Nice, but a few minor gripes....
We found "Bear's Lair" to be quite nice with a few minor complaints. There was no sponge or dish cloth for washing dishes. There were no instructions for the television and there were three remotes. We did finally get it worked out. We would also have liked a screen door on the side door for cross ventilation. Lastly, we paid what we felt was a large cleaning fee only to find notes telling us to start the laundry, pull the sheets, and take out the trash. Like I said above, all minor complaints. The place was clean and had what we needed for a nice visit. I would do it again. Hey, I got to see two bears trying to get into the trash bin!!

Convenient, but not as advertised
TurnKey makes a big deal about being available 24/7, but in fact they are not. When you call you get a machine and then a person who apparently doesn't even live nearby who says someone will call you back. I called and texted and never once got a call back in the 3 nights I was there. I finally did get some texts. The problem was that they advertised a hot tub. It even had the hours of the hot tub on the inside door of the rental. We couldn't find one in the complex so I called TurnKey, who eventually texted me that there was no hot tub. They even texted me about the hours of the hot tub while I was there! Also the cleaners forgot to take some dirty towels off the rack in the master bedroom. Also the pictures of the outside of the rental are deceiving. It is not a single unit, but attached to another unit. Luckily our shared wall neighbors were quiet. We did love the location as we were close to hiking areas. The rental was clean and had what we needed to cook. But it irked me that they gave false info about the hot tub and their responsiveness took 3 days when we asked about it. That's not 24/7 availability. Also, beware, there is no air conditioning.

Great, extended stay
My wife and I stayed in the Bear's Lair for six weeks with another couple for a work trip. This was a comfortable home for our stay. Our friends had the master bedroom and bathroom, and we were staying in the second room, using the second full bathroom in the home. There is plenty of comfortable seating for evenings in, and the location is great for when we wanted to go out. Very centrally located. The kitchen was fully stocked, and the laundry machines worked great! I would highly suggest this as a rental option for your next trip to South Lake Tahoe.

Great location and cabin! Would recommend!
This little condo was in a really cute neighborhood with a meadow behind it.. was great for playing in the snow! They also had sleds and children's snow gear for you to borrow. So much fun!

Great location and property!
This place was great.. minus the popcorn they missed under the couch. Great living room and master. Has two heaters to keep you toasty and a great meadow in back of units to have snow ball fights! I can't wait to come again!

Cozy getaway
Everything we needed was there for us to enjoy over the Thanksgiving weekend. This is a cute place. The property management company was easy to work with. I did call to confirm based on another reviewers recommendation, I recommend doing the same because I missed a step. Very nice and helpful over the phone.

Tahoe Vacation
I rented the Bear's Lair in South Lake Tahoe in the beginning of August. The moment I walked into my rental I was amazed on how clean and well organized the place was. It was exactly as advertised online. The home was beautifully decorated. It felt as if I was right at home. The location of the home was perfect as well! It was less than 4 miles from the Gondolas. The neighbors were friendly. The home was just perfect, I can't say that enough. The only complaint I had was that the home had an odd smell to it, but all I had to do was open all the windows and doors so the smell could go out. Besides that I absolutely feel in love with the rental home. Next time I am in South Lake Tahoe I will have to rent this beautiful home once again.

Bear's Lair Posr July 4th
Booked on short notice and very happy with this place. Everything is as advertised in the description, no surprises. We stayed for 4 nights, great location and quiet little community. We traveled a lot each day so good location BUT S. Lake Tahoe was very crowded with lots of road work in the area, just had to plan accordingly. Would definitely stay there again.

Great little cabin
Cute functional cabin in a nice quiet location only a few mins drive from shores of Lake Tahoe. Spotlessly clean and well equipped for a family stay. Excellent value for money and would definitely stay here again!

Great getaway for a family with teens
My family of 5 enjoyed our short stay here. The house was cozy and had all the amenities we needed. One of the cons to this place would have to be the extremely uncomfortable bed in the master bedroom. The mattresses sits on what appears to be an old water bed frame, without a box spring. The frame sits higher than the mattress making getting in and out of the bed hard and painfull. We ended up sleeping in the other bed, and one of our kids slept in the living room. It is located in a quite location with stores nearby to stock up on grocery essentials. The carpet appears to be clean but after walking around the house in white socks, we realized the carpet could use a good cleaning. The meadow behind the subdivision looks like a great place to let the kids run around when the weather is warmer. Turnkey staff was excellent.

Great Place for Weekend Ski Trip
The place was exactly what we needed. Cozy, comfortable, and close to everything in town! I literally think the drive to the resort is less than 10 minutes which is fantastic. Definitely recommend.

A Few Negatives, Otherwise Good
The heater put out heat continuously making the cabin very hot.The sofa bed springs dug into the person trying to sleep. You couldn't depend on having consistent hot water for the bath and shower. Neither grills were useable. They were dirty and their propane safety questionable. The Direct TV didn't work most of the time. Otherwise things were fine.
