About Wendy & Erik Hvolboll

We love to ski, hike and enjoy all that Lake Tahoe offers. Its beauty both summer and winter, is unsurpassed. We feel in love with this cabin and its fantastic location! It is the perfect place for us, close to everything, but...away from it all! Hike out our back door, or just kick it and enjoy the views and mountain air. Picture yourself Surrounded by forest land, the stillness of the forest, the songs of the birds, and whistling of the trees. The Tall Tree Lodge is hidden in this special area, our hidden jewel.


Wendy & Erik Hvolboll purchased this house in 2010

Why Wendy & Erik Hvolboll chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

We chose this cabin, and named it "Tall Tree Lodge" because of its awesome location and the majestic trees that surround us. Lay in your hammock and gaze up the all their glory. That is what we first feel in love with, and you will too. You are close to everything, yet away from it all. The cabin is just the icing on the cake, perfect for our family of four, and great when we want to have lots of friends up. Space enough for all. We hope you will enjoy it here as much as we do. We pride ourselves in making our home yours, and our goal is a stress free vacation that you will want to return again and again.

What makes this house unique

During the winter, the back is your private winter wonderland, complete with sled hill. Enjoy sitting in your hot tub watching the snowflakes gracefully dance down. Summer time, hike up the hill behind the cabin, play a game of horse shoes, bocci ball or mountain croquet. Sit and enjoy the stillness, nobody to disturb your peace. Hike up the hill the the "beach" It is a wide open space with beach like sand, and beautiful. Kids can frolic around on the rocks. Feel like taking a dip,or enjoying the beach, the water is a close distance down Ski Run. Or, take a bike and ride on the bike trail to the lake, less then a mile away!

**BIG SAVINGS....Stay 6 nights and get 7TH FREE!! (except Holidays)

Great South Lake Tahoe House

  • 5 of 5

We rented Erik and Wendy's house for a bachelor party weekend. The house fit 16 people easily. We were all able to hang out in the living areas and back patio. There was places to get away if you wanted to as well. The house is close to all the casinos, the lake, and golf courses. You can even hike up Heavenly mountain from the backyard. Erik and Wendy checked on us to make sure our stay was great. They even bought pizza and beer for our group before we arrived.

Family gathering

We had 17 people, we had plenty of room. Everyone slept in a bed. From the pictures it's hard to imagine but it worked well for us. I will surely rent again.
