Hello. My husband and I moved to Northern CA many years ago and Lake Tahoe has always been our special place. We are so proud and excited to finally own a place of our own here.

I grew up outside of Chicago and the mountains and lake simply fascinate me. I love the serenity and beauty that is all around in Lake Tahoe.

My husband grew up in Denver area so loves to ski and also cycle. He rides up and down the Kingsbury Grade 'for fun' when we are there in non winter months. He's just taken up mountain biking because of all the trails and sights available outside our door. If you are here in the warmer time- the Flume Trail and Lake Marlette are absolutely amazing. You can cross country ski to Lake Marlette from Spooner in the winter.

We have a home in the Sacramento area -only two hours away so we make it up to Tahoe as much as we can.

We use our home often but welcome to opportunity to share it with others with hope that it will be as appreciated and enjoyed by those renting it. We are a bit nervous about this venture but hope that if you chose to stay in our property that you will appreciate the quality and craftmanship and will take care of it as you would want your home taken care of.

We are happy to answer any questions and address any concerns that you may have. Just call or email us!

Karen Medalen purchased this townhome in 2011

We have a timeshare at 'the Ridge' at the top of Kingsbury Grade so we come to Tahoe many times every year. We love it up here and have been looking for years for the right property to buy.

It was challenging finding all the features we wanted - the cozy Tahoe woodsy look and feel but also a garage and parking and a building that is well maintained. We found this duplex (our neighbor is awesome and has the identical unit as us and lives there year round) that had most of the features we wanted but was in great need up updating.

So we contacted our family in Utah that does custom woodworking and they put in all custom cabinets, wood trim, hand made doors, that put the charm and Tahoe feel that we were looking for into our home. The quality and craftmanship or our home is spectacular..we still can't believe it's ours!

All the woodwork is custom and unique of the highest quality that you will not find elsewhere. The location to the ski lifts is so convenient. The garage and driveway make parking and storage ideal. It is on a main road so streets are well plowed and access is easy in the winter months.

Excellent location and great amenities.

We loved our stay here this year. Last year we stayed in a duplex style property in Tahoe that had almost 90 stairs to climb just to get to to the front door(not fun). We arrived on Friday and checked out Monday. Only about 16 stairs this time, which was good because we had a pregnant woman in our party of 6. Has two balconies, all updated appliances and counter tops. Games, movies, books were all available to pass the time. New electronics throughout as well. Definitely worth while. We had one hiccup when we arrived, but Karen was quick to respond and resolve the issue. Karen was also great to communicate with if we needed to reach out to her for anything.
Saturday night we got 3" of fresh snow, so Sunday Snowboarding was a blast. Definitely recommend this to anybody interested in a well priced cabin style home with all the amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review and for your very kind words. We appreciate you taking care of our home and letting us know of the 'hiccup' and giving us a chance to address it. Your communication and patience is much appreciated. I'm so glad you got some snow and got a good day of snowboarding in. Thank You and I look forward to your return to Tahoe!
Best, Karen (and Richard)

Heavenly Ski Adventure

We had a GREAT time in the Tahoe area with some good skiing at Heavenly. The house was lovely, well-appointed and fully stocked with everything that anybody would need for sleeping, entertainment and cooking. It snowed a lot while we were there but we had no problem getting to the slopes and the driveway and roads were always open – loved the garages to put the cars in so that we did not have to shovel snow. The internet pictures described the place perfectly and the owners were very nice, friendly, helpful, easy to contact and a pleasure to work with. We would all go back if the opportunity comes along.

A Wonderful Holiday at Lake Tahoe

The home was well equipped and maintained - from the kitchen to the "high-tech" needs of today's family. The materials used in the remodel were exceptional for a rental property. The furniture throughout was comforable and ample for six adults. We enjoyed gathering in the great room for games - whether football on the tv or on the PS3. Karen and Richard were very helpful and accomodating. There was a basket full of good information about the area. The bus to Heavenly and into town was close by. Our familiy enjoyed our time in Lake Tahoe and if we return, would definitely look at renting this place again.

They Saved Our Christmas!!

Well to make a long story short, My family and I had made reservations at another cabin in Tahoe for the week of Xmas. And a week before the owner emails me that they had a disaster and that I wud need to find other accomodations...I panicked and jumped online scouring every possibility, and to my surprise Karen had an ad up for her cabin bcuz her renters cancelled that same week. Anyway, We ended up with a Better cabin for the same price during the same week I had booked previously! A Beautifully remodeled spacious cabin with a 2-car garage. She had every possible amenity you cud think of already there. A perfect location, not too far from everything. The owner was very helpful and always accessible. Top Notch! I will definetely be back again one day...Thanks Again Karen!!

Wonderful Thanksgiving at this Home

  • Submitted: Dec 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We stayed here for Thanksgiving this year and it was great. There was a huge table (had two extra leafs) that had plenty of room for us all to have a Thanksgiving dinner. The kitchen was great with plenty of pots, pans, utensils, plates for all of us. I sent you a picture of our family Thanksgiving.
Your home is very cozy and the downstairs is like a separate hotel room. The kids could go down there and play while the adults socialized upstairs. There were lots of DVDs and we had movie night as well. Great hikes with amazing views of the lake and valley just minutes away. And the stars at night were so clear and plentiful.
Thank you for all the communication and information. We had a wonderful time and hope to come back again!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you had a great stay and really appreciate the review. Loved the Thanksgiving picture of everyone and have it posted as one of my pictures now.
We hope that you will stay again.
Thank You and Happy Holidays!
