Lodgepole Pine House is a very special custom built home- not the typical vacation rental.

our favorite tahoe ski house

  • 5 of 5
We have returned to the Lodgepole Pine house several years in a row now. It's very easy to get to from SF and is super comfortable for 3 families with young children to relax and have fun. The kids love the loft- and we love the open floor plan on the main floor. Plenty of bathrooms, heated floors, and well stocked kitchen. Very clean and comfortable- and even has yoga mats. Can easily ski to Royal Gorge, and it's just 5 minutes to Sugar Bowl, or 30 to Heavenly. And if anything comes up, questions or otherwise, Anne is a pleasure to communicate with and very accessible. We've always come up in the winter, but I imagine it would be lovely in summer as well. The place has 3 decks and wonderful outdoor space.

Comfortable home in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time that I've stayed in Lodgepole Pine House (LPH), and it was better than ever. The house is beautifully designed, and it's furnished and fully stocked with everything needed for a comfortable and fun stay. The large, open living space (kitchen, dining, living and library) are perfect for even a large group to cook, eat and relax together. The house backs unto a beautiful forest that was recently thinned to reduce fire hazards -- now one can see through the trees to the sunset and more light reaches the house.

Late September

  • 5 of 5
Astonishingly lovely place, comfortable, beautifully furnished and finished. Only complaint is that the exteriors of the other houses (with few exceptions) aren't up to Lodgepole's standards. The site is also quite choice, looking from the back to the forest and no other houses.

OUTSTANDING HOME!!

  • 5 of 5
We had the BEST time ever in this beautiful, architecturally unique, and warm, spacious home. We have stayed many times in the area, but Serene Lakes is very special and the Lodgepole Pine House is hands above anyplace else we have ever rented. There were 13 of us and we all slept comfortably and never felt crowded. We started every day with a walk around the lake or a long hike taken from one of the many hiking books on the shelves, came home to eat lunch in the well-stocked kitchen, rode the bikes provided to the lake to swim and kayak in the warm water. We would then return and cook up elaborate meals on the BBQ and in the kitchen that has every gadget a cook could wish for! It was great how we could all comfortably fit around the big table, where we ate and laughed for hours, followed by playing games on the porch. Everything in the home was of such quality; my daughters especially liked the herbal shampoos and soaps. Anne was very responsive to any questions that we had, and we all agree we have forever been spoiled and will never be satisfied staying in any other cabin. We can't wait to come back!

A fabulous stay - whatever season

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed at the Lodgepole Pine House 3 or 4 times, & I'm remiss in writing a review. This is a fabulous house, whether one is staying the in the winter for skiing, spring for mushroom hunting or walking, summer for swimming, or fall for tree colors & more walking. The house accomodates many guests, yet there is lots of privacy & quiet, without being too spread-out. The house is very clean (which I particularly appreciate), pleasant, not cluttered at all & well-thought out. The Serene Lakes area provides lots of quiet paths for roaming, the lake is absolutely the best for swimming, and one can get to town easily. I will definitely return.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
I have rented many places using VRBO and I have to say this is by far the best I have ever experienced. It is amazing in every detail. I'll begin at the beginning. Upon our arrival we pulled into the garage and unloaded all our gear in the spacious "mud room" on the bottom floor. The place was immaculate - something I have not found in many place I have rented - so it is much appreciated. The architecture is unlike anything I have seen before and can easily be recognized as a custom home designed by an experienced and creative architect (I believe the owner herself!). The bedrooms are spacious and there is plenty of room for any large group to spread out. The large doors and windows bring in natural light that fills the house. I love the wood stove most of all - it fills the house with a warmth that folds around you. And the radiant heating (which we really didn't need with the fireplace going) avoids the noise and dryness of forced air heating. The peace and quiet you feel here makes you never want to go home! Our visit was in June but I will be coming back in the fall for sure. Don't miss this place!
