About the property

Log Cabin (3 Bdrm / 2 Bath) w/ Hot Tub, Sauna, Huge decks & fenced yard.

Welcome to the Enchanted Bear Log Cabin - the perfect place to experience Lake Tahoe. Conveniently located in Kings Beach, which sets you within ten minutes of everything that Tahoe has to offer for an easy and memorable vacation.

Charming log cabin built in the late 50’s with spacious decks in the front and back for entertaining friends/family - and a large fenced yard for well-behaved pets. Soak in the 7 person hot tub after a day on the slopes of Northstar or enjoying the beaches of Lake Tahoe. Relax in the 2 person infrared sauna and soothe aching muscles. Not merely a vacation rental, but a cozy home away from home.

Living room has a new 37” Flat Screen with an Apple TV and hi-speed WiFi access. Comfortable couches for everybody to relax and a gas fireplace offers the ambience with just the push of a button Dining room offers a large picnic style table for enjoying big meals as a group - with huge windows out to the backyard to let in plenty of light.

One bedroom downstairs with a new pillow top queen mattress and a bathroom across the hall. Upstairs has two more bedrooms - a larger room with two twin size beds, a professional level foosball table, a 32” TV with a Playstation 2 and tons of games. Great space for the kids to hang out. The other room has a queen sized bed and an extra single which is great for a couple with a young one. There is a shared bathroom upstairs.

Enjoy your morning coffee/tea on the sun-soaked front deck with classic log benches and watch the squirrels and chipmunks wandering around. Spend your evening playing darts on the back deck as you grill dinner or soak in the hot tub. The Enchanted Bear Log Cabin provides simple, practical accommodations to get the most out of your Tahoe Vacation - and with the huge backyard, your dog doesn’t have to stay home.

Kings Beach is one of the coolest neighborhoods around and as convenient as it could be. A Safeway is just a few blocks away, restaurants, beaches, activities, parks with volleyball and grills right on the beach. Some people may be looking for a resort, but if you're looking for a HOME to stay in during your vacation - this is the spot.

About Jacob Thompson

Have found adventure throughout my life - hopped freight trains across the country, lived in a treehouse 100 ft up in the redwoods during college, and pedaled a bicycle from Alaska to Argentina from 2006-2010. I currently work as a brand director for a company that makes high powered bike and scuba dive lights, but am dreaming of the next adventure.

Jacob Thompson purchased this house in 2013

Why Jacob Thompson chose Kings Beach

Fell in love with the Kings Beach area, the amazing bike trails in the backyard, the beautiful days at the lake swimming or playing volleyball the sense of community in the neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Everybody walks around in the neighborhood and there is a great sense of community. Surrounded by some of the most perfect scenery imaginable, everybody is inspired to get out and be active.

We loved every minute

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the enchanted log cabin over Thanksgiving was amazing. We stayed at the cabin with another family (altogether 9 people) and got to explore Mount Rose and Lake Tahoe. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary tools and the Foosball let us have some great tournaments. Hot tub and sauna are a relaxing treat after a day full of playing in the snow.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are amazing. They were always there to help me with any problems no matter how big or small. Both of my kids had a great time. We enjoyed the beach and went hiking and even struggled with the hills riding our bikes around. There is a neighborhood husky, Chief, that showed up every day for breakfast and dinner and enjoyed playing with our dog throughout the day. We are really looking forward to making this a new family retreat!!! I can not say enough good things about our experience.

Perfect location for enjoying everything Tahoe has to offer. Beachside recreation areas are a few blocks away for a day of swimming, sunbathing, volleyball, paddle boarding, boating, in the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe. Northstar is less than ten minutes away for world class skiing/snowboarding. An expansive forested area is just two blocks away with serene trails winding through the massive pine trees and up to epic views of the lake - also great for mountain biking, snowshoeing, dirt bikes, and snowmobiling. Restaurants, grocery store, and shopping is a short walk through the neighborhood. Northshore casinos are 5 minutes away with tons of entertainment scheduled. Everything you’d want to do in Tahoe is less than ten minutes away.
