My Home is a Charming 3 bedroom 2 bath Tahoe chalet, nestled in the woods, with Mountain and Forest views. There is a private year round out door Spa surrounded by a private deck. The property is fully fenced and in the summer the back yard is covered with green velvet grass, with a BBQ and Log Picnic table.

There is sleeping for 1 on the log futon couch. The living room also has a large flat screen TV with a surround sound system that's great for watching the over 150 DVD movies the we have personally picked out!

The dining room has a large picture window and is decorated with a log dining table with log chairs, and a cozy warm wood stove(Winter Only).

The sun room has large picture windows with beautiful mountain and forest views. For sleeping this room has a Day Trundle Bed(2 Twins) and a breakfast nook table. It's a great place for morning coffee.

About Jennifer Johnson

I grew up in South Lake Tahoe. My mother still lives in the home I grew up in. My husband and I bought the property as a our vacation home before we moved to Florida. We currently live in Florida in the winter and spend the summers with my mother in Lake Tahoe, leaving our vacation home available year round for friends, family and a few selceted renters

Jennifer Johnson purchased this house in 1985

Why Jennifer Johnson chose Tahoe Paradise

We bought our vacation home for us, and our family to use. That means we bought our home because of the great location, beautiful views, and unique floor plan. Not because it was cheap, a foreclosure, or an investment we can sell later. We have owned our home for almost 30 years, and each year we lovingly upgrade, remodel, and improve our home without changing the wonderful Tahoe and mountain charm. We especially enjoy adding new family treasures to the charming Tahoe decor of family antiques, log furniture, and Bear and Wolf themed rooms. While keeping the Tahoe charm we have added the modern conveniences we have all come to expect, like wifi, 3 flat screen TV's, surround sound with 150 DVD movies, a cute country kitchen with updated appliances, a fully equipped laundry room that most of us would love to have in our own home, and a great out door spa that will melt your troubles away. Our home has beautiful mountain and forest views (one guest told us the view from the floor to ceiling windows was like living in a tree house). The fenced in back yard, in the summer, is a velvet green of grass with a BBQ and a log picnic table, and in the Winter, it becomes a Winter Wonderland for young and old alike. We picked this property as our vacation home for it's location, close to beaches, skiing, stores, casinos and all that Tahoe has to offer year round, without giving up the reason you are vacationing in Tahoe in the first place, (Why stay in a home that has a view of the back of the neighbors house), our home backs to open forest service land without a house in sight, in a beautiful upgraded neighborhood with easy access to it in the Winter. Come make our home your your home, just like one of our guests who has been vacationing in our home for over 18 years.

Beautiful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

First off Jennifer made booking so easy. And allowed us to check in early. I got an email at noon that house was ready. One of my grandchildren had gotten car sick on the way and we were so happy to check in early.When we arrived there was a complimentary bottle of wine for us to enjoy.(much needed after long drive)House was immaculate and clean. The decor was so cute my grandaughters loved the Bear room. I loved the sun room where i could sit and look at the twinkle lights in the trees at night. Hot tub was very clean and private.backyard all fenced in so kids couldnt get out and they could play while we were inside cooking.House is well stocked with everything you would need. From towels to kitchen pots &pans . We enjoyed alot of time outside drinking coffee and relaxing at the patio table. Checkout was easy as well and quick. House is beautiful and hosts are wonderful. Thank you again for a memorable 3 nights. Loved the tree face!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Even though we found out a day before we arrived that the spa would be out of commission, we still managed to thoroughly enjoy the cozy and clean home. Jennifer is very communicative so it felt like you were staying in a home someone truly takes pride in. We had everything we needed for prepping meals, as well as staying warm with additional bedding. We loved our stay very much. The internet didn't seem to work very well at all but that didn't put too much of a damper on our weekend. We will look to book this home again one day! Thanks again Jennifer.

Meyer Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is clean, comfortable, and in a wonderful location. My family had a wonderful time. We were able to ski and snowboard everyday and the kids who are never tired even sledded every evening. Jennifer is a wonderful host and posted detailed instructions throughout the cabin. There are two rooms on the main floor, a sun room, and a downstairs bedroom. The downstairs bedroom has a kitchenette and private bathroom. After a long day skiing the hot tub was wonderful. Highly recommend this cabin. I will definitely come back.

Cozy, quaint home is a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here - the house was incredibly clean and had very cute decorations everywhere. The large DVD collection kept us entertained, and the hot tub was the cherry on top of every night of our stay. The only bummer was that you have to go outside to access the downstairs honeymoon suite, but it's a five second walk down the stairs, so it wasn't bad at all. Plenty of towels and other resources (soap, shampoo) were provided, so you don't have to waste space packing those! There is tons of activity nearby in South Lake Tahoe, and there are multiple ski resorts within a short drive as well (there's a ski rack right outside the front door too!). Jennifer was very responsive and made sure everything about our stay went smoothly. It was a wonderful stay overall!

Clean, Roomy and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was wonderful. The house was very clean which is my highest priority. It had everything we needed: kitchen appliances and cookware; laundry room; fenced in back yard. It was a 10 minute ride to the grocery store which was convenient. It was located close to everything whether you want to head to the casinos or to the North Shore. We would stay here again.
