Come enjoy the mountains and lake. With Homewood Mountain Resort behind the house, ski into the cabin for lunch or the end of the day (depending on snow conditions).
Bear Haven is the perfect cabin for year- round indoor and outdoor fun. Located near the south base of Homewood ski area, Lagoon Road is family friendly, close to the bike path and backs up to forest! In summer enjoy our full membership of Chamber's Pool, Beach and Tennis Club. In winter, walk down the road to ski and back to the house through the woods for lunch or at the end of the day! Our rustic getaway backs up to open space, hike, mountain bike, snowshoe or x-country ski from the house depending on the season!
Three level A-frame cabin with a remodeled kitchen: New cabinets, double oven, counters, refrigerator and dishwasher!! We have also added a gas cook top and pantry. New double vanity in the master bath. Always trying to make improvements to the house so our guests will have an enjoyable stay.
Great house for any season! BEAR HAVEN is the perfect home to gather family and friends for your year-round fun and wildlife viewing. Play ping-pong or pool in the large Game Room (complete with plumbed bar and entertainment area) and soak in your own professionally serviced hot tub without leaving the house! A fantastic location in the Chamberlands area of Homewood means we have skiing at the end of the road at Homewood Mountain Resort in Winter, a private beach/pool/tennis on the Lake in Summer. Open space trails extend behind our rustic three level A-frame, which is also close to the west shore bike path.The house is 3 levels: 1st floor has mud room, game room, master (king bed), full bath and laundry room.The 2nd floor has open living room/kitchen, bedroom (queen and twin), 3/4 bath, large front deck and back deck with new spa and 5 burner gas grill BBQ. 3rd floor has two bedrooms (queen and full beds in front; queen and twin beds in back) These share a 1/2 bath and each has a small deck.
Spring and fall are the best in Tahoe, crowds are gone and wildlife abounds. Park your car and bike or hike in the woods right out the back yard or down the bike path. Our families build natural forts right out the back! Walk or bike to the General Store/Deli in Homewood or along the bike path to the beach and Tahoma amenities. Very quiet and peaceful.
Relax in the private hot tub or by one of the warm wood fireplaces!

Guests to the west shore are often confused about the summer amenities here: The amenities are actually two memberships, one to the Chamberlands Beach and Mountain Club which maintains the two private beaches with roped swim areas, lifeguards, paddle boats and summer day and evening family activities. The second is the Chamberlands Recreation Club which includes and maintains entrance to the private heated pool with lifeguards, lounges and private restrooms. The private pool and beaches are integrated into a public pier, bar and restaurant right on the lake. Free Family Movie Nights Wednesdays at the Beach early July to early August : Bring chairs, blankets, cooler, flashlight and container for trash. Free popcorn!
The origin of these clubs can be confusing. Upon developing the Chamberlands condominiums about 35 years years ago, the adjacent homes in Chamberslands I and II were offered a chance to purchase a membership in one or both clubs. The opportunity for the pool/tennis club was once in a lifetime and is linked to the specific home's title. At this time, most homes in Chamberlands maintain a membership in the Beach and Mountain Club, while only a portion of homes have access to the pool and tennis facilities with a hefty yearly fee. We have both. This part of the lake also has a public portion of beach available to other homes in the area (ex:Tahoma, McKinney, Homewood) which is on the southern edge of this sandy beach area of Lake Tahoe.
WINTER: Enjoy a 3-day weekend, Our guests love to ski at uncrowded Homewood Mountain Resort (walk or ski down Lagoon Road); then ski into the backyard for intermediate skiers, depending of course on snow conditions. The ski area has lots of promotions for lift tickets, check their website skihomewood .
