Why Barbara chose Bijou 1

When I was growing up in Southern California my family vacationed most summers in Big Bear. It would include my grandparents, my parents, my brother and I, and of course our dogs. Since moving to northern California my husband and I began meeting his family in the Tahoe area every winter. I also just love skiing during the winter, hiking along the beautiful trails and lounging by the lake during summer.We are always excited to visit the Tahoe area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin was so cozy and great for entertaining everyone with all the games. The kids loved the yard with all the places to play and build snow men! There was plenty of room to sleep and fit the whole family. We had fun!

Extrememly roomy!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was SO roomy and spacious! We had 7 people and a dog, and the cabin still had room to spare! It was also conveniently located to many attractions such as a park where you can take your dog, the lake, and the casinoes. Excellent cabin for the prices! We'll definitely be staying here again in the future!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a wonderful time in my cabin. I think the comment I get most from guests is that my cabin looks small from the outside, but is very roomy on the inside.

Very convenient location

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin. It was close to everything we wanted to do and lots of space to spread out. Although not a big cabin, the owner is smart by putting multiple beds in each of the 3 bedrooms. The loft is a bonus for sure! That was a perfect spot for my 17 year old son. The only problem was that the weeds were over 2 feet high in both the front and back yards. We never got to use the picnic table in the backyard as the whole yard was full of weeds and the front yard the same. Disappointing to pull up to after arriving all the way from San Diego. Very glad we did not bring a dog as there was no way we could of let it roam in the backyard without getting full of stickers. High fire season right now for sure. We are not sure why this problem has been overlooked. Otherwise, a great cabin.

Centrally located!

  • 3 of 5

The property was fairly old but fairly well maintained. It seemed to have been cleaned in a rush when we had arrived, e.g dirty dishes in the dish washer and random paper towels under the bed. The towels, linens and amenities were a bit old, e.g scratched and deformed pans. However, the place was very centrally located, and we loved the enclosed backyard for our dog to romp around in.

Map

Car: recommended

My chalet is located in a small neighborhood in the heart of South Lake Tahoe. It is about 2.5 miles from the Heavenly Ski Resort. The lake is just over 1.5 miles. Great if you decide to take the bike path to the lake during the summer or if you would like to take a nice walk. And of course the casinos and movie theaters are less than 4 miles away.

The Neighborhood:

My neighborhood is in small residential area of mostly A-frame style mountain homes. There is a large meadow a block away that is great for walks. Bijou Community Park is two small blocks away. It is most famous for its world class 27 hole championship disc golf course. At the park there is also a Dog Park, fitness trail, skateboard park, children’s playground, group picnic facilities, and an open meadow. Just past the Bijou Community Park is the Bijou Municipal Golf course, the Bowling Alley, the Ice skating rink, and pool.

Other Activities: Ice skating, bowling, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, gambling
