Bear's Lair

Arnold's Newest Boutique Lodge

Come and cuddle-up in the area’s newest boutique lodge. Bear's Lair is a cozy hide-away featuring 2 private suites. Each one has its own queen size bed, a tub/shower, and a fireplace. Other amenities include your own charming living room, kitchen & bar, many unusual games, and of course WiFi. Relax on the huge covered porch and enjoy being surrounded by the big trees of a private half-acre park.

A one-of-a-kind experience for up to two couples. Easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants. White Pines Lake, the Sierra Nevada Logging Museum and the Arnold Rim Trail are just a mile down the road. Calaveras Big Trees State Park is only 5 minutes away and Bear Valley Ski Resort and Lake Alpine are an additional half hour up the hill.

Bear's Lair is the lodging arm of the Ebbetts Pass Visitors Center, so we really can "tell you where to go!" From wine tasting and hiking to kayaking and caving, we'll help make your stay in the "Real Sierra" full of fond memories.

  • "Sid and Kate were wonderful hosts and made us feel really welcome. The property was immaculately clean and in perfect condition. With a multitude of games available to play for nights in and a fountain of knowledge of the surrounding area you won't be without things to do. I would recommend this to anyone looking to explore the area or just after a quiet retreat."   Chris W. - London, England

  • “We are so thrilled we found this newly opened boutique inn. The personal touches & details that have been added make this feel "homey" and not at all like a normal hotel stay. This is most definitely our new go-to spot to stay when we're in the area. I'm so happy to spread the word about this gem!” Megan M. – Stockton, CA

  •  "Sid and Kate are great hosts. The place is really nice and it is very close to the park. I really recommend to think about going to Yosemite and stay at their place."   Gustavo L. - New York, NY
  • Our reservation was a last minute decision and I'm glad we did it. It felt like home! Very clean and we loved the decor and all the games. Will definitely come again and recommend it to friends and family. Thanks so much!"  The Kallermans - Lower Lake, CA - 3/30/14
