About the property

This family friendly Tahoe Tyrol Chalet is located in a private Community adjacent to Heavenly Valley Ski Resort and approx. one-mile to Stateline, Nevada. The Community includes a private swimming pool, spa and sauna (pool seasonal, spa & sauna are year-round). In May 2016 we replaced all of our windows with sound proof, dual pane windows and you will be happy with the finished product! The Chalet has been remodeled with new stainless steel appliances and a stackable front-loading washer/dryer. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, silverware, pot and pans, small appliances, etc. All three bedrooms spacious and themed with bear, moose and deer (the three bedrooms and sleeper sofa in living room sleep from 6 to 8 adults), the Kids loft with one full-size bunk bed, one twin bed and one full-size futon sleep (4 to 6 children) or 4 adults with air hockey table, flat screen television and WII-U. A focal point of the dining area is our five-foot high carved bear. All lighting has been updated and the gas-fireplace with remote and conversation pit is great for kicking back and relaxing. The family room offers two sofas and a large flat screen television upgraded to 55 inch 4K in 2017 with a VCR along with flat screen televisions in all bedrooms. Large outside deck features a bbq, picnic table, kids picnic table. Enjoy breathtaking filtered views of beautiful Lake Tahoe!

About Bob and Debbie Kossick

My husband and I grew up in the Bay Area, but always dreamed of moving closer to Lake Tahoe. We relocated to El Dorado Hills, CA and took numerous family vacations to South Lake Tahoe dreaming of purchasing a Chalet in Tahoe Tyrol--a Private Community at the base of Heavenly Valley. Our dream came true in 2004 when we purchased our Chalet and began to remodel it from the 1970's decor to a mountain-themed dream home. We hope you will enjoy our chalet as much as we do--it is our pride and joy!

Bob and Debbie Kossick purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Bob and Debbie Kossick chose Tahoe Tyrol

Tahoe Tyrol is a unique private community in South Lake Tahoe, CA. These beautiful homes are clustered together with hand-painted designs which make you feel like you are in a Bavarian Village! You won't believe your eyes when you drive through the community--it is truly one-of-a-kind!!! Our three large bedrooms, Kid's Loft with flat screen television and WII-U, large deck with adult and kid's picnic tables and BBQ along with the nearby seasonal pool and year-round spa and sauna make it the perfect family or multi-family retreat!

What makes this chalet unique

While staying in our Chalet, we hope you feel right at home. It is very cozy, has a conversation pit/gas fireplace area, three large bedrooms with bear, moose and white-tail deer themes and other mountain decor throughout along with the sleeper sofa in family room it can sleep from 6 to 8 adults. The kids loft sleeps up to 6 children or 4 adults and features an air hockey table and a flat screen television with WII-U. A private balcony off the master bedroom and kids loft offers a quiet sitting area with adirondack chairs. The rear deck has a large gas bbq, adult and kid's picnic tables. Televisions in the family room (upgraded to 55" 4K in 2017), in all bedrooms, and kids loft make it feel just like home!!! Finally, the Chalet is ideal for grandparents or older guests as there are only two steps from the carport into the house and there is a master bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. Even though you feel like you are in the middle of the forest, our Black Bear Chalet is close to everything Tahoe. Heavenly Ski Resort, Stateline Nevada with Casinos, restaurants, movie theaters, grocery stores, shopping, hiking, mountain biking, THE LAKE (boating, water skiing, parasailing, swimming, a variety of beaches, picnic areas, etc), minature golf, bowling, ice skating, historic sites, and the list goes on. If you have never been to Lake Tahoe or have been there many times, it will never cease to amaze you!!! Replaced all windows with double-pane, sound proof in 2016 and unlimited hot water heater in 2017.

Our family and friends really enjoyed staying here!

  • 5 of 5

The kids really enjoyed the little animal friends hiding all around the house, and we played our share of board games. The house was a great place for us to stay, really comfortable, clean, felt like a "home away from home."

Fabulous getaway for families wanting to vacation together

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Black Bear Chalet. It's close to Heavenly parking and to town. There is plenty of room for two large families to spend a few days together. We had some 18-22-year olds, and when they weren't out skiing or shopping, they were playing games in the sunken area around the gas-flame fireplace, card games at the dining room table, or "Jackbox.tv" games with the beautiful new 4K television.

Bob & Debbie were very easy to work with for making arrangements and answering questions. You get direct contact with the owners...not an intermediate management company.

During our stay we had an unprecedented event of rain plus warming that caused snow runoff sufficient to cause some standing water underneath the house, which put out the water heater flame. Bob & Debbie sent a plumber and within a few hours they had pumped out all the water and gotten hot water going again.

We've been taking a trip to Tahoe the 2nd week of February for nearly 30 years in a row, and we will definitely keep the Black Bear Chalet on the top of our list for next year!

This Cabin was perfect for our family winter getaway! The cabin was roomy, cozy, clean and the communication between the owners was amazing. They had answered any question I had properly. I would highly recommend the Black Bear Chalet. You wont be disappointed. We will definitely be back. Thanks Bob and Debbie!!!

Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

Terrific home. Great location for skiing at Heavenly. Best stocked rental cabin we have used. Debbie was responsive to all questions. Only caution is that the two or three streets closest to the home were quite icy...four wheel drive probably best.
