About this listing

Guests looking for an authentic Tahoe experience should look no further than this Heavenly Valley 3 bed/ 2 bath chalet.


The space

The Knotty Bear offers European style with alpine adventure and luxury. Nestled in exclusive Tahoe Tyrol, the lake and vibrant downtown are within a mile and Heavenly’s California base lodge is a ½ mile away, making this the perfect base to enjoy all of Lake Tahoe’s summer and winter fun.

Guests will relish soaking in the outdoor spa, relaxing in the indoor, cedar-lined sauna or cozying up in the conversation pit centered around a wood-burning fireplace to swap stories and recap the day. During the summer, stroll to the heated community pool & Jacuzzi and take in views of the lake and surrounding mountains. This is spectacular at sunset.

The spacious kitchen is stocked with everything you’ll need to prepare lovely meals or use the Weber Grill located on the rear deck to grill your favorite meats and vegetables. Dine where-ever you like - the dining room has a fabulous rustic wooden table that seats 8, the living room and/or fireplace pit both provide a great setting for casual meals, or head outside to the rear deck to enjoy the forest and have your feast.

For sleeping, you’ll find extremely comfortable queen beds in the master and guest bedrooms along with dual bunk beds in the 3rd bedroom. Cable TV, high speed Wifi, a large stuffed bear, and games are provided for all to enjoy.

Everything was excellent between the location, the house itself and the communication with the host. Great location close to everything but yet quiet. Perfect for what we wanted.

The host was accommodating when it came to an early check in. The home was well furnished and larger than pictures really show as its very open with lofted areas. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and we loved getting to see a bear just down the road. The only slight cons on this house was the temperature was a little difficult to maintain, the AC control either didn't work or we couldn't figure out how to adjust. Cleanliness of the home was okay, but not great. It looked like the house could use a good vacuuming, and some things were in disrepair like a busted up screen that was left on the patio and ripped up carpeting in areas. Overall, it was still a great experience staying here.

Pros- Overall the layout of the house was nice and suited our needs. Matt at Paramount VR was great, he was quick to respond to our needs. Awesome location I would stay here again. Cons - house needs some updating and better upkeep. Light bulbs needed to be replaced, pool cues are missing tips, and 2 tvs didn't have cable. When we arrived for check in at 4pm the cleaning ladies were still there so we weren't able to check in on time. When we went back an hour later to check in, the house still needed more cleaning we had to call the cleaning lady back. When I asked for a discount on the cleaning fee since the house wasn't clean when we arrived and needed more cleaning they told me it couldn't be done.
