Pioneer Trail Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths

Our four bedroom, three baths, Lake Tahoe Vacation Rental is located off of Pioneer Trail/Washoan Drive in South Lake Tahoe. Our cabin is CLEAN with upgraded furnishings and amenities. Our Vacation Rental Home sleeps 8, however, we limit occupancy to 6 adults. We allow up to 8 people if your group includes children. Casa Tahoe's location, Just 6 miles from Heavenly Ski Resort, Stateline Casinos, and Lake Tahoe, makes it a perfect all-season getaway for couples or your entire family. And don't forget about the family dog!

We are a family and pet-friendly property. We have an 11-year-old and a Labrador, so the cabin has been stocked for their enjoyment and our ease of staying there ourselves. We have a high chair, portable crib (with linens), baby bath, toddler blow up bed, books, movies, and games appropriate for ages toddler through adult.

Your well behaved pet is welcome. Our backyard is fully fenced and safe for your pet. Your dog will appreciate the dog bed and treats we always keep at the cabin. We often take our dog for a walk down to the Truckee River or on the Forest Service Trail starting just a block from the cabin.

During the winter season, major ski resorts like Heavenly, Sierra, Kirkwood, Homewood, Alpine, and Squaw are easily accessible from our South Lake Tahoe Cabin Rental. Take advantage of the beginning ski classes for your kids or daycare available at many of the local ski resorts while you enjoy the slopes. There are also nearby locations for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Some of our neighbors start their cross-country skiing excursions in the meadow behind our cabin.

Your kids will enjoy sledding at the snow parks, or we have a slope in the meadow behind our back fence which will sufficiently entertain them. There are (plastic) sleds in the garage, so it is hassle free to just walk around the house and send them racing down the small hill.

Amenities like our wood burning stove as well as a private, hot tub on the back deck outside the master bedroom add to the ambiance of this Lake Tahoe Cabin Rental. And yes, you can use it in the winter!

Our back deck affords a stunning view of the mountains, or just stay in the living room as the full-length windows provide you with a gorgeous view.

If gambling is your game, the casinos are located at Stateline, just a few miles up Pioneer Trail, or enjoy the many extra amenities we provide for your entertainment at the cabin such as cable TV's, games, books, Wii and an extensive video and DVD library. We have high-speed internet but bring your own laptop for cable hookup or wireless. (SORRY COMPUTER NOT PROVIDED).

We've thought of everything you will need to make your stay at Casa Tahoe comfortable and easy. We provide many extra amenities such as quality linens and a kitchen equipped with top quality cookware and appliances. You will find upon arrival spices, condiments, staples, coffee, tea, and breakfast items. The cabin is tastefully decorated with new furniture and bedding and our downstairs bedroom/recreation room provides a special get-away for the teens.

Please note our South Lake Tahoe Cabin is located in a very quiet, peaceful, wooded neighborhood. Sound carries far in this high altitude air, so we ask our guests to keep their voices down while using the back deck, back yard and hot tub. This includes no use of the hot tub or deck between 10:00 PM and 8:00 AM (This is now an El Dorado County Vacation Rental Owners Regulations). We also strictly enforce the maximum occupancy noted above to comply with El Dorado Couny Vacation Rental Owners Regulations.

About Frank Overton

We purchased Casa Tahoe in 2003, however, we have been Vacation Rental Owners in South Lake Tahoe for 16 years. We are a small family, (just one child) but visit our cabin at least once a month, and invite friends and family to join us.

Frank Overton purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Frank Overton chose South Lake Tahoe

We love the South Lake Tahoe area. We enjoy the cabin year round, snowboarding in the winter, the lake in the summer, and the quiet months of October and May are acutally my favorite! There are always festivals to attend, or we enjoy just spending time with family, friends, and our dogs.

What makes this cabin unique

We have lots of space for family and friends. We love entertaining. I have equipped the cabin with the cookware I need for making gourmet meals for a crowd. I have also focused on equipping the cabin with entertainment (books, games, videos) that all ages would enjoy. We are on a quiet, residential street, with great views of the mountains. It's fun and relaxing at the same time. From our location off of Pioneer Trail, you can get to the cabin easily from Sacramento or the Bay Area without having to drive through town. At the same time, it does not take long to get to Heavenly, the casinos, the lake beaches, shopping or restaurants from our cabin via Pioneer Trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WHAT DID YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT THE PROPERTY? The view was magnificent, as well as proximity to the trails. The yard was great, our ciy dog was in heaven. Perfect size, cozy yet not cramped at all. Loved the selection of movies & games. Have rented nice places before that are great, but when you go to fix a meal, you fund one sharp knife and one spatul. I was stunned and thrilled to find a full euipped kitchen!! That (as a cook) just made my vacation.

Comfortable, plenty of room, pet friendly, close to local eateries, shops and Heavenly Ski Resort.

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the week for a family wedding. The home was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the 4 bedrooms and large backyard that was fenced for our dog. The property was in a good neighborhood and was very quiet. It was also close to many local eateries, shops and the ski resort. We would definitely stay there again.

The PERFECT Tahoe Getaway at Casa Tahoe!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Casa Tahoe! Our family of 5 adults and 1 toddler had plenty of room and then some! Casa Tahoe was so comfortable we felt right at home. The fully stocked kitchen made it easy for us cook meals. Our furry friends couldn't have been happier as well. A big fenced back yard, beautiful places to walk and swim so close to Casa Tahoe made for a very doggie friendly vacation! After a fun day at the beach we came back to hot showers, and comfy beds! The owners Frank and Linda were extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations, dog friendly Tahoe places, and home questions. We couldn't have been happier and look forward to our next Casa Tahoe stay.

Thank you Casa Tahoe,

The Cullum Family

Great place to make your family memories....

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for families to spread out, including your well behaved pets. The two 14 year old boys made the basement their "man cave", which was great. The home is extremely well stocked, from the kitchen to entertainment. Lovely location as well.

If I had to pick one thing for potential improvement, it would be the queen mattresses. However, we'll definitely utilize this property again.

Lastly, the home owners were wonderful to work with. We shared several texts leading up to, and during, our stay.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful weekend staying at Casa Tahoe in early December 2015. There was more than enough space for four adults and two pre-teens. We were very lucky and had lots of snow. The kids made a huge snowman, went sledding behind the house, they even used the hot tub. We took so many beautiful family photos with the view in the background and even while it was snowing. The house was very well stocked. It had everything we needed to make our meals. Thank you so much to Frank and Linda for sharing your home. We had a wonderful time and we hope to come back again!

Beautiful home, well equipped kitchen, awesome movie collection!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us stayed in this beautiful home in March and it was a great experience. The home is well maintained, beautiful, and is well equipped to handle all of your vacationing needs. It's about a 15-20 min. drive to the California tram at Heavenly. I'm definitely looking forward to booking this home again in the future!

Good family house with great view

  • 4 of 5

The house is located in a nice, quiet neighborhood near to local skiing area (we were there to ski!). Fenced in backyard was nice for the dog and kids. The view out back was wonderful. It was really nice to have three bathrooms for 8 people. House was clean and mostly well-stocked. Lots of games and videos. Large living room. There is a gate the separates the basement from the main floor which is nice when you have young kids. Only bummer was hot tub not working properly. The owner was quick to respond to our texts about it but it never quite warmed up correctly. Would recommend for families!
