was WONDERFUL after a long day of skiing. There was SO much snow we almost got snowed in for another night, when they shut down highway 80. Todd was nice enough to let us hang out at the house for several hours after normal checkout time to see if the highway opened (he did not have another renter arriving that day or the following, so the cleaning could be postponed.) We did make a mistake and put some trash into a neighbor's trash bin (ours was buried in the snow), which upset the neighbor, but Todd was very diplomatic and we were able to smooth it over with an apology and a Starbuck's gift card. Be warned that the driveway and the street that the house is on are very steep. You must have 4WD as Todd recommends, at least when there is as much snow as we've had this season (2016-2017). We loved the area (near Carnelian Bay) and it was a short drive to the ski resorts. I would definitely rent this house again, and we are already looking at the spring and summer calendar!
Wonderful house with great amenities and play room with foozeball/table tennis/pool table!
Property features two sky chairs out by the hot tub and a great fenced grass area. We also rent out baby and toddler gear at very low prices!
