Bedrooms 7
Space 3,800 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

This HUGE house is like a lodge with 3800 square feet of living space. The house is perfect for large groups and the location is perfect! So much room to spread out and enjoy being together. We have just remodeled 3 of the bathrooms and redecorated all the bedrooms. We have an excellent cleaning service, so no need to worry. In addition to the 7 bedrooms there is a fully stocked kitchen with 3 ovens and 2 living areas so your group can divide up when desired. There are 2 TVs. 1 in each living room and feature Dish network channels.

There is a wonderful huge fireplace in the main living room to enjoy after a day on the ski slopes or just to hang around with you are cold. The main house has five bedrooms, 3 upstairs & 2 downstairs, three baths, and sleeps 12. The attached rear unit has two more bedrooms and sleeps an additional six people.

All rooms are nicely decorated and both kitchens have cookware and a dishwasher.

Extra large hot tub in private yard. There are even 2 washers and dryers for your convenience.

Most importantly, this house has passed the rigid inspection process required by the City of So Lake Tahoe and is approved as a vacation rental. Whoever wrote that nasty review must have stayed someplace else because this is a lovely home to rent. Although there are sometimes little mice which are common in mountain cabins. We have an excellent cleaning service.

The house is located in a flat area accessible in most weather. There is parking in the driveway for 5 to 6 cars.

The location is Great!!! Just a short walk to the lake, ten minutes to Heavenly Ski Resort or the Casinos. The area is wonderful for swimming, biking/hiking or just to stroll around the neighborhood. There is a boat launch and a bike path nearby. Have a great mountain experience in this wonderful cabin.

Our rates vary during the year. We offer discounts for April, May, Sept, Oct, and Nov. For holiday rates please inquire.

You will love this place!!!

About Jessica Anderson

This is our current family. We are raising two of our grandchildren with the help of their dad. We have already raised 7 wonderful children and have 26 grandchildren who delight us regularly.

Jessica Anderson purchased this house in 1995

Why Jessica Anderson chose South Lake Tahoe

We chose this property because we have a very large family and wanted a place we could all get together and have fun. There is always so much to do At Tahoe for people of all ages.

What makes this house unique

With 7 bedrooms, a large group can relax in their own space or get together in our large great room. There are two living rooms which means the kids can sit and watch a movie out back, while the adults enjoy quiet conversation or a movie in the front.

In the winter the fireplace gives warmth and comfort after a soak in the hottub. In the summer we live on the lake which is a short walk/drive away. Both summer and winter we often walk to the parks to sit and enjoy the lake.

Large, comfortable cabin. Fair, reasonable price.

  • 4 of 5

We’ve been hosting large family reunions at this cabin every summer for the last fourteen years. And we keep coming back year after year because this place suits our needs so well. Features we really like:

Spacious common areas. Plenty of room for everyone.

Two completely separate units. Kids can party in one area while you read a book or watch TV in the other.

Laid-back ambience. Not pristine. Just relaxed and comfortable.

Lots of bathrooms. No waiting. Plenty of hot water.

Large, clean hot tub.

Lots of off-street parking.

Owners continually improve and upgrade the property.

Easy walking distance to beaches, trails, stores, and restaurants.

On some of our past visits, the housekeeping service has been somewhat inconsistent, but the owners have resolved this issue. For the last several years, the property has been clean and organized upon our arrival.

Had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

A big group of my friends all got together over St Patrick's Day weekend this year and had a blast. The house was clean and it was large enough for us to stretch out. The small attached rear house was perfect for the 3 little ones we brought along, we were able to stay up late without disturbing them at all. The hot tub was very nice too.

I should note that the pictures on this posting are out of date. It is equipped with plasma tvs and DVD players. It's not crazy upscale like some of the other cabins in Tahoe and there are signs of wear, but it was perfect for my group. I hope to stay again this year.

Filthy House, Misleading VRBO Details, Unresponsive Owners, Fraudulent Previous Reviews

  • 1 of 5

DO NOT STAY HERE: Fraudulent listing, photos do not reflect the house, property is filthy and in disrepair, owners not helpful. The only positive review of the property was written by the owners daughter.

Family vacation nearly ruined by this misleading property due to filthy conditions (which the owners apparently knew about but didn't bother to address - they visited the house the day prior to our arrival and noted that the house was dirty, but didn't bother to have it cleaned prior to our arrival), broken or missing furniture, dead mice, marijuana stuffed in couch cushions, mold, must, and dust characterize this shoddy rental. Some family members got a hotel room to escape the property. Below find details of just a few of the issues we encountered and attempted to resolve with the property owners, who were not at all helpful.

(1) hide-a-bed in guest apartment is broken

(2) broken lamps

(3) broken glass shards and a nail found on carpet in apartment

(4) only 3 plastic, chewed on, drinking glasses in "full kitchen" in apartment

(5) one coffee maker among "2 full kitchens", and it is broken

(6) apartment shower-head is broken - leaks into wall

(7) mousetrap with dead mouse under hide-a-bed

(8) "new" floors were filthy and scuffed, and there were broken tiles (like everything else, broken prior to our arrival)

(9) dryer vents INTO the house

(10) no visible carbon monoxide detectors

(11) smoke alarms do not work

(12) filthy ovens that smoked when used

(13) listing states "both kitchens have all new appliances and a dishwasher" - a complete misrepresentation of facts - appliance mode years are 1978 (apartment) and 1998 (main house). We can't even use the apartment oven-- it is so filthy that it smokes when turned on.

(14) bags of drugs found on property

(15) no blankets for hide-a-bed (except a ratty, inadequate old electric blanket, circa 1970), sheets torn and stained

(16) HVAC looks like it has not been serviced or cleaned in years, as evidenced by dust emitting from vents every time they are turned on.

(17) rear wood-burning fireplace is closed for use, despite listing

(18) Trash left behind/between cushions of furniture (for example, a partially-eaten bags of potato chips rolled up in broken hide-a-bed).

The only positive thing I can say about the property is that one of the beds was comfortable (in the back apartment) and the location was convenient to walking down to the beach (and no one got sick from the mouse droppings we found all over the hous

Beautiful HOME!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very positive and helpful, she responded quickly to all my emails. This place was very spacious, and the rooms are very well arranged. Both the living room was big enough for all my friends that came to hang out and enjoy. This place is neat and clean. We specially love the huge spa, especially after snowboarding. The lake was a good walking distance. Its a great house to rent to take a vacation on!.. WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY! :) Thank You!.

There are so many things to do in this area. Close to 3 ski resorts and several snow parks. Travel to Carson City for shopping, the Mint museum is great, train museum, more casinos and fine dining. There is even a ghost town a few miles away. Year round you can take a boatride over to Emeral Bay and tour Vikingsholm. The Heavenly tram goes up the mountain year round for skiing and hiking and just to see the view. During summer there are bike trails near the cabin, hiking trails all around the lake, a Shakespeare Festival, and many other activities. The Chamber of Commerce is located just across the Tahoe Blvd from the cabin. You will have a delightful time her at our newly remodeled cabin and while visiting this area.
