Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Tahoe Tree House has been professionally managed and maintained for 10+ years. It's a renters' favorite - one of their most popular properties with high repeats.

What's the big benefit of 'professionally managed?' NO personal effects of the owner. Towels folded decoratively, soap in the soap dishes, extra hot tub towels....The house is truly yours. Most VRBO houses feel like the owner still lives there (cluttered with personal pictures and stuff) or has never overnighted there (no amenities). Try us, you'll see the difference.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to Tahoe Tree House which overlooks mature pines and firs from 3 outdoor decks or through gorgeous cathedral windows. *NEW SPA* just installed! Homeowner remodeled this warm, bright home to include modern amenities without sacrificing the classic Tahoe vacation feel-big log ceiling beams, vaulted ceilings, cozy wood burning stove, 3 redwood decks and hot tub. Features new granite counter tops and cherry cabinets in kitchen and bathrooms, sunny redwood decks and a 2nd floor open floor plan where the kitchen, living room and dining room form a delightful great room, perfect for entertaining. Decks at either end of the upstairs bring the outside in. **BRAND NEW** Simmons Beautyrest Pillowtop Mattresses in 2 of 3 bedrooms! The master bedroom and two other bedrooms are all on the first floor, all with queen beds and professionally furnished. Doors from two bedrooms open out to hot tub deck complete with hot tub towels. There's cable TV, DVD/CD player, and stereo upstairs with a second TV in the master bedroom. High speed wireless Internet access keeps you connected to work or play. Conveniently situated 4 miles south of Tahoe City with easy access to Alpine Meadows and Squaw Valley ski resorts or Homewood. Located just 1 block away from Paige Meadows and Tahoe National Forest--great for hiking, biking, cross country skiing or snow shoeing without ever getting into your car.

Here are ACTUAL renters' comments, taken from the website of the professional rental agent we used for 10+ years to manage the property (see Reviews link for reviews from 2016):

A FAIRYTALE HOUSE IN A SUPERB LOCATION 5:5 STARS

We love the Treehouse and have returned several times (and will again). It is clean, spacious and very welcoming. We feel we have come home as soon as we walk through the front door. The property location, within easy reach of Alpine, Squaw, Northstar and Homewood is ideal for keen skiers such as ourselves. We were very appreciative of the WiFi although a bit disappointed that it stopped working after a few days as we were using it (via Skype) to keep in touch with our children, whom we had left at home for the first time. Happily they don't appear to have had any wild parties while we were away! We love Tahoe AND the Treehouse! Thank you.

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE 5:5 STARS

First I want to thank you for keeping the cabin in top condition so we, renters, can enjoy it in full. The cabin is beautiful and was ready to be enjoyed. Also you were very helpful when I went to your office to request some information and when I called to request a later checkout time.

The only issue we notice with the cabin is that the garage door could not be opened automatically, because the chain was not engaging the door. Thanks again

WARM AND COZY 5:5 STARS

We got in during the first snow storm of the season. BRING CHAINS or have a really good four wheel drive - the house is up a few hills. Great house, had everything that we needed. The new oven was a little temperamental, but other than that - everything was wonderful!

· By Meeshy from San Francisco on 12/18/2009 for a stay in 11/1/2009

GREAT LONG WEEKEND 5:5 STARS

We were very pleased with how accommodating the rental company was with changing houses. The first house we rented was not at all what we were expecting and had a horrible odor from the kitchen disposal. The staff allowed us to switch to Tahoe Tree House, a place we had rented before. What a difference! It's a nice layout and roomy. The hot tub is awesome and the kitchen is great to cook in. It's close to everything and the roads are well plowed. Great place to stay and we'll be back.

About The Owner

We fell in love with Tahoe years ago and have been coming up to the Tree House for years from the Bay Area where we live. It’s a perfect getaway, winter or summer. We have had excellent experiences with renters and are happy to share our home with you.

The Owner purchased this house in 1991

Why The Owner chose Tahoe City

We rented all over the Tahoe area before buying Tahoe Tree House. It's the best of all worlds: 1. Close to the lake (HUGE views as you drive to the house) without having to pay lake front prices 2. Hiking and cross country skiing 2 minutes away - you never have to get into your car, if you don't want to! 3. Equal access to multiple ski areas - Squaw and Alpine just west 6 miles, Homewood south 5 miles. 4. Locals' restaurant with killer lakeside location just down the hill

What makes this house unique

One of our renters made this recommendation: Great ski service Several of my friends took advantage of the Black Tie Skis delivery service. These guys were amazing! They showed up at the house with a van full of tons of high performance equipment and then fit you on the spot. They then made arrangements to meet us at the ski resort on the last day to pick up our stuff. Fantastic!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much we’ve enjoyed the Tree House. It’s been a wonderful week so far - the place is perfect. We love the location near paige meadows and I was very pleased to find a well equipped kitchen :)

New Years Tree House Stay

  • 4 of 5

Location and amenities are super. The Tree house is well stocked with all cooking and baking utensils which make meal prep easy. There is a slight lake view which is pretty refreshing as you are just high enough to catch a seclude glimpse through the trees. The snowfall was quite heavy and 4X4 made short work of the situation but I assume autos with chains would be fine too. There was a local snowplow/removal service which made for safer and manageable passage. All three bedrooms are on the entry level and are good sized. The bedding and linens are super. The only grievance I could find was that while the photo accurately represent the living area, they do exaggerate the overall size somewhat. That is to say the living area is slightly smaller than the photos would lead one to believe. The Home fits 6 people ( which is what we had) and really 6 is the max.I could not imagine a lager party here as there are really no sleeping accommodations for extra folks other than the floor.

Great stay in a beautiful place and cabin. We would rent again.

Beautiful, clean, and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the Thanksgiving holiday at the Tahoe Tree House ( 2 couples with 2 young children). We loved looking out all the lovely windows watching it snow as well as utilizing the hot tub among the trees. This home is well equipped and very comfortable. It is close to store and restaurants, yet is tucked up in the trees. I highly recommend it .

great house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over President's Day weekend and had a terrific time. The house is in a lovely neighborhood up in the mountains and still a short drive (~20 min) to Squaw Valley. The house was clean and up to date, beds were comfy, hot tub terrific and kitchen well stocked. The living area had wonderful large windows with beautiful views. Our family of 5 was super happy with this house.

A wonderful stay at the tree house

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. Nearby town and slopes. Our family of six adults enjoyed it very much. Very comfortable beds and furniture. Well appointed decor and amenities. We loved the super equipped kitchen, especially the new high tech stove. The ride up the mountain to the tree house gave us a spectacular view of the lake.
