Overview

South Lake Tahoe House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Forest Land In Backyard

The house location is a 'local's secret' due to its quiet, tranquil settings. This neighborhood community is known as Christmas Valley. The house is close to major resorts and casinos yet just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of South Shore tourism. The jaw-dropping beauty of Lake Tahoe itself and its west shore beaches are 10-15 minutes depending on your favorite spot. Summer fun offers hiking and biking trails within minutes of the property. Golfing at Lake Tahoe Golf Course and Paradise Golf are within 10 minutes in one direction or drive approximately 15 minutes the other direction to go fishing in Hope Valley.

Winter enjoyment provides both downhill and X-country skiing nearby and the kids can sled right in the backyard. Winter ski areas known around the world include Sierra at Tahoe (15 minutes), Heavenly Valley (20 minutes), and Kirkwood (25 minutes).

House backs to forest service land and you can start your hike and/or the kids can climb plenty of rocks right up the hill from the backyard. The house sits in a residential neighborhood that is safe for kids to ride bike. 2-car garage is available for your use so bring all your ‘fun’ gear and lock it up safely as you go from one recreational activity to another and not worry about storing it all in your car. Once your day of adventure is over, spend quality family time playing cards, games, or watching DVD’s in the cozy living room, or send the kids upstairs for tv time and adults can visit without interruption.

The house completely remodeled in the fall of 2014. New kitchen and appliances, two new bathrooms, in-floor heating in kitchen and bathrooms! Sleeping for 10 people: 9 sleep comfortably in beds with 1 on the couch. The downstairs has 2 bedrooms (queen bed in one and 1 twin bed plus a queen in the other) with a renovated bathroom. The upstairs is one large room with a queen bed, a sitting area with a futon and a t.v, plus a second full bath.

Kitchen is equipped for easy cooking so just bring your favorite spices, food, and favorite beverages. Crockpot, microwave, roasting pan, and large stock pot makes for creating meals a snap. Other basic pots/pans are also available. Washer/dryer available for your use and detergent is provided.

Why Chuck Gleave chose South Lake Tahoe

We love the 'in Tahoe but not all the traffic' location of our house. With the house right up against forest land, we love that our backyard is natural and open to nature.

What makes this house unique

10 minute drive and you are on the west beach of the lake without fighting all the downtown traffic! Another benefit, is head the other direction from the house and enjoy the beauty of Hope Valley. You can fish the stream, do hikes. Many people visit the area for the lake but completely miss out on the beauty of the valley.

For the ski buffs, this property is also unique in that it splits the travel time between Heavenly and Kirkwood Ski Resorts.

Phenomenological...can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

We have 5 kids and this house is amazing and has everything one needs and more. The amenities were endless, the kitchen was fully stocked and talk about upgrades. Its very comfortable/cozy and located right next to the national forest so your adventures start there. One thing I loved about this beauty was the detail the owner has by providing laminated notes around the house showing how things work and what needs to be done when finishing up your stay. This is our second stay in South Lake Tahoe and this place exceeded my expectations in every way. The owner gives you recommendations for hikes, restaurants and beach fun. I highly recommend going to Camp Richardson for boat, long boards and paddle boat rentals etc...plus this beach is free and has soft sand unlike other parts of the lake that recommend water shoes, plus you can drink on the beach. The beach charges 10 bucks to park but you can park along the 89 highway for free. For grocery shopping I highly recommend the Grocery Outlet and stay way from Raley's unless you don't mind outrageous prices. Great family fun and can't wait to come back for many years to come...Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Peaceful, modern place near South Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

It may not look like much on the outside, but this house was recently completely remodeled and is very nice inside. The kitchen is well-equipped, and there is floor and gas-stove heating just about everywhere. The upstairs master suite is quite special with its own heating stove, bath, and HDTV. It is far enough away from the crowd, but also close to the 89/50 junction with restaurants and grocery store. One thing not mentioned in the description is that there is an outdoor grill - a Foreman electric grill. The Internet Wi-Fi works just fine with clear instructions for it as well as just about everything around the house.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This home was just the right size for our family of six. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and has lovely new appliances. We literally walked out the back door to enjoy El Dorado National Forest and Lake Tahoe is only about a ten minute drive away. In addition, the owners are courteous and helpful.

Wonderful, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this home for about 2 weeks. We invited some family to come over for the Labor Day weekend to stay. This home was perfect for us; it's in a quiet neighborhood and has a great private area upstairs that is huge. We loved the layout of the home. The backyard is a forest and the lot to the north and across the street have no homes so we felt we had lots of privacy.

The home is about 6 miles from the 'Y' in South Lake Tahoe and on the busy Labor Day holiday it was great to be able to use the Pioneer Trail to get to the Nevada side of Tahoe.

We hiked, biked and really enjoyed a late afternoon sail on the lake. I highly recommend the sailing. Some people in our group rented jet skis and kayaks. We didn't eat out much, we usually had meals at the house or made a picnic.

Thank you to the owner for allowing us to stay in this mountain retreat. The owners were very responsive to us in both renting the unit to us and answering questions while we were there.

Tahoe Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The home was very cute & family friendly. It was in a very cute neighborhood. The owner Chuck was very nice & informative. He made our first booking through VRBO very pleasant & easy to book. He also provided us his number for any questions while at our stay. It was secluded from all traffic areas; peaceful & quiet but just 15 minute drive to Camp Richarson, 25 minutes to Emerald Bay & Casinos but didn't mind the drive because of the nice scenic views!

Owner's Response: The peaceful and quiet of the forested neighborhood is one of the reasons we enjoy our location. Glad to read that you took advantage of our favorite 'things to see and do' list that we supplied upon your inquiry. Camp Richardson and Emerald Bay are a couple of our favorite places. We take great pride in making the reservation process smooth and easy and enjoy speaking to and getting to know our clients.

Golfing at Lake Tahoe Golf Course and Bejou Golf are within 10 minutes in one direction or drive approximately 15 minutes the other direction to go fishing in Hope Valley.

Winter enjoyment provides both downhill and X-country skiing nearby and the kids can sled right in the backyard. Winter ski areas known around the world include Sierra at Tahoe (10 minutes), Heavenly Valley (20 minutes), and Kirkwood (30 minutes).

Our personal favorites are hiking Horsetail Falls (20 minutes west on Hwy 50) or relaxing at Emerald Bay (25 minutes on west shore of lake). Hope Valley is gorgeous and is total different scenery then what you see by the lake.
