About the Property

Log Cabin (3 Bdrm / 2 Bath) w/ Hot Tub, Sauna, Huge decks & fenced yard.

Welcome to the Enchanted Bear Log Cabin - the perfect place to experience Lake Tahoe. Conveniently located in Kings Beach, which sets you within ten minutes of everything that Tahoe has to offer for an easy and memorable vacation.

Charming log cabin built in the late 50’s with spacious decks in the front and back for entertaining friends/family - and a large fenced yard for well-behaved pets. Soak in the 7 person hot tub after a day on the slopes of Northstar or enjoying the beaches of Lake Tahoe. Relax in the 2 person infrared sauna and soothe aching muscles. Not merely a vacation rental, but a cozy home away from home.

Kitchen is well equipped with a large gas range for preparing the perfect meal, an espresso maker to get the morning started right and everything else you’d need to entertain a large group, including a dishwasher and BBQ grill outside on the deck for the perfect cook out. Living room has a new 37” Flat Screen with an Apple TV and hi-speed WiFi access. Comfortable couches for everybody to relax and a gas fireplace offers the ambience with just the push of a button Dining room offers a large picnic style table for enjoying big meals as a group - with huge windows out to the backyard to let in plenty of light.

One bedroom downstairs with a new pillow top queen mattress and a bathroom across the hall. Upstairs has two more bedrooms - a larger room with two twin size beds, a professional level foosball table, a 32” TV with a Playstation 2 and tons of games. Great space for the kids to hang out. The other room has a queen sized bed and an extra single which is great for a couple with a young one. There is a shared bathroom upstairs.

Enjoy your morning coffee/tea on the sun-soaked front deck with classic log benches and watch the squirrels and chipmunks wandering around. Spend your evening playing darts on the back deck as you grill dinner or soak in the hot tub. The Enchanted Bear Log Cabin provides simple, practical accommodations to get the most out of your Tahoe Vacation - and with the huge backyard, your dog doesn’t have to stay home.

Kings Beach is one of the coolest neighborhoods around and as convenient as it could be. A Safeway is just a few blocks away, restaurants, beaches, activities, parks with volleyball and grills right on the beach. Some people may be looking for a resort, but if you're looking for a HOME to stay in during your vacation - this is the spot.
