Reviews

Enjoying the incredible views in this wonderful area!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 8, 2013

Our party was trying to locate a cabin very close to the slopes of Heavenly Ski Resort in Lake Tahoe, CA, as we’d purchased 2 and 3 day passes to ski and snowboard. After searching through numerous VRBO listings in the Lake Tahoe area, we narrowed our search down to five listings. The very first picture from Bonnie’s Cabin listing in Lake Tahoe Keys looked fantastic so we dug a little deeper and would soon discover one of the coolest spots in Lake Tahoe; upon arrival, we found that Bonnie’s photos, although grand, simply could not do it justice! This beautiful 2-story Log Cabin served as a luxurious “home base” for us throughout our Tahoe trip. Located just a few minutes from Heavenly Ski Resort, the Heavenly Gondola, Casinos, and Restaurants, we could not have asked for more. If you step outside the back yard and fence, you can be at the river in seconds; follow the river west for a 15-20 minute hike and you’ll find yourself on a sandy shore looking out over emerald green and deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe which are surrounded by snowy mountain peaks with altitudes of up to 10,000+ feet. The sights alone while in Tahoe were utterly amazing, but the unusually crisp clean, fresh air was something we’ll never forget either. This enormous cabin is outfitted with very cozy updated furniture in both the great room and bedrooms. The Great Room has 2 couches and a few chairs, all of which are comfortable enough to fall asleep on within minutes (trust me, I know from experience). Also in the Great Room is a Pool Table, Shuffleboard, Ping Pong, Bar, Mini Fridge, Flat Screen TV with Cable, a Projector, Surround Sound System, and an Xbox! The 5 bedrooms in the house are furnished with very comfortable mattresses, warm blankets, and fresh/clean linens. The bathrooms were clean and stocked with toilet paper and hand soap. The cabin has a washer and dryer. There are two back porches: one upstairs with a picnic bench, grill, tall bar table with bar chairs, and a porch downstairs with a relaxing swinging chair that looks out into the wilderness behind the house. The Hot Tub was an awesome “go-to” option with an adult beverage after getting back to the house in the evening. Our time spent in Tahoe was an amazing experience – one that we won’t ever forget. Bonnie and Kris were so kind and accommodating to any of our needs or questions. We could not have asked for more! I highly recommend contacting Bonnie about availability soon if you plan to stay in Lake Tahoe. You will have a fantastic, refreshing vacation! The VRBO Bear

So much room for activities!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 3 nights with 16 of my closest "bros." We had a blast!! Volleyball net on the grass out back was the highlight of the weekend. Fleet of 4 or 5 bikes in the garage was a great touch (some could use a tiny bit of maintenance). Friendly neighbor was helpful to borrow a bike pump. Kayaks were awesome... please make sure there are enough paddles for all the kayaks. You basically never have to leave this place with all of the games and awesome stero/ projector tv set up. We had plans to go to the club at the Casinos but never made it out. Very clean and super helpful management when we had questions or concerns. Bunk beds were surprisingly comfortable for dudes in their mid 20's.

BEAR DOWN.

Excellent House and Even Better Host

  • 5 of 5

Kris was very easy to get a hold of when we had any questions. The house is near Tahoe Keys, which is a great marina where you can rent boats, jet skis etc. The house itself was the perfect size for our group and we loved that it came with bikes and kayaks. Plenty of pots and pans, dishes and utensils for our dinners we had each night. Thank you Kris!

Trip with the fam

  • 5 of 5

This place had a lot to feature. The game room and outside space took up most of our time. The kitchen was perfect, with the grill right outside. Anyway, its a really good spot and not too far from the casinos. Thanks for letting us stay.

Lots of fun!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much! My Girl Scout troop had an absolute blast! The only reason for not giving a 5 star would be because of the lack of mattress protectors. Just for the sense of cleanliness, a mattress cover/protector would be appreciated. I would LOVE to visit again and bring my family. It's a great place to connect with each other. Thank you again. Kris you're the best!!
