About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Looking for an action packed, colorful and authentic woodland getaway? Look no further! This three-bedroom (plus loft) mountain chalet-style Tahoe City vacation rental is perfect for up to 10 guests. Complete with beautiful interior design, a fantastic outdoor deck and can't be beat location you'll have the outdoor escape you've all been searching for.

Located just north of Tahoe City you'll find yourselves one block from the paved trail that runs along the west shore of Lake Tahoe and all the way to Squaw Peak, a scenic outdoor adventure awaits just outside your front door. Two and a half miles from your doorstep is Burton Creek State Park, with its miles of unpaved roadway for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, that joins both the Tahoe Rim Trail and Fiberboard Freeway.

Nearby beaches include Lake Forest Beach Park, offering a scenic lake view, while world-class skiing is only 10 miles away at Squaw Valley. Take a quick bike ride to downtown Tahoe City, filled with cute shops, cafes and an array of dining choices!

The home features a beautiful great room on the first level, and an open concept dining room and kitchen downstairs. Prepare for some gourmet home made meals as this home comes with a fully equipped kitchen, plus a few perks such as an espresso maker and waffle iron and gas grill on the deck!

You'll find one bedroom plus a loft heading upstairs. The bedroom boasts a queen bed, A-frame ceilings, warm bedding and a rocking chair. The loft is expansive and features a double bed separated by an antique screen in one corner. On the other side you'll find four twin beds, as well as a TV with DVD player and VCR, couches, and lots of space to play. On this level, there is also a full bathroom with a tub. There is a third bedroom with a queen. With plenty of great sleeping options, this home will comfortably accommodate 10 guests!

Comfortable, spacious, full of character -- this Lake Tahoe Nordic getaway has it all!

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

We love this home & it's coziness. We hope to stay here again in the future as it feels like home. We get the feeling that we would really get along with the owners & would love to meet them someday.

Fun spot, great location

  • 5 of 5

Charming and unique. A great place to bring the whole family! Plenty of space and beds and close to trails and the lake, and just a short drive to either Squaw or Northstar for skiing.

Radiates decades of love

  • 5 of 5

Nordic Haus radiates love! To stay here felt like a warm hug from your favorite relative. Decades of games and movies and charming decor. Super comfortable beds and bedding. The furniture is so very special. And the front door has an amazing handmade lock on it. I love the location, quiet, residential, away from crowds. I can't wait to come back again. Thank you so much Nordic Haus family for renting to us, that was a special experience.

We were lucky enough to enjoy this wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the unique style of this home and we definitely plan to stay here again! There is ample space making it easy for kids and adults to have separate areas to hang out in. The only suggestion we would make is we wish it had a hot tub.
