About Karen

I'm Karen Packman and a real estate agent at Chase International. I first came to Tahoe in 2000 and fell in love with the scenery and activities. Over the past 16 years we've worked hard to provide our guests the best vacation experience.

Karen purchased this house in 2002

Why Karen chose South Lake Tahoe

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.

Our Entire Group Loved This Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place was really incredible! A huge property that easily accommodated 14 adults in town for a college reunion. It had everything we wanted-- a big outdoor deck with an amazing view of Lake Tahoe, a large fully functional kitchen and BBQ for cooking, a pool table, hot tub, and a big common room for watching TV. Karen was very easy to deal with and the process of arriving/departing was seamless. We didn't encounter any issues during our stay. The whole crew agreed that this place was gem. We highly recommend.

Wonderful, spacious, and fun for family of 12

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 (adults and kids) fit perfectly into this spacious, well appointed house with amazing views. The kids loved the big living room and the bear cave / bunk room. The adults loved the spacious kitchen that was perfect to 2+ adults moving around and the dining room that enabled us to eat meals together with ALL of us around 1 table.

Grocery store was just around the corner which was perfect. And drive to Gondola or California was easy enough.

We hope to be back!

Beautiful views and plenty of beds

  • 5 of 5

Took a recent trip to Lake Tahoe for an annual ski trip. Karen's house is tucked away in a beautiful cove that overlooks the lake from its back porth. The house has plenty of room (3 floors) and has a great open setup. The house is also secluded enough where you don't feel like you are on top of your neighbors. Lastly - very close to the local Safeway (2 minutes) which was hugely convenient. Definitely recommend!

Great space for a large family or group

  • 4 of 5

The house was a great space for our large family and I absolutely LOVED the kitchen! Perfect for anyone who likes to do a lot of cooking. We also went in the winter so it was nice to have a hot tub indoors. The hot tub room isn't heated. However, when you're in the hot tub, it's totally fine. A few things to note however: The bedrooms on the first floor and room on the very bottom floor aren't connected to the main heating system however the owner had the foresight to include space heaters, which worked well. The Wi-Fi was also spotty at times but overall, a great house to stay in with a large group!

Spacious, comfortable home in a great location with an incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

A larger group (~13) slept comfortably over an extended weekend stay at this location. The house is exceptional for entertaining a higher number of guests. The spacious kitchen and dining area(s) allow for an atmosphere fit for dining in and relaxing. The added living room with a pool table provided extra comfort and entertainment. The back patio was our favorite spot with a gorgeous view of the cove and distant neighboring homes, we felt at ease enjoying the quiet mornings and lively afternoons without concern of noise pollution. Karen is great to work with! I'll highly recommend this spot to friends and family in the future.
