About the property

Guests looking for an authentic Tahoe experience should look no further than this Heavenly Valley 3 bed/ 2 bath chalet.

The Knotty Bear offers European style with alpine adventure and luxury. Nestled in exclusive Tahoe Tyrol, the lake and vibrant downtown are within a mile and Heavenly's California base lodge is just over a mile away, making this the perfect base to enjoy all of Lake Tahoe's summer and winter fun.

Guests will relish soaking in the outdoor spa, relaxing in the indoor, cedar-lined sauna or cozying up in the conversation pit centered around a wood-burning fireplace to swap stories and recap the day. During the summer, stroll to the heated community pool & Jacuzzi and take in views of the lake and surrounding mountains. This is spectacular at sunset.

The spacious kitchen is stocked with everything you'll need to prepare lovely meals or use the Weber Grill located on the rear deck to grill your favorite meats and vegetables. Dine where-ever you like - the dining room has a fabulous rustic wooden table that seats 8, the living room and/or fireplace pit both provide a great setting for casual meals, or head outside to the rear deck to enjoy the forest and have your feast.

For sleeping, you'll find extremely comfortable queen beds in the master and guest bedrooms along with dual bunk beds in the 3rd bedroom. There are two additional single beds that convert into chairs You'll find one located in the upstairs master suite and the other is located in the 3rd bedroom with the dual bunk beds.

Beary Nice

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin on the edge of forest... woke up first morning and went out on back deck with my Coffee only to see Mama and baby bear off in the distance. the Last night there we saw a big papa Black Bear... what an experience... the sauna and jacuzzi were amaing... felt so good to relax in the jacuzzi outside in the cool air... there were a few minor things that we experience but not really worth mentioning... managers were quick to fix.... i would definetley return here.... get a few wood logs and enjoy the wood burning fireplace, it was heavenly.

Great place to stay and relax

  • 5 of 5

We did stay nine days and we enjoy every day fresh air and snow.

Management is great and ready to assist you on any unexpected issues.

If the house will be available next year we’ll return to recharge our batteries.
