Perfect Tahoe getaway

  • 5 of 5

"Snowbear" far exceeded our expectations. Wonderful house, exceptional value. Great layout, open and roomy with plenty of privacy and two cozy fireplaces. We had four adults and two teenagers and could have easily had more people without it feeling crowded. The house is nicely decorated with lots of personal touches and thoughtful amenities. Everything you could possibly want or need for a relaxing vacation. Beds were extremely comfortable. The location was perfect. Quiet and woodsy, yet only five minutes to casinos and Heavenly Ski resort.

Nancy, the owner is absolutely wonderful. She responds immediately to any questions or concerns. I only wish all property owners were like Nancy. Nancy truly cares about her town-home and the people who rent it. We would happily rent ANY property she owned...sight unseen!! We loved "snowbear" and can't wait to go back. Summer or winter, I would highly recommend this property. Skip the hotels, you won't be sorry. Snowbear is a much better deal. Thank you Nancy, for sharing your home with our family. We had a fantastic time.

Overall a large well kept 4 bedroom townhouse

  • 4 of 5

The Snowbear lodge was set up very well. The kitchen was well supplied with almost everything a good cook would want. The furnishings were well kept and up to date . The biggest drawback is the quantity of stairs. Three stories of stairs was exhausting for the first two days, then it did become a little easier. Anyone who lives at lower altitudes may have difficulty adjusting to 7000 ft. The resort has very good facilities that are all up to date and kept up. Overall

It was a good time for mixed ages. We had 12 of us from multi generations from 6 to 85. I would recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review we are glad you enjoyed your stay and highly recommend our home.Just for clarification this is a two story home on a slight hillside so the garage is below the home. There are two sets of stairs and a guest can go from the garage level to the bedroom level. To get to the kitchen and dining area necessitates ascending eight additional slate stairs. (These slate stairs as well as the entry stairs are shown in Snowbear's photos.) Because Tahoe is at a higher altitude we strongly suggest our guests take it easy for the first day or so until they become acclimated to the "thinner air" Thanks again for your visit and the nice review.

Huge condo in a great locaion

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your huge condo. The upstairs kitchen, dining area and living room were large enough for us to host our entire hiking group for a dinner. The location was away from the hustle and bustle of South Lake Tahoe and provided great access to the trails we hiked. We had minor suggestions for improving our stay which we communicated to Nancy privately, but nothing we communicated affected our stay. The property was clean and well-maintained with additional pillows in the bedrooms and towels for the bathrooms. Besides hiking, members of our group took a boat excursion on the paddle-wheel from Zephyr Cove, hopped on the gondola up to Heavenly and shopped in Heavenly Village and other nearby stores. We enjoyed meals at nearby restaurants immediately after our hikes as well as using the kitchen and grill to cook a few dinners at the condo.

Ideal Family Vacation Spot

  • 4 of 5

The Snowbear Lodge was ideally located to provide our family a great vacation experience. It is located near but secluded from the bustling activity surrounding the casinos, eateries and downtown shops and attactions. We had easy access to all of the things that make South Lake Tahoe a unique summer vacation experience. The beach, hiking, shopping, gambling, dining, and just plain loafing were all on our agenda. The children enjoyed the pool at Lake Village and spent most days hiking at least one of the trails in the area. The lodge was comfortable and accommodating but the steps up from the sleeping area became a chore for the two pregnant daughters!!!! There is ample parking (we had three vehicles) and the weather was exceptionally nice during our stay.

We ventured out to Virginia City for an old west adventure, spent the day at Angora Lake and couldn't get enough of the spectacular scenery, swimming, and paddle boarding. Nearby Carson City provided access to COSTCO where we stored up on supplies for the week. The lake is surrounded by several sandy beaches and the children spent many hours playing along the shore.

Regrettably, we didn't have enough time to go horseback riding or play golf, but these and other pastimes are only minutes from the lodge. The entire family had an enjoyable experience and the end of our stay came way too soon!!

Thanks, Nancy, for all your help and assistance in providing us a memorable vacation.

Family Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great experience at this home. One thing we were not prepared for was that there was no A/C in the home, but apparently that is very common for Lake Tahoe. The owner was quick to respond and resolve any issues that we had. We would definitely go back!

Owner's Response: The writer is correct, A/C is not a common feature in Tahoe homes. Our home is blessed with numerous windows and two sliding doors which once opened cools off our closed up home rapidly. Additionally we have ceiling fans in the bedrooms and additional portable fans available. Simply opening the widows and allowing the Lake Tahoe air waft through our home will cool the the ambient temperature to a very comfortable level. We appreciate the nice review and are gratified our guest would return- they were great guests and we would be happy to see them again! Nancy- owner

Beautiful area and clubhouse with a filtered view of the lake.

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful home has plenty of bedrooms and baths for our family of 8. However, be aware that there are 3 steep flights of stairs. The downstairs bedroom/bath on the garage level would not be appropriate for very young children. The kitchen was well stocked and the living room was large, light and we loved the gas fireplace. We had a small issue with the internet connect, but Nancy worked with us until it was resolved. She was responsive and helpful. We would recommend this rental for other families.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your nice review and for your help in re booting the Internet! We will be posting the re booting procedure in our informational book we leave for guests! You were great guests-Thanks Snowbear like the majority of homes in Tahoe is a two story with a garage at ground level. To get to the second(Top) level guests would have to go up two sets of stairs to react the uppermost level. (Not 3 flights) To enter our home guests can enter from the garage through carpeted stairs OR through the front door stairs. In either case those stairs bring you to the entry level or bedroom level. A second set of stairs bring guests to the living room kitchen and dining room area. Garages are rare in Lake Village, and the vast majority of homes in Tahoe are two story! Nancy

Location

From the Owner

I visited Tahoe for the first time in my early 20's and fell in love with the incredible beauty of the lake,meadows, and mountains. I actually ended up purchasing 3 homes in this location including Snowbear. This area of Lake Village is in a perfect location! It is quiet and wooded, yet is only a mile or less to the beaches, stores, Heavenly Gondola and casinos.There is a nice shopping center just 1/4 mile up the highway for grocery needs. We have a clubhouse available for guests which includes a swimming pool, tennis courts, saunas, pool and ping pong tables. (Swimming pool and tennis courts closed in the winter) The property is well maintained and heavily wooded and It is surrounded on three sides by forest. The roads are well maintained by our own staff and snowplowed day and night to keep them open in the winter! When you arrive home you have comfy beds as well as a toasty and inviting private hot tub at your disposal!
