Set right in the middle of the mountain action, this South Lake Tahoe retreat gives you easy access to lake-side fun as well as the snow-filled adventures of Heavenly Mountain Resort. With so many excursions at your fingertips, excitement will never be out of reach.

Four-and-a-half miles from the world class ski destination of Heavenly Mountain Resort, and just over two miles from the shimmering shores of Lake Tahoe, there will be no end to the possibilities of nature-inspired fun to delve into from this vacation rental.

This classic cabin style home welcomes you in with rich wood-beamed ceilings, a custom stone gas fireplace, and plenty of space for you and your guests to lounge around. Put your feet up after a long day of exploring and catch up with your favorite cable show, or watch a DVD on the flat screen HDTV.

Grab a couple of ice-cold brews and step out on the deck to revel in the crisp mountain air. Connect to the WiFi to check the scores of all the games, and then simply let yourself slip into vacation mode.

Set out a few small bites on the breakfast bar to tide the group over, while you get to work on the main course in the galley-style kitchen. With stainless steel appliances and a classic charm of the floral pattern tiles, cooking will be a breeze. Let the dishwasher take care of clean up while you play one of the provided adult games and fill the evening with laughter.

When it's time to retire, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom home has room for everyone to comfortably stay in style. Both rooms boast soft beds and plenty of storage for all of your belongings, and there's even a loft space for even more room to spread out.

During the winter you'll be able to hit the slopes at the Heavenly Mountain Resort in no time! Take advantage of the wide array of downhill runs, Ski School options, and snow-filled activities. With something for every skill level, everyone will have something to enjoy.

When the temperatures start to rise, rent a kayak, stand-up paddle board, or canoe to leisurely paddle through the deep blue waters. Drive down the lush fairways a the Bijou Municipal Golf Course. Afterward, swing by MacDuff's Scottish-themed pub for a cold pint and a hearty meal that will please everyone's eager palate.

Come spend your days shredding fresh powder, wandering through the meandering trails, and getting away from the daily grind at this Lake Tahoe retreat.

The hosts were easy to work with and the house was exactly how it appeared. Beautiful cabin, and a great time!

Great place to stay for your vacation. We recommend it! We have made reservation for Tanglewood Tavern for the last three years.

My husband and I did our first trip with our 6month old and we loved the house! It was perfect for what we needed and was very clean. They only complaint I have...there was no a/c or fans!!!which usually isn’t a problem in Tahoe but we happen to be there on one of the warmest weekends and a ceiling fan or any fan would have been amazing!

C’est une belle maison avec tout le confort et les équipements nécessaires pour passer un bon séjour

Home was cute and close to eateries and shops. We went to Tahoe for my son's hockey tournament and the home was a short drive to the rink. Plenty of room for our family of four. The kids loved having the upstairs all to themselves and the large shared backyard. We were lucky to be there on a weekend with plenty of snow!

Convenient for our trip to Yosemite. Lake Tahoe was a great first stop.

Fine for a couple who wants to go out to eat every meal. Would not recommend for families with small children or for people who like to do their own cooking. Most of the pots and pans should be thrown out and replaced. Nowhere to put your food after you come back from the market. Toaster half broken. I would never have imagined faulting a place for its lightbulbs, but this house has the most bizarre assortment of lightbulbs throughout and most of them would be right at home at a penitentiary guard tower. Blinding. Really bad lighting throughout the house. This place could be so much nicer with a few days of maintenance and a few hundred dollars worth of kitchen items. The good: nice neighborhood, good location, nice back yard, nice back patio, good TV room if you're into that sort of thing, good washer and dryer.
Manager response:
We apologize for these disappointments. We have replenished the kitchen and replaced some items and would have been happy to do so during this guest's stay had they notified us of the need. The lighting is mountain and/or bear themed and matches everything in the cabin. Thanks!

A great place to stay. Well equipped with all you need. Clean. Close to restaurants and shopping.
Karen J. Sep 2017
The cabin is in a great location. The only thing missing was a view of the lake. Sleeping accommodations were very comfortable. The kitchen had all the necessities for cooking meals thus saving time and money.
Ed W. Sep 2017
The house is beautifully decorated with bear decorations everywhere. Really cute in a very convenient location. I would highly recommend for a couple or party of four.

Nice place. Huge backyard shared with other units. Basically across the street from a cool bar called Whiskey Dick's. Not far from a lot of good spots like Camp Richardson, Heavenly Village, casinos, etc. The home itself feels a little older and is fairly dark inside because of all the dark wood. But we enjoyed it quite a bit.

If you stay here, consider staying upstairs and let someone else sleep downstairs. My wife and I heard EVERYTHING our friends did upstairs. It was funny, but then became annoying. Any upstairs movement is super loud in the downstairs bedroom.

Leslie A. Aug 2017
This place is the perfect place to stay if you really want a feel of Lake Tahoe. Theres a ton of hotels nearby but this place is not pricey for a cabin replica. My family and I pointed out how not one single decoration was out of theme which was awesome. There was also extra mattresses provided which was a neat surprise. Backyard is huge, we had volleyball sashes every morning. OVERALL AMAZING

we had a nice stay here, comfortable for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. I wish I had known this property had sleds, as we brought our own. There is a fun back yard area that was nice to play in for the kids, and in a great non-commercial area of tahoe. We left some clothes in the cabin that we tried to get back, contacting them the next day after we returned, however it took 3 weeks for them to resolve it without finding the clothes, so they must have been discarded. Made us feel badly about the huge cleaning fee we paid. All in all, a nice place.

This house was great. The only thing was the hot water wasn't too hot.
Dana R. Jan 2017
Clean, supplied, good location, new appliances, nice decor. Sitting areas for visiting and TV on both floors. Skweeky floors upstairs with no sound barriers which comes with the territory of an older house. Easy check in/out.

Check in and check out was a breeze. I love the pin that they use which won't require in person meet up for the keys. There's two parking spots available for you but we only needed one. This house is located in south Lake Tahoe and this location is super convenient!! There's almost everything nearby. Safeway is a 10-15 minute drive away, the lake is a 10 minute drive away. I also love the privacy that we get.
The decoration is definitely one of a kind! It's so unique and special (I'm from NYC, so everything we have is pretty furnished and modern) This house had the full on camping theme! It was pretty refreshing and cute in my opinion. They provided everything that we needed and more! There's even washing detergent in the laundry room! (I stayed at some other places that didn't provide detergents.) The kitchen was heaven as well. They had all the necessary utensils, pots, pans and coffee machines.
I also wasn't expecting any toiletries in the bathroom but surprise! They did!
Overall I had an excellent stay here and would recommend this to anyone looking for the full experience and a comfortable house.

We stayed at this property last week. Really liked the personal touches and appearances in all of the rooms. It is a good quiet location between Stateline and going towards Hwy 89. Plenty of good restaurants nearby.

Very cute and quiet place. We had so much fun and everything was very clean and nice. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.
