About the property

House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 4

Come stay at The Prospector cabin when you visit South Lake Tahoe and get ready to have a wonderful vacation! This duplex within the larger Spruce Grove complex is very comfortable, welcomes up to four guests and their beloved dogs, and has access to amazing community amenities like a shared hot tub, large enclosed yard, and a picnic area!

This cabin shares its fenced yard, its hot tub, and the rest of the property with six other cabins: the Bear's Den, Snowshoe, Washoe, Steamer Tahoe, Field and Stream, and Pioneer. A group of up to 34 people can rent them all together as the Spruce Grove Cabin Retreat (please call Vacasa for details).

Located on the east end of town, this cabin is within a short walk of a few restaurants, and about a mile from the slopes at Heavenly, the beaches and sparkling blue water of Lake Tahoe, and the eateries, shops, and entertainment of downtown! What makes this cabin special is its immediate surroundings: a large, completely enclosed, grassy yard where children and dogs can play. Doggy clean-up stations are provided for everyone's convenience and to keep the area looking (and smelling!) fresh and clean. You will love sitting in this common area, enjoying the peace and quiet while the sunlight filters through the tall trees!

Step into this one-bedroom, one-bathroom home to find a cozy living room with seating arranged in front of the gorgeous gas fireplace. Watch some cable TV, use the DVD player, access the WiFi, or simply sit quietly and relax in front of the flickering flames. Just past the living room is a kitchen with all the basic appliances and tools you may need to cook delicious meals during your stay.

Head upstairs to find the bedroom, which features a large and comfortable king-size bed. Downstairs, a queen-size sofabed provides even more sleeping space, so up to four lucky guests can sleep soundly while dreaming of another day of adventures. No vacation is complete without your furry four-legged friends, so you are more than welcome to bring your dogs on vacation with you! Please note that there is an additional fee.

Outside, you can enjoy the shared amenities in the small community. A safe, enclosed yard is a perfect place for children and dogs to roam, guests can use the gas grills and picnic tables to have a BBQ-style meal, and the adults will love soaking in the hot tub and letting the warm water melt away all their stress!

The Prospector cabin is a fantastic place for a small family or two couples to stay while they take advantage of all the amazing activities nearby. You could even invite more family and friends to book the neighboring Spruce Grove cabins and enjoy a fabulous vacation with all of your loved ones!

No matter how you spend your vacation, this cozy cabin with lots of community amenities will keep you happy, well-rested, and relaxed during your visit!

*Please be advised the bandwidth for wifi in this area is limited and unreliable, so please plan accordingly!

Needs updating

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here, years ago when the women opened the property. It doesn’t seem that the property is being looked after properly. The cabin may need an inventory of sorts done, to see what is needed. The Prospector was clean, thank you housekeeping, but I was not happy with the age of the bed/furniture (beyond its years). For the price that is requested nightly, I’d expect basic things to be in order.

Owner's Response: We sincerely apologize for the disconnect that occurred after this guest called in that caused a delayed response. As soon as local management got word of what happened they reached out to the guest and replaced the screws.

Great location &amp; staff!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has a great location in south Tahoe &amp; the staff is very friendly. There is a free ski shuttle that picks up at the end of the street. On our first morning of skiing, we were asking Lauren about where to catch the shuttle, and she was kind enough to offer us a ride to the gondola in her personal vehicle. The cabin is very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. The hot tub was great after a long day of skiing, and the fireplace was very cozy. Chimayo, Cafe Fiore, and Nephele’s are all within walking distance with great food &amp; drinks, as well as friendly servers/bartenders. As mentioned in other reviews (and by Vacasa) the wireless internet connection is terrible- don’t plan to stream movies while you’re there, just hit the Redbox! But this was no big deal for us, we were there for the outdoor activities anyway. . .

Our Tahoe visit

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was so cute and comfortable. I really enjoyed the fireplace and how close the cabin was to restaurants and bars. We had brought our 2 dogs and they loved it! I liked how they allowed the dogs in the front fence area! My dogs also enjoyed all the squirrels they could chase!

Cozy stay!

  • 4 of 5

Ease of travel and proximity to town/ skiing. Great for 3-4 people. Mattress needs replacing and WiFi is inconsistent, as described. <br />

Bring your kitchen basis a for cooking and some additional utensils (spatulas etc) so that you don’t have to do a full shop. <br />

Walkable restaurants, shops, and galleries. Plenty of towels and linens! Enjoyable rental.
