About The Owner

Hilary Pender Entrepreneur Real Estate Professional Greater Chicago Area

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose South Lake Tahoe

I rented myself for 10 days and fell in love with the picturesque atmosphere and the South Lake Tahoe area. So I bought the cabin! It was perfect for my family and me to enjoy all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer. We love to ski and have two dogs, and wanted a dog friendly atmosphere. So what more could you ask for! The location is perfect to offer privacy but close enough to all the action. We can get to Heavenly in 10 minutes.

What makes this cabin unique

Just installed a wonderful, new Bisque Franklin-stove gas fireplace for lounging in front of with a good book or movie.

Dog beach four miles away! Great for getting out that canine energy! Lots of hiking trails too! Aross the street from the forest preserve.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Hilary 😊

We have checked out and are headed home. Just wanted to touch base with you. We had a great time! It was so cozy and comfortable. And loved reading your little guest book. Thank you so much! 😊

We would love to come back in the near future and bring my son.

And all in all we had a wonderful time!

Thanks again 😊

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cabin with another couple for the holidays and Hillary’s cabin had everything we needed, we had a great time. The cabin was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. The bedding is nice as well, besides the low ceiling in the loft we were able to sleep very well.

The cabin is close to Heavenly and downtown, so it is good for who is planning to spend the day skiing. It was really good to come back to the cabin and stay near the fireplace after a long day of snowboarding.

Hillary promptly responded to our reservation and all questions. I would definitely consider booking it again in the future and recommend to my friends.

Cozy cabin for our 2nd Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary weekend with a two-night stay at the Cubby Bear cabin. I literally squealed in delight at it's charm as soon as we stepped inside. Very comfortable and "homey" feeling. We spent most of our time out and about - enjoyed a dinner cruise to Emerald Bay on the M.S. Dixie paddle boat, explored the local flea market, took a drive out to Fallen Leaf Lake, jet skied on Lake Tahoe, and found lots of great places to eat. (Go to the Lucky Beaver Grill for the best burgers!) When we were indoors we enjoyed movies and games in the cozy living area. Nice sized master bedroom, though I have to say the futon bed took some adjusting to the first night. And I have to add, nice HOT showers! It's the perfect size for a couple to getaway or stay with a few little ones. (Adorable "mini" loft upstairs!) Thank you Hilary for sharing your little piece of cabin heaven with us!

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in your cabin. Thank you for being easy to deal with and for ensuring the cabin was clean and comfortable. Our kids loved the loft and we all loved the peaceful location tucked in the back among the trees. Next time we go back, yours will be the first property I check for availability. Thanks again for helping make a great vacation.

Peaceful location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I enjoyed Hilary's cabin. It is perfect for a couple, or a family with children (the loft isn't large enough for adults). Everything we needed was close by, we rented bicycles down the street and rode to the beaches several times. The evenings were very quiet, so sleep came easy. This was a great getaway!

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Hilary,

We had a wonderful time! My fiancé and I have talked about a cabin in the snow for years and yours is perfect! We're just getting into the groove of cabin life and now we're sad we have to leave but... we will definitely be back to South Lake Tahoe and the Cubby Bear Cabin! Kenny & Lyn

6year old loved the Loft!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Hilary,

Thanks so much for letting us “borrow" your home last weekend! What a cute little place. It was snowing and beautiful. A very peaceful, quiet setting even though it is so close to town. Just as described. We went for my husband’s birthday and it fit our family of 5 comfortably. My 6 year old thought the loft was the greatest thing! He is still talking about the cabin. Between the snow playing and that loft, what a great memory we made for him.

I gave my husband your email as he wanted to send you a personal thank you note himself. :)

Thanks so much! We are looking forward to our next trip to the cubby bear cabin!
