About Ann Marie Amaro

Our family purchased 'the Snow House', as we refer to it, to accommodate us comfortably so that we could take quick trips from the San Jose area to Lake Tahoe to enjoy skiing and snowboarding during the winter and trips to the beach and hiking during the warmer months. We like to work hard in the Bay area and play hard in the Lake Tahoe area. We purchased the property from the original owner who built the property for their family. We hope you build many memories here as families before you have.

Ann Marie Amaro purchased this house in 1992

Why Ann Marie Amaro chose Lake Tahoe South Shore

This home provides us with all the amenities we need for the activities we enjoy. We really enjoy the location since we could walk to Heavenly Valley or even catch the shuttle from our front door for skiing and snowboarding. The Chalet is close enough to the casinos, shopping and activities yet far enough to enjoy the calm, serene quiet of the mountains.

What makes this house unique

We absolutely love making breakfast and sitting out on the deck in the early mornings to savor our food and drink while viewing the mountains. After a long day of skiing or snowboarding, it is wonderfully relaxing to soak in the hot tub. The combination of the crisp, cold air and steaming water in the hot tub is unbelievable.

Great property for families or extended families!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin work amazing for our family and friends. Our family of four fit perfect in the loft- giving us our own "space", could even fit another couple or more kids! ;) Two other couples could fit downstairs- it great!

Location is KEY! So close to Heavenly or the strip. AMAZING!

Heavenly Location!

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming and comfortable family cabin with a great location, close to Heavenly and walking distance to a front-row seat for the spectacular 4th of July fireworks! Our family had a lovely time here - we spent a great deal of our morning, sipping coffee and relaxing while watching the incredible view from the living room with the spectacular floor to ceiling windows. The beds are incredibly comfortable. This cabin comes fully stocked with everything one needs for an enjoyable stay with a spectacular view.

Snow on Christmas Eve, MAGICAL! :)

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples and a baby) travelled from Europe to spend the Holiday season 2014 in the USA. We couldn't have wished for better place to spend Christmas. We had snow on Christmas Eve that was magical and i'm pretty confident to stay this house has the best view in the area!

The kitchen and the whole house was unbelievably well stocked, well equipped.

The house itself is very spacious, we could easily have 4-5 more people staying with us comfortably.

The owner was easy to get in contact with, very helpful and friendly.

Although it was tricky to send back our deposit due to my failure of confirming our details in time(!!), the owner remained very kind and responsive, immediately sorted out the issue and confirmed with us by email, within no time we had our deposit on our account.

We were very happy with our stay, and would surely recommend it to anybody, who wishes to spend a nice, relaxing time with breathtaking view.

Ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay for presidents weekend and we love it! The house is perfect for a group of 10 people. The kitchen have more things than we expect everything needed was there. It have a big dining table and a open living room which is important because not everyone is going to be cooking. It is super close to everything specially to heavenly like 3 minutes with car. Nice that have a place for the huge ski jackets and boots. The view is spectacular. The only thing to consider is if you go with an older person you need to be aware that there is some stairs from the garage to get in the house, so someone with disabilities will be difficult, like for my mom that has problems with her knee. For the other ones were no problem once you get in the house you love it. We will rent it again, thanks Ann

We spent 4 nights at the Snow House. The house was cozy and fit the theme of our ski trip. Two families shared the house and the hot tub was perfect after skiing. The best part of the house was it's location. It was quiet and private away from the crowds and awesome location to easily jump on the hill to ski. Easy location to our dinner out and the girls massage. My husband said it has a nice alpine feel.

During the winter, the kids can create their own snow park adjacent to the chalet for sledding and tubing while adults relax and enjoy a warm drink on the deck while watching the kids. This makes for a very relaxing time for the adults while the kids get tired out. During the warm months, you can hike to Heavenly Valley (1/2 mile), take the lifts and continue your hike up to a gorgeous view of Lake Tahoe at 10,000 feet. It is very doable for a novice hiker. The view of Lake Tahoe is breathtaking. During the winter, you can literally ski down the road to Heavenly Valley and get a half or full day of skiing or snowboarding without having to deal with parking in the lot or down the road.
