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 Rancho Bijou

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!

Our Tahoe Home

  • 5 of 5

Our trip this past week was everything we wanted and more and that starts with the house! My family loved how open the front section of the house was. It was perfect for our nightly game nights. We were also shocked but very grateful for how much else was provided at the home. Ie. Skis, snowboards, extras boots, snow shoes, etc. being able to walk through the meadow was also a treat. Jeff was also available at a moments notice. Going out of his way to assist us with figuring out the fireplace. Always available by phone or email. On our last day we were already talking about when we should come back to Mountain Meadows.

A very welcoming, cozy, retreat for two legged & four legged, family members!

  • 5 of 5

The home is not only comfortable, it is welcoming, clean & well stocked! Our first visit will not be our last. The home's open floor plan & the easy access to the meadow provides flexibility of use. Our family just spent the Thanksgiving holiday & it served us well. The kitchen is spacious for meal prep & service. We spent many hours in the meadow with the dogs & playing games in front of the fire. Visiting family members gave it a five also! Jeff is great to work with, very responsive & helpful.

great, relaxing place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The location was great - quiet neighborhood with the large open meadow out the back and yet very close to town, beaches, good hikes and anything else you would want. Jeff was very responsive by email and the whole process was super easy. I would highly recommend the house and would absolutely stay here again!

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.
