Christmas Valley House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-9)

Enjoy your vacation in the Red Dog Cabin where you can explore Tahoe's wonderland just by stepping out the back door! Located in scenic Christmas Valley of South lake Tahoe, this house is away from tourist town traffic, but close to everything in town: shopping, entertaining, eating out, plus it's only 20 minutes away from the casinos.

The house is roomy and sunny with large windows that allow you to feel that you are surrounded by nature: Upper Truckee River runs through the backyard of this large 2-acre lot and the mountains and the National Forest are in your view from everywhere.

We have set up the house as our home and we love coming here! We know you will enjoy the art on the walls, the furnishing, and the comfortable bedding.

It is a spacious house and it accommodates 8 people comfortably. The floor plan is very well designed providing lots of privacy with the bedrooms being on the apposite ends of the house. The house has: 3 roomy bedrooms, 2 full newly remodeled bathrooms (done in bright colors in a contemporary style), a fully stocked kitchen, a living room with a fireplace, and a spacious mudroom (charming and extremely convenient for leaving your shoes, jackets, bags, etc before entering the house). The deck overlooks the river, and again, provides you with a great river, mountain, and forest views. The upstairs is not available, it's the owners' private quarters, and it will not be occupied during your stay.

And we can assure you that every visited dog believes that our place and our neighborhood are the ultimate dog paradise. So, bring your pets along! But also please be a responsible pet owner.

Amenities include:

- 1 king bed (master bedroom)

- 1 queen bed (2nd bedroom)

- 2 twin beds and 1 bunk bed (3rd bedroom)

- 1 folding bed (in master bedroom closet)

- parking space for 4 cars

- our kitchen is fully equipped with all you need: cooking pots, nice dishware, utensils, electrical tea cattle, coffee maker, lots of spices, oils, teas, coffee, etc.

- wood fireplace in the living room

- a very nice Hot Tub and Gourmet Gas Grill on the deck

- DISH network HDTV, DVD

- free wireless internet connection (AT&T provider)

- iPod Sound Tower to station your iPod

- we provide linen and double set of towels for all 8 people.

In the Winter:

- right from the backyard you can snowshoe, go sledding, and do cross-country skiing;

- we are perfectly situated being close to several ski resorts: Heavenly (12 miles), Kirkwood (24 miles), Sierra at Tahoe (13 miles);

- close by, there are many great locations for groomed and marked cross country trails.

Please contact me if you are interested in this winter seasonal rental. Thank you!

In the Summer:

- this beautiful cabin is located just 15 min away from the superb sandy beaches of southern shores of Lake Tahoe;

- for those who love hiking, kayaking or canoeing, we are located very close to the magnificent Echo Lakes;

- otherwise, you can bike or hike the Tahoe Rim Trails right out of the house (no driving! );

- you can even bring a horse to our property and ride the trails right out of the house;

- our cabin is a great place to relax and prepare for your Death Ride in July.

Payments can be made via PayPal, personal check, bank funds transfer.

The holiday weekends' reservations require a min of 3 nights stay, regular weekends - 2-night stay.

My name is Rachel and with my husband I live the Bay Area, CA.

I love to travel, work in sculpture, garden, bike, hike, love theater, opera, museums, art, and I really enjoy sharing our beautiful home in Tahoe with our friends and guests.

Rachel purchased this house in 2004

We love our house in Tahoe. It is a very spacious home built on a 2 acres lot, surrounded by the mountains and the US National Forest. South Upper Truckee River runs though our property.

The location is wonderful!. It takes only 20 min getting to everything one would love to do in Tahoe: getting to a couple ski resorts, to Lake Tahoe, to Stateline casinos, to hiking trails at Echo Lakes (with lots of hiking with no driving at all).

This is our second home and we love coming there at least once a month. We recently did lots of major remodeling: completely remodeled the bathrooms, got all new kitchen appliances, painted inside/outside, got new furniture, new mattresses, rebuilt the deck, and got a new spa. All that done within the last 3 years. We made the house very comfortable for ourselves and our guest.

In the winter, sledding and snowshoeing can be done in the back of the house. Heavenly, Sierra-at-Ttahoe, and Kirkwood are the closest ski resorts.

The Winter season lease is also available.

In the summer, if you like hiking, you can go on either short or very long hikes right out of the house (no driving). It is the same when it comes to biking. The beautiful Lake Tahoe Southern shore beaches are within a short 20-min drive.

Winter holiday stay at Red Dog Cabin was fantastic!

Red Dog Cabin is the perfect place for a winter holiday. The house accommodates all ages and is dog friendly. The fully-equipped kitchen makes cooking and eating in a pleasure - especially when getting to town might be difficult when the snow hits. There are sleds available for the gentle slope in the back yard. The hot tub soothes the muscles after sledding. We highly recommend Red Dog Cabin for a family gathering.

My friends and I came here to get away from the city. The place was big enough and the area was beautiful. Also, this house was equipped with everything! We didn't really need to use some of our things because it was already at the house. I would definitely would like to come again. I know my friends would too.

Excellent South Lake Tahoe Cabin

This cabin is a great place - we stayed here last here for a Tough Mudder event and this was our first choice for accommodations this year. There are lots of great cabins in this area, but we were so happy with this place that it was our first choice this year. I'm hoping to return next year as well.

My review from last year:

"Me and four friends ran the Tough Mudder Norcal challenge and we were lucky enough to find Red Dog Cabin. The place is fantastic - very clean and spacious, we had plenty of room. The hot tub was a life saver after the event. The location was good and easy to find. Communications with the owner were very simple and easy; she's a great host. I would definitely recommend this place."

Elegant property with all the required furnishings, extremely clean utilities and quite some character.

The lovely living room, deck with a beautiful view of the mountains and new hot tub/spa make this a gem

Also highly flexible in number of people who can stay with 3 rooms in different configurations

In short highly recommended!

Beautiful secluded cabin

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Red Dog Cabin. It was easy to reach from the Bay Area and located conveniently in Tahoe (close to beautiful Echo Lake, a reasonable drive from attractions on the Western side of the lake, with access to groceries/restaurants etc just a 5-10m drive away but isolated enough that we felt we were really getting away). The house was clean, neat and well taken care of. We enjoyed the deck and jacuzzi, the nearby river, the ample rooms and modern bathrooms. Rachel was responsive at every stage of the experience and very detail oriented (clear instructions about how to get there, checklists for our arrival/departure, self-addressed envelope to send her back the keys, prompt return of the deposit $). We will definitely return.

Really nice house in South Lake Tahoe pretty close to the ski resorts but still feeling away from everything. House is right next to a creek and has a great hot tub. Nice kitchen with all the amenities and generally cosy place.

We brought our doggies too and they had a great time!

I recently stayed at the cabin with 8 of my friends plus one dog. We had been camping in Ukiah California the previous 4 days. It was a pleasure to go to the red dog cabin in beautiful Tahoe and feel like we were going to a home. The cabin was perfect with the large kitchen and counter space and of course we loved the hot tub. I will remember you for future use and will recommend your place to my west coast friends

We had a fantastic time at the Red Dog Cabin! It's a beautiful house with excellent amenities and very nicely put together. It has a wonderful view of the creek and surrounding woods through all the huge windows and a great kitchen for cooking and gathering in. Rachel is a great and accommodating host, we would definitely come back and probably will!
