* Our property was flooded in the winter of 2017 from a neighbors broken pipes. We had Service Master remove the water, and all drywall and wood paneling that was wet. All carpeted flooring on this ground level was also removed and replaced. The area is clean and dry, just has missing drywall and paneling while we fight the insurance company for our claim. We have had several families stay with us, and no one has had a problem with this area. Only the ground floor was effected. Not any other part of the house.

** We have 5 outdoor security cameras giving us a full surround house view. We have this only for security reasons. If the neighbors have complaints about our renters, we will contact you and may look on the cameras to see what is going on. Also, there is one indoor camera looking at the front door. We have had one break in, since we are only at this house part time. We are 45 minutes away, and use this camera to see if we need to dispatch the police department. Under no circumstances is any person to remove, change the view or cover these security cameras.

About Tracy Murphy

We were both born and raised in Reno, Nevada. We work and live in Reno, with our 2 teenage boys, 4 dogs, and 2 cats. Growing up, family outings were usually up to Lake Tahoe. Fond memories of the beach, the cool water, the beautiful surroundings, playing for hours in the sun to go home after dark, Tahoe has always been a dream. Vacationing in the summer of 2002, and staying at the Zephyr Cove Cabins, we were walking thru this neighborhood, and found this home for sale. We inquiried, and timing must have been right, we ended up purchasing this cabin. We wanted our kids to have the best memories growing up with Tahoe in their backyard. The families in this cove, are long time residents, or extended family, or people that grew up around Tahoe as well. We have 2 different families with homes in Zephyr Cove, that are close friends from Reno. What more could you ask for?

Tracy Murphy purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Tracy Murphy chose Zephyr Cove

Zephyr Cove is a private small community, but is located next to the public beach, the MS Dixie, The Zephyr Cove Lodge Restaurant. We have the best of both worlds. Our neighborhood is quiet, mostly, with our private beach, buoy field and pier, and yet steps away from the fun public beach and restaurant.

We love to walk the public beach to the sunset bar, grab a drink and walk back. Of course, the kids, love to see what is going on, on the public side as well.

Private buoy field for the boat, makes it all too easy.

What makes this cabin unique

We can cook at home, or walk down the street and get a great meal. The Dixie is fun for out of town guests. Our private beach, pier, and buoy field make the lake so accessible. We are literally minutes from great entertainment at South Shore, and fabulous dining. Winter time...,minutes from world class skiing at Heavenly Resort. We have filtered views of the lake, a wonderful deck for entertaining, and room for friends.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Mark & Kevin,

I just wanted to say thank you for helping us out with this rental. The house was perfect for our needs and we had a great time. We would definitely be interested in renting this house again in the future. We would love to come up in the summer some time and be able to enjoy that great back yard and deck.

I don’t think there is a lot you need to do to make it better as it already seemed to have everything we needed. We changed a couple of light bulbs that burnt out from the supplies in the laundry room. We had everything we needed kitchen wise. The only thing that was a little awkward is that the fridge was half full when we got there so there wasn’t a lot of room for our groceries. We kept using the wash machine after my sister-in-law talked to you and the noise started to go away.

One last thing – is it possible to ask the owners what type of mattress they had in the upstairs master bedroom (the king bed). My mom actually needs to get a new mattress and she said the bed was very comfortable. She was going to check the mattress but forgot to do it before we left. All of the beds were very comfortable which is something I don’t always see in a rental.

Thanks again for everything. Please let us know if there were any issues upon our checkout. We tried to make sure that everything was back in its place and all the towels were cleaned and folded.

Happy New Year.

The Bear Den

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I and our two Australian Shepherds spent a wonderful 11 days at the bear den. The house was very clean and fully equipped. The house was larger than we anticipated so was more than we really needed, but was the "Perfect Vacation Home" Thanks, Tracy.

Nice home, nice location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for 5 nights for an early summer vacation, wanted a place with easy beach access. The Bear Den was perfect. The home was very comfortable and felt like a home and not a rental. It was very clean and well maintained. The space is nicely set up for a group with 3 floors and 2 large family rooms/dens so it was easy to be together but also ability for privacy. The beds were very comfortable. The deck and backyard were very nice as well with comfy furniture, shady umbrellas, and fire pit with skewers for s'mores (my daughter's favorite part). The private beach was amazing and it was a quick walk up the beach to the resort area with all the equipment rentals. The owners and property manager were very quick and responsive to questions, calls etc and the logistics of rental were easy.

I hope to return!

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I rented this house for my 30th birthday. We ALL had an amazing time. The location is perfect- the cove makes it seem so private & secluded without having to be too far away from anything. We walked right down to the lake (2min walk) & had a snow ball fight. There is also a little sledding hill close that my nephew loved all day long. I must say the pictures do not do justice to how beautiful this home is. So much better then I expected & extremely pleased. They had everything with needed, the beds were extremely comfy, new TV's, carpet, etc. The owners were amazing also- responded very quickly & answered all questions I had. Thank you for sharing your home! We plan on another trip this summer!

Awesome Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days at this amazing house in Zephyr Cove with a group of couples.

The house itself was awesome! So much room to spread out and every couple had their own room and almost their own floor. We had 8 people, and the house could definitely fit quite a bit more. Much bigger than the pictures make it seem :)

Backyard was beautiful and spent some much needed time in the Jacuzzi after skiing all day on the mountains.

Everyone was so helpful and great throughout. When I couldn't figure out how to get the jacuzzi to work, I gave Traci a call and got the jacuzzi working within a couple minutes.

Would recommend this house in a heartbeat to anyone who wants close access to the lake and heavenly village, but far enough away so you can have peace and quiet.

Thanks again for the amazing time!

25th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We vacation in the same neighborhood every year and love the area. This year we decided to stay at the Bear Den property because we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted to stay at a truly beautiful place that had something for everyone. Starting with the house itself: lots of room to spread out, decorated to create a very warm relaxing feeling, the kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The beds were comfortable. The backyard was amazing. After spending the day at the lake it was perfect to sit outside on the back deck to enjoy playing cards, sitting in the hot tub and making s'mores while sitting around the fire pit. Of course breakfast and dinner were enjoyed outside on the large picnic table. Afternoon naps were taken out on the patio on the large comfy couch. Once parked, you really do not need to get back in your car. The lake and Zephyr Cove Resort are both a couple of minutes walk from the house.

A Real Gem !!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for anyone that wants close beach access. We walked down every day with our beach stuff in a wagon. Super convenient. The house is very nice. We were a multi generational group and layout is really great for that. Very comfortable furniture inside and out. Backyard is beautiful, fenced in yard is nice with little ones. Huge dining table outside. Perfect for a large family. We ate out there every night. Beds are great too.....we hope to go again next year.
