About Ashley and Marcus Mattila

We own a 4400 square foot Fine Art Gallery here in South Lake Tahoe, and because of this I know how important 'details' are to creating a wonderful experience. I have worked hard making 'Towering Pines Lodge' a retreat for your next vacation to South Lake Tahoe. This house is perfect for a couple or you can fill every pillow to the max, 9 people. Either way, for the price, I can not imagine what else you would need to make your vacation better. We often place our World Famous Artist's at 'Towering Pines Lodge' so the house is loaded with more Ameninites than most, and because we have the gallery, of course, there is wonderful Artwork throughout. Our house is clean, casual, cozy and perfect for your next vacation:) Enough about us...rent our house!!

Ashley and Marcus Mattila purchased this house in 1994

Why Ashley and Marcus Mattila chose Gardner Mountain

It is loaded with everything you need for a vacation! You can Cross Country Ski, Bike, Hike or Snow Shoe right here, out our back door - without driving. Our neighborhood is wonderful. We are in the forest and we live on a deadend street, but we are only a short drive to the Casinos, Heavenly, Stateline, NV.

The private hot-tub is the newest edition to Towering Pines Lodge. Imagine yourself in the dark of night with 1000's of stars sparkling above, in silence all while sitting in 104 degree, bubbling water. Ahhhh, so sweet:)

There are many US Forest Service trails at the end of the street to the Best Beaches of Tahoe, Fallen Leak Lake, Camp Richardson, and the Beacon. In the winter there is even a groomed track for snow shoeing and cross country skiing.

What makes this house unique

It is rare to find a house like ours for this price. The house is loaded with all the comforts to make your vacation wonderful. The house is super, super Cozy AND Clean which is a tough find for a South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals. Many of our clients have rented our house over and over again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Ashley,

Sorry for the late response! I wanted to thank you so much for letting us use your beautiful home! It was the first time my family celebrated Christmas somewhere else besides my parents house in 28 years. Everyone was so pleased with the house and they are already talking about their next trip to Tahoe. Your house had everything we needed and things we didn't know we needed making my families trip so relaxing. My father owns a furniture store and wanted me to tell you that if you are ever in need he would love to trade furniture for another stay (fully understanding that it would exclude holidays). Again thank you so much for everything and thank you for waiving the dog fee, that was very sweet of you!!

Have a great day!!

Great Location and Amenities!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 7 (5 adults and 2 small children) stayed at Towering Pines last weekend along with our two dogs. I was concerned it was going to be too far out of town, but it was actually perfect. A quiet street (my daughter got to practice riding her bike), hiking trails easily accessible at the end of the road, grocery and amenities nearby (a mile or so away), and yet close enough to South Lake proper to take advantage of all the area has to offer. The fenced back yard was perfect for the dogs to run around in worry-free. Besides all this, the home was clean and well-stocked with all the essentials, including in the kitchen and baths. Overall a great experience - I imagine we'll be back again!

Perfect home for family

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying in this home for a week, and would DEFINATELY recommend it to anyone looking for a home-away-from home. The house was awesome, but let me start with the owners first.

We felt very lucky to have them right next door, and they made themselves available numerous times for anything we needed, from borrowing their lawn chairs for a trip to the lake to coming over and showing me how to turn the oven on (even though it interrupted their own dinnertime!!). Prior to arriving I had made numerous calls to them and always got an immediate response to whatever question I had. We brought our labrador on vacation with us, and she rally enjoyed their new puppy tremendously - they had a great time playing in the yard together! It felt like we had family members right next door.

The house was perfect. It was spotless - extremely clean and well-supplied with linens, toiletry items, and everything you would need to feel at home. We had a large group of family members from different parts of the country who had come to town for the Marathon, and the accommodations could not have been better. The home has two master bedrooms, with one being separate from the main living area which offered complete quiet and privacy for those retiring early. All of the beds were very comfortable, and each room had plenty of closet space, dressers, and son on. The family room was spacious and cozy, and the dining room sat 7 comfortably, making for great family time at each meal. The kitchen was large, allowing for lots of group cooking and visiting! Also of note is the great location - it felt like we were 10 minutes from EVERYTHING! The lake, restaurants, casinos, groceries, and gas were literally minutes away - yet the street the home is on is quiet and beautiful with friendly people all around it.

This is a perfect vacation rental and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a house that feels like home from the minute you walk in. Thanks for making it the perfect week for our very large family!

Great week in Tahoe

  • 5 of 5
Spent with week in Tahoe with my adult kids and their significant others. Getting a house was definitely the best way to go, and this house was perfect for us. The master bedroom is great and away from the other bedrooms (and noisy kids). The house is in a nice quiet location, close to all the things you would want to do in the area. The horseshoe pit was a nice plus for something to do while we enjoyed the back deck. It was nicely appointed and there were sufficient dishes and supplies to make it seem like home. If we all visit the area again together we would want to do the same thing.

Well equiped house

  • 4 of 5
Great location and well equipped just as the house was advertised. However, not a very private location. Owners lived in a very close proximity. Actually, pictures of deck are taken from their house. Owner standing on his porch watching us as we unloaded our car, stood on his balcony to check on us because he saw smoke, (it was the barbeque), make business calls from their deck, which we could hear, talked outside master bedroom window early in the morning, could not use deck or hot tub during daylight hours because children watched from their deck and visited us on Saturday afternoon to get our recycling. Great house and owners very nice, I just like a little more privacy while I'm on vacation.

Owner's Response: Some of your points made me sad. 4th of July is a very busy time here on Tata Lane and with all of South Tahoe hanging 'no vacancy' signs. Personally our family was so busy during this time period that I personally just simply did not have the time to bother with you. I am sorry that our owner presence was such an annoying factor to your vacation experience. But thank you for 4 our of 5 stars. We must be doing something right!

Most of our guest like the home owner to be in a close proximity to their vacation home. We do all the snow removal in the winter for our guests free of charge and the house is well tended to in terms of maintenance, cleanliness, and amenities offered mainly because of our short commute to the vacation home. This is a side job for us. Our only goal is: We want to offer a comfortable home for visiting folks to South Tahoe. We personally love Tahoe! The vacationer's experience is our priority.

As I mentioned, you are right: Privacy would be hard to find over 4th of July here in South Tahoe; I hate our fully enclosed, newly installed 6 foot tall privacy fence was not private enough for you:( Most of guest find this area lovely! And thank you for your comment about disturbing you on Sat to recycle. That was a good lesson for my hubby and kids! That was a rare occurrence anyway.

Perfect Family Location

  • 5 of 5
We just completed a summer family vacation at the Towering Pines house and I'm already dreaming about going back! The location is a perfect spot for a young, active family. Beach access to Pope Beach is ~2 miles away along quintessential Tahoe bike trail (and free if entering by bike). That beach is just one option....others are close by. The house is very comfortable and accommodating with the right mix of creature comforts, but without the busy crowds that you'd expect at a resort. This is a great option if you're in the mood for a quiet yet active vacation.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you For sharing your beautiful home with my family. We had an amazing trip! Your home provided room for everyone to spread out. We loved all the extra touches you have added and appreciate all the extras you provide for your guests! This home is better than advertised! Location is fabulous, we spent every day at a new beach, rode our bikes from the driveway all over town, and went on several beautiful hikes!
