Updated Home w/ Private Hot Tub, Sledding Hill, WiFi & Shared Pools/Gym!

Whether you're planning a Lake Tahoe getaway or looking to work from home in a serene alpine setting, this bright and airy escape will treat you to a wonderful Tahoe Donner location and lovely views of the surrounding woodlands and mountains from almost every room. In the snowy winter months, you'll have your own sledding hill out back, a private seven-person hot tub and a wood-burning stove to warm you up after a day spent in the snow, and new Allswell mattresses in the bedrooms to ensure you're rested for the next day's adventures. Come summer, enjoy a large outdoor deck and your very own gas grill for afternoon barbecues among the evergreens.

The interior has been thoughtfully and stylishly updated, with stainless steel appliances in the fully equipped kitchen, a table for 12 in the dining room, and a new 70-inch Smart TV (with YouTube TV) in the upstairs family room. Two of the rooms even include desks, allowing you to work from home seamlessly. At night, you'll have four bedrooms to choose from - a master suite with a king-size bed and an attached bathroom with heated floors, a second bedroom with a queen-size bed and a double bed, a third bedroom with queen-over-queen bunks and a twin trundle bed, and a nursery with two cribs, a firm foam mattress, and a humidifier. The queen-size sleeper sofa in the upstairs family room is even outfitted with a memory foam mattress.

What's nearby:
This home is surrounded by protected greenbelt forest, offering a bit of extra privacy within the Tahoe Donner community.

Tahoe Bear Den, LLC J. Sep 2021
We loved our stay at the Tahoe Bear Den! Everything is beautifully updated with thoughtful touches throughout the home. The beds were extremely comfortable, which we appreciated after long days exploring. Easy check-in/ check-out. Great spot for a group or (like us) a remote work retreat.

We loved our stay at the Tahoe Bear Den! Everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed. The beds were all very comfortable and we loved the added touch of the heated floors in the bathrooms. The hot tub was great to relax in. We also enjoyed the fire table out back at night. We will definitely stay here again.

Lots of a room, plenty of activities for the kids, lots of nearby outdoor activities. Home was clean and the checkin process was seamless.

The house layout was ideal for our 8 people two family stay. It was very nice to have easy access to the backyard “playground”
to sled and play in. I appreciated the Updated appliances and all the utensils you need to stay in for every meal. Really enjoyed having a big loft area for the kids to watch TV and do activities in. Lastly, the home was comfortable and had central heating which made such a difference after coming back from the snow.

honestly there are no good enough words to say about this gorgeous home. love how spacious the rooms are along with the whole house. tons of sledding in the backyard and the hot tub was the perfect addition. if you’re looking to book this home, DO IT. you will not be disappointed. it felt so nice to live in my dream home, even if it was only for a couple of days. the hosts of the house were so kind, and they did a fantastic job decorating the house. i will definitely be coming back!!
