Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

The cabin was remodeled from its 1976 origins in 2012 so gone is that beloved 70's paneling and the extra walls so the whole kitchen - dining - living area flow together; with the original open beam ceiling it has a comfy spacious feel to it. This living area has the deck off of it and it has wonderful southern exposure so there it is light and bright all day long. The view of the Carson Range near Heavenly and the grassy green lawn make this a nice little peaceful refuge.

The space of the house is nicely laid out and it utilizes it well. First floor has full size bedroom with roomy closet and queen bed, full bath and laundry room you can use. Second floor has a 'cozy' bedroom with a pretty ponderosa pine outside its window (queen bed), plus the large bedroom with the same view of the mountains as from the deck. This bedroom has a queen bed and two single futons. The second floor has the vaulted chalet ceiling, and there is another bath with shower.

Kitchen has all new appliances that includes a gas stove (instead of electric!) and, mercifully, a dishwasher. With the granite counter tops and island, plus all the cooking gear and plates you'll need you can get to work cooking up a storm in there should you desire.

There are a couple of bar stools at the island, and the dining table has a leaf so you can expand it to seat 8.

Living room has new efficient wood stove, 46 inch LCD HDTV and DVD player, and some comfortable seating - better than we have at home!

All the bedrooms have clothes closets and new high quality, non-toxic mattresses made in the US. The big bedroom has a small (32 x 48') Foosball/multi game table and a 37 inch LCD HDTV.

There are a bunch of chairs, an umbrella, and BBQ for the spacious deck which is on a cool green lawn.

What we have in the cabin:

The cabin has a refrigerator, gas stove, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, rice cooker, blender, coffee maker with filters, coffee grinder, a standard set of pots and pans, dishes, food containers, mugs and glasses.

Washer, dryer, hair dryer in each bathroom, iron and small ironing board in the laundry room, one set of bed linens per bed, four pillows per bed, one bath and one hand towel per guest. Also in the closet are deck loungers and canvas “director” chairs.

Great central location in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. No ugly power lines! Just up the street you can walk or ski into the Upper Truckee Marsh Conservancy area and make your way to the lake or the Tahoe Keys.

Located 2 miles from the 'Y' (US 50 and 89 - many stores and Raleys supermarket) and 4 miles from Stateline (Casinos).

The South Lake Tahoe Bike Path passes through here a few blocks away. Its about a 10 minute bike ride to go 2 miles up to Regan Beach.

The great City of South Lake Tahoe Recreation complex is a few miles away and has a swimming pool, basketball courts and weight room.

The Bijou Community Park is near the recreation center located on Al Tahoe Blvd, and it has a Free Frisbee Golf Course, skateboard park, and many other features.

Nearby also is the year round South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena. Its 4 miles to Heavenly Ski Area. 5 miles to Camp Richardson.

You may buy damage insurance for a $59 fee instead of giving us a deposit. The damage insurance is issued by Homeaway and is not refundable. To arrange this click 'Email Owner' with your dates, make that request and I'll send you a quote with which you can book the cabin.

Please inquire about pets. No cats please. Dogs are fine but you agree to any extra cleaning fees the cleaning crew says they have to charge when they clean. What will cause that? Hair everywhere. No pets in the beds or on the comforters and throws. I trust my cleaning crew and it takes quite a bit of extra effort for them to charge extra.

Check in/out times are 4:00pm/11:00am.

The listed rate and minimum stay do not apply during holiday periods such as Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, among others.

Rates include South Lake Tahoe 12% Local TOT taxes.

About Peter Rapier

My name is Peter. The first place I backpacked in California was in the Desolation Wilderness, first rock climbing at 90 Foot Wall, and up near Luther Pass south of here is the first place we camped out with our daughter (at 4 months). We love it up here and have been coming for years, bringing visitors and family along.

Peter Rapier purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Peter Rapier chose Highland Woods

Central location yet quiet, no ugly power lines, walking and bike trails right nearby.

Charming, Clean Mountain Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cozy cabin, The living/eating/kitchen area is just the right size. When we were inside, we spent most of our time together here because there is plenty of comfortable seating. Everything was easy to use because of the great instructions,. The cabin is two blocks from the bike trail that goes for miles so the location is great. We will definitely stay here again if we return to South Lake Tahoe and have already recommended the cabin to friends.

Modern rustic cozy vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well-kept, well-equipped and thoughtfully decorated home. Ample space and great porch and backyard space. Loved the visitors of nature: birds, squirrels and even bunny rabbits. Owner great about responding promptly. Had a wonderful family reunion here. Would've stayed longer if I could.

Great space, great location!

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for our family. The house was super clean and had everything we needed. The grassy area in the back was great for the kids to play on and spy cute bunnies. Nice neighborhood to walk in and close to all the restaurants and businesses in town. We would definitely stay here again!

Absolute A+

  • 5 of 5

It was warm, inviting and most important clean, all the way around. My family and I enjoyed ourselves. We will most definitely be coming back to this property every year. We have used other sites for weekend getaways in Tahoe. This property here has topped them all. It's not about having such enormous space but having that close net feeling that your family can appreciate. My family and I felt like the homeowners knew our taste, and comfortability. Which made everything else feel like home sweet home! Thank you again for such a peaceful stay...

Great central location in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. No ugly power lines! Just up the street you can walk or ski into the Upper Truckee Marsh Conservancy area and make your way to the lake or the Tahoe Keys. The South Lake Tahoe Bike Path passes through here a few blocks away. Its about a 10 minute bike ride to go 3 miles up to Regan's Beach. Located Between the 'Y' (US 50 and 89) and Stateline (Casinos), the great City of South Lake Tahoe Recreation complex is a few miles away and has a swimming pool, basketball courts and weight room. The Bijou Community Park is near the recreation center located on Al Tahoe Blvd, and it has a Free Frisbee Golf Course, skateboard park, and many other features. Nearby also is the year round South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena. Emerald Bay and excellent day hiking and backpacking into the Desolation Wilderness is only 10 miles west. Grover State Park and the year round Hot springs, our favorite, is only 30 miles.
