Highland Woods House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10, Great Backyard with View of Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe View! Location... Location... Location!

This beautiful home is in a quiet neighborhood (Highland Woods) and has spectacular lake and meadow views. Once you step foot through the door, the first thing you'll notice is how relaxing & serene the cabin is. Backing up into a meadow, it is ideal for people looking for an authentic, tranquil Tahoe experience. But keep in mind that it is just minutes from downtown South Lake Tahoe. There you'll find everything you want from an activity standpoint: beaches, state-line casinos, ski resorts (Heavenly), great restaurants, fun shopping, live music and much more.

The cabin is very peaceful and only minutes to trails, skiing, shopping, gambling, and limitless outdoor recreation. Imagine relaxing on the large deck viewing the lake or getting cozy beside the river-rock fireplace. There just isn't a better location in South Shore!

Equipped with WiFi and HD television, the cabin has everything you'll need. The great room is perfect for family gatherings. There is a Weber Grill in the backyard for barbecuing. The garage has a ping-pong table and bikes.

It is ideal year-round. We can't decide which season is best.

This cabin has been used for almost 50 years by family & friends. It has been the host of countless family reunions and even wedding ceremonies/receptions. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. It's simply the best.

About Tim Jordan

This amazing property was purchased over 40 years ago by a family that truly believes in the true Tahoe spirit and experience. This is not your typical Tahoe rental. It has a lot of character from all the TLC that has been put into it over the years.

Tim Jordan purchased this house in 1976

Why Tim Jordan chose South Lake Tahoe

This property has felt decades of "one family love." It's an iconic beauty that never gets old. Friends & family rave about how comfortable, soothing and warm it is compared to other places they've stayed in Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

Great bike paths and hiking through the meadow! State-Line casinos nearby as are ski resorts (Heavenly, Sierra-At-Tahoe, etc.). Great restaurants are less than a mile away.

Simply the perfect place to unwind, decompress and leave the complicated urban hustle. You won't find a more soothing place to spend your time in Tahoe.

Great family home, good value, was everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We visited for 5 days at the end of September 2016 and had a wonderful time. The home was clean, well equipped, and the owner was reasonable and responsive whenever we called. Great view of a wooded meadow with the lake in the background. This home is highly recommended. We were a group of 6 but had friends who were staying nearby visit for a lovely bar-be-que on the great deck. Dinner seating at the table was limited to 6 (8 if you snuggle) but no one minded in the least. Neighborhood was very nice, the home is several blocks off the busy street so no road noise. Very close to stores and casinos. Will repeat the next time we're in South Lake Tahoe!

Great place for a family vacation! Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family retreat this past weekend and this place was great! Tim reached out before we got there to make sure we knew how to access, even though we already knew from the app, that was much appreciated. The kitchen is stocked with everything necessary and the house accommodated 8 adults and 3 little ones. The backyard is really nice, charcoal bbq Weber ready, lots of space for kids to run and right on a hiking trail. You can see the lake in the distance and the sunset too. The house is close to the main beach, El Dorado, or Pope/Baldwin beaches if you're going in the summer. Great value for us, we'll definitely be back!

Mr. Tim,

thanks for letting us stay at your cozy cabin, and thanks again for being veteran friendly. We had an excellent time, our kids were crying when we left. Your backyard was spectacular, even had a visit from a bear seen walking along the edge of the forest. The house had everything we needed and more, plenty of beds, clean towels, amenities, etc. Central to south lake tahoe, near everything but away from the hustle of main street enough to feel like you are alone out there. Thanks again!

Memorable weekend :)

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay July 22. We had four couples, although we had to rearrange some rooms to make them functional for us we had everything we needed. Tim, the owner was very prompt in responding and has kept the place looking nice! The view was spectacular and outside fire pit and chairs were nice and relaxing. We even used the bikes he provided. The encounters with wildlife are out of this world with this location! If your looking for a great stay for this price I would recommend you book this rental.

Great value!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and had plenty of room for a large group. It was fully stocked with all the comforts of home . We made good use of the backyard which had a fire pit, BBQ, and lots of chairs to relax on with a great view! The owner, Tim, was also always just a text or call away and would always respond immediately. I only took one star away because the cabin needed a little cleaning. The couch could definitely be replaced and the bath tubs were really scummy. But for such a great price it wasn't a big deal. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Thanks so much for letting us stay at your place for a fun getaway!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lynn! You're welcome back any time! We've now replaced the great room couch and have updated the pictures on our homeaway site to show it. With regards to the "needing a cleaning and scummy bath tubs", I'm truly uncertain how this could have occurred. Our cleaner who's been with us for ten years does an amazing job! The bathrooms / tubs are dated but can't envision them as scummy unless our cleaner missed them upon your arrival. I've attached a few pictures of our bathrooms / tubs for future renters to see. We may be updating both bathrooms this fall!!! Thank you for your feedback!!!
