Overview

South Lake Tahoe Cabin Rental Photos and Description

One-of-a-Kind Amazing House on Acreage Near All~ Privacy- Seclusion & Games too!

This is our family's only vacation home, and a very special one it is. We manage it ourselves so you deal directly with very nice owners who really care about their guests. We feel so fortunate to own this extraordinary property and we love sharing this home with folks who are looking for someplace really special where they can make lasting memories of a lifetime...

We hope that you will be one of the very fortunate folks to discover - and then experience this incredible One-Of-A-Kind vacation home located just blocks from the Heavenly Mountain Ski Resort - yet seemingly located deep in a Secluded Forest. This home is the perfect base camp for skiing, snowboarding, hiking, sightseeing, mountain biking, sailing, water skiing and all Lake Tahoe adventures. Whether you are looking for a vacation home that is close to skiing, the Lake, the Casinos & all the local amenities - or one that is secluded, quiet, peaceful, relaxing ~ or a home with lots of games & entertainment - this amazing vacation home will provide you with the very best of all worlds.

This extraordinary home is perfectly located close to everything important. Nearby is the fabulous Heavenly Village with over 40 unique shops, eateries, and entertainment venues, and the Heavenly Gondola which will take you to the top of Heavenly and all the many amenities there - including the stunning Tamarack Lodge (great food, drinks & stunning views) overlooking the Lake and the longest Zip Line in the USA! You can walk to most places from the cabin & take a cab back home when needed! There is simply no finer location from which to enjoy all the many wonders of Lake Tahoe than this amazing home in Heavenly Valley. Whatever you have planned - this will be the perfect place & perfect setting for your stay.

This estate sized property provides you with the ultimate in Privacy and Seclusion. It is located on 1.3 pristine acres surrounded by acres & acres of Forest Land, all in it's natural state. Kinda like going to Grandma's house in the Forest but without the Big Bad Wolf. If you enjoy the beauty and enchantment of nature - of being in the middle of the forest and trees - of watching wildlife - you will love this place. This property is located at the end of a cul-de-sac on a private road shared with just a few homes. We are the only home on our side of the cul-de-sac and we are located at the very end of the cul-de-sac. It is a Fairy Tale setting while amazingly enough just blocks to Heavenly Skiing and just 1-2 minutes to the Lake and the Casinos! You will not see another vacation property with all these features in such a fantastic close-in location and on acreage - as they are extraordinarily rare! We know of only one. This one!

The private road this Hidden Paradise is on does not even show on most maps. When you are out in the front of the property it feels like you are out in the country. When you are inside the house or out in back - it feels like you are deep in the woods. If you love the outdoors - this is Paradise. Sled, snowboard or mountainbike down your very own hill... right out in back! Watch the action from inside the house. Go Hiking, enjoy the charming Bubbling Creek right out in back in Spring & Summer - or play Hide and Seek in acres of forest. Perfect for children of all ages! Relax and enjoy total peace and tranquility! Imagine yourself in a Hot Tub set in Natural Boulders in the Woods, relaxing with your favorite drink under the Stars & Sky in total privacy and seclusion. After a day of skiing, sledding, hiking, rafting ... it just doesn't get any better than this!

Your beautiful & inviting vacation home is centered around a large custom River Rock fireplace. Every stone was hand selected to match the color scheme. The large All-Gas fireplace puts out enough heat to heat the entire house, or just provide that special ambiance. The interior of the home is beautiful and features a rustic mountain decor with over 100 bears (you might just see a real bear while you're here!)! The home is a spacious 2 stories with 20' ceilings in the Living Room yet it has a warm, comfortable and cozy feel to it. It is ideal for families and smaller groups yet can easily accommodate a larger group.

You will love the Entertainment package. There is something for everyone: WiFi Internet & TV's in almost every room with your favorite programs on cable. You will enjoy a Huge 61' HD BIG SCREEN TV in the great room with DVD player, surround sound and lots of HD movies! You can watch Warren Miller Ski movies when you are done tearing up the slopes. Or pick out an adventure or romantic movie. Lots of kids movies too. The Game Room also has a big screen HDTV plus high quality Foosball, Ping Pong, Shuffleboard and Darts. We have lots of Board Games to play and Books and Magazines to read too, so you will never be bored at Heavenly Paradise.

The 3 BR's are all located upstairs. There is a large MBR suite with a King bed & a Daybed. The 2nd BR has a Queen bed and the 3rd BR has a Queen bed & 2 Twin over Full bunkbeds & a TV/DVD player - Perfect for kids. All the Bedrooms have a Stereo Clock Radio that you can plug your iPod/iPad into. You can set your alarm to wake up to your favorite music.

About Bruce Johnson

We love Lake Tahoe. It is so beautiful year round with so much to do. So much history with Reno, Carson City & Virginia City nearby. Wintertime brings lots of snow for Skiing, snowboarding & snowmobiling. The other seasons are just as wonderful with the Lake, hiking, mountain biking, parasailing & much more. 275 days of sunshine a year! Nearby Casinos provide excitement with gambling and great entertainment. And it can be affordable. Come visit in May, Sept or Oct for our Super Low offseason rates. Any time is a great time to visit Lake Tahoe and stay at Heavenly Paradise - Like going to Disneyland in the mountains.

