About Kim Bearly

Our whole family loves sports and the outdoors. We rented cabins many times in Tahoe Donner over the years and we enjoyed all of it - Donner Lake, the tennis center, cross-country and downhill skiing and - being a competitive swimming family - that heated lap pool at Trout Creek. When we decided to buy a home in the mountains, Tahoe Donner was the only true choice. It is great for both winter and summer. We look forward to fun times and wonderful memories here and we hope you will too.

Kim Bearly purchased this house in 2011

Why Kim Bearly chose Lake Tahoe North Shore CA

Tahoe Donner offers everything you could want summer or winter, for outdoor recreation and relaxation. Truckee with it's fun bars, restaurants and shops is right around the corner. A little further afield and you are in the Old West at Nevada City for Chili cook-offs, taking the railroad, touring the Comstock or, exploring the various lakes and towns in the area. And of course Tahoe City and Lake Tahoe are accessible by a lovely bike path. It is a true year-round vacation destination.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week in this beautiful home. The house has very homey feel with all the basic amenities and more. The house has plenty of activities for the kids such as games, puzzles , and Legos. The location of the house is perfect for vacationing. It is situated in the Tahoe Donner area so the house comes with guess passes that get you into the recreation centers for a discounted price. We took advantage of the passes and swam a couple times. The owner, Kim is fantastic! She is very responsive with any questions about the house or area. We will definitely stay here the next time we go to Tahoe.

Fantastic stay!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the magical, spacious mountain cabin. Fits two families comfortably and is very well kept. The air hockey table is a plus! We would come back again. Kim was timely with her notices and updates on any changes.

Thank you!

Fantastic Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Kimberli was fantastic to rent from.

Cabin had all of the amenities. Neighborhood is a ton of fun. Very easy for making meals for the family and lounging around the fire, following a day in the snow. We're planning on being back soon.

I would be happy if we had the same set up next year.

  • 5 of 5

Overall it was great. Plenty of room for everyone. Warm. Beds were comfortable. The main downside was lighting in the living room where we wanted to hang out for a bit. We had to hunt for light switches. Had all the kitchen amenities we needed.

I would be happy if we had the same set up next year.

Owner's Response: Hi Justine, I'm sorry you had this problem and wish you had called me. There is a lot of light in the family room - so much we have the fan and sconce on dimmers. There is a wall switch for the 150 watt wall sconce, the 100watt ceiling fan light (on remote), a 150 watt standing lamp and 2 table lamps for reading. Always call - there is always an answer. Come again!
