If you love this area and are interested in investing I'd be happy to update you on market activity and share with you all that Tahoe has to offer.

I am passionate about what the mountains have to offer and I am excited to share my home with you so you can enjoy Tahoe as much as I do.

Brittany Rupp Owner and Tahoe Real Estate Specialist purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Brittany Rupp Owner and Tahoe Real Estate Specialist chose Lake Tahoe West Shore CA

This home is my first purchase and my background is home remodel and real estate. So, with this home, I put my all into making the house perfect for anyone to enjoy. The home is fully remodeled top to bottom. This cabin is great place to come back to after a good day up on the slopes or after a long hike, light the fire, have some smores and relax.

What makes this cabin unique

Bear Den has a lot of charm and was originally built in 1965. If you are looking for the cabin charm in the woods, look no further. This house gets lot of great sunlight and has a large back deck. Walk out the door and head up the street to begin a nice adventurous hike. Bear Den is placed on a dead end road providing it with minimal traffic. The neighborhood is quiet and access is easy from the highway with flat roads. Close to lots yet that cozy feel in the mountains! Near Homewood Ski Resort, Chamber's beach and restaurant, Sugar Pine State Park, Bliss State Park and several great trails!

Loved it!!!

Loved the property! It was clean and well decorated, comfy bed and quiet. The outside was maintained just as well. Easy walking distance to the Tahoma market. Will definitely come back. Brittany was easy to work with and always responded immediately.

Very peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the "Bear Den". Perfect getaway for a couple. Quiet yet close to everything. Great hikes nearby including the Eagle Rock trail with an incredible view of the lake! Tahoe City is just a few miles away too! Would definitely come back.

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and lots of extras. The hot water was perfect after a long day out in the snow.

PERFECT, serene location. Close to a great hiking trail (lots of packed snow!), convenient to Squaw Valley and Tahoe City--less congested than South Lake. House was cozy with a comfy bed. Kitchen was small but had everything we needed--updated and clean! Nice little heater in the bathroom which was also clean and updated. We would definitely stay there again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in the snow. We had two couples and a small child and fit comfortably whether watching TV in the living room or enjoying games and family dinner in the kitchen. The place was cute, clean and had everything we needed for our weekend getaway! We would definitely stay here again.

You couldn't ask for a better location. This cabin is located within walking distance to a local general store and only a 5 minute drive to a public beach, Sugar Pine Park, and Homewood Ski Resort. Squaw Valley Ski Resort can be reached in a 20 minute drive and the town of Tahoe City is only 12 minutes away by car. Just at the top of the street is an access trail for hiking, walking and biking. Emerald Bay is a site to be seen and is 15 minutes South from the house. The house is situated on a flat lot and makes for easy access in all weather conditions.
