Property Details

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Room. Spacious, Rustic Beauty Backs Up To Golf Course

Our lovely mountain home, which accommodates 8 to 10, welcomes you with plenty of room for one, two or multigenerational families. Enjoy the home's warm and charming mountain style with comfortable furnishings, lots of light, decks front and back with a popular Great Room floor plan. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac and backing up to the Mountain Golf Course, we are just 5 minutes into town, to hiking trails, the beach, golf courses and Hyatt Casino.

There is a Master Suite on the main level and additional Master Suite upstairs, separated by a long hallway leading to two more Guest Bedrooms. The Twin Bedroom has a carpeted hideaway loft, reached by ladder, where our granddaughters love to sleep as an alternative to the twin beds.

Our kitchen has high-end appliances and plenty of cookware to satisfy any chef. For large groups, the dining room table seats 10 with 4 more at the kitchen island. Surprise: the dining table converts to a pool table for after-meal fun! There is also a Den/Game Room with TV, DVD, board games and roulette wheel.

On the back deck, overlooking the open backyard and golf course, you will find a Weber Grill and teak furniture in which to relax and enjoy casual meals during the warmer months.

We have an attached, 2-car garage which you may use, and there is additional room on the driveway for 2 or 3 more vehicles.

We have beach chairs, a cooler, a couple of blow-up boats, snow toys and many other items which we are happy to share.

About the Owner

After many years of living in various countries around the world, we were happy to retire to the San Francisco Bay Area to be near family and the many wonderful locales within a short drive. Because of our love for the beautiful outdoors, we recently purchased this home to have a place where family and friends could gather, be comfortable and have fun together.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
we had a wonderful stay at the Three Bears Lodge – thanks again for letting us stay, we found the place to be like a home away from home, the kitchen was exceptionally well stocked, everything was very clean and the house was so big that it accommodating everyone was no problem at all. We didn’t even have to use the Sofa bed. The kids loved sledding around the golf course. Owner very nice and accommodating.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Julia. We're so glad you liked Three Bears Lodge and were able to enjoy some of the sleds and snow saucers we leave in the garage. I will pass your comment about cleanliness on to my cleaning crew. They're always so glad to hear what a great job they do!

Amazing House and Super Friendly Owner

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 adults and 2 school-age kids and two other small families with young kids stayed in this spacious cozy house, from Christmas to New Year's Day. It held all twelve of us with no problem. Everyone was attracted by the rustic style furniture and decorations in their rooms, the spacious living and dinning areas, the fully loaded kitchen, and great forest views from the front and back decks.

It was a perfect location for the ski resort we chose, Diamond Peak, which is at most 10-minute's drive away, even with snow chains on the tires; so we could get on the lifts early in the morning to avoid the crowd during holidays.

There were plenty of things you could do after a cold day of skiing, relaxing your muscles in the Jacuzzi upstairs in the master bedroom, or playing board games or video games with kids (we brought our own Wii, which all kids liked.), or when the snow was nice and soft and the weather was not that chilly, grab the sled and snow saucers from the garage and hit the slope right behind the backyard. All our kids had so much fun.

Thanks to the pool table, every kid had a chance to learn to play billiard for the first time, and the adults also enjoyed playing it while the kids were concentrating on their games. :)

The owner, Chris, is such a responsive and nice person to communicate with. She answered my calls and emails promptly with all the details we need.

One thing we encountered at the end of the stay was, before we were heading home, we collected all the garbage bags and drove to the public garbage disposal, and were told by the people there that we were only allowed to drop off TWO large bags of garbage per week. Eventually, they let us drop all the bags, since obviously most of our bags were not full at all. This could be a tip for anyone who are lazy like us, who wanted to save a trip to the garbage disposal. :)

Anyway, this house is so far the best vacation house we have rented, and we will definitely come back again. Thank you, Chris, for sharing it!

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5
Excellent house, great furniture and a fully equipped kitchen. The living spaces are open and very comfortable with sufficient natural light. We shared the house with another family ( total of 10) and had plenty of space. We really enjoyed our xmas stay here and are happy to recommend to others.

6 min drive to skiing, if the kids are not tired enough they can play in the backyard or even sled on the golf course. They also enjoyed playing darts and billiards after dinner!

Owner's Response: We're so pleased that you enjoyed your Christmas stay at Three Bears Lodge! The snow has been wonderful this winter and we're glad your families made use of our sleds and snow saucers.

Our family of four (kids age 1 & 3) and some friends and family stayed here for 8 nights in August. The home was better than advertised. The home is very spacious and comfortable with room for the little ones to roam. We brought a child gate and there was one at the cabin so we were able to block off the stairs so the kids could explore. The kitchen is what caught our eye when we were looking at vacation homes on VRBO as we like to cook and it delivered. Great stove and appliances and the big space allows for everyone to hang out while meals are prepared. Large rooms with comfy beds and it felt like everyone had their own bathroom. The backyard is spacious and backs up to a golf course. Very quiet setting.

When we weren't cooking we visited the Incline Village beaches reserved for residents. Burnt Cedar was our favorite as it had multiple pools for the kids in addition to the beach. We ate out a few times and recommend Bites for dinner (w/o kids) and Austin's and T's Mesquite Grill for family lunches. All three were excellent and about 5 minutes from the cabin.

The owners were very communicative before and after we reserved the cabin and promptly answered questions. They also were easy to reach during our stay when we locked ourselves out of one of the rooms!

We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for an exceptional home in Incline Village. It will be our first choice when we return.

Perfect for family gatherings - of all ages!

Thanks so much for providing such a beautiful home for us to enjoy with our family. We had six kids, ranging in age from 10 - 17, and the setup was perfect. The location was great, we were able to enjoy all the benefits of Lake Tahoe, North Shore and South Shore - we took advantage of the private beach, and all the amenities provided. We will absolutely be back - hoping to make this an annual trip.

Excellent Week

  • 5 of 5
My family of five rented this beautiful home over the July 4 week. The home is in a great location, right on the golf course and extremely well maintained and stocked. It is in move in condition. The furnishings are first class and the kitchen has everything you need, and more. The two master suites make it a great location to host two families. We spent many hours playing pool and sitting on the rear deck enjoying the mountain air. The large garage had lots of room for our two cars and all our bikes. There are beach chairs, umbrellas and towels for your use. After dinner the kids and I sneeked out and played a couple holes of golf right in the back yard. We all look forward to staying in your home again.

Also includes a driving range, clubhouse grill, golf lessons, tournaments and special events. With spectacular green sites and contours, the Par-58 Mountain Course demands more accuracy than distance. Shot-making skills are necessary to navigate the terrain. Carved out of the pines with no harsh transition areas and no artificial landscaping, this course is all natural and a real challenge and joy to play. It's a tribute to its brilliant designer, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Every hole abounds with creativity and character in design, and many have incredible views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. Shots should be straight, to target sloping landing areas among pines and water features.
