About the property

Chalet, 6 Bedrooms (9 when renting guest and caretakers unit) (Sleeps 2-22)

This is a one of a kind gem situated on the Stagecoach run in Heavenly Valley. It is only single family ski in/ ski out, in Tahoe Village!. Heavenly Valley is the largest ski resort in North America. Stagecoach (intermediate run) is the best access point to Double diamond runs such as Mott's, Milkyway, North Bowl and many others.

Others advertise Ski in/Ski out, but no others are closer than we are. Our front door is 25' from the run. Truly an incredible location for those diehard mountain enthusiasts! We purchased the Lodge in August of 2010 and have remodeled and refurnished. We handle all bookings, as well as arrivals and departures ourselves and will strive to make your stay 100% enjoyable and look forward to your return trips.

The Lodge has wonderful views of the lift, Carson Valley and of course the mountain and ski areas. Since we are located on the main lift, the roads are kept clear and typically do not present any problems.

The detached 2 car garage has board racks and space for all the ski gear as well. It is very convenient to just step off of the run and change in the garage leaving all of your gear there for the next day

The Lodge itself is 3 levels and has beam ceilings, oak floors, rock walls, 2 gas fireplace stoves, a great room encompassing the kitchen, living room and formal dining table that comfortably seats 16.

A spacious enclosed sunroom featuring incredible views and comfortable massaging recliners. The family room has cedar lined walls a wonderful Brunswick pool table, large screen TV, a 20' long cedar bar that has a sink, and refer.

The bedrooms all have views and are nicely furnished for your comfort.

'Bluego' the local shuttle service runs from early morning until 11:00 pm and will pick you up in front of the house and take you to the casinos, restaurants and shopping. It costs app. $2.00 for the trip. Hardly worth warming up the car.

Bedroom configuration as follows:

2 master suites with king beds on 3rd level. Sleeps 4

2 bedrooms on 2nd level with queen beds. Sleeps 4

1 bedroom on 1st level with bunk beds x 3. Sleeps 6

1 bedroom on 1st level with queen bed. Sleeps 2

1st level bedrooms share a bathroom through one of the bedrooms.

2 bedroom, kitchen, bath detached unit over garage sleeps additional 4 if required for additional fee of $150.00 per night (see vrbo #316731).

Caretakers apartment under house is also available at times and is often occupied by a part time occupant. It has a queen bed, full kitchen and bath. (add $145.00 per night)

We appreciate your having looked at our site and hope to be of service to you.

Amazing Time at "The Bear on the Roof"

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home for some snow fun over Thanksgiving for 10 family members (including 2 grandparents, 4 kids aged 13 thru 6 and 4 parents) and this home was perfect. I read many of the reviews of this home from different (yelp, Expedia, etc) websites as I was having a hard time believing the 4.5+ (out of 5) stars this place continually received. You can believe all of the great things you read about this home as they are all true! Lots of stairs (and a 7,500ft us sea level folks (we are from San Diego) definitely felt the hauling up the luggage), but worth every step we had to take. The pictures are accurate, great main room with well stocked kitchen, great dining table that allowed all 10 of us to eat at together and sitting room(s) (these are all connected on 1 floor). Kids loved the first level with the big TV and pool table and loved being able to sleep "away from the parents"; we also enjoyed having a semi-quiet area for all the parents to read, chat and enjoy the beautiful views from the large windows. All the bedrooms were nice with great comforters to keep you warm and there were plenty of linens (was awesome to also have a clothes washer and dryer). The home literally on a Heavenly ski run and their is a ski run "exit" directly in front of the home. Not much snow for us but enough so that kids could climb up the run (it had not opened up yet for the 2017/18 season) and play in knee deep snow, have snowball fights and sled down some good runs (there were 3 sleds in the garage for use). Area around the home is super quiet, 2 car garage easily handled the 2 Tahoe's we rented. Its about 15 minutes or so to local stores and the Heavenly Valley "village" that has lots of shops, restaurants and ice skating (you can also catch the Heavenly gondola here). I image with a lot of snow the drive would be longer as its a sing lane (each way) and windy road from the lake to the home and at times would require chains. We had only 1 issue (lighting the gas fire places) but Bob called us shortly after we texted and walked us thru the lighting (pilot had been turned off), everything else worked perfectly. If you're looking for a great ski home or just a great spot to have family and friends come together, this is your home! Next time we are looking for a "winter" retreat we'll be coming back here.

Amazing place with spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Robert's home over Christmas weekend. Booking was an ease, and Robert answered all of my questions regarding the property. When we arrived, we were able to check in a little bit early after talking with the onsite property person. The home is huge, warm and equipped with everything one needs to handle a huge family, on a Christmas weekend at that. Right across the street is a Heavenly slope, so that was a treat! Five stars for home, location and service!

Cozy and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing, very comfortable and well-stocked kitchen to have a nice sit down dinner with family and friends. The pool room and bar was perfect for everyone together. We hope to return to this property sometime soon.
