New listing! Cozy, dog-friendly, mountain home close to skiing & hiking trails

Nestled in a quiet neighborhood less than eight miles from Heavenly Mountain Resort and six miles from the Lake Tahoe Marina, you'll have a variety of adventures right at your fingertips. Outside, enjoy cooking tasty treats on your gas BBQ, while inside, prepare full-course meals in your well-equipped kitchen. Cuddle up by the wood-burning fireplace in the cozy living room and enjoy the large, flatscreen TV with a Sony Playstation game system.

What's nearby:
Take a walking adventure on the trailhead that starts at the end of Oneidas. When there's a chill in the air and snow covering the mountains, make the quick trip over to Heavenly Mountain Resort to shred some fresh powder as you race down the slopes. During the warmer months, start your day with a round of golf at Lake Tahoe Golf Course or Edgewood, then head down to the shores of Lake Tahoe to play on the beach. And in the evenings, take everyone over the stateline into Nevada for a night of mouthwatering dining and gaming at the casinos.

I loved that this home was centrally located. It was so quiet and peaceful and allowed me to bring my dogs. The one and only thing I might mention is that the beds are not the most comfortable but not awful either. I would definitely rent this home again!

The house was cozy and perfect for what we needed it for.
The price was also affordable.

Although this cabin is a bit dated, it is quite adequate for a stay over in South Lake Tahoe. Located on a quiet street among the trees, the neighborhood is well kept, and there is a very nice paved trail nearby, perfect for walking the dog, which is another bonus for this cabin - it is okay to bring the dog along to join the family on the trip!

It would be nice to have newer beds - they are a bit stiff and squeaky. However, despite that, the cabin is a great retreat for a long weekend, or for a week away from home.

We spent several days here for the Thanksgiving holiday. We had our two sons, and one daughter, with two dogs to boot, with us for the week. The kitchen is great. There is plenty of room to cook the meal with a full sized oven and microwave, and an electric stove top to prepare all the dishes for the meal. It would be nice to have a few more pots & pans, but there are plenty of utensils, and a dishwasher as well.

The living room, dining room, and kitchen area are all open, and accommodated our cohort quite well. There is a nice big screen TV with a Playstation for playing video games, or for watching a movie on Amazon Prime or Netflix. No doubt someone would know how to go elsewhere as well.

There are plenty of resources nearby for groceries, eating out, and state-line is quite close for those who want to go over to Nevada for the casinos, etc.

In all, this is a nice cabin, and Vacasa gave us great service and support. We appreciated the accommodation very much.

So happy there..

Over all, I love the location. I definitely think that the whole house needs an update. Kitchen fan or light did not work or the back yard light. The area where the house is located It is very peaceful. Very clean.
Manager response:
Hello Maritza, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

House was well stocked, everything was clean enough albeit old. It was a decent base camp for a few days in the snow. Heat doesnt really radiate to the bedrooms - only 1 room has a heater.

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin. Wanted to get away for a couple days to enjoy the snow with our 3 year old and dog and our dog. Cabin was the perfect size for our little family and provided everything we needed. Loves that it was in a non busy quite neighborhood. But we weren’t too far away from amenities either. We would stay there again.

The cabin is in a good location, but it's not nearly as nice as it looks in the pictures.
My 1st impression when I pulled into the driveway was not good. There's a snowmobile with a broken windshield sitting on a trailer parked to the left of the house - it's covered by a torn up tarp, and that's quite a bit of trash on the ground nearby. Other things outside the home that should be taken care of: broken floorboards and nails sticking up on both front porch and back deck; remnants of broken apart plastic shed still sitting there in the back yard (it's basically a pile of trash that needs to be fully torn down and hauled away). The inside of the house is indeed old as another reviewer commented, but that wasn't the issue - the problem is that it is need of a thorough cleaning (the hardwood floors were filthy, there were cobwebs around the fireplace, giant balls of dust under the TV stand, and mouse droppings in the pots and pans), and several things need to be repaired/replaced (screens missing from bathroom and back bedroom windows, light fixture missing from ceiling fan over dining table ... there were wires dangling from the fan, front windows don't lock). A few things didn't work at all: electric fireplace in front bedroom, electric recliner in living room, Netflix streaming on TV) - or perhaps they do work, but with no instructions on how to operate things, they were useless and just contributed to my overall level of annoyance with my experience at the cabin. 2 other inconveniences: curtains in bedrooms afford no privacy, so had to hang blankets as another reviewer mentioned, and coffeemaker requires pods (not noted in description anywhere).
Plenty of supplies like towels, dishwashing/laundry/bath soaps; bed and sofa was comfortable; enjoyed the fireplace and fast wifi (although the password in Vacasa app was wrong); all the major appliances worked, and appreciated having a washer/dryer. The location is nice - love that the entrance to the forest was just a 2 minute walk away (took my pup there for a nice long walk each morning). I really wanted to love this cabin, but instead found it disappointing. If it were cleaned more thoroughly and maintained better, it could be wonderful.
Manager response:
Hi, Sheri! We are so glad you stayed with us and are disappointed to read you had any frustrations with your visit. The housekeeper has been retrained using your comments so we can make sure the home is meeting our cleanliness standards. We are reaching out to the homeowner about the shed and other outdoor items. Thank you!

This cabin is really cute although it’s pretty old because you can hear every step you take all through out the house it is well kept. My only issue is I wish it had a gated back yard or some sort of dog friendly place
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Daisy! We welcome your feedback and appreciate the opportunity to better improve our homes for future guests, and have notified the local team with your suggestions. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your visit and hope to host you again in the future!

Location is great. Not far from beaches, restaurants and activities for the whole family. Place is nice and cozy. Relaxing back deck. Neighborhood is quiet. Easy check-in. Kitchen was well stocked. Had everything I needed to cook daily meals. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the bedroom curtains did not cover the whole window, we had to put blankets up as curtains.
Tia M. Jul 2020
The cabin is great to have a place to go back to and rest after a long day at the lake or hiking. The cabin is located in a quiet area away from the busy area of South Lake Tahoe but is still convenient to get to quickly. It has the basics that are needed to cook, extra bedding and towels. It would be helpful if they included a general information book on how to work the amenities of the cabin. The dishwasher and dryer did not work when we were at the cabin, the maintenance team was able to fix the dryer but not the dishwasher. There are no dish towels or dish rack for drying dishes and that would have been helpful. Other than that we had a great stay at the Saponi Cabin.
