About The Owner

Hilary Pender Entrepreneur Real Estate Professional Greater Chicago Area

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose South Lake Tahoe

I rented myself for 10 days and fell in love with the picturesque atmosphere and the South Lake Tahoe area. So I bought the cabin! It was perfect for my family and me to enjoy all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer. We love to ski and have two dogs, and wanted a dog friendly atmosphere. So what more could you ask for! The location is perfect to offer privacy but close enough to all the action. We can get to Heavenly in 10 minutes.

What makes this cabin unique

Just installed a wonderful, new Bisque Franklin-stove gas fireplace for lounging in front of with a good book or movie.

Dog beach four miles away! Great for getting out that canine energy! Lots of hiking trails too! Aross the street from the forest preserve.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Hilary 😊

We have checked out and are headed home. Just wanted to touch base with you. We had a great time! It was so cozy and comfortable. And loved reading your little guest book. Thank you so much! 😊

We would love to come back in the near future and bring my son.

And all in all we had a wonderful time!

Thanks again 😊

Dear Hilary,

We had a wonderful time! My fiancé and I have talked about a cabin in the snow for years and yours is perfect! We're just getting into the groove of cabin life and now we're sad we have to leave but... we will definitely be back to South Lake Tahoe and the Cubby Bear Cabin! Kenny & Lyn

6year old loved the Loft!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Hilary,

Thanks so much for letting us “borrow" your home last weekend! What a cute little place. It was snowing and beautiful. A very peaceful, quiet setting even though it is so close to town. Just as described. We went for my husband’s birthday and it fit our family of 5 comfortably. My 6 year old thought the loft was the greatest thing! He is still talking about the cabin. Between the snow playing and that loft, what a great memory we made for him.

I gave my husband your email as he wanted to send you a personal thank you note himself. :)

Thanks so much! We are looking forward to our next trip to the cubby bear cabin!

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin! We visit Lake Tahoe often and wanted to try staying in a cabin for the first time. Many cabins are either old and impersonal, or too big for a small group (our group consisted of 2 people and a dog). The cabin has 2 levels; the top level has a low ceiling and would be ideal for 2-4 small children. The L-shaped sofa is very comfortable. We really loved the Franklin fireplace and the cozy ambience. Most importantly, it was very clean on our arrival. The small living room, kitchen, and dining area are interconnected so you feel like you are always with each other, which feels very cozy. The location is very close to Raley supermarket, Starbucks, Sprout Cafe, and other attractions of South Lake Tahoe. If people enjoy cooking gourmet meals, they should plan on bringing their own spices and condiments. Luckily it's very easy to run to the grocery store if you need anything late at night. The cabin was comfortable even when it was frigid outside. There was no snow when we came but we still enjoyed our getaway. It is off the main highway so it's very quiet at night. The shower was awesome! The hot water was constant and pressure was excellent. Hilary was very responsive to all of our questions during the booking process and after we checked out of the cabin. Thank you for letting us stay at the cabin- we highly recommend it to anyone and will be back!

Perfect Location of South Lake Tahoe CA Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the cabin and the area it is located. Central to many activities -- hiking, beach, ski resorts, good restaurants, bowling etc..

Cabin was as described in listing and was comfortable for 2 adults (and perhaps 2 small children). We didn't bring the dogs this trip but hope to do so in the future. Friendly neighbors too!

Wonderful place to spend snowy days during the winter. Snow every day made the trip memorable as we spent the Christmas holiday there. Lots of afternoon walks in fresh snow was also a plus (and a good workout!).

Not a complaint but rather a helpful tip for those that like to cook..... The cabin's kitchen could use updating as supplies storage for the dry goods we brought was a bit of a problem as kitchen counter space is limited but otherwise cabin was nice and comfortable. Note - We wanted to leave the kitchen table clear for eating and games we brought to pass the time. If you don't plan on eating in or playing games, the kitchen table is a good storage area.

You can't go wrong with renting this cabin.....

Owner's Response: I have updated the kitchen. I purchased a lovely butcherblock cart on wheels that will hold your food and can be used as a cutting board as well. If has stools for extra seating also. Cleared out my owners closet to make room for more kitchen supplies.

Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

My fiance and I stayed here with our two dogs. Nice cabin, very clean and well maintained. The cabin appeared larger in the pictures. I would not attempt to fit more than 3-4 adults espically the loft you can't stand up straight. Perfect for people who are only going to sleep here at night. Other than a little hippcup of losing power 90 minutes before our engagement picutres it was a great weekend and would stay here again!

Owner's Response: I was so happy to have another engagement happen at my cabin. A year ago I had a couple get engaged at my cabin and they bought the cabin next door and are now my neighbors! It's a charming place. So sorry the electricity went off but it was in the entire area. We worked hard to get it back on within 90 minutes. Not bad for the mountains. The sleeping loft is just that for sleeping. I can stand in it, but if you're tall, you have to slouch. It's perfect for a couple or have the children in the loft. Please come back to celebrate your wedding, or like last summer, I had a wedding couple stay with me who got married in South Lake Tahoe! It's a very romantic town, very picturesque and worthy of a great wedding spot. Sincerely, Hilary
