Lazy Bear Lodge Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
Great family retreat at this beautiful, warm and cozy home. The floor to ceiling windows were amazing for allowing us to enjoy to outdoors right from the main living area. We had great fun with the family enjoying surrounding attractions and the beautiful star-filled night sky. Mark & Karen, thank you so much for sharing.

Happy customers -- including a grumpy teenager

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five includes a 16 year old, 12 year old and a 5 year old. We vacationed for 5 days in this cabin with my dad and his wife. Everyone was pleased with the accommodations and the surrounding area. Our interactions with the owners were very professional and prompt. We had a dishwasher issue on our 3rd night. The owner called as soon as he could. A repairman arrived within 90 minutes.

Great escape with little kids

  • 5 of 5
We brought our 2 & 4 year old kids, and it was great. The cabin is child-proofed, and there's plenty of play areas (indoor and outdoors). They particularly liked the horse swing, made from an old tire--a clever and fun use of the tire!
Plenty of nice family places to eat nearby, and the local grocery is as fully stocked as any Safeway.
Beautiful, relaxing escape for all ages.

This cabin is a real gem, great maintenance by the owner w/high speed internet

  • 5 of 5
We enjoy this community in Arnold, clearly much less crowded than Tahoe and reasonably priced. We enjoyed this cabin for its creature comforts, new appliances, quality and taste in the decor and overall cleanliness. The owner is available by internet or phone if you have any questions or issues, very responsive guy who cares about your experience.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin has everything you need for a relaxing weekend getaway. The kitchen and bathrooms were remodeled since the last time we stayed here and they look fantastic. As always the cabin was immaculately clean and everything was in good working order. The location is very quiet and is set back from the street to create a private oasis in the trees. We really enjoyed the netflix and Amazon videos at night and hiking during the day.

Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5
My family, including 3 young adult daughters, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lazy Bear Lodge. Yes, there are games and all other kinds of fun things for little children but it is so comfortable for older children as well. The deck is absolutely the best part of the cabin. It is never directly in the sun so it is accessible for morning coffee and afternoon wine or cocktails. Fabulous kitchen as well with anything extra you may need. We will be coming back again!
