About Karen Medalen

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 use our home as often as we can 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 choose 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

Why Karen Medalen chose Heavenly Valley

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!

What makes this townhome unique

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.

Beautiful Home, Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week on our honeymoon and were absolutely pleased with everything. It's very beautiful, and there are plenty of things to do in the house (ie board/card games, TV, movies, PS3, Netflix, fast WIFI, etc). It is close to the lake and there are lots of things to do nearby. The owners were good enough to take the time to talk with us and give us ideas of activities that we could do while we were there. They are very familiar with the area and had tons of great ideas. They also had a coupon book there with deals for food and fun. We had a blast and would recommend it to anyone who is considering staying here.

successful vacation with teenage boys

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to relax after the thrills of Lake Tahoe. The location is near Heavenly and there are nearby trails to hike or bike with amazing views of both Tahoe and Minden. It is less crowded than staying in "town" and has much bigger and better accommodations. We enjoyed seeing deer including a fawn in the back yard. The balconies (2) are great to enjoy the cool evening air or light up the barbecue. The sound bar and Google t.v. were a hit with our teenage boys. Since the master bedroom is on the first level, we maintained our privacy and let the boys have their own space. Everything was clean, updated and comfortable. We would definitely recommend staying here and I'm sure we will return for another great visit.

Beautiful and Fun

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. It is beautiful and we had so much fun! There are tons of hiking trails and sight scenery is beautiful. The lake is gorgeous, clear and blue. My husband and I had so much fun there we can't wait to go back. The house was clean and beautiful! The house is also conveniently located. It is in a beautiful spot on the mountain side, but not too far away from the Lake, restaurants or other tourist attractions.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
A perfect place for a get-away - full of amenities, well-stocked, clean and well maintained. Great technical support from owner on electronics (for neophyte user). Easy access to the Tahoe Rim trail for hiking, quick access to a Nevada lift at Heavenly. Fun and relaxing!

Excellent location and great amenities.

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.
