Us: 4 couples (mid 20s-30s) looking for vacation rental close to slopes and casinos
The cabin has it all! We visited during Christmas week and there was about a foot of snow on the ground. At that point in December 2013 one winter snow storm had come through.
Kitchen is fully stocked with anything you would ever need to make a delicious meal! We even used the crock pot for our Christmas roast!
Plenty of space to hang around downstairs. In total, the cabin has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One of the bedrooms upstairs is a bunk room and has a full-sized bunk bed with a twin bunk on the top. As well as 3 additional twin beds in the room (2 of which can be pushed together to make a king if you wanted to). The other 3 bedrooms each have either a queen or king I believe.
The hot tub was perfect and very hot! It was so awesome to get home from a day of skiing and relax in it :-)
We were able to bring our dog, which was really wonderful us. There is even a dog-run rope/line outside to tie up your pup so they can play outside but not run away!
The house is about 20 minutes from Heavenly Ski Area and 20 minutes from Sierra at Tahoe. It is in a nice neighborhood that backs up to a large open field. Our group hiked through the field and up a nearby hill and sledded down the hill. Some actually snowboarded, then hiked back up the hill for some fun and cheap snow adventures.
The property itself is well maintained and smelled very clean when we got there. There was plenty of firewood and the fireplace works very well. Chuck was very responsive to our initial inquiry and answered any questions we had before we booked our vacation. The home is within walking distance to a corner store with a large beer selection as well as other smaller establishments. Within about 5 minutes is a large grocery store, pizza, etc.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation in South Tahoe. The house is fully stocked, warm and cozy, and close to attractions without being extremely expensive. Perfect for a big group of friends or families with kids.
