3BR Forest/Park Vacation Rental South Lake Tahoe, California USA
The Tahoe Ski Chalet is a lodge-style home, with three-bedrooms, two-baths and it sleeps eight. It features an over-sized great room with a vaulted ceiling, a gorgeous used-brick FIREPLACE, and an antique Conestoga wagon wheel chandelier. After a long day on the slopes, washing coins in the slots, or shopping the outlets, the experience of sitting in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine or a mug of hot chocolate just can't be beat! The FOOSBALL TABLE is there for hours of entertainment!! When it's time to "veg out" and watch a movie or football game, you'll be impressed with the 50" HD FLATSCREEN TV.
The home is centrally located within five to seven minutes of world-class skiing, casinos, restaurants -- and, of course, beautiful Lake Tahoe. The home is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, protected from traffic and tourist noise; and it's less than one block from a national forest preserve which is perfect for hiking and biking in the summer. For the avid hiker, there is a gorgeous view of Lake Tahoe from the top of the hill. On your way, you'll come to a meandering stream -- complete with falls, where the kids can enjoy water fun while the adults enjoy a picnic lunch. It's perfect for those educational nature hikes. In the winter, many use the same area to go snow shoeing or cross country skiing.
After a long day of sporting activities or shopping at the outlets, try relaxing in the soothing HOT TUB, or lounge on the chalet's large deck while cooking steaks on the gas barbecue. If you prefer to cook inside, the kitchen is fully stocked with microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans, dishes, etc. All you have to do is buy the food. And when the day is done, each of the 3 bedrooms have comfortably appointed KING SIZED BEDS and 32" FLATSCREEN TVs. You'll enjoy the sounds of nature in this truly peaceful setting and home.

Very quiet and great location. House was larger than expected from pictures. Very comfortable.
This house was fantastic! Highly recommend. Great location and very quiet and nice neighborhood. Neighbors homes are a little close but was not a problem for us. Comfort level was great and the living room and bedrooms were larger than expected from pictures. Beds were very soft and comfortable. Wished the bedroom windows had curtains, gets very bright as soon as the sun rises, but just my personal preference.The only minor complaint would be that the house was a bit dusty and a few dead bugs as if perhaps no one had stayed for sometime, which is natural. Also the hot tub water was a bit cloudy which I'm not sure why, I don't know much about balancing hot tub water correctly, but know ones skin who soaked was irritated so I guess it was all good. In no way would I say these minor issues would keep me from renting this little (reasonably priced) gem in the future again.
Really great value for six adults and two all wheel drives - even for us parents paying for all!
The home was really terrific for our party of senior parents, our adult children and an SO - specifically six adults willing to pairwise share 3 comfortable king beds. There was ample space in the cabin and in the hot tub for the six of us slightly smaller than average size adults- size relevant only to the hot tub. In fact we noted how well designed the space is.
The pictures are a very good representation of the accommodations - except that two of the three bedrooms are actually somewhat more spacious than they appear to be in the pictures. The furniture just fits in comfortably the third bedroom, as the pictures show accurately. The second bathroom - not pictured as of our visit - is considerably bigger than the one shown in the pictures. It has plenty of counter space to accommodate the bathroom kits of the four people in the two bedrooms it is closest to. The pictures represent the comfy feel of the home well. The dining area is as pictured. And the wagon wheel light is actually pretty terrific.
As others have noted, the property managers are very responsive to issues that arise during your stay. They are very knowledgeable of the details of the property. Really, call them if you have any issues, as they implore you to do. They will help you resolve it/them. The great room is, well, great! The kitchen space is well represented in the pictures, well designed, well equipped, and easy to cook meals for six in.
One bit of advice to future winter guests - and clearly this applies only to those time when it dumps: Be aware that getting to the home involves driving up a moderate hill/grade. If you are in Tahoe to ski and are hoping for 24+ inches of snow - like we lucked out with - seriously, be sure to have all wheel plus snow tires or chains. Take our advice here. We are northerners - albeit flat-landers - who have considerable experience driving on snow-filled and icy roads. We are glad we had all wheel plus chains (didn't have snow tires). The folks hired to clear property of snow did a great job. However, the local public roads apparently are not very high on the local priority list and were not cleared before we chose to drive down the hill - at 5 mph- to the road to Heavenly, nor was the last quarter mile cleared when we got back. Without proper gear, in snowy conditions you could easily end up in a snowbank instead of the hot tub at the end of a great day of fresh snow. That would be tragic!
Great location for winter fun
The house was in a perfect location for us. Close to everything Tahoe has to offer. The house interior is quite a bit dated. The appliances, furnace, chairs and hot tub seem to be on their last legs. The owners are very nice and prompt.
The owner of the property is amazing, sweet and very attentive. We had absolutely no problems at all. Great location, very clean spacious rooms, restrooms were nice and clean. Kitchen was fully supplied. Way too much character inside the home. The hot tub was the cherry on the top. We are extremely satisfied with our experience and look forward to visit it again. Thank you for making our Lake tahoe experience memorable.
Fantastic, cozy cabin near Heavenly
Wonderful cozy cabin just minutes from Heavenly. The home is well maintained, has an excellent jacuzzi, and a fully stocked kitchen. Everything, including south Lake Tahoe city, grocery store, and Heavenly resort are conveniently close by. The neighborhood is quiet. Cheryl provides great instructions and is easy to get a hold of. Highly recommend this stay. Look forward to being back!
Cute, cozy cabin - exactly what we were looking for!
We had a great stay here! It was super cute and cozy. The hosts were really helpful and got back with lockbox info as soon as they could. There were a few light bulbs out and no complimentary log (as noted in renter agreement), but other than that, our stay was perfect! Would definitely recommend/stay here again! Thanks!
I wish you had called. The cleaners are supposed to check all light fixtures and lamps to make sure the light bulbs are all working. Possibly the prior guests could have moved furniture and not plugged in the lamps again? We've had that happen, but even so, the cleaners should have picked up on that. They also know to leave a log, so they missed that instruction as well. If you had called, I would have had them go back to the house to fix both issues. If they have to return to fix their mistakes, then they learn, if you know what I mean. I'm glad you enjoyed the house. Best regards,
This home is located in South Lake Tahoe, California, which is within minutes of Lake Tahoe, Heavenly Valley, Sierra at Tahoe, Kirkwood, Harrah's, Harveys, Horizon, Caeser's and Lakeside Inn gambling casinos. The home itself is located in popular Montgomery Estates, off Pioneer Trail, which is only 5 minutes from Heavenly. The area is surrounded by National Forest and is great for hiking, mountain biking and snow shoeing. It has a lovely neighborhood and is very peaceful and quiet.
