Guestbook comments from the owner

We planned this trip for Jeremiah's 30th birthday and the place if the

perfect size for just the two of us. It's only minutes away from the

beach, shopping, Heavenly, etc. Thank you so much for letting us stay

here! The neighbors and managers have been so friendly and

respectful. We would love to come back and stay. With the other

cabins near by we would like to try and make a big family trip!

Thanks Again!

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin! We visit Lake Tahoe often and wanted to try staying in a cabin for the first time. Many cabins are either old and impersonal, or too big for a small group (our group consisted of 2 people and a dog). The cabin has 2 levels; the top level has a low ceiling and would be ideal for 2-4 small children. The L-shaped sofa is very comfortable. We really loved the Franklin fireplace and the cozy ambience. Most importantly, it was very clean on our arrival. The small living room, kitchen, and dining area are interconnected so you feel like you are always with each other, which feels very cozy. The location is very close to Raley supermarket, Starbucks, Sprout Cafe, and other attractions of South Lake Tahoe. If people enjoy cooking gourmet meals, they should plan on bringing their own spices and condiments. Luckily it's very easy to run to the grocery store if you need anything late at night. The cabin was comfortable even when it was frigid outside. There was no snow when we came but we still enjoyed our getaway. It is off the main highway so it's very quiet at night. The shower was awesome! The hot water was constant and pressure was excellent. Hilary was very responsive to all of our questions during the booking process and after we checked out of the cabin. Thank you for letting us stay at the cabin- we highly recommend it to anyone and will be back!

Enjoyed the cabin and the area it is located. Central to many activities -- hiking, beach, ski resorts, good restaurants, bowling etc..

Cabin was as described in listing and was comfortable for 2 adults (and perhaps 2 small children). We didn't bring the dogs this trip but hope to do so in the future. Friendly neighbors too!

Wonderful place to spend snowy days during the winter. Snow every day made the trip memorable as we spent the Christmas holiday there. Lots of afternoon walks in fresh snow was also a plus (and a good workout!).

Not a complaint but rather a helpful tip for those that like to cook..... The cabin's kitchen could use updating as supplies storage for the dry goods we brought was a bit of a problem as kitchen counter space is limited but otherwise cabin was nice and comfortable. Note - We wanted to leave the kitchen table clear for eating and games we brought to pass the time. If you don't plan on eating in or playing games, the kitchen table is a good storage area.

You can't go wrong with renting this cabin.....

Owner's Response: I have updated the kitchen. I purchased a lovely butcherblock cart on wheels that will hold your food and can be used as a cutting board as well. If has stools for extra seating also. Cleared out my owners closet to make room for more kitchen supplies.

Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5
My fiance and I stayed here with our two dogs. Nice cabin, very clean and well maintained. The cabin appeared larger in the pictures. I would not attempt to fit more than 3-4 adults espically the loft you can't stand up straight. Perfect for people who are only going to sleep here at night. Other than a little hippcup of losing power 90 minutes before our engagement picutres it was a great weekend and would stay here again!

Owner's Response: I was so happy to have another engagement happen at my cabin. A year ago I had a couple get engaged at my cabin and they bought the cabin next door and are now my neighbors! It's a charming place. So sorry the electricity went off but it was in the entire area. We worked hard to get it back on within 90 minutes. Not bad for the mountains. The sleeping loft is just that for sleeping. I can stand in it, but if you're tall, you have to slouch. It's perfect for a couple or have the children in the loft. Please come back to celebrate your wedding, or like last summer, I had a wedding couple stay with me who got married in South Lake Tahoe! It's a very romantic town, very picturesque and worthy of a great wedding spot. Sincerely, Hilary

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5
Hi, Hilary, Our family loved your Cubby Bear Cabin! It was very comfortable, clean and well stocked. We were so thankful that you had charcoal lighter fluid so we used that and left charcoal there for the next guests. I think that's probably how it works - you take something - you leave something. The kids loved the loft and we loved sitting out in the yard under the Pines and the stars. Just yesterday I gave your site tom someone who was asking about a good place to stay in Tahoe. Many thanks for a delightful stay. Our family really enjoyed it! Thanks! Jen Siefer

Hilary -

Good evening! We're just back from the cabin. We cannot thank you enough!!! That was such a wonderful weekend, and the cabin is so perfectly located and absolutely charming. Thank you so much. We left the place in tiptop shape, so there shouldn't be too much cleaning to do!

Again, thank you.

From the Owner

I rented myself for 10 days and fell in love with the picturesque atmosphere and the South Lake Tahoe area. So I bought the cabin! It was perfect for my family and me to enjoy all that South Lake Tahoe has to offer. We love to ski and have two dogs, and wanted a dog friendly atmosphere. So what more could you ask for! The location is perfect to offer privacy but close enough to all the action. We can get to Heavenly in 10 minutes.
