About the property

4 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sleeps 8

Aspenhall is a 1940s-era rustic mountain getaway just three blocks from the shore of Lake Tahoe. Located in a quiet, comfortable neighborhood in the community of South Lake Tahoe, Aspenhall is an excellent central location for year-round activities in one of the world’s most beautiful natural vacation destinations. In addition, all the conveniences of shopping, restaurants, coffee houses, etc. are within easy walking distance.

Inside and out, Aspenhall retains the look and feel of old Lake Tahoe. Knotty pine plank paneling, vaulted ceilings, rugged fixtures and mountain style furnishings combine with modern upgrades to make this a cozy retreat where your spirit can be renewed.

With four bedrooms, Aspenhall can accommodate up to 8 people, but it can also provide roomy comfort for a single family or couple.

Great cozy old-school cabin

  • 5 of 5

We are two families with four boys, and this cabin was a pretty perfect fit. To begin with, the location is ideal; close to the lake, just a couple minutes from the Safeway, and right near Heavenly resort. It's in a nice, quiet neighborhood with similar cabins.

When we arrived everything was clean, and organized in the way that was laid out in the comprehensive overview document that was sent before our stay. In fact, Jeff was very responsive and accommodating throughout.

You enter into the living room area, which has nice comfy chairs and a couch, and has a gas fireplace set to a thermostat. There is an additional wall heater, and between the two the place heats up very efficiently. The kitchen is open to the living room area, and has most everything you'd want by way of appliances. Everything worked well. The clothes washer/dryer are also right off of the kitchen..

The door to the backyard is off of the kitchen, and opens onto a nicely sized space that I would think in summer is a great place to hang out and bbq. The hot tub is in the back, and was nicely hot in a short amount of time. It will take a bit of noodling to dial in the temp you like, but when the cover is kept on, it'll stay where you want it. We had a small dog with us, and he got a kick out of chasing the squirrels that darted around. The yard is fully enclosed in case you do have a pooch.

The bedrooms are two on the main floor (one with a full, and one with bunks), and the full bathroom is also there. Two more bedrooms and a half bath are upstairs for the adults. I won't say that the mattresses are what you might have at home, but they worked perfectly well.

Nothing is ever completely perfect, and there were a few things that we'd recommend checking on before you settle in too much; there wasn't shampoo or soap in the shower, there wasn't any Kleenex, and the laundry detergent was missing. Small things that were solved with a quick trip to Safeway.

We'd definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a rustic, old-school Tahoe place to stay. It's very reasonably priced, and just felt very warm and inviting to be in.

Fantastic place, great area, everything you would need!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great house, lots of space, large backyard, hot tub, and close to the shops! The only thing that I would change is adding another bathroom.

Wonderful cabin centrally located

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great for our family of four. With four bedrooms and the extra half bath there was plenty of room for everyone. It's located near the South Lake Safeway, the city sports and rec center, and bowling. It's a short walk to the lake, and close to our family's favorite beach Zephyr Cove, just across stateline. The backyard deck is a lovely place for having your morning coffee.

Nice family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family 8 plus our puppy enjoyed our stay very well. Nice little cabin with a beautiful and big backyard. Prefect to lay on grass to get a little sun kissed. Jacuzzi was very relaxing after a long day. We walked to the lake which was just about a ten minute walk. It was nice to see bunnies, chipmunks and squirrels just running around the area. Nice family getaway.
