Overview

Tahoe City Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condominium/Townhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (Sleeps 7)

Welcome to our “Tree House” and thank you for considering it for your vacation/weekend rental needs. If you like light, warmth, color and Tahoe nature, you will feel right at home in our residence. A family retreat for years, we started to open up our home for guests three years ago and only recently listed it on VRBO. Enter the Townhouse on the lower level, where there are two bedrooms, one bathroom and a laundry/wet room. While you climb the stairs, begin to appreciate the artwork on every wall, from local artists representing Tahoe and mountain scenes. At the top of the stairs it opens up into a large living room, which is all about light, color and comfort. Skylights surround the room, offering a feeling of being outside in the trees. Notice the built-in hand carved stone fireplace and entertainment center (large television, DVD/CD player and wifi), which is the focal point of the room. Adjacent is the “cupola,” which is a separate dining area, surrounded by windows that seat 10 comfortably. The kitchen is fully equipped and provides easy access to the dining and living areas. The living room opens up to the deck, which appears “suspended” in the trees and overlooks greenbelt area and the tennis courts. Lastly, the master bedroom with a queen size bed and bathroom is located at the front of the condominium providing some separation from the living areas.

Outside, the Tahoe Tavern property is gated for security (summer only) and is serenely beautiful for year round fun. Enjoy the heated pool (closed in winter) that overlooks Lake Tahoe. The well known Tahoe Tavern Pier (private and largest on the lake) provides incomparable views, sandy beach, roped off swimming area, buoys and pier attendant (summer only) for boating fun. There are six tennis courts and pro shop, which is adjacent to our Townhouse. There are numerous walking trails throughout the property and many large grassy areas for children’s play.

The “Tree House” is located within walking distance from Tahoe City (on a newly completed bike trail) for restaurants, shopping, biking, rafting and boating, to just name a few. It is a short drive to Alpine Valley, Squaw Valley and Homewood for skiing in the winter. It has easy winter access as the Tahoe Tavern property is snowplowed daily. Historic Truckee is only 20 minutes away. It is a premier destination for year round recreational fun!

About Will Cogswell

The “Tree House” belonged to our parents who lived in Lake Tahoe four months out of the year. Tahoe was their “primary love” since buying a cabin on the West Shore in the late 1960’s. In 2001, when the cabin became too difficult to manage in the winter, they purchased the “Tree House” in Tahoe Tavern. Completely satisfied to stay on property they would walk the grounds and spend hours reading and playing cards in the light of the upstairs. They often talked of the “spirit and calm” they experienced while living in the “Tree House.” With such good memories, we want others to enjoy Tahoe Tavern and the year round amenities that it brings.

Will Cogswell purchased this condo in 2001

Comfortable Clean Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I had a great stay at the Tree House this summer. The place is clean, updated and very comfortable. We also had a lot of family in town during our stay and the Tree House was a wonderful place to entertain. Enough seating…kitchen seemed to have all of the essentials that we needed..and of course-Tahoe Taverns had tons of activities (the pier, the pool, the tennis courts and big grassy lawns for the kids to run). It's a great family place-but it's also nice for a couples get-away. The Tree House is in walking distance to some of Tahoe's best spots (Tahoe City…Tahoe House Bakery, The Bridgetender Bar/Restaurant). And…just a super short drive to hikes/skiing etc. You really can't go wrong with this location. The outside patio is small-but we enjoyed it for meals & card games outside. We've been coming to Tahoe in the summer for years and this was one of our favorite stays. We'll definitely try to stay here again.

Gorgeous during rain or shine

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 2 weeks at "The Tree House." When we walked upstairs into the main "Great Room," we all agreed that "Tree House" was a perfect description....Since it's an end unit, it has windows, surrounded by trees, on all 3 sides. It was quiet, scenic, and very relaxing. We had quite a bit of stormy weather, which was very unusual for this time of year, but we didn't feel "cooped up" because of the airiness of the room and all of the light. The location in the complex is perfect, too. We had plenty of room in the carport for all of our bikes and lake equipment. The beds were very comfortable....It's a perfect place for a big family......We would recommend it to everyone for a nice get-away...

The Tree House was IDEAL!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great week staying at "The Tree House." The unit is thoughtfully furnished and very comfortable. My husband, myself and our three kids (9, 7 & 3) had more than enough room. The location is ideal, within a short walk to Tahoe City. I enjoyed walking with our 3 year old to Tahoe House for coffee every morning. We also walked daily to Commons Beach/park- it was delightful. The Tahoe Tavern property is beautiful as well - extremely quiet, many large grassy areas, nicely maintained tennis courts and a beautiful pool (with a 2.5' shallow area for young kids) that overlooks Lake Tahoe. As for the owners - they could not have been nicer. They were very responsive and very organized. We had a great experience renting from them! We usually stay every summer in Tahoe for a week and I hope to return next summer to the Tree House! Great Spot!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay at the "Tree House" and it was beautiful again. All of the natural light that comes in the many windows is wonderful and brings life to the condo each morning!

Family vacation here feels like being at home with all of the amenities. The tennis courts, swimming pool and ping pong tables bring many fun activities to the complex. We also enjoyed playing frisbee in the large open grassy area at the Tahoe Tavern complex. Another bonus is the short walk to Tahoe City where we enjoyed looking at a variety of shops and restaurants. We would definitely recommend this property for anyone planning a trip to the Tahoe area!

Owner's Response: To our third time renters, thank you, thank you, thank you. Light and color is something the "Tree House" has all of the time. We would love to have you return anytime you can.

Ski lease

  • 5 of 5

We did a ski lease at the "tree house" Dec through April. Despite this being one of the driest winters in a long time we had a wonderful time. The condo was perfect for our family, including our extended family when they were in town for the holidays. The tree house can comfortably accommodate 2 families, especially with the room with a queen, a single and a trundle, which is a great room for kids. We hope to back for the next ski season. Our kids were sad to not be going back to the Tahoe House, as they affectionately referred to it.

Owner's Response: What great renters you were! Thanks for pointing out the sleeping arrangements for more than one family. We would love to have you return next ski season. In the meantime we will try to get your family to their "Tahoe House" for a weekend this summer.

Wonderful stay!

Our family had a great stay at the tree house. It was nicely furnished and very comfortable. Nice quite location overlooking the tennis courts. The owners were extremely easy to work with, communication was great. We have stayed at a few other units and will definitely return to the this one. Lovely!
