Photos and Description of the Lake Forest vacation cabin rental

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

** NOTE: Our holiday and winter calendar will open up on November 1st. Please check back for availability then. Thank you.

The Bear Lodge is a beautiful, updated home with lake views located in the private Dollar Point development. Tastefully decorated with a bear theme throughout, this wonderful 4 bedroom and 2 bath cabin was first remodeled in 2009, and again in Fall of 2014. This home is one level--no stairs--and features an open floor plan that is perfect for families with young kids and/or elderly parents. The Bear Lodge has everything guests need for a comfortable and relaxing vacation.

Upon entering the great room, guests will immediately notice the soaring cathedral ceiling and the expansive rock wall that is the quintessential Tahoe cabin. Watch a football game or movie on the new Samsung 60" LED HDTV, or just sit and relax around the floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace, perfect for those chilly winter nights. Right outside the great room, enjoy lake views on the large, wrap-around deck with a teak picnic table and 2 teak chaise lounge chairs.

All bedrooms are equipped with down comforters for the winter and lighter, quilt blankets for the summer. The master bedrooms has a queen size bed with attached bathroom. Second bedroom, also with a queen size bed, is across the hall from the third bedroom, which has 2 sets of bunk beds, ideal setup for families with young children. The fourth bedroom is currently being used as the TV room/game room, and has a double bed sleeper sofa.

The kitchen has high-end stainless steel appliances and custom cabinets with granite counter tops and is fully equipped with pots, pans, plates, cups, glasses, and silverware – perfect for entertaining at the large dining table with family & friends. The laundry room, right off the kitchen, has new washer and dryer. Two bathrooms have tiled floors, custom cabinets, and nice fixtures. The cabin is equipped with WIFI for those who are able to resist the beautiful surroundings outside.

The backyard has teak patio set with a chimineas for those chilly nights. Soak your troubles away in the bubbling hot tub overlooking the lake. Side yard is slightly sloped and is perfect for building a toboggan run in the winter time. My kids have spent countless hours sliding down the toboggan run. Shovel and sleds are available in the garage.

The house is within walking distance to the clubhouse (pool, tennis, bocce court, table tennis, internet access, etc.) and the Dollar Point private beach where families can enjoy crawdad fishing and other water activities. Great central location; 2 miles from Tahoe City's restaurants and shopping. For more information on Dollar Point, see:

We love our cabin and take great pride in keeping it updated, nice, and clean. Our cleaner, whom we trust and love dearly, has worked for us for the past 8 years, and takes as much pride as we do in making sure the house is comfortable and clean for our guests. We are looking for guests who will treat the house as if it were their own. If you are looking for a party house, this is not the house for you.

Our cabin is located in the beautiful Dollar Point community and is within walking distance (.3 miles) to the clubhouse where it is the hubbub of activities in the summer. Families can enjoy a lap pool with diving board, tennis courts, bocce court, shuffleboard, table tennis, internet access, etc. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy the large pool deck area with abundant patio furniture, or just lounge and soak up the sun on the chaise lounge. There are lifeguards on duty, swim/tennis instructors for private and group lessons, and babysitters lists available at the pool.

The cabin is about .5 miles away from the Dollar Point private beach where families can enjoy crawdad fishing, BBQ, beach volleyball, and water activities. My kids have spent countless hours crawdad fishing on the pier (with some strings, 1 inch drain washers, and some bacon), building sand castles and collecting shells on the beach, and swimming in the lake.

There are many activities outside of Dollar Point. Summer activities include:

• Explore hundreds of bike paths, one of which is right outside Dollar Point.
