Overview

Lake Tahoe North Shore House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Kitchen is well equipped with a large gas range for preparing the perfect meal, an espresso maker to get the morning started right and everything else you’d need to entertain a large group, including a dishwasher and BBQ grill outside on the deck for the perfect cook out. 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

Wildlife Galore

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for a getaway. It is quiet and peaceful, and I enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching all of the wildlife coming and going in the yard. It is far enough away from main roads and businesses to promote a peaceful atmosphere, yet close enough to walk, bike or drive to great food, drink and activities.

The cabin is clean and well cared for. The beds were very comfortable. I personally judge a place of lodging by the sheets and towels, and they were good quality. I slept great. It has everything you will need, including a hair dryer. Lake Tahoe is breathtaking, and this cabin was a perfect place to enjoy it.

Adorable Cabin in perfect location with great fenced yard for the pooch

  • 5 of 5

We went up for Memorial weekend with our 3 boys and our dog. It was a great experience!! Before we even left we had communicated with Jacob and his timely detailed responses made us feel confident we made the right choice from the get go. The cabin was cozy with a great use of space and our dog was so happy to stretch his legs in the backyard. We were so impressed by how well the kitchen was set up with everything you would need (minus the food ;-) ) Kids loved the foosball table (a very high end pro table for sure!!) They hadn't used a hot tub before so really enjoyed that as well. Night time was clear and quiet and stars by the millions. It is a great location and we walked to the Java Hut every morning and the beach every afternoon. We are going to head back for sure sooner rather than later -- and later too. ;-)

Cute and cozy cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days last week and had a blast! The lake is a few blocks down the road and it was actually warm enough lay out for a few hours and take in some vitamin D! I enjoyed yoga outside the deck each morning, it's really quiet and peaceful here (even being in a neighborhood.)

We ordered pizza from a local spot and ate breakfast at the Kings Cafe after a walk on the beach but other than that we bought groceries and cooked food. Kitchen had good cookware and a nice big dining table (AND I was really happy to see there was a cake pan to make my birthday cake!)

I thank the owner Jacob (again) for answering all my silly questions prior booking.

I absolutely love this cute cabin and Kings beach, would recommend it over south lake where I visited last year!

Winter WONDERLAND!!!!! With Hot Tub & Sauna

  • 5 of 5

We spent hours looking through all the properties in Tahoe Area and couldn't be happier that we chose the Enchanted Bear log cabin. The owner was super helpful and very friendly. We got a ton of snow and were able to get some epic days of skiing - and finishing up a day on the mountain with a soak in the hot tub and warming up in the Sauna is about as good as it gets. The cabin is older but with plenty of charm but equipped with just about anything you would need and also had some cool gadgets like an Apple TV.

This place was well worth the money and would definitely recommend to anybody looking to enjoy some time in Tahoe.

Great cabin. Well stocked and clean

  • 5 of 5

This was a great cabin! It is close enough to town and the lake to walk and only a 5 minute drive to the casinos, and a 15-minute Drive to North Star and Diamond Peak. The cabin was stocked with much more than needed, including coffee and spices. We made sure to replace what we used at the end of the trip for the next vacationers. Good vacation Karma. Jacob, the owner, was very responsive and answered any questions we had via text immediately. The cabin also has Apple TV so we were able to order the UFC fight. Overall, we were very impressed and would definitely stay here again.

awesome little cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin for 5 days in July. It had everything we could need plus some. It was very comfortable and surrounded by trees and other pretty cabins. The beach is in walking distance although the walk back is uphill so be prepared for that. And there is a lot to do at the lake. There is a grocery store close by making it easy to pick up things you need. The owner is super nice and helpful. This is a great place to stay.

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.
