Near the casinos at Stateline and the Heavenly Valley Ski Resort, the cabin is centrally located and close to beaches and lake recreation areas. Cross country skiing in the forest is just down the street.
'Jerry’s Place' is a charming, cozy Tahoe classic. The 1960s home is tucked up among pine-lined streets in the quiet neighborhood of Gardner Mountain.
The cabin comfortably accommodates up to eight people both for work and play and is designed to make your stay a pleasant experience.
You'll love the easy open flow between the kitchen/dining area and living room. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas burning stove, microwave and dishwasher.
Other kitchen essentials provided include a coffee maker, pots and pans, bake-ware, mixer, blender, dinnerware, utensils, and wine glasses. (A visit to the Picchetti Winery South Lake Tahoe tasting room to pick up some wine is a must.) Savor meals in the cozy dinning area for eight or on the deck under the sun umbrella or the stars. Bon appetite!
There are three separate sleeping rooms in the cabin. plenty of pillows and blankets, linens are optional. The master bedroom with a king sized bed is an intimate upstairs spot perfect to rest and relax...read a bestseller .
The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and looks out onto a pine tree garden with a chop wood fence.
The third bedroom is called “the kid’s room.” The two twin beds are in a large room so the youngsters can spread out and kick back, play board games or retire to an evening of zzzzz's!
The bathroom is stocked with soaps, shampoo and conditioner, and a hair dryer. The ½ bath is small but with up to eight guests...a real blessing! It's really cute too, tucked upstairs with a pocket door, very near to the Master bedroom,
The washer and dryer are just waiting for your dirty clothes. (You will most certainly have some if you hike in the high Sierra, spend the day at the lake, bike ride on or off trail, or mount a horse and clip clop to Fallen Leaf Lake. Not to mention the days on the slopes.)
So, fire-up the gas grill while your clothes are washing and grill some burgers or fresh tomatoes and other veggies. There is a gourmet Raley’s Superstore five minutes away. Yum!
During the chilly months you may put a log in the wood-burning fireplace and in the spring and summer enjoy outdoor dining on the deck surrounded by pine trees and an .occasional saucy Blue Jay.
When the temperature plunges rest assured at the end of the day you’ll stay nice and warm with the central heater throughout the cabin.
Jerry’s Place is located two blocks away from South Lake Tahoe High School. The school is nestled next to the El Dorado National Forest and you can access the track for exercise and the soccer and baseball fields.
A few blocks down Clement there is a trail that winds its way to Fallen Leaf Lake and into the Desolation Wilderness and is direct access to the El Dorado National Forest, it is a pleasant hike of about 45 minutes. The trailhead leads into a very gently rolling hill and meadow area which is perfect for an after dinner hike or some cross-country skiing. (Keep your eyes peeled for critters.)
Don't drive to the slopes! The ski bus is just down the street from the cabin.
Tahoe is California’s jewel and playground. The South Lake area offers a myriad of festivals, art shows, shops, restaurants (including a classic Irish pub with frequent Celtic music concerts), And don't miss the activity at Valhalla where they have frequent movie nights or concerts in the Boat House and actives for children in the summer months. Outdoor activities like parasailing, snow and water skiing, nature walks, dog sledding, and sleigh rides, backpacking trails, dog friendly restaurants (deck noshing), snowshoeing, ice skating at Stateline. beaches, biking, boating, tours, historic sites such as Vikingholm, cruises, fishing, golfing, Camp Richardson, horseback riding, rafting and so much more there’s not enough room. The closest 'playgrounds' are: Baldwin Beach, Pope Beach, Camp Richardson Resort Beach, El Dorado Beach, Kiva Beach (a.k.a. dog Nirvana) . The Taylor Creek Nature Area is a must for the kids and the salmon run in the fall is pretty spectacular. Regan Beach, Tallac Picnic Area.
The cabin is located up the hill from the 3.9 mile Pope-Baldwin Bike Path, a bike-only trail through aspen and pine. The bike path is kid friendly and runs through the Taylor Creek Nature Area.
In the fall, the golden aspens will take your breath away. You’ll spot lots of critters on early morning rides. The trail hugs Highway 89 and leads west to Emerald Bay.
There’s also the South Lake Tahoe Bike Path, also paved, which runs in the opposite direction through the city of South Lake Tahoe and then on to Nevada and the casinos.
And if you’re a coffee nut, Alpina Gourmet Coffee is down the hill from Jerry’s. The knotty pine café has the best roasted coffee in the basin and is reported to have a ghost. If you visit during autumn, especially during the height of the yellow and crimson leaf display, you’ll have a chance to see the Alpina apparition!!!

My father-in-law built the cabin next door to Jerry's Place. We always admired the workmanship in Jerry's classic expanded A-Frame and finally bought it about 20 years ago to join the two properties.
Jerry's is named after its builder who constructed about half a dozen homes with the same floor plan and solid, well-built construction in South Lake Tahoe on Gardener mountain.
Our extended family has grown up and now we really just need the original cabin. We've decided to share Jerry's Place with others.
We have spent so many happy days here—eating family meals, coming home after hikes and skiing, playing at the beach and celebrating family events.
The cabin offers the best of both worlds. When you're on the property the every day hubbub is a million miles away. And yet, shopping, and full city amenities are just blocks away.
The other charming thing about Jerry's is that Gardener Mountain (where it's located) that it is a filled with year round residents. This keeps the area quiet and friendly.
We love Jerry's and are delighted to share our home with you.
A few years ago I became dependent on a wheelchair and there is plenty of room to get around. The tall windows to the ceiling give a wonderful view of the beautiful blue sky and pines just outside. The marvelous fireplace is vented to give additional warmth to the room and the roaring fire is so cozy. Wonderful family times have been had during summers on the deck.
Jerry's Place has a large, easy access down stairs with only two low steps up from the outside.
The downstairs has two of the bedrooms, the full bath ( with dual hand bars in the bath), kitchen, living and dining area, and opens onto a beautiful deck where mountain jays zip through the air competing with other birds, squirrels chatter and chipmunks scamper.
I can enjoy the mountains and have complete access at Jerry's.
The property is boat and RV friendly and is on a larger corner lot. There is a large paved parking area a driveway and garage.
The off street parking can be a life saver when it snows because you can't park on the street because of the plowing.
One of the things I really like about Jerry's is the access to the El Dorado National Forest. About half a mile down the street the neighborhood ends and the forest begins.
There are gentle slopes there for the kids to sled down and it's a prime and less frequented cross country ski area.
It's a special treat to rise early, walk in the forest and spy the wild life.
