About the property

Amazing - in the Forest Near All- Ski/Board out the back ~ Kitchen- Dream Home

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 Fantastic 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/HD player, fantastic surround sound with Klipsch Speakers and Hundreds of DVD/BLURAY 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. There is also a huge selection of music disks. The Game Room also has a big screen HDTV plus high quality Foosball, Ping Pong, Shuffleboard and Darts. We have a huge assortment of Board Games to play and our Library features lots of Books and Magazines to read too, so you will never be bored at Heavenly Paradise.

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 South Lake Tahoe

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 have been having the best vacation ever! We've seen lots of wonderful things! The squirrels & chipmunks are bigger here than Ohio! The Blue Jays are bluer. Seriously a lot bluer. We saw lots of shooting stars while enjoying the hot tub. The pine cones are huge. Ohio pine cones are tiny! We had lots of fun in the game room. The lack of humidity in Lake Tahoe made everyone's hair look amazing. We wish we could stay forever! Thank you for the wonderful stay. We loved it here.

Wonderful and Quiet Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation getaway! Loved the peaceful quite surroundings overlooking the forest and no homes on either side of the property. We spent almost all of our stay on the balcony aka 'observation' deck morning & night. We saw coyotes running and howling right on the bluff in back of the home, a large falcon or eagle (not sure) but wing span was huge!. The best was seeing a bear strolling not to far from the balcony enough to take some video, it was awesome. The home came with everything we needed too! Lots of fun with ping pong for sure! Bruce was easy to work with and very attentive to our inquiries. We will definitely be back. It was a wonderful place. Can't wait for our next trip. Thank You Bruce!

Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

Myself, and 6 others, (family and friends) spend a week at this very nice house for a Tahoe ski trip. The house has everything you need (comfort wise) as well as a great location to Heavenly ski resort, downtown South Lake Tahoe, and shopping (plus casinos). I would highly recommend staying here. A great place that we all really enjoyed staying at.

Serenity, comfort, & fun, all in one package!

  • 5 of 5

The property was spacious, and comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed as cooking enthusiasts. Enjoyed the outdoor hot tub with no views of neighbors. Sooo close to everything, but felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. Excellent communication between the host and guests. Would stay here again for sure!

Comfortable, User Friendly and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home over Christmas with another family and we were very comfortable. We have a 15 month old and the other couple has a two year old which usually presents a lot of hurdles but this home was so user friendly for us. They had baby gear, including but not limited to a pack and play, high chair and baby gate for the stairs. We also loved how quiet the house was. No creaks that wake a sleeping baby, you could be in the living room or garage with music or the tv on and no one was disturbed.

The garage has been converted to a game room and we loved it. The hot tub was a huge bonus and was very clean. It is also nice the the property backs up to open property so you can hike or sled if the weather is good.

The kitchen had everything any chef could need and made preparing our holiday meals a breeze.

Great location just off the main drag with an easy uber to heavenly (4 minutes to be exact) and easy access to the rest of Tahoe.

Definitely recommend!
