About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, hot tub, (Sleeps 10)

Dancing Bear Den!
In recent years three siblings and their families have enjoyed and shared with you, our Tahoe tourists, a cute, knotty pine cabin named after our 'Papa Bear' who created our family legacy with a Tahoe cabin for summer and winter adventures.

Instead of Papa Bear’s Tahoe Cabin, however, we are so excited now to introduce our new cabin, Dancing Bear Den! The Dancing Bear Den is just a few houses away from our former Papa Bear’s cabin, still has a view of Lake Tahoe, and has more room – and a hot tub!!!

We are sharing the cabin with you to create your own memories - whether family vacation, couple's getaway, honeymoons or ski vacation. The access is fabulous, right on the highway so you won't get stuck in the snow, with a wide, level driveway that can fit four cars and a boat.

Lake View! There's a partial view of Lake Tahoe from the deck and the living room.

Features! The cabin can sleep up to 10 people. There are two bedrooms downstairs, each with a queen bed, along with a full bath, washer/dryer, kitchen, and living room. There is a large loft bedroom upstairs, with two bunkbeds (full bed on bottom, twin on top) and a full bath. Paneled in knotty pine throughout, Dancing Bear Den is filled with the Tahoe bear décor.

Dog Friendly! There is a nice backyard to let your dog out. We will be building a fence this summer for Fido.

No Smoking! Please don't rent this cabin if you are a smoker.

Close to resorts! The cabin is located in the middle of the North Shore of Lake Tahoe, close to Northstar, Homewood, Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley, as well as Tahoe Cross Country Ski Center. Many more ski areas are within an hour's drive. There are beaches across the North Shore, public bus access right out the front door, restaurants and shopping within minutes.

This cabin opens the door to a wonderful world of Tahoe adventures.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: The family which jointly owns Dancing Bear Den shares a love of Lake Tahoe and frequently visits this special place. Of the three children, the Caninos have lived in Cedar Flat, just a few blocks away, for more than 30 years and manage the property; the Bransons are in the Reno/Sparks area and the Inman/Borgias family comes for frequent visits from Denver.

Why the Owner Chose Carnelian Bay, CA, USA:
Papa Bear chose to purchase a cabin so he could spend his summers golfing at Old Brockway Golf Course and enjoying his friends along the lake. After he went to heaven, his kids continue the legacy of a love of Tahoe. Now that his grandchildren are adults themselves, the Dancing Bear Den offers more room.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You will encounter a Tahoe experience in this cute cabin that you could not have in a motel or resort. You will experience Tahoe's quaint past in this cabin, while enjoying all Tahoe's many resorts, restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing opportunities.
