About Dan and Heidi Thomas

Heidi enjoys snowshoeing near chalet at Lake Tahoe.

Dan and Heidi Thomas purchased this chalet in 1995

Why Dan and Heidi Thomas chose South Lake Tahoe

After vacationing in beautiful Lake Tahoe for 15 years, we decided that Tahoe was always going to be a special place for our family to enjoy for years to come. We started by staying in hotels, then purchased a timeshare that we used throughout the year. Finally, we decided to find a home in a quiet, forested neighborhood, away from city noise, but close enough to enjoy the great Lake Tahoe ammenities: water, casinos, and skiing, without having to drive very far. Montgomery Estates was the answer, and we have loved vacationing here ever since. Check it out, and you'll see why this is such a special place in Lake Tahoe!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home worked out great for our stay in the Tahoe area, close enough to everything to be convenient, but away from the masses in town. What a beautiful area!

Excellent Property and Owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in February 2017 (6 adults and 2 toddlers). The property is amazing for playing in the snow. There is a large open area to the back and side of the house. The interior is nicely updated but still retains a cozy cabin feel. What really stands out for us is the great communication from the owner. The owner truly cares that you have everything you need and that your stay meets and exceeds your expectations. Highly recommended.

All Around Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house worked wonderfully for a family(s) with children. It was very cozy with 3 bedrooms, a loft, and 2 full and updated bathrooms. There was an easily accessible hill in the back which allowed for great family snow play. Not only was the place awesome but so were Dan and Heidi. Although I have never met them, they were very kind and responsive to any inquiries I had. I would definitely bring my family back to this vacation home!

Cute and cozy cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! We and another family have young children so this home was perfect for our needs. The kitchen had pots, pans, some ingredients, enough for us to cook everyday. If you have babies, there's no bathtub but the heated tiled bathrooms made up for this. Nice and warm. So bring a little portable tub if you need to bathe infants. We also never left the cabin because the backyard was so large and there's a trail leading to the forrest nearby. We made snowmen, had snow fights and also shoveled a path for our kids in the backyard slopes to go sledding and

everyone had a blast. Heavenly ski resort is very close for those who want to go skiing. Will definitely rent this lovely home again. Thank you Dan and Heidi.

Fantastic mountain house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a great location. We stayed for a weekend and weathered the big storm here - 6+ feet of snow on the ground, and another 3' fell over the weekend while we were there.

Garage parking was available which was a life-saver, and the driveway was cleared both days.

Owner's Response: We were so glad to have you stay at our home. It's nice to know the snow plow service that we provide to keep the driveway clear worked out well for you. It is our desire for our guests to be on vacation and not shoveling snow! We look forward to having you and your family return!

This was the perfect house for our family (3 boys age 5 and under) for our first trip to the snow.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house is perfect- in the woods and in the quiet, but a ten minute drive on well-maintained roads to Lake Tahoe Blvd. Wespent a long weekend here with our three little boys and we all had a blast. It was great having a well set up kitchen and large table to have family meals just like when we're at home. Bedrooms were comfortable and cozy. Wood burning fireplace was perfect for the cozy evenings with snow outside our window.

Our favorite part of the house, though, was the sledding hill in the backyard. It was so wonderful being able to play in the snow (sledding, snowshoeing, and building our first snowman) without having to get in the car. Our boys loved being able to get dressed and just walk out the door.

Dan and Heidi are great owners, too. When we arrived Friday night, we had trouble getting the lockbox (that holds the key) to open. A quick phone call to Dan solved our problem and helped get us into the house to start enjoying our vacation.

We hope to return later this winter and definitely this summer!
