"My family and I have been Tahoe cabin renters for the past 25 years. In an effort to continue the tradition, my husband and I chose Bear Haven mainly because of its proximity to the south lodge at Homewood Ski Resort and the sleeping capacity of the cabin. While the weather conditions were unfortunate (a.k.a no snow) the cabin is so well located and equipped that we did not run out of fun things to do during our four night stay. We had a great time hiking around the "backyard", sledding on Homeward Bound, riding bikes on the quiet street, playing pool & board games, cooking, visiting Squaw and Tahoe City and best of all warming up in the hot tub. We also really appreciated the cleanliness and well stocked kitchen. The only negative thing about the cabin would be the upper inside staircase which was treacherous and not safe for our bouncy 5 and 7 year old cousins or for the adults. While there are baby gates provided there is no way to block this particular stair case, so make sure to keep a close watch on your little ones while hanging in the living room. For perspective there were three couples and two children ages 5 & 7, although the cabin can accommodate more.
Overall we loved Bear Haven and definitely plan to come back next year. Thanks Dan and Debbie for your quick communication and for providing a great vacation cabin."

"This home truly exudes the Lake Tahoe cabin experience. From the amazing stone fireplace to the short steps to the water front, we truly enjoyed everything there was to offer. There is room aplenty for several families to enjoy, plenty of games for all ages, a fully stocked kitchen and beautiful front deck complete with BBQ. While we were hoping for a ski retreat, the snow was bleak, however the weather was beautiful, we enjoyed a walk around to the lake, drove to Emerald Bay and hiked down, enjoyed what little snow there was at Homewood Resort, dined at Sunnyside. This home's location is ideal to West Shore activities and close to Tahoe City. The owner's were a pleasure to work with, communicative and quick response time. We can't wait to come back. Thank you!"

"About 15 of us came up to celebrate my 28th birthday from Friday-Sunday. Anna was great and sent me the keys beforehand so we were all set to go (instead of getting there and fiddling with a lockbox or something). The stairs are a little rough, so I don't recommend it for people who can't handle a few flights. The main door opens to a big entryway, plenty of room to unload stuff, though I wish there were some coathooks and more mats for wet jackets and boots. The indoor woodroom is awesome, no going out in the snow for firewood! The two bedrooms downstairs each have a queen and 2 sets of bunkbeds, and there is a full bathroom and half bath down there as well.
The top floor is where its at- 3 giant couches and a recliner, a big fireplace, TV and big dining table, perfect for games! The kitchen is updated with granite counters and new appliances, and the house is fully stocked with extra paper towels, TP, etc. There was a even a blender and a crockpot!! There are 2 bedrooms upstairs with a queen bed each and a bathroom. Remember to bring sheets and towels!
But lets get down to the deck. The deck is AMAZING!! Views of the lake and all the trees covered in snow. We didn't get to spend much time outside but it was nice to wake up, grab some coffee and be able to look at the snow coming down.
The place was really easy to get to you, as you come in on the 89 there is a SaveMart on the left hand side for any last minute stuff and all the roads are generally clear. You get to drive right along the lake and the house is high enough for an awesome view but not hard to get to. And, its pet friendly :)
10/10 would stay here again! Thanks Anna!"
