About Jeff Waller

I grew up in Boone, North Carolina in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains where I fell in love with the outdoors. After receiving a degree in Architecture, I moved to San Francisco and currently design and build furniture and work in a residential architectural firm.

In 2005, I started looking for a house in Tahoe to fix up and use in the winter for ski vacations. After seeing many prospects that were just not right, I saw my dream location right near town. Situated on a meadow and only a five minute drive from Heavenly Ski area, Mountain Meadows is in a perfect location. The house provides wonderful access to nature and is a great place for family to to spend time together

Jeff Waller purchased this house in 2009

Why Jeff Waller chose South Lake Tahoe

Situated on a meadow and only a five minute drive from Heavenly Ski area, Mountain Meadows is in a perfect location. The rear of the house is bordered by an 8 acre parcel that was formerly the South Shore 'Drive-In' theater. Open trails lead directly from the back deck, through the open space, and to the meadow. Views of the mountains near and far await!

Open concept house with plenty of room for kids, dogs, family

  • 5 of 5

This adorable home worked perfectly for a 4th of July holiday. Our toddler had plenty of room to play in the large living area. Couches and beds were super comfy and the home had all the amenities needed to make for a cozy stay. The updated kitchen was fun and easy to cook in and the jetted tub made for a relaxing end to the days. The backyard is spectacular- it meets up to an open meadow and the paths lead to some beautiful picture taking spots. Jeff was a gracious host and made everything so easy and seamless. Will definitely be looking to stay here again soon.

Really great modern home

  • 5 of 5

The house was super clean and spacious with an open concept kitchen/living set up. It's like there are two living rooms put together so we were able to set up a play area for kiddos and didn't feel cramped at all. Kitchen was big and had everything we needed.

It was great that it is pet friendly especially with the meadow as the yard, our dog got to chase a couple squirrels:)

Location was super convenient to Safeway, only 2 miles to a beach and a 5min drive to stateline. We would def consider staying there again!

Came here with friends to celebrate a couple birthdays, the house was absolutely perfect. Great place to stay if you bring a dog or two. Lots of room inside and out for the dogs to run around in, the meadow was perfect for burning off some energy since it was pretty much right there. Very cozy especially with the fireplace. The house was stocked and clean when we arrived and nicely decorated. The house is very close to many things we wanted to do. Owner is wonderful to talk to and easy to deal with. We are definitely looking forward to coming back sometime!

Bijou Meadow is one of the two largest meadows in South Lake Tahoe, you can access it just out the back door. The views from the meadow are 360* views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Heavenly Ski Resort, Mt. Tallac, and Freel Peak. Ride your bike or take a morning stroll to Lake Tahoe. Follow the trails out the back door and across the meadow to Bijou Park, which contains several children's swing sets, a playground for young and older children, a skate park, a large family picnic area and a 27 hole frisbee golf course. Don't have frisbees? use ones at the house . Our Mountain Meadow paradise shares the meadow with a 9 hole, kid friendly, golf course that is one of the more inexpensive golf experiences in town ($20). Great for a warm up round. The Recreation and Swimming Complex is across the meadow where you can take the whole family for more playgrounds and an Olympic size swimming pool.
