LeBon is cabin that provides guests with all of the comforts of home without the 'noise.' The cabin is somehow intimate and spacious simultaneously. The main entry to the cabin is a mud room/laundry room where guests can stage snow boards, skis, boots, heavy jackets, bathing suits, towels, etc. There are two bunk rooms upstairs, each with 3 built-in beds and one with an additional, double bed. Leading to the bunk rooms is a loft area that looks down upon the main living space. The loft has a couch that folds-out into a double bed. Just off the loft is a full bathroom. Downstairs there is another, newly updated full bathroom and two bedrooms with double beds in each.

Year Purchased: 1966
About the owner: The property was purchased in 1966 by two couples: Peggy and Al Lepore (Le), and Jo and Bob Bonnin (Bon). The cabin was completed in 1968. The French phrase, Le Bon, translates into English as 'The Good.' The Lepores and Bonnins between them had seven children, and now a dozen grandchildren also enjoy the pleasures of quiet, simple vacationing in the mountains above Lake Tahoe. For decades, friends of Le Bon have revisited the cabin annually, and the family/owners continue to maintain and upgrade the cabin so that the children, grandchildren, old friends and new visitors will continue to enjoy it for decades into the future.
Why the Owner Chose Talmont: When the Lepores and Bonnins bought the land it was thick with young trees and had beautiful, unobstructed views of the Lake. Even today, with houses built across the street, Lake Tahoe is still visible and beautiful from the deck, the living room and the front bedrooms of the cabin. Tahoe Park Heights Drive and Big Pine Drive are wide, paved and well-maintained roads that provide reliable, easy access to Le Bon throughout the year. The property is within easy walking distance to Page Meadows' trailheads, and just a short drive or mile-long walk to the beautiful, homeowners' private beach and recreation area. Sunnyside Lodge and Resort is next door to the private beach, and Tahoe City is a brief, 3-mile drive. Homewood Mountain Resort is less than 6 miles to the south on Highway 89, and the turnoffs for Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley are about 15 minutes to the north on Highway 89. Nearby, Tahoe City is a small stretch along Northlake Blvd that is loaded with bars, restaurants and retail outlets. Speaking of outlets, Truckee has a retail outlet center and is only about 25 minutes along Highway 89 North from LeBon. In short, this property is located for easy access to a wide variety of outdoor adventure, drinking and dining, shopping, and relaxing opportunities.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: LeBon has everything you'll ever need contained within. Its family-friendly rental rates, combined with proximity to numerous, local attractions, makes it an ideal and economical vacation spot. Conspicuously, it lacks things that tend distract from enjoying family and nature - such as TV screens. For years, the families that visit Le Bon have been grateful for the noise-free environment that results from the absence of television. However, for those who just cannot do without connectivity, LeBon offers free wireless for devices that you carry in with you.
Though LeBon can accommodate up to 17 people - 13 on beds and 4 on the living room built-in couches - it maintains an air of natural intimacy that makes it wonderful for couples looking for a cozy getaway. Its design, with the main living space of kitchen, living room and dining area under the overlook of the upstairs loft, gives the cabin a very spacious, open feeling. The simultaneous sensations of open space and snug, comforting warmth make LeBon unique.
Again, the rates at LeBon are family and budget friendly. The owners are determined to provide a beautiful place offered within an affordable price range so that families on a budget can stay and enjoy.
