Nancy Hawkins purchased this Townhome in 2004
Why Nancy Hawkins chose Round Hill Village
I visited Tahoe for the first time in my early 20's and fell in love with the incredible beauty of the lake,meadows, and mountains. I actually ended up purchasing 3 homes in this location including Snowbear.The community of Lake Village is in a perfect location! It is quiet and wooded, yet is only a mile or less to the beaches, stores, Heavenly Gondola and casinos.There is a nice shopping center just 1/4 mile up the highway for grocery needs. We have a clubhouse available for guests which includes a swimming pool, tennis courts, saunas, pool and ping pong tables. (Swimming pool and tennis courts closed in the winter) The property is well maintained and heavily wooded and It is surrounded on three sides by forest. The roads are well maintained by our own staff and snowplowed day and night to keep them open in the winter! When you arrive home you have comfy beds as well as a toasty and inviting private hot tub at your disposal!

Great for groups
What we enjoyed most is the upper level of the home. Living room, kitchen, and dining room occupy one large space. So a group preparing dinner doesn't have to be isolated from a group sitting by the fireplace or tv.
Few minutes drive to the Gondola. Uber and Lyft are generally accessible. Non surge pricing was ~$8, with surge ~$25.
The owner is great to work with. This was my first time booking through VRBO. As a result, I inadvertently missed a couple of deadlines for responding with documentation. She had the chance to cancel my booking and place it back on the market. Instead she took into account my inexperience with VRBO and patiently worked with me until everything was squared away.
Thanks for the feedback! I 'm glad Jonas guest and his friends had a great time. Our guests love our spacious living/dining area because it is indeed a great "gathering place" We appreciate the updates re: Uber and Lyft rates. Taxis are a great option for those who want to venture out for shopping/sightseeing. Taxi's are also a safe way to hit the casinos and nightlife with the assurance that they will have a safe incident free ride back to our home! We totally understand how daunting it can be on a first time booking, however we also know that each of us at one time were "newbies" to the process!!
Thanks again Jonas, You were great guests and it was a pleasure to work with you!
Great stay very nice house for a 3 families
Excellent house with few gotchas. Electronic equipments are little outdated. Parking is little painful if you have more then 3 cars. If those are not a priority then this home is great.
We're glad that our guest had a "great stay" and found or home to be a "nice house for 3 families." I reached out to our guest for a definition of "outdated electronics". He stated he was speaking about the fact that I have a DVD/VCR player in the cabinet of the flat screen TV in the living room. I also have included some DVD's and old VCR tapes with everything from old movies to cartoons for the kids. This inclusion is simply an added as a courtesy for the use of young children and adults to use if they want simple entertainment for the kids or the whole family in the event of poor weather. Many guests have commented that this inclusion of cartoons and tapes has been a
wonderful help in entertaining their children when rain or snow curtails their outside excursions! Snowbear has very fast Internet and updated flat screen TV's in the each bedroom and the living room.
Lake village has a two vehicle limit for each residence. Because we have a garage we can easily park at least on in the garage and two additional cars in the driveway in front of the garage. Additional parking may be available elsewhere in the complex or in the nearby
free county structure. Our nice Lake Village staff can advise of those locations.
Our guest further told me that the internet and everything electronic was in good working order. We hope to have him and his family as our guest again soon!
Great cabin for our group!
Our church's small group stayed at Nancy's lodge in March. She was so helpful from the time of booking up until the day we left! The rooms were clean, the instructions were clear, and everything was functioning. The fireplace was having issues, but Nancy sent someone to the rescue right away! We loved the little travel toiletries in the bathroom - so cute! The kitchen had all of the essentials that we needed. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to use the hot tub, but maybe next time! The lodge is really close to the Stateline, casinos, and Heavenly. We had no issues finding it or getting in. Would love to see it during the summer to put that deck to use. Thank you, Nancy, for everything! We had a great time!
Thanks Connie and the rest of your church ladies! We're pleased that you found our home clean, comfortable in a convenient location and that you had a great time. Our plumber was able to install two new parts in the fireplaces to help maintain the pilot light. We hope you will return in the summer, you were wonderful guests!
Great location, lots of space
There were 7 of us staying at Snowbear and we found it to be very comfortable and convenient. There was plenty of room for everyone and we were only a 10 minute drive from the Gondola. The hot tub in the garage was an odd sight but we still ended up using the hot tub regularly- worked great! We would definitely come back again.
Thanks for your great review, we are pleased to know you found Snowbear to be roomy comfortable convenient and close to all! Although we do explain the placement of the hot tub in the listing narrative and show it's location in the photos with captions, some guest miss that information.Unfortunately we are not able to put the tub on the exterior ground because of the threat to small children who might gain access. Due to the weight and size the hot tub cannot be safely placed on the 2nd story decks! The plus about the garage location is that it is private, accessible from the interior of the home and offers complete privacy from the outside world! It's location also allows our guests to use it any time of the day or even after the 10 PM noise and outside activity curfew that is mandated in Tahoe. We look forward to you next visit!
Perfect for 2 families
We had two families each with 2 kids and it never felt crowded. The space was clean and easy to use.
Great stay, but could be improved
The place was nice, but would use some pretty easy upgrades, things like pots and pans in the kitchen and utensils. Other than that the place was clean and nice.
I'm glad our guest had a great stay at our home and stated it was clean and nice! I reached out to this guest and he explained that apparently one of the pans was possibly warped on the bottom and did not properly rest on the stove. Fortunately they were able to use another large fry pan as well as other pans that met their needs. We are consistently inspecting our home for worn or damage items and and replace them on a regular basis. We have ordered some replacement cookware to ensure that our guests have the have the cooking items they need for their stay.
