About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

We call this cabin the Bear's Lair. There are 3 bedrooms in the main house, and in the Cub House, out back, there is another room with a working bathroom (in the summer only!). There are 2 full baths in the main house. There is a full kitchen and a dinette with seating for up to 8. There is a family room with separate gaming table. A large master with a king bed, a 2nd bedroom with a queen bed, and a bunk with 2 trundle beds (or a total of 4 single beds) allow for comfortable sleeping for many people. We offer cable tv and free wireless internet. There is a wood-burning stove with firewood provided.

IN THE SUMMER ONLY:
In the Cub House out back there is a flat screen with DVD/VCR as well as a video game set up. We also have 2 futon chairs for additional sleeping. It has no heat in the winter but there is a fireplace heater out there for summer use. We also have an infra-red sauna out in the Cub House.

We live on a quiet street with many full time residents, just 1/4 mile from the beach, the shuttle to Homewood ski resort, PDQ Market and West Shore Pizza. 'Where We Met' offers homemade gourmet gelato and espresso/breakfast in the mornings. Our guests have access to our private homeowner's association beach with a dock and nice swimming area. A buoy can be made available.

Car: Recommended

Wonderful West Shore. Everything a family needs for a fun, quiet, peaceful vacation. Just a few minutes walk to our small HOA beach, PDQ Market, Sugar Pine Point Park, the Bear's Lair is located with convenient access to all of the wonders of the West Shore of Lake Tahoe.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: Our family bought this cabin over 30 years ago and has cherished it ever since. After many years of family vacations I lived there for 4 of the best of my life. My family moved from the Bay Area to Colorado in 2003, and we spend all year looking forward to our month-long trip to Tahoe every summer. It is our children's favorite place. We enjoy sharing this part of our family with others and love to hear how much they enjoy it as well.

Why the Owner Chose Tahoma, CA, USA:
West Shore~Best Shore, they say, and with good reason! With easy access to skiing in the winter and all water recreation in the summer, the quiet West Shore has easy access to Tahoe City, Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, but also offers a quick, beautiful drive to the South Shore in the summer. The whole basin is easily accessible from this side of the lake. We love hiking around Emerald Bay, exploring the granite bays of D L Bliss State Park and jumping from the big rocks, kayaking anywhere on the lake, and getting homemade gelato from Where We Met. PDQ sandwiches are something to experience, and bike riding into Tahoe City and along the Truckee River makes you have a big appetite for them! There is never enough time up there, and as we drive away each summer, we are already looking forward to our return.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Bear's Lair is a 1700 sq. ft. home with every comfort. The wood burning stove gets use all year round, the back deck is the perfect place for a barbecue, and the Cub House out back has an infrared sauna to enjoy after the physical 'labors' of the day. Our homeowners beach always has room for a lazy afternoon nap, and the view from the dock there is one of the most beautiful in the world. The smell of the pines and the whoosh of the wind in the tree tops stay with me all year.
