About the property

Chalet, 6 Bedrooms (9 when renting guest and caretakers unit) (Sleeps 2-22)

This is a one of a kind gem situated on the Stagecoach run in Heavenly Valley. It is only single family ski in/ ski out, in Tahoe Village!. Heavenly Valley is the largest ski resort in North America. Stagecoach (intermediate run) is the best access point to Double diamond runs such as Mott's, Milkyway, North Bowl and many others.

Others advertise Ski in/Ski out, but no others are closer than we are. Our front door is 25' from the run. Truly an incredible location for those diehard mountain enthusiasts! We purchased the Lodge in August of 2010 and have remodeled and refurnished. We handle all bookings, as well as arrivals and departures ourselves and will strive to make your stay 100% enjoyable and look forward to your return trips.

The Lodge has wonderful views of the lift, Carson Valley and of course the mountain and ski areas. Since we are located on the main lift, the roads are kept clear and typically do not present any problems.

The detached 2 car garage has board racks and space for all the ski gear as well. It is very convenient to just step off of the run and change in the garage leaving all of your gear there for the next day

The Lodge itself is 3 levels and has beam ceilings, oak floors, rock walls, 2 gas fireplace stoves, a great room encompassing the kitchen, living room and formal dining table that comfortably seats 16.

A spacious enclosed sunroom featuring incredible views and comfortable massaging recliners. The family room has cedar lined walls a wonderful Brunswick pool table, large screen TV, a 20' long cedar bar that has a sink, ice maker and refer.

The bedrooms all have views and are nicely furnished for your comfort.

'Bluego' the local shuttle service runs from early morning until 11:00 pm and will pick you up in front of the house and take you to the casinos, restaurants and shopping. It costs app. $2.00 for the trip. Hardly worth warming up the car.

Bedroom configuration as follows:

2 master suites with king beds on 3rd level. Sleeps 4

2 bedrooms on 2nd level with queen beds. Sleeps 4

1 bedroom on 1st level with bunk beds x 3. Sleeps 6

1 bedroom on 1st level with queen bed. Sleeps 2

1st level bedrooms share a bathroom through one of the bedrooms.

2 bedroom, kitchen, bath detached unit over garage sleeps additional 4 if required for additional fee of $150.00 per night (see vrbo #316731).

Caretakers apartment under house is also available at times and is often occupied by a part time occupant. It has a queen bed, full kitchen and bath. (add $145.00 per night)

We appreciate your having looked at our site and hope to be of service to you.

wonderful space to host a family gathering! as communal and as compartmental as you make it!

  • 5 of 5

Robert and his staff were extremely attentive to our needs and inquiries (not that we needed that much). The one question we had (which turned out to be an oversight on our part) was resolved within 10 minutes by a quick site visit by his staff. The place was spotless, spacious, and comfortable. the garage parking was convenient, and the location is close to the main strip and golf courses without being in the chaos of the retail/nightlife district. I rented 3 large houses in the area for my family this weekend for my wife's 40th birthday, and this one will be my first pick when i return with family in the future. Thanks for a great vacation!

Great house! Lots of amenities and great for a reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The house was fully equipped and perfect for our reunion. We had great communication from the owners/manager. I especially love the great big table in the kitchen capable of seating a crowd. It was nice to be able to have the kids stay downstairs with their own gathering space while adults could talk upstairs. Highly recommend!

A Place Fit For A King

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening on the Thursday night of our adventure, the stars were shining as if reflection our anticipation for the weekend. It felt like visiting an amusement park for the first time. Each level had more and more surprises awaiting, finally, you arrive at the top with a master bedroom that was fit for a king. When we woke in the morning to literally WALK onto the slopes, three bald eagles carrying the American Flag flew over the scene. Our group of 12 enjoyed everything that Lake Tahoe had to offer. Joking aside, this is truly an incredible place and Bob was awesome to work with.

Best Tahoe vacation so far!

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 15 people in the property (3 families with elementary aged children) and could not have enjoyed our stay more. The house is outstandingly well equipped for catering for large groups. The kitchen has everything a keen chef could need and enough flatware etc for large groups eating together. The communal spaces are what really sets the house apart from others that we have stayed in. The children enjoyed having the first floor largely to themselves to play in, whilst the adults could use the sun room and dining room in relative quiet. No longer we're we tripping over stray ski gloves or stepping on pieces of lego... The house has wonderful quirky features, huge open ceilings and vast windows. The bedrooms are very comfortable. The house is immediately across the road from the lower end of the stage coach run, which made returning for lunch and afternoon sledding easy. The owner was very responsive, prompt in returning emails and generous with our request to arrive a little early. We loved staying here and will definitely be booking for next season.

Great location! House fully stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Bear on the Roof house. The location was great with direct access to the Stagecoach lift. House was fully stocked and comfortable for our group of 11 adults. Would not hesitate to book again if we go back to Tahoe!
