Hot tub, game room, deck with grill, and centrally located!

For the perfect family getaway in a quite family friendly neighborhood in South Lake Tahoe with the perfect combination of coziness and getaway gotta-haves like a private hot tub, pool table, furnished deck with grill, fireplace, and Netflix streaming, this South Lake Tahoe vacation rental is a great place for your family to spend time together. And, with its central location, you can spend time all over town together easily.

Under four miles from Heavenly Mountain Resort, this home puts you in the middle of South Lake Tahoe destinations. If you decide to take the main road to the popular resort and village, you'll pass Bijou Golf Course as well as a few restaurants and the closest supermarket. You can also opt to take the scenic Pioneer Trail to Heavenly. In the other direction just two miles is Magic Carpet Miniature Golf for fine family fun. A six-mile drive to the west takes you to Beacon Bar and Grill next to Camp Richardson for their marina.

Inside the homey retreat, which is hugged by tall pine trees, is a comfy abode with great Tahoe feel. From the private game room with a pool table, TV, and lots of eating, to the furnished deck with a gas grill for a summer barbecue, not to mention the hot tub, this home has everything.

In the family room, you'll have plenty of cushy seating around a huge flatscreen TV equipped with a DVD, VCR, and Netflix streaming with the provided WiFi. Next to the TV is a gas fireplace with a gorgeous stone hearth. Choose a movie from the extensive library or bring the latest paperback to read quietly in the fireside rocking chair.

Beside the living room, you'll find the kitchen and dining area, where you can share homemade meals. In the kitchen, you'll have a dishwasher along with all the basic tools and appliances, plus a slow cooker for added convenience. After dinner, spread out a board game on the table for some family fun.

Sleep soundly in this Tahoe retreat! On this upper level, you'll have two of the four bedrooms and one of the full bathrooms for easy access. In the master bedroom there's a king-size bed with TV and in the guest room you'll have a queen-size bed. Downstairs along with the game room are two more rooms – one with two full-size beds and the other with two twins. There's a roll-away bed for extra accommodations. Next to one of these rooms is the second full bathroom. With room for Eight (with a maximum of 8 guests) this Lake Tahoe lodge is just right.

In addition to the hot tub, WiFi, and other great amenities, there's a huge laundry room where you can store your ski gear and of course freshen up your vacation wardrobe.

Want to explore more of the area? Three-and-a-half miles east is Stateline, Nevada where you'll find casinos and entertainment. For more family-oriented excursions, go seven miles south to Washoe Meadows State Park for hiking trails and picnic spots galore.

If you want a lower-key ski experience than at Heavenly, venture 17 miles south from the home to Sierra-at-Tahoe. South Lake Tahoe attractions number high – you'll never run out of things to do! Please keep in mind that this is a family home and very quite neighborhood please respect your neighbors. There are no parties in this home at any time. (No Batchelor Parties, No Bachelorette Parties, No Fraternities or Sororities.)

This Lake Tahoe vacation rental brings the best to you! Book with your family for a fantastic getaway any time of year.

Loved our stay! Great place to hang out in the backyard patio with the BbQ, Jacuzzi and pool table inside
Daniel P. Jul 2018
The house was in a quiet neighborhood yet was convenient to parks, beaches, casinos, grocery & eateries. The house had a nice sized living area with comfy sofas which was nice for the evening family gatherings. It had 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor that were nice for adults and 2 downstairs that were well suited for the younger set. The lower level also had a pool table and deck with hot tub.

I liked the area. The rooms are nice.
The bottom part of the house smelled like tabaco smoke.

Came for a bachelor party and it was wonderful. Close to casinos, bars etc. Pretty much everything we wanted to do was no more then a 5 minutes uber
Wagdi B. Jun 2018

DO NOT PARK MORE THEN 4 vehicles!! My crew and I were in the middle of unpacking and unloading into the home, when two woman from the company entered the home with no notice or curtesy and began screaming at us that the police were outside to write us a parking violation for having 6 cars in the driveway. Very unprofessionally managed. Then the company attempted to charge me an additional 1000 dollar fine for the citation which I have already appealed with the court house. So basically this company will make money off a city situation by upchargibg you. Beware of this company.

