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!

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!

Nice, cozy and comfortable property

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to spend four nights at this property. It seems to be recently remodeled up to the highest standards and provided very comfortable environment for our family and friends. We have visited this (South Lake Tahoe) location many times before but enjoyed our stay the most probably at this property.

We also truly appreciated dynamic communication with the property owners about multiple aspects of our stay, which was almost instant; and the owners were fully flexible to satisfy our needs.

Cozy house, very close to the slopes!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very cozy and had all of the features we would want (fireplace, full kitchen, plenty of beds, 2 bathrooms). An added bonus was that it was very close to Heavenly. The price was fair as well. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a weekend getaway to Tahoe

Will stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a lovely mountain home nicely appointed and decorated, well maintained, and is in a very quiet, safe, and inviting neighborhood while being only about 6 minutes from Lake Tahoe. It is easy to access anywhere around the lake from here. The house was clean, went beyond my expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would most heartily recommend this house to all who want quiet time away from the hustle and bustle while still being close to the lake. There are 3 full bedrooms and 1 loft, all with beds that will comfortably sleep two each, two lovely bathrooms with custom tile buildup showers, and a two car garage in which to park.

Dan and Heidi provided excellent prompt service. It was truly a joy to stay here. We spent most of our time hiking and only ate out twice. However, from hundreds of previous visits to Lake Tahoe, I can say that the area restaurants are mostly middle of the road and inexpensive. The area and this house is great for families as well as romantic getaways. Come stay here---you won't be disappointed!
