Perfect familyChristmas Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property and location for our family Christmas reunion. Everything we needed was there, even a tree stand! Family came from West coast and all commented on what a perfect place it was. Having garage was great with 18 inches of fresh snow and plowed driveway. Being able to speak with owner instead of third party was very important. Calls returned promptly and always most pleasant. Totally recommend this property and hope to stay again.

Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a girlfriend get-away! The house came very well equipped, the beds were comfy and the beach was a short walk away! Loved the two porches and the fire pit area too! The owner, Jacque, was very easy to work with. We hope to be back!

Beautiful with a walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with everything we needed for a fantastic vacation. Our kids loved it, and we lived all the finishes, special touches, and clear instructions. Access to the private beach was perfect, and the location of the house can't be beat. The outdoor spaces were really large, so could accommodate our two families. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen was a breeze to use. All in all, an excellent place to stay. Thanks to the owners for such a great holiday.

Excellent Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great for our Christmas stay in Tahoe! We had some trouble getting the key upon arrival, but the owner answered the phone promptly and helped us through it. The cabin was just as advertised and everything was in working order. Plenty of kitchen supplies for everything we wanted to cook. The boys loved hanging out upstairs in the loft. We walked down to the Sunnyside resort for drinks a couple of times. Easy access to skiing and we drove to Reno for the day as well. Very comfy cabin and we really enjoyed our time there!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Brown Bear Lodge was a wonderful place to stay for our entire family. The home is open and comfortable, the kitchen is fantastic, and the location is ideal for heading down to the beach, out on a bike ride, or over to Fire Sign or Sunnyside. We loved having access to Tahoe Park for bbqing too!

We have just returned from a perfect Christmas week in your West Shore home. We have been renting homes/condos in Tahoe for over 20 years and this is the "best"! Beautiful home;amply stocked with cookware (I made a delicious prime rib for the holiday!); very comfortable beds; great hot tub and perfect location. We will definitely be back.

Thanks for everything.
