General Information

Bear Villa is located in Montgomery Estates neighborhood which is centered in the National Forest Lands containing miles of hiking and biking trails. Two major creeks flow thru this area; Cold Creek and Trout Creek.  From the master bedroom you will be able to listen to Cold Creek flowing most of the year. (Occasionally in the winter it freezes) You will be able to step right outside the back door into the forest and hike, bike, snowshoe, and even cross-country ski anytime on the private forest access road immediately outside the rear of the home.


The property is ideally located for access to South Lake Tahoe’s three major ski resorts. Heavenly Mountain Resort is a short 10 minute drive (4 miles) from the house, while Sierra at Tahoe is only 30 minutes and Kirkwood is 40 minutes.  State-line and the Casinos are only 5 miles away, so going to dinner at one of South Tahoe’s many restaurants or a night on the town for gambling is very convenient.


Please No smoking or pets are allowed inside the home. Any evidence of either will constitute forfeiture of your entire security deposit.


NOTE: During winter months a 4 wheel drive vehicle is highly recommended when traveling to the home and local area.
