The Pioneer House is centrally located on Pioneer Trail close to Heavenly Ski Resort and the casinos such as Harrah's or Mont Bleu. The home is located on over an acre of land and has a very large fenced in private back yard. Your group can walk across the street to hiking trails. This home has everything you need for a fun vacation in South Lake Tahoe.

Availability: We try to update the calendar daily. If this home is booked, you can still call or email about availability. And, I have other vacation homes in the area that may fit your needs as well. And, if all my homes are booked, I have friends who have similar sized homes that may be available and fit your needs. So, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Weddings and large events: Unfortunately, per South Lake Tahoe city ordinance, we are not allowed to have large events at the house. We are not allowed to have more than 16 people at the house with a maximum of 6 cars.

Pet Policy : There is a one time $100 pet fee to bring your canine family member. Some people are allergic, so you may ask when the last time a guest was at the house with a pet. Most guests do not bring their pets. It happens only about once or twice a year. Many of my guests are flying in from overseas or other parts of the country.

              Car: Necessary

              This home is centrally located in South Lake Tahoe off Pioneer Trail. It is about 3-4 miles west of Heavenly Ski Resort. The casinos such as Harrah's or Mont Bleu are about 3 miles from the house. The beautiful blue Lake Tahoe is only 2 miles north of the house. There are fantastic restaurants all within a couple miles. If you want a fun restaurant where you can create your own dish, I would try Fire and Ice. Or, if you want finer dining, try Riva Bar and Grill. They are lakeside and have a fantastic view.

              Across the street from the house, there are trails into the woods for a great day hike. If you like outdoor activities such as frisbee golf (frolf), there is a course at the park less than a mile away. If you have never been horseback riding, you can do that in Tahoe and it is only a few miles from the house. You will ride slowly along highland trails that have amazing views of the lake and the surrounding Sierra Mountains. It is a great way to spend the day.

              Or, if you want more leisurely activities, take a day cruise around the lake with your family and/or friends. It is a fantastic way to spend a day. then, come back to the house and enjoy a BBQ, then maybe a relaxing soak in the hot tub!

              There is also fun filled nightlife available. Not only are the casinos 24 hours, but, you can dance until dawn if that sounds more pace.

              Whatever you decide to do, you can do it all within a few miles form the house. And, no matter what you decide, I am sure you will have a great time enjoying it with your loved ones.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: My name is Charles Seidel and I am a private owner - not an agency. I grew up in New England and moved west about 20 years ago. I love all sorts of outdoor activities, such as hiking, camping, skiing, biking, running. I love to travel and lived in Denmark for a few years. I am part of the Young Scandinavian's Club (YSC) and have met many bright, fun, kind, and overall wonderful people. I am fortunate to be married to a beautiful woman! We met in an outdoor Boot Camp in San Francisco. I was married in Lake Tahoe and it was a beautiful ceremony. If you have any questions about the homes, or Lake Tahoe, you may call me anytime on my cell phone. I update the availability calendar at least once per week. If this home is booked, you can still call or email about availability. I have other vacation homes in the area and I also have friends who have similar sized homes that may fit your needs.

              Why the Owner Chose Pioneer Trail:
              I love the homey feel about this house. It is great for families. It has a very large fenced in backyard, which I think is perfect for those outdoor BBQ gatherings. You can set up a net and play volleyball, have a family whiffle ball game, or maybe play a game of croquet. It has the type of back yard perfect for creating those summer family memories. You can go on some great hikes across the street or down the street. Just walk right out the front door. I like how the kitchen, living and ding areas are all open, so everyone can be together. And, if you still need to do some work or want to share a few funny youtube videos with your mom, the home has high speed wireless internet and lots of games: pool table, ping pong, foosball, TV's, shuffleboard, and hot tub.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              As you know, this home has a very large fenced in backyard. And, you can do some great hikes across the street or down the street, just by walking out the front door. But, one thing I really like when I bought the house, was the rope swing in the back yard. It creates the feeling.. kids .. of all ages, should be here!
