About the property

4 Bedroom, 2 Full Baths with Private Beach Access and Lake Views

LeBon is cabin that provides all of the comforts of home without the 'noise.' The cabin is somehow intimate and spacious simultaneously. The main entry to the cabin is a mud room/laundry room where guests can stage snow boards, skis, boots, heavy jackets, bathing suits, towels, etc. There are two bunk rooms upstairs, each with three built-in beds and one with an additional, double bed. Leading to the bunk rooms is a loft area that looks down upon the main living space. The loft has a futon/couch that folds-out into a queen bed. Just off the loft is a full bathroom. Downstairs there is another, newly updated full bathroom as well as two bedrooms, each with a double bed.

About Dan and Michelle Bonnin

The property was purchased in 1966 by two couples: Peggy and Al Lepore (Le), and Jo and Bob Bonnin (Bon). Construction of the cabin was completed in 1968. The French phrase, Le Bon, translates into English as 'The Good.' The Lepores and Bonnins between them had seven children, and now a dozen grandchildren also enjoy the pleasures of quiet, simple vacationing in the mountains above Lake Tahoe. For decades, friends of Le Bon have revisited the cabin annually, and the family/owners continue to maintain and upgrade the cabin so that the children, grandchildren, old friends and new visitors will continue to enjoy it for decades into the future.

Why Dan and Michelle Bonnin chose Lake Tahoe West Shore CA

When the Lepores and Bonnins bought the land it was thick with young trees and had beautiful, unobstructed views of the Lake. Even today, with houses built across the street, Lake Tahoe is still visible and beautiful from the deck, the living room and the front bedrooms of the cabin. Tahoe Park Heights Drive and Big Pine Drive are wide, paved and well-maintained roads that provide reliable, easy access to Le Bon throughout the year. The property is within easy walking distance to Page Meadows' trailheads, and just a short drive or mile-long walk to the beautiful, private beach and recreation area. Sunnyside Lodge and Resort is next door to the private beach, and Tahoe City is a brief, 3-mile drive. Skiing at Homewood Mountain Resort is less than 6 miles to the south on Highway 89, and the turnoffs for Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley are about 15 minutes to the north on Highway 89. Nearby, Tahoe City is a small stretch along Northlake Blvd that is loaded with bars, restaurants and retail outlets. Speaking of outlets, Truckee has a retail outlet center and is only about 25 minutes along Highway 89 North from LeBon. In short, this property is located for easy access to a wide variety of outdoor adventure, drinking and dining, shopping, and relaxing opportunities.

What makes this cabin unique

LeBon has everything you'll ever need contained within. Its family-friendly rental rates, combined with proximity to numerous, local attractions, makes it an ideal and economical vacation spot. Conspicuously, it lacks things that tend distract from enjoying family and nature - such as TV screens. For years, the families that visit Le Bon have been grateful for the noise-free environment that results from the absence of television. However, for those who just cannot do without connectivity, LeBon offers free wireless for devices that you carry in with you.

Though LeBon features four bedrooms and two full baths, it maintains an air of natural intimacy that makes it wonderful for couples looking for a cozy getaway. Its design, with the main living space of kitchen, living room and dining area under the overlook of the upstairs loft, gives the cabin a very spacious, open feeling. The simultaneous sensations of open space and snug, comforting warmth make LeBon unique.

Again, the rates at LeBon are family and budget friendly. The owners are determined to provide a beautiful place offered within an affordable price range so that families on a budget can stay and enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The snow, the cozy house, the post gift frenzie quiet. Champagne and vodka chilling to sub-freezing perfection on the deck, fires at night, raucous card games, reading, napping, feasting on gnocchi. Total rejuvination. Memories to last forever. LeBon is our favorite place to be together and stay connected. Thank you for giving it up to us for the holidays!

Family Friendly Cabin Near Sunnyside and Tahoe City
average rating of 4.5 based on 3 reviews

Great for family with small children!

  • 4 of 5

My family and two other families, a total of 12 people, enjoyed renting this cabin two times during the winter snow season. The rooms with bunks worked out perfectly for all of the kids to enjoy a sleepover, having two bathrooms was excellent, and the living/dining/kitchen area being open to each other made it very easy to enjoy spending time together. The children slept soundly upstairs while parents made plenty of noise downstairs, with no interruption to their beauty sleep! The property around the home is spacious and lovely and we enjoyed playing out in the snow. The home is a short drive down to the conveniences offered in Tahoe City and very close to some great sledding areas.

Family friendly is the word. Clean, simple, comfortable, well equipped for family fun.

WiFi, but no television, a real advantage for family interaction.
