Sierra Tract House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 baths, Sleeps 6 in beds (additional 2 on queen futon)

A beautifully remodeled house located in a quiet neighborhood of South Lake Tahoe. Located one mile from the 'Y' area, and 3 miles from Heavenly Ski Resort and the Stateline area with casinos, restaurants, shopping, concert venues, etc. Perfect for a few small families or a romantic getaway. A few blocks away at the back of our subdivision is National Forest Area and the Upper Truckee River, with lots of trails for snowshoeing or cross country skiing in the winter, or hiking and mountain biking in the summer. Camp Richardson and Pope Beach are also just a few miles away, both with great summer activities.

Our 1400 sq. foot home is decorated in classic Tahoe decor. Downstairs you will find the living room with gas fireplace, a flat screen TV and DVD player, fully equipped kitchen with gas range and granite countertops, the family room with a futon and sofa, and one bedroom (queen bed) with attached bath. Upstairs are the other two bedrooms (one cal king and one queen), and one bathroom. All bed and bath linens are provided, and there is a full size washer and dryer. We have WiFi for those of you who need to stay connected, and plenty of books, board games, and movies too!

There is an over sized single car garage, and a separate driveway. Parking is limited to 2 cars during the winter (if there is snow on the ground). We have a plow service to keep the driveways clear for worry-free access in the winter.

Our beautiful fully fenced backyard has a large gas BBQ, patio heater, and plenty of seating for our nice Tahoe summers. We also have a cooler, beach chairs, and beach towels for our guests.

NOTE: BBQ/patio heater and patio furniture not available in winter months, as we store them away after first snow, usually early November.

Why Peggy Dimas or Joe Dimas chose South Lake Tahoe

We purchased this home in South Lake Tahoe because we love the year round activities the area provides, as well as the amazing scenery. There is something for everyone here, whatever the season.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for letting us stay at your cabin! Everybody loved the cabin and we had a lot of fun. Heavenly was so close to us and we had a bunch of fun snowboarding, also there is nice little pond area that was really close that we went for sledding and a snowball fight. I'm really glad that we stayed at your cabin. I'm looking forward to staying there again and taking others from my family so they see how nice it is and the great area it is in.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Peggy and Joe's place was great. Well stocked with all the cooking essentials you'd need for your stay. We had 3 adults and 2 kids, the beds were comfortable and the games for the kids were a hit too. The backyard is perfect for barbecuing and sitting around socializing while gazing up at the trees. Conveniently located to all things Tahoe has to offer. Recommend this cabin to anyone!

A lovely, well-appointed cabin close to shopping and National Forest hikes!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dimas' house. The home was ideal for our two young children, with a lovely outdoor space and comfy furniture. The bedrooms are large, and the bathrooms are nicely redone. We enjoyed sleeping on the king-sized bed, gazing out the window at the moon and stars. The kitchen was fully stocked, better than any vacation home we have stayed in. The location is convenient to shopping and restaurants in S Lake Tahoe. And then, within a ten-minute walk, you can be on National Forest land, walking on trails that lead to beautiful meadow and mountain views. Overall, this is a superb location for these reasons, but if you want seclusion, this may not be the place for you. While the neighbors on the whole are quiet and respectful, the homes here are close together. But the proximity to everything more than makes up for that. We loved our stay here as our base for hiking and biking around Lake Tahoe!!

This is the best place to live in Tahoe. I visit Tahoe once a year from last decade, no doubt couldn't find a place much better than this.

5 Star location.Extremely Clean

  • 5 of 5

Peggy was a delight to work with. Very responsive as she only took 30 minutes to respond to my booking request. She made everything clear, simple and easy to do business.

The property was exactly what we were looking for. Close enough to the casinos but just far enough from the bustle of the "Tahoe Night Life". It was very clean and provided everything needed. ( Towels, soap, etc)

Lots of bedding was a big plus. The property was priced at a really reasonable and competitive price.

I would definitely stay here again!!!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five had a great spring break here at this wonderful home. It was so nice to stay in rental that has a well stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture, is beautifully decorated, and all in a great location. The owner provided access information in a timely manner, and when we arrived, we were able to settle in quickly and enjoy our time there. Can't wait to stay at this lovely place again soon!
