Guestbook comments from the owner
The location of the condo was just right. Slightly away from the main street and nicely located in the trees. A short walk from the Lake and a short bus or car ride to Heavenly and the Casinos. The laundry was useful but could do with having machines that accept $1.00 bills as finding 4 quarters for every wash was not easy. The pool was nice as was the hot tub. I would highly recommend this property and would willingly visit again.

Greg and Penny Ripke, owners. We married in 1972. I carried mail for USPS for 32 years and Penny was a server with Bob's Big Boy and then CoCo's restaurant. We both retired in 2005 and always dreamed of owning a vacation home in Lake Tahoe. In 1989 we pruchased and A-frame cabin and switched to our condo in 1993.

Greg purchased this condo in 1993

Bavarian Village is right in the center of town and close to everything! We love Tahoe because of all the daytime activities like biking, hiking, boating, skiing and the breathtaking scenery Lake Tahoe offers. You can't say that about Vegas! We love the gaming action at night but yet we are one mile away and close to all of the main Lake Tahoe venues! Dozens of restaurants to choose from to satisfy any taste! You will love Ernie's, Heidi's, Applebees, The Red Hut, The Cantina, and the sumptuous casinos buffets. Where would you like to eat tonight? We are also blocks to ski rentals, shopping and the Ski Run Marina.

Over the last 20 years we've added personal touches unique to our condo. We feature natural pine cabinets highlighted by 'mountain green' trim. We boast a spectacular 'Heavenly view' from our master bedroom window. You will love our master bedroom hotel security safe for your valuables. Indiglo nite lights in every room so you never lose you way on the dark. Labeled electric switches. Hand made coat racks with small hooks for your car keys. Luggage stands and clothing valets in every bedroom. A high chair for our smaller guests. A 'roving' TV remote and cable channel guides for each TV. Wonderful wood-log lamps and matching chandelier. A first-aid kit. An emergency power failure light in the living room/hallway. Free hot chocolate and microwave popcorn!

This is a great place to stay, and the price is very reasonable. We took our children on family vacation and stayed at the Ripke condo. The location, ammenities, decor, and new updates to the condo make it perfect for a couple to get away, or a family vacation. We want to go back and plan far enough in advance to take advantage of this place again.

COZY STAY!

  • 4 of 5
Living room is cozy and comfy. The kitchen is very well equipped. I love the heater on each bathrooms ( great for winter and cold mornings) .
I love the earthy/cabin like decor. Very clean place.
The master bedroom is perfect!
Only negative- the hot tub was not open when we were there. I'd stay here again and will probably just bring my own pillows. Over all, great and relaxing stay!!

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, AND REASONABLY PRICED

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I had a pleasant stay. The unit was clean and comfortable.

A few things we liked:
- comfortable living room, perfect for unwinding after an exhausting day of skiing; the fireplace and large TV add a nice touch.
- reasonably priced
- reasonably equipped kitchen

There are just a few things I’d recommend to the owners to improve the guest experience:
1. Improve the Internet speed. These days, everyone expects reasonable network speed for their laptops and mobile phones. Some of my friends couldn’t even get on the network, likely because there were too many connections. For the geeks: 385ms latency and 0.7Mbs download speed! Loading YouTube videos resulted in an error. Oh, and the network doesn’t even work in the back bedroom (there’s a sign that says “network works best in the front of the unit.”
2. Provide soap and shampoo in the bathrooms. I’m lucky that one of my friends brought an extra emergency soap and shampoo from a previous hotel stay.
3. Use brighter light bulbs in bedrooms. Felt really dark and dreary.

Owner's Response: We have been working with our HOA to upgrade our Charter internet service for the last two years. Our HOA has been slow in responding as far as negotiating a bulk rate for broadband service.

Our management agency, Pinnacle Lake Tahoe Getaways provides toiletries (soaps and shampoo) for our guests. We'll immediately get in touch with them to find out why they were not provided with your stay.

Each bedroom has a table lamp on each night stand (master has two), and brushed nickel wall sconces. So, each bedroom has at least two light sources (75 watt bulbs each wall sconce). We'll check our bedroom lighting next time we are in the condo.

GREAT WEEKEND GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is perfect for a weekend getaway with friends and family. The spacious rooms provide a comfortable environment for everyone. The cabin is fully equipt with cooking necessities making it easy to cook in rather than going out. Also being down the road from the Safeway is very convenient. There is a park near the cabin and it made it easier to play in the snow. Overall a great place and I'd stay there again!

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
PERFECT PLACE for young families! Traveling with a 19 month old is difficult. This Condo made it so much easier! Condo is stocked with everything you need, just like a hotel! Towels are laid out on each bed on your arrival. Kitchen has some basic staple items, and everything you need to cook with! Hairdryer, towels, blankets, even lawn chairs are available. There is a HUGE playground within a 5 minute walk. The pool is heated, hot tub is nice. The area is well kept, and we saw maintenance people at the pool everyday doing upkeep. Wi Fi is good, sometimes a little spotty, but for the most part fine. DVD player for your videos is easy to work. The owner is awesome! Even arranged for a late check out so my little girl could get her nap in before we left so my whole day wasn't ruined! Extremely conveniently located.... safeway 3 minute drive, casinos and restaurants about 5 minutes. We come to Lake Tahoe every year for a hockey tournament, and will be sure to try and rent this condo again!

Owner's Response: Dear Kara.......We appreciate your kind words. I thank our property manager, Michelle Benedict, at Pinnacle Lake Tahoe Getaways, who worked with me to arrange your later check-out time! We are so pleased to see comments that justify all of our "owner upgrades" and care. You won't get that staying in a hotel room!

BEAUTIFUL VIEW / CENTRAL LOCATION / CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
This Condo was fabulous! Not only was it a short drive anywhere in Tahoe, but we were able to walk to dinner & the lake! The view's from the Master & second bedroom were GORGEOUS! The breeze at night, being on the second floor was perfect to leave our windows open, waking up to fresh mountain air was delightful! Very well maintained, cared for home - we will definitely be back. (TV was fuzzy when we arrived, Greg - the owner was super responsive, and Bruce - the technician, was fast and very friendly) Cards on the patio w/morning coffee awesome! iPod stereo, baking cookies, refreshing pool, my teenagers enjoyed themselves very much as well.

One block west of the corner of Ski Run Blvd and Highway 50 turn in on Herbert Ave. Go three blocks in to find the Ripke Condo inside Bavarian Village. We cherish our secluded location away from all the traffic and stateline crowds. We still love being less than one mile from both Heavenly California base, including the Marriott Village Gondola. Rent skis one block east from multiple vendors on Ski Run Blvd. Safeway market located three blocks east along with and shopping and restaurants.

Find shortcuts around town using Pioneer Trail, 'the back road' to all venues around the lake.
