About Dan and Heidi Thomas

Heidi enjoys snowshoeing near chalet at Lake Tahoe.

Dan and Heidi Thomas purchased this chalet in 1995

Why Dan and Heidi Thomas chose South Lake Tahoe

After vacationing in beautiful Lake Tahoe for 15 years, we decided that Tahoe was always going to be a special place for our family to enjoy for years to come. We started by staying in hotels, then purchased a timeshare that we used throughout the year. Finally, we decided to find a home in a quiet, forested neighborhood, away from city noise, but close enough to enjoy the great Lake Tahoe ammenities: water, casinos, and skiing, without having to drive very far. Montgomery Estates was the answer, and we have loved vacationing here ever since. Check it out, and you'll see why this is such a special place in Lake Tahoe!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home worked out great for our stay in the Tahoe area, close enough to everything to be convenient, but away from the masses in town. What a beautiful area!

Lovely Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided on a last minute getaway to Tahoe with our kids (ages 7, 5, and 2 months) before the end of the ski season. We found this lovely home on Homeaway and we were not disappointed. The owners were very quick to respond to our request. The garage was a good size and managed to fit my husband's truck. The house was very clean and quite nice inside. We stayed in the larger bedroom downstairs with our infant. I thought our daughters were going to be excited about getting to stay in one of the two big beds upstairs (one on the loft and the other in the upstairs bedroom where the computer was), but they both chose the downstairs bedroom next to ours. It was clearly a very roomy home, and next time I'd love to invite some other people to come with us. One of my favorite features was the heated floor in the downstairs bathroom. The central heating system works well, but our girls were more into having a fire in the fire place. The kitchen has a fair share of cooking items, including a waffle maker. We were overall very impressed with this rental and would definitely return in the future if it's available.

Things to know:

1) There's salt and pepper, seasoned salt, and oil, but that's pretty much it. So, if you need flour, sugar, condiments (eg, ketchup, mustard, syrup, honey,etc), you need to definitely bring those things.

2) The white coffeemaker that was there during our stay (April 1-3, 2016) didn't work well at all. It sputtered water out the top, leaked, and was mostly producing steam. This was the one thing we were disappointed about (but not worth losing a star over). So, if you are a coffee person, BYOC (bring your own coffeemaker) or be prepared to make a 30 min round-trip Starbucks run everyday.

So, like I said... overall, wonderful stay for our entire family. Thank you Dan and Heidi!

Comfortable & beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

I made inquiry of the site and with an hour was getting a call about my request. Considering it was a holiday weekend (President's Day, and actually Valentine's Day too) the pricing was fantastic and for a great, quiet low-key location it was everything we were looking for. We did have some young kids and there were no bathtubs, showers only, but the kids were old enough to stand so not a major concern. We loved the bathroom with the warm floor! The house was perfect for a family get away to relax and play in the snow. We went to a local snow park but could have stayed in and played in the yard out front and back just fine. No complaints or issues. The owners were quick to reply via email and phone with anything prior to our visit. We had nothing but a great time there!

Very satisfied

  • 5 of 5

After a five hour car ride from Sacramento to Tahoe (due to weather), I was totally relieved when we arrived to this cabin and it exceeeded my expectations. Having a garage for the car was really nice and the inside of the home was immaculate. Newer carpet, granite countertops, clean restrooms (downstairs restroom had warm floors I think). The cabin is cozy with vaulted ceilings that make it feel spacious. I would definitely recommend it and look forward to staying there again someday.

Beautiful Cabin in A Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the cleanliness of the home when we arrived. The driveway had been cleared of recent snow and everything was just as described - better even. Owners were quick to respond and answer questions regarding our reservation. The backyard was a perfect spot to sled and build snowmen with the children. We will definitely be recommending this home to others and keep it in mind for future visits!
