Brand new custom guest house is in the heart of it all. It’s a perfect home base for everything Tahoe has to offer. 175 steps to the Lake, 7 minute drive to casinos, or just 5 minute drive to the slopes! We designed this home with our skier & water-sports friends & family in mind. The home is surrounded by private wildlife conservancy & Tahoe conservancy lands. We regularly see bears, bald eagles, coyotes and more. Home is on quiet semi-private street. Surrounded by Lake, Mountain & Forest views
Best location in South Tahoe! Walk directly across to the Lake from home (just 150 steps!), and 2.4 miles to the Heavenly ski lifts! You will be 2.3 miles to the casinos for nightlife and drinks, the Heavenly Gondola, and the Heavenly Village. .
The home was built with modern finishes and furnishings. The reclaimed barn wood and beam accents give the home a modern rustic feel, and the natural light from all of the windows really brighten the space.
The kitchen has tons of counter space and high end stainless steel appliances.
In the Kitchen:
Kitchenaid Convection Oven/Microwave
Cuisinart Double Induction Cooktop
Large Refrigerator with IceMaker
Oversized Stainless Steel Sink
Small InstanPot (plus cookbook on how to use)
Large Breville Smart Oven
Electric Griddle (great for making large pancake breakfasts
Pots, Pans, Dishware, Glassware, Bakeware, Utensils, Cutlery
Salt, Pepper, Cooking Oil, Coffee
The bedrooms are not just for sleeping! (Though our 400 thread count sheets and super plush pillows don’t hurt..) It’s also the perfect place to curl up for a movie. We have Cable in Master and Netflix streaming service for you in both rooms, so now you just have to choose between West World and Frozen. Good luck. 😉 There is a CalKing in the master and a Queen bunk bed (weight limits only allow for 100 lbs on top bunk).
There is a washer and dryer in the home, just for you! Throw your ski socks in the dryer 5 minutes before you put your boots on and you can thank me later 🙂
The bathroom has been designed with all of our cousins, nieces, and nephews in mind! It is not a conventional layout but was designed to get an entire family on the slopes for first chair! 2 people can shower (if they don’t mind the buddy system), 2 people can brush their teeth/shave/dry hair, and one person can be using the water closet (that is a room with a toilet) all at the same time. We have solved the problem of one person tying up an entire bathroom making everyone anxious to get on the hill and get first chair!
There is 1 uncovered parking space just outside the home.
We also have a locked storage shed where you can safely store your skis and boards.
There are bike rental and Paddle Board rental shops just a blocks away. We will get back you QUICK for booking requests, we will not make you wait 12 hours to hear from us 🙂
Instant access to the lake, beach and the Tahoe conservancy trail and lands. The private wildlife reserve behind the home is off-limits but is spectacular to watch from the deck.
You have a completely separate and private entrance and will have a completely private stay and use of the entire 2nd story guest house.
Interaction with guests
Only as much as needed by guests. I do enjoy sharing knowledge, insights and favorite spots with visitors. Feel free to text me with your questions about the area and attractions. I want you to feel like you already have a friend in Tahoe!
Other things to note
The only parking that is allowed by the city is the one space we provide. No parking is allowed on the street since it is designated as a “fire lane” because of how narrow it is. Host lives in main home adjacent to guest house but will not disrupt your stay or interact with you or your guests unless there is an emergency or you have a question or concern. The Garage is used for owners’ cars only. In the winter you are just a few minutes drive to the lifts and in the summer you can walk to the beach and paddle board drop-in location.
Melissa – I am a full-time South Lake Tahoe local. I LOVE this mountain and can’t wait to share it with you! The south shore of Tahoe has everything you could want on a vacation (that’s why I never left). Things I love to do: snowboard, paddleboard, trail run (also have gotten into obstacle racing), and riding my beach cruiser around town. I do SEO and digital media when I am not outside playing. I can talk your ear off about vintage Airstreams, 70s disco music and baking. I will do my best to make your stay here feel like your family 🙂 If you need any help planning your vacation I have lots of great “local” tips to share to make your stay here more fun and less “touristy”. I’m also a bit of a food lover and know all the best places in town to get meals. Places that no guidebook will ever mention. Let me share my love of this town with you! “A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” ~ Robert HeinleinSee Owner Profile