The location is perfect; close to the restaurants and stores. The casino was 10min away and Reno was a hour drive. There was enough room for my guests and the pool table room was a perfect hangout spot.
Chris E. Mar 2018
The cabin was centrally located, comfortable and clean. The pool table was fun, and everyone in our group had a great time. I would stay here again and recommend this rental to others
Andrew C. Jan 2018
Very nice location. House could use some cosmetic updates to embrace 2018
Rose L. Dec 2017

Kim F. Nov 2017
Fun for the whole family. Plenty of room. Clean and supplied well
Alexandria B. Sep 2017
I really enjoyed the location and the hot tub fit 8 people! That was awesome. I liked the pool table and all the games available. It wasn't hard finding a good way to pass the time.
Briian W. Aug 2017
This is a very comfortable house. Walking distance to the lake and beach area. Grocery and restaurants are very close. Perfect location if you plan on exploring the lake. Great home for kids to relax in.
Only complaint was the lack of an ice machine. This was a nuisance.
Liliana B. Jul 2017
The house is very pretty but is not appropriate for familys whit Kids. It has stairs and glass table.

When we arrived at the home, it was very clean. We wanted to bbq, but the propane tank wAs empty. I called the local phone number and they restocked the propane tank. Overall my experience with vacasa was great!
Stephen R. Apr 2017
Overall this property was centrally located. It was nice to have a pool table and the house handyman actually was finishing up draining, cleaning and re-filling the hot tub as we arrived. As far as the condition, well used would seem to fit. There's nothing wrong with having some wear issues as the house is a rental. I would say my biggest issues were with the black mold in the upstairs bathroom, and not just a little spot. None of the lids fit the pans, so be prepared to get creative if cooking here. None of the TV's in the bedrooms worked but the big tv's in the living and game room were nice. Lastly, the bathroom downstairs is broken and unless you hit the handle just right the toilet will run all day and night.
Manager Response:
We're sorry the guests had some maintenance issues during their stay. The property manager will address these concerns and resolve as quickly as possible. We'll post an update when everything is completed. Thank you.
Kelly D. Apr 2017
This house was perfect for our group of 6 but could have easily fit 3-4 more people, so good for larger groups. The hot tub was an awesome touch and the pool table provided hours of entertainment. Great location compared to lake and casinos and easy to get to.
Joel G. Feb 2017
Pool table was entertaining. Backyard was big enough for the kids to play in the snow. Jacuzzi although was hard to turn up temperature. Pleased with home overall.
Ahraun C. Dec 2016
Great place! The location is great for walking, being close to both the lake and various fields. Not near too many lights so it's great for looking at stars and night. On top of that the neighborhood is filled with houses that have one of a kind design. The inside of the house has nothing but comfortable beds and windows that give good lighting. The stove is a bit on the old side but still worked fine. The host left the house mostly clean and did not expect too much from his/her guests.
Walter H. Oct 2016
Nice affordable home with hottub ,close to lake and stores .
Misty W. Sep 2016
It worked for us, everyone had a bed and we felt comfortable to cook and chill as needed. Not as clean as I thought it should be for having a maid/cleaning staff come in and out from 11am to 4pm. Bring your own laundry Detergent.
Carlie M. Sep 2016
If you are looking for a place centrally located for an affordable price, this is a great option. Nothing special about the layout, amenities or interior here. But, was clean and worked fine for our group. 10 min drive to Casinos, 5-15 min drive to beach (depending which one) and centrally located to all the popular spots of S. Lake. Backyard deck was nice with hottie and has partial views of mountains (only had 4 old chairs, so bring extras). Walking trail close by. Interior is old with dirty looking couches and stained carpet. I'd bring slippers! Everything else was clean and decent.
Tiffany D. Jun 2016
Loved this house! Great spot. House is the perfect size for 8 people. We enjoyed the view and the neighborhood. All of our guests were so happy. We would definatley rent this house again!!! Thank you!!!
Silma S. Jun 2016
We enjoyed the house while our stay . The house was clean and in good condition for the most part, the only down side was that one of the beds was broken so it was an inconvenience . The tub is a big plus on the house we had a blast outside grilling and enjoying the tub.
Anand B. May 2016
Fair experience for a family of 8 adults. Bedrooms and elbow room was great???? Pool table and hot tub is an added bonus.
Amanda S. May 2016
My party was 8 women and a baby. We were coming to Tahoe for a laid back bachelorette weekend. We intended to hike, and enjoy the lake. The weather was too cold for spending any time at the lake, but the house had a lot to keep us busy and we really had a great time. The hot tub was wonderful, and the pool table was entertaining. Having the rooms separated with some upstairs and some downstairs made it so that we could put the light sleepers on a whole different floor than the baby just in case she cried. I got to sleep in what would normally be the "kids" room with Star Wars and Minions on the walls, and the bed was comfortable and warm. It was really perfect for our needs. There was plenty of space for the whole lot of us to get ready, and mirrors strategically placed in enough places that we could all get ready at once when we went out! Also, our favorite part, was the incredible huge and well appointed laundry room! I got some serious laundry room envy in that house! Altogether a wonderful time, and I would recommend Trout Creek to any group!

