Beautiful Tahoe Chalet - Near Lake, Views, Amenities, Pics

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults)

This chalet style home has a true Lake Tahoe ambiance. It is located near everything (e.g., 5 mi to Heavenly Ski Resort and Stateline world class entertainment, restaurants and nightlife), yet in a wooded area near a meadow with views of Heavenly and a small lake view through the trees. It is in an upscale neighborhood which has underground utilities and custom homes. A beautiful bike path meanders through the neighborhood and adjacent meadow. As an added bonus, it is one of the first neighborhoods in Tahoe to get plowed after a snow storm.

The living room has a tall (soaring over 20 feet) knotty-pine open beam ceiling, wood-burning Swedish cone fireplace (with a gas starter for ease in getting the fire going), comfortable sectional sofa, leather recliner, game cabinet, TV with DVD, and wonderful floor-to-ceiling double-paned windows. In winter, it is the ideal place for watching the snow fall on the tall pines while you sip hot chocolate after skiing or snowboarding. In summer, it is also the ideal place for having a BBQ with friends and family as you enjoy fresh mountain air.

The charming cabin themed kitchen has everything you would need including full size fridge, stove with oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, ample counter top space, and all cookware, plates, and utensils.

The downstairs master includes a comfortable log-pole canopy queen bed & Tahoe pine furnishings. Cabin themed rocking chair, log-pole lamps and cabin decor set the tone for your mountain getaway. The second bedroom also has a log-pole queen bed, and this bedroom has a sliding glass door leading out to a raised trex deck in the fenced backyard (in winter, build a snowman or two in the backyard!) Also downstairs is one of two full bathrooms, as well as a laundry area including a newer washer and dryer.

Upstairs you will find a large yet cozy loft area with 4 log-pole single beds, (as well as a double futon). The upstairs is styled in Americana-cabin style with beautiful quilts and also a private desk and chair area where you can set up a laptop. For convenience there is an upstairs full bathroom with tub and shower. Fresh towels will be laid out for you.

The cabin has a charming, Tahoe-style atmosphere with knotty-pine ceilings throughout the home, views of the mountains and a peek through the trees of Lake Tahoe. It is truly in a wonderful location, which you have to experience to appreciate. The best part is you have all of the comforts and conveniences of home in one of the most beautiful places on earth - Lake Tahoe.

Why Lori chose Highland Woods

I bought this home because of the beautiful location near Lake Tahoe, access to winter & summer sporting areas, and world class entertainment. I have always found serenity and peace in the Lake Tahoe area, and I chose a home in a neighborhood that has Tahoe mountain views and a peek of the lake through the tall green pine trees. This home is accessible, relaxing, and convenient to everything Lake Tahoe has to offer.

What makes this house unique

Some of the unique benefits include feeling 'away from it all' while you watch the blue jays in the pine trees or the gorgeous mountain views. Yet, this home has easy access to shopping, whether it be the 7-11 around the corner, the Safeway nearby, or factory stores at the 'Y'. It also has access to recreation areas, beaches, hiking, skiing, gaming, movie theaters, and spas. If all you want to do is stay in and watch a movie, there are two flat screen tv's and a cozy fireplace. It is truly a place to relax, enjoy friends and family, and make fond memories.

Cute cabin in South Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this cabin. The owner was very nice and easy to communicate with. She was very responsive and I love the instruction notes that were left everywhere around the house. South Lake Tahoe is really pretty in the summer...overall we had a great weekend!

Spacious property with great communication.

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, Lori's communication was the best I've had compared to any previous hosts. She emailed me well in advance, with detailed instructions about the property, where everything was located, and how to get in. On the day of, and during our stay, she regularly checked in to let us know of any updates regarding the property or her contact information.

Additionally, inside of the house, everything is labeled with specific instructions.

The house itself is what you expect. The bottom two bedrooms have a queen in each. The upper loft has 4 twin beds. I appreciated the large number of twin beds, as I enjoy having my own bed to myself. As for the twins, at the time of my stay, there was one with a memory foam mattress, two typical spring mattresses, and one older spring mattress that is starting to slump in. The last mattress wasn't terrible, but it's definitely a game of roulette on which bed you'll get.

The living room has two comfortable couches for sitting/resting and a good amount of space for activities. Since my friends and I went skiing and snowboarding on this trip, we were able to fully utilize the living room space for stretching/foam rolling.

There are also two bathrooms, one on each floor, stocked with body wash, shampoo, and even bandaids! (Someone in our group had a little accident).

The kitchen has all of the basic items you would expect, from pots and pans, to utensils. When we were staying, there was no salt or oil available, but there were no promises of that either. On the good side, Lori did leave us a bottle of martinelli's in the fridge, which we really appreciated.

The location of the house is in South Lake Tahoe, the actual city, so amenities are aplenty. There's a good selection of restaurants, grocery stores (Raley's and safeway!), and whatever else you would expect to find in a town.

The location is 8 minutes from Heavenly ski resort, and 45 minutes from Kirkwood.

Would I stay here in the future? Definitely.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. Glad you enjoyed the spaces, large choice of beds, (some are new memory foam beds and another will be new this spring). Also glad you liked the location, the bottle of Martinelli's cider, and that you would definitely return in the future. You are welcome back anytime and to thank you for taking the time to write a positive review, mention your 5 star review when calling to book and you will receive 25.00 off as my way of saying thank you.

My go-to Tahoe Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is the quintessential Tahoe Cabin. It has an incredibly comfy and cozy feel to it, with great furniture and perfect mountain decor. I have stayed here with friends on a couple occasions and always try to book this place first whenever I make a trip up. The beds and rooms are always impeccably clean, great patio with a grill, awesome kitchen with extras of everything, convenient location and walking distance to everything you need...I have been nothing but happy to stay at Lori's chalet and hope to continue to do so throughout the winter season as it's the perfect cabin.
