About Karen

Husband and wife team who lives in Tahoe. I'm Karen Packman and a real estate agent at Chase International. My husband, Jim Richter, is a local contractor who owns his own firm, Richter Construction. We find the properties together, he renovates them, we decorate them and I do all the marketing and rentals. Some people birth children; we birth vacation rentals..

Karen purchased this house in 2002

Why Karen chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

Centrally located with great lake views and lots of space. Close to the best beaches in Tahoe, casinos, and Heavenly ski resort.

What makes this house unique

I lived in Philadelphia suburbs and saw this home in the internet and dreamed about it. 6 months later I bought it! It has a unique setting with front yard. It has great entertaining spaces.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time. Loved the house. We're coming back in the winter for skiing.

House was beautiful, entry not so much

  • 5 of 5

My family of 12 enjoyed staying at this comfortable home which had a gorgeous view of the lake. We weren't prepared, however, for the 30 steep steps to reach the front door and we had a family member which had difficulty. The property listing should describe the entry from the street more specifically. It was also difficult to find the driveway so maybe an outside light at the street would help.

The kitchen was fantastic and the island afforded many chefs to be cooking at once. There is a fan/light in front of the door that seems like it was there to be over a table, not in an entryway as many of the men in our group almost got hit by it. I suggest replacing that fan with a new one that isn't so low.

I would recommend this property although the $400 cleaning fee seems double for the amount of work to clean the house.

Great Views, Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of 16. The kitchen was great and we were able to cook most of our meals at the house. We had some bad weather hit us which kept us more inside that we would have liked but the big living room and pool table gave us plenty of room to spread out. The views from the back balcony are gorgeous and the front lawn area is great for lawn games. Karen was easy to work with and we didn't have any problem with the house or amenities on the property. I would definitely recommend this place as a great spot for larger groups who want to be close to south lake.

Fun property, family friendly and amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Karen's house is a big wow with amazing views. The house is situated on the Nevada side, where everything seems more spacious and private yet it is still close to everything. We visited the beach, Heavenly, and a free sledding hill! There are plenty of rooms, comfy beds, and a perfect yard for the toddlers to play in the snow. It is perfect for multiple families! We were 4 families with babies, toddlers and youngsters. The house was family friendly with a great big kitchen in the middle of it. We cooked, grilled and ate out at nearby restaurants. We parked 4 cars in side-by-side tandem in the driveway, which took coordination but doable. Communication with Karen was excellent. She coordinated an early and late check-out. We hope to stay again!

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this home 10 stars, I would. We rented for a week for a family reunion, topping out at 14 people from four families. We used every inch of this beautiful home. The front yard was great for games of frisbee, playing catch and horseshoes. We'd drink our coffee on the spacious deck while listening to the birds every morning. After a day at the nearby beach, we cooked fabulous meals in the spacious kitchen and had cocktail hour out on the deck gazing at beautiful Lake Tahoe. After dinner, we enjoyed walks thru the neighborhood and seeing the interesting houses and views. Later we enjoyed the hot tub and gathering in the large living room. Finally we'd each retire to our space, which comfortably fit us all. This house has it all and then some.

Dream Kitchen in a Gorgeous Mountain Home.

  • 5 of 5

I choose this house after looking at many because of the dream kitchen. I hosted a 40th birthday party for my husband and cooked for all our friends. The kitchen was gorgeous with incredible cabinets, counters and tile. The large range/oven was a real asset as we had a group of 16.

The house worked out great for the weekend. Loved the big back deck and lake view.

The home was clean, well maintained & accurately represented in the listing pictures & description. Plenty of space for all. The owner was responsive to our questions & needs.

We'll be back soon.
