Nancy Hawkins purchased this townhome in 2004
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.The community 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!
We have taken extra care to provide the extra amenities that make this a home away from home. This includes WIFI a private hot tub, a gas BBQ on the deck, comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen from Range oven and microwave to blenders, crock pots and spices.

"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.
The home was clean and had all the space we needed. The owner was very helpful and easy to get a hold of. I would definitely recommend this home!
We just returned from an amazing 3-day stay at Snowbear Lodge. The setting is very ideal as it in a prime location, close to Heavenly and the casinos. The living quarters is well laid-out, with lots of windows, letting in a lot of light, and spectacular views of the snow-covered trees which surround the house. We found the living quarters to be very comfortable and spacious. In fact we only used 3 of the bedrooms, as there was just four of us in our family. We especially enjoyed hanging out in the dining area and large modern kitchen, which was fully-stocked with pots, pans and dishes. In fact, it was better equipped that my own kitchen at home, so we decided to cook and dined in most of the time. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and the fireplace in the master bedroom made it extra cozy. The bathrooms are also very modern and clean, with an abundance of bed sheets and towels. Will definitely be booking here again!
We had a really good time on our trip and the house was great for what we were looking for. Family trip with 7 adults. Every one had a bed and access to a bathroom. Pictures are very accurate (which is not always the case). The location is close to every thing (5 minutes to gondola and casinos) and it was nice to be able to keep one of the cars in the garage.
One recommendation for skiers, if possible, go to stage coach in the mornings. Trying to get on the Gondola day one took over an hour, Id much rather be skiing during that time, we learned our lesson quick.
Only possible downside is I could't figure out how to get the fire to work, but I also never called Nancy to ask and she was very responsive to every thing else. I would stay here again
Nancy was an amazing and gracious host! She was readily available to answer any and all questions that we had regarding our stay here. The place is generously stocked with kitchen utensils, & cookware. The only thing you need to provide yourself are the groceries, and foil. The place is spacious yet cozy, and although we had trouble with the fire pit at first, Nancy gave thorough instructions on the correct way to turn it on/off. Sad that the master bedroom fireplace wasn't working but at least the one in the living room was enjoyed by all of us together! I didn't find the stairs to be a big problem. Most houses and properties in Tahoe are on higher elevation anyways, so it wasn't a big deal to us. The place was properly cleaned and maintained when we arrived, barely anything to complain about. Overall, gracious host, & an amazing place, made for one memorable weekend in Tahoe. I definitely recommend this property to anyone and everyone.
Place is great. Had all the essentials for cooking and plenty of linens. Bed are comfortable and well kept. A great place to stay. Nancy provided good service and even called after we arrived to make sure everything was good. Property is clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
