About Debbie & Dan
A retired UCLA trained dentist now living in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Spent many years in the Bay Area and this was our family cabin when my sons were growing up. We now have wonderful liasons living and working in Lake Tahoe that help us maintain our cabin for our many guests.
Debbie & Dan purchased this House in 1990
Why Debbie & Dan chose Homewood
Lake Tahoe can be SO busy any time of year, but the West Shore is the prettiest and quietest. We enjoyed parking the car during visits and not using it again until it was time to go back home. The open space behind the house and quiet street were a stark contrast to our home in Ross and the hiking is awesome. This part of Homewood/Chamberlands neighborhood only has two roads above West Lake Boulevard, which allows easy access by bike, and creates a quiet neighborhood with few cars so the boys could play in front or back. The lake is quite close by and we would have a much better view of it if there weren't so many beautiful conifers growing all around us! Truly feels like the woods! The early nineties were drought years and Tahoe had very little snow. Being on the 'shady' side of the lake, the little snow that there was would last much longer than anywhere else...making for snow play all winter! Lake Tahoe's shoreline is primarily private, so we wanted a home that also had access to a beach. Chamberlands is one of the nicest clubs in Tahoe with sandy beaches and all its facilities together at the lake. What a wonderful setting!
What makes this House unique
More wonderful family memories at a fun cabin in the woods with wildlife and recreation all around us. The game room was always the boys domain and the separate kitchen/living area always seemed to be the adults' hangout. The three levels gives everyone a bit of space and privacy when desired. The hot tub on the back deck is in a wonderful forest setting, and although we have neighbors to the north and south, the situation of our home slightly to the west gave us total privacy there.

Beautiful Cabin w/ Great Amenities!
We had a great stay in Homewood. The house was well-stocked and in a great location. We hope to return one day soon.
Another great stay at Bear Haven!
This is our second time at Bear Haven and we will be back!!
Excellent for a group with three floors and lots of room for privacy if you want it. The game room is fantastic and our kids pretty much lived down there while at the house. The house is in a great location - close to everything, and in a quiet neighborhood. Our kids had a great time sledding and playing in the snow right outside the house. The owners are extremely responsive and accommodating. Highly recommend!!!
Terrific Home for Gathering
We had our family reunion here and it was a perfect property to do so. The three floors afforded enough space so no one ever felt they were stepping over each other.
The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen really is stocked well with good utensils, sharp knives, cutting boards, plenty of dishware and good quality pots and pans. We are a family of cooks and were all pleased with the set up.
Jacuzzi was a big bonus after a day in the snow! Pool table, though worn was well used by all of our pool sharks in the family. Other than the family dining room, the game room was where we spent most of our time.
The owners were very responsive to questions I had. They’ve created a very welcoming property for vacationers and my family will certainly be back!
Exceeded our Expectations
The home is larger than the photos show & provided ample space (about 3000 sq ft) for our family of 8. We loved having the game room with stove which heated the area nicely. The spa worked perfectly. There are more than enough dishes & towels so frequent washing wasn't necessary. The location is perfect for skiing Homewood & my family took the advantage of skiing 3 days. The rental facility & lodge are both within walking distance. The roads were maintained & we were able to park our vehicles safely off the road. 4-wheel drive was needed to climb the somewhat steep driveway.
My only suggestion would be to bring your own pillows. The stairs are somewhat steep so use the handrails. We had a couple of "slips" but no falls. The garbage disposal was not working. We informed Debbie too late in our stay or I think it would have been repaired as she immediately responded to our concern.
We will definitely consider staying again!!