I recently rented the Trout Creek Retreat property located at 838 Placer Ave. South Lake Tahoe, CA. from 4/20/2016 – 4/24/16. We found the property on VRBO and based on the property description and reviews it was a perfect fit for our vacation.
I have used VRBO for all our vacations for several years and have been a very loyal and satisfied customer with past property rentals, however this property was extremely disappointing and embarrassing for me as we invited another couple and raved about our past experiences.
After we arrived and entered the property the carpets were extremely stained in the living room and there was no evidence it had been recently vacuumed prior to our arrival. The downstairs pool room carpeting was absolutely appalling and heavily stained from drinks spilled throughout.
The bathroom on the upper level had mold spores located above the shower as well as the corners outside the tub next to the toilet.
Below I listed additional discrepancies.
TV in the master bedroom not working
Kitchen floor dirt buildup around the base of the refrigerator.
Dishwasher not secured in the cabinet.
Trash cans in the garage full and not empty prior to our arrival.
No extra bathroom supplies.
No dishwasher soap.
Chairs in the dining room were sticky from previous spills.
In closing, the property needs some serious attention and these issues need to be addressed prior to future rentals.
Manager Response:
We apologize that housekeeping appears to have been lacking prior to this stay, and we are sorry to see that there were some maintenance items as well. The Property Manager will be sure to follow-up on both so we can be sure this continues to be a lovely place to stay.
Raquel R. Feb 2016
My kids love the billiard table . A lot of space for everyone. Easy accessibility to fun places!
Marcos B. Feb 2016
The home was perfect. The whole family and friends had a blast and can't wait to go back.
Amanda K. Feb 2016
Great spot for a family or group of people- nice neighborhood near lake, restaurants, snow resorts, casinos, etc Rental service was helpful & easy to use. House & private hot tub were very cozy while backyard and pool table provided the perfect recreational outlet. Would stay again.
Tatiana P. Jan 2016
We spent a great time at this beautiful, comfortable and well-conditioned house. We will definitely rent it again :)
Kellee H. Jan 2016
The house has plenty to offer for a group of 10 or so, great location, backyard view. It was completely overshadowed by the lack of follow through and cleanliness of the house beforehand.
Manager Response:
Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to see that the home was not properly cleaned for your stay. This guest was refunded for this mistake, and we want to assure our guests that missed cleans are rare. This home is great for a large group, and we look forward to sharing it with you!
Scott C. Nov 2015
Great place for a family or two lots of room and things to do when not at the slopes or visiting the lake.
