About Heidi Menard

Own and operate an interior design business in the bay area. Looks matter, and we work hard to keep the house looking and feeling nice!

Heidi Menard purchased this house in 2005

Why Heidi Menard chose Tahoe Vista

We enjoy this home as a second property and maintain it as such. It is a wonderful retreat from our normally over-programmed lifestyles. This house has all the creature comforts you want in a vacation home…quality beds, nice linens, fully equipped kitchen and tasteful furnishings. It easily accommodates 2 families. Whether you chose to go out, or stay in, you'll be surrounded in comfort!

What makes this house unique

Designed for family living, this house has safety gates for toddlers, games and snow toys for kids and televisions and movies for everyone's enjoyment. Plenty of parking in the garage and driveway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Heidi,

The stay was great, we loved coming back to your comfortable and spacious house after a full day of skiing at Squaw. My wife and her friend appreciated the availability and selection of the cooking gear.

The house was very kids-friendly, location was excellent too. Thank you for providing us with an opportunity to have a nice Christmas vacation.

Great house in Kingswood Estates

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend staying at this home in Kingswood Estates. The house is clean, roomy and has all the amenities you need. The bedrooms all have comfortable beds and there's even two master bedrooms which is a huge plus. It's in a nice quiet neighborhood and conveniently located, only a short 4 minute drive to the lake and grocery store. It was perfect for our group of 7 adults and 2 kids but you could definitely fit a couple more people in there comfortably. We are already planning our next trip to Tahoe at this great house!

Getaway for the family

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of our large coming together for the weekend and the cabin was perfect! There was plenty of space for everyone, very clean, and updated! The location is great, close to town yet still has a charming "in the mountains feel". Cant wait to come back and stay there again!

Mountain biking Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group from all over CA meet up for a weekend of mountain biking. The cabin was clean, comfy, and had everything we needed for an awesome getaway. The BBQ worked great, onsite laundry kept our riding kits fresh, and the proximity to Northstar,local trails, the lake, and Safeway couldn't be beat! Can't wait to come back.
