About the property

This charming chalet has it all - a convenient location with a genuine Tahoe feel.

The chalet is close to a wide range of attractions, including Heavenly Ski Resort (2.9 miles), South Lake Tahoe restaurants (2.2 miles), casinos (3.8 miles), Stateline, Lake Tahoe beaches (3.2 miles), marinas, dining, entertainment and much more!

With a mountain view, Forest Service land next door, and a creek running through the back of the property, this chalet gives you a get-away-from-it-all feel. Plus the perfect hill for sledding is right in the backyard for the young ones. And there is a trail adjacent to the backyard that is perfect for hikes, mountain biking, cross-county skiing, or snowshoeing.

This cozy retreat includes a hot tub, fireplace, wireless internet, a wall-mounted 42-inch HD TV in the living room with DVD player and Netflix, an HD TV and DVD player in the master bedroom, a new leather couch in the living room, and a warm, tasteful décor.

This two-story home has five bedrooms and two-and-a half bathrooms. Our parking permit allows four cars in the driveway and two in the street.

The first floor kitchen has all the appliances. There is plenty of counter space for preparing large meals. The kitchen provides bar space with seating and is adjacent to the dining area, which has a table seating eight. The living room has a fireplace and two couches to allow everyone to enjoy the après ski experience. Also on the first floor are two bedrooms, and a full bathroom with a washer and dryer.

The large first floor deck wraps around the back of the house with a fantastic view of the surrounding forest and mountains. Sit on the deck chairs around the gas fire pit or enjoy the hot tub, perfect after a long day on the slopes or hiking. Cook a meal on the gas grill and enjoy it at the picnic table.

On the second floor, there are a half bathroom and three bedrooms, including the master bedroom with a private bathroom and private deck.

This house is permitted to sleep up to twelve (12) people.

Bedroom #1 downstairs has Queen bed (sleeps 2).

Bedroom #2 downstairs has a full-over-full bunk bed (sleeps 2-4).

Bedroom #3, the master bedroom upstairs, has a King (sleeps 2).

Bedroom #4, upstairs, has a Queen (sleeps 2).

Bedroom #5, upstairs, has two singles (sleeps 2).

There is a folding queen foam mattress (sleeps 1-2).

The living room has a blue couch (sleeps 1).

The living room has a brown couch (sleeps 1-2).

The house has a tankless on-demand water heater, so the hot water will never run out -- even if everyone showers one after the other.

While the house is surrounded by forest in the back and on one side, we do have neighbors on the other side and across the street. They do not like noise. If you want to have a crazy, loud party (and when I was young, that's was the way I liked it), for your sake and ours, please don't book this house.

If you have any questions regarding this ideal vacation home in a wonderful location, please feel free to give me a call anytime.

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people staying here (two families of four, and two grandmas). The cabin is clean and neat. Everything you need is there. There is one half bath and two regular (one with shower, one with tub). I would say it is ideal for two families of 4-5. It's cozy and just right.

The owner was very helpful and friendly, promptly replying to all emails (thank you!).

This is a residential neighborhood, and the across the street neighbors have made clear that they do not support vacation rentals in their neighborhood (they have a sign promptly displayed in their yard stating as much, so that you can read it when you drive in). As soon as we drove in, I saw the neighbor dusting a rug so I smiled and waved (she had no choice but to wave back....and smile). Sometimes that's all it takes. So if you rent here, be sensitive to this issue and don't be a loud drunk jerk (or whatever).

Really enjoyed our stay. Great little cabin in the woods.

Good Location and Privacy for Group

  • 4 of 5

The house, while somewhat close to neighbors, has a nice view in the back and provided plenty of privacy for our group of 10. The landlord communicated well and kept me updated on some remodeling he was having done in one of the bathrooms. Fireplace was nice, hot tub was perfect. There wasn't an abundance of living/common space but it was enough for our group to be comfortable and enjoy Tahoe. Very close to heavenly and Sierra-at-Tahoe. Good trip.

Perfect cabin for a ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here! There were only 6 of us (4 adults and 2 kids), and it was so luxurious for the kids to get their own bedrooms, and for my mom to not have to climb stairs to get to her room. The cabin could comfortably fit more. There was a ton of living room space, the kitchen worked great (with the best knives I've ever had in a vacation home rental), and there was a great sledding hill outside. It was close to the town, to Heavenly, and to the grocery store. We had a little electrical trouble when we got in, but the Property Managers and Rick got it sorted out quickly. We're definitely going to try to stay here again when we come back to Tahoe!

Best Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Had such a wonderful time and experience at the cabin. It was very spacious and included all amenities as if you were at your own house. The kids had a great time sledding down the hill and playing in the snow. Sitting in the hot tub while snow was falling was an unforgettable experience. The scenery of snow and icicles were absolutely beautiful. The owner Rick was more than helpful and reassuring when we traveled during the severe Winter storm. We will be returning!
