Property description

Come enjoy the quiet west shore of Lake Tahoe and Bear Haven cabin for year-round fun. Located near the south base of Homewood Mountain Resort, Lagoon Road is family friendly, close to the bike path and backs up to forest! In summer enjoy our full membership of Chamber's Pool, Beach and Tennis Club. In winter, walk down the road to ski and back to the house through the woods for lunch or at the end of the day! Our rustic getaway backs up to open space, hike, mountain bike, snowshoe or x-country ski from the house depending on the season!

Remodeled kitchen last Spring: New cabinets, double oven, counters, refrigerator and dishwasher!! We have also added a gas cook top and pantry. New double vanity in the master bath. Always trying to make improvements to the house so our guests will have an enjoyable stay.

Great house for any season...please don't miss the 'guest comments from the owner' below, click on 'continue reading' in the lower right to access the contents of over 70 reviews over more than 15 years from the guest books of Bear Haven! BEAR HAVEN is the perfect home to gather family and friends for your year-round fun and wildlife viewing. Play ping-pong or pool in the large Game Room (complete with plumbed bar and entertainment area) and soak in your own professionally serviced hot tub without leaving the house! A fantastic location in the Chamberlands area of Homewood means we have skiing at the end of the road at Homewood Mountain Resort in Winter, a private beach/pool/tennis on the Lake in Summer. Open space trails behind our rustic A-frame and close to the Bike Path.The house is 3 levels: 1st floor has mud room, game room, master (king), full bath and laundry room. 2nd floor has open living room/kitchen, bedroom (queen and twin), 3/4 bath, large front deck and back deck with spa and new 5 burner gas grill BBQ. 3rd floor has two bedrooms (queen and full beds in front; queen and twin beds in back) These share a 1/2 bath and each has a small deck.

Spring and fall are the best in Tahoe, crowds are gone and wildlife abounds. Park your car and bike or hike in the woods right out the back yard or down the bike path. Our families build natural forts right out the back! Walk or bike to the General Store/Deli in Homewood or along the bike path to the beach and Tahoma amenities. Very quiet and peaceful.
Relax in the private hot tub or by one of the warm fireplaces!

Summer rentals are weekly Saturday to Saturday with long weekends available early and late. Rates include the famous Chamberlands Club with private beach, pool and tennis courts! Dates of operation: June 19 through Labor Day; 10:30-5:30 (Lifeguard staffing)
Shuttle Bus Service approximately June 25-August 14 11:00-6:30pm and passes right in front of Bear Haven. Grandma, grandpa and the young ones can come and go while the older kids hang out at the beach all day!
Guests to the west shore are often confused about the summer amenities here: The amenities are actually two memberships, one to the Chamberlands Beach and Mountain Club which maintains the two private beaches with roped swim areas, lifeguards, paddle boats and summer day and evening family activities. The second is the Chamberlands Recreation Club which includes and maintains entrance to the private Heated Pool with lifeguards, lounges and private restrooms. The private pool and beaches are integrated into a public pier, bar and restaurant right on the lake. Free Family Movie Nights Wednesdays at the Beach early July to early August : Bring chairs, blankets, cooler, flashlight and container for trash. Free popcorn!
The origin of these clubs can be confusing. Upon developing the Chamberlands condominiums about 30 years years ago, the adjacent homes in Chamberslands I and II were offered a chance to purchase a membership in one or both clubs. The opportunity for the pool/tennis club was once in a lifetime and is linked to the specific home's title. At this time, most homes in Chamberlands maintain a membership in the Beach and Mountain Club, while only a portion of homes have access to the pool and tennis facilities with a hefty yearly fee. We have both. This part of the lake also has a public portion of beach available to other homes in the area (ex:Tahoma, McKinney, Homewood) which is on the southern edge of this sandy beach area of Lake Tahoe.

WINTER: Enjoy a 3-day weekend, or a discount for mid week stays! Our guests love to ski at uncrowded Homewood Mountain Resort (a short walk or ski down Lagoon Road); then ski into the backyard for lunch! Or meet Grandma and Grandpa (an easy walk away) at Homewood's South Lodge for a mid-day family gathering!(seasonal, call).
The ski area has lots of promotions for lift tickets, check their website skihomewood .

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: A retired UCLA trained dentist now living in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Spent many years in the Bay Area and this was our family cabin when my sons were growing up. We now have wonderful liasons living and working in Lake Tahoe that help us maintain our cabin for our many guests.

Why the Owner Chose Homewood, CA, USA:
Lake Tahoe can be SO busy any time of year, but the West Shore is the prettiest and quietest. We enjoyed parking the car during visits and not using it again until it was time to go back home. The open space behind the house and quiet street were a stark contrast to our home in Ross and the hiking is awesome. This part of Homewood/Chamberlands neighborhood only has two roads above West Lake Boulevard, which allows easy access by bike, and creates a quiet neighborhood with few cars so the boys could play in front or back. The lake is quite close by and we would have a much better view of it if there weren't so many beautiful conifers growing all around us! Truly feels like the woods! The early nineties were drought years and Tahoe had very little snow. Being on the 'shady' side of the lake, the little snow that there was would last much longer than anywhere else...making for snow play all winter! Lake Tahoe's shoreline is primarily private, so we wanted a home that also had access to a beach. Chamberlands is one of the nicest clubs in Tahoe with sandy beaches and all its facilities together at the lake. What a wonderful setting!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
More wonderful family memories at a fun cabin in the woods with wildlife and recreation all around us. The game room was always the boys domain and the separate kitchen/living area always seemed to be the adults' hangout. The three levels gives everyone a bit of space and privacy when desired. The hot tub on the back deck is in a wonderful forest setting, and although we have neighbors to the north and south, the situation of our home slightly to the west gave us total privacy there.
