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!

Wonderful stay, definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time! The cabin is newly updated, very clean and charming. It had everything we needed for a comfy stay. The owner Brittany responded quickly to emails I sent with questions and you can tell she puts a lot of effort into making the cabin a great place for guests. Definitely recommend and would stay again.

We had a blast staying here!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is clean, and modern; no dark, stuffy old Tahoe cabin here! The kitchen, bathroom and living room were all well maintained and fully functioning. The beds were comfy and the house was quiet enough for our 2 month old to sleep all night long. Short walk to Tahoma Market and Chambers Public Beach. We will definitely stay here again!

Great little updated cabin on the West Shore

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Bear Den cabin, and didn't have any bear visits ;) Though we did hike almost right into a bear at DL Bliss State Park! We come to the West Shore every summer for our anniversary and are always looking for nice, comfortable cabins that we can enjoy and cook outdoors. This is a great little cabin.

Another awesome time at the Bear Den!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd time staying at the Bear Den and I could not imagine staying any place else! The location is great being just 10-15 minutes from Tahoe City. Sugar Pine state park is just down the road and the house is also within a 25-30 minute drive to Eagle Falls, which is absolutely stunning at this time due to all the winter snow. What really makes this a great place is the care that Brittany the owner puts into keeping it clean, well stocked and maintained. We noticed some items in the home had been replaced since the last stay, which means she is definitely paying attention. I love the updated 2nd bedroom with a super comfy double bed and a twin. Would highly recommend!

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.
