Christmas rentals in the High Sierra

Should there be no vacancy at Black Bear Lodge this holiday season, another mountain hideaway might be available. This one is closer to Kirkwood, however, Heavenly Valley North is just a half hour away should you have a pass that allows you to ski or snowboard both (lucky you!). Here’s the scoop on the super-private Diamond Valley House that has a pond for iceskating (weather permitting) and miles of cross country skiing right out the door. Bonus: Grover Hot Springs mineral pool is just ten minutes away, ready for soaking your tired bones after a long day of having fun in the snow or hiking or biking.

Tahoe Has The BEST Powder


Apres skiing: Come sit by the hearth with a hot cup of cocoa. Our place is cozy and Heavenly Ski Resort and Kirkwood are just minutes away. Great idea: snowshoe right out the back door in our big open meadow. A great place to build a snowman or sled with the kids.

Take Advantage of Tahoe’s Off-Season Rates

Off-season is a “best kept” secret up here in South Tahoe. The snow has melted at lake level, it’s quiet, sunny and rates at the Black Bear Lodge Tahoe are at their lowest. If you’re not into crowds and looking for a unique High Sierra getaway, this is it. Call 530-388-5253 for more info.