Bruce Johnson purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Bruce Johnson chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

Heavenly Valley is the best. We have been coming to Lake Tahoe since the early 70's. We met in 1972 on a Lake Tahoe beach. We vacationed here every year. So many attractions and always something new to do or see. Our boys loved coming up to snowboard and play in the snow. It was a second home to them. When this amazing home came up for sale we could not believe how secluded and private it was - yet close to everything. We still cannot believe how lucky we were to be able to buy it! It is a joy to be able to share such a unique and special home in one of the greatest locations on the planet. No wonder Lake Tahoe is the #1 vacation destination in the US & Heavenly the Premier Spot! Kinda like going to Disneyland but with real snow!

What makes this cabin unique

It is quiet, peaceful, private and serene. Yet close to everything. You feel like you are out in the country and forest, yet you can walk to the lake and casinos. For fun & excitement or pure relaxation this home has it all. Staying here makes you smile. Being here makes you happy. Super low rates in May, Sept & Oct make it very affordable. Come see for yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our stay here. So peaceful!! Quiet! Beautiful! Took walks up the hill -- Keller to Saddle -- loop around and back down. Spent lots of time at various beaches, biked the west side trail, gondola ride was awesome, rode the train in Virginia City. Did not have to leave the house to see wildlife: Thur am - bear in yard, Fri am - raccoon in yard, Sat am - coyote in yard. Have photos of all!! We had a great vacation here!

Perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our stay and found this place to be perfect for our family of 6. The location provided easy access to shopping, activities and the lake, but was also very secluded and allowed us to just get away. The kids loved the game room. The kitchen was stocked with all the basic cooking supplies and they had a nice selection of entertainment options (game room, movies, cable, etc...). The beds were all comfortable and everything was clean. Also, Bruce could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We booked this property at the very last minute (day of arrival), and Bruce went out of his way to ensure we were able to get in and made our arrival smooth.

Great Place for family

  • 5 of 5

This house was stocked with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We had ten family members (4 generations) and found this property had it all. The kitchen was the best stocked of any place we've stayed with appliances, dishes and spices etc. There were plenty of towels and pillows. We enjoyed the game room and entertainment center . The hottub was clean and easily accessed. We had a slight problem with the wifi but a call to Bruce was quickly answered and our problem fixed. Location is ideal. The only drawback to this place is all the beds are upstairs. We knew this from the description so not a complaint. We had one member who had some difficulty navigating and it would have been nice if maybe the couch downstairs was a hide a bed. I would certainly recommend this place and look forward to staying again in the future.

Truly a "Heavenly Paradise"

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at “Heavenly Paradise” on multiple occasions over the past several years. I would estimate that it has been greater than 10 times, one week on each occasion. I have stayed here in the winter, spring, summer and fall. There is never a bad time to stay here. I have always found this home to be clean, well prepared and a remarkable home to stay in. My last week there was the end of January 2016. It was spectacular as always. My entire family stayed here including my 3 grandchildren. The close proximity to Heavenly Valley made it possible for us to take the kids out skiing in the morning, bring them home at lunchtime, then my son and I returned in the afternoon to ski an additional 2 to 3 hours. We were able to ski the trees at Heavenly for 5 straight days. The snow was perfect the sun shined 4 out of 5 days. It was truly a fantastic trip. When we first arrived the grandkids wanted to go sledding. Guess where we found the best hill to sled? Right out the back door next to the house. This house sits in a secluded place in the forest so they could sled, laugh, play and not be concerned about bothering anyone.

Over the years I have had multiple opportunities to communicate with the owner, Bruce Johnson. He has always been responsive, concerned and places great pride and satisfaction that his “guests” enjoy their stay. I am greatly anticipating my next vacation at Lake Tahoe and specifically “Heavenly Paradise” and will continue to do so year after year.

"Beary" charming family home, great for ski vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family vacation just before Christmas thanks to this wonderful home. Very thoughtful touches throughout the home made vacation so comfortable and hassle free. The location can't be beat so close to Heavenly, close to town, grocery, yet quiet and private. We had wonderful family meals, enjoyed hot tubbing at the end of long ski days, and really appreciated the game room with foosball and ping pong, among other games! The kitchen had everything we needed. The decor and furnishings were charming and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. It had wifi, cable TV with premium channels, DVD, warm gas fireplace. Our 5 kids enjoyed sleeping together in the room with double bunk beds- great winter fun here! We really have to get one of those giant stuffed bears. :D

Heavenly Paradise is a Delight

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience renting a vacation home and Heavenly Paradise's listing description was spot on accurate regarding the location and layout. All the amenities listed were thoroughly enjoyed. The house was warm and welcoming, clean and well maintained. The owner was very attentive and provided us with activities, attractions, shopping and restaurants in the area. Our family is looking forward to renting this home again and recommend it highly. It is truly a home away from home!
