The vast lawn to the south of the property can accommodate up to 200 and just above the Lodge to the east is a smaller grass setting wrapped with granite rocks and Lake views for a more intimate event. As a destination location, Tunnel Creek Lodge has all the connections you may need to complete your special day including catering, florists, wedding coordinators, bands/DJ's, photographers and more.

A Mountain Bikers, Snowshoer's Paradise: The vast acreage surrounding Tunnel Creek Lodge is a virtual playground beckoning to be explored. Just a stone’s throw from your private luxury rental log home, the world famous Flume Trail takes you around the North Eastern 'rim' of Lake Tahoe where views are nothing short of spectacular. And mountain biking is just the beginning. Bike rentals, trail guides and endless local insight is available through the property owners and their local biking buddies.

There’s no question why Lake Tahoe has been known for centuries at “America’s Year-round Playground”. Lake Tahoe offers more indoor and outdoor recreation than any other destination in the country. With some of world's most beautiful golf courses, biking and hiking trails, boating, kayaking, miles of sandy beaches, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and 14 ski resorts, you'll want to save time for playtime.

Home, Home on the 'Ponderosa Ranch': A special feature about this Log Cabin is its connection to the internationally-famous Bonanza TV series. The property was part of the famous Ponderosa Ranch where Bonanza was filmed for many years and viewed by Cartwright fans from around the world. The views of Lake Tahoe remain just as breathtaking today as they have for years gone by.

While thousands passed through the nearby gates of the Ponderosa Ranch annually, few knew that behind a locked gate, just up the road, sat the private home Anderson carefully crafted to house his family. A few years later, his son chose to build his own luxury log cabin on a corner of the property with the most breathtaking Lake views. That home is now Tunnel Creek Lodge - and it available for you to enjoy, year-round. Today, it's one of the region's most exclusive locations for family reunions, anniversaries, corporate retreats and special events. For more information and party planning assistance, please contact us directly.

Craig & Liz Olson both grew up in Southern California - Craig, in the San Fernando Valley, and Liz, in Santa Clarita. Liz originally lived on her family's property in Agua Dulce, California, at Vasquez Rocks (now a County Park), where hundreds of films and TV shows have been shot for many years, including Bonanza, and Star Trek. You can ask Liz about her run-in with William Shatner, and how she inspired his love of horses, or about her role as a baby in the arms of Little Joe in old Bonanza episodes.

Craig and Liz have been visiting and enjoying Lake Tahoe together since 1989, and have made Incline Village their permanent home in 2011. They love Lake Tahoe, and enjoy sharing it with others - Tunnel Creek Lodge is a perfect way to share the beauty of the Lake Tahoe area with friends, family, and other visitors.

The Owner purchased this lodge in 2008

We loved the beauty of the original 5 acre parcel, with the old 'bunkhouse' (former Ponderosa Stables, and now Tunnel Creek Station) below, and the modern, yet rustic log cabin perched at the top of the hill, overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe and the mountains that surround it. As a mountain biker, Craig had passed the property countless times coming out of Nevada State Park after riding either the Rim or Flume Trail, and loved it being at the entrance to the park 'Just ride out of the driveway and onto the trail!'

This is a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5
If you want to stay in a class A log style home, this is the property! The lodge is furnished beautifully and the grounds are wonderful. The view out to Lake Tahoe takes your breath away. We watched amazing sunsets and sat out under star filled skies. One of our favorite adventures was a hike to Hidden Beach on the trail next to the lodge. The trail is literally steps away! There is so much history with the Ponderosa Ranch right across the street. You won't regret a stay at Tunnel Creek Lodge. The hospitality on arrival sets the stage for the start of a great trip! Enjoy!

What a view and peaceful surrounds!

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed the property and felt very at-home which was great for our multi-generational family trip. A great place to stay near our Son's Graduation form Sierra Nevada College. Craig was great to work with. The whole process went smoothly. A nice fruit and cheese plate upon arrival as well as a backpack of Tunnel Creek Swag to use in Tahoe. A nice farmer's market just below the property on Thursdays. Close to everything we wanted to do in Incline Village and the Tahoe area. Great walking/biking trails just outside the door of the beautiful log cabin. We hope to stay again with a group of friends.

More than we could have hoped for, outstanding

  • 5 of 5
We, my family (12 adults and 5 children) stayed at Tunnel Creek for the Christmas holidays this year Dec 2013. Nothing on line can truly represent the lodge, its location, its condition, its grounds and the views. It is outstanding in every way.
Above all the owner was there providing every thing we could want and more. It is extremely convent to all the great out door activities you could imagine, Biking, hiking, walking the beach, Skiing and of course relaxing after any of the activities in front of the fire or watching the sunset over the lake. we had a poor snow year, so only a little skiing but no one really missed it with all the other things to do. Can not recommend it enough. The family, especially the the grand kids, asked if we could not come here for all of January next year. Oh and the hot tub at night, looking at the lake , the lights and the stars was outstanding as well.

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
The view was breathtaking and the house was lovely and very comfortable. The stay was enjoyed by all 17 of us!!! The owner was very receptive to repairing the few things that were not working right.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you and your families enjoyed staying at Tunnel Creek Lodge for your family reunion, and we hope you will all come back to stay with us again.
Although we perform a very detailed inspection of the complete property to make certain that we have all of the items our guests will need, and that everything is in good working order, sometimes things may break during a guests' stay. Being only five minutes away, we can usually solve any problem almost immediately. This is why we tell all of our guests "If you have a problem - call us immediately. The only time you will bother us is when you have a problem that needs to be addressed, and you don't call us!"
Thanks again for your review!

Outstanding Lodge Accommodation in Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5
As we experienced Lake Tahoe from the Tunnel Creek Lodge, we realized that we had chosen an exquisite place to enjoy our family reunion. The interior design of the house enabled us to enjoy each others company in beautiful, comfortable surroundings. The exterior of the property afforded spectacular views of the lake and the mountains. We feel that we must return to this great place!

Large log home with great views and 6 king size beds! Kitchen to cook or a caterers dream. As an avid watcher of the long running TV show "Bonanza" really got a kick out of the property location - Ponderosa Ranch! Had DVD set of the series to watch after skiing. Hot tub had view and WIFI worked great!
