Sitting on the back deck surrounded by the pine forest, you'd never know you were so close to the action in South Lake Tahoe. But, with just about a 10 minute drive, you can be at Heavenly, the lake, or the casinos. When the excitement ends and you're ready for some peace and quiet, Nestled Pines Retreat is the perfect escape. Located in a quiet residential community bordering the national forest, you'll be treated to the kind of tranquility that most of us only dream about. In the summer, you'll love hiking the nearby High Meadow and Cold Creek trails. And after a long day of skiing in the winter, treat yourself to a dip in the hot tub or some indoor fun on the foosball or pool table.

We stay for a week and loved the view of the patio. The living room has a good, working gas chimney that kept the living room warm. The main television offers DirecTV, Netflix, among other alternatives that helped make our nights delightful. The sofa is spacious but not very comfortable as it is made of leather and not fabric. Also, the seats separate over time, causing people to dip between sectionals and losing the things in their pockets. Unfortunately it is not as comfortable as the photo seems and the recliner is not fully functional, though like I said it is in fact spacious and can seat many people at once.
The dining table is also spacious and good for family style dinners, but the plastic cover on top of it is overused, bent and wobbly. You can't really place your drinks on sections of the table because of the lop-sided, weathered plastic cover. At one point or another every person in our party spilled a glass or two because of that cover. It should be replaced asap or removed entirely.
The kitchen is spacious with a good amount of pots and pans. It would have been nice to have enough dishwasher detergent to clean the pots, pans, silverware, etc. Also a few kitchen towels.
The master bedroom is large and comfortable as well as all the other 3 rooms. We have no complaints on the rooms as they were all very nice, warm, well lit, and comfortable. The first night it snowed a lot and someone came to clean the driveway the next day in the morning, which was a great relief.
Overall we were very pleased with the location and would strongly consider returning in the event we visited Lake Tahoe again.
We really loved the house. It was warm, spacious, light. We played foos, enjoyed Jacuzzi. We also really liked the table - it could sit 10 people and it was really nice for board games! We liked the fireplace, even though it was not wood but gas one. Had very great time and thank you!!!
Carpets were very dirty.
Mold in the downstairs bathroom which I cleaned before use.
I gave a list of needed repairs to the property management company.
The hot tub is very nice.
The kitchen has enough pots and pans and plenty of utensils.
The deck is very nice.
We enjoyed our stay, but the house has heavy wear and tear and needs some attention.
We loved the amenities, decor, kitchen, foosball and location. A perfect spot for a scenic stroll or run. Close enough away from the central Tahoe to enjoy the peacefulness. Quiet neighborhood. Definitely the home we will continue to return to when we stay at South Lake Tahoe.
The house was spacious and beautiful the rooms were clean and the jacuzzi was great. This location is first up on our list if we come back to Tahoe again ... Mahalo all the way from Hawaii Kaili and Randi Kaauwai
-Great location - perfect balance of feeling surrounded by the forest but conveniently close to town.
-Great space - we had a full house but it never felt crowded and the layout was perfect for social gatherings.
-Very comfortable - everyone slept well and generally felt very comfortable in the house. Also well-heated - we were never cold inside even though it was very cold outside.
-Netflix and Amazon Prime are already set up. Also there was a crockpot and we mulled hot apple cider every night! Hot tub and grill worked great!
-Our internet was completely down the first night (they gave us the wrong password0. Many of us depended on the internet for work and didn't have reception on our phones, so it was a major inconvenience. We called concierge when we arrived but they said they wouldn't be able to get in contact with tech support until the morning (that's not exactly 24 hr service as advertised). We understand that technical issues happen, but we were surprised at the lack of urgency at the time and the lack of empathy when we complained after the trip -- they told us internet access "wasn't guaranteed" and refused to offer any compensation.
-The house is generally clean but the carpet was pretty gross. They have signs that ask guests to keep their shoes off while in the house but clearly people haven't followed instructions and the owners aren't doing a good job of keeping it clean.
-Neighboring houses are VERY close together, which was fine, but the description is a bit misleading.
Know Before You Go
-They only provide the bare minimum - one set of bedding and towels/person, a small amount of dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, a couple of trash bags, and a few pantry items. If you have 12 people this will only get you through one night so make sure to plan in some shopping. Giving 12 people only 12 set of towels is a little silly, since we brought them out to the hot tub each night, so we recommend asking for extras.
-Do your food shopping at Grocery Outlet - prices are amazing and they had everything we needed except for liquor (they just sell wine and beer).
-The neighborhood doesn't do a good job of clearing the road/driveway of snow and our car got stuck on the driveway- be careful!
