About Kathy and Karl Winkelman

South Lake Tahoe is a wonder of the world. From the Emerald Green waters of the Lake on a warm summer day to the snow capped peaks and world renowned Heavenly Valley Ski Resort, we feel we have it all to offer you for an excellent vacation rental. We have made millions of family/friend memories. We love the Lake Tahoe basin and we never tire of vacationing here with endless beaches to visit, ski resorts to visit, historical sites, casino events.

Kathy and Karl Winkelman purchased this house in 1994

Why Kathy and Karl Winkelman chose South Lake Tahoe

Our family is connected to South Lake Tahoe as Karl was raised here, attended South Lake Tahoe High School. We began bringing our three young sons here to visit the relatives and it has become our 'second home' and we extend this home to you for vacation, offsite, retreat, family reunions.

There is access out the door to Powerline Mountain Bike Trail and Heavenly Valley Ski Resort, Beaches, Casinos, are all within a ten minute drive.

Beautiful vacation home

  • 4 of 5

It is a very beautiful vacation home, we had a wonderful stay. It is very near to the Lake and a perfect home for a family holiday. Exactly as shown in the pictures its maintained neatly. As much as we enjoyed at the Lake and in the snow we enjoyed the same inside the home playing Games. This is definitely a place to stay.

Family vacation(9 adults, 3 yr old and 2 infants).

This cabin is a great stay!!! Extremely clean, well kept, and feels like home. It was minutes from everything you could possibly need grocery stores, coffee establishments and of course shopping . At first we were a little bummed that there would be no snow in Tahoe , but we still had a fantastic time! . Four days of nonstop FUN!. In the backyard of the cabin there are some incredible trails. We hiked ,biked, fished, went running and enjoyed the beautiful weather outdoors. We Highly recommended this cabin for an amazing and memorable vacation !

Such a great rental! Even with no snow!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a great stay. Extremely clean, well kept, and feels like home. At first we were a little bummed that there would be no snow in Tahoe in January, but much to our surprise we still had a fantastic time! Four days of nonstop action! In the backyard of the cabin are some incredible hiking paths. The local resort Heavenly produced man-made snow, so there was still 27 available runs for snowboarding and skiing, and also an adventure park for tubing and sledding. The gondola ride to the top of the mountain had breathtaking views. We had a great time at the casinos because they were not packed. We even got lessons on how to play craps and black jack. We visited great restaurants with great food and great bloody mary's! We ice skated and enjoyed the beautiful weather outdoors. All of this was within 10 minutes of the cabin. Highly recommended!

A Great Winter Trip

  • 5 of 5

Just returned this week from a 3 day weekend stay. My family and friends had a great time! There were 6 adults and 4 young children and all found things they enjoyed. The kids will love the sledding hill just off the deck and the adults will love the fact they will not have to drive to a snow park. Wonderfully decorated home as you feel as if you are staying at a friend's house rather than a rental. Secluded enough for privacy yet close to all conveniences in case they are needed. Didn't use the hot tub on the deck, but saw that it was warm, clean and inviting. One of the best features of this property (as there are many) is that there is the attached seperate living space will full kitchen and bathroom which is very unique. I usually stay at Harrahs but decided to try something different this trip and I am happy I did. Thank you again Kathy for the opportunity to enjoy your home and for taking care of all details!
