My wife Linda and I were married in South Lake Tahoe over 30 years ago and celebrated many an anniversary revisiting one of our favorite places on earth, but we've never ventured outside the realm of luxury resorts until now. So when we started exploring Tahoe as a spot for our annual family vacation we were surprised by the many places and prices to choose from but only one stood out for us; The Pioneer Trail home in South Lake Tahoe.
We had seen pictures inside and out but nothing would prepare us for the stunning beauty of this cabin or the breath taking and magnificent views we would experience around it as well!
We all gathered for our second only summer vacation as family; Mom/dad, our four grown children, their spouses and our ten wonderful grandchildren ranging in ages from 5 to 15, it is a brood no doubt. So finding a place to accommodate a party of 19 can be difficult especially during the summer and winter months and at the Holidays!
But they not only accommodated our entire family but you did so in Tahoe Luxury fashion as well. From the bunk beds for the five girls to a room the five boys could call their own, and the adults had an area to call their as well!
From the incredible floor plan and ease in managing most all our functions from the main dining area and grand living room, to celebrating and enjoying each other from within the walls of your Chateau and the many amenities with it!
And to top our trip off, we were able to enjoy all the local amenities such as hiking the Lower Truckee River, the falls, and the most incredible rafting from Tahoe City suited for all ages and just a short drive away from the cabin.
And while the boys/men were taking in a round of Disc (Frisbee) golf, the girls enjoyed pampering themselves at the local beaches and taking in some of the local sights. Dad even got to take advantage of some quiet time and a much needed nap in celebration of "Father's Day", Ahhh!
And any issues we may have encountered were quickly resolved with the owners by just picking up the phone!
We would highly recommend this getaway for any family gathering, large or small and strongly suggest taking full advantage of all it has to offer and what Lake Tahoe has to offer as well.
We look forward to our next stay at the Pioneer Trail property and are already discussing some dates.
