About The Owner

We purchased this house in 1998 after getting married earlier that year. We lived in this home for 12 years, raised our children and created some of our most special memories. Our family has deep roots in Tahoe. We are 4th and 5th generations that have resided in the Tahoma and Homewood areas of the West Shore. We love the West Shore and could not imagine living anywhere else.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Tahoma

The Timber Wolf House is located on a quiet street in a wonderful neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Because this was our personal home for 12 years, we added a lot of personal home features which make it more than just a bare vacation rental. The home is also located in a quiet neighborhood and street where you do not have to worry about traffic noise. It is a walk to Chamber's Landing Beach & Bar and 2 miles from Homewood Ski Resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. From the fireplace to games with lots of space to enjoy, we had a delightful time. It's convenient to Homewood skiing - and Lake Tahoe - and the restaurants! The lake is always such a draw even if it is just to look at! Such beauty. The kitchen is great to work in - gourmet with top of the line appliances. We had an issue with the washer and they responded so quickly! I'd highly recommend it - very nice!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. We had two families (7 people total) and the cabin worked out well for us. It was spacious, clean, and the kitchen is well equipped with anything you would need to make family meals. The backyard is lovely and the kids had a great time making snow people.

Homewood was super close and is excellent for family skiing/snowboarding. Fresh powder fell and it still wasn't massively busy. We went sledding at nearby Granlibakken and Tahoe City was close enough if you needed more supplies than what the local general store had. Be prepared to cook, there aren't a lot of close restaurants to get takeout/delivery.

The check in instructions were provided in advance of the arrival, we were contacted on the day to ensure the check in was smooth and we didn't have any questions. When we arrived the house was ready and even heated for us. Great experience overall! Thank you!

We loved our stay here! The house was well equipped with everything that we needed during our stay. The kitchen made cooking for a large group very easy. The backyard was great for us to enjoy the snow and the hot tub. We would highly recommend!

Beautiful house, perfectly equiped and in a very nice location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with some friend in July 2017, and the experience was perfect! We received a perfectly cleaned house, with all the necessary equipment for a great stay. We enjoyed its beautiful backyard, bbq area and hot tub, as well as its comfortable common areas and rooms. I totally recommend this place!

Weekend skiing and sightseeing

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and four teenagers had a wonderful time at this home. Clean, spacious, well equipped, comfortable and very cosy. Someone put a lot of love into this home. Pictures do not do it justice. Our 5' 6" teen had plenty of room in the "toddler" bed and the room without a door is downstairs which separates it out, especially with the provided screen, although sound does travel. Remote controlled fireplace had bodies curled in front of it all weekend. Beds were super comfortable. The kitchen was a lot of fun to cook in and the large dining table accommodated our group. Joanne was very responsive and helpful. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
