About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Plan your next California adventure in this four-bedroom South Lake Tahoe vacation rental with a large enclosed yard, and all the comforts of home for up eight guests! The home is perfect for your next winter break vacation for the whole family, or even a lazy days summer reunion!

The location is ideal, just five miles to boating and floating on Lake Tahoe, three miles to boutiques, adventure sports stores, and fine dining in town, and four miles to shredding the slopes by snowboard or skis at Heavenly Mountain Resort.

The living room is inviting and spacious with vaulted ceilings, antique claw-foot furniture, and a window seat. Curl up on the couch and warm yourself by the gas fireplace, or break out the boardgames! Just off the living room is a large, formal dining room with a vintage wooden curio cabinet and oval dining table for six. The fully-equipped kitchen offers plenty of counter space and cabinets to serve a special turkey and cranberry feast, and the breakfast nook for two in the kitchen is perfect for families on the go!

Just off the kitchen is a second dining table with room for four, which serves as an informal meeting spot for planning the day's activities, or the setting for an after-dinner card game! Adjacent to the table is the family room with two cozy love seats, a flatscreen cable TV, DVD player, and CD Player and stereo with surround-sound capabilities. Snuggle up by the cozy fireplace or host a family movie night! Sliding glass doors off the family room lead to the patio.

This two-story home has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one half bath sleep eight guests comfortably. Bedrooms are upstairs, including a master suite with a queen-size bed and private bathroom. The second bedroom is very spacious with a full-size bed and cable TV, while the third bedroom has a queen-size bed, and the fourth bedroom has another full bed. Extra amenities include WiFi to keep you plugged in and up-to-date with current affairs, and a washer and dryer to keep everyone comfortable and clean while exploring the outdoors!

Outside, enjoy an enormous enclosed back yard with a wooden deck, gas grill for barbecues, and patio furniture and plan the next day's adventures. And there's plenty of room for Fido to play, though a nightly fee per dog and a minimum fee per stay will apply.

The peaceful Pinewood Retreat includes one adult bike and two children's bikes to explore the neighborhoods of South Lake Tahoe. Rent a boat just minutes away at Tahoe Keys Marina Yacht Club, or tee off 10-minutes from home at the Lake Tahoe Golf Course. Head into town for a brew and a slice at Base Camp Pizza, enjoy rock climbing, mountain biking, and any winter activity you can think of at Heavenly Mountain Resort just 10-minutes away!

Whether you're planning a family vacation in the great outdoors or a couples getaway with skiing and adventure, this South Lake Tahoe home provides a comfortable home base in the heart of Lake Tahoe's world-class outdoor attractions!

About Vacasa, CA - Lake Tahoe

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!

It is a fine, well built house, but in sore need of TLC. I had to purchase cleaning materials to clean the sinks and tubs. The bath tub reaked of mold and had mold on most of the grout areas There were many pet urine stains on the carpet in the family room. My one year old niece's feet were FILTHY after walking on the carpet and floor areas for just a few minutes. The back yard was completely unkept; weeds were knee high in some spots, young trees were growing wild, and I wouldn't have put my foot in the hot tub because it was in disrepair and probably not sanitary enough given the condition of the bathrooms. The guest hand book was sticky and grimy. There were no specific directions regarding the 4 TV remotes, if it want for a tech savvy nephew, we would have been w/o TV. A prospective client came by to look at the house, you are lucky I didn't show her what she was getting into. I hope this will wake someone up and keep this place clean. I do have photos of the problems I have mentioned.

Great location for the price

  • 4 of 5

If you stay here, you need to like pets. Even though we waited over a half hour past check in time for the the house to be cleaned, there was fur all over the rugs and poop in the back yard and I did not bring any animal with us. Be weary of the toilets, back door, and hot tub, they are all rather temperamental in that the toilet easily floods, you need a strong man to lock and unlock the back door since its so sticky, and make sure you give plenty of time for the hot tub to cool down before you go in, my friend got a burn on her leg that lasted the whole trip.

The location is great, kitchen was well stocked, and the tv was nice and all instructions for check in/out were very clear. There was a very helpful little binder on the table with all the details about everything from wifi to laundry to tv plugs etc. I think the largest seller for this place is that its location is almost perfect, it was a good price, and it's pet friendly. I probably wouldn't stay there again, but it was a lovely trip.
