About the property

Nestled amongst the whispering pines on Tahoe’s Magical West Shore is Black Bear Lodge, a cedar wrapped mountain cabin offering luxury amenities amongst a rustic atmosphere. Plush robes, designer linens, accompanied with mountain décor makes this extraordinary home a top pick for returning guests.

Only a ½ mile south of Tahoe City, and 1 mile north of Sunnyside, this charming home is perfectly situated for walking on the paved path to town. With access to shopping, outdoor dining, cycling or hiking the many and varied trails, including the trailhead to Paige Meadows just a block away, which is accessible for cross county skiing in the winter.

With world class skiing at Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, and Homewood Resort less than 15 minutes away to top notch boating on Lake Tahoe (less than 1 mile away), to sledding at Granlibakken Resort just around the corner, there is something for everyone.

Enjoy the openness and light of Black Bear Lodge, featuring lofty cathedral ceilings throughout the grand space, with vaulted knotty pine ceilings extending into each of the 5 bedrooms. This split level home, has an attached 2 car garage with level access for winter, fenced in backyard with lawn for the kids or those family reunions, and is tastefully furnished in mountain décor. Built in bookcases can be found in the den/ 5th Bedroom, with a TV/ VCR, and adjoining ½ bath. It’s the perfect game room for kids or that space for extra guests.

Black Bear Lodge is the ideal spot for family gatherings. Your whole family will enjoy the open floor plan, so whether you are cooking in the well equipped kitchen or watching the snow fall from the expansive windows in the living area, everyone can join in on the conversation. The grand room is complete with wood burning stove, TV, DVD/CD/Stereo with surround sound. The living area extends to 2 private decks, so you may enjoy the wonderful morning sun and coffee, or the innumerable stars from your warmly perched vantage point in the bubbling new spa.

Black Bear Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed this great home in Tahoe City. We especially appreciated the exceptionally well-supplied kitchen with every amenity, utensil, and small appliance you could wish for. All the separate "spaces" (two decks, den, back yard, living room, etc.) were much appreciated by us six adults and two children. The decorations in a "mountain cabin" theme were a very nice touch. Very comfortable beds and bedrooms. It was also perfect for access to Tahoe City (a short walk), the Truckee River, bike and walking trails, and to everything around Lake Tahoe -- and happily out of the frenzy of South Lake Tahoe. The owner was very friendly and efficient in setting up the rental. We'll definitely recommend this others.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

What a BEAUTIFUL place and home to spend our Family Vacation for the 4th of July! 6 of us total ~ two parents and 4 young adults.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this beautiful home ~ well stocked, extremely clean, and directions for everything within the home. Comfortable and relaxing both inside the home and on the back porch with plenty of room for all. The hot tub was a huge plus and very easy to maintain and use!

Close enough to walk downtown to the lake, restaurants, grocery store and shopping.

We took advantage of jet ski and bike rentals, hiking, beaches, and the spa nearby.

The owners are extremely pleasant to work with and very quick to respond with rental information and any questions you may have along the way.

Highly recommend this beautiful home and we will definitely go back!!

Black Bear Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Black Bear Lodge was a great place for the 11 of us. The home is decorated true to Tahoe. Charlene had all cupboards and drawers labeled, and the kitchen was well furnished with cooking utensils and spices. We used the BBQ and hot tub and our grandchildren loved reading in the hammock. It was close to beach, Tahoe City and good restaurants. We would definitely consider using this very warm and comfortable home again. The owner was available for any questions.

It was a great vacation for our family.

Perfect family house!

  • 5 of 5

Black Bear Lodge was a great place for us to stay and ski Homewood. It was actually so easy to get to Homewood, we failed to check out Granlibakken.

The layout of the house allows for people to stay up in the living area and have plenty of quiet for younger people that need to sleep. My husband had to do quite a bit of work while we stayed, and it was great to have the option of using the den as an office while the others gathered in the living room.

The owner was quick to address any concerns or questions we had. Super nice people. She also has done her best to keep things organized and well labeled.

Great house for the Ironman race!

  • 5 of 5

Black Bear Lodge was great for the 10 of us (all adults) to stay in for the Ironman race. It was in a good location, in between the swim start at King's Beach and the run finish at Squaw Valley (much closer to Squaw Valley). The kitchen was exceptionally well-equipped, and the labels on the cupboards made everything easy to find. We had many happy hours being all together in the homey great room. The bedrooms were comfortable, and the bathrooms were numerous enough that we didn't often have to wait to shower. We also liked that the house was away from the crowds. We could come home and relax. We enjoyed the décor--in NY, we would call it Adirondack style--that gave flair to this mountain lodge. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the home just like the pictures, the extra touches were great too! A small but really practical one is that the very well equipped kitchen had labels on all of the cabinets and drawers: no longer did I have to guess if I was returning an item to the correct place or just where the last renter had put it. The den worked great for my 2 teenage nephews; both for sleeping and hooking up their game systems. My husband and I had the master suite and it was absolutely luxurious and comfortable, as well as spacious. Also excellent were the SPA, and the fenced, landscaped backyard. It was a great place for the outdoor activities. We definitely would like to rent this again.
