The house is located in the Al Tahoe neighborhood. This is smack in the middle of South Lake Tahoe. The lake is within walking distace, and you are short 10 minute drive to the casinos or the South side of town with all the shopping. The house is located at the very end of the street next to the meadow so it's very removed from the noise of highway 50. It also is set up for a very easy walk to the lake or to the meadow. So many advantages for being in this neighborhood!
There is a bus at the end of the street that meets with highway 50, about a half mile walk from the house. The bus will get you to all the main attractions that Tahoe has to offer.

We had an amazing stay in Tahoe! The house is as pictured and everything was clean and accessible. The location of the house was also great! Ten mins from Heavenly with Safeway, gas, rentals, etc. right around the corner. Would also be a great location in the summer time since it it close to the lake. Overall we had a great trip and the house was one of the best parts of our stay!
We had such a great time at the bear house. Centrally located and very comfortable. Danielle is very easy to talk to. The only thing is the stairs to stairs leading to the bedrooms downstairs is very close to the kitchen and we had toddlers with us. There were no banisters or safety measures to cover the stairs so we had to move a furniture to cover the stairs to prevent them from falling. Otherwise everything was perfect for us. Grocery was so near, restaurants as well as the church.
We loved the Bear House , very cosy snd comfortable . Spa was great after skiing , close to all ski fields.
Danielle was a pleasure and the house was everything we thought it would be and more. She was extremely helpful in providing us with local information in addition to informing us of possible road conditions. We would definitely come back and visit again!
We had a fab time at Bear House, the pictures definitely do not do the back yard justice, it was heaven! Beautifully landscaped with a huge hot tub, it was perfect for relaxing after days of walking, kayaking and paddle boarding! Great location close to the lake, well equipped with all that you will need. Check in and check out was a breeze as it was all electronic.I would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing break in Lake Tahoe with a small group!
The pictures don't do the Bear house justice! It's so homey and quaint with a beautiful backyard!!! Danielle was a fantastic host and I would absolutely come back to this house. :)
Bear House was so great! It was the perfect spot for a co-worker get away from San Francisco to regain some sanity. Short walk away from a semi-private beach, great marsh hiking, and a quiet neighborhood. Also a 5-10 min drive from the casinos helped some of us pay for the weekend as well :)
The house was clean, stocked with whatever cookware you'd need, an AWESOME backyard with fire pit, and a particularly comfy couch. Danielle was super responsive and sweet, and the instructions for the house were clear and simple. Would definitely visit again/recommend!
I live and work in Napa Valley in the wine industry and am an outdoor enthusiast. You can find me most weekends either hitting the slopes, skydiving, mountain biking, running, camping, hiking, etc. Give me any reason to be outside and you'll probably find me there. I use my Tahoe house in the winter time but then open it up for renting in the summer. With all that Lake Tahoe has to offer, I'm certain you will find something you love that will keep you coming back as it has done with myself.
